Jug of water {water bobble}

I am a water bobble lover. When I spotted the Jug I knew I wanted one. The tough part is deciding which color! The main highlights of the Jug: filtered water, BPA free, recycled, compact design. I will be checking out my local Target to see if they carry it in stores. You can purchase online here.

day dreaming

The weather has been incredible for this time of year. All the warmth has me pondering a tropical getaway. There are so many places I would love to visit around the world... it is difficult to narrow it down!

A Fav {Anna Beck}

This Christmas I was gifted an unique gorgeous anna beck ring {which I am obsessed with}! Each piece is handmade in Bali using ancient Balinese techniques. There are so many pieces from the collection I am dying to add to my own collection. Once you peruse the website I am sure you too will want your own unique piece!

Wishing everyone a very MERRY CHRISTMAS. May your weekend be filled with lots of love, joy & fun with those you love. 
I have waited years for my dream of becoming a mother to become a reality. This year my heart has been abundantly filled with love & gratitude. Becoming a mother has by far been the greatest joy of my life. I cherish each day with my sweet growing babe {oh how I wish I could slow down time & capture each breath, movement, cry, babble & smile and never forgot the way I feel at that exact moment}. I love our birth mother more than she will ever know & I can not adequately thank her or repay her for the greatest gift she has given me. I know miracles do happen. I am thankful that our Heavenly Father has answered our many many many prayers. This is the happiest I have ever been!

A super thin tear drop ring would be perfect to mix in with my mixed metal stack of skinny rings. Hoping I get a ring or two for Christmas! Pick yours up over here.

Peanut Butter Bars {so tasty}

I made the most delicious Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars this past weekend. Super easy recipe found via pinterest.  Very sweet, rich & creamy. A small bit will satisfy your taste buds! I sure hope my neighbors enjoyed them as much as I did. {I modified the recipe a bit, I did not use as much butter as called for & I left out the graham crackers}

sparkle away

When I stumbled upon Lulubelle's hand made sparklers I could not help but think of all the fun my sister and I had as children playing with sparklers every fourth of July. I knew this had to be a new tradition I start with my own children {once little O is a bit older} for Christmas. The Christmas tree shaped sparkler is perfect for Christmas!
