WILW & Oh, How Pinteresting


I'm linking up with both Jaime for What I'm Loving Wednesday and Michelle for Oh, How Pinteresting Wednesday today - Love these girls!

~  I'm Loving that I finally ordered our Christmas cards from Tiny Prints with a photo that Jenny was able to take of us and the dogs last Friday.  It was such a tough decision choosing the design but I eventually found one that worked perfectly with the photo and I even added a little something extra to the back.  I can't wait to get them and send them out!

~  I'm Loving that I'm now an Independent Scentsy Consultant and my shop is open for business!! 

~  I'm Loving going through all of our honeymoon photos and can't wait to share those with everyone very soon.  I may have to share those before I show the wedding photos since I think I still have another week and a half before I even get to view those myself.
What do y'all think?  Show the honeymoon photos before wedding photos or wait to show them until after?

~ I'm Loving all these holiday crafts I've seen on Pinterest and want to try.  I'm hoping to finally do some Christmas decorating this weekend and I can't wait to spend cold nights snuggled up with my hubby in front of the Christmas tree!

Happy Wednesday y'all!

I sell Scentsy!


I am an official Independent Scentsy Consultant now!

I had been looking for the perfect opportunity to start selling Scentsy and felt like I needed to wait until after all the wedding shenanigans were over before I made the commitment.  I'm so happy to have something to put some time and effort into now that wedding planning is over since I feel a bit lost not thinking about flowers, officiants, dresses and hair!

At the moment I'm still learning everything involved in being a Scentsy consultant but my shop is up and ready for business!

Scentsy products are truly amazing and I'm so excited to begin sharing it with everyone. 
If you're still looking for the perfect gift for a loved one this Holiday season then please check out all that they have to offer by clicking on my button above or the direct link below.
If you have any questions feel free to contact me

Happy Tuesday y'all!

I cannot believe that Thanksgiving is now past and we're less than a month away from Christmas!
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend that was jam-packed with lots of quality family time.  Thursday morning I woke up super early and started on the white-chocolate macadamia nut cookies and oreo truffles I was contributing to my Mom's side Thanksgiving meal.  We spent the early afternoon celebrating (and stuffing our faces) with Allen's family and also celebrated Mason's 4th birthday while we were all together.  Thursday evening we went to my Gramma's house to eat again, play games and celebrate with my Mom's side.
On Friday I went and chopped 5 inches off my hair and I'm in love with it!  Then we went over to Jenny's house so she could snap a quick photo of us with the dogs to send out on our Christmas card.  We left there and went to my brother's house for a little fire-pit fun with everyone.  We also played a round of hand & foot before realizing it was past 1 am and we all had to be up early again for another round of Thanksgiving.
Saturday morning I woke up early again and made another chocolate peanut butter pie and some bacon jalapeno poppers to take over to my Dad's side for Thanksgiving.  We ate more turkey and played more hand & foot.  Later in the evening, Allen and I left to go spend a little more time with his parents and had even more turkey for dinner.
I have to say that our 1st Thanksgiving as Mr. & Mrs. went very well!  I'm very thankful for the amazing family I have and all the blessings God has given me.

I hope your holiday was wonderful as well!

Just stopping in to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving!!
We're splitting our day today with Allen's family and my Mom's side of my family and then Saturday we're celebrating with my Dad's side.  There's lots of turkey and dressing to devour and I'm ready to get this wonderful holiday started.
Last year was one of my favorite Thanksgiving holidays ever but I know this one is going to even more amazing now that I'm a Mrs.!
Enjoy your holiday to the fullest and be thankful for all God's blessings.

Happy Thanksgiving!!
