big news!



So the big news doesn't seem so BIG to me now as I've adjusted to the idea, but we will be having a houseguest come September...a 15 yr. old girl from Germany to be specific. Her name is Celina, and we are very excited she will be staying with us! She wants to experience a bit of US culture and get better at English, and my head is swimming with fun ideas for us to do during her stay. All ideas welcome if you have any! I am thinking Biltmore, Opryland Hotel, maybe Hilton Head, and Mellow Mushroom of course. I know that sounds ridiculous, but that pizza is so stinkin' good I can't let her come here and not taste the magic. Right now we are cleaning out the bonus room, and making some serious plans for a fab guest room for our new sista. Smiling.

the problem with shopping

After organizing my closet and getting rid of a LOT of clothes that either don't fit/aren't me anymore/or aren't age appropriate for me as I'm turning (gasp) 30. So I recently filled in some holes with a few cute shirts, two perfect dresses (one for church one for party), and yes some jeggings. The problem with shopping is that I keep finding more things I like or sigh...love while I'm out. If I'm sitting in I'm blissfully unaware of the super cute things out there. Here are the things I have my eye on....
Jewel Tiered Necklace Shell


Wide Stripe Ruffle Tank

And finally this necklace I sooo want for my 30 birthday with an H swirl charm (for Hallie), a girl silhouette (for Natalie), and a March birthstone (for Ben). Michael wanted to know why he wasn't represented on the necklace, and I said b/c the charms are $45 each!
Also, BIG news coming soon!!!
