A picture says it all

Holiday touches... for all holidays, not just Christmas

Gearing up for Valentine's Day around here! I like to swap out little things like hand towels for holidays and different seasons. I think they are just cute details that people notice. The little things you put into your own home are the touches that make it warm & inviting! But let's be honest, even if no one ever set foot in my home, I'd still do this bc details make me happy :-) What decorating details do you add to your own space?

Love is in the air

What a beautiful day in Fort Worth! Cool temps & sunny skies! I enjoyed a nice walk downtown & a stop into Barnes & Noble. I went with the intent of picking up the Complete Guide to Weddings from The Knot, but I also found a ton of other things, as per usual in a bookstore, right? I picked up a few cute finds from the bargain rack including a novel about a wedding girl (obsessed much? Lol) and an inspirational read on how to be a leader (a girl's still gotta work during this planning!). I skipped my usual Starbucks & opted to walk across the street to the Cupcakery. I dove right into the wedding planning guide, and my chocolate cupcake, and sipped my hot coffee.

Ahhhh! Such girly fun today ;-) Now time to walk home super fast! It's cold & I'm packing an unnecessary cupcake!

Happy 2013!!

Oh my goodness! Can you believe it is already halfway through January?? And it's my first post of 2013?! Haha just like me to already be behind! Sooo... Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a very blessed holiday season! I'm excusing myself from my lack of posts these first 2 weeks of the year, only because life has been crazy busy since I GOT ENGAGED!!!

Everything has been a complete whirlwind! In a good way, of course ;-) Chris and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary on New Years Eve, and that is when he popped the question! I'll save the juicy details for my wedding website (coming soon!!), but I will tell you, it was just as I imagined... simple and classic and romantic! Yes, Chris got down on one knee and everything ❤❤❤ And the bling! OMG! I'm so in love with my ring! Pictures online don't even do it justice! It's so sparkly and vintage-looking and even includes two sapphires, which he knows I love. I wanted something original, something I had never seen one of my friends with... I like to be extra sassy and stand out! ;-)

On top of this MAJOR news, I have other major news in my professional life! I have made a decision to move myself up into leadership! I already manage a group of amazing girls, and I'm making the decision to just keep adding more!! I WILL be a sales director in Mary Kay, and I'm SO excited about the opportunities that lay before me! Yes, that's right... that means I am saying there is a free Pink Cadillac in my future!! I have known in my heart for a long time that this is the direction I would be taking, and I am stepping out of any fear and taking on the challenge in this, the 50th anniversary year for Mary Kay! Making this move now will help me to contribute so much to my future husband and future family! Chris and I have big plans and big dreams for the future, and this is going to be amazing in helping us to realize those dreams!

I can't believe how unbelievable lucky I have been so far in the new year! I know 2013 is going to be so great and I'm excited for these new journeys I am beginning! This year will probably be a crazy rollercoaster but I am so ready for it! I am abundantly blessed by my God and it takes my breath away how He is working in my relationship AND in my professional career!! My He also bless you and yours in the new year!
