Great Deals!

Lately I have been on a bit of an earring kick...I have always loved jewelry, but for a long time it was the same thing every day. I almost always wear my diamond necklace because the diamond came from one of my grandmother's earrings, so it is special to me. As a result I don't really have a thing for necklaces, although I have a few, I just don't typically buy them. Earrings are a different story...I am always a fan of cute new earrings, and the funky ones are the best.

I have found two designers who are absolutely fabulous, and have great prices as well. The first is Sharla of Sharma Designs...you can check out her blog on my sidebar, and her Etsy shop here. I bought some of the cutest earrings from her back during the bloggy carnival, and this week I bought some more because she is having a sale. Head on over and check her out...you won't be sorry! After your first item shipping is free for anything else you buy...can't beat that!

The second designer I found is Karen from A Bowl of Beads...you can check out her Etsy here. She also has great prices, and shipping is very reasonable! Jodi and I racked up a couple of weeks ago from her shop. She has great designs, and with her prices you can afford to accessorize several outfits!

Tell me those aren't just awesome! I am so excited...can't wait to wear both of these, and the others I ordered as well!

All Grown UP!

I honestly can't believe that my sweet baby girl is 2 years old today! It just doesn't seem possible. So much has changed over the past two years, and I can honestly say most of it has changed for the better! Look at that sweet smile! That was certainly one of the most joyous days in my life to this point, and I am so thankful for every moment I have with Alexa!

This picture just makes me laugh...Both of them covered in cake! :) Their personalities were just beginning to form, and for the most part they get sweeter every day.

Then I took this picture this morning...it's from my phone so it's not the best quality, but tell me she doesn't look so grown up! She barely looks like the same child. Jodi did a great job on her t-shirt, and I can't wait to see the two of them together on Saturday! Alexa is having a great day at daycare...she took cupcakes for her party at school today. :) When I talked to her teacher at lunch she said Alexa tried to throw her plate away because she wanted her cupcake. What a silly girl! She is developing the sweetest personality, and she is really funny too. Thank you God for the last two years you have given me with Alexa, and I thank you in advance for the many years we have together in the future!

I promise I will have some other pictures to post this weekend!

So, to Alexa on your 2nd birthday, I just want you to know how much mommy loves you, and how truly blessed I am to be your mother. God has given me such a wonderful gift in you, and I couldn't be happier about it. I love you with all my heart, and I will always be here for you no matter what. I can't wait to see what this next year holds for you as you continue to grow and develop. I know you are enjoying your dance classes, and I can't wait for your recital!! Just remember that there are lots of people in this world who love you, and are here to support you. As you continue to grow and learn, remember that God loves you and He always will!

I hope you have a wonderful birthday baby, mommy loves you so much!

Too Busy!

I am just too busy! Too busy to blog, too busy to clean, too busy to exercise (ok maybe that's just lazy) too busy to scrap...too busy for everything! I hope one of these days I'll actually get on here and update, but I'm not making any promises because my life is so crazy right now.
