Monday, new jewelry, and a {GIVEAWAY!}

Happy Monday!
Happy Veteran's Day. We're so thankful for our freedoms.

We had a really busy weekend. Christmas orders are pouring in.
Who are you people that are on top of things so much that you're doing your Christmas shopping already?!
I like you. And I'm a bit jealous of you.

Today all three kids are at school and The Man is home from work.
You know what this means?! Alone time!! (get yer mind out of the gutter...)
We've waited like 12 years for this.
So you know what we did? Went back to sleep. Got up late and had our coffee at 10:30.
And now our big plans for date day include cleaning and house projects.
We're crazy exciting people, y'all.

We got a bunch of new jewelry designs listed last night.
Here you go -

Just The Two of Us


All You Need Is Love


Come Fly With Me keychain


Free Spirit necklace


Dream GOD sized dreams


Bless Your Heart


Bloom necklace


Hope Shines or Love Shines


I am Not Afraid, I was Born To Do This necklace (my new favorite!)

These are lovely, Beki! I really like the Bloom one<3

Also, we don't have thanksgiving here, so I guess I'm not ready either.

I'm ready especially cause it is at my brother's house so I don't have to host!

Debby said...

As far as being ready.....I'm not. At least we know our plans. Probably something small for the actual day with HUbby and one son then our offical dinner on the Sat. after.
Love the new pieces. I hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving with your famialy.

merlin said...

I am ready to have first born home from college, but not ready for anything else...still need to order the turkey!

Christina said...

Love this post...we're just as wild and crazy. We had a date night that was hosted by our church on Friday, free child-care, and we got take-out and watched Lonesome Dove. :) I had thoughts of cleaning, but...the show won out.
We are getting our Thanksgiving Dinner out. Please don't judge, there's a reason! :)

No way I am not ready! I am hosting at our house on Saturday. I currently have one bag of stuffing. That is it. That is probably plenty to feed everyone though. I don't even know how many people are coming!

Hong Kong doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving so we try to gather all the Americans we're friends with and celebrate over the weekend. We've got 28 people coming and my oven is tiny. I'll be making turkeys all weekend. :)

Love the new designs and love the little circle with heart cut-out!

I am SO not ready for Thanksgiving. Don't have my work schedule yet, and while I thought being home for the first time in three years would make things better it's just more people to try and schedule. I know it will all work out, but it's just not there yet.

RaettigFamily said...

I'm starting to think about Thanksgiving. Wasn't sure if I had the time off until last night (work at a nursing home) so I wasn't sure how prepared I had to be. Getting excited now!

Danielle said...

My heart is totally ready for Thanksgiving but my body still has a few things to do. Love you, sweet friend!

Definitely NOT ready for Tgiving! It's early this year!
