JCrew Sale!

Good morning and happy Friday! So excited for a little reprieve from the working world this weekend to spend some time with friends (keeping my fingers crossed that the 20% chance of rain forecast is true so we can bask in the sunlight tomorrow) and to work on plans for a shower I'm throwing for a friend! Just in case you weren't aware and were itching to do some shopping this weekend, JCrew is having 40% off already marked down sale items! There are a TON of cute things at unbelievable prices so I plan on scheduling in some time to narrow down my faves, which I've gathered a few pictures of! 

Happy last weekend of July (where has the summer's almost football season!)

Christmas in July

It's Christmas in July y'all! If you're in the Tallahassee (or Tampa) area, our Coton Colors Flagship stores are having a pre-holiday savings event through Saturday! The deals are as follows: all holiday pottery (including the new 2013 collection) 20% off, if you buy 3 ornaments you get the above pictured Believe ornament free, spend $75 and get the below pictured ornament storage box for free; there are also multiple other deals on stationary, bags, and baby items! Basically, you don't want to miss this opportunity to either get yourself or someone else stocked up on holiday entertaining decor! At least stop in to get a treat we're whipping up from our Coton Colors cookbook and to see some new items that we just got in! Happy shopping and happy Thursday!

Bookworm Wednesday

I finally was able to crack this book open and though I'm only halfway through, I'm already entranced by the spunky main character Starla. She's a 9 year old red head with an adventurous personality and a heart made of pure gold. Her storytelling techniques and bold spirit make for quite the entertaining novel, pulling you deep into the depths of its charm. Tough situations pertaining to racial issues in southern Mississippi arise, but Starla's innocent outlook on life and her ability to see past color makes for a heart warming story of friendship and love. Highly recommend!

In regards to yesterday's post, I have another blog that I've been reading a lot lately that a sweet friend recommended to me called Little Green Notebook. It contains a variety of budget friendly DIY projects and useful tips for when performing said projects! Happy reading!

Blogs I Love

So here's a confession. I sort of have a slight addiction to reading blogs. My morning routine involves fixing my husband breakfast, eating my breakfast while reading a devotion, making my coffee, and scurrying as fast as possible back to bed with my iPad in tow to catch up on all the new blog posts. I just find so much inspiration from the photography and content showcased at different sites, which in turn assists me in the creative department. Here's a list of my top must read blogs and do share if you have some of your own!
