Goings On & Friday Link Ups

I am SO glad it’s Friday and I have a 3 day weekend to spend with my boys! Yippeeeeeeee!!! We don’t really have any exciting plans, right now I just want to get rid of this head cold/sinus problem that’s been going on.
I am in love with Lolly Wolly Doodle on Facebook. They are the cutest shirts ever! Here is Connor in a Christmas shirt we got (I think it was around $10 bucks?) So cute!

She has one too and she said we can both wear them & think of each other 🙂 She also sent Connor a shirt and some “Pirate beads” Thank you Aunt Bonnie!D7K_4032 D7K_4024 I’m also loving these ruffle sleeve tops from LuLuBug Boutique. It’s also another Facebook boutique. Such cute stuff for little girls and Moms too! PicMonkey Collage1515 One of my other favorite bloggers Kelly is having a “Show us your Life” cleaning tips! I cannot tell you enough how much I love Barkeepers Friend! It works amazing on your pots and pans, or any kind of metal or hard surface in the home. It’s very cheap, but works GREAT!

Every Woman Needs a Little Bling!

Today I wanted to share some of the lovely bling that the ladies and I have been wearing lately.  It’s from Silpada jewelry.  I had never heard of this jewelry line until my co-workers told me about it.  One of the girls joined as a distributor and is now selling it.  It’s great quality silver pieces that will last for years.  Silpada also works great with other pieces of jewelry you own.

I’ll let you take a look at some of the pieces we tried on.  Also, check out the great way you can layer the necklaces.  The pictures don’t do the jewelry justice.  They are so sparkly and gorgeous!

If you’d like to order I’m hosting a Silpada party right now and would love for you to check it out HERE D7K_3867 D7K_3864 D7K_3863 D7K_3862 D7K_3874 D7K_3872 D7K_3870 D7K_3869 D7K_3880 D7K_3878 D7K_3877
