Oh so Thankful

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

It's so easy to forget and take for granted all we are blessed with. I hope you all take a moment to really soak in all that you have, or don't have for that matter, and just give thanks. Although we should probably do this more often, I think holidays are the perfect reminder for us to "check in" once in a while.

Today, and every day, I'm so thankful for...

1. My main squeeze...and ALL that he puts up with.

2. Our incredible (large!) family. I feel so blessed to be at an age where I can sit down with so many generations all together. From grandparents the baby nephews, it's pretty great.

3. Our Friends...who pretty much are family and inspire us every day.

4. A job that I love and am lucky to have.

5. Our home & Miss Brooklyn

6. Those that we've lost... and to have at least had them in our lives, even if it felt too short.

Wishing you all good health, happiness, and many thankful moments!

Free Coffee Fridays!

Happy Friday Everyone...

I've been stopping at Cumberland Farms for my morning coffee every once in a while.  Today, we ran out of creamer, so I figured I'd just stop there on my way into work. The coffee there is pretty good and only $1 (sure beats spending a small fortune on Sbux).  I was so excited to see that they are having Free Coffee (any size) on Fridays for all of November... I just had to share the good news. ha!!

ducduc's Design a Nursery Competition!

Although I can't wait to be a mom one day, right now...I can. Ha! Baby steps people (cheesy pun intended).  Luckily, I have the most amazing niece and nephews so I'll just "borrow" them until we're ready for that time to come.

I got this e-mail the other day at work from ducduc, a children's furniture store that carries the most adorable, modern pieces.  Since so many of my friends are mom's, moms-to-be, or even for those aunties out there, check out this cute design competition.  There's a chance to win up to $4,000 for the winner! ....Or, at the very least, find some inspiration from the contestants. :)

Design Your Dream Nursery with ducduc, as part of our "Express Your Style" Contest with Olioboard and Layla Grayce.     Winners will be selected by stylemaker Molly Sims, for up to $4000!     Click to enter!

The rug came! (well...a few weeks ago!)

Remember the area rug I bought on rugsusa.com? Well it came a few weeks ago! Unfortunately, I haven't been posting lately because it seems that October has been one busy month between work and catching up with friends.

I took a quick pic of the rug to send to a friend today, but will post some better shots at a later date. I really love it! I think it's a perfect fit with the white wainscot and gray walls. It's so comfortable and thick compared to the last one. It's wool but luckily you can't really see any shedding... that is until you empty the vacuum! Also, it looks a little more gray in the picture than it is in person.  It's actually more beige but not as dark as the picture from their website which I was pleased about.  Nonetheless it was definitely a good purchase.
