This is a happier Friday then usual, tonight at 5:30pm my best friend’s daughter gets married! I am over the moon excited! My son, Nolan is home for this even as he is the “Man of Honor” – never heard of this before? It’s basically the way a bride has her best male friend play an active role in the wedding party.
Definitely a favorite is having my boy home and later today our youngest will be home as well! My mama heart is happy and full.
A favorite purchase from this week – this wonderful smelling reed diffuser. It smells just like the ever popular Capri Blue Volcano scent. I bought two and gave one to my sister in law as a hostess gift last week when we went over for Easter. She texted me later to tell me how much she loved it! With Mother’s Day coming up – as well as Teacher Appreciation Week, this would make a terrific gift! Grab this here. They also have candles in the same scent – I ordered these and just can’t get enough!
My love for all thing Chico’s is running strong this spring. I am very fortunate to have been gifted so many wonderful items and that has given me the opportunity to really fall in love and be able to recommend them to you. So many great items are on sale right now – never pay full price if you don’t have to!
Another favorite this week is all the furniture painting I’ve been doing. I know many people like chalk paint – I’m not opposed to it but I LOVE mineral paint from Dixie Belle. I have painted three pieces of furniture in the last week with one small jar. It’s easy, no prep work involved, doesn’t smell, and dries quickly. I love the effect – it is fool proof! If you have a hard time finding a retailer in your area, you can get the paint from Amazon. I used the color, In The Navy. Take a look at the before and after photos for all the pieces I recently painted:
On Wednesday afternoon I had my first pedicure in over a year! I also got gel nails – I don’t plan on maintaining them. I got them for the wedding this weekend and to help with the fact that all the glue from trying to get the glue on nails I tried, left my nails an absolute wreck! I met my best friend Melodie and we were able to chat – she is the mother of the bride!!!
This favorite is for all those who struggle with trying to figure out Instagram. I joined InstaClubHub and have found it so beneficial. Chalene Johnson and her son, Brock, are so helpful and address EVERYTHING Instagram. They have tons of short tutorials to help you figure out what to do, when to do it, and how. Check it out for yourself here. Follow me on Instagram so you can check out what I am learning and how I am implementing it!
Well that does it for this week. I can hardly wait to share wedding photos with all of you and to enjoy the weekend with my family! I hope you have a great weekend as well and thank you for stopping by!XO,
