Is It Christmas Yet?

Well...I have been doing a lot of online shopping lately....simple because I am so tired at the end of the day that I do NOT want to go anywhere else! It's much easier to do everything from the couch...right?! RIGHT! Anyways...I have been finding lots of great things that I might just have my eye on for Christmas...

Here is some eye candy for you to make the day go by a little faster:
I love this Fleur De Lis trench from Francesca's! How cute is that?! All of the black on it is made up of little fleur de lis' all put together! If you know know that I am obsessed with fleur de lis! It's just so classy! Plus...this is only $78! WOO HOO!

I have gone to two weddings in the last few months and showed up with almost the same identical dress (color and style) as the bridesmaids...I think it might be time to find a new wedding-going dress! I think this one from Forever21 is super cute and would work just fine! It's called the Rustic Metallic Lace Dress and is only $22.80! What do you think??

We have been kind of looking for a new comforter for our guest bedroom but don't want to change up all of the accesories in there. The comforter we have right now is Casey's comforter from's so comfortable...but i think it's time! It's a big dark plaid Ralph Lauren comforter. I found this duvet from Pottery Barn that I think I really like and we could keep all of our red accesories in the room! It's called the Catherine Paisley Duvet. Does it look Christmasy???

I have been wanting this book since it came out this year! I think it's such a cool coffee table book! It's called Dancehalls & Dreamers. I am a huge Texas Country music fan. I have grown up araound family even owns a Texas Country music radio station! It's so much fun! Texas Country is a completely different beast than Nashville country! Anyways...this book talks all about the Texas Country musicians and the big honky tonks that they play at! I would love to own it! You can find it on Amazon or if you live in the Fort Worth area...I know that they sell it at Billy Bob's! (Cara Beth....I figured you might enjoy this too!)
Okay...I'm going to need the new Kate Spade 2010 calendar! How stinking cute is that?! I love the cover with Audrey Hepburn's picture painted in the background! I found this calendar online at FredFlare for $22!

I love this little jacket from Fred Flare too! It's the Navy Ruffled Hamptons jacket and it's $86! I think it's perfectly preppy and kind of different!

I have had my eye on this little Fossil watch for a while now! I am hoping that I get one for Christmas! I love the white band...I always like my stuff a little different than what people normally have. I think the white band will be more fun than just a silver or gold one!



Well...that is all I have for now! You can wipe the drool off of your desk and get back to work! :) I hope you have a wonderful day and have been inspired by my fun finds!




I am SO sorry that this is WAY delayed!!! I kept forgetting all about it!!!

The winner of the stationery giveaway from Jayme Fort is MORGAN at Help You Help Me! Go check out her little blog! It's super cute! Congrats Morgan! I cannot wait to see which stationery you pick out!!

I will be in touch with Jayme and will pass on your contact info to her so that you can get started on your order! :)

I hope you all are having a great Monday! Mine has gotten off to a rough start...those fourth graders are CHATTY this morning! Good thing they had to scoot off to Art at 9! But, they will be back soon and hopefully some of their energy will be gone! My coffee wasn't so good this, i didn't drink's a long morning! :)

Our weekend was good....we went home to a wedding and to see our family. We have really been contemplating moving back to our hometown for the last year and thought we might try to this coming summer. We love our hometown and love that all of our family is there. But, I think this weekend made us realize that we are NOT ready to make that move yet! We love the town and it's a great place for kids to grow up....but some of the people...just kill me! A big part of the town is very pretentious...and you just don't even want to get stuck talking to some of the people there...they just wear you out! Casey and I are both just not ready to be immersed in all of that yet. We like our privacy that we have right now and love that we can go to the store and not see one person we know (it IS nice to see people you know every once in a while...but when you just want to go out looking like crap....not so nice!). We have decided that for's just a nice place to visit! I mean it IS only 2 hours away!

Well....back to teaching...I am going to try to make myself blog more this week!!!

Don't worry....I promise that I am about to post the winner of the super cute stationery very soon! I'm not going to lie...I was really busy this weekend and TOTALLY forgot about it!!! But...thank you for all of your wonderful entries! I cannot wait to see who won!! :)

Here is where I need YOUR help! My good friend Brittany is now hosting Scentsy parties! She just sent me an invite to an online Scentsy party and I really want to order something from her to help out her business. But....I have never smelled ANY of the Scentsy stuff! I already have the warmer that I want picked out..... and I need something that smells good to melt in it!! Please let me know what your favorite scent is!
If you want to know more about Brittany's venture with Scentsy and want to be invited to her "online party" in order to make an order....leave me your email address and I will make sure that the invite goes out to you! :)
On another note...I am thinking REALLY hard about joining the Stella and Dot jewelry team! If you have never heard of Stella and's the CUTEST jewelry line ever and pretty well priced! They have been in InStyle, New York Times, many other magazines, and even know for the last Bachelorette wearing their jewelry all of the time! So tell me...if I started this new venture...would YOU buy from me????? (wink wink!!)
Hope you have a wonderful and blessed day! I cannot wait to get ideas on scents from you!!
