Monday Moments of Gratitude - August 29, 2016

Monday, August 29, 2016

I'm so happy you're here!! 

I'm making a point to post on Mondays about moments I am grateful for in the past week. We can all use a little more intentional thinking about things we're grateful for. With that said, I hope you'll continue to join me in gratitude on Mondays :)

Here are a few moments from this past week that I am grateful for:

Getting styled by my best girl - as a part of the "styled by..." series with my Blended Blog friends, I let mini-me dress me for a day. I was super curious how it was going to turn out but girl surprised the heck out of me! I think she's got some talent and it's clear she loves vibrant colors as much as her momma.

she had to "fix" it once I had it on... this kid kills me

A new (ad)venture - I signed up to be a stylist with Stella and Dot! I had been eyeing up a few (okay, more than a few) pieces to add to my accessory collection and decided that this is one venture I can totally get behind. Worst case scenerio is that I end up with a bunch of new stuff and as if I can ever have too many accessories?! I'll be sharing/styling pieces on the blog and sharing stuff time to time but don't worry, it's not a total blog takeover :) If you're not keen on shopping but want to support me by liking my Facebook page, that would be awesome. Feel free to hit me up with any questions

Girl-time - little miss and I had to go and buy dance shoes for her upcoming dance class (I think I may be more excited about this than her). I figured we'd make a little date of it so we followed up our trip to the studio with some tasty ice cream. Love hanging out with this sweet and stylish little gal of mine.

A surprise day off - Thursday one of my coworkers jokingly asked if we could switch days off. I was supposed to be off next Friday (before the long weekend) but didn't have any plans so I said she could have it. That meant me having this past Friday off. I was SUPER productive and got laundry done, toilets cleaned, floors scrubbed, bed linens washed and changed, muffins baked (from scratch) AND groceries done!! House is already a mess, but it felt good to have it clean for an afternoon lol

Birthday celebrations - I turned another year older this past Saturday and had the perfect day. It was a wonderful combination of alone time (with some pampering), some family time and some time with friends! I also received an abundance of beautiful messages and a super thoughtful Blue Jays themed gift from my friend Andrea (check out her blog, she's great). I am a very VERY lucky lady all around.

First of all, that bottle wasn't ALL mine as it appears in the picture (there were a few of us)! Second, that cake was UNBELIEVABLE!!

Here's to another amazing week - Happy Monday friends!!
