10 Reasons I'm Smiling Today!

Ten Things to Smile About
Link up with Emmy Mom!
1. I am back at school this week and I can't believe it. Why does summer feel like the quickest season??? We teachers were here for Monday and Tuesday having meetings/cleaning/organizing and today is the second day for the kiddos!! New school years feel like fresh starts to me, and I kinda like it! Time to make new school year goals!

2. I am having a Silpada Jewelry party next week... and do you know what the best part is!?! Even though you guys don't live near me and can't come to the physical party, you can still order jewelry! Isn't that coooool. Christmas is coming (haha) and jewelry makes great gifts! I will put up the link in the next week or two. For now, check out some of the jewelry!

These are a few of my favorite things!



3. I have something I am super excited/ a little nervous about that I can't share yet... but I wish I could! I will as soon as I can, promise!

4. My bro and niece are coming to visit this weekend from Michigan and I CAN'T. WAIT. They will be here when I get home from school today and I am crossing my fingers that today goes quickly!!

5. My bro went through a divorce last year. As far as divorces go, it wasn't the worst in the world, but he did have a tough time dealing. He is doing better now and met a new girl who has twin six yr old daughters. They are also coming this weekend and I can't wait to meet them!!

6. I can't believe it is September 1st!! Aaah. Who is ready for Fall?? I am, but if I can have one more weekend of summer this Labor Day weekend, that'd be great!

7. During Hurricane Irene (*which was basically just a rainy day in my area*)I cleaned my entire house and I love coming home to clean houses!

8. Pumpkin coffee and donuts coming back to Dunkin Donuts. I like to save that treat until October 1st/cooler weather... but it is still exciting!

9. Fellow bloggers blogging again now that school has started!

10. Now that is is September, I am back on a more regular schedule and will post pics of my summer adventures in the coming weeks!

Paigie Waigie Puddin' Pie

My cousin had her baby last night!!

I am so excited!
She was born at 5 am at 7.5 lbs and 18 inches.... My mom, a few others cousins, and I were at the hospital until 2 am waiting, but we had been there since 6 pm and didn't make it all the way until she was born (of course the new daddy, grandma, auntie, and uncle stayed)...

We went back and saw baby and her momma this morning though, and she is adorbs. Momma and baby are doing great!


Introducing Paige Madeleine!


So precious. I can't wait to watch her grow up! Welcome to the family, baby girl!
