Happy Monday, friends! Hope you all had a restful weekend. I was cooped up working on my final projects for class, but did find a minute to gather up some goodies for the newlyweds (or couples) on your list! I think something personalized is so much nicer as a gift than something generic. What’s your go to gift for a newlywed? Something similar to what I’ve rounded up? Or something completely different?
My little niece Emmi – isn’t she the cutest?! – turns seven today! She is a gem. Tough, but girly, sensitive and thoughtful. She has a gift of knowing when you need a hug or smile or hand squeeze and is always doling out the sweetest compliments to give your confidence a boost. My sister and I recently had Emmi along on a shopping trip to Forever 21 and she LOVED it. It was the cutest thing. She obsessed over everything glittery, sparkly, pink, and “cute.” Leah and I believe we have quite the fashionista in the making. As we neared the checkout Emmi locked in on all the beauty and accessory items and quickly started asking for EVERYTHING. So, this year I loaded up on girly gifts for her and am hoping I hear a squeal later today when she opens them. I’m not 100% sure what I’ll get her for Christmas, perhaps some books for the budding reader she is becoming. Regardless, these items are sure to please any 7, 8, 9, or 18 – maybe I’m pushing it here – year old.
Taking a break from my gift guides today – hope you all made out like bandits with the Cyber Monday deals. I think I went a little overboard. But I did finally mark some people off my list! Only a few more things to get and I am good to go. Today’s post is a bit of a celebration as I finally completed my materials notebook for one of my classes – confetti is being tossed here. It’s the last project for a class that I actually really enjoyed. I have three more projects to go before the end of the semester next week. I’m stressed, but I am confident I have it under control. As I promised in a previous post I am sharing the final product with you all. It’s a compilation of pretty images – minus one, I couldn’t find a great photo of a portable stage, I mean, come on – and sources to go with them. Some of them are local while some are great online resources. Take a look and please feel free to share any resources you have found around the web or locally. I would love to hear!
Black Friday has passed and no we’re on to Cyber Monday. I have done my fair share of shopping the past few days and I can’t say I’ve crossed that many people off my list. I’ve been gifting things to myself or buying accessories for the house -oops. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite sales going on right now so get to shopping!
