Giveaway from HeatherlyMade & NataliexMarie :)

Hello lovelies! Greeting from Asheville :)
We are having a fantastic time and meeting tons of great people.
I actually left my laptop at home,
but I stole my moms for a little while,
and was greeting by the following giveaway....
HeatherlyMade and NataliexMarie
(two of my favorite people in the world)

are hosting a giveaway of some of
their fantastic handmade wares...

I am particularly excited for the winner of this giveaway
beacause of the button earrings
(of which, I have a pair of my own ;P)
and crocheted coasters (beautiful colors,
and you would win a set of four).

Click on either picture above to visit HeatherlyMade and
enter to win this giveaway for yourself!

Fall is.

That first breath of fall air,
that randomly hit me throughout the day today,
renews something inside of me
that's been dormant since summer started.

Don't get me wrong,
I love the summer sun,
and the beaches,
and the freckles popping out on my skin,

but it is fall I love the best.

Fall with it's crisp air
and brightly colored leaves
that herald the holidays to come.

Fall is beautiful.
Fall is magic.

Fall is here.

Guess what I'm doing?

Packing for Type-A Mom Con!

SaraSophia, my mother,
and I are headed to Asheville, NC wednesday :)

I am super super excited.

It's been so long since I've been
anywhere with "the girls",
and I SO need the vacation,
even with the mini one I just had :P

In addition to the conference,
we're touring Asheville along
with the beautiful Biltmore Estate:

It's going to be so much fun :)

Is anyone else attending?

Oh, Summer.

It was lovely,
but now it's over.

And with it, my 21st year.

Friday was my birthday (which was fantastic, btw),
and even though I've been swamped with homework,
housework, and life in general,
my lovely Superman and my darling sister
SaraSophia took me camping.

The following is a few snapshots of our night...

P.s. Another favorite SOON, I promise!
That is if September doesn't kill me first :P

Not-so-wordless Wednesday.

I have officially become overwhelmed.

I have TWO major exams tomorrow,
work/church tonight,
AND I haven't studied nearly as much as I need to.

Who knew school full time + a job would be so darn difficult?

I will be updating tomorrow afternoon (hopefully),
and will be replying to everyone's lovely comments then :)

Have a fantastic wednesday!

Thanks! :)

AmyKathryn Giveaway!

This adorable bag (pictured below)
is up for grabs at Just for Me...And You

I hadn't ever seen AmyKathryn bags until I saw this post,
but I have to tell you, they are beautiful.
Especially my favorite one (pictured at the top).
AmyKathryn's bags are eco-friendly AND animal-friendly.
and have been featured in several magazines,
including Life & Style, Veg News, and Orange Coast!

They're definitely worth a look at,
and you could even win the one pictured above by
going to JFM&Y's Giveaway!

Vacations are yummy.

Summer Vacation, originally uploaded by Little Rosy Runabout.

So, lots and lots has been happening....
school, new job (nanny to three adorably silly kids) :

and now finally, I'm on vacation!
For the first time in over a year I'm in
SC at my grandmothers house and I already feel better.

Sometimes you just have to take a break, you know?

I slept the entire drive here...
I must not be getting enough sleep during the week :P
Althought I'm sure passing out at the
blood drive on Tuesday didn't help much!
(that's yet ANOTHER story for another day ;P)

Exhaustion still abounds however,
and yes, even on vacation,
I have tons of homework to do tomorrow,

so I'm think about calling it quits early tonight.

A lovely evening to all.
