My List of Awesome

I'm going to keep things as short and sweet as possible today. It seems like not as many people read blogs on Friday.. do you all not work today or something?! It's much quieter in blogworld on this day of the week, that's for sure. So no wasting time today, let's just jump right in with five awesome things I want to share today.

ONE: I am SO excited to announce the winner of my Christmas in July giveaway. Mandy - you are the winner of a free custom blog design!!! Look for an email from me soon :)

TWO: Jared and I finally made all our puzzles permanent. You know, the ones that had been taking over our kitchen table for FAR too long. Next step, finding frames for them all.

THREE: This necklace that I won from Hallie's giveaway! I'm obsessed! This necklace is going to be my new go-to piece of jewelry, I just know it :) It's so delicate and dainty!

FOUR: I realize that it's JUST now August 1st, but I am so ready to bust out all my fall candles. Don't judge ;)

FIVE: I'm hosting a fun dinner/games night at my house today to kick off Kayla's birthday week and let's just say - she is going to LOVE what Jared and I have up our sleeves for tonight. Can 6pm just get here already?

  7. I'm just going to repeat what everyone is saying, but...that necklace! It's so dainty and cute. I'm such a sucker for anything state related. And obviously "E" is the best initial. Ever. ;)

  8. I totally just finished a candle, and when I looked at the scent b/c I wanted to buy a new one, it was "Mrs. Claus' Kitchen." Ha. So. I apparently it's Christmas at my house. Light em' up! ;)

  11. I am right there with you on the candles! I bought Cranberry Pear and Silver Birch, which are technically Fall scents but I figured they would be nice for the end of summer. I'm kind of ready to start my Fall decorating too!

  12. I went into Bath & Body Works the other day & they have the first couple of Fall candles starting to come in stock... I stood there sniffing them for at least 10 minutes. I'd walk away, then go back just to get a whiff of apple and cinnamon and pumpkin. It's a problem.. I'll be getting mine out of storage soon, I think.

  27. YAY! We need it all say a quick thank you to the blog gods! For some reason your blog HATES me and for the last week my computer has completely frozen/shut down whenever I open your blog from bloglovin! I don't know if it's your page or just bloglovin (since I always go to your blog first, it might just be a coincidence!) but I am managing now to actually read a whole post and so far comment without freezing for too long! Anyways...1 totally don't judge you for the fall stuff, I know we won't have a fall here but I'm definitely going to make it smell like it! 2. oh my goodness that Ohio Necklace is too cute!! and 3 Kayla is so lucky to have you!!
