What I am Loving Wednesday!

Wednesday, June 24, 2020

Hey friends!!!

Happy Wednesday!!!

How is your week going???

We're just cruising right along over here! 
I will tell you- that I almost started frantically searching for day camps for ALL of my kids yesterday- until I realized there are no day camps because of dang COVID.
It was just ONE OF THOSE DAYS.
If I could have packed them all up in one giant suitcase and sent them off to my mom's house- I would have. HA!

ANYWAY. Today is a new day and I am thankful for that!

I wanted to share a few things that I am loving as of recently!!

Several of them are from small business owners, which I just love!

First up is this neutral colored, beaded cross bracelet. I have been wanting a chunkier, everyday cross bracelet and I was so excited when I found this one on Etsy! I ordered it from the shop, BeadedBlues. So here's a fun story....I ordered my bracelet and then a day later, got an email from the owner of the shop telling me that she lives in the SAME TOWN AS ME! How coincidental is that?! I was able to do a porch pick-up and save on the shipping charges- which was great- but it also made me SO happy to know I was supporting a LOCAL artisan! 
Next up are these super FUN and encouraging postcards I ordered from Crew and Co.
I have been looking for some fun cards to send to friends or to give to someone when I drop off a meal- and these are just PERFECT!
You can totally send them in the mail as a postcard or put it in an envelope with a Starbucks gift card to sent someone you love a little boost!!
And finally, I wanted to share these candles that I recently ordered from Southern Elegance Candle Company! I learned about these candles from Laura of Laura Cox Collections, when she was sharing about Black owned small businesses. When I went to the website I was SO excited to find out these candles are made right here in North Carolina! 
These candles came extremely well packed and they smell WONDERFUL. Not over powering at all...but they definitely have a good, strong scent to them. Does that make sense?! HA!
I have burned 2 of the 3 scents I have ordered and I love both of them! 
I am so excited to have found this company because I just realized in the past couple of months that I experience a really negative reaction to Bath and Body Works candles!! 
So does my husband! Our noses start running, we get super congested and it's just SO weird! Anyway...the Southern Elegance Candles burn super clean and we've just really enjoyed having them lit in our home!!
Okay- switching gears from small business goodies to something you can pick up at Ulta! :)
I have been using this conditioning mask by Wella for about 2 years now and I can't believe I have never mentioned it before!! In the winter months...I use it about once a week- but with us swimming almost every day and my hair just feeling way more dry and damaged...I use this as my primary conditioner. It smells AMAZING and a little bit goes a long way. It makes your hair feel SO healthy and soft and did I mention it smells AMAZING?!

It's definitely a little bit pricey...but I feel like it's totally worth it! I always try to get it when Ulta puts their professional hair products on sale!
This graphic, made by Lauren Winter, who has the MOST inspiring Instagram account- you can find her HERE- really struck a chord with me.
I don't know about you- but when I feel like someone is just trying to "bypass" what I am really telling them or sharing how I am feeling- with an empty "I'll pray for you" or "God doesn't give you more than you can handle" - it leaves me feeling SO unseen. I just LOVED how this graphic showed what it means to "bypass" someone and to truly VALIDATE them. 
And finally- I am LOVING these doll beds my husband made our kiddos a couple of weekends ago SO MUCH!
All of the kids (with the exception of my oldest daughter) are VERY into their American Girl Dolls. The boys even have boy dolls from Target's doll line (you can find them HERE)!
Anyway...they were all looking at the American Girl Doll catalog and decided they all NEEDED dolls beds. HA! Well...their daddy is the BEST and he agreed to make them all a bed for their dolls instead of spending a million dollars on five dolls beds from the American Girl store. HA!

Didn't they turn out so good??! 
Aaron really is so talented...we are the LUCKIEST!

Okay. That's what I am currently loving these past few weeks!

What about you??
What's ONE thing you have been loving lately??

Hope you have the BEST day!

    1. EFFECTIVE AND POWERFUL LOVE SPELL CASTER DR JUMBA +19085174108
      I feel so blessed again in my marriage after Doctor jumba brought back my husband that separated with me for a good 6 months. My husband separated with me for 6 months and I have been in pain and agony without him. So, i searched for help everywhere but nothing worked out not until i meant Doctor jumba who i contacted online. I explained my situation to him and he promised that my husband will get back to me within 24 to 48 hours as far as my heart still beats for him. I believed in him and he prepared a spell for me and my husband called me exactly when Doctor jumba said. He pleaded and said he needs me back and now we are living happily again for the past 9 months. Everyone out there reading my article that needs help should contact him. via call : +19085174108 or wiccalovespelltools@gmail.com for more information check out his website : https://drjumbaspellhome.wordpress.com/

  4. Those doll beds are so sweet!! American Girl stuff is pricey so that's really special he could make them something they will play with for years to come. I've been really impressed with the Target line of American Girl like dolls. Olive has a couple of them and they're so cute.

  6. My name is linda james, and I base in Canada. My life is back! After 2 years of marriage, my wife left me with our two kids. I felt like my life was about to end i loved her so much, and was falling apart. Thanks to a spell caster called dr Ogala, who I met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet, I was searching for a good spell caster that can solve my problems. I came across series of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb, some testified how he cured them from their diseases and so on. There was one particular testimony I saw, it was about a woman called grace, she testified about how dr. Ogala brought back her Ex lover in less than 72 hours and at the end of her testimony she gave dr. Ogala e-mail address. After reading all these. I contacted him with his via email address and explained my problem to him. In just 3 days, my wife came back to me. We solved our issues, and we are happy again. Dr Ogala is really a talented and gifted man and I will not to stop publishing him because he is a wonderful Dr...If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell throw to solve that problem for you. Try dr. Ogala today, he might be the answer to your problem. Here's his contact: drogalad02@gmail.com or +2347049668119 Thank you once again
