Happy Friday darlings!!  This week has been rather intense for me, but I’m feeling very grateful and blessed.  Every week I share pictures (from my cell phone, via Instagram, or my digital camera) of things that made me smile.

These are some things that made me smile this week:

  • My mom’s look of surprise when seeing the birthday gift I got her!!
  • Making Hershey’s Kisses filled cupcakes for my mom’s birthday (which is major considering my lack of backing skills or interest; I just like to eat the sweets, lol).
  • Bright pick polish in Fall (Ulta: Flamingo).
  • Bright colors, stripes, a bow, and a wrist soiree.
  • The finished product of my children’s book page illustration assignment; hope I get an A!
  • Rainy and gloomy weather, something we don’t get often in Houston.
  • Launching my little store, Consider(ed) Lovely (first mentioned in this post)!! Click the red “Shop” button to see (and buy) the product :-).

Do tell lovelies, what are some things that made you smile this week?
