Hey darlings!!  How are you doing on this Friday?  I hope you’ve had a wonderful week!  My week has been pretty busy and productive, and I am glad the weekend is here. TGIF!!!  By the way, am i the only one who remembers and misses TGIF Fridays on ABC when shows like “Family Matters” and “Full House” came on? lol I don’t have any major plans for my birthday this weekend, aside from having some of my favorite ladies over on Sunday evening, but I am looking forward to relaxing and spending time with my loved ones.  I’m just happy to be blessed to see a new year!! Every week I share pictures (from my cell phone, via Instagram, or regular iPhone camera) of things that made me smile.

These are some things that made me smile this week:

  • Doing some shoe shopping (both of these babies came home with me)!!
  • Going on a mini road trip with my mom down to the beach where we spent two days hanging with family, and she drove, which was major, as I usually tend to drive her around :-).
  • My pastel nails done in a hurry before we left for the beach. (pardon the mess around my cuticles I didn’t have time to clean it up around the edges, lol)
  • Playing in the sand; it felt so good between my toes, hehe.
  • Looking up in the sky in seeing God’s beauty in the clouds!
  • Snacking on a long time favorite :-).
  • Looking down at my DIY cap-toe pumps while running business errands. (more DIY deets in this post)
  • Seeing the awesome bracelet set my girl Shira, owner of Goddess Lounge, made for me.  Don’t forget to enter the giveaway for the “love” set she made for you too!!
  • A mid-week polish change; I’d forgotten how much I love this color!
  • Catching a sale on Revlon products at the grocery store.  I bought a few nail polishes of course :-). (Check your local HEB to see if the sale is in your store)

  • The arrival of a few fabric swatches in the mail.
  • The arrival of a pretty floral print of my vintage birthday treat!!

DO TELL! What are some things that made you smile this week?!?


P.S. Today is the last day to enter my birthday giveaway.  A winner will be announced tomorrow!

    Your nail colors are so pretty. At home, I just spend coloring my nails and I love sorting different colors for my nails.
