The boys had their school "Fun Night" a couple of Friday's ago. This was the only picture I got of them because they were constantly on the go! HA!

Jovie getting her face painted!

The boys have taken an interest in helping with the planning of their birthday party. We're looking for invitations here!

The woman who marries him one day better be good at back scratching!

I love this picture Robb snatched of me helping my dad download some podcasts for his upcoming trip to Sweden!

Big girl at her 3 year check up!

It's no wonder the Zephyr Scarf from Noonday Collection is currently on backorder; not only is it one of this season's top trends worn tied around your neck, it also makes a great headband-a perfect disguise for when I'm overdue for a root touch up! 
Just because it's on backorder doesn't mean you can't get one of your own! It's still available to purchase and your order will put you in queue to ship out when more become available in May! 
Made with love in India! 

Jovie matched Piglet at the library!

Someone in this house has a contact lens problem! I did not stage this! Said person also recently got glasses, and looks quite studly in them :)

Spring cleaning bug has hit! This room is always a total disaster, so it was a picture worthy moment to have it clean!

Pedicures with my friend Emily before our Spring Break trips!

Mr. Gray is looking so old lately!

Just wrapped up an 8-week long workout program on Fitness Blender! (FB30)
I started an accountability/support group on Facebook with a few friends who are doing the program as well, and posted my ending progress there. Such a great feeling to accomplish a goal!

2 current faves~ Starbuck Coconut milk Mocha Macchiato, yum!
And the Nehma Bib Necklace, handmade in Uganda from recycled paper! 

Just another reason why I love this company! Your purchases change lives in multiple ways!

A warm, sunny Sunday in February! 

The same week I signed on to be a Noonday Ambassador I had the incredible opportunity to meet Jessica Honegger, the founder of Noonday Collection, and have lunch with her a few other local ambassadors! I sat right next to her at lunch, and loved getting to hear more about her heart for this company. And she's so cute and stylish, I loved to see her rocking her Noonday pieces in person! 
She's wearing the Horn Prism Necklace, The Aventura Earrings, and the STUNNING Wildflower Clutch. 
My kit hadn't even come in yet so I went with my old faithful Feathered Fringe Earrings that I love!

It felt like Christmas morning the day my kit arrived from Noonday! 


I love when last minute details all fall into place in a way that only God could orchestrate! Had such a great time at the "Weekend to Remember" conference this weekend! 
Investing in our marriage and making it priority isn't something we've been great at; so grateful for the tools and encouragement to do better!

Lunch at the Windchester was amazing!

so many beautiful details at the Amway

I even got my first online Noonday order while we were gone!

I was lisenting to a pod cast about a woman who was considering giving up Coke Icees for Lent, and then I just had to get one! Ha!

celebrating Brenham's birthday with cake!

The boys had a scheduled 2 hr-delay so they were finally able to come along and watch Jovie at ballet!

Brayden got 1st place in his first Cadet's Pinewood Derby Race!

If I had to guess, I'm probably the only Mystery Reader to have ever choked back tears while reading to a group of Kindergarteners! Such a special book to us! 
And I know your eyes caught those super fun bangles I'm wearing; the Marketplace Bangles, set of 5 

Sister workout!

The kids had a day off school last week so we had a chance to check out the new play land at Central. They had a blast, we can't wait to go back!

All set to go for my first Trunk Show!
It was fun trying to decide what jewelry to model for the show, I went with the popular Sea Change Necklace, Crystalline Earrings, and Sofiya Wrap Bracelet

The snacks I served at the show, I think Jovie ate most of those Starbursts before anyone even came!

It was a double launch from 1-3 and 7-8 

Of course I had to swap out my accessories mid-way. I love how jewelry can completely transform an otherwise boring outfit!
I'm switched to the Skyward Necklace, and Afloat Earrings.

A new, exciting journey!

Thursday, March 9, 2017

I'm so excited to share with you about a new journey I'm embarking on as a Noonday Collection Ambassador!

*Noonday Collection is a socially responsible business that uses fashion to create meaningful opportunities around the world! They partner with talented Artisans in vulnerable communities to provide them with dignified jobs.*

By becoming an Ambassador I'll be selling their handmade jewelry and accessories to style friends and change the world. I think it's going to be a great fit!

Together we’re building a flourishing world where children are cherished, women are empowered, people have jobs and we are connected.

Here's a sneak peak at some of my favorite Noonday Collection goodies, but you can check out the whole collection by clicking the link here!

This was such a fun combo to wear on a bright Springy day! I got lots of compliments on my scarf, the colors compliment so many things in my closet and love those trendy tassels at the bottom  Those earrings were made in Vietnam and are an all time favorite of mine! And last but not least... I love me a good arm party!

I'm all about these earrings, ethically made from cow horn, making each set unique! They add a statement to any outfit.
And this necklace comes as a 3-strand, pre-layered necklace, but each strand can be removed making it a single or a double as well! Genius! And these dainty bracelets are the perfect addition.

Feeling the Uganda love with these paper bead pieces!

I was out shopping recently and noticed how pretty much everything out in stores right now would match this necklace! Such hot colors this season!
These Mod Marble Studs have been such a hot seller, they are currently unavailable. But if I were you, I'd click the link below and get tour name on the list to be notified when they are back in stock! They are a staple! And you'll have to look close but I'm also wearing a wrap bracelet that finishes off the outfit!
Nehma Bib Necklace, Mod Marble Earrings  Sofiya Wrap Bracelet

Pictures don't do these earrings justice, they are so lightweight and shiny! You could dress them up or down, and are very affordable too.  The leather extender on this necklace is removable, making it such a versatile piece!

Your purchases make a difference. That's shopping you can feel good about!

I'm excited to see where this journey takes me, and be a part of impacting others in a meaningful way.  And perhaps I'll get better at taking selfies while I'm at it! :)

Your prayers and support are so appreciated!

"and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
    and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,
then your light will rise in the darkness,
    and your night will become like the NOONDAY"
~Isaiah 58:10
