awards and the best headband EVER.

I have lots of catching up to do on the little blog today, as well as around the house!! My etsy shop is getting new items later today, which I will post about when I get the photos taken! Lots of fun Halloween cards and tags, along with some other cute little goodies!! Make sure to check back later today :)

As most of you know, I went shopping with my mom and sister the other night and it was such a fun treat! I needed some new things for school, and I needed new jeans badly. We found some amazing deals and I am so happy with everything I got, especially this super-cute and PERFECT feathered headband from Forever 21!!!!

And the best part???? It was only $4.80!!! WOW! I wore it all day yesterday and got lots of compliments and lots of stares... "Why is that girl wearing feathers on her head?????" :) Well, I love it and I want to make some more along the same lines.

My little Andrew spent all day yesterday with his dad, and they had a sleepover together last night, which allowed me to while away the weekend!! I went to the San Diego Scrapbooking Expo downtown yesterday morning and picked up some super fun goodies to be incorporated into etsy cards and tags! Then I went downtown with my sister and some friends. I hardly ever go out down there anymore, so when I get a chance, it is always fun! We went to the Padres game and then to a funny little bar downtown to catch up with some old friends which was great!!

Moving on.... I received two awards this week and I am so excited to share them with you!



The lovely Denise from Polka Dot Moon awarded me with the "I love your blog!" award which I was so excited about because I LOVE her blog too!! She is such a sweet blog-friend to me and I am so glad I have had the opportunity to get to know her recently... and she has an adorable etsy shop which I LOVE. :) Thanks Denise!!!



And secondly, my fab mom gave my the "Kreativ Blogger" award!!! Thanks, mom- coming from a super-creative girl like you, I feel oh-so-honored!!!! For this award, I have to list six of my favorite things and then nominate some more creative bloggers as well.

Six of my fave things.......
1. Gossip Girl! 2. Feathers! 3. Big fluffy flowers! 4. Sunglasses! 5. Andrew's drawings and coloring:) 6. A super pair of ripped up jeans! (of which I found on my recent shopping trip lol!!!)

I am going to nominate the same few people for both of these awards since creativeness is oozing from all of my super-fun favorite blog friends!!!! Have fun, girls!! :)
