Monogram Madness!

 Hello and happy Sunday to all!  I recently took a few of my new Fall goodies along with a few monogram ideas to a local monogram shop.  All I can say is that I am SO pleased!! I am even more prepared for Fall.

I had my Longchamp Monogrammed.  This was a little more tricky to monogram than I had imagined it would be.  Due to the pocket on the inside, the monogram was not able to go directly in the middle unless I was willing to loose the use of that whole entire pocket.  


I decided to just have my monogram placed underneath the pocket.  I am very pleased with the turnout!


This one is my favorite!! I decided to have the back pocket of my jeans monogrammed!  I am thrilled over them.  It was hard to find jeans with a pocket without any stitching on the back, but I found the perfect pair from Old Navy.  I am so so pleased. I received countless compliments the very first day I sported them.


Jaycee's turtlenecks for the Winter are now stitched with her name on them.  


I thought the black would look nice with a tan colored thread since her fur colors are Yorkie colors.


The day after I picked up my monogram goodies, I decided to have a monogram day.  Monogrammed Longchamp, Monogrammed jeans, and my Monogrammed Key necklace…That's what I call monogram madness!

What items have you creatively had monogrammed?  I'd love to know :)

Don't forget to enter my Marinette Jewelry Monogram Giveaway for a chance to win either a monogrammed necklace or bracelet :)

Recent Purchase - Longchamp Le Pliage

 I have been dying to purchase a medium Longchamp Le Pliage with a long handles!  I own a Longchamp Le Pliage in a size small with short handles.  I really do love it, but the handles are just too short to even hold the bag on my arm.  Good news…Bloomingdales is currently hosting their Friends & Family sale!  With the coupon code, FRIENDS12, I was able to purchase both the black Le Pliage and this Metallic one for 20% off the original price.  With this great sale, I knew it was the perfect time to give in to my Longchamp longing :)





I am just so excited to receive my Longchamps!  I only hear positive things about them.  I love the black since it contains the black/brown contrast.  I'm extra excited about the metallic since I haven't seen it around everywhere.  They are such classy statements!  Ahh the excitement of it all :)

Do you love Longchamps?  Do you have a Longchamp longing?

Stay Tuned and shop the sale!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JAYCEE!!

Today, I can't believe it, my Jaycee turns one!!  A year ago today, she wasn't mine yet, but she was born and waiting to be adopted and make me the happiest girl alive!  I can not even begin to express how much I love this little pup.  Even though I've only had her for ten months, I feel like it has been years.  She is always there for me and never fails to make me smile.  The sparkle in her beautiful, big eyes and her precious under bite (smile) are just some of the many things I love about my cutie pie.

Looking precious on her First Birthday!


The Birthday Princess <3

 Jaycee at Four Weeks Old!

Jaycee from six weeks to one year - can you tell that I love taking pictures of her? :)


My how she has grown!  She will always be that sweet, precious Jaycee that greets me every time I come home, snuggles with me every night, kisses me when I'm sad, and never fails to brighten my day!  Happy Birthday, my sweet Jaycee! I love you more than you'll ever know.

I Did It!!

This past weekend was great fun and very eventful at the same time! The fun and exciting part is that I now have a little diamond sister!!!  I would like to introduce Harita!!  She is so sweet and adorable and is the perfect little :) I love her to pieces. 

Isn't she sweet!


My diamond family <>

Ok, now for the eventful part…I went camping for the first time in my life! Yes, it was great fun and a special time of bonding with sisters, but I am in no way, shape, or form a camper.

We actually put up our tent!

All I can say about camping is that it was my first and last camping trip. I prefer a cabin :)

 The very best part of the camping experience was relaxing in the Eno hammock with Jaclyn! This was our treat for taking down two tents all by ourselves :)

Like Big/ Like Little <>

 I have the best big in the whole entire world.  I know I have posted about Jaclyn before, but I hope I can be as good of a big as she has been to me.  It will be hard to equal up to Jaclyn, but I certainly look forward to being the very best big I can possibly be.  Jaclyn and Harita, I love you both!

What We Wore - Rainy Day Style

Yesterday was a nasty day as the humidity and rain were consistent all day long!  When days like this occur, how should one make them better?  By wearing cute rain gear, of course!  Jaycee and I did this as I wore my Hunter Boots and she wore her new pink rain coat.  

Baby in her new rain coat, keeping her fur dry! 

I so enjoyed wearing my Hunter Originals in Cafe Latte

"Raindrops that stay on my nose and eyelashes…"

I wore a top that compliments my rain boots nicely, along with my Moon & Lola monogram necklace

Whenever it rains, you just have to find a way to make the best of it!  Solution = wear cute rain gear :)

P.S. Today is the last day to enter to win my Milo Paper Notebook Giveaway!  I will announce the lucky winner tomorrow :)
