12 Happies du Jour


Yesterday was a great day ... very productive and I felt a little more like me, which is a good thing after last week. I got a ton done, ran a bunch of errands, and added some bows to all the things standing still in the house.  I hit Hobby Lobby for ribbon and came out with a huge bag of plaid, checks, solids, and even more plaids.  I should be set for this month and next, but we shall see.  When I got home I immediately added this ribbon to my Marshall's wreath and I loved it.  It feels very much like October and I am loving it.
I have so much to share today, and I have to start with this tip.  If you have not watched this weekly video you must.  This girl is the sweetest and the funniest and she will try almost anything!  Make sure you like her and watch her Tuesday videos.  You will be so happy you did. 😂


I am completely in love with this whole outfit.  The sweater, the jeans, the loafers, those sunnies, I will take it all! Maybe they should do that ... bundle outfits for purchase, I think it would be a fabulous new thing. Oh and that cashmere sweater comes in 23 colors.  #yesplease

Speaking of sweaters ... it is officially sweater weather and I love it.  I always forget during the summer how much I love a sweater and how easy it is to pair with jeans and loafers.  I have been shopping for few new ones and I think you will love the ones I have found just as much as I do.



I am dying over these shoes!!! (And they are on sale!)

Anyone else absolutely giddy over this news?  I can't wait to watch this story unfold, that sweet baby will be gorgeous.


I am a firm believer that paint can make a huge difference and this kitchen is a perfect example.

I think this is the prettiest flatware ... the bird and the details are absolutely stunning!

The weather has been cold and a bit wet outside and these pajama pants have me wanting to snuggle up at home and nest.

Oh, and can I pair them with these? I may never leave my house with this outfit!


My favorite swizzle sticks are ON SALE!!  Now through the end of the month you can buy one set of swizzle sticks and get the identical order free.  There are two sizes, short and tall, and you can mix your sizes.  So for the ones above those are the navy and I can order them and get the same color and monogram in one of each size.  This is perfect for the upcoming holiday season ... you can buy some for you and buy some as a gift as well!  These are so fun for hostess gifts, for your family, and of course, for you! Cheers!!

Oh, and while you are there ... check out the other BOGO items!  I may need to get going on my Christmas shopping today!

One of the things I bought a few months ago was my first essential oil diffuser and a box of essential oils.  My sister in law and her family came for the weekend and she recommended we try it to add to our "trying to de-stress when life is so very stressful" routine.  I bought it and then wasn't sure how to use it and wasn't sure how much I would like it and you get my drift.  About a week after it arrived I unpacked it, diffused an oil and dove right in.  I ended up taking a nap that afternoon and woke up very relaxed after sleeping in our room with peppermint oil in the machine.  I decided to play around more and gift it a whirl.  Both Lawyer and I really seem to enjoy it and it has become a nightly routine to diffuse oils and decide what to use, etc.  Anything that we can do together I am all for!  Currently as I type we are using a combination of sweet orange + peppermint + eucalyptus.   I bought this diffuser and this box of oils and highly recommend both if you are new to oils.  If you have any great combos let me know, I would love to try them!

I hope your day is wonderful!  💓
