I was so excited when Molly tagged me in this Sunshine Award. When I started blogging, I loved these things!!! I was glad she brought it back old school and that she tagged me in it. Makes me feel loved. Molly is my first bloggy friend turning real life friend and not a day goes by where I don’t talk to her and I am so happy that the interest exists so I get to call this amazing person one of my best friends. (Mushy enough? Okay. Sorry. Moving on…)
Have you ever shopped with Crystal Faye? She has some of the cutest stuff and of course, since it’s monogrammed, it just doesn’t get any better than that. I am in love with the Clover Collection Lucite Tray. I’ve been eyeing one of these acrylic trays for MONTHS, thinking it was just what I needed for my ottoman in the living room. Crystal was kind enough to send me one for my birthday.. it even showed up like a birthday present! I immediately took it out of the box and laid it on the ottoman.
Only to come in the next morning to this:
No. That’s just NOT gonna fly. Plus… my ottoman is huge, so it really wasn’t doing the tray justice. (Just keeping it real, folks. This is what my ottoman ALWAYS looks like in some form or fashion.)
So, I made the wise decision to move it in to my closet with my jewelry.
I love how much deeper the sides are on this tray than what I had here originally. It helps keep my bracelets stacked nicely. (Yes. That’s a pearl tiara. Doesn’t everyone have one? No? Just me?)
This tray is so versatile.. it could really just go anywhere.
I think this tray is a much better option here on the ottoman. Although, I still think it needs some work.. I’m just not sure what! I’m not good with the details of decorating.
To help celebrate my birthday, Crystal Faye is going to give away one of these fabulous trays to one of you lucky ladies!!

Alright, y’all. I cannot contain my level of excitement to be heading to Dallas this week. A- I have never been to Dallas and B- I am heading to one of my favorite things in the blogging world… BlissDom.
Heather is joining our room of crazy this year, so hopefully she will still be on speaking terms when it’s all said and done.
I am excited to be apart of the amazing Community Leader program again this year. I am a photography CL, so come and say HI!!!
I’ve gotten my session assignments, and y’all… I am on cloud 9. Anna Epp and Alli Worthington’s sessions are both assigned to me.
I honestly cannot explain what an amazing experience BlissDom is. It took some extra finagling this year to make it work since it’s been moved to Dallas, but I cannot wait to share my experience.
Of course, as a mom, you can’t plan a trip without something going wrong… a storm blew threw yesterday and knocked a whole bunch of trees in the neighborhood and we are currently without power. We stayed at the in-laws last night and appears that we are one of the only houses in the neighborhood who didn’t lose a single tree, so I will count myself lucky!
Nothing puts your To Do List into perspective quite like a power outage.
If you are going to BlissDom, just remember that everyone is generally a normal person, so do not be afraid to go up and speak to an idol. Meet new people. Ask questions! Have fun!
Want to know my #1 thing that I am bringing this year that I haven’t brought in years past? A ROBE. Trust me.. my roommates will thank me for that later.
Are you going to BlissDom? If so, you are totally going to say Hi, right?!
