Meet Becka

Hey friends!! I know Ive been MIA....mainly because Ive been so busy but today is an important day and I would not wanna miss out on introducing a very special lady. Im participating in Kelly's Show us your life!

This Fridays Show us your life is......SHOW US YOUR SINGLES!! So Im here to introduce one of my besties Becka aka Bex (as I like to call her). I may be biased but seriously this girl is a great catch however Im pretty sure God is molding her bc there is ONE special guy out there for she patiently (or not so patiently) awaits his arrival. She is the one girlfriend we ALWAYS call for a good laugh. It doesnt matter where you are or what you are doing you are bound to be laughing if shes anywhere near.

Becka is................
  • Habitually single
  • Never a bride, never been a bridesmaid either for that matter
I kid...I kid.....
  • Honest and loyal
  • funny....NO....HILARIOUS is more like it
  • comes from a GREAT family
  • photographer
  • loves to travel/road warrior
  • BEAUTIFUL inside/out
Becka lives in the Jackson MS area however she spends a huge majority of her time in the Memphis Tn area as well.....she comes to visit us up in Tn often and hopes to move back someday. She works full time as an Inventory Anaylst  but her passion is photography...she is the photographer/owner of BlueGenes photograhy!!! Find her fan page on Facebook if you would like. Her website is in the process of being built.

If you like what you see or you are interested just leave a comment with info on how to get in touch and Ill pass it along.
FYI.....this was not her idea.....ALL MINE!!! :))

Where have I been?

For almost the last year I have heard people mention the word Scentsy! I have several friends who have had Scentsy parties (which I skipped) and I have seen them in several of my friends homes. Im not sure where this wild hair came from but I decided several weeks ago to give this little burner a try. Keep in mind I LOVE candles! I burn them constantly. Well friends I made my first Scentsy purchase and that is when I fell in love.

I purchased a mid size burner in a yellow color (looks great in the Kitchen) and several scents. Right now my favorite scent is a vanilla one (sorry I cannot remember which one...there are several) I love how I can turn the burner on and since the vanilla is light enough I can still burn my favorite candles too. I am excited to try the Christmas scent I purchased.

This past weekend I was at a Christmas show with local vendors and stumbled across another Scentsy vendor so of course I had to add to my Scentsy stash. I bought this little guy for the bathroom.
I love it! So, if yall are skeptical like me and not sure about this, I WILL NOT be disappointed! I have already picked out a big burner that I want and Im ordering several for Christmas presents. Im funny about scents!! I do not like anything too sweet or floral like.....I DO NOT want a scent to give me a headache. However, like I said I have been extremely pleased and happy to say Scentsy won a new customer!

OOOHHHH....and if you have any FAVORITE SCENTS please share!!!! There are so many I get overwhelmed. Id love to know your favorites.

Happy Wednesday!

Baby its Cold Outside

Happy Monday and yes from the title Ive been singing Christmas songs. haha!! Im not sure where our Fall weather disappeared to but its feeling more like winter here. Brr....its cold. This weekend was pretty much a lazy relaxed GIRLS weekend. Saturday I ran all around shopping with several of my girlfriends and then we enjoyed lunch at one of our favorite Mexican restaurants!
Miss Haven had to go home and try on some of her new clothes
Think she likes them? hahah....really she did...she was just hungry. She looks cute in her boots....too grown up though for 11 weeks old. hehe...Im afraid she will grow up too fast. Yes that would be me in the background with the terrified look on my face. Who knows what I was doing or saying. 

Yesterday I pulled out all my Christmas stuff! I love this time of year and could not wait any longer. I figure if I start now (it will take me a week or two) then once Thanksgiving is over Ill be able and ready to enjoy all my Christmas decor! So last night I fluffed EVERY branch on the tree (my hands are living proof...ouch) and dressed it! Im not finished but its definitely a start!

Im happy to say IM BACK!!! I guess I have alot to catch everyone up on (I promise nothing very exciting though)

This is my ALL TIME favorite part of the year. Did everyone have a great Halloween?!?! Its horrible...its only the beginning of November and Im soooo stinkin ready to decorate for Christmas. haha. I wont lie to you...I believe Christmas may be going up a little early this year. I usually wait until after Thanksgiving but I dont see that happening this year. :)

Okay Im working on updating this blog and I promise not to wait so long in between posts. Im going to leave yall with an introduction to a new "special" someone in my life. My bestest friend had a baby girl a few months ago (first girl born out of my friends....and my sister has 3 boys so shes my first neice) This is Haven or also knows as Miss Priss or doll (she reminds me of a baby doll). I LOVE this little one.

Molly Be Designs

One of my dear friends has started her own business and I could not be more proud of her. Stephanie has always been one crafty and creative little bee. Not only is her stuff adorable she is definitely a PERFECTIONIST so you will never purchase anything from her that she would not pay or make for herself. I have watched her complete a project and then turn around and start all over because she was not pleased. Now, she DID NOT ask me to post this....actually she has no clue that I am but I wanted to share some of her things with yall because I have a few of her creations myself and have received many compliments on them so I definitely want to share them with yall incase anyone would like some for themselves. So here is a  picture overload of a FEW things she does.

Adorable apron (she makes these in half sizes as well)

Everyone needs a cute dish towel for the kitchen and they are only $8.00!!! These are definitely one of my favorites! Very cute in the bathroom too!!

She has a HUGE variety of onesies and shirts....Boys & Girls

One of her newest projects are these adorable "Fabric Flowers". I wore a black and white zebra one on a black dress Saturday night and I cannot even begin to tell yall how many compliments I received!!! These flowers can be purchased with a hat or headband or you can even purchase the flower alone. You can pin it on a shirt, dress or even a necklace!!

Dont want a flower? How about a bow?!?! Cute huh?

This is only a sample of what she can do. She makes diaper cakes, banners, clothes, pillows, bedskirts.....yall get my point!! The girl has talent!

If you are interested or need a cute gift you can find her on Facebook at Molly Be Designs
Go find her and you can see all her designs! Dont see what you want....shoot her an email. Im pretty sure she would love to "create" with you!!
