It was so surprising to see what she did! Well, from there I added our name below on the blog, and here we are! The most lovely looking site ever! LOL Jk, but really, im not. If you are interested in getting some work done from Daisy, please visit her site I linked above, or email her at bouxwho@gmail.com.

FRIDAY FAVORITES >> #10 Home




Hey friends, so when we recently arrived from vacation, we were on a mission to do a little home revamping. I love a really earthy look, and Alex, well he doesn't really care either way. Just as long as the Xbox is nearby. That's okay with me, however I'm a female, and sometimes I feel like decor is in my blood, just little flowing pictures, and rugs, even little knick-knacks, just flowing along. Okay, well maybe I'm over exaggerating, but I enjoy home decor SO much. So we bought a lovely white-ish rug from Ikea, and a beautiful southwestern style rug on sale at Target. Now, im looking for a little side table, and some lovely little accents. The search is on. Here are some of the lovely ideas for you my lovelies.

 



Tell me that you love this little side table!??

OCTOBER SPONSORS>> #1

**WE INTERRUPT THIS THRIFTY THURSDAY FOR**


Hey friends, Sorry but this is more important! Im so happy to be into the fall season and also sad to be seeing October go so quickly! We haven't even carved pumpkins! What in the world is wrong with us!?!?! Even so, I have some great girls for you to meet today! Meet our first fall sponsors....

-First meet the lovely new fave daily read of mine, Sandra from Lara's Vintage-


Hello my lovely Guppy & Whaleshark readers! My name is Sandra! A Mom of two girls living the Navy life in New Jersey. I'm a picture taker, thrift store addict and vintage lover! Let's be friends!

-Next up is the lovely Angie from My So Called Chaos, she also runs a lovely shop called Chaotic Creations! Check it out, I seriously love her little hats and bookmarks!-


-BLOG >> SHOP-

Chaotic Creations by My So-Called Chaos was created as an outlet for all of the crafty and artistic things I make.  I love creating, but have no where to keep all of the lovelies, and I run out of people to gift them too-so now I am selling them to the public!  I do anything from art, to jewelry, to crocheted hats and scarves!

I hope that you guys enjoyed these two lovely ladies and I hope you visit each of their sites! There is so much to learn! Well, I hate to say this but I did this while cooking dinner, thats how swamped I have been since we have been back from vacation. I need a break. STAT.

Till next time friends,




I know, I suck.


Hey guys, well I know I posted on Friday, but as far as awesome personal pictures, I suck. 

Vacation was last week, and not only have I not replied to comments, I haven't stayed up on my daily blog reads or commented on them, I even haven't done my sponsor posts for October. Yeah, I suck. So, I can whine it up, or keep on...

Vacation rocked, and those of you who are avid instagram followers would have seen  pics. If you don't follow me, you probably should, it would give you more incite into my life daily than I keep up with on the blog. However, Im still here, and still adore you my little lovely followers. So, this is my warning, don't worry, I will have some great sponsor posts, and I promised a giveaway, and so there will be one. NEXT WEEK! To start off the lovely November season, I am having a rockin' giveaway. I cant tell you what it is, because that would ruin the surprise. So, have a good Monday  and talk to you tomorrow.
