This week's lovelies.

Here are a few things to look forward to on this somewhat drab Monday.

That's right, the excavator man dug the basement for our future dream home. It may just look like an giant hole in the ground to you, but to me it's progress on our house and that is SO exciting!!

2. All things Christmas, including these cupcakes I made with little green sprinkles--yum! Bonus: There's fudge in the middle. Yessssss.

3. These loafers. Swoon.

4. Children's movies that Daniel and I actually want to watch with John. Like the Fantastic Mr. Fox, our new favorite.

5. Tomorrow is the 4th Annual Schnucks and MB Holiday Fine Wine Tasting. Phew, that was a lot of capitalization....ANYWAY! The reason why this event is so great this year is because this is the first year my company (MB) is opening the tasting TO THE PUBLIC, FOR FREE! That's right! You can all come and taste some super fancy wines and eat bacon wrapped scallops. Did I mention that this is all free? The event will be tomorrow, 12/6 at The Venue in Cape. Starts at 6:30 and ends at 8:30. I'll be at Table Two, so come say hi!!

6. Pomegranates = Delicious. Can't get enough of them.

7. Waxing Poetic Charms. My lovely friend Emily introduced me to these--LOVE THEM. I'm not always a necklace person, but these charms are adorable. Check out this little "J" and the cute Fox! The J is for John (of course!) and the little fox reminds me of our land. When we first moved out there I would see this little fox peeking out from behind the trees almost every day.

8. Army Men do float in the tub, just in case you were wondering.

9. I'm following a new blog, My Edit. She's a landscaper by day, and a fashionista by night. LOVE her guide on Thrifting Tips.

10. This week, I'm going to be filling my thoughts and prayers with lovingkindness. Don't you love how the Bible has created this perfect word?

" I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore I have drawn you with lovingkindness." Jeremiah 31:3

Have a great Monday everyone!


  1. Wow. So I just started following your blog because I found you on the IT list...and I just realized you are also from Missouri. I went to SEMO and live in St. Louis now...Ironic.

    I love My Edit, and have been following her for a while. Also, love those loafers and pomagranates. Congrats on the house!

  2. Hey! Thanks for the congrats and for following the blog. It really is a small world after all haha! I just checked out your blog and started following you. Glad to meet you! What do you do in STL? Do you sometimes miss little Cape G? ;)

  3. Yes, certainly a small world. Thanks for the follow as well..I'm very new to blogging so I have lots to learn still. I am the Director of Special events for a chocolate company here in STL. I do miss Cape from time to life mostly. :)

  4. Those loafers are seriously swoon worthy! And how exciting on the basement!! That's greta progress!

  5. Jess I feel like I have so much to learn too, even though it will be a year in January since I started blogging. I'll be looking forward to your posts!

    Ashley my hubs actually read my blog today so fingers crossed he took the hint on the loafers!! And thanks for the Congrats! It has rained for 2 days now so our basement is seriously like a small pond haha.
