I came across these darling bracelets over at The Doctor’s Closet blog the other day. Monika has put a high-end twist on the simple friendship bracelet that is too cute not to share with you all. I can remember being young and sitting around with friends making bracelets and trading them.Those were fun times and I’m pretty sure many of you have similar memories. With the trend of bracelet stacking right now, I thought what a colorful addition one (or two) of these bracelets would make on your wrist. If I could remember how to make these myself I would give it a try but with things being so busy around here I’ll probably end up buying one. You can find these jems for sale on etsy. I can’t wait to scoop mine up before they are all gone.

This summer hasn’t gotten off to a very bright or warm start here in the NW and I was beginning to find it hard to keep my spirits up. Each weekend has been passing by without many hours of sunshine and the lack of sun and time I’ve spent indoors has taken a toll on me. Also, my poor body has been working overtime to stay healthy and fight off a cold that is working very hard to stick around. Since this summer hasn’t been all that I’d hoped for, I thought it best that I take a few minutes to appreciate all the things in my life that are currently making me smile on a daily basis. 1. Baby Baron is growing like a little weed along with my belly 🙂 and I thank God everyday for this little miracle I am creating. 2. I appreciate every moment I get to spend with my husband and I know our life is about to change forever (in a good way of course). Some of the more simple nights in are becoming very important and memorable to me. 3. Doing small craft projects and using my creativity always brightens my mood. 4. Scoring good deals at Nordstrom immediately puts a smile on my face! 5. Doing anything to prepare for our little boy reminds me just how precious life really is. These are just a few things that make me smile; what puts a smile on your face?
