Friday Confessional

I confess:
I watched that show "I Survived" the other night, and it made me start crying for like 20 minutes straight. I mean really, I need to pull myself together.

I confess:
I think my dog may have more jackets than I do.

I confess:
I think I am slowly becoming obsessed with blog giveaways!! I might even do one myself again. I need more followers though before I will attempt that again. You wanna know why?! I did one giveaway, and only one person ended up entering, I am glad they won, but still.

I confess:
The electricity went out this morning, I look really busted, just saying. Who cares though, it's Friday!

I confess:
I want to open up a Mud Pie store one day. Not anytime soon though. Wouldn't want to take any business from my fav stores!

I confess:
Scott and I just bought matching chairs, LOL, we won't however buy matching shirts, EVER. On our honeymoon we saw some matching shirt couples I was so jealous, JUST KIDDING!!!!!

I confess:
I am so proud that I walked 14 miles with the gal pals last weekend. Leading to my next confession....I am restarting weight watchers again today. (for about the 5th time since New Years) My willpower has gone away....need to get it back.

The other week I ran across this online shop called Carolina Clover and I fell in love with a handful of their items. They are based out of Wake Forest, NC. Maybe they will consider opening a shop here in VA, hehe... Here are some of my new favorites...

Monogrammed Cell Phone Covers

Scarf that attaches to your purse to keep your iPhone/iPad screen clean

Plates you can personalize

Glass cutting platters you can personalize

What I'm loving Wednesday! :)

To start everything off, I am loving these DIY projects. My problem is that I have all the supplies that I need, but I haven't actually done anything with them yet. Probably should try to start on them sometime here soon. Below are some of my favs that I want to try...
I have already bought all the supplies for this product. Hope it turns out as nice as some of the ones I have seen!

This was also found while I was browsing over at Tater tots and Jello. She always spots the cutest ideas! This is a creation from over at Peppermint and Plum. What a cute idea to dress up a boring cork board!

Next is a super easy DIY project that will put you in organization heaven. I saw this over at A Thoughtful Place

More quotes to share...

I absolutely love quotes, so I spent the day browsing different ones that I liked, and thought I would share them. I also found a lot of them here at Flip Flops and Pearls! I could spend all day reading quotes...

Friday Confessional...

I have found myself reading everyone else's Friday Confessionals, so I thought why not join in!?!

I confess:
I smuggle mini tupperware containers into bars, filled with rum, so I can save money by making my own rum and cokes... (one of my close friends taught me this back when I still went out all the time) It saves a ton of money!
....I will also do the same thing with dressing when I am on weight watchers. My dressing is always such a better option than what is offered.

I confess:
Even though I sell Thirty One Gifts, I refuse to give up my coach purses. Isn't that awful! I sell purses, but won't give up my own. I love everything else Thirty One though!!!!

I confess:
I have one single hair that grows from my chin/neck, and since it is only one hair, I don't catch it until it's like an inch long, and usually it's not me that notices it, it's someone else! Uh yeah, soooo embarrassing.
(I checked it this morning)

I confess:
I will donate to charities. I decided that I will not donate to charities that walk up to me in parking lots. You know why?? I did last year, it was for a magazine subscription, and instead of getting it sent to our house, I said, you can send it to a solider overseas. So I picked "Maxim" to send over, because I figured a solider would enjoy that magazine. Well if I would have KNOWN they would start sending US the Maxims 6 months into it, I would have not done it!! We don't need "Maxim" coming to the house every month like it is now.

I confess:
I haven't got a pedicure since my wedding last July. Why? It's because I have a secret fear that they are talking about my nasty looking feet, and since I know only English, obviously, LOL, and some Spanish, I'm not quite sure what's being said, and it bugs me.

What I'm Loving Wednesday!

Okay, so during the last few days I have run across a few products that I absolutely love and wanted to share!

The first product I want to share comes from an etsy shop called Mod Memento. These items are simple, elegant, and make a great gift for anyone really. I thought the products were super cute. I ran across them during one of my daily blog browsing sessions.

Another great etsy item I ran across were these pillows. Let me tell you, these pillows are super affordable, and they are really cute too! Most of the pillows are only 12.99 and that is with free shipping! Had to share them with you all as well. Click here to go right to DIY Pillows!

A thank you to Jane from Finding Fabulous and Kelsey from her Seattle Smiths blog. Their blogs let me know about these awesome products, that I just HAD to share!

P.S. It's my first week participating in...

Roxy Fashion Show! during my lunch breaks, I find myself going to Ross and TJ Maxx a lot! :) Yesterday I found the cutest jacket for Roxy, and you know I had to get it! :) She already has a pink snuggie and a pink sweater,  but no jacket yet so she had to get the jacket. We had a fashion show last night...

What do you think???

Not too long ago, Scott and I decided I needed a new car, so I retired my 2002 Mazda Protege, and we upgraded to a 2009 Volkswagen Passat. I have now decided, I want to personalize my plates, reason being.....I never have before, and I just wanted to. I am stuck though when it comes to thinking up one.....I thought I would share the things I have been thinking, and see if maybe someone else can come up with a good idea...

I was thinking something that I couldn't replicate my blog title 'Simply Sara" Obviously this is too long, so I would need to simplify it, but at the same time, having it still be legible.....

Hmmmm, What else? I love....

Hot Pink
Polka Dots
Using "XOXO"
The word "fabulous"
The word "simply" as you can tell from my blog title...
Maybe something with the word "smile" in it
I like to "buy" things, I have been "buying way too much"
I also love to look for quotes, I love finding cute ones! :)
I went to Longwood University in VA, and am from VA Also....
also...My initials are SHG, and my name is Sara.

I have come up with SMPY SRA, lol....that's about it, I can have up to 7 characters. Haven't been trying too hard. Anyone have some good suggestions for me??
