Sweet Progress Fall Box Swap

The other half of  Sweet Progress Box Swap is Ashley from Happy Pretty SWEET. Ashley is such a dear, I adore her! I’m happy to partner with her to spread blogger mailbox love every season. 🙂 And this season… this wonderful season we’re celebrating…


I’m in love, I’m in love, I’m in LOVE WITH FALL AND I don’t care who knows it!!

But you know who knows it, Erika. Erika of Cat Eyes and Skinny Jeans, who has never ever met me in real life, she gets it. She knows my love for fall is deep and you know what she did, she showered me with fall mail. LIKE INSANELY AWESOME FALL MAIL!! But before I start gushing over how awesome my fall box is, let me tell you a little bit about Erika and her super cool blog. When I visit Erika’s blog I’m instantly inspired by her fashion and her impeccable nail polish skills!! I want to one day achieve fashion and good nails like Erika. Seriously, you have to check out her beautiful nails. Besides being super stylish, she’s super sweet, loves cats, and HAPPY MAIL!

My Sweet Progress Fall Box Reveal

So what did Erika send me….

A BOX FULL OF GOODIES!!!

Sweet Progress Fall Box Swap Reveal with Erika of Cat Eyes and Skinny Jeans

Is the suspense killing you? Because my girls couldn’t take it, I was snapping pictures of the process and they were right next to me waiting impatiently to see what was in this superbly packaged box. Also, Erika left me a sweet note on each package explaining why she sent the corresponding item. So sweet.

Are ready? Here it is!!

Sweet Progress Fall Box Swap Reveal with Erika of Cat Eyes and Skinny Jeans

Isn’t this box AWESOME!?!

Okay, okay, here’s what was inside my fall box swap box:

♡  One Bad Apple by Sheila Connolly

♡  Forever 21 Rusty Red Infinity Scarf

♡  Forever 21 Layered Leaf Necklace Set

♡  Donut Key Chain

♡  Ciate Dangerous Affair Nail Polish

♡  And Herb the Turkey and Pumpkin Spice Lindt CHOCOLATES

the-cutest-little-fall-boxes

How adorable are these boxes?!?

One Bad Apple seems like a deliciously suspenseful autumn thriller that pairs well with my pumpkin spice chocolates and a good cup of coffee. I can’t wait to dive into this read. The scarf will be worn over and over I’m sure. Because I love fall so much Erika wanted me to wear my love of fall and fall leaves all year round. I’m thinking of splitting up the leaves and giving one to each of my fall-loving baby girls. 🙂 THE DONUT KEY CHAIN… has someone visited my Instagram. 🙂  I hope I can make my nails look half as good as Erika with my luxurious new Ciate nail polish. Herb, my new turkey, is already hanging up waiting for all the turkey love that is to come this Thanksgiving season. Time to put away all the spiders and all things Halloween. Because it’s NOVEMBER!!!

These are a Few of My Favorite Links

I’m taking a little break this week. My babies are on holiday (I just wanted to sound fancy)… Spring Break, so I thought I’d try to step away from the computer a little more this week. I will be a little slower than usually replying and visiting back, but I will respond and visit. I figured this would be a great time to share a few of my favorite links I visited this week. Maybe I’ll make this a regular post, share a few of my favorite links each week, we shall see. 🙂

These are few of my favorite links this week.

A Few of My Favorite Links this week

I honestly visited so many awesome links this week and last week, I wish I could share them all. Perhaps, that’s why I should make this a weekly thing or bi-weekly thing. Anyway enough of me thinking out loud. I hope you’re having a wonderful week!!

XOXO

Blogger Gift Guide

10 Gifts for BloggersThis year I decided to try my hand at gift-guiding (it’s a thing). I don’t know if you know this but I use to help create the pages for Tots To Teens Magazine’s gift guides, I loved it! We started our Holiday Magazine waaaaayyy in advance, there were times in October I was pulling out decorations to use as props for the December issue. I enjoyed working with the various companies and the excitement of opening packages to see what may make our list. Naturally, when deciding to create a few gift guides for my blog I got all nostalgic and missed my magazine days. I’ve created three fun themed gift guides, guides I think you can relate to: Gifts for Bloggers, Gifts for Creatives, and Gifts for Coffee Lovers. I basically put together a grownup wish list. (eh hem…)

Blog Award, Blog Love

I Love the Blogging Sisterhood!

Sisterhood-Award-294x300

Heather, from Life of a Traveling Navy Wife  nominated 8 bloggers for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award last week and I was one of them. 🙂 It means SO much to me that Heather thought of me, I cheerfully accept her nomination! I am incredibly grateful to be a part of such a beautiful sisterhood that encourages, inspires, and spreads kindness- blogger perk.

Life of a Traveling Navy Wife

Have you visited Heather’s blog? She blogs about her life as a “Traveling” Navy wife, she shares about her travels, life, and reviews.  She is pretty bad ass too!

As part of my nomination, Heather has given me 10 questions to answer and then she will jump me in. 🙂

My questions:
1. You’re trapped on an island and can only listen to ONE album (assume you have something to play music with). Which is it?

 

That is super tough!!! Just one? Hmm… I will go with the first album that came to mind: The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. I loved that album when it came out; I grew to love it more once I was a grown up with grown up problems.
2. Why do you KEEP blogging?

The smart ass in my wants to say, “Because I want to,” however the real answer is a bit more deep.  I blog because blogging has saved me from myself.  Writing has always been a form of expression for me, blogging has become extremely therapeutic for me. I am no longer stuck with thoughts suspended without a place to neatly rest them.  And, although that is nice, the community, the “sisterhood” is a bonus!  A bonus I did not expect, but thankfully receive. :: blows kisses your way::

3. When you have been most satisfied with your life?

Party of Five King Street

I’m satisfied when I hold my babies or read them a story.

I’m satisfied in laughter and good home cooked meals.

I’m satisfied when the five or us are all together laughing.

Starbucks|The family that Starbucks together

I’m satisfied when coffee is pumping through my veins.

I’m satisfied when I’m in my husband’s arms.

I’m satisfied when I write something good or do something good for this world.

As for life, I will always want to do a little more.  I need to do more good for this world, I’m not done, therefore I am not satisfied.  🙂
4. Do you have a spirit animal? What is it?

So, I took a quiz for this question 🙂 I had never thought about my “spirit animal” turns out I was/am a BEAR!

image

Per PlayBuzz-

The Bear: You are the compass of love. People come to you with relationship issues, heartbreak issues, and you’re perfectly fine with that. It’s hard when you’re away from the people that love you. You never do anything alone, a trip for one, has no interest to you unless it’s a trip to find love that you don’t have.

To you, the best thing in the world is your husband or wife. To everyone else, they love you for your mercy and forgiveness, because you offer both easily. However, when someone makes you angry enough where it’s hard to forgive them, just remember that they are human. You would want their forgiveness as well. 

5. What question do you hate to answer?

Do you have a spirit animal? HAHA! I’m kidding!

How about: “Are they all yours?”  WTF!!! I only have three children, I’m not the freakin’ Octomom.

StarWarsKids

6. Tell us something about you that’s “off-the-wall”.

Well, this may not be off-the-wall for you, but it is certainly off-the-wall to me, I haven’t lived in Texas in 10 YEARS! I was born and raised in Texas.

MeMay242013-5

7. What is the top item on your bucket-list and have you accomplished it?

I am not sure what my “top” item is on the bucket-list, but I can tell you I have plenty I want to accomplish.  I need more travel in my life, more writing, a farm, and I also need to meet a few people.
8. What is your happy place?

Here comes the cheese…. #SorryNotSorry

Laying my head on my husband’s chest every night after we’ve tucked the babies in for the night. We’ve tackled the day, we tagged teamed, and we rejoin each other {TWSS} just the two of us knowing we’re doing alright. 🙂

9. Which family members would you choose to appear on Family Feud with you?

Good question, my husband and I have discussed this.  I would choose: My husband, my brother-in-law, my sister, and my sister-in-law.
10. And last but not least, an ummm, unique one from the hubs: If you were given a giraffe and were required to keep it for one year, and you don’t have the option to say ‘no’, what would you do with it? (Ummm, I swear he hasn’t been drinking LOL).

Very interesting question! Hmmm… Can I give it away and check in on it all year?  If I am allowed to give my new giraffe Pepe away, I would send him Courtney’s way.  Every time I see anything giraffe I think of her or my mother-in-law.  No offense to my mother-in-law, I’m just not sure I would want her to care for the giraffe. Plus, how much fun would the boys have if their Mama owned a giraffe! That sounds like the beginning of a really good children’s book Mrs. Courtney’s Twins and Their Pet Giraffe Pepe.

 

And the nominees are……

 

Courtney, of course! This girlie embodies sisterhood! She has given me so much sisterly love in the short time we’ve known each other.  I love this woman!

Linkouture

Bev , is such a dear sweet friend. Supportive, caring, and inspiring are words that come to mind. Thankful to have her as part of the sisterhood.

The Chronicles of Chaos

Mia,  I have NOTHING but good things to say about this sweet woman!!!  I am SO glad the two of us have connected, she is the epitome of sisterhood.  Mia is cheering me on this year to chase my dreams.

Tamara, is such a kind soul, her words are inspiring and comments are some of the best. I am happy to call Tamara, friend. Tamara IS blogging sisterhood.

imgres

Chastity, SUPPORTER, SUPPORTER, ENCOURAGER. I am thankful for this lady! If there is someone who can make me smile with her kind words, it’s Chastity. 🙂

image

I cannot mention sisterhood, without mentioning my girls Tenns and Tiffany! These two ladies are my go-to-gals on all things blogging.  We have had plenty of text chats about blog life and I always walk away knowing I’m a lucky gal to have these two.  I love that we met each other for the first time at Bloggy Boot Camp this past October and people swore we had to have known each other IRL.  That’s how lucky I am.

blank-editable-header

Karen, I don’t remember how I ‘met’ her, but I’m sure glad I did.  Karen and I have stayed blogging friends through a few blogging changes on both ends. She is such a sweetheart!

image

Shelly = sisterhood.  This woman has been the longest standing member of my blogging sisterhood! Well,  if you count blogging as writing notes back in fourth-commenting– in class. 😀 I love this woman and despite anything that ever was or will ever be, she will always have my heart and loyalty. Libra much?

BONUS: YOU! I could keep going and going, because this sisterhood has been good to me, read #2 again. Please answer the questions if you would like and let me know if you did.  I would love to read your answers.  I love each and every one of you! Thank you for your support <3

A Blogger’s Tell-Tale Tale

Oh, the thump, thump, thumping that has been going off in my head, it’s been something terrible, I have been trying to shake it off,  yet it hadn’t seized.  I thought I could muffle it with T.V while I folded laundry, because if I were idle the thumping would surely take over me… that did not work.  (However, I have to say Wendy Williams did provide me with some laughs.)  The thumping was slightly muted while with my family watching Christmas movies sippin‘ cocoa. However, somewhere in the back of my head the thumping was still there.  I am quite sure those around me heard the thumping, as I had relayed a few of  my concerns, however, they did not say they heard it too, it was just me.

Wheel of Fortune|Mrs. AOK, A Work In Progress

I was teaching the kids, and I had a quick minute to check emails while they were working on their project, while I sat there the thumping became down right boisterous. I knew what it was, but I stored it away,  I got up and finished my day.  This didn’t go on for one day, no, it went on for more, Tuesday, Wednesday, TODAY I couldn’t take it anymore.

ReadingStoneSoup

I woke up with the thumping, I woke up to the thought of an empty screen, I fell asleep with a different idea for that empty screen, but here I am filling that screen, that screen I left empty for three whole days!  I saw the flickering light, I didn’t want it to blow out!

Just Keep Writing|Writing|AmWriting|Blog|Blogging|WriteOn|NaBloPoMo

My friend Tamara spoke of the lights going out on many blogs lately, I in NO WAY  want the lights to go out.  I know over the next few weeks, things may become slightly scarce around here.  I may hear a thumping, but I think it will be more of a mutter to me, I’m sure it will be muffled in holiday fun.  I certainly didn’t mean for a sparsity to begin, so here I am.  The thumping has seized, and the planning for the next few weeks will take place, perhaps that will help, and this will happen nevermore… {fingers crossed}

Make A Christmas Wish 2014| Mrs. AOK, A Work In Progress

Wishing you a stress free holiday!

Q & A With Sweet Face Studio #BlogDesign #Etsy

I have the absolute pleasure of interviewing my friend, Tenns.  Tenns owns Sweet Face Studio, a web and graphic design studio that I LOVE!  Sweet Face Studio is stocked full of goodies from blog templates, social media icons, planners, business cards, and beautiful digital wallpapers.  I’ll let Tenns tell you more 🙂

Q & A with Sweet Face Studio| Blog design| Blog | Blog Themes| Blog Tips

Q&A with Sweet Face Studio

 

AOK: What services does Sweet Face Studio offer?
SFS: Sweet Face Studio is a web and graphic design studio that specializes in beautiful websites, blog themes, and branding as well an array of high quality digital and graphic design products.

AOK: Can you share with everyone what they can expect from your shop?
SFS: You can expect fun, girly, and high quality digitally designed products and compassionate service ready to meet your needs. We go above and beyond to not only produce the best products we can, but to provide the absolute best customer service, always going above and beyond the normal call of duty to insure that our clients are satisfied through the entirety of their project. We value and love our clients!

AOK: Where did the name Sweet Face Studio come from?

SFS: The name came from one of the many nicknames, or rather terms of endearment that I call my son.  I wanted my business to represent something close to my heart, but still have a clear distinction of what type of business, we are, hence the “Studio” in our name.

AOK: Do you have a favorite design?
SFS: Honestly, I love all the designs. I go back and forth at different times, depending on what I’m working on as to what designs I like the most. I’ll probably say I’m a little more partial to the web designs, since I love building and creating sites.

AOK: Being a blogger and designer, how does that affect how you do things? Do you think that helps or hurts your process?

SFS: You know it really depends! It definitely helps when it comes to web design, because being a blogger myself, I’m already inside of the head of a blogger, and so I know what they’re looking for in regards to design. I will say that at times, I get caught up in designing and blogging takes a backseat. Fortunately, given that they are both creative outlets for me, I can switch back and forth if I feel I’m getting burnt out. Also, my time is limited, because I’m a full-time SAHM/WAHM, and I have to keep my priorities straight and put my family first. Sometimes, there’s just not enough time in the day to do all three, and being a mom will NEVER fall by the wayside… nor will being a wife!

AOK: What is one thing you see missing on most blogs, that you would add?
SFS: Oh gosh, I think as a designer, I’m always seeing something on every blog I visit. No design is perfect, so there’s always something that can be improved upon, added, or changed. This includes my own blog, because I’m constantly changing it and finding things I’d like to add or take away. If anything I recommend all bloggers have very noticeable social media links. Whether these are icons, buttons, text links, etc., having a noticeable way for people to read out to you is a must.

AOK: How often should bloggers/business owners update their website?
SFS: You know, there’s no set rule on this. I update my site as I feel needed, but most of the time it’s small changes like moving things around. I rarely do a complete overhaul, where I’m completely rebranding myself. Refreshing can happen whenever a blogger feels like they need to change things with their sites. However, a complete rebrand should happen sparingly and for a specific reason or goal. I don’t recommend rebranding, just because you have a new design. Rebranding is pretty much a re-introduction. If you not “introducing” yourself, don’t do a rebrand or a complete overhaul. Revamping and refreshing is usually minimal and sticks with your same or similar design elements that you already have.

AOK: You wrote a post on branding, can you share a little about branding for bloggers?
SFS: Ha! I might have answered this a little in the previous question, but I’ll go into a bit more detail here. Branding is so important, because it’s not just about your header or logo image or other design elements of your site. It is all encompassing, representing you, how you are, what you offer, and how you do it. It’s the overall feel of you or your product. You want your branding to represent you as well as possible. For a Blogger, you branding is important, because when someone lands on your site, they need to get an immediate feel of who you are. They should be able to feel for lack of a better phrase, your essence when they land on your site. It also allows companies who may reach out to you to get a better idea of who are, makes you look more professional, and provides an attractive aesthetic that is appealing. This is especially important for the blogger that is looking to monetize or blog professionally.

AOK: Besides blogging, business, and branding, you have incredible printables! What are a few of your favorite designs?
SFS: Thanks so much hun! I love creating, and although I’ve always been creative, this is the first time it has manifested itself in a way in which I can honestly see that it makes people happy. I really do have so many favorite designs! If you’re talking about my own designs, again I’m partial to my web designs, because they’re probably the ones I’m most proud of. I’m completely self-taught as a developer and designer, and it’s a huge learning curve that I just so happen to have a knack for. However, it hasn’t come without many sleepless nights. Secondly, I love, love, love my business card designs. They are probably my absolute favorite after web design. To have my designs as a part of someone’s collateral, branding is so amazing. I mean, these people are out and about passing out their business card to customers and clients, and I created them. It’s like 6 degrees of separation… in an unconventional way I guess. It’s just really cool!

That is cool 🙂

AOK: Do you have anything new in your shop for the holidays?
SFS: I do! I listed some holiday printables a while back that I really love. I also have some new blog themes (that are commerce-ready too) in the shop and some super chic and fun cell phone wallpapers. I’ll most likely take a design hiatus for the holidays to decompress and get inspired, so I got everything in the shop early therefore people have plenty of time to shop!

AOK: If you were to take your services to the Shark Tank, which “Shark” would you choose?
SFS: My goodness, I don’t even know! I’ve only seen the show a few times here and there, so I’m not super familiar with the individuals on there. However, I do know the concept, and with that being said, I’d choose the one that I felt was most compelled by my mission and really believed in and respected me and my business.

If you’re asking… Mark Cuban, is the computer guy and Robert. I believe the two of them are the ones who invest the most in online businesses. 🙂

Thank you, Tenns, for sharing with us today! Please check out Sweet Face Studio, you’re going to LOVE all the goodies, Sweet Face Studio has to offer.  Right now is a great time to check out Sweet Face Studio, there’s a sale running today through Monday (12/1/14).

Celebrating 1 Year of MrsTeeLoveLifeLaughter #Giveaway

Happy Birthday + Blogiversary Mrs. Tee Celebration and Giveaway

It’s funny, you start a blog, you think you’ll just put something out there… maybe someone will read or maybe not, but that’s okay if they don’t.  Then when people listen, and you connect, it’s an unexpected, but delightful surprise.  Blogging has brought me SO many delights, I’m always humbled by the immense support and love the blog community shares.  Many SITS Saturdays ago, I ‘met’  Tiffany from MrsTeeLoveLifeLaughter, we clicked over tweets, laughed over texts and the occasional google chat. We’ve been navigating this blogging thing together, supporting one another, and I’ve got to tell you..
