one of those mondays. few things making my day though.

good morning sunshines!!!

i should have just called in sick to work today...
i went to bed before the Patriots/Colts game even ended, i was feeling that yuck. (and if you know me, you know i love football. LOVE IT.)

you know when you're feeling so terrible and just want to cry? especially when someone says or does something sweet and it fits into that perfect place in your heart?

a co-worker of mine, Marty did that for me today. He's a talented artist who sells minnie portraits of dogs. I told him i would love one of my Maverick, my bichon baby girl. Look what he brought to me on this yucky monday morning:

it looks EXACTLY like my little girl. Exactly. I just about cried when he handed it to me. I'm a mess of emotions...

it's just one of those Mondays.

but i won't whine! especially when there's so much kindness in the world.

there's a lot of lovely girls in our blogging world that are dear friends to me. and are SO TALENTED. Since i failed to do a sharing sunday post, i will do a shortened version of it. AND! it's a treat for you guys as well because... they're doing awesome giveaways/deals!

Fallon of Sweet Fancy
i've raved about her wonderful work when i purchased her personalized postcard pillow for darling friend. i'm about to get another Christmas gift from her store and saw that she is having an exclusive offer for her readers! she'll send you one of her lovely birdcage ornaments for free as a sweet thank-you. Read more about it here & if you need gift ideas, i highly suggest shopping at Olive Handmade.

many of you love this heisschic's humorous fun stories she candidly shares, me included. My favorite posts though, are about *him* . She's holing her FIRST EVER giveaway of her favorite things, included the above nail polish that just might be my new favorite colour. Seriously, sign up for her giveaway.

my life saver in helping me with my ornament swap. She's such a doll really. Not only is she incredibly kind, she's also very talented. She reccently opened her etsy shop where you can buy beautiful prints like the one above. PSSST... you could be that lucky one who wins a print. Find the details on Rhianne's post here.

and last BUT CERTAINLY not least,
C.C. - my caitlin- of Sunshin Lovin
made my day.
how adorable is she? she's holding up my postcard, her first piece of snail mail to her new apartment. CHEERS to your new new adventure!

lovies, thanks for letting me share, even if it's a day late. i love my friends, i truly adore each and every one of you. xo
