Holiday Entertaining with C. Wonder

Nothing gets me more excited for the holidays than adorable entertaining pieces. I can't help but swoon over these darling accessories from C. Wonder. I'm having to hold myself back as I have a whole china cabinet full of festive holiday pieces. Ooops! Seriously, when we moved this spring, I found highball glasses, appetizer plates and platters I forgot we had. That being said, I better stop myself. But, there's no reason YOU can't snap up a few of these cuties! Feast your eyes on some of the season's most stylish pieces...

Are you loving these as much as I am? Hop on over to C. Wonder and see the rest of the collection. Did I mention there's a 30% off everything sale going on? You can thank me later. Happy Friday Eve, y'all! :)

Must Have Holiday Necklaces

It's crazy to think I'm already scouting out holiday baubles but ready or not, the time is upon us my friends. I started perusing holiday collections over the weekend and I must say, BaubleBar has it going on. Any one of these beauties can jazz up an otherwise plain outfit in a hot minute. It was really hard to narrow it down to four but, alas, here you have my favorites. 

See the full holiday collection here. Which one is your favorite? Here's wishing you a fantastic and painless Monday! :)

A Rock N Roll Kind of Weekend

I fully intended on getting this post up on Monday but that just didn't happen. We celebrated two family birthdays on Sunday and it ended up being a late night. Side note: I can't wait for Thanksgiving. All that family togetherness on Sunday has me so excited!

Anyway, last weekend the husband and I experienced something really, really cool. The Rock N Roll Marathon. The husband is a runner, me not so much. Let me rephrase...not at ALL. We decided to watch this one and cheer on the runners and let me tell you, it was the coolest thing I've experienced in a very long time.

18,000+ runners made their way to Savannah's Historic District to participate and it was down right crazy seeing that many people corralled on Bay Street at the start line. The amount of energy was immeasurable and although I was only spectating, I felt so inspired. Not only to hit the gym but just inspired in general. Inspired to conquer my goals. Inspired to set new person records.

I loved seeing our city abuzz, hearing stories from the runners and just being in the center of the action. Here's a little video from the start line. You may have already seen it on instagram, but I thought I'd share it again because it's just so cool.

Are you a runner? How have you been inspired lately? Hope you have a fantastic Wednesday. We are inching closer and closer to the weekend. Cheers to that!

Happy Veteran's Day!

It's not often enough that we thank our service men and women. Today, I'd like to take an opportunity to do just that. 

THANK YOU to those that have served.
THANK YOU to those that are currently serving. 
THANK YOU to those that gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect our country and our freedoms. 
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU will never be enough. 

I always get so emotional when it comes to our military men and women. There are just no words for the appreciation and pride I have for these brave souls. 

Please be sure to thank a Veteran today...or any day. It will mean the world to them.

I also thought it would be cool to share the history of Veteran's Day and why we celebrate it on 11/11. I was recently enlightened and I hope you are too. See the history here...and don't worry, it's short!

Enjoy your day and I'll see you back here tomorrow!
