This and That.........and a thank you.

** I am always so blown away and humbled by you guys. I am not even a big cryer (well, maybe a little), but yesterday your comments and emails really touched me. I felt like I was reading comments and emails from my family and dear friends. Then I thought to myself, well they are in a way, they're my blog family/friends. That being said, I believe in the power of prayer and I thank each and everyone one of you for praying for sweet Taylor.  I am so happy to tell you she was fever free all day yesterday and starting to feel back to her spunky little self. Our doctor has decided against doing any blood work and thinks this was just a very nasty virus. I sure do love my sweet girl and seeing her sick like this has been horrible, but I am so thankful she is feeling better and back to being herself.

** Tonight we are going with some good friends to take the kids to see the Holiday Festival of Lights. Carson has been begging to go, and we like to visit the lights at least twice, so we figured we would go now before it gets really crowded. I can't tell you guys how beautiful all the lights are, it is so magical even to me, so I can only imagine what it's like to a child. If you don't live too far, you should consider making the drive. It's totally worth it!

*It's supposed to be freezing here in Charleston the rest of the week. I guess this is hello winter!!!
As much as I love a good dress, it's too cold, so it's time to bring out the sweaters. Would you believe I don't have hardly any sweaters in my closet?!? So, on my hunt to add a few new ones to my closet, I found these three that I love. This one is on it's way to me!! 

I am also a big legging fan when it comes to the fall and winter. To me, they are more comfortable during the day than jeans.  I swear by these, but I am dying to get a pair of the faux leather leggings. These look like the real deal, and they are by Spanx, so I am sure they suck you in ;) 

Also worth the mention these and these Rag and Bone booties are 25% off right now!! This style has never been marked down, and sizes are almost gone. So if you want them I would grab them now! 

Last, I can't wait to start burning my Holiday Nest candle this weekend. I just noticed mine is almost all burned down from last year, so time to replace it! Hint hint Todd, this would be a great birthday present ;)
