Is it just me or January a boring month? Next week I’m going back to work and I’m actually looking forward to it. I’ve worked from home a little but I haven't been in the field since November 20th. I’ve been busy and entertained until this week. I'm running out of stuff to do or not interesed in the last few items on my "to do" list.

My friend Gigi at Guitars and Pralines awarded me with The Chic award. Thank you, Gigi for my first award of 2010. The rules are to pass this award to someone you admire. I’m going to pass The Chic award to my friend Melissa at Create The Life You Love. Melissa has a heart of gold and she’s extremely talented. I admire the way Melissa lives her life and her eye for beauty. Check out her blog and her cute Etsy shop. I just ordered one of these CUTE note pads and a few other things.


Y’all know Nautical Kate, right? Well, every week on her blog she features a blogger dressed in a nautical outfit. Check out who’s featured this week?

You totally deserved that award. I love your blog and you are such a sweetie.

We are heading out of town on a mini vacay. We agree, January is a boring month so we always try to plan a small trip. Heading to Bayou Country. Have a super wonderful weekend.

XOXO

Awhh...such a cute photo over at "Nautical by Nature"... you were such a cute little girl!! My lil' bro had the same sailor outfit as your brother... and my uncle was in the Navy in SanDiego and sent us a sailor hat, so I used to love dressing him up in his little sailor outfits. He was such a trooper! :)

And so sweet of you to give a shout out to Melissa...she is so deserving. She has such a 'givers' heart, and it's wonderful to see her blessed in return!

Got your 'shoe' postcard today. Thank you. You certainly did not need to do that ...but I love hearing from you, so I'm glad you did. Prayers are a given, sweet friend. When you're hurting, we all feel it.

love you,
~Tanya

Jan and Feb are my least favorite months. They are so very boring!

January isn't boring...it's my birthday month!!!

The Ashes said...

Very cute! Love the little sailor suits.

Do people still do that to their kids?

I know what you mean. It’s great to get a break, but sometimes you can run out of things to do or get to stuff that you really don’t want to do. Congrats on the award and the note pads that you ordered are really cute. I’ll have to checkout Melissa’s shop.

I love that photo and you and your siblings on Kate’s blog. It is beyond adorable!

P.S. I left a tag for you on my blog.

I know what you mean sister, winter in general is boring! It's so long, cold, and dreadful, and I'm sorry but winter sports just don't cut it for me. I've been trying to rack my brain thinking of ways to fight the borderline depression that these long winter months bring, and I'm thinking keeping myself super busy will do? Moving to a sunny, tropical beach for three or four months just isn't in my budget, maybe next year?

Oh Jill....thank you so much for this award. It's an honor!!

melissa said...

Oh, and I forgot. You and your sibling dressed the sailor outfits - adorable! I recently posted a photo of my oldest son dressed the same, back when he was little :).

If my bday wasn't in January I might not like it as much, but it is nice because it gives me something to look forward to after Christmas and New Years. Congrats on the award, and what a cute pic of you and your siblings :)

Jill said...

Oh my word - you haven't been to work since Nov. 20th???? I'm so jealous!

Lauren Kelly said...

I'm with you girl.... the craziness of the holiday season is over and January seems flat out boring, but it can also be a nice change when you get past November and December, ha!

Lis said...

Honey I am dying over the picture on Kate's blog - it is to die for cute!! :)

And loving that note pad so much!!

January is always boring for me and I usually have Post Christmas depression!!!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! xoxo
