A picture is worth a thousand words, WW

The adage "A picture is worth a thousand words" refers to the notion that a complex idea can be conveyed with just a single still image.  What do you think?

This last weekend has flown by and I am so thankful!  My daughter turned 7 this weekend.  She was able to invite all her school friends over and some family friends.  They played around the house and then did a fun fashion show for us.  

Happy Birthday to my daughter, the girls all had such a fun time!

Elizabeth got the cutest tiny art set for her Birthday.  
Today I went to lunch with my husband at Moe's, yum.  Love the Heart logo and the support they provide to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation!
Then enjoyed a spectacular view out my window of tonights setting sun.
PS. Just found these nails on Instagram, adorable! Perfect for Valentines!

Dolly Mack Designs Tote Bag Giveaway

I recently was looking for ideas for my daughter's 7th birthday and happened to find a beautiful handbag designed by Dolly Mack Designs on Facebook.  She is an artist from the UK and we chatted about the possibilities of designing a bag.  The only problem was she is so popular and has a two week waiting list of design requests.  I will definitely keep her page saved in my future shopping plans for my family and friends.

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to interview her for the Artist of the month in the January issue.  She is offering our readers a custom Dolly Mack Designer Tote Bag.

Be sure to enter our Giveaway or send her a direct email to dollymackdesigns@hotmail.co.uk.

Six Reasons Heartfelt Moments are better than Chocolate, WW Entry

Since it's the first of the year, I've been sticking to my exercise regime but have had an incredible desire for chocolate. In order to focus my thoughts on other things I found six reasons heartfelt moments are better than chocolate.  Recently I've been using the Calorie Count app to help me track my progress on my iPhone.    Here are my six snaps from this week that have been helpful.
1.  Go take random heartfelt pictures of flowers!  I went to Lowe's and walked out into the flower garden, took some really pretty pictures and thought this flower was a real beauty.  
2.  Take a few heartfelt moments and look for hearts in your food.  Here Jake found a heart shaped nugget. 
3.  Visit an art gallery to find heartfelt artwork.  
4.  Be creative and draw your own hearts on craft paper, then frame them.
5.  Stop to look up in the sky and see the pretty day.
6.  Head outside and see the setting sun.  (I <3 sunsets!)

What are your heartfelt moments this week that have helped you?  Be sure to leave me a comment and let me know!  Happy Wordless Wednesday to those that participate and have a great week to everyone else!

A Fool-Proof Formula for Making Dreams Come True

I completed a few things today to help in making my dreams come true!  I read a Quote of the Week
If you can Dream it You can Make It! - Walt Disney
Saw this adorable artwork on Facebook, a great visualization!  I think I'd like to have it on my daughters wall!  Then I spent time with my friend Shelly Aristizabal at Venture X, she is launching a new website and we were reviewing the exciting layout.  Venture X has office space for business owners, conference rooms, large rooms for seminars or events and so much more.  It was my first time visiting and if I need to host an event in the future I'll be sure to check them out.
I enjoyed watching tonight's sunset.

Then surfed Instagram and saved this nail art idea for the Heart of Fashion : Nail Heart Art!  Love the Design by Kaitlin Ferland

What's Your Formula for Making Your Dreams Come True?  

Comment below, I'd love to read about them.  Join my Blog hop if you have a blog you'd like to link up for Wordless Wednesdays, sometimes not so wordless.

Happy New Years, Plans for the First Day of 2013

Yesterday we celebrated with Fireworks and Appetizers.  My Father-in-law took this cute photo of Liz creating I Love You.  I've now cleaned the house from the party and have a lot of sorting to do for one of my New Years Resolutions.  The other is an exercise goal that I'm excited about.  Then a few good books from the library to read, Strutting It!, Making Good, and Your Spacious Self.  I hope you have a few photos to share of what you did on New Years Eve and what your plans are today!  

Quote of the Week : 
"Hope is like a road in the country; there was never a road, but when many people walk on it, the road comes into existence."
– Lin Yutang
