Tennis Bracelet Give-Away

For those of you that have been reading my blog for a while, you know that I have my very own jeweler. She is the best designer in the world and I love all her pieces! I'm talking about my BFF Leigh. She is celebrating her 1st Blog Birthday by giving away a "tennis bracelet." Well, maybe not the real thing, but she sure fooled me with her unique bead work!! It sure sparkles like one!! Go here to her blog quick and leave her a comment! "Sale ends Friday."

Monday morning on the way to school, Alise and I were playing “I Spy.” Even though I am driving, I LOVE to play this old game with her because she is such an easy player. However, the conversation we had below threw me for a loop that day.

Alise: “I spy something orange.”

Me: “The leaves on the trees.”

Alise: “No, Mommie! Your teeth!”

Me: “My teeth?!? My teeth aren’t orange, Silly Girl!”

Alise: “Yes they are! They look like Aunt Mirya’s. When I grow up, I want teeth like hers.”

To this day, I am still confused. I didn’t eat anything orange that morning for breakfast and I KNOW I brushed my teeth. I also know that my dear, sweet, prego cousin-in-law does not have orange teeth, either. Mirya, I apologize. Maybe Baby Girl was just getting the colors orange and white mixed up that day…I have no idea. But feel privileged that she would MUCH rather have YOUR orange teeth than mine!! Ha, ha!! (As if my two phases of braces and the money my parents had to dole out in my tween years no longer matters!)

I am SO ready to begin decorating for Christmas! I am ready to put up all the trees in the house, replace the mirror with the huge Santa picture over my rose bowl collection, and display all of my nativity scenes (I collect them). Each year I try to add something new to my Christmas collection. A few weeks ago, I picked up some new table scarves and other accessories from a local home decorating store. I’ll show them to you in the next week or two when I am smack in the middle of my decorating frenzy. Be sure to show me your Christmas decorating style, too. What a fun way to get ideas, don’t you think?

If you have not tried Philosophy’s newest lip balm called “S’mores,” go to Sephora and order some NOW! It’s only $12 a tube and it is THE best lip gloss I have ever tried! The smell is awesome! I’m being facetious, but it’s good enough to eat!



  1. Thank you Laura!! How funny Alise thought you had orange teeth!

    You are a bad influence on me...I just ordered some new lip gloss!

  2. That is so funny about Alise. Sometimes you don't know what they're talking about! :-)

    I'm ready to decorate too. I bought my new nutcracker yesterday and I love it (I buy one new one every year to add to my collection).

  4. Thanks for the heads up on the giveaway. I've only won one other giveaway. Usually my luck is pretty slim!!! But that bracelet is beautiful!!!

    So sorry but I chuckled when I read the orange teeth story!!!

  5. I guess it's time to get out the whitening treatment again. LOL! It's sweet that she wants my teeth. LOL. You give her a big hug and kiss from me.
