5 Things to be Happy About

I can't believe that its Friday already! This week seemed to fly by; which I guess is what happens when you are keeping busy! I just got back from the Becoming Conference last weekend and now I'm gearing up to go on two more trips in October. In April, I vowed that I was done with airplanes for the year and yet it's looking like I'm going to board five, yes five more planes in October. Let's hope that the people I  sit next to are extra friendly and potentially offer me a hand to hold!

1. I had blast with my sweet friends Kate and Lauren. These girls are seriously a hoot and a holler and then some. We had so many moments of laughter as well as they gave me about 20 nicknames, such as merry-carrie and care-bear.

2. I've had some zebra shoes lying around for months now. I've been too afraid to take the plunge and wear them. They are definitely out of my style comfort zone. But after wearing them around the conference for awhile I started to really love them. And thus, this is just another reason why all my money goes straight to Target!

3. I'm working on some new products that will be launched in the months to come. It's been fun to get the creative juices up and running again. I've got some big plans for 2013, so stay tuned!

4. My best friend had a baby a few months ago and I'm kinda obsessed with him. I love being able to go over and play with him.

5. I'm going to join up with Nester and lots of other bloggers for the 31 day challenge. I thought since I changed my blog title and website in April that it would be only fitting to do "31 days of chasing big dreams." I'm going to share little bits of my heart and hopefully give y'all a little encouragement.


  1. I love your zebra shoes!! and I'm going to check out that 30 day challenge!!

  2. Love the 31 Day Idea and think I'm jumping on board. I'm already participating in a local challenge to wear the same dress every day for a month in effort to raise awareness for a local crisis pregnancy center. So looks like I even have my topic! :)

  3. The 31 day challenge sounds great! although I already know there's no way I'm going to have time to blog every day this month :) However I'll definitely be an eager reader of whatever you come up with. The whole big dream thing is becoming a theme for me right now as well :)

  4. I am so in love with those zebra shoes!!! They are so cute!

  5. i love the zebra flats....heading to target now! :)
