Friday's Letters

Dear Blog Friends.... Merry Christmas from the Culliphers! Unfortunately I cannot send everyone a Christmas card in the mail so I am doing in virtually. Haven't ordered your Christmas cards yet, check out Tiny Prints for this style and other adorable selections. Dear Holiday Season... I wish you lasted longer. There are so many good things you bring us such as Starbucks seasonal coffee beverages and Christmas lights. Dear Cyber Monday.... Thank you for nearly completing my holiday shopping this year. You were very good to me. Dear Christmas Decor.... You make me extremely happy. It is amazing how this time of year puts me in such a good mood. Dear days off... You now consist of watching Christmas movies and wrapping gifts and that is okay with me. Dear Power Ball... I might not have won the jackpot but at least I won back enough money to pay for the tickets I purchased... maybe next time I'll have better luck.

Christmas Wish List

Dear Santa

Kindle Fire HD 8.9"
So this is one thing I can scratch off my list because hubby already ordered it for me. Eeeeeee!!! So excited to get this in!! I love being surprised, but I am still excited about this, even though I know I am receiving it this Christmas. 

Kendra Scott Earrings
I have a pair of the Elle earrings and am in LOVE.
I am also loving the Darby and Danielle collection.
I'm thinking my collection needs to look like this. Yep, this will do.
Sun Glasses
The holiday's are a good time to ask for a high dollar pair of glasses. Let's be honest... we all treat ourselves to many of the things we want. Often we want more expensive things but don't always want to dish out the $$$ all at once. Am I right? I am loving these Tory Burch and Ray-Ban styles.
Beauty Products
This girl loves some beauty products. I can never have too many tubes of MAC lipstick. Taylor Swift Wonderstruck is my go to perfume and a new bottle of Essie nail polish is the perfect stocking stuffer.

Let's be honest.... I am obsessed. So I know there is more than likely not going to be a Lois under the Christmas tree, but hey - it is a "wish list". The Tory Burch, Michael Kors or Coach will do for now.

Lounge Wear and Gift Cards
As soon as I get home I change. Sorry, I'm not sorry. I have to dress up for work and honestly, I just want to get comfortable when I get home. I ordered an adorable pair of pajamas from Target recently but as soon as I put them on, my husband said AMBER - What are you wearing? Those are old people pajamas!! Um... no. This was the cute white and gold polka dot pjs I am sure you have all purchased this year. But this girl doesn't sleep like that so it was unusual for him.  So back to basics - I LOVE a good pair of Nike Capris. If you don't have a pair, you need to add it to your wish list. They are the most amazing workout/lounge pants ever. 

Gift Cards aren't my fav. but...if you can't think of anything else... I would love one from Impressions, Dillard's, Nordstrom or Victoria's Secret
and of course I have to add a pair of gorgeous shoes
*sigh* a girl can dream
one day I will have a closet full of shoes with the signature red bottom
What's on your wish list this Christmas?

Motivational Monday + A very special day

For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.” -1 Corinthians 12:13
 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and he was baptized, he and all his, straightway." -Acts 16:31,33
Acts 16:31, 33 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes;and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.”

November 25, 2012 - I was baptized

For awhile now, I have had a strong tugging feeling inside to be baptized. However, I have just had a lot of anxiety about coming before the church and professing this. Last weekend I was with my husbands grandmother and she started talking about how she missed me at church that morning - that it was a great service and they performed a baptism. I knew that this was the perfect opportunity to profess my feelings with her. She hugged me and told me it is the most special and important thing I would ever do. I told her that I would love to go with her and Papaw to the evening service and speak with our pastor about being baptized. When we got to church that evening, we met privately before our church service with our pastor and I explained to him my feelings and wishes of joining the church.  We discussed it further and set up a time for the next weekend. I cannot tell you how overjoyed I am by taking this step in my life.

What every girl needs in her stocking

I couldn't think of a better stocking stuffer idea to share with you. This my friends is my magic wand. The hair gods knew what they were doing when they invented this little tool. I get many compliments on the volume I achieve and questions on what I use to get my poof. Well ladies, here you have it. This new tool is called Teez with Eez. It's name could not be a better fit. With 1-3 back combs, it leaves your hair with the perfect poof in seconds. One stroke is like multiple strokes with the design of this tool. I just found out they made a travel size that is perfect for your purse. How perfect!! This ladies is a MUST BUY!

Motivational Monday - Blessings

We often overlook the things we have to be thankful for until the holiday season.
This quote I found on pinterest really hit me hard:
"Dear God,
I woke up today
I am healthy
I am alive
Thank you"
There are so many blessings in life we tend to overlook. Just being able to wake up and live another day is something to be thankful for.
Take this time to think about what you truly have to be thankful for, for you will realize it is much more than just material things. Often things that can only be seen, touched and felt within your heart.

Friday's Letters - Smiling's My Favorite

Dear Friday..... HALLELUJAH! I am so excited you are finally here. Today I am getting all my Christmas items out of the attic, putting in my favorite Christmas movies, ELF and The Santa Claus {per the usual when decorating for Christmas} and Decking our Halls {and everything in between} Dear Black Friday.... You are ONE WEEK AWAY!! Oh my. I need to figure out what I am getting everyone for Christmas - pronto. Dear Bloggers.... Is anyone else at a loss of what to tell people to get them for Christmas? I guess I should stop buying everything some of the things I really want. I would love to hear what is on your Christmas wish list. Dear Bentley..... When I re-set my alarm to sleep in a little longer, I don't like it when you come and slap me in the face to get wanting to cuddle with me for awhile later makes up for it though. Dear Christmas Music at work.... You make me happy. I just LOVE the holidays. Dear Nails..... You are in desperate need of a manicure.
