What I Love Wednesday

As I posted here I went have been going through a rough "growing phase" the past month, but I am finally seeing this as a very positive thing! One of my true friends (one that is EXACTLY like me only about 15 years older, so if I call her I am ready to serious action!) told me that she wants to see my setting some goals. Not huge ones necessarily, but little things, which at first were just like doing the laundry today. One of the big goals was to start putting myself back out in the world instead of hiding and what better way to do this than to get back to blogging (which I love) and communicating all of my bloggy friends! In fact this will be my second post of the day. I am linking up for "What I Love Wednesday" at This Kind of Love

One of my goals is to get organized! I am a very visual person and need to have my goals or tasks for the day written down. I had avoided getting a planner until now, I think I subconsciously didn't want to know what day it was, when bills needed to be paid, or that life was going on without me!!! Not Anymore!!! I finally ordered my Lilly Planner-thank goodness I could still find one and had only missed 2 months!!! I ordered it from The Pink Pelican which was a great experience! Super fast and I got a free gift for the first time ordering from them. New favorite online Lilly Store-they also carry lots of other fabulous brands!

LOVE this planner. So glad I picked the design and I don't know how I have lived without  it. Making the lists everyday is helping so much and it looks like I have been using it forever already. Plus it makes me smile when I look at it-huge plus!

Last pair of Pink Fornash earrings that they had. Love them and they were reasonably priced!

My Free Gift from the Pink Pelican! This car magnet was PERFECT for me as I have my monogram on my car as well as a the Vineyard Vines Pink Whale! Best part is no one around here has one!!!

Here are more of my "loves" courtesy of Pinterest. Click on my Pinterest link on the right sidebar to follow me and I will follow you back! The more Pins I see the better!!!

 My perfect Southern Mansion.

LOVE this dining room in the home above. Everything in it is perfect, except for the Blue and White China-I know its popular, but I have never been a fan.

LOVE this exquisite detail! It is so antiquey and unique. 

I want this perfect dress! Love the color, style, and everything about it.

 This picture brings back so many memories. I LOVED bows like this, I think I had one in every color and refused to go anywhere without one in my hair!!!

Love this! Perfect word for me.

 LOVE this room! I would have enjoyed this so much when having sleepovers as a kid. If I had kids and a beach house this room would definitely be in it!!!

LOVE it! So true!

Lilly Love-of course everything in this pic makes me smile!!! I almost got the Agenda in this design, but I am glad I picked the one I did!
