still smiling

The best way to describe the way I'm feeling about things in my life lately, is to link up with Jessica today! 

I smile because of these beautiful flowers Eric surprised me with on our anniversary!  Some time's you need something pretty but simple to brighten your day :)
I smile because I got to spend time with my favorite baby toddler and bestie this week!  Snuggling up with an over sized bear, watching Up, stuffing our faces with gold fish, and baby girl pointing at camera saying "cheese" and "cute" made my day!  I wish I could show more pictures but she is chillin' only in her diaper, and you never know what creepers are on the internet :)  (p.s. This truly is terrifying for me to post a picture this close up of my face, with zero editing.  Baby steps.  All those scars used to be massive breakouts, just a few short months ago.  I am so grateful my face is clearing up!)
I smile because I love my marshmallow's stale (please, tell me you do it too!) so Eric opened the bags and put his share in a baggy to keep his fresh.  My bags are almost empty...need I say more?! 
(Let me clarify, I love stale peeps and mallow candies.. not the normal marshmallow's ha)
I smile because I've finally found a good series to get lost in!  (I know, I'm behind the times with this!)  Who has read this book?!  OH MY GOSH!  So good...but I am just SO mad!  Siblings?  Seriously?!  Ah!

I smile because I have the best husband, the best family, the best friend's, and the best client's a girl could ask for! 
It's just the simple things that are making me so happy right now! 
What about you?!

HAHA!! Tere! I thought they looked disgusting too but they aren't! One is peach flavored and the other is sour apple... I know. Gross! But SO good! And they have a little jelly filling. It's like gushers for mallows haha!

Turns out I was right about insecurities! We see them WAY more than other people do. Your face is beautiful and I hardly see any scars at all! But I understand the bravery is takes to post a big picture of your insecurity, so good job!! :) Oh, and I love everything about this post! So sweet!

You guys are funny with your marshmallows (; And you are gorgey!! I'm glad you are getting a little more confident with those baby steps because you SHOULD BE! Seriously.

Jessi said...

You have such a cute blog.

I think I like my marshmallows fresh, can't say I've tried a stale one. Maybe I should? :)

I love this! congrats on your anniversary! so fun! OH! I'm leaving on my honeymoon this weekend! Let me know if you want to do a guest post fo me while I'm gone. You can tell your love story or write about marriage or hatever really! i'd need it by tonight though. Also, I think it's great you posted that picture! and you look beautiful. I struggled with my skin a lot when I was in high school. Thankfully it eventually went away and didn't leave really any scarring. Now I have a new problem. Thunder thighs. Whenever I look at something I don't like about myself, I try to think about something I do like. Okay so my thighs have their own gravitational pull, but at least I have pretty eyes! you get what I'm saying. And your eyes are gorgeous, btw :)

Gail @ Sophisticated Steps said...

I love that pic of you...your eyes! Wow! So pretty.

As for the peep things. Not so much. Sorry. Not a fan. But you can have as many as your little heart desires.

BTW...what's your secret to clearing up your skin??? Do tell! Surely I'm not the only one who wants (needs) to know!

Megan said...

Ughhhh. I have to admit that I absolutely hate peeps. They kinda make me want to vomit. Haha. We would definitely be bff in real life because I'd give you ALL of mine!

You are BEAUTIFUL, Court!! I am dying over how pretty you are! Inside and out. You are amazing!
