Valentine's Photos

Today we just got a CD of photos taken by our new friend Ian on Valentine's Day weekend .  My amazingly talented friend Aimee did all of the neato props and styling.  And...they gave us the photos as a gift.  Such a fun way to spend a Saturday morning.

Click on Ian and Aimee's names to see more of their many cool projects!

My first Trunk Show!

Today was my first show as a new Stella & Dot stylist!  It was fun having lovely ladies stop by to shop and treat themselves to some cute jewelry.  

Wanna host a show, too?  The average hostess earns $250 in free jewelry!  No joke.  I would love to help you with that.  I will travel!  I also had some ladies today ask..."Can anyone be a stylist?" and the answer is YES! If you're interested in becoming a stylist, it's a super easy process.  Just e-mail me and I'll give you lowdown.

Billy and I celebrated the Sunday morning before Valentine's Day at one of our new favorite places, Fiddle Cakes.  It's a cute little coffee shop/bistro in a house on 8th Ave. South.  We especially love it because they have gluten-free panini sandwiches AND amazing gluten-free brownies.  If you live in Nashville, check it out!  Great local goodness.

I'm really into headbands and hair accessories these days.  My friend Erin and I had a little craft night and we made these heart hair clips.  Just felt, fabric scraps, a hair clip and some hot glue.  Fun and easy.

Our church knows how to party

We love our church for many reasons.  Now I have added one more reason to the list: The Annual Valentine's Banquet.  OMG. So much fun.  They have been advertising this event for several weeks.  Dancing, Dinner, Dress up, Married Couples.  They had me at dancing.  But, tickets were a little expensive for us right now.  $75 a couple.  We decided that we just shouldn't spend the money.  The subject came up in my women's small group the week before.  The ladies were asking me if we were going.  They let me know that some members of the church donate tickets every year to couples that want to go but can't afford it.  Then, what do you know...I got a call the next day from the church saying they wanted us to come and were giving us the tickets as a gift!  Isn't that the best?!!  

The Nazarene girl in me was SO excited to dance with my church family. There's nothing like doing the Electric Slide next to your pastor!  HA!  It was also just a really fun, night to be with Billy and celebrate our marriage with other married couples...some who've been together 30+ years!  I pray that next year we can attend again and maybe even give another deserving couple a pair of tickets as a gift.

B's signature move.  

Cupid Shuffle!

Whitney and Dave

Our pastors! (Killin' it!)

Ahhh....I need more dancing in my life.

Buy some bling from me, ya'll!'s no secret that Billy B. and I are not millionaires.  In fact, we struggle some months to make ends meet on a teacher's salary and musician's unpredictable salary.  I'm sure many of you can relate.  So, I've been looking for ways to supplement our income.  A year ago, my friend Erin introduced me to Stella & Dot jewelry.  I fell in love

Recently, after looking into about what this company stands for and how stylists can make money, I decided that it was a great fit for me.  I'm excited to try it out and see where it goes!  I'm hosting my first trunk show at my house in Nashville on February 19th.  If you're reading're invited!
