Miscellany Monday

Just thought I'd share some randomness with y'all today : )

(1) Since I had to take summer classes all summer I didn't get to go on ANY vacations so when my mom told me she was going to Mississippi for work I knew I wanted to go so I could spend some time with Nicole!! It just so happens my mom has two meetings in the SAME town that Nicole lives in. God just knew we needed some hang out time ; )

(2) I took a trip to the Mart last week with my mom and scored some amazing deals on a few statement necklaces. For those of you who aren't familiar with the Mart it's basically a huge mall type place in Atlanta where buyers can shop to get merchandise for their stores. There are three buildings, the gift mart, the apparel mart, and the merchandise mart. My mom has a showroom in the merchandise mart so I have been going up there for as long as I can remember. You have to have a business license to get in and shop but if you know someone who owns their own business (even if they don't necessarily sell things that can be bought at the mart) you can get in with them. It's great because you buy everything wholesale or less. So all these necklaces I bought were 60% off retail price! I definitely went a little crazy. 

The showrooms in the gift mart weren't open so we just did a little window shopping! I can't wait to go back in a few weeks and shop around in here!!! SO much cute stuff!

(3) Nicole shared a great story on her blog this morning about her fiance, Tyler's baptism. She also shared a song that we have been singing a lot at church this summer and I am obsessed with it! It is just a great reminder that NO MATTER WHAT we do God is faithful. Listen to the words of the song because they are SO true!!

(4) Here are a few of my favorite recent Pinterest finds..

Hope y'all have a great Monday! 


  1. This was quite the random post!!! ;) I seriously can't wait to see your sweet face, Jame!!! Hurry hurry!!

  2. I wanted to go so bad when my store went, but wasn't able to! I'm definitly jealous!

  3. Oh the Mart!!! I work there during the January/July shows every year! My company has a huge showroom on the 15th floor so we all head down from the office during those two shows.

    I, sadly, have yet to be able to shop it! I'm going to have to figure out how to do that sometime ASAP.

    Glad you had a great time!

  4. Loved the miscellany :-) Darling last quote (with the ballerinas) and those cozy outfits have me longing for fall... Happy Monday to you!
