Vacation Time!

This morning the hubby and I left for the beach with his family which includes: his parents, his sister and her husband, and our 2 adorable nephews. 

So later today we will be here....


We're headed to Seagrove Beach, FL, our favorite vacation spot.  This vacation always comes at the perfect time each year since we go at the end of the school year.  I can now celebrate the survival of my fourth year of teaching! 

We plan to do a lot of NOTHING! We'll spend time with family, soak up some rays, eat some good seafood, and do some light reading.  I stocked up on books and magazines (thanks Mom!) before we left.   And I anticipate that we will watch the movie Cars at least 5 times!  My nephew Jack already told me that it's the only movie he can find to bring.  Haha! He cracks me up!  Sneaky little guy.  But we'll indulge him because we love him!

Hope that you enjoy your holiday weekend with friends and family too!

Must-Have

My friend Kristin and I hosted a Stella and Dot party for our friend Katie last Sunday.  We had lots of fun getting to help people pick out some beautiful jewelry.  If you were unable to come and would like to order, here's your last chance!  Go to www.stelladot.com/katiewatson.  Click on "find your hostess" link in the top righthand corner.  Enter in "Kristin Stevens" and continue shopping.  Shipping is a flat $5.95, and your jewelry comes in a beautiful package.  I almost didn't want to open mine (almost!). 

Below are a few pictures of some of my favorites.  Some of you may remember that fellow blogger Janell generously donated a Stella and Dot giftcard to our Give Hope Adoption Auction.



I have the arrow necklace below and LOVE IT!


In the catalog, they have the 2 necklaces below layered with the arrow necklace.  (HINT HINT hubby!)





The 2 bangles below are also on my wish list (hope your paying attention hubbs!)



My sister ordered these earrings and wore them to my baby's sister's graduation on Saturday and looked BEAUTIFUL in them!  I will have to borrow them soon!



Get online and order yours today!  It would make a great gift for a friend or an upcoming graduate.What are some of your favorites from the Stella and Dot collection?  It's so hard to choose just one!
