Many of you are taking final exams and completing this semester. The last thing you want to think about right now is going back to class. But I believe you should know about this amazing website where you can rent books for more than 40% off normal bookstore prices. & they donate to an amazing organization! Or you can rent one of your own books & get paid by doing so!

Here are some perks from Campus Book Rentals :
-save 40-90% off of bookstore prices

-free shipping both ways
-can highlight in the textbooks
-flexible renting periods
-donate to Operation Smile with each textbook rented

You think I'm kidding? Just search for a book you need this semester on your school website then check out Campus Book Rentals!
Have a book you want to rent out? Get paid for every time your book is rented through RentBack 
Its simple. Send them your book. They do all the hard stuff like renting the book out and you get paid!

The most inspiring thing about renting from Campus Book Rentals is they donate to Operation Smile. Operation Smile is an organization who helps children who are born with cleft palates and their families.

If you need more information here is a video that shows how this all works! What are you waiting for? Rent now!!!

Be Blessed

Hello there!
Last night I experienced something I've never had happen to me in all my 28 years on earth.
I rushed home from work,
let the dogs out
headed to church to watch my niece sing in her Christmas play which I thought started at 6.
I hurried to park on the street {the only spot available without having to park in the garage},
grab my stuff,
noticed it was 5:57 and rushed inside.
As I was about to walk across the street I heard a man ask me if I'm going to church.
Of course I said yes then turned around to continue walking through the crosswalk until I heard him ask "WILL YOU PRAY FOR ME"
I've never had a random person on the street ask me this.
I had my phone, keys & wallet in hand
but it never crossed my mind that he would steal from me.
I walked back over to him
he held my hand
& I prayed.
He wished me a Merry Christmas and to have a blessed day
& we parted ways.
As I was walking inside I had tears in my eyes.
He doesn't know this but that blessed me more than he'll ever know.
My church is located in downtown & isn't the safest place to be.
There was a cop sitting in his car which is probably why I felt it was ok to pray with him.
& little did I know that the program didn't start until 6:30 so I had plenty of time to stop.
We're all so busy with our lives that we just need to slow down.
The world is so full of hatred.
Slow down & bless someone!
This week Hello Darling Boutique is offering 15% off all items.
Do you need a Christmas gift?
We have scarves & fleece lined leggings that are perfect stocking stuffers.
Sweaters, cardigans, lace tops, sequined elbow tops & more!
Christmas is only 12 days away!

Birthday Shenanigans

This weekend was filled with celebrating my 28th birthday.
I swear I have the best boyfriend to ever walk the earth!
I was able to leave work at 4.
We headed straight to my niece's school to watch her be an angel in a Christmas play.
Then went to eat with friends.
Friday night I started to feel like the flu was hitting me.
I stocked up on Nyquil & Dayquil & was out for the night at 10:30.
Talk about getting old! ha
Saturday morning I had a photo session.
It was scorching hot where everyone else was iced in.
Then Sunday we headed to Orlando to Sea World to visit with the penguins.
Ever since our last visit I've become obsessed with penguins.
Mr. Popper's Penguins needs to be me!
When we arrived Josh motioned that we needed to get tickets at the "reservation" desk.
Above the booth was a sign about the penguin tour!
My first thought was "omg no way I get to touch these little babies and take pictures with them"
Then I had tears in my eyes.
We walked around to the meeting place, watched people feeing the seal lions then headed back for our tour.
We saw the nursery, freezer where all the food is kept, a map of the exhibit along with where all the eggs are laid. Right now there are 23 eggs the penguins are sitting on.
Then my heart exploded when we walked into Antarctica.
The tour guide allowed 3 penguins in this tiny area for us to touch & take pictures. 

This little fella walked over my feet then pecked at them. I seriously wanted to pick him up and bring him home with me.

Sunday could not have been more perfect.


We ended our night at the Huey Lewis & The News concert where I watched people my parents age dance to music I didn't even know!
One guy even fell asleep while his wife danced next to him!

High Five For Friday

Today I turn 28!
How crazy is that.
This past year has been so good to me.
I cannot wait to see what this year holds.

Here's how my week went:

I ordered the most adorable cognac boots & the very next day they were sitting on my front porch!
As soon as the weather decides its winter I'll get to wear them and post pictures. The best part was they were only $28 with free shipping.
Thank you Cyber Monday!

Wednesday night Josh took me out to dinner.
Free appetizers since I sign up for every member club you can to receive free goodies!
Wild West Shrimp is oh so delicious!

Thursday I had the day off.
Finally made an appointment to have my hair high lighted, cut, washed, dried & styled!

So refreshing.
Then it was off to the Thursday Night Jags game!
My brother Josh gives the best birthday gifts.
One year he paid to have a message put on the big screens in the stadium.
& ever since then I just expect him to do it.
Well this year he didn't but told me to wait a few quarters.
I had no idea what that meant but I went with it.
During the 3rd quarter I notice a staff member walking up with a huge button and certificate that says it's my birthday!
When he passed my row I looked at Josh {my bf} and pouted saying "well it's my birthday too" haha
& next thing I know this guy is looking for "JENNY"
obviously he was looking for me!
The Jags won their first home game of the season & we were on ESPN for the after show.

Before heading home Josh & our friends Ashli & Derek sang happy birthday to me in the truck & we ate chocolate chips cookies from Publix!

Today I've already received flowers from my favorite sales rep, my manager bought lunch & I cannot wait to get off work to be with my main man.

I also want to ask you all to vote for one of my sweet friends {Traci} to become a top mommy blog.
She has the most gorgeous little girl named Charli that she blogs about.
Check out her blog & vote by clicking on the link to the right!

Enjoy your weekend!
We're off to do Christmas pictures & a fun weekend in Sea World & going to see Huey & The News!

Hello all!
I figured today would be the perfect day to sum up the last two weeks of my life.
We had a friend get married last weekend.
Josh had friends come into town.
We ate at this restaurant that is right on the water.
Had the perfect view.
Tried my first oyster.
Loved it.
Steamed is the way to go. Add a little hot sauce & a cracker!
Then we walked around St. Augustine.
I complained about my wedges.
I mean who walks around on uneven brick in wedges anyways?
Not the brightest idea.
 Stopped at a local bar and had apple cider.
Danced the night away at the wedding.
Laughed too much.
Didn't want our friends to leave.
Watched Catching Fire.
Was completely lost since I didn't watch the first one.
Looked at wedding rings.
Only because Josh's friends were looking at new rings.
Worked for 3 days.
 Then is was Thanksgiving.
We ate at my families lunch.
Quickly made it to his parents to continue eating then I got a migraine.
Slept for about 2 hours then went Black Friday shopping.
Walmart wasn't as crazy as I thought it would be.
Went to 4 different Walmarts, Target then to the mall to waste time before going to Home Depot.
My parents bought me a vanity sink for my bathroom.
We ended up with a step ladder, faucet & this really awesome firepit.
Went home & fell asleep around 630 am.

Josh worked Friday.
I had a Christmas photo session back in St. Augustine.
We had dinner and made it an early night.
Saturday we had Ryne's 4th birthday party.
Then our friends were hosting the FL/FSU game which we missed but had a great time playing games & drinking hot chocolate & butterscotch schnapps.
Was terrified by Derek dressed up as "Scream".
cried my eyes out because I thought my life was ending.
Put up my Christmas house lights & tree.
Ate a delicious meal at Outback.
& watched Bad Grandpa. {don't waste your money}
Now it's Monday.
It's my birthday week.
& we're celebrating all week long.
Hello Darling has been so blessed & busy.
We packed up a bunch of orders last night and have a ton more to pack once the shipment arrives!
This weekend I have another Christmas shoot.
Then Josh is taking me to see the penguins!
Sea World here we come!
