Christmas is Coming

I know a lot of you are already getting ready to head back to school.  Mini K has until August 26th and we are going to try and pack as much in as we can over the next few weeks.

The Grove has been nonstop holiday and trunk show prep lately!  The holiday emails are coming in and we are already processing corporate gift orders and a LOT of people seem to be having holiday weddings this year.  This bring means to THAT WORD:  Christmas...and yes it is coming.  Well, not tomorrow, but I have been busy getting everything prepped for this holiday season...including some great deals!

Based on the emails I have been receiving, A LOT of you have taken advantage of having your family together to get your holiday card photos taken!  HATS OFF TO YOU!

I wanted to let everyone know that we will again be having a double your order for FREE sale on Holiday cards for those of you that order early...same goes for other items, so stay tuned to our Facebook page and make sure you can see us in your feed.

I am loving some of our new designs, and this one is perfect combination of classic and chic!

Wishing You A Sparkling 4th!

Happy 4th of July!   Baby C woke up the entire house this morning at 6am screaming "I am ready for the fireworks!"  Before we could say anything Mini K informed him, in her very grown up 7 1/2 year old voice, you wouldn't have this day if it wasn't for General Washington!  THANK YOU PBS FOR LIBERTY'S KIDS!

As a country we are one year older today, but there is something about driving by Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day and the 4th of July that really make me stop (not in the middle of the road) and think about all of the men and women, and their families, that we will never meet, that put their lives on the line and chose a career to protect our way of life.  It is truly humbling.  I pray they have peace today and can relax and enjoy the day, and the fireworks, with their families!  For those of you working today, THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU DO!

I also want to say thank you for supporting my independent small business!   Until Sunday all items in my ETSY store are 20% off with code:  SPARKLER.  SO if you have had your eye on our engraved sunglasses now is the time to purchase!

Enjoy the long weekend with your loved ones and friends!

Monday Mayhem

I wanted to pop in because I feel bad for not posting, but today has turned a little crazy!  So here is our summer thus far:

1.  Mini K has gone and returned from summer camp and LOVED every moment of her week away from us!  (We received 1 letter which stated:  this place is awesome, i have no time)

2.  Swim Team is a full time job

3.  We celebrated her half birthday party this past weekend and a great time was had by all...a complete post is coming

4.  Tonight we are packing up camp care packages for her 8th grade buddy, 2 family friends and her pen pal Miss M

5.  I have shipped out over 100 pairs of monogrammed sunglasses in the last 96 hours!  Stay tuned to our Facebook page as we think we might need to scare the rain away with a Thunder SALE on sunnies!

6.  Next week I will be in D.C., CA, TX, PA and back home...I am tired and I haven't boarded a plane yet!  I am already making lists of what to pack!

7.  I am still in LOVE with my Dry Bar hair dryer

8.  I am disappointed with the Nordstroms half-yearly sale, of course a half price Celine bag was probably too much to hope for right???

10.  Right now I will DOUBLE your order on flat or folded notes for FREE.  You can see all of the designs HERE.

11.  I am patiently (or attempting to be patient) the delivery of my newly lacquered quest room furniture this week.

12.  It is supposed to rain ALL week...I think this alone deserves a pick me up right?

13.  I am trying one of those home spa services this Wednesday...a manicure and pedicure at home with my DVR sounds like heaven right now.  Throw in a cold glass of white wine and I might not ever get up.

14.  I did 25 burpees today, followed by my Crossfit workout, followed by Ab Mat sit ups and now I am wondering if movement is necessary tomorrow.

15.  I have 2 kiddos begging to watch Ninja Warrior so off I go!
