I'm Back!

Hi all! I'm back from market! I had so much fun, but I am oh so tired. My mom, sister, and I found so many cute things for the store, and we walked a million miles while doing it. In fact, my feet and legs are still sore. They are sore enough that I considered letting the sketchy massage man in the middle of the mall rub on me this afternoon, but then when I pictured the sketchy massage man with his hands on me I decided that my legs and feet didn't hurt that bad at all! :) Too bad it takes forever and costs so much to get a massage appointment at the spa.

Going to market always gives me a bad case of "the wants". Good thing there is very little you can purchase without making a huge order. However, I did order a new set of luggage from Murval. I was able to tack it on to the order my mom and sister made for their store. It is so cute. I can't wait for it to come in. I can't find a picture, but I promise to share a picture as soon as it comes in. The luggage is a blue and brown pattern, and it is made out of laminated canvas. It has the 360 degree wheels. I am so excited. I haven't had a new piece of luggage in years.

I also visited the apparel mart while I was there. I purchased a precious black and white swing jacket and if I were the sample size I would have come home with a beautiful lilac Nicole Miller dress. However, I am not sample size, and even at the wholesale price my pocket book is thankful that I am not the sample size.

Before I sign off, I want to thank Good Gals Inc. for giving me a few awards. She is just the sweetest! I love her blog, and I am so honored that she is my blog friend.

The New Year Award:

The Truly Beautiful Award:

It reads: You Are Truly Beautiful. Beautiful means so much more than just a pretty face! It also means that you are unique, and oh so full of grace! The things in you that go on much deeper than the softness of your skin. Are the things that make you beautiful, both outside and within!

Find the beautiful ladies that you follow.
Give them this award.
Hopefully it'll truly mean something to each and everyone of you.
Don't be shy to give it to the same person!
Don't forget to tell them!

I want to pass the beautiful award to all the blogs that I follow. Each blogger that I follow is so beautiful both inside and out. Every one of my blog friends are beautiful in their very own way. I am so blessed that the blog world has allowed me to "meet" so many amazing new friends. I am always so overwhelmed with how strong, open-hearted, honest, and talented all of you are!

Welcome back! I'm glad you had a fun and productive trip. I have one question though, what is "market"? It sounds like a place I would love.
