American Sniper

This past weekend I went and saw American Sniper WOW. It was a very powerful and moving movie, that made me cry in sadness for his wife's loss and for all of the soldiers over seas and here fighting for us right now.  It really made me begin to realize all that all if those people are selflessly doing for others.  Most movies have a boring part, but this movie just kept grabbing my attention! I would give this...


So, I recommend going to see it ASAP!

OPI "love is hot and coal" - it's a grayish plum color, it's dark but not black a perfect winter color.

My favorite candle this month is this Yankee Candle "Summer Scoop" I also got this cute owl candle holder from Yankee Candle.

A great Home Goods find!

In the Home Goods clearance I found this beautiful rustic tall drawer set on sale - $69.99, a GREAT deal, it looks perfect in my bedroom as it is white and has four grayish drawers!
