Help me raise money for Kerrington's Heart!!

Shew, where has the time gone?  I have had the best intentions of getting on here and updating everyone on what's going on with me, and what's new, and just have not found the time.  I promise, it is something that I am going to do very soon, because I want to document these changes that have been going on. But that's not going to happen today, instead you will get a very short version:

So, I found out that I have an auto-immune disease of my spine, and I decided the best way to fight it, was to get healthy and start exercising and eating right.  In doing that, I have started running some, and this Saturday, June 14th, I will be running in the Superhero 5K at Keeneland in Lexington.  The race it to benefit the organization Kerrington's Heart.  See below for an excerpt from the Kerrington's Heart website about who they are and what they do.  If you are interested in donating to my fundraiser for Kerrington's Heart, please click here!  Any donation, large or small is greatly appreciated!!!
  • Kerrington’s Heart is a 501(c)(3) organization that provides a wide variety of support to children affected by heart disease and their families.  We strive to assist patients and families through each step in their journey of dealing with Congenital Heart Defects (CHD).  We offer comfort packages, Certificates of Bravery, educational support and financial assistance to families in need of meals, fuel and lodging.  We also offer a variety of craft activities and hospital room decorations to further encourage the children during their stay at the hospital.
  • Our “Heart to Heart” mom’s meetings are offered quarterly and provide an outlet for CHD mothers to connect with each other. 
  • By financially supporting the Children’s Heart Foundation, we participate in work to fund the most promising research to advance the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of CHD. 
  • We are a proud sponsor of the Beads of Courage program at the Kentucky Children’s Hospital and Congenital Heart Clinic. This program enables children to tell their story using colorful beads as meaningful symbols of courage that commemorate milestones they have achieved along their unique treatment path.

Quick update and arm candy Bling creations!

Long time no see!  I've been a bit busy.  Since we've last spoke, we bought a house, settled into and started decoration said house, then added a new addition to our family...our first furbaby, a pug named Elvis...Elvis Presley Brown.  He is the most perfect addition to our happy home and we couldn't be happier!  He's also a big UK fan!!












Now that we are settled and getting ready to celebrate our one year anniversary, I've finally found some time to sit down and start making jewelry again.  So if there are any jewelry lovers looking for some arm candy to cheer on your favorite team, please email me at babygirlbrownoriginals@hotmail.com.  Here's some stuff I've been working on.  Bracelets $25, matching earrings $10, but if you buy them together it's $30.  I concentrate on making UK stuff, but have plenty of other colors for any other schools and/or NFL teams!





Y'all have a great week!!

Friends, I have been busy making jewelry.  I made myself a bracelet, I made my bestie a bracelet for her birthday.  I SOLD a bracelet...whoa, so excited for first sell!!! 

Then I bought more stuff for more bracelets, and so far I've made 7 more!  Two of those bracelets are, as we speak, on their way to a blogger in Kentucky!  One for her, and one for her to do what she wishes, so maybe watch out for a giveaway!

At this moment, I have three bracelets ready for sale, and I can have them to anyone in the Lexington area (Lex, Richmond, Winchester area), in time for the BIG DANCE on Saturday, so please take a look below, and see if anything might interest ya!

The first of three shopping trips!

All of my KY bracelets have a cat paw on them!!

As are these.  I don't have any of these to make at this point, but I am expecting my bead shipment next week sometime, so if you like the big blue discs, just email me and I'll let you know when they are available.  Personally, they are my fave!

Y'all, I'm making jewlery tonight...and it's probably gonna be UK Blue!

Friends...I'm back! 

So sorry for the abandonment, but I've been a very busy girl, and last week, my body turned on me, and decided not only would I be busy, but I'd be sicker than a dog...for FIVE days...ugh

But I am all better now, back at work, and feeling like I've got energy again, so tonight, I shall be making some jewelry!

Ever since I made the bracelet below for one of my Bestie's in my wedding, I've been dying to make one for myself for tournament time!  Welp, considering UK plays on Thursday, I best be getting my "bitty", (thank you Kentucky Priss for the new word...lol), in gear!

if anyone is interested in purchasing one of these foyo self, please let me know!
Of course, I'll be making the earrings to match, and it may be with different blue beads, cause I'm here to tell ya, I've been on a mission for beautiful blue beads lately, and friends, my efforts did not disappoint!  I've got KY blue beads out the wazoo, that hardest part is going to be trying to decide which one I want!

So, if I'm feeling especially energized tonight, I may just make a couple sets, and actually start my jewlery shop/hobby!

Hope everyone is having a great and blessed day!



Looking for #8 in 2012!!!

This is what happens when the hubs is working.....

So, the hubs got the pleasure of working a 48 hour shift this week....booooooo

So, this about sums up what I've been doing....I tell y'all, I'm full of excitement

3 loads of laundry

took a stab at homemade cheeseburger helper

I decided that I should be a sweet wife and get rid of the tasty and tempting A&W rootbeer that was in the fridge from our lazy New Years Day...the hubs is back on the healthy train :)  Go Hubs!

I watched lots of this

And let me just say...Mr. Stefan is being quite the punk....I have always been team Stefan, but he is really taking this too far, and Damon is starting to win me over.  I've always liked them both, but Elena is supposed to be with Stefan, but I must say I loved it tonight when Damon did this....

And in between catching up on my TVD DVR's, I happened upon an episode of Fox's "Mobbed"  I haven't seen any of the other episodes, but last nights insanely sweet, and totally risky plan, had me on the edge of my seat...holy cow boys and girls!!!



And tonight has consisted of self portraits of my superb style...via instagram

Why yes, that is a UK snuggie, I have two, don't be jealous...And the second is my obvious knack for fashion, that would be brown leggings, a lavender tank, with some UK blue...HOTT...lol

Oh, and lastly, how cool is this...one of my BFF's wore her Chrismas Present to work yesterday...Showin' off some Babygirl Brown Originals!!!!


Sorry, for the poor picture quality...I was just so excited to see my stuff being worn!  Collegiate bracelets and earrings coming soon! 

So, the moral of this story is, I'm very ready for my sweetie to come home.  I'm used to 24 hours, but this 48 stuff is for the birds...and I gotta do it again next week :(

happy Happy Birthday to my Momma!!!

So, it's my momma's birthday today! and I've got a sweet story..

We normally go out to eat for the Moms birthday every year, but this year, my hottie hubby is at work...for 48 hours :(

So Dad calls and says, "your mom would like to wait and eat until Friday so Tony can be there too".
HMmph, guess I, alone, won't do anymore...
and i'm totally kidding by the way...kinda...lol

So I text that hottie husband of mine and let him know that plans have been made for dinner on Friday, which he was cool with, so then I added this...
How flippin' sweet is that husband of mine!  Not to mention smooth ;)
Yea, yea, I know...kinda makes you wanna puke in YOUR mouth, but it makes me swoon
