Sponsor Spotlight + Giveaway

Happy Monday lovelies!

I hope you all had a relaxing weekend. I had an equal part relaxing and productive weekend, and God really showed himself and His heart to me on Saturday, which I can't wait to tell you about this week. I also hosted a Christmas party for the students in my life group at Renewal, the youth ministry I am a part of. I, with three other amazing women, lead a group of twelfth grade girls who I just adore. We had dinner together and decorated Christmas cookies.

Today, I just want to introduce you to some of  my sweetest friends. These ladies have all chose to hang out on my sidebar and I've just grown to love each of them so much! Each one of these ladies are fun, charming, adorable, and hilarious. I am honored to call them all friends!


Hi I'm Amber and this dude's my husband, Jason. You can catch us over at Mr. Thomas and Me where we talk all things life -fun, food, faith, and cocktails! We're enjoying life as a young-married couple sans kids -but with a wildly spoiled pup, Hazel- learning what it looks like to live out marriage in the every day. Amber's the voice you'll find on the blog (other than when Hazel takes over) while Jason provides the pretty face that keeps people coming back time and again. Currently we’re settling in to the Christmas season with lots of flannel pajamas, cups of tea, and a new series, 12 Days of Nativity, that documents our holiday traditions and festive moments throughout the month of December.

I  was born in texas, raised in europe for 15 years (germany and spain) and now back on good ol' texas soil these for the past 7 years. Theres too many details to fill in the blanks on the above sentence... but this is just a 'little bit' about me. Currently i am enjoying the last year in my 20s... taking all of the advice i can get on things i need to do before turning 30!

A few fun, random facts:i am a barefoot, Jesus loving, power yogini and all things junk/garage/estate-sale kinda gal!while i live in the city, my boyfriend is a cattle rancher in oklahoma, think 'pioneer woman style'... yeah, its that rural!


Hey girl heyyyy! I'm Ashten and I HAVE A LOT TO SAY. To spare most people the pain of having to listen to me, I started a blog called alwaysashten. There, I blog about my life: the good, the bad and the sarcastic. I believe "classy, sassy and little bit smart-assy" is not just a phrase, but a way of life and I live it well. Come visit me. I will keep you entertained with my awkwardness and my sass. My dog is also really cute.

Hey Happy Is A Choice readers! I'm so excited to be hanging out on the sidebar this month because Brittany is definitely one of my favorite bloggers! I'm Hannah and I blog over at Hannah, Here! I live in the great state of Colorado, in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. I can't think of anywhere else I'd rather live! I blog about my life as a twenty something, posting about anything from fashion to baking. I'm a total movie buff and on a quest to watch every movie that's ever been nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards! (#nerdalert) I'm a big fan of the Colorado Buffaloes and Pure Barre. I walk a lot and I foster kittens for the local humane society. Right now, I have four: Sherlock, Holmes, Watson, and Moriarty. Come on over to Hannah, Here! and say hello; I love to meet new bloggers (and blog readers)!


Hi all! I am Margaret and I blog over at Life After Athens. I'm a country girl who traveled the world for a year before falling in love with Athens, Ohio while attending Ohio University (Bobcat for life). Needless to say, life after college was a little rough. I'm a newly(ish)wed living in the wonderful city of Cleveland-and yes, I really do think it's wonderful! My husband and I first met while playing beer pong in college. We made it official one night over a bottle of Goldschlager and almost 7 years later, here sea are-oh the romance! I'm a social butterfly who is happiest when surrounded by my friends and family (epecially my two adorable nieces). Add a bottle of wine or a good beer, a campfire, good music, or a Harry Potter movie, and you've found my happy place.

Life is crazy, so I write! When I'm not spending time chasing two year olds I'm shopping for healthy foods, playing kickball with my crazy and amazing friends or cuddling up with my boyfriend watching trashy tv. Do it yourself projects are my therapy of choice, decorating is a hobby and writing is my passion. I love being able to share my life experiences with the world. 


Hey y’all, I’m Sara & I blog over at Pearls & Curls. I’m a 23 yr old college student living in the great city of Atlanta. When I’m not in the classroom or working as a nanny, you can find me at the mall, re-reading my favorite books, pretending to be a photographer, or at a sports bar watching the game with a drink in hand. I’m an avid sports fan- member of the Big Blue Nation and supporter of the USWNT/NWSL. I also enjoy stand-up comedy, Netflix marathons, and appointments at the DryBar.Pearls & Curls my platform to talk about the random happenings in my life, among other things. I hope you decide to stop on by, I’d love to meet you!
