Santa Came In February!


#1 I managed to get off to be there for Will's promotion ceremony.
#2 I'm about to show you ;)

You may not remember, but I had this on my Christmas list:


Luckily, my girl Tiffany knew how badly I wanted one, so she sent me one to review for y'all!
Yep, homegirl is my hero right now.

I was able to choose a large or small locket, gold/silver/rose gold, the type of chain I desired, and lots of fun charms to personalize my locket. Every aspect is just as I dreamed...

I chose:
An owl, my job
A camera, my love of photography
A suitcase, my love of travel
The aqua accent stone, my favorite color
The Peridot heart, my daddy's birth stone
The Garnet heart, Will's birth stone
And the anchor, also for Will because he is the anchor for my soul
Cheesy alert!

A few really fun things about Origami Owl:
*The company was started by a 14 year old girl in 2010!
*Everything is sold a la cart so that every locket is completely personalized and unique
*Whether you want to wear one charm or all of them on any given day, you can easily switch the charms out, much like a Pandora bracelet. Only fancier. 

Tell me you don't want one:

OBSESSED.

Now go check out Tiffany on Origami Owl. She is donating 20% of all orders in February and March to the Susan G. Komen fund, and you can check out her page for the three day Breast cancer Walk here. I know that when I need a "reason" to buy fun goodies like this, a charity contribution will always win me over! Don't forget Mother's Day is right around the corner...Seems like the perfect way to show mom that you love her!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You will probably see some pics pop up on Twitter and Instagram from my girlfriends Birthday tonight AND the ceremony tomorrow, in case you are as excited as I am. Well...I'm actually not excited about going out on a week night {Did I just say that?}, but I'll have a good time anyways. We always do!

It's so pretty! I love the idea behind Pandora bracelets, but I just wouldn't wear something like that (at least not now). However, I'd totally wear it as a necklace. I love it!
