Oh my heavens. I love Harry Potter. I'd DEFINITELY get the Golden Snitch necklace. Holy Hannah. i might get it, actually. LOVE.

Annie Citrine said...

ALSO I love your blog because it makes me want to have *MAGICAL* moments every day ever just like you.

and that is very cheesy. But completely legitimate, don't you think?

*I do*

:)

Annie Citrine said...

And tonight I am helping my crazy Halloween obsessed uncle with his haunted house. I did it last night too and it was TONS of fun.. so I don't know if it really counts as helping someone else because I'd pretty much pay to do this. HA!

...but I'm counting it. Because I want that unicorn!

Can I get an extra entry because I dressed up as a unicorn for Halloween? :)

1. i love the secret keeper necklaces. tooo too cute, also the unicorn necklace is far too attractive. love love love.
2. I love your blog because I go to BYU-Idaho too! And I love that you freeze as well. because winters here are nightmares. And I totally stalked your archives and I love your post about the children you have visited in different countries. So touching.

4. I am in Utah this weekend visiting friends and today we are going back to the Burg! It's a full car and guess who is sitting in the middle? It's going to be awesome.

Melissa said...

1. Fairy tale throne necklace is the bomb. As is the secret keeper. Dude I want.
2. I love your Saturday Fashion posts.
3. Tweet Tweet
4. I let my bestie vent about how she doesnt think her future husband, who's in the same professional school as me, is busy like he says - even though she has no idea how insanely busy our school is and that she doesnt get it at all. But she didnt need a voice of reason. She needed an ear of understanding.

Lindsey said...

1. My very favorite thing in the Etsy shop is the Woodland Bird Ring. Oh my gosh.
2. I just started following! Even though I've been reading your blog for a few months now.
3. I tweeted!
4. I enthusiastically said yes to giving a talk on unconditional love on Sunday, November 21st. The bishopic member was so happy that I didn't sigh or worry or complain!

Kate Giovinco Photography said...

1. I love the pink rose necklace. So classic and elegant.

2. I follow your blog, have since you started. I read Nie and then Elizabeth, and just kept reading more and more people who are connected and found you through all of them.

4. I don't think I have done anything out of the ordinary nice for someone today, but I will. I usually am generally nice and do things for others. For example I always hold the door, pick up something someone dropped, etc. I guess I did do some nice things I picked up a friend's cell phone when she dropped it and gave another friend a few dollars to buy a candle she wanted. I will probably give some money to the people on the streets of New Orleans and buy someone a drink tonight when I am out.

Jamie said...

I shopped like mad and I think that other than loving most everything, the tea bag earrings and the coffee cup necklace are two of my favorites. Also the rose rings.

Yesterday I spend my birthday with my grandma's and didn't argue when one tried to get into a political debate with me? Please say that was nice LOL.

Allison said...

I'm a follower of your wonderful blog!

Allison said...

Tweet, tweet! http://twitter.com/#!/abiteofallison/status/29531179384

Allison said...

I don't know if this is nice enough for a unicorn (because unicorns can't hold scalpels) but I became head surgeon in my lab group (even though I'm not really made for cutting things) because the other girls at my table were too squeamish to de-skin a chicken.

Becky said...

You are my favorite part of your darling blog! How perfect that a unicorn charm is your first giveaway!

Samantha said...

1- I love the white rose ring the best. I love it because it shows personality but it is still gorgeous and won't look like a joke next to my wedding ring :-)
2- I am a follower. My favorite thing about your blog is that it makes me tear up every time I read it as it reminds me of instances from my own life. Nostalgia is my favorite thing.
3- consider it facebooked 4 times.
4- today I hugged some little children in primary and told them I loved the flowers in their hair. I also took some requests for reverence music as kidscame in to primary. And I told my mini would spend the day with her on Thursday (her dream come true :-))

Samantha said...

*mom I. Not mini!!

Asenath said...

1.) I (of course) love the unicorn necklace, but I also LOVE the secret key earrings. And the tea party rings. And Alice's clock necklace. (early Christmas for myself maybe?)

My nice act: I bought dinner for my friend on Friday because he had to work late, and I didn't want him to be hungry. :)

ashley in wonderland said...

Asenath, I must know. Did you read your cousin a story about unicorns and THEN happen upon my blog or happen upon my blog and then choose to read a story about unicorns? i laughed out loud when i read this comment. what story was it?
