    Best Year Ever

    Does anyone remember the show on Vh1 called "Best Week Ever"? It may still be on.. I quit watching now that Flavor of Love isn't on anymore. Don't judge.  Anyway, all week I can't help but hear that crazy guy scream, "Emily Maynard is having the BEST YEAR EVER!" over and over in my head. Crazy? Absolutely. True? Every bit. Seriously, we're only a week into 2014 and it has already been one of my best yet! More on that on another day ;)

    For starters, I was at my favorite nail salon in Charlotte, Polished, and saw the cutest girl so of course, I had to check out her outfit without making it totally obvious. Well, all that went out the window when I saw she was wearing the Ashley ring from MY JEWELRY LINE! I think I may have creeped her out a little bit because I asked her if I could get a picture with her, but I've been waiting on this day ever since the line launched!

    How has your 2014 been going? Goodness knows I have a long list of resolutions, but at the top of my list is being grateful for the little things. Like a girl at the nail salon. (*Thank you, Lauren, for making my day!)  What are yours?

    BTW, I got these boots for Christmas and haven't taken them off since! Thought you all would like them too, especially since they're on sale!

    • Emily I'm so happy you're having a great year so far! You look absolutely stunning. I just had a question for you? I got so much of your jewelry for Christmas that I got two Ellie necklaces! So of course I want to return one and get something new! Is that possible? I wasn't sure how that worked? Sorry if that sounds like a dumb question haha! Best of luck with your resolutions :) xoxo

    • Emily:
      Thank you for having included me in your life. I wish you nothing but the best...  

    • I am soooo happy for you! AND this is my first time ever commenting on a blog. I know it seems crazy to care for someone I've never met. But, you have been on my heart since I first "met/saw" you on tv. My heart ached for you and what you have had to endure. The fruits of the Spirit flow out of you. You have grown in strength and dignity. And your beauty is even more radiant. God has truly blessed you. And in seeing your happiness, it's a blessing for me. Congratulations!  

    • Wow what a great way to start 2014! I just read about your engagement. So happy for you and Ricki. I wish nothing but the best for you.



    • Emily,just wondering where your friends outfit is from as well :)  

    • Emily, I am so happy for you. This is my first time ever commenting on a blog. But I just had to share my joy for you. I know it's crazy to care for someone I've never met. But you have been on my heart for a while. I've prayed for you, and I've ached for the pain you've had to endure. You have grown in strength and dignity, and are always full of grace. God is truly blessing you. And seeing your joy is a blessing to me. I have three small boys, and I hope and pray they can find a sweet girl like you one day.  

    • Hi Emily,
      The boots in your picture look like a rusty red color but the ones on the Bloomingdales link you attached are tan? I know the boots come in other colors on other websites. Do you mind telling me which color are the ones you are wearing? I have that exact coat as well. :) Thanks in advance for your help.

      Congrats on your engagement Emily. Wishing you all the best! Beautiful news.  

    • OMG! Hi Emily. This is Pumkin from Flavor of Love. I love your new website and your style is absolutely amazing! I had no idea you were a fan of the show! I am a big fan of yours too;)  

    • I came across a jacket on forever21.com that is almost exactly like this one for $37.80, if anyone is interested ;)... http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?BR=f21&Category=outerwear_coats-and-jackets&ProductID=2000090696&VariantID=
