Hello, Fantabulous Friends and welcome to the first September It’s Fantabulous chit chat post!  I hope you are having an amazing weekend.  I know that I have been really busy working on my blog and my new project that I will share with you below.    September is turning out to be a great month as we explore and talk about self-care and why it is so important to practice in our daily lives.  If you missed my first post on self-care you can read it here.  I would love to hear what you think and if you have self-care practices you would like to share.

Self-care – I am so excited to be learning so much about self-care activities that I can do to improve my physical and mental health.  One thing I am finding useful is this book An Invitation to Self-Care: Why Learning to Nurture Yourself Is the Key to the Life You’ve Always Wanted.  7 Principles for Abundant Living.  I have just started it, but I am learning a lot.  If you are interested in learning more about self-care, I would recommend this book.

Hand Stamped Jewelry – Today I am introducing you to my new adventure.  I have recently begun hand stamping jewelry and I am loving it.  I currently am working on getting everything set up so that I can sell my pieces on my blog and I have set up a small Etsy store.   Below is a sneak peek of one of the pieces I have created for dog lovers.  I would love to hear what you think of it.  I am also working on simple monogram pieces that my daughters love.  If you are interested in either, please check out my Etsy shop here.  Check back often as we will be adding additional pieces and designs.  Did I mention that I am really loving this project?

I love my pup


Sale Alert – This week I want to tell you about a 50% off everything sale at  I love a lot of their casual pieces such as this embroidered shirt.  The code to get 50% off is GIMME50 and can be entered at checkout.   I will be right back as I am off to order this shirt.

What’s for Dinner? – I wouldn’t necessarily call this dinner, but I recently made it for our first tailgate last weekend at the Iowa Hawkeye football season opener.  We brought this Cowboy Caviar and it was delicious and I definitely will be making it again for future tailgates.

What am I reading? –  I just recently finished the book Harvest A Novel by Jim Crace.   This was a slow moving book but it had enough action to keep me interested.   If you like to read fast paced books this may not be the book for you, but if you enjoy historical fiction then this would be right up your alley.  For more information, you can click the book link above to read the synopsis.

I believe that is a wrap for this week, it was pretty short and sweet.  I would love to hear what is going on in your world.  Do you have any new projects or wins for the week?  Feel free to share them in the comments below.
