Currently at Vintage Gwen


Happy Thursday!!

Thought I'd try a new kind of post here on the blog!
It's a 'Currently' post about a few things you are currently doing or loving and sounded like fun! Some bloggers do this weekly but I think I'll do monthly. I would love to here your 'currently's' so make sure and share!

Currently.......
Reading: One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp
Great book on how important being thankful is! 

Watching:  not a lot.  We have one TV, yes you read that right one and so if it's not a kid program then I let hubby man the control. I am looking forward to Downton Abby though!!

Listening:  Bethel's You Make Me Brave album! So, so good! Did you know that you can listen to whole albums on You Tube? You can even make your own playlists! It's what I do while I'm doing my church secretary thang!
(The title song is one of my favs!)


Making:  table signs in PicMonkey for my brother's wedding reception on Saturday!

Feeling: on the mend after having a nasty cold earlier this week.  And hopeful for our Ladies Retreat in a week!

Planning:  brother's wedding reception, Ladies Retreat, a bridal shower later in September. Oh you know the usual!

Loving:  the recent Denver memories and fun I made with my sister, friends and a special young woman who finally had her turn at getting married. Best trip ever!!


There! That made me happy!

Well today is the day! Lil' Hunkie starts Pre-K!!
This will be a whole new adventure for our family of 3! There'll be days that I will have my hubby all to myself due to his crazy work schedule! On the bright side, perhaps we'll go on more dates! We'll see!
Or maybe I'll just cry everyday because my baby is at school!

{Freebie} Back To School Printable


Can you believe it's Back to School time? I'm joining the ranks this year!! Lil' Hunkie is starting PreK next Wednesday!! I'm so excited and so nervous for him at the same time! 
What an adventure we're about to have!!

Of course I had to make a fun printable for this time of year!


(Gold and blue are our school colors!!)

I made this printable in PicMonkey. Surely you're not surprised! And I found that cute school house box at Design Mom via Pinterest.  This one is just paper but I printed a few on card stock to fill for teachers. There is also a house that I plan on incorporating into my brother's wedding reception and into a bridal shower!!


Just right click and save!




*This printable is for personal use only.

Hope your Back to School start was or will be a smooth one!
Happy Thursday!

Vintage Gwen Chapel-Saturday Song

Well here I am again with a song that I just love so much I think you should here it too!
I may be a little late to the Rend Collective train but better late than never!
Sometimes when I'm working I'll get on You Tube and find whole albums to listen too. Well I found a Rend Collective playlist and when I heard "Immeasurably More" I literally stopped working and just listened. 
And fell in love!
Here, you fall in love too....



....and your welcome!!

Ps.  While you are enjoying this today I am actually in Denver for a wedding!
Woohoo! Check out my Instagram for the fun!

Happy Weekend lovelies!

Chic Couture-Beauty Favorites

If you follow me on Instagram then you know that I do a photo a day challenge.
A recent prompt was 'I wore this" and I posted my beauty products for the day.  And as I did so I realized I wear these products often and it's safe to say they are favorites right now!


The prettiest neutrals ever!

This is the original scent but I love them all!

Extremely affordable, lovely neutrally-pinky shade! Found at Walgreens or probably what ever is your local drugstore!

I bought this and a lipstick in the same shade a year ago! Just finished off the lipstick and as you can see have used half the gloss.  I find when I use it with the Jordana balm it's very similar to when I paired it with the Mac lipstick! One of the best lipglosses I've ever had.

Would love to hear what your favorites are!

Happy Friday lovelies!
