A jam packed Monday back!

How was your Holiday?! 
I hope it was everything you were hoping for :) 
Pretty sure it's safe to say I missed you guys. 

I had a lovely time back in Oklahoma for the Holiday weekend! I got to spend time with lots of family/friends, eat WAAAAY too much, caught up on 'some' sleep and reading, and participated in my 1st  Black Friday extravaganza!  
 {Online of course. I prefer NOT to be spit on, trampled, pushed, shoved, clawed, elbowed, kicked, bitten, stabbed... yeah, Mr. Mac and I  found sales just fine, thank you!}.
Speaking of Black Friday, 
I GOT MY CAMERA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
((does ridiculous victory dance))
You may remember me mentioning it here, or even posting about it here... Well, thanks to Black Friday sales and grandparents+parents that will agree to give you your Christmas money in advance, I was able to purchase my new baby. Friends, meet Carrigan the Canon. 
Yes, I named her. 

Isn't she beautiful?! 
You can tell I'm one proud momma. 

Along the lines of Black Friday, sales, shopping and basically all the things that get my bank account in trouble, I thought I would pass along Forbes Cyber Monday's best sales list! 

NOW! On to bigger news:
{I told you this was a jam packed Monday, you had a warning!}
Do you notice anything different about Love Never Fails? Like maybe a new banner or button perhaps?! Well, thanks to this AMAZING, TALENTED, PATIENT, WONDERFUL lady... I now have a cute banner that I not only love but feel fits into my little bloggy pretty perfectly! No, I'm not trying to toot my own horn here guys... I'm tooting Lindsay's! Ha. I have been hurting for a good banner for soooooo long friends. It was getting ridiculous.

((And if your nodding your head right now in agreement thinking, 
I am totally OK with that.))
And now thanks Lindsay, from Scenic Glory... I have one. She really is wonderful guys. She was always readily available and so patient as I asked her too many times to tweek things just a bit... 
I pulled the,  
"well I love this, but..." 
 or the  
"I like it but, could we maybe try this instead?" 

 And everytime she just said, 
"No problem! I want you to love it!"

If you are considering a new banner or maybe a button, I HIGHLY suggest you check her out. Or just check her out period! Her blog is literally amazing, as you can imagine. Her positivity and creativity shine through and through. So go make your day a little brighter and drop Lindsay a hello :) You'll be glad you did! 

Could she be any prettier? I don't think so. 
Go play at Scenic Glory!

Thank you Lindsay, Carrigan, and readers for being absolutely wonderful!
Happy Monday friends.
