I just hopped over to her site and saw this:

"Place an order now through Monday, May 31st and receive 25% off your entire order!"

Awesome, right?

There's more...

The Free Shipping doesn't apply to us, but I love it that she's doing this for those that have so graciously served our country.

So if you've been waiting for the perfect time to buy a few custom vinyl wall decals for your home, then you definitely need to take advantage of this Memorial Day sale!

Which reminds me...

I've been wanting to add something above the doorway of our dining room-turned-playroom-turned-bedroom. It's the perfect spot and I know just what it should say.

Time to talk to Eileen and work out the details!

Happy Weekend


Happy Browsing!

Winner Of The Lisa Leonard Giveaway...

The winner of the

$75.00 Gift Certificate

to spend at

Lisa Leonard Designs


from the blog

Classy & Fabulous!

( I had to laugh when her number came up on! I have no preconceived ideas about who should be the winner - either does! I'm quite fond of all of you. It's just kinda funny that it ended up being a Karla...and with a "K"! I know, it seems silly, but she'll understand!)

Karla, send me your contact info and I will get you set up with Lisa!


Thanks to everyone for playing along.

It was a great turn out, so maybe we can convince Lisa to do this again with us in the future!

Last Chance!

Just a quick reminder that tomorrow is the last day that you can enter for your chance to win a

$75.00 Gift Certificate

to spend on a gorgeous Lisa Leonard design...

If you haven't taken advantage of all 4 chances to win, then Click Here to read all of the details and place your entries!


I have spent the day with three of these:

And many cans of this:

The entryway is getting a little makeover.

Fingers crossed that it turns out how I am envisioning it!

Luckily, Ellison is playing her heart out with the twins (her best friends) which means that I can get away with doing a project like this in the middle of the day.

I am convinced that there is nothing cuter than little girls just being little girls! Between playing dress up, dancing and singing, and pretending that they are shopping, being mommies, and taking care of their babies...they are quite busy little ladies! I can't help but smile listening to all of their giggles!

Here's hoping your day has been as enjoyable as ours!

A Giveaway - Lisa Leonard Designs...

***This Giveaway Is Now Closed***

Well, Hello!

It's been a while since I've been here.

Getting back to reality with Will flying again has been a big transition for our family. But we're hanging in there and getting back into our old routines. Which for me, means a return to blogging!

So as a "Thank You" to all of you for sticking around while things got back to normal around here, I have a giveaway for you.

It comes courtesy of Lisa Leonard Designs and I was *giddy* when she contacted me asking if I would be interested in doing this with her.

One of the perks...I got to choose a necklace of my own, and let me tell you, making a decision on which one was the one was no easy task. Ultimately, I went with the...

Family Tree Necklace

...and I love it!

I've worn it every day for the past week and it has rapidly become my favorite necklace! It's big enough to make a statement, but light enough that it can be worn with almost anything - dressed up or dressed down, it works! I think the tree is adorable and I love having our names around my neck.

So what was making my decision so hard?

This one:

It is the Captured Heart Necklace and I think the gold background with the stacked silver hearts is just beautiful. I'm certain I would have been equally happy had this been the one that I had chose. But for now, it is sitting on my wish list.

A few other pieces of inspired jewelry that you will find in Lisa's store are...

the Together Necklace

What a sweet gift for all of the soon-to-be-wed couples!

Lisa also writes a blog. I dare you not to get lost in her photography...

Want to know how to enter and what you are playing for?

Lisa has generously offered to give one of you a

Gift Certificate to her store



Nice, right?

(If I could win, I'd be clicking "add to cart" on that Captured Heart Necklace as fast as I could!)
