The other day The Nester hosted one of her totally rockin' giveaway days. There were 27 different giveaways that were amazing. AND I WON ONE!!!!

I won a BEAUTIFUL apron made by Janet at The Empty Nest! Janet, who is just sweet as honey, makes her aprons using exquisite vintage and thrifted fabrics, trims and notions. She also has an awesome etsy shop full of her unique creations. Go check her out!

My apron is called Garden Party and boasts some beautiful embroidered hankies, lovely spring colors and gorgeous trims. Isn't she beautiful?
Doesn't her beauty just make just melt?
I believe she's gonna need a name! What shall I name her?
Thank you so much Janet! I can't wait to hold her in my hot little hands!

{totally random tuesday}

I saw on someones (totally can't remember who) blog this morning a random Tuesday thing and thought it would be rather fitting for me today as I've had nothing but random thoughts swirling around my brain the past few days....no weeks....let's make that months.

So, here goes:
*My throat is totally on fire today....hurts to swallow, talk, breathe......good times!

*The girls in my class at church totally crack me up! Some are super serious, some are ditsy, some are moody, some are so "pretty" they just can't help themselves. I love each and everyone of those girls! I'm sure it helps that they think I'm still in my 20's....god bless 'em!

*One of my favorite scenes from Friends was when Joey was eating all the jam. he had jam all over his face and Rachel rubbed his cheek and told him he was so pretty.

*I also loved when Joey talked about "it" being a moo point.....you know, it's like a cow's opinion. So stinkin' funny!

*I could quote Friends all day!

*My dog's been shut in the laundry room most of the day b/c he smells and I don't want to smell his funk.

*I've just recently started reading the Twilight series. I'm 200 pgs into new moon. Although I'm really enjoying them, I don't get the complete obsession some have with them. I don't get the whole "team Jacob vs team Edward" thing.

*I'm on "team Rich". Have you seen how hot he is?!

*I like to use "..." when I talk in real like....it makes me laugh.

*I'm also reading Beth Moore's new book So Long, Insecurity. It's VERY eye-opening. I'm beginning to think every woman I know should read it.

*I didn't know it was raining when my kids' school got out yesterday and they started to walk home in the rain. Then my sweet friend picked them up.....thanks Shana!!! I'm an awesome mom in case you were wondering.

*I wonder how long our Christmas lights are going to stay up.

*My heart is simply broken for sweet, little Layla Grace's parents, sisters and family. She's with Jesus now!

*I HATE what cancer does to families!
