A Giveaway!

UPDATE:

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

I did a random number thing a ma jig on the computer. I didn't know how to post it on my blog, so I took a picture! It picked the 23rd commenter.

AKK

By her email I think her name is Anne. I will email you right now to get your address!

Congratulations!

And thanks everyone for entering. I will do it again!





My 2 year blogiversary was last week! I started this blog just to document our lives. I am not a scrapbooker or journaler, so this worked for me. It has also turned out to be a place to "meet" some great people. You all are such encouragers and really super sweet.




So if you are a follower of this blog, leave a comment and enter to win this necklace!




I love these necklaces. A lady in Dallas makes them and they are all so unique. I am on my way to the World Trade Center in Dallas to pick up some more to sell at Golightly's. I am going to get a few extra things to sell on the blog as well since you all don't live in the area.

Anyway, thanks for being apart of my blog life. You make it fun!


Follow my blog, Leave a comment; it could be about nothing,or maybe you can give me advice on how to get a baby to sleep through the night, I could also use some zit cream advice unfortunately, or just say hi!



I will pick a winner Tuesday night!



Good luck!

Dina! I'm so glad you decided to start a blog 2 years ago because I love following it! I've been a follower for about a year (I found you through Kelly's Korner). I always love seeing what you do - your taste makes me smile, and Miss Katie is just too cute! Happy Blogiversary!

For Zit cream, I use pro active, I love it and it works GREAT! .. If I am not home and one comes out I like Ty also use toothpaste.

Casey B said...

I love your blog, & your precious new baby girl. Unfortunaltely, I have no good advice on getting her to sleep through the night. My baby was 10 months old until he slept all night through : ( I was miserable, but now look back & realize that was precious precious time between him & I...Thank you for your blog, I enjoy it!!

Mommyto3 said...

Dina,

I just started following your blog after seeing you on Kelly's Korner. I LOVE your style and watching you re-do your home. I live here in Keller and love shopping at Golightly's. I think the necklace is super cute and it would be great to win it!
Thanks so much for the giveaway.

As far as sleeping babies, the book Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Baby changed my life. It helped me soooo much with getting my boys to be great sleepers. Good Luck! :)

Stacey said...

Dina I am so glad that you started this blog! I love reading it and you help me with ideas on decorating my house! And you have a super cute baby girl! I can't wait to see the new house decorated for the upcoming holidays!

LaTosha said...

awww your Katie bug is just too cute :)

Jennifer said...

I love your blog and am so glad I came across it! As far as the baby sleeping through the night, my only advice is cry it out. I know it is awful, but I had to do it wiht mine and after only a night or 2 we were a much happier (and more alert) household!

The Veals said...

Love the necklace! Love your style and love that your husband lets you style the house the way YOU want to! I know how those stubborn fireman are, I married to one too!

D said...

Cute necklace! Well, since I'm 37 weeks pregnant with my first child at the moment I don't have any great words of wisdom on getting babies to sleep through the night. So, I'll just say hi and good luck!

Stephanie said...

Tonja said...

Happy Blogiversary!!!

I know this may not be the best, but honestly I started putting cereal inhis bottle and he slept a lot better! And on the zit thing... I use clinique and it works really well. I like it better than anything I have tried bc it does not dry my skin out like the others.

Our Girls said...

Love the necklace! it's beautiful!
I'm working on my 1 year old to sleep thru the night! It's all new to me, since this baby was a beautiful surprise after my last child that is now 14 years old :)

Your home is beautiful ! I love clicking over and seeing what you are doing w/the new place. We are in the process of moving and I will definitely be borrowing some ideas :).

I would love to be entered. My boys weren't great sleepers and I have acne now at 33 when I never did before. Ugh. Sorry I couldn't help with that.

Dina! Love it! With my first baby, we followed the book "Baby Wise" to the "T"! He slept through the night at 8 weeks :) With my second baby, we followed the same book....She slept through the night at 6 weeks :) Other than that, I encourage rice in the bottle at night, Johnson and Johnson "Bed Time" soaps and lotions, and dim lights ;)))) Here's to her sleeping!

I have been stalking you for a while. In a good way because I love your style and so happy for you and the birth of your baby girl. I am now a follower even thought I have been reading your blog for probably a year.

Look at all your comments! You are famous:0)
I love the necklace and I love you too...I DON'T love that I haven't even met sweet Katie yet. I am coming over for sure on a Tues or Thurs when my big kids are in school.
And then I can pick up the necklace that I just won;)

Happy blogiversary!

I would love some suggestions on how to get a baby to sleep at night as well. As mine is still getting up twice or so. My daughter was an amazing sleeper from day one so this is all new for me!

Love the necklace!

Jill Saunders said...

Hi Dina,
I've been following your blog for awhile since I found you through Kelly's Korner. I have a lot in common with you (I met my husband in Jr. High and we dated for 12 years before getting married. We've been married for 7 years and don't have any kiddos yet - but we'd love to! My hubby is a state patrolman, so like Marcus, he's a first responder. And most importantly, like you, I love the Lord!) I check your blog daily to see pictures of Katie and your amazing home and decorating ideas! AND - I have the perfect outfit to wear with that lovel necklace :-)
