winner! winner! we have a winner!

Thank you to everyone who entered my 1 year blogoversary FAVORITE THINGS giveaway! I truly have enjoyed being able to share with you my life and passions. I have met some great blogging buddies and have had the most wonderful support from my family and friends who encourage my addiction for blogging, so I can share all of the creativity and "stuff" that's bursting to come out!

But, I know you're really waiting for this part...we have a winner!!

I'm so excited to announce (and a little shocked...I promise I didn't rig it) that my IN REAL LIFE friend, Kim at Caldwell Cuties, is the winner!

She says in her comment that she left on my giveaway post...

Congrats on 1 year!! Has it really been that long. Wow.

I am going to guess you will send me a Baja Fresh meal:) Kidding. I think it will definately include Modge Podge and some note cards.

Have a great day in the sun!


Well, Kim, you don't have to e-mail me your address because I know where you live AND I get to save on shipping cool is that!? *wink*

When Kim receives her box full of fun stuff, she will post it on her blog and I will send you all that way so you can find out what exactly was inside MY FAVORITE THINGS goody box. I know you're all dying to know!!


Kim and I met almost 3 years ago at the Providence Hospital Mom's Group with our first little kiddos. They are about 6 weeks apart. However, it wasn't until our kiddos were both about 1 year old when we really started hanging out together more. We have so many things in common...especially our love for creativity! I like to claim that I got her hooked on scrapbooking. And, although, I liked making cards before, I think she has inspired me to do more within this last year because she's just so good at it!

Here's a pic of our "firstborn" at the Zoo, which I find a little ironic because we're actually headed to the Zoo again today together! Hopefully we can snap a cute shot of ALL four of the kids. Our second children were also only born 2 months apart (Austin is older than Elizabeth). Kim is now expecting her third...but I won't be joining that club with her this go 'round. She's all on her own! *wink*

Mikayla (15 months) & Kenneth (13 months)

And only 2 years later...

Mikayla (3 years) & Kenneth (34 months)

I wonder if in 2 more years we can get them to hold hands like this?

Kim, Thanks for being a great friend, support, encourager, and a short phone call (or e-mail) away! Looking forward to sharing more fun times together as our kids grow up!


And, lastly...

I was featured at Creative Parties & Showers for Mikayla's tea party birthday celebration with her little girlfriends. If you haven't yet, you must go check out this great party planning site where Shannon shows off parties and showers from all over blog land. You will definitely be inspired!

And keep scrolling down to see my water bottle tag tutorial!

That picture is beautiful! Love the tulips!

Congratulations Kim!

Shelly said...

Hello! I found your blog through Creative Parties & Showers. Great party! Makes me wish I had girls!

I have a question unrelated to the party, but inspired by your photos. What color is your bluish-grey wall painted? I just love it!

I am enjoying looking back through your blog!

I am bummed I didn't win, but congrats to Kim, and very cute pictures.

Kelli said...

Come over, I tagged you.

Tammy Williams said...

When I was reading my email from you last night, Jeremy was by my side and he saw the picture of Mikayla and Kenneth at the tulip farm. We both thought it was an awesome picture, especially with the construction (?) hat that Kenneth is wearing. It's amazing how time flies and how grown-up our kids are starting to look. Here's to another few more years of watching our kids grow-up together.

Rhonda said...

Congrats Kim!! Yeah for you!
Can't wait to see what you get!

Love the pic of both of your kids together...adorable!

Hope you have a terrific time at the zoo!

Congrats to Kim! I'm sorry I didn't make it over... every time I go to check blogs I have sreams and demands coming... I actually have screams and demands coming right now as I type... AHHHHH!!! I can't get away!

I'm looking forward to seeing what was in your favorite things box!

The tea party pictures are precious! I would love to know where you got the great cupcake stand and cake plate? They are so cute and dainty!

YIPPPPEEEE! I cannot believe I won. That is so exciting. I can hardly wait to find out what is in the box.

The pictures and memories brought tears to my eyes. It has been a fun 3 years. Looking forward to more!

Great time at the zoo. The pictures, I am sure, will be fun to see!
