Feature Yourself Friday {And a Giveaway!}

It’s May! It’s May!? Holy bologna April flew by. But, it’s FINALLY nice enough out that we can be outside planting flowers, and playing in the sun. I love it. Bring on the hot weather {so I can complain about it in June, of course.} But anyway, with May comes Mother’s Day.. You know, the day where us Mamas get all the lovin’ and hugs and kisses? Yeah, well how about some bling too? The people at Blue Nile sent me a little Mother’s Day gift the other day {squeal!!!} and better yet? They sent one for you too!


Seriously they’re gorgeous. Super shiny, sparkly, and dangly.


They’re pretty enough to be dressed up, or wear them with your t-shirt, cropped jeans, and flip flops like I did all day today. They took my blahhh outfit to fabulous, if you ask me.

People Magazine Special Oscar Double Issue and a WINNER WINNER!

Ahh– it’s finally out!


And, I must say, even though my favorite Jennifer wasn’t on the cover– they picked a great other Jen to grace the cover of such a special magazine. :) She’s such a beauty!

I took that sucker home, sat down and enjoyed some fountain mountain (ha-ha) and a FEW chocolate goodies and got to readin’


Of course, when I flipped to the inside “Winning Moments” and saw Miss Lawrence in her GORGEOUS gown? I was so excited for her, she seems like such a sweet girl.

Besides the gowns, the make up and hair?! Get out of here. Gorgeous. I took a couple styles and added them to my inspiration files for fancy hair events. What? You don’t go to fancy hair events? ;)

Overall it was a great read. A lot of things to drool over, and I’m not just talking about the gents in tuxes. Jewels, make up, hair, dresses it’s basically a girls dream.

Reese Witherspoon looked flawless as always, and Amanda Seyfried? Gorgeous. Stunning!

I was also a big fan of the Oscar Memories article– love seeing celebs just be mommies and daddies. :) Makes my heart melt.

If you can’t tell– I loved it. :)

How about we talk about the WINNER from the 1st post?! Yes lets!

Dun dun dun– and the Oscar– gift card goes to..

People Magazine, and the Oscars {And, a Giveaway!}

It’s award season and you know what that means.


People watching!


All lovely things. ;)

My favorite thing about the Oscars is probably the red carpet, I “go” for the gowns, the hair, and the handsome men.

*Cough * Cough*

"The Place Beyond The Pines" Premiere - 2012 Toronto International Film Festival

Which is when PEOPLE Magazine Oscars Double Issue comes in place. It’s the perfect magazine for me when I’m trying to catch a glimpse of the Oscars, drooling and miss something because bedtime calls– Monday morning planning– and over-all “Mom Duties” that get in the way of the glitz and glam. So when Monday afternoon rolls around and I feel like I missed the whole thing, I can catch up in car line when I wait for the girls to get out of school. Please tell me you do this too? I swear it’s the only time I have some peace and quiet. ha!

It hits shelves on March 1st 2013 and will only be out until March 18th 2013– so you know I’ll be sure to get mine day one ;)

I want to be sure you get your copy too, so I’m hosting a giveaway for a $20.00 Target Gift Card to pick up your copy of PEOPLE Magazine Oscars Double Issue and still have some money left for some chocolate and pop. Or is that just my idea of a good time?

You know what else is a good time? PEOPLE Magazine is hosting sweepstakes to test your PEOPLE trivia for chances to win big!

So, as you can see there’s a lot of winning going on…

If you’d like to enter the $20.00 Target giveaway, leave a comment telling me which stars/celebs do you want to see on the cover of this year’s PEOPLE Magazine 2013 Oscars Double Issue Campaign.

Easy! I know which ones I want to see!

I’ll choose a winner March 3rd 2013 via :)


Good luck! And, may the odds be ever in your favor. ;)

I’ve been in such a good mood lately thanks to our decision, I can’t wait for weekends to come to get my blog content going– and get closer and closer to my “do it” date..Wait what? If you didn’t read the post I swear it has nothing to babies, or doing.. anything like that. Ha But, maybe I can convince Jared of that too.. No? Not quite.

Anyway– Now that it’s super awkward. Let’s look at some things I’m obsessed with right now.

My gorgeous friend Lindsay shared a post recently about layering. Big fan. Big, big fan.


Um, this staircase reveal?! You’ve got to be kidding me. Stunning.

Halloween Decorating {and a giveaway!}

Giveaway Now Closed!

It’s here it’s here!


I’m so excited! Halloween is my favorite holiday. Before it turned into “Let’s see how little I can wear and get away with it” if you know what I mean. :)

Hayrides..Cider..Spooky movies (13 days of Halloween on Disney? Yes puh-lease!) The cold in the air. Kids running around high on sugar. Oh yeah, I’m kind of like Claire from Modern Family. “Halloween is MY holiday!”

So you can imagine my sheer delight when I was contacted by a lovely lady from to see if I wanted a box o’ goodies to sprinkle around the house for some Halloween cheer.

Yes. Yes I would!

Let me tell you something, this wasn’t a teeny tiny box. This was a giant halloween threw up all over my house type of box.

I was sent the Gold Package, which included a ton of wooden signs to hang up. Some pumpkin lanterns which will soon be hanging on the ceiling for a little Halloween get-together we have planned for the kiddos. Spider webs with some pretty creepy looking 8 legged friends and the neatest silhouettes. Lily and I had some fun taking things out and trying it out. Once I grab the rest of the seasonal things from the basement I’m pretty sure it’ll be the next best thing to the haunted mansion. ;)

We used the spiders to make something extra fun, which I’ll share with you tomorrow..

But, until then.. as if hasn’t been awesome enough to send me some fun things to play with, they want to send you something too! Not just one of you.. TWENTY FIVE of you! That’s right!
