Blog Awards and Giveaways!

Well this weekend turned out to be great!  The hubbs and I went to one of his car shows on Saturday.  It was nice and cool out, so I really enjoyed it.  There's just something about the nip in the air of early fall that I  love!  And yesterday, we just had a relaxing day at home.

Today, when I was browsing my favorite blogs, I found out 3 things that I am just SO excited about!!!

1. I got a Blog award from Allison
2. I won Let's Be Preppy's Scentsy Giveaway!
3. Emily from In The Life of Emily is doing an amazing giveaway! See the bottom of the page for more info!


Thanks so much to Allison and Katie!!

I was so excited when I saw that Allison gave me a blog award!  I've never gotten one before! I found her not too long ago, and absolutely love reading her blog! Thanks miss Allison!

rule #1: thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them: Done!

rule #2: share seven things about yourself.

1. I love all things monogrammed. If there is such a thing as monogram addiction, I am guilty!

2. I'm a crafter. I like to make candles, soaps and other bath & body products. I love it so much, I made a business out of it!

3. I want the Vineyard Vines patchwork SUV to drive around in.

4. I love to bake! It is one of my favorite hobbies. My dad was an amazing cook and my mom is a great baker. Luckily, I got both of those genes! 

5. My favorite vacation spot is St. Augustine, FL. I grew up there, and love going back with Neil any chance I get. It has so much history and the beach is just perfect!

6. I'm a night owl. I can stay up all night and be good to go the next day. I'm defiantly not a morning person.

7. Every time I go to TJ Maxx, I think I am going to find some Lilly stuff...but, sadly, I never do :(

rule #3: pass the award onto some newly discovered blogs:

Kat at Mary & Dyer
Ashley at Everyday Ashley
