welcome back!

This is Will saying hi. No joke, I caught it on camera! So my parents have been gone for a whole WEEK in Cancun and I have missed talking to my mother every day. As soon as Brad heads out the door, I call her. Needless to say, it's been a long and lonely week and I've had no desire to blog if my dear mother can't read it and praise me for it. But have no fear, she is back, and so am I! So these pics of Will are for you mama, because we know what it means to miss someone... *sigh* Oh, and just a little FYI: this is another one of those shirts, both from Target and it says "Monkey see. Monkey do. Monkey get in trouble too." So perfect, it's Monk to a "T" (hello, where the heck did I get his nickname?! Haha! And he loves Curious George... and he looks, acts and sounds like him too! Perfect, eh?)!*

I had a few helpers today and we came up with the three winners for the past give-away. And they are, in order: Aunt Shannon (who needs a blog so I can read it and link it...), Carlee Hoopes and Ashley Hollis! Aunt S. will be getting the lovely tranquility set which includes bubble bath, aromatherapy, and massage oil (have fun uncle D! ;) I can think of no one else who needs more tranquility than that lovely woman! Thanks for reading my blog, it makes me happy! And let's not forget the little preggo misses Carlee and Ashley, who will each be getting a purse-sized lotion in either the mango or cherry almond scent. Since Carlee is winner #2, she gets to pick which one she wants first, and then Ashley will get whichever one is left. But no worries Ash, because they both smell dang good, they're the two most popular scents!

And what's more, everyone who entered gets a consolation prize!!! Yippee! You all get a sample of whatever you like, whether it's skincare (cleanser/moisturizer, let me know which one and what skin type), haircare (shampoo/conditioner) OR body wash, and the latter two come in our Rosemary Mint scent (my favorite! Mmmm....). Samples will be given out on a first come, first serve basis so act fast to get the sample you want. But just know that you will get something and that that something will be fabulous! ;) Leave a comment and let me know what it is and you'll be pampered in no time!

So there you have it ladies! Congratulations and thanks for playing! If I don't already have your address, send it to me!
anything and/or everything is 25% off
for the rest of this month

So if you want to jump in on some of the purchasing action, jot me a note, m'k? You can check out my site to see if there's something that tickles your fancy, or your mother's/father's, as their celebratory days are coming up fast... ;)

I think I'm going to have a give-away almost every month because I love them! It makes me happy, to make other people happy. Yeah, I'm a people pleaser... I have yet to take some pictures of the next fun contest, so I will announce that in a couple of days, when I get around to it. I've been busy, busy, with the usual, including scrapping. So I'll be posting my recent layouts soon, too!

It's good to be back, and to have people back to be back to!
Who's with me?! :)

*no, that's not our kitchen. I wish! It's the Domans (love them! And their kitchen...).


  1. Woo-hoo!! I'm getting rewarded for staying up until 1:00 in the morning! Your rosemary-mint wash sounds (and I'm sure smells) delectable. Thanks Beth! You're the greatest!

    P.S. - Will's shirt is great.

  2. I'm cool with whatever and have no specific preferences. Make it a surprise.

    But if you really really need me to pick something, let me know.

  3. Thanks for the welcome home!!! I missed talking to you, too! And I really miss Will! This is terrible to live far away, but lat least it's better than you being in WA . . . For everyone out there, seriously!--this Sensaria stuff is the best!! I held out for a long time because I hate to follow daily moisturizing routines, but I caved in, and am a HUGE fan now! Try it, you'll love it!

  4. Yippee!! I never win anything!!! I'm so excited. I've never heard of or tried Sensaria before. I'm glad I get the chance!

  5. The haircare sounds good to me, but really I am cool with what ever.

  6. I'm up for a cleanser sample...love your giveaways...but really, I feel like a winner every time I wander onto your blog. (cheesy yet true)

  7. I know that we arent as good as a mom but we do look forward to reading your blog too and miss YOU when you are gone! Welcome back! You were missed!

  8. Woo-hoo! I'm so excited to try a sample. Thank you! I'm easy to please. I'm just excited about trying it. If you have something left in the Rosemary Mint-I'd love to try it. Did you get my plast email about ordering some lotion? Let me know. I'm so excited you're back to blogging. Love ya!

  9. I am so excited that I won! I don't know how I missed this post either. Thanks for cluing me in on the fact that I was a big winner! :)

  10. I forgot to tell you which flavor I wanted. I think I'll go with the cherry almond. Is that a good one? It sounds unique. If you need any more info. just e-mail me (carleehoopes@gmail.com).


You're currently in the process of making my day. So thanks for that! *B
