I ♥ Kindle.....and I just entered a contest through Noobie to try and win one!

I would love to win one of these! I've wanted one since I was 18 months old. Ok, so they just came out a couple of years ago, but I still have ALWAYS wanted one! Whether you are interested or not, would you click on this link & fill out the entry form PRETTY PLEASE WITH SUGAR ON IT! If you do it will give ME an additional entry & it obviously will enter YOU in the contest too.

If you win and don't want the Kindle & if you didn't quite get the picture that I so delicately painted above...I DO! Ahem, so please keep me close to your heart when considering who to give it to when it arrives. If you are trying to win one for yourself, make sure you respond to the email that will be sent to you following your entry. Your link will be different than mine...this is very important to know!

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. You may now go back to your regularly scheduled program,

Have fun! Hope I oops, you win!

Hugs & Prayers,

i'm a yankee candle gal, but something new has begun to steal my heart....

Long time, no post! Life is still running at a very busy pace for me & I find it hard to find time to blog. Thanks to my sweet friend, Amy, I have stopped to take a moment to type up this post. Amy is hosting another amazing give-away over on her blog. If you're like me, and love candles, tarts, burners & room sprays, you won't want to miss out on this one! I have to admit, I am an Yankee Candle ADDICT & it is hard for me to buy anything but Yankee! I want scents that last & are STRONG!

Several months ago Brandy Painter, a consultant for Scentsy, held a fundraiser for Amy. And ONLY because I LOVE Amy did I break down and order from her show. When my order arrived on my doorstep, I opened the door & I could actually smell the oils through the cardboard box. Needless to say, it was love at first sniff for me. Now Brandy is assisting Amy in a Give-Away as well as helping her host Scentsy Holiday Party!

Following are the rules to enter & if you so desire, order.

ORDERING for Amy's Holiday Party:
To order go to look for the name Amy Briggs on the left side bar under the title "My Open Parties". Click on her name to shop, order & give her credit toward her party.

Plug In Warmer & Brick Scent of your choice!

~To enter you must go to and post what you like about her store.

~For another entry: Go to Amy's blog & post what you like from Brandy's store.

~For another entry: Blog about this Give-Away

~For another entry: Tweet ( about this Give-Away

~Lastly, for another entry: Order something from Brandi's shop under the name AMY BRIGGS Holiday show!

Don't forget to head back to Amy's blog to let her know of all your entries!

Now promise me that not only will you do this, but if you win, you'll gift ME with the warmer & brick! By the way, my favorite scent is Cinnamon & is AMAZING!

Hugs & Prayers,

Oh, Happy Day!

My sister & BIL just celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary yesterday and he gave her this beautiful necklace as a gift.
And to sweeten things up a bit......they gave ME this!!!!!

A Kristen's Custom Creation necklace!

Oh yeah, oh yeah!

*Happy Feet*

Break it down!

*Go Me*
I have been wanting one of these gorgeous disc necklaces since the 1st time I saw her work over a year ago and now I have one! What's almost more exciting than owning one, is the fact that my sister & BIL truly recognized how much I mean to them. That it was I who helped them achieve 20 years of marriage. That they wouldn't be where they are today without my guidance, counseling, prayers and love.....I need a Puffs w/ lotion...I'm a little verklempt.
Visit Kristen's shop & check out her full line of custom personalized jewelry! There are MANY pieces to choose from, or get creative and design your own.

Thank you Keli & Jay for recognizing me on your wedding day.
*Sigh* Feeling the love.
Hugs & Prayers,

Fantastic Giveaway AND A Fundraiser to Help Philip!

Hi Friends,
I just entered Amy's giveaway! If you do not follow Amy, take the time to visit her blog and read about her battle with cancer. You will be inspired by her & her faith & hope in Jesus Christ!
Amy is offering this beautiful electric candle

to one of her readers to win! BUT before you go there to enter I'd like to tell you that she is also hosting a fundraiser to help with her son, Philip's medical needs.

Live Life Solid (TM) is making this Tshirt available for purchase.

(Photographer: John Waire)

One half of all the proceeds will go directly to Philip's medical needs! This is a huge blessing from Lisa, owner of Live Life Solid (TM) to Philip & his family! Thank you Lisa!

The T's are "pepper grey" in color and are premium 6.1oz. 100% ringspun cotton which is soft washed and pigment-dyed. The unisex shirts generally run a size larger than an average tee for Ladies. Ex. If you cannot decide between a MED or LG - MED is a good bet...if you usually take a large, give Med a try.

Short Sleeved: $20

Long Sleeved: $25

There are two ways you can purchase a Tshirt:
1. email me, or

2. Click here and this will redirect you to Amy's blog and you can order directly through her.

Not only will you get an amazing product, you will be helping an AMAZING young man! (I encourage you to click on Philip's name to read his story. )

*Personal note: I do not believe that we can find "positive energy" through objects. What I do believe is that ALL things are possible through a personal relationship w/ Jesus Christ! This includes physical healing & provision for our finances! The promotion of this fundraiser is an effort from me to help a dear friend raise much needed funds for her son. The shirt's message of "COURAGE" is perfect for Philip! He has survived a stroke, undergone 19 brain operations, endured over 20 orthopedic operations & currently he is preparing to undergo additional brain surgeries....Philip is the picture of COURAGE!

Please PRAYERFULLY consider purchasing a Tshirt! More importantly, please remember to PRAY for Philip!

Hugs & Prayers,
