They so crack me up!

Thursday, June 25, 2009 is here!

OMG! Ok so my little laptop hp mini arrived early! It was not supposed to be here until 6/30 and I got it today. It is so pretty. I am in love. I still have to read all the info on it so that I know how to work my webcam and stuff. I will seriously be posting pictures of it very, very soon. I am so incredibly happy. This the best win ever. I was just sure something would mess it up. More to come later.

I actually WON.....

So a couple of weeks ago I posted about a giveaway for a HP Mini Vivienne Tam Edition from Intel. I am delighted to announce that I was the winner in that giveaway. I just got confirmation yesterday that my little mini is on its way to me from Intel. Honestly I can not believe it still. I can’t wait to get it and will post as soon as it arrives. According to tracking that should be by Tuesday of next week. I will also be sure to post a video blog using my new webcam!

Thanks so much to BlissfullyDomestic and Intel for this fabulous giveaway.

First Folder - Tenth Photo

I was tagged by Shawn over at Seriously-Shawn. You have to choose the 1st folder and the 10th picture in that folder and tell a little story about that picture. So here is mine......

This was actually many years ago because my kids are much bigger now. This was about 3 years ago....they are now 10 and 6. We were on our yearly vacation to the beach. They were hanging out having homemade icecream made by there SuperDad....always a treat. Great ending to a long day on the beach. I so miss when my kids were younger. I love that my little girl hardly had any hair - just like me when I was a kid. She had the cutest little bald head forever.
So I am supposed to tag 5 other people to play is who I have tagged.

New Listings....

Two Newest Etsy listings.

Here is a gorgeous eye catching necklace. This necklace was created with a white freshwater coin pearl, a flashy labradorite briolette, a pale green prasiolite pear briolette, and a fine silver hammered teardrop made by me. These have all been beautifully wire wrapped with sterling silver wire. I have added light gray Swarovski crystals as accents at the front and at the clasp. This necklace measures 18 inches and has a sterling silver hook clasp and a sterling silver rolo chain. This can be worn casual or for dressing up.

Here is a gorgeous Golden Yellow Agate Druzy necklace. This sterling silver necklace measures 18 inches long and has a sterling silver hook clasp with tiny white moonstone rondelles for accent. This is a very large stone with beautiful crystals. Druzy (can also be spelled drusy): When ground water carrying dissolved silica is forced into a porous area of the rock, rapid cooling often occurs, causing the formation of tiny crystals on the surfaces or in cavities of the rock. The clear crystals often form on top of previously deposited minerals. This is called a druzy.

Mamarazzi's Favorite Things Swap (2)

So I participated in Mamarazzi’s Favorite Things Swap again. This is my second time and both experiences have been wonderful. I am convinced that I got the best partner ever. Janna over at Happiness is a Journey was my partner and she is AWESOME. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her through her blog, emails back and forth, and even her favorite things. I wish that she lived closer to me because I know that we would be great friends. So here this is what it looked like when I opened the box.

I was very excited. Seriously how cute is this?

So I pulled out this cute black and pink bag with my initial on it that was jam packed with stuff.

Look at all these wonderful items. I was in love with them all....lots of them were already my favorites!

So here is the list of items I received:

♥ Pink and Black purse with my initial "S" on it
♥ Cute little black bag for keeping my lipsticks in a place where I can find them
♥ Awesome pink Aloe Socks
♥ Pier One Ember Home Fragrance Spray - love it!
♥ Bath & Body Works Coconut Lime Verbena Lotion - one of my favorite scents
♥ Bath & Body Works Coconut Lime Verbena Body Wash
♥ Slatkin & Co. Pineapple and Mango Candle from Bath & Body Works - smells amazing!
♥ Pier One Hors d' oeuvres picks
♥ Bath & Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom Gift Set with the lotion and perfume - another favorite scent
♥ the cutest little shopping list book - I love it!
♥ Seeds for planting Texas Bluebonnet flowers - love flowers
♥ Soy Sugar Scrub - have already used this and love it - smells great and feels wonderful.
♥ Texas Cookie Cutter
♥ A cup with my "S" initial - so cute
