Happy absentee...

Hubby had been gone for work.

Hubby came home.

Wifey dropped everything and made snuggling with hubby priority 1.

Though absent from the interwebs as of late, Wifey is happy.

:)

VERY happily,
Emily

Give it away, give it away, give it away now...

Ok, so it's been cold around here lately.


Like, REALLY cold.


I'm thinking since warming my fingers and toes seems to be out of the question for the time being, I'd like to do a little something that'll at least warm my heart.


(collective "awwww")


Well, as cheesy as that may have been, what better thing to give away than a piece of your heart right?...


...or rather a heart-shaped piece of metal?


(you see where I'm goin with this...)


With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I think it only fitting to give one of these away...

If you would be interested in tossing your name into the mix for a chance to have your very own "Sittin in a Tree" necklace here's what I'd like you to do...


I am always so interested to hear about the "love stories" of other people, so, in the comment section, please briefly share one of the following...

"Your BEST Valentine's Day ever"

Or

"Your WORST Valentine's Day ever"

The winner will ultimately be chosen at random from those who leave their Valentine's Day comment and comments will close Saturday, Feb. 13th @ midnight CST) with the winner to be announced on Valentine's Day! (Fine print at the very bottom*)

I can't wait to hear your stories and I suppose it's only fair I start things off with a few stories of my own...

Ok...

-WORST Valentines Day ever...

My worst Valentine's Day ever would have to be the year that I asked Mr. G what he was gonna plan for us to do for Valentine's Day and he said probably nothing because (and I paraphrase)

"We're already married. We already have each other. That's just a holiday where single guys try to impress the girls they like. Can't we just go out for the heck of it? Celebrating ON Valentine's day is just too expected".

Needless to say, once I explained to him that it didn't matter what HE thought about it and that it was just something I needed him to make a big deal about, he's done quite well ever since. :)

-BEST Valentine's Day ever...

9 month old Lillie at Grandma and Grandpa's house for the evening.
A couple of very nice and heartfelt cards.
Some GORGEOUS roses.
Fancy Italian restaurant.
Oysters on the half shell for the first time.
9 months later, Isabel was born.
(PS anyone who tells you you can't get pregnant while you're nursing is a LIAR.)

Sorry, that was really probably too much information... keep your comments G-rated people!

Alrighty folks, let's hear it!!!...

Blushing a bit,
Emily

*Aforementioned "fine print"...

I posted this picture as an example but the winning necklace doesn't necessarily have to include the same exact details. I'll be in contact with the winner to discuss the details.

In case the person who wins this necklace doesn't have someone they're "Sittin in a Tree" with, I can certainly stamp an alternate phrase.


I love Starbucks.

And dark chocolate.

But not oysters.

EDIT to the fine print:

Any "Anonymous" commenters must include their first name with their comment as a way of knowing who they are! :)

Also, no matter how many times you comment, only one entry per person will be included for the drawing.

THANKS!!!
