Weekend Recap and a BIG Surprise!

Good Afternoon! I’m linking up today with my new, very cool, very hilarious blog friend Molly for YOLOMONDAYS! In case you were wondering, YOLO stands for You Only Live Once. This is my chance to tell you guys about anything I want and share it with other bloggers which is basically what I do everyday anyway. YOWZA! If you have a sec, check out Molly's stylish closet and buy something in support of her upcoming mission trip to Kenya.
Also, I have a VERY exciting surprise I will share at the end… so stay tuned!
I hope you all had a great weekend. We sure did. My daddy and stepmom Nancy hosted a BBQ for all of our family as kind of a going away party of sorts. This was very cool for me because it is not often that we are all together. The Donaldson’s weren’t able to make it which was sad (we missed y’all) but both my parents, both step parents, all of my siblings, and my grandma were there. Fun and fabulous food was had by all!

My weekend ended with a bang last night. My adorable friend Staci gashed her leg on a broken piece of glass while taking out the trash. The girl ended up having to get 5 stitches. Who knew trash could be so dangerous? I had the honor of going to the ER with her while her hubby (and my hubby) played video games took care of their three kids. We really made the most of it and laughed and talked the entire time. I took a bazillion pictures of the experience including the actual stitching. What on Earth possessed me to do that I will never know? It just seemed right at the time.

We encountered a man in the ER who brought in his wife because she was epileptic and about to have a grand mal seizure. He was having such a hard time because he was trying to take care of his wife and their 8 month old baby. It was heartbreaking to watch. Staci and I tried to help with the baby but fortunately they were whisked away to a room. I know this is a little odd but if you have a minute could you just pray for this family? I don’t know their names but I know they are going through a difficult time right now. Thanks.
Ok time for the exciting news… I’m going to host my first GIVEAWAY! My friend Carolyn of Silly Happy Sweet generously included a little something extra with the necklace I ordered and said I could do with it as I pleased. She is so kind! Since I love you all so much and appreciate you visiting my blog, I have decided to give it away to one lucky reader! I don’t know what it is yet but it is bound to be a super stylish handmade accessory that ANY of you would love and since my blog is read by about 5-7 people daily, the odds are definitely in your favor. Get excited! I will be posting the details this week so keep checking back and have yourself a great Monday!


  1. I think you did a great job recapping the events of the ER. thanks again for staying with me. If I recall correctly I think the lady's name that was having a seizure is Samantha Stone.

  2. Stumbled onto your blog, new follower :) Very Cute! I don't think I could have stayed in teh room with the whole stitches thing going on.... well not at least watching or taking pics... I would have had to have been facing the other way.
