Breast Cancer Awareness

So, you may have noticed the button on the side about the Breast Cancer Awareness Giveaway. I entered a month ago. I never really heard anything else about it. Until yesterday. I got a package from UPS. I had no clue who it was. I opened the box and it was the items from the giveaway. I WON!!!

Thanks to Kathryn from KV Creative Designs!!

Much Love,

Blog Makeover!

I thought it was time for some change around here! It's fall now and I just wasn't feeling the pastels anymore.

What do you think?

Unveiling the Palm Pre!

am so excited about this! I finally got my new phone: The Palm Pre!

I did a lot of research about this phone before I got one. My sister has one. Hubby-to-be's friend has one. So I had a couple that I could learn on. I read tons of reviews. Watched lots of videos about the functions.

I ordered it yesterday. And it's HERE! I took pictures. Hehe.

Opening the box

Mostly packing

The actual box

There it is!!!



From left to right: USB cord, Palm Pre, ear buds, phone case, phone chargers, instructions

It's so pretty! I love the software. It's so easy to use! It links all my contacts together from Google, Facebook, etc. There are apps for this phone (WATCH OUT IPHONE!) It's awesome. LOVE IT!

Ok, I'll hush now. Hehe.

Need Help from Savvy Online Shoppers!

I am looking for several things for my wedding and wedding-related festivities. I am having some trouble finding things! One of them should be so simple. I want a black cotton hoodie that zips in the front and has pockets. Something like this:

I need it to be a 3X-4X, because I like them to be loose. I don't want any design on it, because I am going to customize it. But I can't find one!! Please help!

There are more things, but I will put them on here later. I have friends here, so I must go.

Much Love,

My Old Kentucky Home

Hubby-to-be and I have been visiting my grandparents in Louisville KY this weekend. We were here a few months ago, which was the first time they met him. At that time, my Aunt B (who is my fave aunt and one of my fave people in the world!) was on vacation in Alaska, so she missed the chance to meet him. (This was before he proposed!!) Well, a few weeks after he proposed she called me and said that she has to meet him before the wedding, and before Christmas. (We always go to my grandparents house for Christmas) He had a 4 day weekend, so we decided to come up for a visit.

When we were here last, we saw my grandparents just for a few hours before we had to head home, so they have been getting to know Hubby-to-be a little better. (I think they like him! He is the only guy I have brought here to meet them!) Aunt B was at Grandma & Grandpa's house when we got here. Thus started the first round of interrogations. (Aunt B works for the IRS in the criminal justice dept. She has a gun and a license. You DO NOT mess with her!)

After several rounds of interrogations (just questions about him, his background, family, job, etc, etc, etc), he has survived! LOL! I think she likes him too. But the jury is still out. (no confirmation of her opinion.)

It's been a great weekend. Quality time with family. Good food. Getting lost and driving in circles Spontaneous exploring of the city. Just an all around great weekend. I kinda hate that we have to leave in the morning!

Much Love,

My First Swap!

I have recently become fascinated with blog swaps. I've done a few and they are so much fun! So I've decided to do my own!

I love purses. And wallets. I have a hard time not going to look at purses when I go shopping. SO what would be better than PURSES?! So here we go, Ladies! Your mission is to send a great purse. One that you would actually use. Don't just send your cast offs! Send a wallet, include something you always have in your purse. Lipstick? Notepad? Kitchen sink?! (JUST kidding!!)

You have until October 16th to sign up. (PLEASE sign up!!) I will then announce the partners and the swap date. I really hope this goes well. I have had fun with several swaps. Spread the word too!!

Be sure to grab the button on my sidebar for your blog!

*Note: My amazing fiance has gotten into the whole blog swap too. He's not participating in them, but he is helping me with ideas. In fact, he came up with the idea for THIS one! So, thank you sweetheart!*

Much Love,

Beverage Swap Pics!

I participated in the Beverage Swap from MRM's blog. It was so much fun! We had to send a drink, a cute mug or cup, something with the beverage "theme". My swap partner was Samantha. She emailed me after the partners were announced, to get an idea of what I liked. And boy did she do good!! Here are some pics!

Awesome candle.
