Congratulations to Melinda, yesterday’s winner of Caribou coffee and a pink “Hello gorgeous” mug!
Throwing big parties is not my thing. I don’t think I’m a natural hostess. In fact, you can usually find me darting around, making sure food is replenished, saying things to myself like, “What the actual hell was I thinking?” and giving anyone who converses with me a deer-in-headlights look.
So… not my thing.
At Olivia’s birthday party, I tried to not get stressed out and enjoy myself, but… it was hard to just relax.
But gather one or two other couples in my house, or invite my family over for a lunch, and I’m in my element. Plus, it’s a great excuse to clean the house. I’ll even put the salsa in a cute little bowl instead of leaving it in the jar.
Isn’t this sign adorable? It was made by a dear friend of mine, Celina, whose talent knows no bounds. The girl really needs to get her own Etsy shop, but she may be busy with her three little miracles (that, and helping me make gobs of prizes for this giveaway). I’d like to think this sign would look great hanging in a kitchen. Because isn’t that where people naturally gather? To eat?
All you have to do to enter to win this handmade sign is:
- Subscribe to my blog, if you haven’t already and,
