Okay.... so I bet you thought I forgot about my giveaway!  Well, you would be wrong.  I didn't forget, I have just been out of town and blah, blah, blah....

SO.... (ever notice how I love to use "....." while I blog?),  thanks to CSN Stores, I'm giving away this great Wine Rack!

Thanks for everyone who entered, and the winner is:


Yay!!!  I was so excited when your number popped up!  You're preggers so you will just have to use it to store the wine for now, and in a few months you can empty it out.  : ) 

You all might not know it, but I've known Amber for a long time, since high school in fact, so I'm really happy she won!   Be sure to check out her blog, she's hilarious! 


Hope everyone's having a great day.

I reluctantly came back home

I'm back!!!!   Wow, I feel so out of touch with everything right now!   We got back from Europe last week.  We had such an amazing time!   This past week I've just been trying to play catch up.  Plus I caught a cold while I was over there, so I've been kind of out of it.   Hopefully it will be gone in a few days.    I could write a book about everything that we did.... but don't worry, I won't.   Here are a few hi-lights of our amazing trip: 


In front of the London Eye.

Warwick Castle

Shakespeare's home in Stratford Upon Avon

Oxford College

The Anchor Pub. Shakespeare used to drink here!

The Globe Theater


Our first day there, we headed straight to the Eiffel Tower!

The Moulin Rouge! 

At a cafe in Montmartre, my favorite part of Paris.

The Louvre

Last night in Paris. 

It's so awesome at night!


The Colosseum is an amazing sight.

The reason why I gained 3 lbs in 12 days.

The Trevi Fountain

The town of Cortona in Tuscany... sigh.

Everything is beautiful there.

In Montepulciano.  
Anyone recognize this from a certain movie!??
Yup.... it's "Voltera."

The Cantina Contucci, a 1000 year old winery!

Gelato... another reason for the 3 lbs!!

Sigh.... we had such an amazing time.  I can't wait to go back.   I loved all 3 countries for so many different reasons.  I have to say though that I fell in love with Italy.   I can't wait to go back and spend some more time in Tuscany.   It is so beautiful there.   I want to move there, buy me a pink moped and buzz through the streets in a trench coat and heels!    I would also settle for living in London!   They speak english there so it would be easy to manage, and it's just a short (and cheap) plane ride to so many amazing and beautiful places!   Plus, Arbonne has a headquarters in London, so I'd be just fine conducting business from there!   Sounds good to me!!    

Maybe someday.....

I have my priorities.

We leave for Europe in 3 days!!!   And it seems like it's all I can think about.   

Here are things I've done this past week in order to prepare:

1.  Drove to 3 different stores and spent half the day looking for passport covers... cause it's very important to have a cute passport cover when going to Europe... obvi.

2.  Bought a new pair of shoes to take, and wore them to break them in.  Got blisters and decided not to take them with me.

3.  Stayed up until 4 AM researching the laws on bringing wine back into the US from Europe.   .....I don't know why it seemed so important that night?

4.  Bought a new outfit for Yoda (my chihuahua) to wear when I drop him off at my mom's house before we leave.  

5.  Bought a power converter, 3 new dresses, 2 shirts, 3 pairs of shoes, a new jacket, a sweater, a purse,a journal, and 3 new head bands for the journey.

Things I have NOT done in preparation for my trip:


Guess I better get on that.
