Another Great Giveaway!!

Hey ladies, I have been stretched a little thin recently, but hey, all is well and I wanted to take the time to let you all know about a wonderful giveaway that my friend Belle is having at Life of a Southern Belle for her 300th post.

Look at this cute candelabra that you put in a wine bottle. Wouldn't that be adorable for your favorite tailgate party this fall? The next item is this beautiful shawl/wrap. That color is definitely my favorite!!! Isn't it gorgeous?

There will be 2 copies of Belle's favorite author, Pat Conroy's newest book to be given away. My oldest daughter just bought that book last week and it really sounded great!!! It takes place in one of my favorite places, Charleston!!!

You also have a chance to win a $20 gift card to Starbucks!

There are 5 chances to be included in the drawing, which will take place this Friday, so hop on over to her blog and take a look. You will love her blog!!! I am in for 5 chances at winning one of these fabulous prizes and I hope you win something too!
This past weekend I moved my daughter to college and I will be going back this Thursday to take one more load and spend the weekend.
I am loving my new job so much and it has been a Godsend for me!! No more stress to put up with at the preschool. I think I have decided on my new camera. I just need to settle down long enough to purchase it. Then hopefully after this weekend, I can settle back in here at home and get back to my "Empty Nest" routine. I have not been as good about posting on my blog lately. Sorry ladies. Life has just been too busy, but that is a good thing. I wouldn't want it any other way.

Love & blessings from NC!


  1. I'm so happy the job is working out for you. Glad you got your daughter settled in and you get to spend a weekend with her already....makes the transition back a little easier I think.

    Mine start classes today...they've had a good summer but they are ready to get back to all the activity.

    I'll hop over and check out the giveaways...the book is definitely on my 'to read' list. Have a great day! Looking forward to seeing you back at Empty Nest : )

  2. It's so good to hear how great your job is working out......God knew just what you needed, right? My son is back in the college life, too, and daughter started her senior year this week. I'll be empty soon, too!!! ;0

    I'll go check out the great giveaway!
