Playing Catch Up! And the LP Jewelry Roll Winner!

Enter my giveaway for a necklace and earring set from Finders Keepers Jewelry by this Friday at 8 pm EST!


Happy Tuesday Lovelies! I am finally getting back into the groove of things...the wedding and quick trip home definitely threw me into a tizzy! I am making my way through the hundreds of new items on my Google reader and have been trying to comment as much as possible! Anyway, try to bear with me as I catch up on all of your fabulous lives!!


As for me, I did make it to the Rue La La Lilly sale last Friday and scored the LP Brighton Multi-Patch dress...super cute and I will post pictures as soon as the dress arrives.


Next, Holly from Pink is My Signature Color tagged me to participate in the 8 Things Tag. Here goes:

8 Things I Look Forward To:
#1.) Moving back to Georgia.
#2.) Having a house with a yard.
#3.) My birthday and any other holiday.
#4.) Spending time with family and friends.
#5.) Finishing my graduate degree this December.
#6.) Blogging.
#7.) Church.
#8.) Watching my favorite TV shows.

8 Things I Did Yesterday:
#1.) Fell asleep at 8:30 pm.
#2.) Ate PF Chang's for dinner.
#3.) Flew from Atlanta to LA...took 5 1/2 hours!
#4.) Took the dog for a walk.
#5.) Checked my mail and received several sweet notes from my bloggy friends!!!
#6.) Called my insurance company to see why my rates didn't go down on my 25th birthday - it's because California doesn't recognize age as a reason to decrease one's rates...lovely!

8 Things I Wish I Could Do:
#1.) Stay on track with Weight Watchers!

While I'm at it, Holly is also having her very first giveaway! Go show her some love and enter to win $30 to spend at The Watermelon Tree. She has some great jewelry pieces at affordable prices so it's definitely possible to get more than one item with that $30! Deadline to enter is May 12 at midnight!


I was also tagged to post a picture of myself at prom, but I was unable to find a picture when I was at home. I'm sorry Danielle! I let you and everyone else down :( sad face

But I will definitely be participating in your upcoming Fabulous Friday posts (and all of you should be too)!! Can't wait to see the next fabulous theme!



Moving on, I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who participated in the conversation on cancer last week. I really appreciate all of your comments and know that your words and experiences will be put to good use by the Go Public organization.

I wrote down all the names on everyone's comments and the winner for the Lilly Pulitzer Rolling in It Jewelry Roll is Shell from Stuttering Shell. Thank you Shell for all of your meaningful comments. Please email me at sweetteadiaries {at} gmail {dot} com with your choice of jewelry roll design and your shipping address.


Okay I think my lunch break is officially over and I have a ton of work waiting for me! And Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone - I'm planning on hitting up my favorite Mexican restaurant tonight for some chips, salsa, and margaritas! Yum!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who called my insurance company when my rates didn't go down on my 25th birthday -- that was one of the reasons I was looking forward to it :)

Michelle said...

Yay! How exciting...I won! This has totally made my Cinco de Mayo (because the drunk, snoring hubby in the bedroom isn't as exciting...too many margaritas!). Thank you for the letting us all chat about cancer...it was great "meeting" people and hearing their responses. Oh, and I'm totally checking out Holly's site now, too...I have b'day presents to buy!!

Emailing you now...

Congrats to the winner.

I lived in the LA area for a bit after graduation from college. I was happy when I moved back home to the Mid-west. Nothing against LA, I guess it was my family that I missed most.

Katie said...

Ooh I love your list. I love SVU and One Tree Hill too! And I want to go to Disneyland tooooo!

And Congrats to the winner of your giveaway!!
