Lazy Sunday in the South, a Blog Button (finally), a Few Goodies, and an Upcoming Giveaway!

Like my picture....that's me on the right! Can somebody say couch potato! 
I need a, not a shot from the Dr or a shot of liquor, I need a shot of energy!
 I have been nothing but lazy today! This folks is not a good thing seeing as how I have more to do this week than I can possibly do! Seriously....what was I thinking!!! 
Oh well, I guess I just needed a break and some rest....:)

The one and only thing productive I did today was finally figure out how to put the blog button I created a couple weeks ago on my blog! I got very frustrated last time I tried and finally gave up. I decided since I was just sitting around today that I would try it again and I got it on the second try! I am so excited...:) Hopefully soon I will get brave enough to buy one of those beautiful backgrounds and redo my look! Be sure to grab it for your blog! I need to do that with all yours too! 
Isn't it cute...:)

I also want to share a few goodies I bought yesterday! I went BTS shopping with my sister and my two nieces, Shelby & Taylor. We had a great time...:) Here's a picture of me with Shelby and Taylor. Shelby (on the left) is the oldest. She is starting University of Florida in a couple weeks as a freshmen. She is a biology major who plans to attend med school and become a neurologist one day! Taylor (in the middle) is a high school junior and has plans to do something in communication in missions or ministry some day! They are both such smart, sweet, & kind young ladies! 
I am very proud of them!

Here are a couple new tops and a scarf I bought for work! I got really good deals on all 3 pieces. The scarf came from Old Navy at $9.95. The chevron print top was $12 and the other one was $10. They came from JC Penney's. It was tax free weekend too so I didn't have to any tax on school supplies or clothes!!!

Close-up of chevron top....I puffy heart chevron print lately! 
Close-up of the scarf....yep, it's chevron too!
Of course I had to hit up the Target $ Spot while I was there! I got everything you see here except the chevron zipper pouch. It came from Old Navy for $3.50. It was too cute to pass up! I got the striped bucket, the blue container, and the two paper pads (which match my color scheme) from the $ Spot! I also picked up the cute composition book, tablecloth, and planner from Target. The planner was on sale for $6.89! It is too's not the Erin Condren one I wanted, but it will do. Besides, I needed a cheap one for now so I can decide if I like it or use it enough to justify paying for an Erin Condren planner next year!

I also wanted to let you all in on my upcoming giveaway! I reached 100 followers last week so I wanted to celebrate! I am planning to put it on sometime this week, so keep checking back! Part of the prize will be a gift card for this awesome place!

Ok.....I think I may have talked myself into removing my huge big butt from the couch and going to cut out and sew my curtain and bunting banners for tomorrow's Monday Made It! I need to do some laminating and cutting out too and the good thing is I can come back to my little nest on the couch for the cutting part...LOL! Hope you are are having a restful Sunday!

Be Blessed!


  1. I love your button - very original! I can't tell you how many hours I spent making my button. I recently worked with someone to fix it up a bit - but I still can't seem to get part of the HTML text off my home page - Like you - I am taking a break!! I will go back with fresher eyes and mind one day and tackle it again!

  2. I am so tired! It's like I can't muster up the energy to do anything either. Plus, I'm at the point where I just don't know where to go from here. I don't know which number on my giant to-do list to start on. Ugh.

  5. I am always so excited to see the new stuff you post about! Your blog is doing great! I can't wait to see your next post! Want to guest blog post your next fun post?!?!?

  6. Thanks ladies! I just love reading what you all have to say! might have had the same problem I did. When I copied and pasted the image html code into it's spot, I pasted too much. I went back and just pasted the second part starting with http and ending with jpeg. There were originally 2 http's and jpegs and I didn't notice it. Confusing I know....sorry! Maybe it will help though!


  7. Alyssa.....I would love to do a guest post! I have never done one, but will learn how! Anything particular you want me to blog about or just something random? Let me know....:) I am so excited for you....have fun in your new classroom today!



I love reading your comments and will reply by e-mail unless you are a no-reply blogger. Thanks for taking time to leave one...:) Vicky
