and yes ... i realize that it hasn't even been a full week since i last posted ... but holy granola. it kinda feels like this week has been about 16.2 days long.
or maybe it's just me.
and honestly ... the last few posts? kinda surprised that anyone has stuck around.
so ... i have a challenge for myself ... and for you if you are interested. a little something to put a smile on my face after this last week ... and to get me through the next 4 days of school. (and if anyone wants to come by and run a few meetings for me ... or complete the kid's summer folders ... or help me pack up my room and say goodbye to these kiddos that i've seen bloom over the past few years ... feel free.)
i am going to tell you 3 things that i can't wait to do this summer (thanks kelle for this idea! i am completely aware that i stole it from you ... but i needed a pick me up ... i hope you don't mind!)
... and i want you to do the same in the comments ... tell me 3 things that you are looking forward to ... and ... and ... and ...
for your troubles ... i'm gonna do a giveaway. i will (randomly - probably from a hat or a bowl ... or hell maybe i'll waterproof the names and throw them in the kiddie pool and have the girls catch it with a fishing net ...) pick a name to win a hand stamped personalized necklace from yours truly.
i've been fooling around with these necklaces for a little while ... and i'm actually going to be selling them (hopefully!) at a local farmer's market this summer. wish me luck. i'm kinda excited ...
comments will be closed on midnight, friday may 5th ...
if you are the winner (yippee!) ... we can chat via email to see what names or words that you would like on your necklace ... i've typically done a name and a birthstone ... but i'm sure we can come to some compromise if that's not what you want ... oh yeah ... and i'm going to limit the number of discs to 4 in the giveaway ... sorry to get all specific and technical on y'all.
my hand stamped necklace is the only piece of jewelry that i wear on a daily basis. it's simple. and i love having my girly-girls names next to my heart when i can't be with them.
so yeah ... onto my 3 things i'm super excited about ... besides the farmers market.one ... spending more time with my girly-girls and husband ... the summer schedule of a school based slp is so worth the less pay.
two ... a bit of traveling ... at the very least a family trip to arkansas, a few camping trips up north and (hopefully) a visit out to see my best(est) friend with the girls.
three ... walking around barefoot ... my toes love to see the light. even if they aren't pretty at the time ... mama sure needs a pedicure.
so ... tell me ... what are you looking forward to this summer?
