Sunday Shout-Outs!

First off, I found this awesome Giveaway through the SITS site this morning, and had to share with any of you who share a penchant for girlie hair accessories as I do. I'm hoping to win though, just so you know. Check out this blog, The Big Piece of Cake (just the title is appealing to me!) to see what she's giving away. You won't be disappointed!

Several bloggers graciously tagged me with some fun games and awards this week, and I wanted to pass along the fun!

Lacey over at Lacey in Love (This girl is seriously talented! Love her style!) tagged me for the What's in Your Purse game. Do you really want to know? Okay, here goes....

This is my gloriously enormous bag. I got it at Target last summer. I love it. I can fit all sorts of junk inside. Don't laugh at me. I'm a mom, okay?

Who doesn't need two cell phones? I have my silver one for everyday use, and a pink Disney Princess one for a night on the town. I can talk to Cinderella whenever I want. A "Snack Trap" of goldfish to bribe small children with, keys, lotion, hand sanitizer spray, my Vera wallet, a pink coupon organizer, checkbook, glasses case, brush, pen, chapstick, and lip gloss. We round it out with some Wet Ones because you never know when you're going to have to wipe down a crumby table in Panera. Phew! That's a lot! But I must have all of it.
Lacey also tagged me in the game 6 Unimportant Things that Make Me Happy. In no particular order:
1. Finding the perfect accessory to match my outfit for the day
2. The first glimpse of the ocean as I reach the top of the dune
3. Getting something in the mail that is not a bill or junk mail
4. Discovering a piece of chocolate in the bread box. Did I hide it from myself? Who cares?!
5. Invitations. It doesn't matter if it's an Evite, a card in the mail, or a phone call...I love making plans to do fun stuff!
6. New shoes
To participate in this fun, I tag:
1.Alison at They Gave Me a Mullet
2.Suzanne at Southern Inspiration
3.Xazmin at This is the Year
4.Amanda at Imperfectly Beautiful
5.Meri at Seriously?Ridiculous!
6.Emily at The Webbs

  1. Hi Amanda,
    You my dear are such a sweetie. Thank you for the sweet mention and "award". I think your blog is pretty FaBULous also. Have a great weekend:)

  2. Totally off topic, but I saw a comment that you made over at the Black Sphere....take a minute when you can and take a look at my political blog too, follow it if you like it!

  3. Amanda, thank you so much for the award! I'll blog about it tomorrow :)

  4. Yeah!! Congrats on your award!


I love to hear your feedback! Please feel free to leave comments...just don't send me spam asking me to buy stuff off your website! I've got three kids and no money to purchase your magic weight-loss pill or bust enhancement, or whatever else you might be selling. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
