What's going on……plus a fun giveaway.

I'm not going to even apologize for my absence……I am not arrogant enough to 
think you are all sitting online waiting to hear about my next client project, 
diy attempt, gallery wall conquest…..like me, you have 
living to do!  Now that doesn't mean I don't get all
giddy when you comment, compliment and read along
with my yammering on ……… cause I do!

So here it is Saturday morning, it's peaceful in my house - the
teen and tween are sleeping in, the hubs is on a golf trip this weekend,
I am planning my day all the while the sun is doing it's best
to make us in the Pacific Northwest believe it is really spring.

Want to know what's on my 'ta-da' list today?

*some cleaning

*a little laundry

*planting the lettuce and pea starts
I purchased earlier this week

* purchasing a birthday gift
for the party my tween is 
attending tonight

*working out

* And this evening is a high school dance
so I will be driving my freshman, her date
and multiple friends to pre-parties, post parties,
photographing, calming nerves, primping,
reassuring, beaming with pride and 
soaking it all in

The Good Stuff.

And just because, I am giving away a sweet Easter banner
I found at Target.

I picked up one of these for myself shortly after I returned from
spring break and posted a photo on Instagram and had
many questions on where I found it in my Target - seems
it was quite the elusive little item in many Targets across the 
country……So the next time I went to Target I purchased 
a couple for friends. And because I think of all of you
as friends, I would like to choose a reader to 
send one of these cuties to for your Easter celebration!

Please leave me a comment telling me what's on your ta-da list
this weekend.  I will choose a winner tomorrow night (10 pm PST)!
*US residents only!

Then, come back on Monday for another giveaway!
