Hey ladies – time for another update on the goings on in my life.

As you know we recently held a very nice giveaway for a Monroe and Main Fashion Accessory Bundle for the #MMColorConfidence campaign which I was thrilled to be a part of. Our winner was Tina W. who was very gracious in her email response about her win. So another congrats to Tina and I know you will love your fashion accessory bundle!

On another note regarding this campaign, Monroe and Main also awarded three lucky bloggers the same prize package! One prize was for best photos, one for best story line to their theme, and one for best promotion of the giveaway. I was so happy to learn that I won the prize for best promotion and was a close second to best photography! I am so honored and will be receiving the prize package as well! A big thank to you to Monroe and Main and the hostesses Still Blond After All These Years and Modly Chic! Also a huge thank you to all of you who entered! I am sorry we can’t all win but stay tuned for more great giveaway opportunities to come!

I had a wonderful time going to a Kansas City Chiefs Preseason Game – GO CHEIFS! – with my family…


Chiefs Fans at Game

The girls behind us photobombed which was funny so we took a photo of them – I told them they may end up on a blog somewhere …

Kansas City Chiefs fans are the friendliest people! Oh and the Chiefs WON!!! It started pouring rain at the end of the 4th quarter but we stayed until they called the game, which was awesome!

Since two of our dogs passed we have been focusing on doing more with our little pup Lyla so she won’t feel so alone. We take walks more frequently and she has always loved going for car rides, but now every now and then we take her for a special treat of ice cream. She does not get to eat too much, but she loves the treat!

My daughter’s boyfriend turned 21 this past week and we had a nice family celebration here at our place with his father and best friend.


Happy Birthday !!

You can just tell how fancied up we got for this event. Actually we all enjoyed a nice laid back evening at home, later we played Cards Against Humanity which is always interesting.

For me the highlight of the evening was giving the 21 year old birthday boy a little kids grab bag from the Dollar Tree. Something I used to get my kids when they were little. We were all taken aback a bit by the messy paint (not finger paints that wash off easily) and the brass knuckle like toy. Hummm Dollar Tree what are you thinking?

Since the birthday boy does not like cake so much, but loves doughnuts, he got a doughnut “cake” perfect for any newly minted 21 year old. Don’t worry we all stayed in and were very careful with intake. He is a very responsible young man.

I take that back about the highlight of the evening, the true highlight was how appreciative the birthday boy was for us having this small shindig for him. I think he said thank you ten or more times. Love him!

I am a Chewy blogger – Chewy is a wonderful pet supply shop where we get most all of our pet items. Since our pets are part of our family we do tend to spoil them, but I think all pet lovers are just like us! I do receive an item or two every month from Chewy to promote, but I am also a Chewy customer too! I got our pets quite a haul this month!


Our Pets Love Chewy!

Our Lyla got a new collar, well overdue for her. The cats got two more Catit Scratcher Lounges. I received one a couple months ago to promote and the cats went nuts over it! It’s still being used but with five cats we needed a couple more. All of the furkids got some of their favorite treats, and the major part of the haul was a brand new kitty condo, as I call it which is huge! They love it!

I am sure I will remember something I wished I had told you all about after I publish this but from what I can recall, those are the highlights of our past month so far.

Thank you for allowing me to share a bit of my life with all of you and if you have anything you would love to tell me about please use the comments below and let me hear about your achievements, happy moments, or even concerns. I am always ready to reply with congrats, or hugs!
