This, a winner, and that...

MOOD STATUS: "Nervous". Need to give a talk tomorrow on Intentional Living for my church's women's coffee. (At least I know it won't be a rough audience) LOL!

A big Thank You to everyone who stopped by and visited guest author Gina Ardito as she talked about her typical writing routine!

And now for the really good stuff--AKA the winner of her book.

Congrats to Terri Tiffany! Woo-hoo!

Please e-mail me and send me an address you would like the book mailed to!

In other news, my daughter's class is involved in a special project to raise money to help the manatees. I think her class raised enough money for each child to be able to adopt one. My daughter's drawing was chosen as the one to put on all the fundraising items, like tote bags and stuff.

Here it is:

Cute, huh?

Also, it was my 15th wedding anniversary yesterday, but the hubby surprised me with flowers on Wednesday.

Aren't they beautiful?

And that's it for me. Now I must rehearse my speech for tomorrow's church talk and then I'm going to totally VEGE the rest of the weekend.

Hope you enjoy your weekend!

Happy anniversary, Jennifer. Your hubby sounds like a keeper.

Ref: tote
The artwork is great! And the color choices pop. Tell her for me she has real talent. I love all the little details she put in.

Chicki Brown said...

It looks like kiddo has some talent.

When you get a minute, stop by my blog and see the cover Zaynah did for my upcoming Kindle release.

Happy #15, and have a great weekend!

Jessica Nelson said...

Awww, happy Anniversary!!! Congrats to Terri too.
We have tons of manatees down here. They're pretty neat animals.
Happy weekend!

I love your daughter's drawing!

And excellent flower choice by your husband...I always love it when my husband thinks outside of the red-roses box. :-)

Happy Anniversay Jennifer! Fifteen years is a blessing.

You will go a great job tomorrow, I'm sure of it. My Pastor always says, prepare like it all depends on you and stand like it all depends on God. I pray every woman in the room receive a spiritual blessing!

Love the tote~

Wow! 15 years that's awesome. I'll be at 14 this summer. It goes by fast!

Happy Anniversary!!! Hubs and I celebrate #8 on the is in the air :)

I love your daughter's tote! Reminds me of when I used to live in FL - we'd go down to Port Everglades and watch the manatees. They're amazing creatures!

I'm sure you'll do great at your talk tomorrow!

Good luck on your talk, and congrats on your anniversary.

Tana said...

Happy anniversary! And your kitchen is just as gorgeous as the flowers! You know in Hawaii you can see giant manatee's washed up on shore. I think you should take your daughter as a field trip. I'm just saying.

Beautiful bag & flowers! I hope you had a wonderful anniversary with your husband!! :)

Katie Ganshert said...

How did it go?? Hoping it went wonderfully and you are happy to no longer be nervous...that was a weirdly written sentence, but you know what I mean. :)
