Tick Tock Tick Tock...Time is Running Out!

This week really has flown by and this girl has been a busy blogger!!  I am TIRED and ready to just sit and veg for a while, but no time for that! I have a party to finish planning, throw and clean up after.  Tomorrow is the big day for the Strawberry Shortcake party for Miss Priss and we have lots to do.  So, this post will be short and sweet!
Here are my five highlights of the week...

(Giveaway Winner)

a Rafflecopter giveaway

We have a winnner for the Khloe's Bows Handmade Headbands giveaway!  Thank you all for entering this giveaway.  It was fun seeing all the entries and gaining some new friends.  Please check back as I have a few more planned in the near future!!  You will not want to miss this fabulousness.

(Miss Priss Turns Four)

My little Miss Priss turned four yesterday.  She had a wonderful birthday!! After a party at school complete with cupcakes, a new Happy Birthday headband from her teacher and singing she joined the Hubs, her Mimi and my nephew at the Hubs' work for lunch.  There the entire cafeteria staff sang Happy Birthday to her and gave her an M&M cookie ice cream sandwich!  

I then picked her up and took a special snuggle nap with her (this is her favorite and mine too).  We were off to gymnastics and baseball and then to dinner at her favorite place...CiCi's Pizza!  I would say that was a pretty great birthday for a four year old!  She loved every minute in the spotlight.

(Link Party Success)

Our first TBT link party was yesterday and it was quite the success for our first time! We ended up having 10 great posts linked up with some wonderful throwback pictures, stories and even songs!  If you haven't checked it out there is still time.  The party is open for another four days until we start it all over again!!! Go visit and link up.  We would love to have you.

(My Facebook and Instagram Likes/Followers hit 100+)


This was pretty monumental for me.  My Facebook and Instagram following hit over 100 in the same day!!  I would like to thank you all for your love and support on my blog and social media outlets.  To think just a month ago I thought I would never see those numbers and here they are and growing.  I love sharing with you all and also hearing your stories, tips, tricks, recipes and fashion advice.  So, THANK YOU!

(Influenster #TLCVoxBox)

Usually I hate snail mail...when you get my age all you receive in the mail is junk and bills.  You start hating the mail man!  The poor guy is just doing his job, but you despise seeing him and sometimes shoot him the evil eye as he slowly slides the mail in the box and closes the door...

BUT, this week I loved the mail man!  He delivered this beautiful purple box of goodies to me just for being a mom...well and an Influenster member! Hehe...

I can't wait to share my thoughts on all the items inside, including the gelato!!! I love gelato!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!  I know I will, but now back to work to get things done and then home to get more done!  Wish me luck and lots of energy.  Happy Friday friends.

  1. I am totes digging Miss Priss' headband... Does that come in my size?? ;)

    Happy Friday friend!

  2. What a great list of five things! I can't wait to see how her birthday party turns out. I just know you'll have the cutest decorations for it. I didn't get to link up yesterday, but I plan on it next week. I'm glad y'all had a great turn out! Happy Friday Tela!

    1. Thanks Mary. We can't wait to see what you link up! Happy Friday to you!

  3. Snuggle naps are the best!! I am always trying to convince my kids we need to take them, ha. I also can't wait to see all the pictures from her party. She is one lucky girl to have a crafty momma.

    Whoop Whoop for our link up success!!

  4. I"ll be glad to get a box from influenster that's not for a mom. Not everyone is lucky enough to have kids and so those that don't have kids should get something too. So i'm wondering if this is singled around just mom's.

    1. I understand you are frustrated at Influenster, but they are not just singled around moms. You have to have a pretty high social media score and do reviews and things. Make sure all of your social media is connected and that you are active in your badges by writing lots of reviews and stuff. I have plenty of bloggy friends who are not moms that have received VoxBoxes. Patience is a virtue... Just work hard on your reviews and wait. That is what I had to do. It felt like forever, but one finally came! Make sure you are a true "influenster" and make your influence on the world known. Nothing is truly "free" you still have to work for it. Good Luck!


Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me some love! I read and appreciate each and every one of your comments. They make my heart smile!! I will reply to them, it just may take me a bit. Please be patient and I promise to get back to you. I can't wait to chat!
