Much Ado About Monday {No. 23} and a Giveaway!

Good Evening Friends! 

I hope you've had a fabulous weekend! Like everyone else, our family has been getting things ready for school to start. I've been gathering things to make sure my kiddos are ready for their first day (which is not until September, but still!). My oldest is starting pre-school and my baby boy is starting his one day a week at Mother's Day Out, *sad face* It's scary that we are already thinking Kindergarten even though we have two years. Nothing like planning ahead, right? :) 

Do you have any kids starting school soon, or making the jump from 
elementary-middle-high school?

If you haven't checked out our Friday Features, yet, head on over and check them out! They are amazing (as always)!

This week is the final installment of our awesome Summer Giveaway Series! 


For our last week of prizes, Lydia has teamed up with her truly talented cousin Karissa of Karissa's Creations to give one lucky winner the necklace (or earrings) of their choice. Karissa makes beautiful and unique jewelry that is simply stunning. From vintage inspired pieces, to necklaces based on favorite movies and books (like The Notebook, Harry Potter or Hunger Games), she has an amazing collection of handmade, heartfelt jewelry. And you get to pick your favorite!

Aren't all these pieces fantastic? I am making my own wish list right now (it's never too soon to give the hubby Christmas gift ideas, am I right?). To enter to win, simply use the Rafflecopter below. The winner will be announced next Monday so be sure to check back to see if you are the lucky one!
