Much Ado About Monday {No. 44}

Did everyone have a nice weekend?

We're hoping that all of our readers up North survived Polar Vortex #2! Here in Houston we had a bit of "winter weather"... no snow, but LOTS of ice! They even cancelled schools on Friday, which is unheard of in these parts.

(This is pretty accurate.. ha ha!)

Over the weekend the weather warmed up and both days were filled with sunshine and 60 degree temperatures! Unfortunately, my boys and I have been sick, so we chose to stay inside and nurse our colds. Hopefully we'll be able to get outside tomorrow for a bit of sunshine. :)
We have some exciting news we want to fill all of our loyal party-goers in on. Since we love you so much, you're the first to hear what we've got up our sleeve!

We're hosting a BIG Giveaway and we want YOU to participate!
