You are on my blogroll already!

 I guess having me on your blogroll is good luck! Meredith from Therapeutic Runnings of a Mom is our #1 winner. So pick your fave and then Kim from (Just) Trying is For Little Girls you'll get the other one! Here is what you are choosing from again.


Congrats ladies! Shoot me an email at tressaabe11 [at] hotmail [dot] com with your pick and addresses! As for what I have been up to this weekend, well I am hard at work in Santa's Workshop (aka my Dad's house.) I have been painting and decorating. About 10 years ago, my dad started making wooden figures to decorate his yard with, and it has since blown up and his yard is full of them. We all have fun coming up with new concepts, painting, and then proudly displaying them. Since a few of my sisters and I finally have our own places, we got to make our own this year. It felt like such a rite of passage. I will show you what work we have done so far, but it takes weeks to decorate my parents house, so we aren't even close to being done! I'll make sure to show you what it looks like when it's all done!

Coach really rocked that short and boots look!

Probably my favorite, the Island of Misfit Toys!
