What we have in common ... we both live in the south and I've been to Alabama lots of times. Does that count? It would be better for me to say what we don't have in common, like I have 2 girls and you have 3 boys. Anyway, my order of preference would be: #1 soy candle (I'm addicted to these.), #2 body butter, and #3 hurricane. Thanks for the chance to win.

What do we have in common you ask, well we both have boys!!

I like the hurricane, the cookbook and the candle.

I like body butter but I usually end up not using it.

This is a great concept. I hope to get to pay it forward! ; )




I won one of Take90West's three Pay It Forward Giveaways! I've shown my loot above. She knows me well... I need a Better [Homes &] Garden because all my flowers are dead and then there are the mints with my name on them... can she smell my breathe all the way up north? Just kidding! :) The fish candy is GONE! The chocolates GONE! The pens and paper are already at work making lists. The mints are in my purse and my lips are saying "Thank you, Lisa!" I loved getting my package in the mail and now it's my time to pay it forward!



I have five items that I'm going to offer, but only three will be given away. This way even the last winner will have a choice between a few items, too! As you may already know, 4 out of these 5 are retired Southern Living at HOME items... I'm a consultant in my spare time. Ha! :) Anyway, let me tell you a little about these items.

On the back row, we have

Everyday Menus: 281 Deliciously Simple Weeknight Recipes. Every page has at least one picture, although not every recipe has a picture. This book is brand-new, but not wrapped in cellophane because, well, honestly, I wanted to look through it first. :)

Sassy Wall Sconce: I didn't want to take it out of the box because it is packaged so nicely. This is what it looks like (minus the artichoke on top). It's sort of a cranberry color. For indoor use only. (8" x 4 1/3" x 13 3/4"tall).


Then in the center we have the Small Kensington Hurricane. This is a single piece; the glass does not remove from the bottom. The bottom is made of resin and is a golden wheat color. Food safe, water safe, and candle safe. (5 1/2" x 5 1/2" x 9 1/2" tall).


In the front left of the picture is SLAH's soy based candle in the scent Jingle Bells. I really can't believe I'm giving this away because these are so hard to find and this is my absolute favorite scent, but I just don't burn candles anymore. I can best describe the scent as citrus, clove, and a bit of vanilla - I think. It's not just a Christmas scent - don't let the name fool you.


The final item has no affiliation with SLAH whatsoever... but I LOVE body butter! I got this at Walgreens and you can read customer reviews here. It is called Yes to Carrots body butter. Unopened, sealed jar.


After writing this post, I feel like I'm listing on eb.ay! Sorry for all the details, but I want you to be happy with your choice - should you win...I tried to have a little bit for everyone, house stuff, candles, body stuff, cooking... I hope there is something you would like to have so you'll enter my giveaway!


Here are the rules:

1. US residents only; sorry, I just can't afford shipping costs right now.
2. Bloggers only because you have to be able to pay it forward in a blog post.
3. Upon winning you must have your own giveaway, after all this is a pay it forward event! :)
4. To enter, leave a comment on this post. HERE'S THE CATCH: In you comment, tell me something that we share in common... just for fun! :) Then, tell me your top three choices from the giveaway in the order of your preference. Both of these "catches" must be included for your name to be in the drawing.
5. I will randomly choose 3 winners next Wednesday. That gives you 1 week to enter!


Now, go tell your bloggy friends there's a girly giveaway over at Boys Rule My Life!!!

OK - I'd loves to have me those goodies but I don't have anything cool to pay forward with. I'm not very creative. :P

I know something we both have in common - our HOTTIE HUSBANDS! :)

Is it too late?

The thing we have in common is that I like soy candles too (I make my own, check out my blog)! I also have 3 kids (but they are all girls, not boys).

My order of preference would be, #1 recipe book, #2 sconce #3 hurricane

Great idea on the "pay it forward" giveaway
