Sunshine Bound!

So, my big exciting news may really just be exciting to me. But it is. Tony and his mom arranged for a 5-day trip for me, all by myself, where I get to fly on an airplane to someplace warm. And Joan is coming up to stay with the kids. I get to relax. Renew. Read. Sleep in. And thaw out. I can't wait.

But I made a promise to myself that I would disconnect from the computer while I am gone, so there will be no blogging, emailing or blog visiting. Sorry. But I'll catch up when I get home and I hope this giveaway will make up for it.

On Monday, December 21st, my impartial 6-year-old will draw a winner of these:

A new Classic Scentsy Warmer (IN CREAM) with a block of Snowberry wax. Yum.


And this Christmas doorhanger made (with love) by me.


Now on to the rules. You can have up to two entries by doing the following:

1: Leave a comment on this post and then say something nice about the person that commented above you. If they don't have a blog or it is private, make something up. :-) (Thanks for the GREAT idea, Laurel!)

2: You can become a follower if you aren't yet and would like to be OR you can link directly to this post from your blog. Let me know in your comment and I'll add your extra entry.

Have fun this week, ladies!!

Oh my goodness!! How lucky for you! You deserve it.

I don't know "Anonymous", but I can compliment her for being very fast at commenting! :-)

Is subscribing through my Google Reader the same thing as being a follower? (Sorry, I don't know all the terms). If it is, then I am a follower!

Have SO much FUN on your trip! :-)

Heather has a super cute blog, and I would like to compliment her on the biceps she must obviously have after shoveling all that snow! Also, I left a comment on Her blog. Does that qualify for another entry? hee hee

:~D

Loralee and the gang... said...

And a getaway like that comes but once in a lifetime have a great time!

...you know I am a follower already, so I will try to remember to do a post link tomorrow.

Chocolate on my Cranium said...

How very sweet of them to provide this much deserved getaway for you!!

I don't know Loralee but she has a wonderful picture of her large (in numbers) family. And a son serving a mission to where my sister was just recently called to serve!!!

Rosanne said...

First off - good for you and your 5 day alone trip! Wow - enjoy it!

Second - I LOVE the door hanger! It would be perfect in our home...because we definitely believe! And I love Scentsy candles! Thanks for the chance to win.

Third - to "Chocolate" - I LOVE her blog and have checked it out quite often. Her children are all precious and she is a beautiful photographer!

Wahoo for you Amber!!! I totally know what it is like to "NEED" the sunshine! Living over here in England I don't get to see the sun much!! Oh, how I miss it!!! I will be thinking of you this week!

I was introduced to Sensy Candles by my neice!!! They smell absolutely gorgeous!!!! Would love to have one in my home as well as the door hanger.... Although all of my kiddos are grown - we ALL still believe! It's the miracle of the season!
Also, Rosanne has the most adorable family. She is also one of the nicest ladies I know! She is not only beautiful on the outside but she has a beautiful contenance!!! Lucky to have her as a friend! :0) Nancy

Rosanne said...

p.s. Amber, I posted a link on my blog. ;) Also, Nancy is so sweet...what kind words! And now that I'm posting again...and after Nancy, I must comment on her. She is awesome! She has a great smile and started me on a great path of a truly wonderful church calling. Yes, I'm still teaching RS! So the next commenter should really be commenting on Nancy...cause I snuck in here again. ;)

So, Shelly, you must be one of Amber's kind friends there in Washington. Thank you for being
so good to her.

Now, Amber, enter me in your fun
drawing.

Have FUN in sunny Florida.

Kristi said...

I don't need to be in the drawing- I already have an adorable Amber made This House Believes hanging by my front door! But I did want to say how awesome that you get to take a fun trip by yourself! I hope you have a fabulous time!

Lynn said...

Oh I am So excited for you! You totally deserve this special treat. Have a LOT of fun! Take lot's of photos. ; D

I don't know Kristi who commented above me......but I imagine she is such a sweet giving person, as she admitted that she already had one of the door hangers, but still took the time to comment. Now that's a sweetheart in my books! : D

Lynn said...

I am a follower!

The FOUR M's... said...

I think it's a sign... It's my turn to win... The word verification for this comment is "sentsc" Haha -- what are the chances!??!

Anyway, I would love to go on a getaway as well, but since I can't at the moment, have a fabulous time for me too! As for saying something nice about Lynn, I noticed she is from Canada (Eh!!) and since I am also Canadian, I'm sure she is totally incredible, kind, resourceful, creative, and able to withstand inhumanly freezing cold weather... (Minus 40 Celcius today!! BRRRRR!) I also think it's super fun that all her kid's names start with the same letter (our family too!)!!

The FOUR M's... said...

Oh, And I'm posting to my blog as well... Sorry -- the post-pregnant brain prevents any kind of multi-tasking-type thoughts from occuring... haha.

Jennie said...

I am so glad I get to post after Melissa!
She is an amazing mother and friend. I've known her practically her whole life and she is a fun wonderful person to be with!
....And she is the reason I know about this giveaway!

kathleener said...

hurray for you! you're so lucky to get away...and to a warm spot!

let's see..."jennie" is very good at giving compliments and is probably a very good friend!

have a great time!

Jeni said...

Well I think you should be there!!! Enjoy to the max!

I looked at Kathleeners blog...one special lady, about to have baby #3and the oldest is not yet 5. I try not to judge...but it always seems like the more children one has the nicer and more caring they are.

Lisa said...

Yay! I'm now an official stalker...er.....follower! And I have never thought of gray walls, but great call Jeni! I love your taste!

Anonymous said...

Lisa has a cool picture of home grown carrots!

I love strawberries!!!!

Taylor Family said...

I don't know what to say about someone anonymous, so I'll say I got this from my friend Melissa Atwood's blog. Does that earn her another entry?

Anonymous said...

love the doorhanger - so cute!

it was so nice of the taylor family to try to help their friend get another entry - 'tis the season of giving! :)

i'd like to become a follower if i can - let me know. i keep you in my favorites - does that count?

Courtney

Cherie said...

What a fun giveaway!! Enjoy your wonderful trip. I hope you are having a relaxing time!

Courtney seems very thoughtful also for noticing that in the person before her. Happy Holidays!

Jana said...

I've never entered anything like this before, so thanks for the opportunity. Also, have a fun time on your getaway. I don't know Cherie, but she has beautiful eyes and a really genuine smile. Merry Christmas everyone!!

JaeJay said...

I love Scentsy! I hope you have a Merry Christmas Jana! You have a pretty name.

JaeJay said...

I am now a follower in Google reader.

Rachel said...

JaeJay... Your blogs are private... but I'm sure they're awesome because you like Hilary Weeks! I've been listening to her Christmas CD all week! I LOVE Scentsy and would love to win! Pick me!!

JoAnn said...

Rachel's profile is not available but she said she like Hillary weeks and that means she has a great taste in music! because I LOVE Hillary weeks too!

The Toronto Family said...

and I just became a follower by adding you to my google home page! (I think that is how it works right to get another entry?) glad you had a GREAT time on your trip!

Liz said...

So it's already Monday in Japan (actually it's probably already Monday in WA too, but you're still sleeping I hope). Anyway, so so glad you got to get away and enjoy some sunshine. Thanks for the little package of sunshine you sent my way, you have no idea how much it brightened my day (after I had a good cry!).

As for your little contest, I really love the idea of saying nice about the person who posted above you. I clicked on "The Toronto Family"'s profile and saw that she is the mom of 3 boys and a military wife. As a mom of three girls I can only imagine what it would be like to have three boys.. but she sounds like she is finding joy in the experience and I admire that!!

Alaina said...

A getaway....wow - that's so great.

Liz lives in Japan with her husband and gorgeous 3 little girls. I too have 3 children...but mine are boys! Merry Christmas Liz...you're so far from home, but so glad you have your precious family to celebrate with. Home is where the heart is.

Eloise said...

So, so very happy for you about your getaway! I expect lots of updates on GoodReads!

Alaina doesn't have a blog, but she does have a beautiful name. My hat is ever off to a mom of three boys!

Merry Christmas!

Charity said...

What a great way to spread some cheer. In looking at Eloise's profile I saw we share the same intrest in Traveling and one of my all time favorite songs- The way you look tonight (By THE Frank himself.)

Married 22 years?! That is in need of a congrats. My Red Flame (hes Russian) and I have just been married 4...Cant wait to have 22 under our belt!

Megalicious said...

Oh my goodness, Charity has two of the cutest girls I have ever seen (now that I feel like I am blog-stalking her) and an awesome name as well!!! I am sure that she has some mad mothering skills!!!

Bonnie B. said...

Fun for you!!! Hope you had a fabulous time!

Megalicious....what an awesome name! We have a little bit in common. She's a dietician who is obsessed with food. I'm a nurse who really likes to eat food. And from the looks of her blog, she has some mad skills! Nice.
