an excused absence & giveaway options

Oh readers, I have been absent the last few days, but I have a GOOD reason!

My aunt, uncle and their 3 girls stopped by on their drive around the country. It is so wonderfully nice to see family once in awhile... it really makes you feel like you are loved and NOT forgotten. I love visitors!

Anyway, I've just been busy with preparing the house and then they were here Monday evening, Tuesday all day and just left this Wednesday morning.

With the FREE babysitters, Ryan and I were able to go out to dinner alone one evening. We all spent time wandering Old Town and also went to see the Pirates movie (finally) in 3D.

It was just nice.

In other news... I'm thinking of a new giveaway. Perhaps when I reach 75 followers I'll give away a prize worth $75. Or I can wait until 100 followers and do one for $100. What do you think? There are several things I'd include. One of them might be the lovely gathered clutches or zippy pouches from my "in real life" friend moxiemandie. Possibly something from Scentsy and possibly something handmade by me (TBD). I might include some New Mexico lovelies as well.

Let me know what you all think.



  1. So glad you enjoyed your time with them! What did you think of the new Pirates?

  2. It looks like I wasn't following you! No worries, I definitely am now. Thanks for commenting on my blog.

    It sounds like you had a great time. I am always up to enter a giveaway! I say go with what feels good. I will enter for anything :)

  3. Sounds delightful and I'm glad you got to spend some time with family!
