Whew I think I'm back!!

Whew!! Life has been insanely hectic since school got out last Wednesday. I seriously haven't even had time to think of a blog post since then. Luckily, I had the one for Father's Day already written and scheduled or else you wouldn't have seen anything from me for the last week!! I've got some pretty exciting things to talk about though!!

First off...DON'T FORGET ABOUT THIRSTY THURSDAY!!! I don't have a cohost for tomorrow so if anyone is interested email me at I can get the info to you as soon as possible. :) It's super easy!!

So, let me preface this with the fact that I literally have never won anything in my entire life. I can't remember a single time that I have ever filled out an entry and I have gotten anything more than a bunch of annoying telemarketer calls. 

Well, my friends, this week it all changed!!

Now, I almost didn't write anything because I don't want any of the other things I'm still in giveaways for to me jinxed. But I have to tell the last three days I have won 3 things!!! Well, actually, 4 because one thing came with two things. 

Sunday was a reallllllly long day. If any of you read my post about Father's Day you'll know I lost my dad when I was 19 and how difficult the process was. So that day is always a hard day. But to add on to that, Mike's mom, my mom, Mike, and I went house hunting. We found one we really liked, but also had to choose between buying a house and building a house. There was a ton of discussion, debate, and confusion and by the time I got home I was exhausted. Mike and I made his dad dinner and I got drunk. Then, later on, AFTER TRUE BLOOOOOOOOOODDDDD!!!! I checked my email and my life changed. 

If you haven't noticed I have been signing up for every single giveaway out there to win a Vino2Go or Brew2Go from The Product Farm. I even searched google to make sure I found all the blogs offering giveaways. Yes, yes, I know and it all paid off because I WON!!!!! Rachel over at With Love, Rachel had a giveaway to win both and I WON!!! Now, if any of you other giveaways choose me for another Vino2Go or Brew2Go please don't be discouraged. It's never fun to drink alone so I'm in need of one more of each. :)

On Monday we put an offer in on the house we liked. We're still waiting to hear back so we will see. It's way more house than we needed but the price was something we just couldn't pass up. I guess soon enough we'll have some rugrats running around that can help fill it up. Please pray, keep your fingers crossed, dream, wish, whatever, for us!! We seriously love the house and hope we get it.

At work on Monday I got a tweet from Ashley at Let's Get Bananas. No one ever tweets me so I got really excited and checked it out. 
I'm so excited for this because I can go on there and get some stuff for the cruise Mike and I are going on in August. I have been looking on there and can't make up my mind yet but you guys will totally know whenever I do!!!

And then.......yesterday, I got another tweet from Kisha at The Glamorous French Housewife!!!
I won this totally awesome apron that I intend on rocking the 'ish out of, hopefully, in our new house!!!

OK, so that's what I've been up to for the last however many days. Don't forget about Thirsty Thursday tomorrow!!
Hopelessly Ever After


  1. Woooo!! I feel winning comes in cycles! I won a bunch of giveaways when I first started blogging but haven't since haha

    (also I'm hosting an AMAZING giveaway tomorrow so come check it out! Duh, we'll be linked up with you!)

  2. Ahhh!! That's awesome, I'm so jealous of all your winnings!

  3. Congrats on the winnings girl!! I have never won a giveaway.

  4. Good luck with the house! Hurrah for giveaway wins!

    I actually listed the wine to go on my Thursday Thoughts tomorrow. I don't get it, there's wasted space where wine should be.

  5. Wow what a great week of winning! Congrats! (and maybe play the lottery?!)

  6. Cute apron and good luck with the offer on the house! I know the anxiety it causes but it'll all work out in the end :)
