Well, hello. It’s been a long time since my last post explaining things. I know. I can’t thank you enough for your messages, prayers, and encouragement. I have no doubt that they’ve pushed me to this point. I am nearly done with treatment (please, Lord), and I am less sick than I was a couple months ago. Of course, I’m not against continued prayers. I still have quite a road ahead of me, and I could really use them. Luckily, I have my moments where I think, “Hey, I could do a project right now.” It takes me twice as long, and I’m exhausted afterwards, but let’s see if I can’t get myself back into blogging, shall we? Forewarning—it may be a little sporadic.
Kirkland’s recently sent me this gaw-geous drink dispenser, so I worked a little summer table around it. Like, literally bought a new patio set. Maybe not FOR it, but the timing worked out well!
I’ve always wanted a drink dispenser, and this one is perfect! I placed it on the table at first, but my kids kept drinking the lemonade. And clinking wine glasses. Oookay.
Soooo I dressed the table with some other Kirkland’s purchases. Their outdoor living section had a ton of options I had been looking for! I’m a texture girl, so the placemats were a must. Cute, no?
And I think I have a lantern obsession. Round, short, silver, glass, wood—it doesn’t matter. They must be mine.
I don’t usually do involved table settings, so I kept it simple. My best friend lives in Florida, so I pick up shells every time I visit. And I steal sand from the beach. And then my husband throws away one of the bags. Ugh!
To celebrate the fancified table, we dined on pizza, breadsticks, and lemonade. As we were sitting there enjoying our feast (strong word for it, I know), my little one turned to me and said, “So Mom. Does this mean Just a Girl is back?” I guess so, little girl. I guess so.
So here’s the news you’ve probably been waiting for. One lucky winner will receive $250 (yikes!) to Kirkland’s. Using he Rafflecoptor device below, you just have to enter. What’s even better? My friends Sarah, Beth, and Traci (otherwise known as my people) are offering the giveaway as well! Stop by their blogs to see what they did to feature Kirkland’s products!
