Winner of House of 3!

For those that have tried my Strawberry Lemonade...I hope you enjoyed it as much as we do! Thank you to all those that stopped by and visited and entered the wonderful giveaway for House of 3! It is such an amazing business and whenever you need great vinyl wall art, blog backgrounds, fonts, or any whimsical know where to go.

A lot can change in just a couple of days.

My grandfather passed away on Sunday. I do know that he is in a better place. I have had a mixture of emotions and will have to share in another post more about this.

We finally have orders from the Air Force to move (yay!). The house hunting is on! Excited to start a new chapter in beautiful Colorado!!

My Aunt is coming for a day to see me and my family...haven't seen her in 16 years! Making some yummy chicken enchiladas (only Hatch green chili will do!), black beans and rice, and my favorite...guacamole for dinner tonight. Dinner is planned and I have to get done with this post and start cooking! :)

Mr. Wonderful will finally be back home on Friday after being gone for the last month (happy dance!). We are going to see " The Travelers Wife", when he gets back...I hope it is good! Our family will be celebrating another birthday this month for our son The Artist on the 29th...these kids are growing so fast!

There is also a winner for the $25 giveaway for Digital Kits!! So, without carrying on any longer..............

The Winner is, Traci from It's My Life!!!

I am so happy for you! Traci had 7 entries!! I know she really wanted this! I am excited for her to pick her fabulous designs and enjoy creating!! I will send you the code you will need to start shopping with Traci...have fun!!

I just want to tell you all from my heart, all of my friends here mean soo much! I am grateful for each and everyone of you...even those that visit and I have yet to meet. Reading your comments or following along with me on my blog always adds a smile to my face and brings happiness to my day! Thank all are wonderful!!

I know this post is short and the next Whimsy Spotlight has yet to be revealed. I will be posting a day late this week due to so many of those events I shared with you up above. I know once I have my husband back home this weekend, I will have a little more time to show many projects I have been working on. I am sure the next several weeks will go fast as we prepare to get things ready for our move. Thank you for being understanding on my late Spotlights. Make sure to come back by tomorrow to see who could be adding some "LIGHT" to your life, you don't want to miss out!

Have a blessed day and hugs to you!
