Tonya – As a true southern girl I love a monogram on anything and everything! I have done my job in passing it on to my daughter to be the same way. :) Hard to pick a favorite but I’ll say pillows.
Michelle – hmmm it’s a toss up for the monogram – I always monogram my datebook, but I LUV monogrammed note cards
Pat – I already follow your blog! Anything monogrammed is special.
Emily – I love to monogram phone wallpaper and binder covers!
xo, emily http://www.preppywithpearls.wordpress.com
Celeste Harris – I read your blog all the time, but have just subscribed.
Jessica – I would monogram our lake house chairs. Nothing is better than sipping an ice cold beverage, looking over the lake in cute monogrammed adirondack chairs!
Ashley Gunter – My favorite thing to get monogrammed is little girls clothes.
Before I was taken down and out by that bothersome appendix thing (to put it lightly), I was planning to launch a brand new collection of absolutely fabulous prints in my preppy papers line!! The new blog look has been a sneak peek of sorts…
I had spent days designing, tweaking and finalizing seven new punchy prints and patterns, AND will be introducing calling cards and flat note cards to the line up as well! Think…
shake a tail feather
hold your horses
mix ‘n mingo
pineapple of my eye
on turtle time
Sounds fun, right?!?
To launch the line, I am going to do a huge SuRpRiSe giveaway for seven lucky readers!!! Each winner will receive an item in a pattern of my choice (it will be good, don’t worry!) with his/her monogram. The giveaway is open to US mailing addresses, and each reader can enter up to three times. I will announce the winner on Daddy-O’s birthday August 21. Here’s how to enter:
1. Subscribe to my blog by email using the form below and leave a comment letting me know. If you already subscribe, just leave your comment letting me know that!
2. For a second or alternate way to enter, follow me on instagram and leave a comment letting me know.
3. For a third entry, leave a comment letting me know your very favorite thing to monogram. I realize this will be hard as many of us slap a mono on anything not moving :-)
I just know y’all will adore these!!
Oh, and before I let you go, I thought I’d share a little update. Both of the boys were supposed to come home on the bus yesterday, but when Mother went out to meet it, neither of them were on it. I, of course, start freaking out. Mother was headed up to the school to see if they were still there and I insisted on going with her… just to sit in the car. I went in my pajamas, unshowered with hair standing on end and barefoot. Because, I was just sitting in the car, remember? Well, when she doesn’t come out after five minutes and I start to see the ladies that run the after school program running around outside on their walkie-talkies I FREAK. I haven’t walked more than from my bed to the sofa in the morning and back in the evening, but I pulled myself out of the car and stumbled inside. Barefoot. In my pajamas. Hunched over from the pain. I seriously cannot imagine what people thought. Mother sees me and is like “WHAT ARE YOU DOING?” I was so upset, sweating from the effort of walking and was crazy scared. Well, they found Whit in after school a few seconds later (long story on how that happened), but they still couldn’t find John. On a whim, I called a neighbor at the bus stop before us to ask if he had been on the bus and she says yes, and not only that, but John got off the bus with her son. I HAD told him he could play with her son the day before, but my intent was that he would come home as usual, have a snack, do homework and then play. I guess he misunderstood and just got off there (with no permission slip, mind you). Our trusted and loved bus driver of four years had also retired YESTERDAY so I guess the sub just didn’t know any better. UGH. Needless to say, I spent the rest of the afternoon and evening asleep. On a positive note, it got me moving a little, which the doctor said I should start trying to do. However, I had planned for my first foray into walking again to be a little jaunt to the kitchen, not a stumble across the school campus barefoot in my jammies. The best laid plans…
Hoping for a much more “normal” day today!
