Some exciting news today on a couple of fronts!  The second issue of House of Fifty online magazine was released today and I’m featured in the “Blogs we love” section.  Lakeitha of Home to 3 Duncan Boys and House of Fifty editor and I met during the Nicholas House project.  She had the room next door to mine.  We hit it off right away.  I was thrilled when she asked to include my little blog in HOF.  The first issue was fabulous and the second issue is even better!  Check it out here.

My other big news of the day is my 1st giveaway!  I’ve been doing some online shopping while trying to tackle that to do list I created here the other day.  I ended up in the home decor section at  It’s no secret that I love Target and I am always impressed with the different collections they come up with throughout the year.  There’s always something for everyone and that got me thinking about you, lovely readers.

Which collection would be your favorite?  Would your fav be the same as mine?  If not, why?  So, I decided to whip up an inspiration board for each collection.  You choose your favorite, tell me why and then try and guess my favorite.  Once you’ve made your choice, shoot me a comment and you’ll be entered into a drawing for a $100 gift card from Target to use however you please!

How easy is that?  (and fun too!)

If you’d like a couple of extra ways to enter, feel free to tweet, blog or Facebook about this giveaway.  Just remember to send me another comment letting me know that you did it!  The giveaway will run for 1 week, so be sure to tell your friends!

So pretty, right?  Remember to pick your favorite and guess my fav too!  I can’t wait to hear from all of you!  Good luck!!
