WhatJessLikes! (Congratulations!)

Thank you everyone for entering! I appreciate it! I will be doing a different giveaway next month. Stay tuned!

I have been writing this blog for two months. And I have learned some things. Such as, I should not write a post on a show no one has seen or heard of. Inside jokes do not go over well! I have so much more to learn.

Things Happening on My Blog This Month:

I will continue to do a weekly outfit post and recipe post. These are so much fun for me!

I will continue to post daily.

I added “It’s The Little Things”, which will run every Thursday. It will be about little things that make me happy or just little things. : ) That was my friend Kerri ‘s suggestion. Thanks Kerri!

I will also be adding a section entitled “Dear Children.” It will not run weekly, but only when I feel I have something to share with my children.

I recently learned my children are googling my blog. Which is sweet. Very sweet. But I would like to take this rare opportunity when my children are actually wanting to hear what I have to say. I have begun writing them letters about things I feel they should know. I am nervous about this, because I know some people will not agree with the lessons I am trying to teach them. And that is okay, but please humor this mommy with her words to her children.

And I will be taking out “Purchases” and just posting those items to “Outfits” or “Our House.”

Decorating is a passion of mine and I would like to post more about our house. We are also doing some home improvements around our home and pictures will be coming soon!

And now I would like take a moment to respond to your lovely comments:

Kerri: I had a lovely day with you! I cannot wait for pedicures tomorrow!

Tara: I love that you love sports. I wish I could be that girl. My husband took our daughter to a hockey game last year and they both said it was the most exciting sporting event they have gone to! Thank you for following!

Aetten: I am so intrigued by the pottery! What do you make? I love creative women. Thank you for following!

Teresa: Yay! I hope your day went well and you had a lovely Mother’s Day!

Katie: I hope your swim lessons went well! And The Hunger Games rocks!

KJ: Oh! I love Portland. It is so beautiful. I hope you had a wonderful day!

Alicia F: I hope you had a great time at Busch Gardens! It was perfect weather last week. Thank you for following my blog! I am so grateful!

Noelle: You are so, so sweet! Thank you for the kind words. I hope you had a great weekend with your family!

Brynne: Your comment was so beautiful. I could feel your enthusiasm through my tablet screen. I love that you appreciate the little things! Thank you so much for following my blog and the lovely comments. Enjoy your flowers and the gorgeous day! You have a great outlook on life!

Loraine: I hope you had a wonderful dinner with your family! My husband often works holidays (like this Mother’s Day), so I know exactly what you mean about celebrating on different days. Thank you for following me and commenting. It is very nice and I am very thankful.

Odilets: I loved your comment. So sweet! I will think of your family this Friday and imagine your family being reunited. Thank you for sharing. And thank you for commenting!

Amy: You are right! The clouds have been absolutely amazing lately! Incredibly pretty. You are a good mommy: twins and ice cream! So sweet! Thank you so much for your nice comments! They lift me up! Thank you!

Ashley: I hope your work week continues to be great this week! Thank you so much for following me! I appreciate it!

Katie Contests: I am partial to the rain, but I think that is because we rarely get it. And also, my dad is a beekeeper and they really need rain. But my husband is from Oregon and he informs me I would get sick of the rain very quickly. I hope you have sunny skies today! Thank you for following my blog! I appreciate it!

Suppkdogg: I hope you had a wonderful weekend with your beautiful family! I never get to see you. And I know it is my darn fault. So sorry! Thank you for being so supportive by following and commenting! You are a good friend.

Amanda: Hi! Thank you for following! I will pair the shirt with a gold pink polka dot skirt by Kate Spade that I snagged at Nordstrom Rack and jeans. So far I have only worn the jean version, because I cannot find the skirt. When I find it I will post a picture. Have a fabulous day!

Blooberrymuffin: I love your Mother’s Day story! So very sweet! I also love reading about your trips and fashion on your blog. You are one cool chick! Thanks for following my blog!

WhatJessLikes: Congratulations on winning! I hope your work week goes fantastic this week! Have a great day!

Pastelhell: I loved your romantic reply. So sweet. I hope you had a wonderful day together. Thank you so much for following my blog! I hope this week is just as wonderful for you!

Karen: Your reply was fabulous! I love a happy girl! Which skirt was it? I hope this week is equally great. I bet it will be, because you seem like a very positive person! Have a great day! Thank you for following!

Kristina: Nothing beats being poolside in pajamas! Well, maybe with a cocktail! I hope today is equally relaxing for you!
