A Retail Victory & Misc.

Y'all today I had a retail victory at Target. I got this super cute tin bucket for 75% off! I think someone had just returned it. The original price was $18.99 and I paid $4.74. I love a victory! I think it will be perfect for ice and beverages!


Be sure to stop by The Design Girl for the chance to win a deluxe blog makeover. She is hosting a raffle for New Day Foster Home, my favorite charity. 100% of money raised will go directly to the formula project. A lucky winner will receive a deluxe makeover, and a runner up will receive a pre-made template. Without the formula project many orphans in China would be fed water. Can you imagine? The New Day Formula Project is a great cause and it saves lives.

Today I had a surprise in the mailbox! In May I got an email from Pearls are a Girl's Best Friend letting me know I won her giveaway. I won this CUTE bangle bracelet for A. Tierney. I choose the white bangle and I love it! There was a delay in shipping because I moved and had a change of address. Thank you SO much, Pearls are a Girl's Best Friend.

Don't forget to stop by my blog tomorrow evening for my Pay It Forward Giveaway! You must be a follower to sign up. I'm off to Chuy's for dinner with some new girlfriends! Yum!!!

Now that's a cute bucket...even cuter with a monogram painted on it!
