• Tell Your Friends

We’re down to our 2nd to last Giveaway from our friends at PartyLite.  Last week’s Coast Lights set went out to Kelly G. with her answer:

The things in my house I am most proud of are the ultrasound photos I had framed after having my children. I was able to pick out some pretty, stylish mats and frames, and they are very cool, personal, and fun conversation starters!

This week we’ve got a set of 3 PartyLite Blue Waves Candle Holder with a box of tealights to go with them.


All you have to do is comment on this week’s question with a valid email address before Monday Night @ Midnight Eastern.  We’ll pick a random winner from all of our comments. Its that simple!

With Father’s Day this weekend, we want to hear about your dad. How did he inspire you? What are some of your fondest Father’s Day memories?

If you’re still looking for that perfect gift, check out some of Elizabeth’s recommendations.  Camille also offered up some ideas.

Have a great weekend everyone!

    My dad was a "Father of the 50"s" so to speak. He wasn't terribly demonstrative but he let his 2 little girls shower him with kisses, hugs and affection. We were his 2nd family and he was 44 when I, the oldest, was born. He seemed to like it when he made us laugh. He expected and received a lot of respect. We thought him very handsome and charming. We always strived to make him proud of us. We lost him when we were teenagers and when I think of him 40 years later I still see the smile "crinkles" around his eyes.

    I was 10 years old and still slept in my parents bedroom. It was decided that I needed to move into my own room. My first night in my own room, my daddy sit in a chair in my room and every time I would wake up my daddy was sitting there to calm my fears and to protect me. What an awesome father he was.

    My family photo's are my keepsakes.

    My Dad showed me what being a Dad meant. He made sure we always had our basic needs but never were we spoiled or "given everything". He always advocated for us to earn our way through life whether it be school, our job or social areas. We were taught to be responsible to ourselves and to others around us. What a real lesson of life!

    The thing that means the most to me in my home are art projects made by my 2 grandsons, Dylan and Jacob. They have a great imagination!

    My Dad was a cowboy,I remember Jr.Rodeo was always in june and he'd be out there on his big white horse named Trojan picking the bronc riders off the bucking horses when the whisle blew,I was so proud to be his little girl.

    My Dad was a kind and caring person and he taught me that you have to work hard in order to have anything out of life. And he taught me that parents are to love their children and help them if they try to help themself.

    The one thing I am most proud of is the work that I put into making my bedroom a sanctuary.

  9. Jennifer Pacheco says:

    The one thing in my home I am most proud of? 4 painting my son did when he was 2 years old. They are 16×20 on canvas and we had them framed in very fancy frames. When people come to my home they are immediatly drawn to them and ask where I purchased them. I love the looks of delight on their faces when I say Tiegan painted them! I love looking at them everyday, and Tiegan likes to randomly tell strangers in the grocery store "I'm 3 and I'm an artist."

    How did my father inspire me? My father was with me for only 15 years, but he left very strong memories during that time. He was a very caring man, who thought of others first. He loved to laugh and play jokes. As an adult now, I see just how much he did for his family, without any complaints.
