• 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 worked 2 jobs to support us and never said no to driving any of us 4 children wherever we wanted to go.

    My dad inspires me to keep on going because one day on short notice my dad forgot his camera at he didn't want to leave the house but the camera was important so he drove back to work. So even though my dad did not want to back to get the camera he still went.

    My Dad taught me to be an independent woman. He showed me basic car mechanics and household repairs. Stating, "You can't alwayrs rely on others." Thanks Dad!

    My dad has always inspired us to be better and kinder than before. Our spare bedroom usually had someone staying in it that needed a home and a family. He is also a really good woodworker so he has instilled in me from the time I was young, that if you can't find what you are looking for, make it yourself! He is the best rolemodel I could have ever asked for.

    My dad is one of the best men in my life or I have heard of for that matter. I think the way he has inspired me most is to be a hard worker (he works 10 hours a day and has for most of his life), enjoy time off, take care of people, and act silly whenever necessary. My mom and dad have been married for over 36 years so they have a lot of experience to glean from for my very new wedded self!
    I will always be a daddy's girl and my heart hurts to think of him getting older and not being in my life or his future grandchildren's. I love him for the incerdible man he is and made sure I fell in love with. He is loving but will never settle for second best. Lyal to a fault and always making crazy jokes. Anytime I need some advice or him to jump on the road and take 4 hours to get to me, I know he will do it in a heartbeat. That's my dad, like I said, one of the best men I know!

    My Dad showed he loved us every day, even if it was hard for him to say. His support, advise and common sense attitude were and are a huge part of how I have tried to raise my own children. I remember the Father's Day the year my parents divorced when I was 20, he recieved a stuffed gorilla from my Mom-it was just like the one he had just given to his first born great-grandson; my much older brother's first grandchild. This animal became my dad's constant companion, going on roadtrips across the country to visit my sister and I, and even around town! Dad passed away 10 years ago, when my first son was just over a year old. Dad told me he wanted "Jasper" to be my son's. They would have had so much in common, but it's so special to me to watch my son with "Jasper", and know that Dad is with him too.

    My Dad is the proud father of 5 girls – yup i said 5. He wished too hard for boys and ended up with 5 strong women – each able to stand on their own and support themselves and their families. Emerson said : " to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. " That is my Dad!

  8. Denise T. says:

    My step-dad was a great guy and tried to make all three of us kids feel special. He'd take us separately out on unexpected "dates"-like showing up at school to take us out to lunch. That's a very nice memory…

    I miss my dad so much. He always took care of my mom and my two other siblings. My dad loved the lord and now he is with him. My mom went to be with him not too long ago and I know he was real happly to see her. My dad worked when he could hardly stand. I am so proud of him and always will be. My best father's day is the ones to come, because I have my memories to comfort me and I know he is there.

    My Dad, my hero. My father, who turned 81 this year, is absolutely incredible. He and my mother have been married for 59 years. Unfortunately 6 years ago, my Mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. He has worked so hard all of his life (his parents both passed away when he was very young)now his full time job is taking care of Mom. I know though, he wouldn't have it any other way. She is truly the love of his life. His patience with her and dedication to her is simply amazing to me. Through it all, he has maintained his sense of humor and has proven to me that chivalry still does exist. He is one of kind and means the world to me.
