• 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!

    When I was growing up, I thought my dad could do anything. We lived on a farm and there was always something that needed fixed. The car, pick-up, tractor. The dishwasher, washing machine, the irrigation well, my bike, you name it. He also could build anything and there was always a project of some kind in process.

    One winter we built a chicken coup in the shop, on top of some railroad ties. When spring came, Dad hooked it up to the tractor and pulled it out into the farm yard. We filled it with baby chicks. That was one of the most fun projects we ever did together.

    He and my mother were always working on our house, too. They built it themselves when I was about seven. They did everything except lay the concrete foundation. I don't think it is ever quite finished, this year they plan on adding a screened in porch.

    My dad is semi-retired now, but he's never out of projects. He is currently building a spring wagon for his horses out of pieces he picked up at an auction.

    I'm now almost forty, and have my own home and own projects. And I still think my father can do anything (and call him quite often for advice).

    My dad is a psychiatrist and he inspired me to go into the mental health field- I became a social worker! I love when we get together and can be goofy (he is the COOLEST psychiatrist I know) and yet also sit and talk for hours about cases and intrigues. My dad really is the smartest person I know, I love him to pieces!

    I don't remember my dad, he was killed in an automobile accident by a drunk driver when I was two years old.

    I have no fond memories.

    All I can remember is, my aunt told me that at the funeral she was holding me in her arms and once I saw his body I turned away and wouldn't look again.

    The best thing I learnt from dad was discipline & being organized. He is a person who had started his business from scratch and moved up in his life as a good successful business man. The pains he went through teaches me to be a strong hardworking person like him. One thing I remember about my dad is – Once when he was upset about something & angry, he just yelled at me for no reason. The next day early morning he had to leave to a different state, so he woke me up like 5ish in the morning & said sorry to me. That was very surprising. I never ever expected a sorry from him. that bought tears in my eyes & his. He also taught me to forgive & leave no regrets. I LOVE MY DAD A LOT. He is so far away from me, it takes alomost 30 hrs flight for me to reach him. I get to meet him once in 2 or 3 years.

    my dad just takes care of things. like when i had not put the tags on my car he just took care of them. i don't have to let him know i need help, he just does. he also loves his dogs more than his older "children", and so do i.

    Fondest memory of my Dad was the nite my younger brother was born~when Daddy came home from the hospital, he allowed my older brothers and I to sleep w/him~I close to his heart w/my head on his chest and a brother in each arm pit.I somehow knew w/the arrival of a new baby, that that was my last chance to ever get that close to Daddy's heart.

    My father is a man who I was not born to but I was birthed in his heart. He taught me what it is to have someone believe in you. His wisdom has carried me through tough times and the best of times. And even though we are miles apart he is always just a phone call away. He gave me hope and helped me to look toward a brighter future.

  9. Cherlyn Jackson says:

    My greatest memory of my Dad was the day he died…the last words he uttered were, "Lord I'm ready, you can come for me now". As he smiled and closed his eyes and died I was overcome w/joy in knowiung that he had found a greater peace than this world could have ever given him.

    I loved reading all the beautiful tributes to the wonderful fathers. We are all so fortunate, what could I add. My dad is in there, too.
