Hello lovelies! I’m sure you already know what day it is, but just in case…


First up, before I forget (again), the winner of last week’s Yancy Not Nancy CD/DVD giveaway is:

Heather Coddington

Check your email, lady, and get excited because your kids are going to LOVE you!

So, I mentioned how I’m not the best Pinterester in the world in yesterday’s Real Family Rules post (did you see ours? we’re a mess!).

But then I saw this:

And I thought, “Well now, I do believe I could spend lots of time on Pinterest to plan a free second wedding.” Heck, I see married women doing it all the time. Maybe they know something I don’t? I just start a 10th Anniversary Vow Renewal board and cross my fingers that the Pinterest money fairies have our anniversary date on their calendar. Riiiiiiiight.

In fact, I think I’ve got a few ideas for you to get some free bling for that perfect Pinterest wedding…

Maybe something a little like this?


moonstone earrings/gold vermeil pearl dangle earrings/Gold vermeil chrysoprase flower earrings/pearl and chalcedony flower necklace

All of those pretty pieces are from Novica, and they also have a great selection of Long Dresses and Skirts.

You could get any one (in some cases two!) of these with your $50 gift certificate if you win. Woot! If you’re not the in market for bling, Novica also carries bags, home decor, and a plethora of other fun, stylish finds.

Simply fill out the easy Rafflecopter form below and cross your fingers. a Rafflecopter giveaway

Oh, and a quick reminder to keep chomping away at your Project Elephant tasks. I’ll be showing you round 2 on Monday.

And now it’s time to link up!

Don’t forget to grab a party button so others can join in the fun (or just include a text link-back).

Oh, and don’t forget to follow along with all these other fun happenings:

Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram


  1. Good morning, Abbie! I do think I should have the opportunity to have another wedding! Hubby and I celebrated 37 years this summer. I didn’t really get to plan my first wedding – my mother did. Although she did a lovely job, it wasn’t me! Now I want my Own wedding. Perhaps I should do it for our 40th. And yes, I would marry him all over again! So, bring on the Pinterest posts for more – ahem – mature brides and grooms!
    Thanks for hosting – have a great weekend!

  2. Thanks for hosting, Abbie. I loved the “real” family rules. I could add a few to them too. How about ‘We always pick up after ourselves, except on days that end in “y”‘. Have a a super weekend!

I love hearing from you guys!
