It's Monday after vacation......nuff said!

To say that I am having a hard time getting motivated today would be an understatement!!!

We had an awesome weekend in Memphis (pictures posted on FB) and seeing Wicked was the cherry on the top!!! It was amazing! The best part was hearing my youngest son ooooh and aaaah and laugh out loud throughout the production!!


I thought I would edit yesterday's post with the pictures....but am too tired!! so sorry.

However, I want to make an announcement........

I AM SO LAME!

Yesterday, was our 1/2 way through point on Project 365.........and I MISSED it!!!

I am going to blame being on vacation (it's a good and valid excuse.....it is!) and being frustrated with the slow internet at the hotel (also a valid and good excuse!). However, I had promised, in this post, a giveaway. And not just any giveaway, but a super dooper giveaway.

So here's the deal.........next week will kick off our 2nd half of Project 365. I will be drawing a name from all those that link up and that lucky person will win..........

........are you ready?!!!!


a $20 gift card to Blurb!!!!


yep, I promised super dooper and I think that fills the bill!!!

There are some rules that apply......

....ok, just one. This must NOT be your very FIRST post on Project 365!!

I want to encourage everyone to start this project any time you can....it is wonderful!!! BUT, I want to reward those of you that have really committed to this (even if you joined us part way through!) I looked back at the first posts of this project and we had over 20 people that started with us. On yesterday's post, 13 people linked up. I know there are a few of you that have kept up but didn't link up yesterday too.......those percentages are pretty great!!!

It hasn't always been easy remembering to take a photo every day....and I think most of us have missed at least one day somewhere along the way.....but it has been one of the best projects I have ever been part of! I love it!!

So, keep that camera close at hand this week!!!! And be sure to link up next Sunday!!!

Things have been so hectic for me I may just miss my birthday this year. So missing the half way point is understandable. Welcome back from Vacation.

We forgive you for missing one day. You're not lame.

Mama Belle said...

I think you're excused. Vacation must take precedence over blogging.

Now, you've convinced me to see "Wicked."

Debra said...

So happy that y'all had a great vacation, it sounds like you had some fun family time together! I've not even heard of "Wicked," so I'll have to check it out.

H-Mama said...

I agree... you're excused. Sounds like you had a great time!

Darla said...

i think that was a great excuse for not remembering...i don't normally link up, i just forget to do so...sorry. i will do better in the future, but i have SOOOO enjoyed being part of this project as well. it has made me pay attention to everyday stuff that is worthy of remembering.

Love the pic of you and the kids. Big deal if there was no time. There needs to be ne excuse from you-you were having family time. I have loved everyday of the event. Can't wait to see what the next half will be. Thanks Sara!!!

Wicked!!!
I really wanted to se that, but it was here right before christmas and since that is the WORST time for use to spend money...I got to see Jersey Boys and The Color Purple instead.
That is a great picture of you and the "kids".

no harm, no foul! It's your website...no apologies needed :)

What did you think of WICKED??!!
we LOVED it...
not gonna give it away, but if you haven't seen it, you need to go see it!!

Dena said...

You're entitled to brain "fog". It shows what a really great vacation you had! :)

I'd love to see your pictures on FB, but I can't find you to add you as a friend. Will you be posting some on here too?

Dena said...

Never mind....I found you. :) What excuse can I have for brain fog? LOL

Ashley Vincent said...

OOOOO! I have 4 books that need to bought. My best one is my Photography book for Blurb. 29 would halp I am right there.


And you are not lame. Vacationing is exactly that- getting away from everything you normally do. And you normally never miss a week. So, I am giving the pass for this one. it is ok. WE ALL FORGIVE YOU!

I blame more and more things on "gray moments" (since I can't have blonde ones any more). You could also blame it on the heat. Or your cat (do you have a cat?).

Glad you had a good trip; sounds like loads of fun. I've been to TN many times (that's where my daddy was from) but never to Memphis.

Have a great week!

(And don't worry about being unmotivated -- it's SUMMER [there at least])

Have just discovered your wonderful site! May I join in with the 365 project now or do I have to wait for some particular next start date?

I tried to guess what you all are doing in the pics in Memphis. Can't wait to hear what you are doing, actually.

Michelle said...

My daughter saw Wicked in NYC and LOVED it.

Jackie @ Our Moments Our Memories said...

Blurb??? Oooh, girl, you thought up a super dooper prize indeed. That is so awesome!

What a wonderful vacation - I am so enjoying all of your pictures. And I am totally craving onion rings right now.
