This weekend was stuffed like a grape leaf at a Greek festival. I’m paying Addie to support my head so I can type. The day started like this:

Cleaning up at 8 a.m Sunday. after hosting 105 people (75 of whom were children) the day prior, leaves you looking like an understudy for that Ring chick.

Then after Mass we hosted my family for Fulton’s fifth birthday.

Dress: Land’s End (De ja vu.)
Dining Table: Five starving children who I apparently only fed for the first time in several days.
Coffee Mug and contents: Mystic Monk

Lastly, I retreated to the couch, for five minutes of peace before working up the motivation to post. Thank you imitation Bailey’s.

But for you my readers, it’s worth it because I have an awesome giveaway to share with you. Check it out:

Who’s that pretty girl working the swing like a Children’s Place model? It’s my Edith enjoying a few humid minutes  in her new dress from Just 11 Stitches.

I hear what you’re saying, “Wait Kelly, I recognize that name. That’s where Grace got those sweet owl hats.” You’re right! And you get bonus points for a longer memory span than I. But maybe you didn’t realize that Erica is now making dresses. Three different styles to be exact and each one is guaranteed to make your daughter feel like a princess, minus the scratchy tulle.

The elastic waist makes the dress easy to pull on and the straps in the back can be tied as snug or loose as needed. Edie’s got years of growth built into this thing.  And while she wore a shirt under it for Mass, I’m already thinking how it’d be perfect for some fun photos on the beach.

But don’t take my word for it, enter my Rafflecopter giveaway for a chance to win either a Cosette or Emmaline dress. Impatient? Unlucky? Then just head right over to Just 11 Stitches and order today. While your daughter is deciding (or pleading for one of each) be sure to check out the rest of the lovely ladies at FLAP.

    I’m the first and only entry in the rafflecopter right now, so maybe you should just shut it down and do the drawing early . . .

    You are hilarious. I look forward to your WIWS posts so much because you’ve always got something funny going on, (That’s not to say you *have* to do something funny every time because that would be a lot of pressure. I’ve just enjoyed what you’ve done thus far, mkay? Okay.)

    Now, I simply MUST have that dress. Normally I am extremely unlucky, but I won aquarium tickets at the homeschool conference, today, so maybe I’ve turned over a new luck leaf?

    My 2-year-old is one of the cutest ever, so I should probably win on the merit of that, right? Because nobody else has cute kids! Just me!!!

    Very cute dresses. But I’m more impressed that you hosted so many people at your house in one weekend! I’m getting panicky just thinking about it.

    I’d love a Cosette! I have 4 little girls, so it would be a very well-loved hand-me-down. 🙂
