Shabby Apple Giveaway!! (Winner Announced!)


Update: Winner chosen via random.org:



Commenter #4 (oh, how I love it when a little number is chosen...less counting that way! Lazy much, Mama?) ;)...Allison, email me and I'll get you the details for what Shabby Apple needs to get your dress out to you!

Original Post:

Have you heard of Shabby Apple?

Or gotten a peek at their classy women's dresses? I die. Much. They are such gorgeous dresses that when Shabby Apple approached me about doing a giveaway I jumped. Sure, I had a pang of jealousy 'cuz what I actually wanted was a dress for myself, but giving away one to one of YOU is just as much fun!!

I LOOOOOOOVE that their dresses have such a vintage look to them. So, "Donna Reed-ish"...you know, the kind of dresses that ladies of '50s vacuumed in?! ;) I had a hard time deciding which one to giveaway...so I went with the "Boogie Woogie":


An elegant, yet casual-ish LBD that I think would look smashing on just about anyone!

So...wanna know how to enter to win this fabulous dress? Okay, here are the deets:
You must "Like" Shabby Apple on Facebook (only "requirement") and leave me a comment telling me you did so.
For a second entry, tweet the following phrase: I just entered to win a fabulous Shabby Apple dress from @5crookedhalos! http://fivecrookedhalos.blogspot.com/2012/03/shabby-apple-giveaway.html

And never fear! If you aren't the lucky winner, Shabby Apple is offering a 10% discount for my readers using code mylittlelife10off at the checkout!

Rules, disclaimers and other stuff:
Giveaway will close Sunday night at 11pm. Winner will be announced Monday morning. There are no exchanges for the winning dress. Dress will be shipped to winner directly from Shabby Apple. This giveaway is sponsored by Shabby Apple. I did not receive compensation of any kind.

Our Colorado Trip

One week ago today, I had skied myself down a mountain (several times) and survived.

Oh, you guys...Colorado has captured my heart. I loved our vacation like you wouldn't believe and while I am not (nor will I ever be) a world class skier (let's be honest, greens are where you'll find me...and I won't be whizzing down them, either!), the mountains and the skiing and the fresh air and the walking everywhere? I grabbed a hold of me and doesn't seem to be making any moves to let go!


Check out this view from our hotel room!!


I just told someone today, "If I had had my kids with me, I'm not sure I would've come back." I felt so healthy and vibrant and alive...ugh, I wanna go back!

Funny story, the first evening we were in Beaver Creek, we walked down to the village and I got my first real look at the ski runs...I thought, "Huh. They don't look so bad." and we went about our business and had supper and went ice skating and tucked ourselves in…

Sludge.

Grief...it's like a thick sludge, hard to wade through, difficult to know which way is up, feeling like you'll never get out of it.
Today was a rough day. I'm not sure if it was just setting in, or that grief coupled with today being Baby Girl's and my birthday, was just a bad combination, but whatever it was, I found it hard to keep the tears at bay.
Just when I thought I'd have it pulled together, I'd hear or read the words, "I'm sorry", or field a phone call, or think about the amazing outpouring of love and support...and the tears would flow. Fast and furious.
I've discovered that my rock, my strength, comes from being around family; specifically, my husband. When I'm alone, the thoughts and memories coming flooding in and the tears come pouring out. My brother-in-law, Verd, was an amazing man. Actually, "amazing" doesn't even do him justice, I wish I could find a word great enough to describe the kind of man he was.

My heart…

What I've learned.

Tomorrow marks the return to a "new reality" for our family.
After a couple of good days, I know everyone is apprehensive about what tomorrow will bring. I guess we'll just have to see.
This past week has taught me a lot...not the least of which was how many lives my brother-in-law had touched. Over 2,500 people waited in line, each for about 2 hours, to pay their respects to him at his wake. I was blown away...we were ALL blown away. At his funeral, the church held more people than it had ever held before...Christmas mass and Easter Sunday included.
Our priest was even amazed.
I also learned, probably most importantly, just what an amazing family I married into. Just how wonderful they all are, how strong they all are, how faithful they all are. As I spent this week "disconnected", I realized I was more connected than I had ever been...to my family.
I learned that the things that matter most in life are those that can't have a value placed on them. It's no…
