Scholarship Opportunity

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of PBM Products for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Recently I posted the fantastic revelation that Walmart's Parent's Choice infant formula was EXACTLY the SAME as Enfamil and Similac?  Guess what else I just found from Parent's Choice?!

Parent's Choice will help one student and their family write an important chapter in their young lives with the launch of the Parent's Choice Infant Formula Savings Sweepstakes.  The sweepstakes, created in partnership with PBM Products, LLC. (also the creator of Parent's Choice puffs and solids), will provide one lucky winner with a $10,000 college scholarship in the form of a College Savings 529 Plan!

The Parent's Choice Infant Formula Sweepstakes started on June 15th and will run through August 1, 2011.

If you want more information, the rules and an entry form are all available at Parent’s Choice Infant Formula Savings Sweepstakes.

Parent's Choice Infant Formula is Walmart's private brand formula and you can find it exclusively at Walmart locations nationwide and online at

Now, if only MY Hunter was old enough to go to college. Wait, I don't want him to get older. Scratch that! We'll leave this awesome opportunity for older kids!

Moving Update and A Winner

Happy Monday Everyone! I hope everyone had a fun and (hopefully) cool weekend.
Mine was full of moving stuff to............OOLOGAH!!!!!!! Yep, Oologah, Oklahoma. I'm now calling it home.
As did this gentleman:
Will Rogers.
This is a picture of his home, which is actually only a few miles from my in-laws home.
For those who guessed Claremore, you are wrong! His hometown is Oologah, but he told everyone his hometown was Claremore, because no one outside Oklahoma would be able to pronounce Oologah! BTW: you fellow Okies should have known this! lol
So........the winner of the "guess where I'm moving to" is:

My Neck O' The Woods - Granbury, TX

Hi Friends! it's Tuesday, so I'm linkin up with those RHOK ladies!
THE hunter and I just got back from a super quick jaunt down to Texas and back. We literally left at 4am Friday morning and got home at 9pm Saturday night! Lots of riding in the car for me.
The drive really wasn't too bad, but of course THE hunter wanted to stop at the haven of all hunters: Cabelas!!!!
Hit Cabelas in Fort Worth and then another hour or so down to Granbury!!!! Yay!
Got to the wedding of one of my most favorite Texas chicks in the whole wide world, Madelline and her now hubby, Robert, where I was roped into being the photographer which was cool and all, but it was 110 degrees down there! It's Texas in July people! H-O-T!!!!!! I had sweat running down places that sweat has no place to run....unless you're running, but honestly I didn't see too many people outside running in Texas. Hmm.
Ok, anyway, I didn't get to take any pics of my own from the wedding except for this one of me and THE hunter at the reception.
Saturday morning I drug THE hunter to Granbury's awesomely fabulous Square!!!! I love the square. I could move my whole family to Texas so that I can be close to the Square. I could live at the square. I have been dreaming of going back to the Square ever since I left it the Summer of 2006.
They just have the cutest shops for anything and everything you could possibly want or need! Cookin stuff, antiques, clothes, salsa, ice cream, wine, quilting stuff, sports stuff. Just everything!
Here's the courthouse in the middle of the Square. It's under construction at the moment.
Here's a couple of the beautiful homes just off the square.
I asked THE hunter if I could have one. He said no. He's so unreasonable.

My Neck O' The Woods - Quilting

Happy Tuesday Everyone! It's that day of the week where we link up with those cool chicks at the Real Housewives of Oklahoma for In Your Neck of the Woods!
My bestie, Calianna, and I have been plotting for months about making identical quilts out of Moda's new line, Strawberry Fields. I just love it! It's just so 50's colored and strawberry-ish! Makes me oh so happy!!!!
Anywho, we finally got all our fabric in for our quilts and we planned a Girls Only Saturday for us to get together and start cutting out all the pieces. Luckily, my mom was nice enough to let us converge on her house (which was boy-free, except for my dad, the cat, and the dogs) to eat, cut, and sew.
Of course, we couldn't make a strawberry quilt without eating some strawberries, so my mom cut us up some with a dab of Cool Whip to munch between cutting!
Here's Calianna (who is appropriately colored for the occasion by the way) cutting her little heart out!
We started cutting out fabric for two queen size quilts at 11:00 AM. By 6:30 PM we still weren't done cutting, but Calianna had to go home to her boys. I kept cutting until 10:00 PM and I STILL wasn't finished cutting, but I was so exhausted from standing at that counter all day that I just quit and went to bed. The next morning I got up and spent another good hour cutting to finally finish up all the cutting! It's c-r-a-z-y how many pieces are needed for these stinkin quilts!!! But they're gonna be sooooooo pretty when they're done and we'll have matching quilts!
I did get to piece together two blocks (so that we could bask in the wonderful strawberry fields prettiness) and here they are!
Just a little sample of what's to come!
Hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!

No Lakin' For Me

There were thoughts about heading to the good ol' lake house this weekend and going out in the boat.....until my mom just called to let me know that Ft. Gibson Lake now has that nasty blue green algae stuff that has Grand Lake swimmer-free.
Swim in the nasty (poo and algae) infested lake or hole up and quilt with my bestie, Calianna....
um, yeah
no swimmy swimmy for me! I really don't want to take my chances on dying from the algae.
Everyone have a fun and algae-free weekend!
