I'm Giving Away an iPod--Who Wants It?

Hey, everybody! I've been having a hard time keeping up with this blog lately, and I apologize for the paucity of posts. But I did want to let you know that I'm giving away an iPod (iTouch, worth $199) over at Hooked on Houses this week. All you have to do is leave a comment on the giveaway post to enter.

If you follow me on Facebook, then you know that my grandmother had emergency surgery over the weekend (that's her with my son Jake and me, above). We nearly lost her. It's been a tough few days, but she's rallying now. I loaded a bunch of photos of her with her great-grandkids onto my iTouch and took it to show her yesterday. It really cheered her up to watch the slideshow on the screen.

The iTouch also came in handy while I spent so much time sitting around and waiting in the hospital because I could watch TV shows on it, listen to music, and browse the Internet. I've only had it for about a week, and I'm already wondering what I ever did without it. (Go here to enter the giveaway.)

Oh, and before I forget, I featured a beach cottage dining room makeover at Hooked on Houses that you might like, too.

Hope you're having a good week! ~Julia

  11. Oh hon, sorry to hear about your grandma. That's rough. Sometimes blogging just has to be put on a shelf for a while. Hope she is making a healthy recovery.
