Black Friday Giveaway-$25.00 Value

Happy Black Friday!

It’s been an interesting 24 hours for me.

Thanksgiving Day, on the way home from my aunt’s house, we were rear ended by another car!

It was dark, rainy, and wet.  A fender bender had just happened in front of us, so my husband slowed down to a stop.  As we sat there, he noticed the car behind us kept driving quickly toward our car and wasn’t stopping.  He said, “This car is about to his us!”  And WHAM!  It did.

It pushed our car forward quite a bit and scared my boys to death.  There was a lot of screaming and crying as we tried to calm everyone down.

Thankfully, no one was hurt in either car.  It totaled the car behind us, and they had to get a tow truck to haul it off.  But our big honkin’ suburban just got the bumper messed up.  We sat in our car for an hour waiting for the police to arrive and finally write up the report.

Anywhoo, we made it home safely.

But I didn’t let that stop me…I took off from the house around 10:30 pm for Black Friday shopping.  Let’s just say I shopped til I dropped.  :)  I love the madness.  I’m never in a hurry, so it all makes me laugh.  I didn’t get in until 8:00 am this morning!  Seriously.  It’s the first time I’ve stayed out all night like that.  I got some good deals, but nothing amazing. The best part was the “snow globe” snow that came pouring down around 1:00 am.  It was magical!

So I have gotten a couple hours of sleep now, and I am ready to announce this great giveaway!

  1. I love the retro circles for my 11 daughter’s room and maybe the rec room. Fun! Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. First off ——I AM SO GLAD YOU ARE OKAY AND NO ONE WAS HURT!!!!!!!!

    Second – All night shopping – seriously??? I LOVE IT. I did go to Walmart for a couple of hours and today I haven’t found any real great bargains.

    Third – I would love to win, hmm I am thinking I would like to do something in my dining room which I am planning to redo after christmas. Since I don’t tweet or facebook, I guess this is my only entry. THANKS :)

    I am really glad that you and your family were not hurt. I have been rear ended too. I saw it coming and there wasn’t anything I could do. But thankful I wasn’t hurt.

    Hope you have a W-A-N-D-A-F-U-L weekend! ;)

  3. So glad that you and your family are all ok. Your angels were clearly working overtime coz you are so special to Him (and us) ;) Sending you much love.

  4. I would love to win – I love her stuff. I know I’d want the “Merry Christmas” one for sure!

  5. I would probably use the gift card for a custom Christmas vinyl design, or I would also love the monogram wall letters! I hope I win!

  6. So glad you are all ok! How scary!! Would love to have seen that snow you saw later, though!!
    I would choose a Scripture verse or one of the Christmas ones!! Thanks!!

  7. Glad you weren’t hurt! We drove through some ice and snow over the holiday weekend and it was SO scary! Just popped by to wish you a happy Thanksgiving weekend, and as long as I’m here, I’ll enter the giveaway too! Yay!


  8. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Leen the Graphics Queen! I recently ordered a “Give Thanks” decal from her in colors to match my kitchen and she was SOOO fast getting it to me! She is awesome! I want to add numbers to the back of my bar stools, so I would use the gift card to order some custom numbers and I really want a certain custom saying for my house, so it would go towards that too!

  9. I love all the shapes and flourishes, I really just couldnt decide I love it all. Thank you for doing a giveaway and I am so glad your family is ok.

  10. So glad everything turned out for you and your family-God always protects us! There are so many great things to choose from, but I like the mini chalkboard decals, the elegant letter initals, and the trust in the Lord decal. Thanks so much for hosting this!

  11. Traci! Yay and double yay for big honkin’ Suburbans–they are soooooooo safe and I’m sure your man is a safe driver, too! So happy you all are OK (the Lord is good).

    Love the chalkboard decal signs & the little chalkboard under the shelf!
    Sindy : )

  12. So glad your family is ok after the scary accident!

    I have a wall that is just begging for some vinyl. I see several of her things that would work!

  13. OMGosh, I eyeball her site all the time. One day I am going to buy a “Welcome” decal! I’d also love something sweet in my daughter’s room. We are in the beginning stages of turning it into her “big girl room” so something like this would be perfect. What a great giveaway!

  14. I love her chalkboard designs. I also would really love to put “Welcome” on my front door too. Thanks for the chance to win! (I tweeted this as well.)

    Glad to hear everyone was okay and that you were able to enjoy some fun shopping time!

  15. I’m so sorry to hear about your accident – it is so sobering isn’t it. Thankfully none of you were hurt.

    If I were to win, I would add the word ‘welcome’ to our front door.

  16. Thank goodness all y’all are okay! And we just replaced our front door, so my welcome decal needs to be replaced as well. Thanks for the chance!

  17. oh. . I have not been over here in a few days. . lot happening in your life and on your blog. Gonna go take a few minutes to soak it all in. I would use a gift certificate to get those bird silhouettes. . I want them to put on the door frames, window sills, and base boards of my home. They would make me smile every time I walked by. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  18. Girl! I’m so glad y’all are okay! Being in a wreck is bad enough, but being in a wreck with little ones is so much worse. Been there, done that!

    I stayed home Friday…my nerves over the week just couldn’t take it. : )

    And I just went to Leen’s store and as much as I love everything in it, what grabbed me the most was the $5 “Give Thanks to the Lord” decal! I love that!
