I have a fair amount of jewelry. Some I've purchased and some was given to me. Some if it is decades old and some is relatively new. Yet, I continue to wear the same jewelry everyday. I have sterling silver hoops in my ears, my wedding ring on my left ring finger, and a black hair band on on my right wrist (though sometimes it's in my hair). I cannot NOT wear earrings. I've always been this way. Sometimes I'll switch things up, but for the most part I just wear my small, silver hoops and never take them out (not even to shower or sleep). I love them. They go with everything, keep my poor holey ears from looking naked (my mom pierced my ears when I was three and they will never close at this point, or I'd let them), and that is one part of being dressed and put together that I don't have to think about.
So - this weekend's giveaway (#6 of My Unnecessary Necessities or Things I Love That I Want to Share with You) is a small pair of sterling silver hoop earrings. Figured I needed to think about some things I love which aren't geared towards kids for a change. :) I just purchased them today from a vendor at the local Strawberry Festival.
For a chance to win: be a follower with a blog, leave a comment and want these earrings. Giveaway is open internationally and closes Wednesday, the 20th in the evening.
And just for fun and since I haven't posted any recent pics of my kids, here are two photos we took while out and about at the Festival.
(ash wanted to get on this ride and though we got one shot of a small, little smile, this is how she looked for most of the ride. she was so serious! i caught her eye on one of the go-arounds and she cracked a half smile because i was grinning so big, but she quickly squelched it. i told my mother about this later and she chuckled and said, "you were the exact same way as a little child. if you were on a ride or doing anything else new and exciting you would never give anyone the pleasure of knowing you were thrilled." haha! i guess those things are genetic. how funny! if you look closely you can see me laughing at my youngling in the background.)
(we got several treats one of which was a elephant ear/churro type of thing called a tiger tail. basically a Navajo bread rolled in cinnamon and sugar. britt looooooved it. as you can see she enjoyed it so much she rubbed it all over her face, her shirt, and even her hair. she looks like she has a five o'clock shadow goin' on! it wasn't much fun to clean off of her, but it was entertaining to watch her gradually devour it. when i first gave it to her she dropped it on her stroller tray and rubbed her hands together in disgust at the texture. then she tasted her fingers. hahaha! i could just see her thoughts, "this sand is.....GOOD!!!!!!" oh, and she wasn't crying. her eyes are always watering. i think she's allergic to all the thriving grasses that are making me miserable right now. poor baby.)
