Celebrating My Mom

Today would have been her 69th birthday had she lived to see it.  Can't believe she's been gone 13 years.

This picture was taken during her short remission in 1997.  I thought she looked so cute with her short, post-chemo hairdo.
That dark girl sitting next to her had just come home from a Mexico
vacation -- not her usual color by any means.
Does a daughter ever get over missing her mom? 

I wish I could lean on her. 

Every day.

The Royal Wedding Giveaway

Did ya know that Nancy O'Dell is a spokesperson for Creative Memories?  Yep.  SHE IS A SCRAPBOOKER!  (Love that about her!)  She even has her own line of Creative Memories products; designed by her in her favorite color.

Her real job is a commentator at Entertainment Tonight and she will be going to London to cover the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton – and you could be there with her.

“My friends at Creative Memories have put together the most exciting contest: the Happily Ever After Photo Contest, Nancy said. “All you have to do is share a photo of something that makes you happy, and you could win a trip to London during the royal wedding!”

The Grand Prize Winner will spend four days and three nights in London, amidst all of the excitement. Winners will hear the chimes of Big Ben, stroll by Buckingham Palace, celebrate with the locals in Picadilly Circus and join Nancy for a spot of tea and girl talk about all the wedding fun.

The contest runs through April 15. To enter, go online and “like” the Creative Memories Home Office Facebook Page, click on Photo Contest, read the rules, and upload an image that makes you smile.

The Grand Prize Winner will be selected based on creativity, personality and originality. Fifteen runners up will win a prize pack from the Nancy O’Dell Collection by Creative Memories.  “We’ll be calling the grand prize winner on Monday, April 18,” Nancy said. “I’m so excited about this contest and this once-in-a-lifetime Happily Ever After opportunity,” she added.

If I can figure out Facebook...I'm going to enter.

Good luck.
