best. day. ever. {giveaway}

welcome to best. day. ever.  

how do you like my new do?  a big "thanks" to jess over at i rock so what, for a great job on my new banner.  

its kind of an exciting time here at my little corner of the world wide web.   i am only a month away from my two year blogiversary and this here post is my 300th!!!  can you believe it?  thats a lot of nonsense coming from my fingers to your eyes.  i wanted to say "thanks" to the peeps that have been here for a while and give a big "HEY THERE" to the newcomers.

are you wondering why the change of name?  well, im glad you asked :)  when i started this blog, i was doing a lot of seeking.  
  • i have found out a lot about myself on this journey and found a lot about God and how faithful He is to me even when i just flat out suck.  
  • i have taken some photos that i am really proud of and found a great way to serve others with the pictures i take.  
  • i have learned to be more creative with my style.
  • i have realized how to better love and serve my amazing husband. 
  • i have been reminded to not to take life so seriously.  
  • i have been inspired to serve my community and a heart to inspire others
dont get me wrong, i will always be "seeking" ... but this space has turned into so much more.  i want to share the good, the bad and the ugly and always know that it is up to me to make every day the best day ever.  i would like to inspire others to find joy in the little things.  a bit cheesy but oh so true.  

so whats next?  what can you expect from this change?  not too much.  i will still blog about everyday life, sharing stories, memories and pictures of my pups.  i will still post a lot about my style, family, things that inspire me and my faith.  you can expect a lot of sarcasm and misspelled words with hardly any punctuation with a high dose of silliness.  i would like to encourage you all to interact with me and leave plenty of comments.  i heart meeting new people!  i love hearing/reading your stories and love telling people about what God is doing in my life!  

so, welcome to best. day. ever.  grab some coffee or tea and stay a while.  

.... and now for the good stuff.  in honor of my 300th post and my face lift, i have decided to do my 2nd ever giveaway.  for those of you that follow me on instagram, facebook or twitter, you know that i recently had a accident with a special hand warming coffee mug {a dear to me gift from tara}.  it was the best mug ever!  

i always got the most compliments when i took the mug on outings ... like a lot of compliments.  so, i figured it would be a really great giveaway item along with a $20 gift card for itunes.  how bout it?

  1. i LOVE LOVE LOVE this mug!! especially the one that is green, blue and pink at the top. i just found your blog and am following you now!

  2. Hey there, cousin! :) I've been following your blog for a while now, though I must admit I haven't always kept up with it. I also have a bad un-habit of never (rarely) commenting, but just want to let you know that I have been blessed, amused, and inspired by your posts over time.

    Ironically, I just broke my favorite mug (also a simple clay pottery cupsie) a while back, and have been in mourning ever since! I like the brown and blue/brown mugs shown above, but am particularly hearting the brown/blue one. :)

    I'm right-handed, and my email is

    I am SO ready for Spring, and am looking forward to celebrating our first wedding anniversary! :) Of course, gardening/planting things is also nice... warm sunshine... beach trips... camping... yep. I'm so there! ;P

    Have a blessed day, pretty lady! Love you... <3


  3. Aww! what a great way to honor your favorite mug E! i think i like the first mostly brown one, i'm right handed, my email is and i think i'm mostly looking forward to wedding season starting back, my camera has been badly neglected the past couple of months and i'm ready to pick it up again. :)

  4. OMG - I am totally crazy about this mug, but I think I might have already told you that a few dozen times! I need a mug to hug :) I love them all & could care less which color!!

    I think what I'm most looking forward to about spring is getting outside more - walks at the park, playground time, picnics, maybe a trip to the zoo! And getting to wear my flip flops to work, my feet really miss them!

  6. This is such a great giveaway. I found your blog from Words of Williams and I love it already! I'm right handed and my email address is I love the teal and blue mug.

However, my husband and I will begin working in ministry this spring so I'm really looking forward to that. Thanks!

  7. I'm a follower. I think since the beginning. I receive email at, I like the blue one, and I am right handed.

    I guess I'm most looking forward to temperatures in spring. Though I guess that's not really something to look forward to this year since we haven't really had much of a winter. I mean, really, one snow?
