Pretty, New Things

After a long, taxing day at work (I am having a hard time transitioning back into work mode after an 11 day spring break), I came home to a nice surprise from Lauren Nicole Gifts.

The other night I read a Lauren Nicole Gifts blog post that said:

"I have a bunch of things that I want to give away (products that I took off of the website because I only have one left). The first TEN bloggers to leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite Easter memory was will get one of these items."

I just happened to be one of the first ten bloggers to respond and I am LOVING the sterling silver engraved pendant she sent me!

This picture doesn't do the pendant justice (the flash makes it look scratched and I think you can see my fingerprint, haha), but it is definitely beautiful in person. I especially love it because it's got my new* monogram.

Now, the good news for you is that Lauren Nicole Gifts is planning to do more "grab bag giveaways" each month for the next few months, so make sure you are subscribed to her blog!

Also, my friend Julie from Wearing Mascara has asked that I check to make sure all her readers know that she recently switched to WordPress. So....everyone make sure is showing up in your Google reader because Julie has moved!!

*At what point is this not my new monogram, but my actual monogram? Same as being a newlywed?


  1. That is gorgeous!! And I think it starts being "your" monogram when you automatically think of it when someone asks you what it is. I barely remember my maiden name without having to stop and think about it now, haha!

    As for being a newlywed? That lasts as long as you are head over heels :)

  2. I always seem to miss those "first X commenters" giveaways. That's a beautiful pendant!

  3. I won one too and I love it!

  4. I'm so jealous! That is SOOO cute!!!

  5. That's beautiful! I've gotten to the point where I forget that Vigil isn't my original last name.

  6. I got one too (actually when I saw your post I ran downstairs to check)! So pretty

  7. Love you! Thanks for posting that and I LOVE the pendant! :-)

  8. What are you taking in school?
