This started out to be a "Feeling the Love" Giveaway, with Valentines Day in the air and all that. And then I started thinking. Not everyone has a sweetie. Or if they do, they are getting plenty of sweetie talk from the tv commercials right now. I swear every other commercial is for ProFlowers or "He went to Jared" And I'm kind of sick of it myself.
So this is a little different giveaway. It's showing ourselves the love.
Are you being good to yourself? Are you?
I hope so. You deserve it. You're worth it.
And when I say "being good to yourself" I mean taking your vitamins, eating right, getting some exercise occasionally, having lunch with friends, doing things you love.
It is so easy to put ourselves last. We are busy doing so much for other people. We think 'What's the point?' We might be kind of depressed as it is only February and spring seems so far away. The days are short and dark and cold. And maybe we've gained a few pounds over Christmas (so sue me!) and then one day I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror and think "Who is that sad looking girl?"
I realized this week that my husband has not seen me out of pajamas for awhile. He probably thinks I never get dressed. He leaves for work before I'm showered and gets home after I've changed back into pjs. I'm not talking sexy loungewear either. I'm talking flannel pjs that I once wore when painting my kids' room that have seen better days. Not exactly the upbeat woman who is having a year of treating myself right.
I hear you asking yourself, "What does this have to do with anything and what are you giving away, Emily?" Well, ok, I'll tell you.
But first! The prizes!
Some goodies from Bath and Body Works-
Fresh Vanilla bubble bath and shower gel (2oz )
