Thanks, XOXO, Rachel

  21. What a cute puppy, I had one just like him named Yosimite Sam, he is in doggy heaven now, but he lived 15 years! Honestly, I have gotten everything I have wanted this year, I have a new baby girl that is healthy and happy, my other 2 children are healthy and happy and a wonderful loving and supportive husband! That sounds pretty cheesey I know, but it's true! Merry Happy Christmas to everyone!!!

  29. Welcome Ruby! You are the cutest thing ever! I would LOVE if Santa could bring me a puppy like Ruby for Christmas. Is it too late to send him a letter?

    This year, I asked Santa Claus for a Kitchen Aid mix master :) My goal for 2010 is to learn how to bake! I love cooking, but suck at baking. So, I have asked for a Kitchen Aid to help in my future baking endeavors. My mom has one and they are magical. I asked Santa to bring me one in lime green to match my kitchen!

    Merry Christmas to everyone! *festive hugs to all*

    ReplyDelete
  80. I got "Ruby" for my present and I LOVE HER. She is sooooo sweet, loveable and what a cute face. Tonight she started barking at herself in the mirror and jumping at the other dog in the mirror. Kody thought of her full name today -her name is RUBY TUESDAY since we got her on Tuesday. So I don't expect anything under the tree except her, there might be a small surprise there.
    I also wish, just like Katelyn said, I wish time would stop just for Christmas day, where does it go??? and to have peace all over the world.
    Merry Christmas to everyone and all the best in the New Year :)

    Love Momma

  97. This year I gave my best effort in having a HANDMADE Christmas. Fortunately I started making Christmas cards (that's right--EVERYTHING was handmade) in September, but was still crocheting up until the last minute this morning! So to ease this burden for next year and to expand my horizons, I asked for a sewing machine and for my grandmothers time to re-teach me some of the basics :). I'm hoping that this will get me all prepped and ready to go for STYLE SCHOOL that starts ohhhh so very soon!

    ReplyDelete

  105. Leigh-Ann, I love reading your blog. And love the giveaway! For Christmas this year, I would like my two front teeth. Ok, not really but one would be nice since one of mine randomly fell out while I was sleeping last week. How's that for a nightmare? And honestly, hillbilly is not such a good look for me. Who loses a tooth at 28, seriously? Haha!

  106. Yay! I love these big sponsor giveaway posts--I love finding new fun sites!
    I really wanted/needed a new watch this year since I was going years*** without one (and yes, being late all the time!) and my time-fanatical husband came through for me and got me a beauty!!
    haha!
    Enjoy your holidays!!

  107. Merry Merry Christmas LA & Keith!
    all i really wanted for Christmas was the amazon kindle... and tattoos. but what i realized i really needed was all this time with my family. we are snowed in and all roads are closed and it has been the most joyous thing yesterday and today. (and.... that leaves me lots of time to catch up on my bloggy reads!)

  109. What fun!!! For Christmas. I want to spend time with my family. It's probably one of the last ones we'll get to spend together because I'll be headed across the world after college graduation [for several years at least]. {and that wish came true!}

    Merry Christmas! Josi
