Now I know your anxious to know who won my fabulous $50.00 Gift Certificate from  a company I love to shop in the comfort of my home.

I used the Random Generator because it is so easy to just put in the numbers and let them choose the winner.
Drum Roll Please!

Surprise, Surprise 
Would you believe the number ONE won. Like a lot of people everyone hates to be first to enter because of it falling on number 1 but it did. 
Sonny honey your the big big winner of the $50.00 Gift Certificate to Novica. Thanks to Rick and Novica I was able to have such a nice giveaway.  So happy for you sweet friend. I know you will love shopping with this great company.
Sonny is a blogger you will love if you have not already met her. You can find her at 155 Dream Lane
My comment count had 37 on it when I got up this morning but one was after the deadline and she confirmed that in her comment but  thanks Tammy for coming by I always love hearing from you.
The other was a duplicate comment that I deleted so if I counted right I had 35 entries.
Since writing this I have had more entries. I am so Very Sorry but the giveaway ended June 7th at midnight central standard time. 

A HUGE thank you for everyone that entered my giveaway. I can not tell you how much I wish all of you could of won but I have another giveaway coming up soon so please don't give up. 

Sending you all good wishes for the best of weekends. Be safe and come back to see me real soon. You know I love visiting with you.
We had some nice rain last night which sounded good on the tin roof. Nice for a change.
Love to all

PS: I loved my dress for this wedding so maybe I can loose enough to get back into it. lol.....My diet is in it's fifth day and I am not doing too bad. I get up every morning and fix a fruit smoothie in the blender. Usually I put a little bit of almond milk in it instead of yogurt since I am suppose to cut out all dairy products.
Then for lunch I fix a salad and a big one. lol
Dinner or supper I do either the smoothie again or a salad with veggies. 
I do miss my cookies and DP for breakfast. lol

What a great wedding, The couple look so adorable and happy and YOU sweetums, have still got IT.. yes indeedy you sure do..

Glad to hear the "live it" is working out for you.. Just a little trick I learned awhile back- try to get the body to an alkaline state.. asparagus at least once a day and lemon on as many things as you can handle- fresh is best.. Just wanted to pass on that tip.

again , thank you sooooooooooooo much .. I am very excited..

Hi there, thanks for visiting my blog and leaving me a note. So very nice to "meet" you. Great, great photos and you shine along with the bride there.
You asked about a button to join on my blog? I blog with WordPress and they don't do followers there. I have email following, RSS feed is an option or Networked blogs.
Would love to see you again, hope you find a way to connect.
Enjoyed our visits, thanks, Jenn said...

PS - I forgot, you can also add my blog's url to Google Reader in order to see it there. I have a page on my blog "For Goggle" that gives step-by-step instructions how to do that.

:) Jenn

Sue said...

Those two just look like they belong together!

And you look like a million bucks in that blue dress!!


The Shop Around the Corner said...

Beautiful pictures. So much joy, and you look lovely.
Thank you for stopping by, Maggie. You probably don't remember me from my previous blog (One Heart at Home), but we've visited before. Needed something lighter so I'm enjoying this new page a lot more.
Glad you enjoyed visiting the "shop." :)
Much love,

Congrats to the winner! I love the wedding pics and I love that dress's one of my favorite colors and you do it proud. You look fabulous and also congrats on your diet. I need to get remotivated!

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

Dr. Kathy McCoy said...

What a beautiful family you have -- and such obvious joy at this wedding! I loved each picture (and also the ones in the previous post about your own wedding -- especially the childhood shot!) Thanks for sharing these and also hope all is well with you and your family!

Hello, so glad you visited that I might return the call - this reminded me so much of the love and fun we had at my daughter's wedding - it is wonderful to see your children find someone to love and care for them! I am now your newest follower - I hope you have a blessed weekend,

A Tale of Two Cities said...

Always enjoy getting to see photos of your family--I can tell it was an exhilaratingly happy day!

Debby said...

You look so beautiful in that blue dress. Great pictures of a handsome family except the Idiot of course. He He

Lisalulu said...

What beautiful memories, and YES that blue dress is YOUR color~~~
hope your new 'eating way of life' will hopefully become a habit. I know I have to work at it everyday... and after 2 weeks you really DO lose the sugar cravings (not that you would give your left foot for a cookie) but it does become easier.. what doesn't become easier is that as we get older the weight takes SO MUCH MORE TIME to finally leave!! i've been really really good for 3 weeks and have only lost 7pounds, but I feel better so I am keeping on keeping on!

Arkansas Patti said...

What a handsome couple and a not so bad looking, pretty mom. Nice to meet and put a face to Idiot. Blue is a great color on you.
Keep up the good work. Nothing tastes as good as thin.

acorn hollow said...

looks like a beautiful wedding.
And darn I didn't win!
congrats to the winner.

Gloria said...

What a beautiful wedding that was! Precious memories for sure..:)

I have been trying to continue a diet I did awhile back. It consisted of two eggs for breakfast, 2 Greek yogurts a day, 2 pieces of fruit a day, all the veggies (most kinds) you want. Liberal amounts of lean fish, chicken, and turkey, green tea...often, 8 glasses of water a day. I actually didn't get hungry on it. The only problem I had was the NO chocolate...:) My sis-in-law did this diet, sorry I don't remember the name, and lost a lot of weight. She looked gorgeous afterwards, she looked so healthy and vibrant. Her skin was glowing!! I did lose about 8 lbs the first week. I didn't lose much after that. But I have maintained it well. I think it is a pretty healthy diet. When I find myself slipping back into sweets mode, I try to go back to eating the way this diet was.

I hope yours is a success for you. Blessings for a happy weekend!!


Gypsy Heart said...

Wow, gorgeous photos and a gorgeous blonde in the midst of them! You look stunning in that blue dress my friend. Thanks so much for sharing!

Best wishes for the bride and groom!

Chatty Crone said...

The wedding pictures were awesome! You were beautiful too - loved that color on you. Best wishes to the bride and groom. sandie

Debby@Just Breathe said...

What a beautiful wedding. Thank you for sharing it. Best of luck with your diet. I am loving smoothies in the morning and I use almond milk for low carbs. You left me a comment the other day that went into my gmail spam. They said you were a no-reply!

Auntie Cake said...

Loved seeing how beautiful you are! Looks like a glorious day, but I am thinking we can't call you grandma yellow hair anymore. Even if the wedding happened two kids ago, you are NOT old enough to be grandma. Just a baby, you are!

Congrats to your winner. Enjoy your shopping spree! I will show my hubby the beautiful hammock, maybe it's a good birthday present!

Libbie said...

I smiled the whole way through!!! Those smiles on their faces say it all don't they? And what a beautiful bride she was! And I do have to agree with you...great dress!!! You look so pretty too Maggie!

I need to join you on the smoothies & salad! Maybe tomorrow!


Stephanie ~ Angelic Accents said...

Dear Maggie, thanks so much for always linking up with the Wedding Blog Party. I always look forward to what you will share. Never dreamed I'd see Idiot on here, tho! Wowsers, you are so awesomely beautiful in all your pics! Blue is definitely your color! And your kids are all so gorgeous! The bridal couple looks adorable. Love all the pics you've shared here.

Congrats to Sonny on her win!!

Big TX Hugs,

Hi Maggie,

Such a beautiful wedding,loved seeing all your gorgeous photos and you have such a great family.
You look beautiful in the blue dress and also enjoyed seeing the photos again of your wedding.
Congratulations to the winner!

Happy weekend

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

Hey Maggie! We have something in common. My husband's first name was Idiot too. Ha! And that royal blue is the same color I chose for my bridesmaids at the time (1987). You looked beautiful.

7 years ago, I changed my eating completely. Gave up coffee and only drank green tea. For breakfast I would have a smoothie made with lowfat plain yogurt, 1/2 a banana and a slice of pineapple, along with a piece of wheat toast with all natural peanut butter. Yummy! I read all packaging now. Don't buy anything if it has more than 10 grams of sugar. And even though I do eat sweets, I make sure I do them at home -- that way I control what goes into them.

When I got home from school, I had baked sweet potato and a piece of cornbread. And now I am having brown rice with blackeyed peas and jalapenos. Delish!

Wishing you all the best. Tammy

Jennifer Richardson said...

what beauties you all are!
I just love love:)

Pom Pom said...

Hi Maggie! That WAS a GORGEOUS wedding! Your blue dress is stunning!

Victoria said...

Those are wonderful pictures of your son's special day! Your DIL was a lovely bride:) I have 3 boys, none are married yet but I imagine I'll be a sobbing emotional mess when that day comes!!!

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Maggie,

Thanks for visiting and you asked about the Apartment we rented in Paris.
We have stayed with Yellowstay twice, but both times the beds have been very hard, which seems to be quite common there - others have said the same thing.
Just google Apartments to rent in Paris and you will come up with a lot that you are able to choose from.

Happy new week

Jennifer @ Town and Country Living said...

Your blue dress is so pretty! Really complements your hair, too. What a beautiful wedding.

Connie said...

Such wonderful pictures! You look absolutely beautiful!

Ann said...
