Love Like This!

Tonight I got to eat dinner with 4 special girls - Laurie, soon-to-be bride Hillary, Emily and Sarah Kate. We went to Olive Garden. Yum! Scott HATES OG so I can only eat there with friends. I stuffed my big belly silly.

Emily and I cheesing ! :-)

So I have an exciting give away!!!

Ayiesha Woods was a nominated New Artist of the Year at the Dove Awards this year and she has a new CD coming out on 9/9. You will love this CD - and you can check it out for yourself here and listen to the songs. If you love Christian music (or if you don't) - this will be a great CD to add to your collection.
The nice people at Gotee Records (maybe you have heard of Jennifer Knapp or Sonic Flood (love them)) are letting me give away one CD to a lucky reader! Just leave me a comment and let me know you'd love to win. Maybe listen to a few songs and let me know your favorite. (Hint: "Refine me" - LOVE IT) :-)
On Monday - I will use the random integer generator to draw a number and I'll send that person a free CD - what a deal!
And if you don't win - her CD will be available at Target as well as on-line!!!

Hey Kelly,

Your friend, Becca told me about your blog. Love it!

I see you guys tried for a couple of years before getting pregnant. This will be our 26th month of trying. I'll go back and read more of your blog but it's always encouraging to read when someone else finally gets pregnant after trying for so long.

Congrats on the pregnancy and I look forward to reading more!

I was fortunate enough to hear Ayiesha Woods perform with her brother at my church a couple of years ago. I immediately downloaded her song, "You Make Me Happy," onto my iPod to make working out a little happier. Love her! And, would love to win...

Where have I been!!!! Have I been stuck back in a cave?? I have not heard of Ayiesha Woods!! I have spent all morning listening to her!!! She is awesome!!!! I couldn't pick a favorite song!!

Susan said...

Kelly,
I have been reading your blog for a long time but have never left a comment. You are inspiring and seem so sweet.

Hey Kelly,

Hope you have a great weekend,

Count me in, the cd sounds good. I had never heard of Ayiesha before, but enjoy listening to contemporary Christian music. I have never commented before now. I found your blog from Angie's and have enjoyed following the exciting news in your life and you have such an adorable family. I am very happy for you and Scott and was excited when you found out it was a girl. Harper will be a very blessed baby girl.

beccad said...

I would love the chance to win this CD. I'm with you on the song "Refine Me". I've been a lurker for a while and I meant to email you and tell you that I loved your Spinach Dip recipe. I made it for a baby shower and everyone loved it. Thanks for that. Please pick me my IPOD would love this CD too. I teach sign language through music for a ministry team of teenagers at my church and I could definitely use that song. I'm always looking for some great Christian music that teenagers and adults can fall in love with and truly worship.

LeeAnn said...

I would love to win. I only listen to Christian music!
By the way, congratulations!!
