Two Special Gifts

A few days ago, I told you all how excited I was that I'd won a giveaway.  Well, guess what?!  When I got home from visiting my mom in Oregon just now, there was a package in the mail for me!  And...

Inside was this adorable Alice journal that I won during Cindy Adkins' "Alice's Tea Party" week at her blog, Whimsical Musings

Here's the back.  Isn't this just the neatest thing?  I totally love it...thank you, Cindy!

Another awesome thing that happened this weekend was the receipt of this gorgeous ring from my mom!  I was chatting about how I loved the ring that Prince William gave to the new Princess Catherine and my mom surprised me with this one in a similar style!  It belonged to my great-grandmother.  How exciting...I totally love it!

I hope everyone has the opportunity for some great rest and relaxation this weekend! We have been traveling the last couple days and are really looking forward to a day of down time on Saturday... Well, the kids and I are. My faithful husband will be back to work bright and early! I'm so thankful for him...thank you for all you do to bless us, Jamie!

I'm joining these parties today:
