Flowers For Mom and a Great Giveaway!


Happy Friday! I am feeling pretty good today (yeah!) and boy, do I have a treat for you! How about a giveaway? With Mother's Day right around the corner, I jumped on this chance to be able to give away a $50.00 coupon from Better Homes and Garden and FTD.com
Is this not beautiful?

I lost my Mother several years ago, but luckily I have a special relationship with my husband's mom. She has always been a great help to me but especially now with my health issues and chemotherapy....she has really stepped up to the plate. She is truly amazing and can I say what a wonderful Grandma she is too? I can't wait to pick an arrangement out for her for Mother's Day.
I love how beautifully this arrangement came together...I especially love the lilies and little yellow mums. It's in a nice glass container that I know I'll find a use for later. 
I am so happy to be able to share this coupon with you. I KNOW we all have special women in our lives that would love to get a beautiful bouquet like this.
I want to keep it super simple to win this $50.00 coupon to FTD.com....Just leave me a comment! I am going to let this run all weekend and announce a winner on Monday.

  43. Michelle, I lost my mom several years ago and my mil this last year so it's the first time to not have anyone to give something to for Mother's Day. But I have a wonderful daughter-in-law who is the mom of my only grandson so that will be my focus this year! Also, I am your "juice book" friend and so wish I lived near you to help out with your housework,your grocery shopping, your other chores as I'm sure your mom would have done as you go through this difficult time - you are and will be triumphant!!

  54. So happy to hear you are feeling better! I am sorry to hear that your mom is gone... I lost my mom 9 years ago and Mother's Day is a reminder of what I lost and what a fantastic Mom I had. This Mother's Day is bittersweet, my daughter is leaving that day to move to California the day after College graduation fir work and graduate school. I know this is a natural progression, I just wish it didn't have to be that day. Hugs.

  55. I am glad to hear you are feeling better! My mother also passed away. I am praying for you and have forwarded emails from your blog asking prayer for you! I would love to send my MIL a bouquet from FTD! Thanks for letting me have a chance to win!

  56. Keep up the fight for good health. Sounds like you are on the right track. I will have to check out the book you are talking about. I have been feeling sick on and off for many years. I have discovered juicing and have been on the kale trail to. This week I completely went back to old bad habits and as I write this I am feeling unwell. When I stick to juicing and a healthy diet the rewards are so so worth it. Tomorrow is another day.
