300th Post and a Giveaway!

In February of 2008, I started this little 'ol blog as a way to preserve memories I might have forgotten otherwise! Like how I skipped out on getting my wisdom teeth removed and randomly went to Disney World instead (for the first time in 17 years!) or when I went to the fantastic Carrie Underwood concert with Vanessa!

So much has happened and I've listed my top 10 posts from 2008 here and then just recently listed all the crazy-amazing things that happened in 2009!

In honor of all this, today I am having a giveaway! (Feel free to be very excited!)

The winner will receive a $20 Lowes Gift Card!!!

All you need to do to win is answer one of these questions:

What is your favorite design blog?
What is the next project you want to tackle at your house?

  • To enter, just leave a comment with your answer (make sure you give a link to your favorite design blog, if that's the question you answer - because HELLO we all want to know about it!).

  • For a second chance to win, post about this giveaway on your blog and comment here to let me know you did (leave your website so others can check it out!)

  • For another chance to win, become a follower of the Ooey Gooey Daily News! (If you already are, just remind me of that in your comment.)

  • Finally, for a fourth entry, tweet about the giveaway (and follow me there too, if you want!) - just be sure to let me know you did!
I'll go ahead and answer because, well, it's my blog and I can do that. :) My favorite design blogs are a tie between Young House Love and Bower Power (real original, I know). I just really love both of their simple and laid back styles - it's what we're working towards at our house! And the project I'm in the process of tackling is our guest bedroom which I whined about here. (Luckily for me, Alex is my new interior design consultant and I'm well on my way to a finished space!)

Whew! I'm excited!! Winners will be announced on Monday, February 15th!


  1. so fun! my favorite design blog is my friend rachel:

  6. My favorite design blog is Design*Sponge ( They have so many cute/funky/vintage ideas... and they have before and after pictures!

    Since the house I'm about to move into is rather, um, old, there are so many projects that I'm excited about. But the #1 is the living room. Refinishing the hardwood, applying a fresh coat of paint, and restoring the original windows.

    Finally, I follow your blog, I'm about to post about your giveaway on mine, and I'll be sending out a tweet shortly. :) Can you tell I want this gift card? Haha!
