a spring sparkle with *shabby apple*


we all love a little spring sparkle in our eye

I feel like I need and want that little sparkle in my eye
for spring and summer

last night as I picked my little girls up from my parent's home....
my dad told me...
well the farmer's almanac says one more snow in March

I said
"I can't take it dad"
{obviously I can...I just don't want too}
he said "me neither"
and he grew up in Wisconsin winters
so it didn't quite make me feel so bad for not liking this cold
yes...I realize many live north and have it way worse

for those that live north of me
bless you
bless you
bless you

because I honestly wouldn't survive

I do appreciate how beautiful the snow and mountains look
I really do
but I'm honestly over it in a day

one day in the snow
and I'd be saying

"where's the beach?"
the warm sun?
sand between my toes?
my family and friends in tow...
relaxing and sitting together with me on the beach?

so before I bore you away
with my thoughts of spring and summer

I've got a give-a-way for you
to add a little sparkle in your eyes

I was contacted by the *Shabby Apple website*
a website of women's & children's dresses
accessories
maternity 
 and casual wear

they are going to be offering one of you...a dress!

 after viewing some of their dresses...I agreed
what fun it has been to peruse their website

Shabby Apple gave me a pre-selected list of give-a-way dresses to choose from
so from their list I've picked three
2 women's/vintage style dresses
and one child's dress

the winner will be able to pick one out of those three
{named below}

and for those of you that need a little retail therapy and want to go ahead and start shopping 
 Shabby Apple has also offered you all a 10% discount

use the following discount code during checkout
"butterfliesdragonflies10off"


I found so many dresses that caught my eye
so I wanted to share my personal favorites
first with you all

 all are linked to the Shabby Apple website
and then at the end I'll show you the three give-a-way options

my personal favorites:

a few of my other favorite girl's dresses are:






the three dresses you may choose from for the give-a-way are noted below
I think it is so much fun for the winner to pick one of the three

one winner will be selected to pick one of the three dresses

I was just about to click off the page (my tomboy mentality doesn't allow me to geek usually) but one of the dresses made me squeak.

squeaking is good and totally unexpected. i'm in!

Entering again because I found a favorite dress! I am in love with the Sheep Meadow Dress. I might just have to buy it for my birthday :)
