Colleen was randomly selected by Random.or and has won herself a Winkee.
What a great invention. I avoid buying a lot of cute tops because they are just too low cut and in the summer it's too hot to add an extra layer. I'd love to win.
Thank you to everyone who entered. Check back for more giveaways!

Our friends at over at KMR Communications is at it again by introducing us to some fabulous finds! They are introducing us today to the Winkee. What's a Winkee you say? Well read on...
It’s official: We no longer have to resort to bulky tank tops or duct tape to cover up the dreaded “too-much cleavage” syndrome. The ultimate solution for wardrobe malfunctions is finally here! The Winkee is a stylish, lightweight bra accessory that can help cover cleavage without added bulk.
Let’s face it, wardrobe mishaps are not only confined to the red carpet or the Super Bowl. From slip up’s and slip out’s, sometimes clothes develop a mind of their own. For many women, it seems the dreaded bra flash happens at the most inopportune moments. No matter the size of your bosom, a low-cut shirt can become a source of discomfort in certain settings. Whether you’re in the office or at a family function, every woman has asked herself “Is this top too revealing?”
The Winkee, created by entrepreneurs Patricia Calamari and Karla Kennedy is an answer to this fashion dilemma. Combining the concept of a tank top layer with the added benefit of being removable, The Winkee allows women to cover cleavage when they need to, and switch from “day to night” seamlessly without having to change outfits completely.
According to Patricia, “The Winkee is a patent-pending design that solves every woman’s occasional need to have a multi-purpose outfit. From the jetsetter who simply wants to pack lighter, to today’s multi-tasking woman who wants to go from the boardroom to out on the town with friends, The Winkee has you covered – literally!”
- Stick Winkee Dots on the inside of each of the three Winkee tabs
- Wrap top side tabs around straps of bra
- Wrap bottom tab under the middle of front of bra

Katie's son recently turned 5. He is a huge Indiana Jones fan, so what more perfect than an Indie themed party? Leave it to Katie and Cindy to create the atmosphere of a great Indiana Jones move, all while making the kids the lead role. I guess you could say kids parties are our favorite to do!
The party was held at Momma Labonte's house (because of the pool). the kids were able to swim and have fun. Cindy set up a great obstacle course for your young Indiana Jones and guests to run through. It was so fun. While the kids were running through the course, looking for their treasure and artifacts, we the parents, were shooting "poison"darts (q-tips out of straws) at them. It was so funny, and the kids thought it was great!
Cindy and Katie made each kid their own hat, whip and satchels. All by hand of course!
The cake was another momma Labonte original, complete with Lego Indiana Jones characters.
For food we kept it simple (I know...simple right), hot dogs and hamburgers. BUT we did have the "poison" drink (blue koolaid) and the "antidote" drink (lemonade). Complete with slithering snakes.
This was a great idea for a kids party! If you are interested in the satchels (which were made from dish towels) and whips, let us know...we could do a "how to" post on them!

We are at it again with the tropical themes. I guess we love them and they come easy to us! So here we go...
We recently put together a bridal shower for a great friend. She is getting married in July and lives at the beach so the Tahitian/Tropical theme just just fit. We were able to recycle a lot of our decorations form past parties (50th anniversary, birthdays etc). It was a small, so we were able to go a little over the top on food and drinks.
We simplified the centerpiece to be functional and fun. We used sand and HOMEMADE bamboo, flower pens. Yes...homemade! Sometimes Katie and Cindy get so creative I could just die. Where they come up with these things is beyond me. But hey, that's why we are a good team, they are creative and I help organize and execute! Anyways, back to the pens:
We wrapped the patio posts in a burlap fabric and used real palms out the top to look like trees:
The famous KDC Event photo op was present (recycled from the anniversary party):
We served appetizers and a main course. The appetizers were delicious, see below for photos and details. For the main course we served chicken and beef kabobs with fresh veggies, coconut cilantro rice, and pasta salad.
Beef and Chicken Kabobs with delicious, Fresh Veggies and Coconut Cilantro Rice:
The cake was a Momma Labonte original complete with surfer girl cake topper (thanks to Cindy):
It was such a fun shower to put on. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Let us know what your thoughts are on it, Thanks!

I want to introduce you to one of my new bloggy friends, her name is Holly Lefevre. I met this fabulous woman through two of her blogs, Hip Weddings, and 504 Main. I fell in love with her posts, they were always full of such great ideas and information. After reading her blogs for a while, I learned that she is the author of a great book called The Everything Wedding Etiquette Book. I am a HUGE fan of etiquette (my other favorite bloggy friends is Etiquette with Miss Janice), so I was immediately intrigued!
Some of my Favorite Holly posts:
