Weekending and a Giveaway

Monday is here already?!?  This weekend was a good blend of work and play.  It was hot folks.  I mean like heat index of 106 hot.  So the heat did help keep me inside and doing some chores I've been putting off for years quite a while.

Friday night I got the honor of helping a good friend babysit her three adorable grand daughters.  One of them is 3 and the twins are just a few months old.  It was so fun listening to the 3 year-old tell her stories while cuddling a baby!

Saturday I ran some errands and finally picked up the Sally Hansen nail gel (that doesn't require the light).  This stuff is supposed to stay on your nails for 2 weeks!  Painted my nails on Sunday so the clock is ticking -- we'll see how long it lasts.  Anyone else tried it?

Sunday night we attended the Jeff Beck/ZZ Top concert and sat outside.  Thank goodness there was a great breeze blowing most of the time.  

Dusty Hill (left) and Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top brought their Texas-boogie blues to an almost-full Starlight Theatre on Saturday.

And that puts us at Monday morning.  To start the week off right, I'm participating in a giveaway.  Who wants some cold, hard cash?!?  I'm teaming up with my blog friend Amy and below is her post on the giveaway.  Please join in and good luck!

We are making it rain up in here.

My truly lovely sponsors and I have some dope prizes to giveaway.
Any by dope, I mean sexy.
And by sexy, I mean ah-mazing!

For starters we are handing out 180 dolla-billz.
That's a lot of moola that I surely wouldn't turn my nose up to.

 Secondly, the winner will get to choose any pair of darling earrings from Emma & Sophia.
Yes please.

And thirdly, a Big Spender ad space on A Fresh Start on a Budget's blog.
Not too shabby.

Check out all of the darling gals below and get entered!!

Have a great week everyone! Linking up with Leann, Meghan, and Biana for some weekending fun.
