RAK time!! =)

What a whirlwind week! So I have "resale" duty, which is huge in our city. A big clothing resale that is for one day for kiddos. You can pretty much buy anything for kids that you can think of. They hold it twice a year (once in the spring and once in the fall). We sell and buy for all 4 kids that way and it is so much fun! My husband shops for toys (when he is supposed to be helping me pick out clothes, but oh well!), and I stock up on cute clothes and shoes and goodies. I have found the cutest boutique clothing for reasonable prices here. I volunteer as a committee head for inspection, so I shop Friday with a group of other committee heads. We get to shop before the public, so it's worth it to do the work. ;-) So my living room is an explosion of clothes and shoes and tags right now. . .among other things. So amidst the madness, I receive. . .HAPPY MAIL!! Nothing better than happy mail!

First I received this great deal from Peachy Cheap:

All for $4.99! What a steal. So if you have never checked 'em out before. . .you must! Today they have AC flair!

Second. . .I received my prize package from Sassafras Lass!!

They were wayyy generous! I love what they sent and can't wait until next week when I will have time again to play and create! Thank you Sass Lass!! This is for having their blinkie on my blog. So, just for putting their blinkie on your blog you can win those freebies. . .so what are you waiting for?? Get on over there!

Third - KENNER ROAD! They have some of the best kits (lately they have all been selling out), with exclusive stamps now and this month's kit features exclusive fabric! Aaagghhhh! I was in Heaven when I opened the kit. They picked my lo "Puppy Love" (shown a few posts back) as the gallery winner on flickr for last month's kit, and I received a free add on. I wanted to give a shout out to KL Yeary and say a HUGE thank you!!!

So. . .because of everyone's generosity, I thought it necessary to offer a RAK of my own to pay it forward! So leave a comment about your fave summer dish. . .I know - completely random, but I need some ideas and I am hungry, so food is on the brain. ;-) I will have my dd pick one, and send you this:

You will have until Sunday, then I will be finished with the resale and I can have fun getting ideas for what to cook in the next week. =) Have a good one!

Ah yes the "Resale." Those were the days. Say Hi to everyone for me! Saw Brenda K. just recently too at the FAME festival. All those goodies look so fun that I don't know if I could pull myself away from them so easily! As for summer fair - veggie and chicken kabobs from the grill! A big family favorite here!

My favorite dish is the chocolate sheet cake my mom makes me for my birthday. Since I am a May 27th baby when my mom makes this it just seems like summer has officially started. School is out and I am another year older. : )

Thanks for the chance to win the awesome prize!

WOW Amber, what a wonderful give-away!!!!!
My favorite summer dish is chicory-salad. I use shicory, a banana, apple, orange, raisins, cheese and ham or chicken and mix them all together with a sauce of yoghurt and mayonaise. And it's yummy!!!!!

I ♥ grilled salmon, a big salad & a good Chardonnay, preferably with perfect weather out on the deck... :-)

Have a GREAT weekend, Amber!
