Name My Blog and Whitney Caroline Designs GIVEAWAY!!!

When I started blogging a few months ago, it was purely for the few close friends and family who live so far away from us. We needed a family life update with pictures, so I didn't forget those cute little happenings and our northern family didn't feel so left out of our lives. Hence, the name Family Life. I was new to blogging, had never even read a blog and had no clue....I'll repeat that, NO CLUE, as to all the interesting blogs and friends I would find. Just scroll down my sidebar and look around, there are some really great blogs, some by my own family members!

My blog has become so much more than just showing off pictures of BG (Baby Girl) to the grandparents. I have followers who support my attempts in baking cakes, and sewing. They cheer me on when I have a tough day at my job. And they've become my relaxing hobby. I've gotten tips on how to soften my cuticles (thanks
Confessions of A Control Freak), how to branch out in my clothing lifestyle (inexpensivley I might add), decorating tips, sale tips (I bought Real Simple - a $40.00 subscription for $5.00 the other day - all from a tip from Monograms and Manicures). I've stepped out of my comfort zone in more ways than just blogging. I'm thinking of joining my own community's Junior League (thanks for the updates The Pink Tutu!)

That being said, a few weeks ago, I decided to have my blog designed by
April Showers Blog Design. The blog will be up and running in a few weeks. Along with that, I've decided to change the name of my blog to something more creative and fun. I mean, look at my sideabar and all the fun names! Black Labs and Lilly, Stuttering Shell and Sweet Tea Diaries. How cute and creative are those?

So, here's the deal. See this lovely tin from
Whitney Caroline Designs ? You can win this tin by Naming My Blog. It comes in a variety of colors, with a variety of bows and a variety of monograms. Visit her website and check out all her great preppy items! I know you'll love them.

Here's how this contest is going to work:

Step 1) Become a follower and either mention this contest in your blog or on your sidebar.

Step 2) Comment and let me know you've completed step one and in that comment, Name My Blog! Since I moderate comments, I will keep them all private, so don't be shy! Note, in order to be entered, you must provide a new name!

The contest will end on August 3rd at midnight.

I will then pick my favorite three names and put them out to a poll. The winner of the poll will receive the WCD tin, with the two runners-up receiving something special from my own personal pink-and-green stash!

Got it? Any questions? Email me! By the way - I updated my "About Me" section to the right of the page to help you with your naming.

Have fun, I can't wait to see what names you come up with in my Name My Blog contest!


  1. Southern Living: Preppy Style

    Your tag line could be something like "Join me on adventures in crafting, a career, and parenting all done with style."

    I'll keep thinking. Love this idea and love the giveaway!

  2. Wow, this is going to be fun and difficult, I've already gotten three great names! I'm so looking forward to what you keep coming up with over the next couple weeks!
