Home Depot Holiday Style Challenge


Let that sink in.

Monica, from Beeville, TX, is going to be featured on the uber fab, The Apron Blog as part of The Home Depot’s Holiday Style Challenge.

Pinch me, someone, please. But doesn’t my little face look cute?

I’m so honored to be alongside some pretty popular bloggers, um…hello, Mr. Goodwill Hunting.

Seriously. Stoked. But you guys…I think I need to lose those 75 pounds I’ve been “trying” to lose for over 4 years so I can have a super cute headshot. I WANT A CUTE HEADSHOT.

I pretty much tell everyone I know about me being selected as one of the bloggers, and I’ll probably continue yapping about this honor until 2015. This means the world to me. I puffy heart The Home Depot.

So, I can’t divulge too many details yet, but I was sent some gorgeous holiday décor to deck out the favorite room of my house. If you want to know the room, or see some sneak peeks, then follow me on Instagram. I swear I don’t post selfies often, because we all know people who do that, and well… yeah.

Once my post is live, you can bet I will tell you all about it in every single darn post so you can go look and share and send me virtual warm fuzzy feelings. It was a ton of work, I spent 3 consecutive weekends working on the project and I took 2 days off of work, but I couldn’t be happier, nor prouder, of the outcome. I can’t wait for you all to see it! 🙂

You all should definitely head over to The Apron Blog to see the other AHHHH-MAY-ZING bloggers who will be wowing you this holiday season with their creativity, style, and talents.
Be back tomorrow with a weight loss update and even more news. Smooches!

And also…I’m trying to update my blog design (I DIY it all, people!), so please pardon the dust as I transition to a new look.
