New Look and First Giveaway!

I am so excited about my blog's new look! Alexis over at Blog Designs by Alexis did a wonderful job! She worked hard to customize it just the way I wanted it. Thank you, Alexis!

To celebrate the new blog design here at "In the Heart of our Home," I think I will try my first giveaway! This should be fun!

The giveaway will include the following goodies:



* a great summer apron, modeled below by my sweet daughter, Big Sister
* a cute "Friends" tray
* a copy of Let's Go on a Mommy Date by Karen Kingsbury
* a copy of the must-read Crazy Love by Francis Chan
* a wordless book.


You can easily enter this giveaway by doing any or all of the following:

1. Leave a comment telling me what you think of the new blog design.
2. Become a friend of "In the Heart of our Home" by adding yourself as a follower.
3. Do a post on your blog about this giveaway (and let me know :-).

I hope you will take the time to participate! We will have the drawing Friday night (July 16) and post the winner Saturday (Middle Sister's birthday :0)!

Thought I was a follower--I am now! I was going to tell you how I like the new look when I was here last night. Instead, I got side tracked, and your blog sat here on my screen for about 4 hours. So, if your counter shows how long visitors were here...it was me...not some crazy stalker=).

Coming over from Mama Hen's (she is quite your fan club president!!) What a special friendship:) I LOVE your new blog design. I was away this past week and came home to no background and had such a time getting something new loaded. What has blogger done?? Is it expensive to have one custom designed?? Just curious.

Your family is beautiful! I will try to leave a post about your giveaway - I'll let you know if I make it:)
