This and That . . .

Just in case I can't get to post this week's Eye Candy Friday, as I'm sooooo behind in email replies, projects and the list goes on, I wanted to share with you some giveaways, events and wedding tidbits that I've received in my inbox.

PS: if you have recently emailed me about contest sponsorships, advertising, etc . . . please bear with me as I continue to sift thru my inbox and get caught up - the wedding season is officially here. If more than 2 weeks pass and you haven't heard from me, please give me another holler to say "Hey, Don't Forget About Me!" :)
