What would you do with a FREE weekend?

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Hampton Hotels. All opinions are 100% mine.

With the little Diva getting to be 10 months old now, we are finding out that we have a morning gal on our hands. Not only does she wake up at first light, but... she is full of energy and ready to go! Her only saving grace is that she is so full of giggles and smiles that it is hard to hold it against her, LOL! Still you wonder what it would feel like to sleep till “you” wake up again. We have just four more months before the new baby makes it's arrival (find out the flavor Sept. 15th), and I would love to have a couple nights (and days) to hang out and have some “me” time. Are you with me on this?

What if you could win a free weekend stay? You can! Hampton is running a great sweepstakes that you can enter daily until 9/4/2010. The Grand Prize is an entire hotel for the weekend (100 rooms for 2 nights), and they are also giving away 100 First Prizes for you and three friends! You pick the hotel that is convenient to you, leave the kiddos (maybe just the hubby) at home, and have a fun weekend! Just go to Hampton Chain of Friends Sweepstakes, and remember you can enter every day until 9/4/2010.  The Hampton website is easy to navigate, and has a great hotel search function that I will definitely be using again.

I would love to take a short trip down to San Antonio. I love the River Walk, and always enjoy strolling along checking out the various stores. There is a Hampton Inn right there that would be awesome to stay in too!  Though it would be a little hot right now to completely enjoy the stroll, in October the weather would be fantastic. To be honest though I would probably end up packing Ms. Diva to go along with us. How is that for wanting a weekend without the toddler, LOL?

While blog hopping recently, I came across this fantastic tip listed on Be Our Best.  Jill has compiled her Top 10 Blogging Tips in one place to help others out there in blogland.  Most of them I had heard of before.  But she had one on her list that I have only seen a couple times in practice, and have not heard a how-to do it before.Number 6: Add a clickable signature to your comments.If you add the following text to the bottom of the comments you leave for other bloggers, whatever text you insert for “Your Text Here” will be clickable.  You have to switch out “{“ and “}” with “<” and “>” then it will work.  Remember to also change the “Your Blog Address” part, LOL! {a href= }YOUR TEXT HERE {/a}Bonus Tip ~ I use Notepad to store all the html codes I use on a regular basis {the direct link code for my signature image, color codes, etc.}.  I added the above code to my Notepad page, edited it with my information, and saved it.  Now all I have to do …

Quick Kitchen Curtain Tutorial

How comfortable with sewing are you?  Would you like to a quick and easy project that you can do yourself to create a window valance/ruffle out of any fabric you find?  Here you go!  There are only three lines of stitching in this project.  Very little measuring, and gorgeous results.

This project actually started almost two years ago, when I painted our current kitchen a pale ice blue we had left over from painting a bedroom.  To try something different, I painted the ceiling of the kitchen a deep, high-gloss navy.  You can see just a little bit of the ceiling in the finished curtain picture below.  As much as I adore the contrast in the paint colors, trying to find a ready made curtain for the kitchen has proven impossible.  Lots of kitchen curtains are to frilly, not the right color, too white, so on and so forth.  Did I mention too expensive?
So, when I brought home this fabric from Sewing Club and was trying to figure out what 'it' wanted to be, I decided it would be perfe…
