NEW GIVEAWAY TO CELEBRATE 6000 Fans!~ 5000 Fan Giveaway Winner Announced ~ Warehouse Sale Details ~


Hello Readers!


Everyone probably wants to know who won the 5000 Fan Giveaway right?! I'll get to that shortly! Sorry for the delays, seems to be the story of my life lately! I was delayed in posting the 5000 Giveaway while my Minnie was sick in the hospital and hoped to get back on track but haven't been able to do so. 
I truly have too much on my plate!

We did make it to the June Lilly Warehouse Sale. I was nervous about traveling 7+ hours by car with Miss Olivia but her doctors gave the go ahead. 

After 7+ hours in the car Olivia patiently waited in line at The Valley Forge Convention Center while we waited for a number for the Lilly Warehouse Sale. We saw some familiar Lilly Loving faces from Re-Lilly while we waited and made some new Lilly friends.
As you can see the wait line was very long! 

Shortly after 6pm Lilly employees handed out numbers and we were #293, the highest number I have ever received, but still thrilled to have a number for the morning!


We then headed to Bahama Breeze Restaurant to meet up with other Lilly Lovers from Re-Lilly for dinner & cocktails.
We were thrilled to meet up with Re-Lilly friends. There was no Bahama Breeze in this near 90 degree heat and even though we felt like we were melting we had fun!


I wish we had more time to visit with these wonderful ladies! It had been a long day and we were tired and Olivia had started to complain her belly was hurting which scared me after the recent hospitalization. I tried not to panic and chalked it up to the long drive and the heat.
My poor baby was up sick most of the night with tummy issues so neither of us slept much. I slept about 1.5-2 hours as we had to be back in line at 4:30 am. I told Olivia we would skip the sale and rest and she threw a fit saying she felt much better so I told her we would try and if she wasn't feeling well we were going back to our hotel room.
So we got in line and enjoyed chatting with other Lilly Lovers and enjoyed reading these fun signs! 
This was how the line looked at 4:30-5:00 am.
The line went quickly and we got through the doors shortly after 5:30 and and shopped until we dropped, literally!
We scored lots of great deals! We were a little sad we couldn't find more matching items but very pleased with all the beautiful Lillys we found. 
After another long wait in line for the dressing room area we tried on a pile of Lillys. This is Olivia's favorite part of the Sale! She loves to try on new Lilly dresses and twirl! In the dressing area she was smiles and giggles while she danced and sang songs and modeled all the dresses she picked out. She received many compliments for being so well behaved and for being so entertaining and adorable. We have even received notes from Lilly employees that worked the sale to say how adorable she was in the dressing area. You never would have guessed this child had just been so ill. Unfortunately a few hours at the sale was enough and Olivia's tummy started to hurt again so I took her back up to our room where we laid down to rest. 

She still was not well but said she wanted to try eating so we went for lunch at Nordstrom's Cafe (King of Prussia Mall- we love this place!) and then some shopping in the Lilly King of Prussia store where we found more Lilly bargains! 
This photo was taken by Olivia at the KOP Lilly Store. She loves to take pictures! Not bad for 4 years old :-)

Here Olivia is modeling/dancing in the KOP Lilly Store window. She was having fun making faces through the window at Re-Lillyers (Andrea & her Mom), wish I had snapped a photo of that but was chatting with the sales associate. 
My Tiny Dancer. While we were here I was asked by shoppers if she ever stops smiling and the answer is No! She is such a happy smiling sweetheart. My philosophy is that smiling makes you feel good. Happy girls are pretty girls. When we see someone without a smile we give them ours :-)

Olivia saying "Good-Bye" to the turtle and giving one last hug as we left. 
After we left the store she started to feel ill again :( The symptoms she had when she was hospitalized returned so we quickly checked out of the hotel and headed back home. We were supposed to stay in KOP at the Sale through Friday night and also have her portraits done but I didn't want to take chances and be in PA on a Friday so far from her doctors/specialist so I put her in the car and raced for home. I won't go into details but having a child sick with stomach/intestinal issues in the car for 7+ hours was not fun! Trying to make Emergency stops was a challenge in traffic and she almost didn't make it while we were stuck in traffic coming through NYC on the GW Bridge. Through CT we hit very bad storms, took over 8 hours but we made it home. Poor DH was not so lucky and got stuck at the NJ airport due to the storms and flight cancellations. 
We have followed up with Olivia's doctors/specialists and they thing she may have Ulcerative Collitis (UC) triggered by the e coli poisoning. I don't usually give a ton of personal information out on my blog but will share that I suffer from UC, not a fun disease, not curable but treatable. I try to look on the bright side and feel blessed it is not something terminal and I do my best to deal with it and minimize flares. I hope & pray that Olivia does not have it but she is at a greater risk because I have it and because of the e coli poisoning. So now we wait and see if she has more flare-ups like she had in PA at the Warehouse Sale and continue to get tests. Please say a prayer for my sweetheart <3 She without a doubt is LILYS BIGGEST LITTLE FAN! Miss Olivia is still upset with me for leaving the Lilly Warehouse Sale early, LOL. We look forward to the next sale and hope to meet up with Re-Lillyers again. The Bahama Breeze re-Lilly dinner was our favorite part of this trip.

It is hard to compete for votes with those in the Greek Sorority System and with voters  posting they are giving other contestants 60 votes, 115 votes, etc., We never would have guessed we would have gotten this far with so many votes so CHEERS to all of you for sharing the Lilly Love with us!

This contest for us is about sharing the Lilly Love and we are thrilled to share our LOVE & Passion for the GREATEST BRAND IN THE WORLD with so many! Don't feel bad if we don't finish with the most votes because after voting ends all Top 20 entries with the most votes will be judged and have an equal chance. This was never about prizes for us, but proving our love for Lilly and sharing it with as many people as we could! We already feel like winners as our entry has held 1st Place for several days, received the most Facebook "Likes" and received the most comments so far! Please also visit the Re-Lilly event set up where you can see links to all the other beautiful ladies from Re-Lilly that entered, they would love your support too!

Last but not least I want to Announce that Re-Lilly has reached the 6000 Facebook Fan mark! I never would have dreamed that Re-Lilly would become such a HUGE success!

I am amazed that we have gone from 5000 fans to 6000 fans in just a few short weeks! We have a very special community and I look forward to announcing some new improved changes coming soon!

A little about our Sponsor, Graceful Correspondence...

Then (1999)
After countless visits to every specialty store within a 20 mile radius, I called my friend and told her we were out of luck; I just couldn't find exactly the right card for the combination birthday party we were throwing together for her son Connor and my daughter Grace. At midnight, that same evening, I decided to convert one of my fave photos to black and white; then, add color accents to create a sweet invitation that differed from the norm. Even at such a late hour, I was excited about my newfound craft! With encouragement from friends and family, Graceful Correspondence became an outlet for my creative side and knack with graphic design.

Now
Over the years I have enjoyed working closely with customers to create truly one of kind professional and personal products!


I encourage you all to visit Graceful Correspondence and browse her beautiful items!

Here is how you can ENTER TO WIN ALL THE PRIZES ABOVE: 1 Lucky Winner Gets it all and you have the chance to enter multiple times!
