TTUT-Announcing the RCL

Dennis: Hi. Dennis Duffy, Beeper King.

For a long time I’ve been searching for someone to partner up with on a new blog venture. I see coblogs, and team ups, like IA and SS, and I love the connections they seem to share. I wanted that! So when I started chatting on a daily basis with the lovely Janette Johanson, we got to brainstorming. We both love finding new products and ideas and sharing them with our readers, so why not have a blog that does just that? We’ve also brought Ashley from Cherished Bliss, an awesome DIY crafter and aspiring blog designer to round us out. Together we are the Red Carpet Ladies. We’ve been hard at work the past few months on a new website, which some of you already know about.

We still have a few kinks to work out, but we couldn’t wait to share it with you!
To kick things off right, we’re doing a give away for a Vera Bradley BAG valued at $84!!

We are giving away this adorable lime Vera Bradley bag. Doesn’t Janette make a great handbag model?

Head on over to the RCL website to enter the giveaway!


And the Winner Is…

George: [as the plane is about to crash] Jerry! Can you hear me?!
Jerry: Yeah.
George: There’s something I have to tell you!
Jerry: What is it?
George: I cheated in the contest!
Jerry: What?!
George: The contest! I cheated!
Jerry: What?! Why?!
George: Because I’m a cheater! I had to tell you.
Jerry: Great! I won! –Seinfeld

The winner of $25 in my first giveaway is Lindsay at Crafty Chic Mommy for her caption:

Superman I know it’s you, unveil yourself! Thank you to everyone that participated in my first giveaway! I let Match decide, and he cracked up at your captions, but thought the idea of him being Superman was just too appealing. 😉 Merry Christmas everyone!!

Tis the Season For Giving

The best gift I ever got was for Christmas when I was ten – my very first suture kit. I used it until my fingers bled, and then I tried to use it to stitch up my fingers. It put me on the path to becoming a surgeon. My point is sometimes the best gifts come in really surprising packages. -Meredith, Grey’s Anatomy

My favorite part of Christmas is seeing the looks on my loved ones faces when I give them their gifts. I love to make people I love smile or brighten their day. So in that spirit, I’m going to have my first ever Date Girl Diaries give away!! I wish I could give a gift to every one of my readers, but since there are about 80 of you, I’m going to have to pick just one. I told Match my idea of giving a gift to one of you, and he suggested we have a little contest. 🙂 Continue reading Tis the Season For Giving
