...because home doesn't happen overnight.

*THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.*

Congrats to Melanee who just purchased a new house and needs to lighten it up!

I’ve been on a lighting kick recently. We’ve yet to find ‘the one’ for our master bedroom. But that’s okay. The hunt is half the fun. That’s why when Lamps.com contacted me about a reader giveaway, I was game. Seriously. Does anyone else spend way too much time browsing lighting fixtures online? Be honest. That’s what I thought. Prepare to waste some time being wowed by  inanimate {yet glowing!} objects.

lamps.com

From table lamps to living room ceiling lights to ceiling fans, Lamps.com has a wide variety of styles to choose from. On top of that, the bulb{s} required for your new light are shipped to you FREE along with your purchase. How cool is that?! Could you use some more light in your life? Great! See entry details below.

PRIZE: $150 gift card to Lamps.com

RULES: You must be at least 18 years old and have a U.S. shipping address. One entry per email address.

TO ENTER: Leave a comment on this post proclaiming “LIGHTEN UP!”

DEADLINE: Enter before Thursday, September 20th at 9:00 p.m. EST. One random winner will be announced Friday, September 21st.

WHILE YOU’RE AT IT: What/who do you need to lighten up on? Sweet treats? The kids? The impossible task of keeping your house spotless? I’ll go first. I think I need to give my kids a break. Does it really hurt anything if Everett wears five costumes in one day? Or if Layne  takes ten minutes to brush his teeth? No, really it doesn’t.

I could really lighten up and enjoy the process (in everything). Sometimes it’s about the journey not the destination.

I need to lighten up about my endless “to do” list. If I can remember to just keep moving forward, one thing at a time, I know that before long I will look at my list and see many items checked off and completed. Keep moving forward!

I need to lighten up on cleaning my house. I’m so anal about everything being in such an exact order that I don’t really LIVE in my house :(

Lighten up! I need to lighten up about trying to clean and organize my mom’s house whenever I visit her. I like clean uncluttered space with “room to breath”. She prefers cozy with stacks of books magazines and just stuff. I need therapy after visiting. :)

My husband would probably say I need to lighten up on getting the house done. But seriously, the whole house needs to be redone and in 2 years we have only painted(which I no longer like lol), put in a new dining room floor, replaced the subfloor in 3 bedrooms, and almost finished the bathroom. That’s right, almost. All that is left is the trim, painting the door, and decorating. But I don’t think it will ever get done! Hmm, I think this post turned into a vent! Anyways, free lighting would be a fun relief!

I will add that my husband works very hard in a stone quarry and is beat by the time he gets home so I do forgive him! I love and appreciate him for everything he does.

I could lighten up on myself! I’ve been pushing myself to workout, keep the house clean all the time and I’m working and we have kids. I beat myself up if I miss a day at the gym, or eat a cookie, or didn’t finish a load of laundry before Monday morning. It’s time for me to LIGHTEN UP!

I need to lighten up on my new house. We moved in barely a month ago and there’s soo much work to be done – but I want it all finished immediately! I need to relax and remember that it just takes time (well, and money).
