Boost Your Roost Finalists – Time to Vote!

July 30th, 2012

Good morning everyone, hope you had a nice relaxing weekend!  Today is the day the Boost Your Roost finalists have been announced and now is the time to vote!  It was an extremely difficult selection process and all of the bloggers involved had to choose just one.  I settled on the Williams family and I’m hoping they win a kitchen remodel!

Dawn and Alex Williams of Florida live in a 2 bedroom 2 bath 1,100 square foot bungalow.  Dawn is a special education teacher and with their busy schedule they’ve run out the energy and funds to deal with their crumbling kitchen in dire need of remodel.

Their home has no insulation, and their entire kitchen runs on one electrical circuit (crazy I know!) which means they must plan which appliance to use at which time to avoid tripping the breaker.

The particle board cupboards are falling apart and they have no pantry to store any food for their growing family.  Dawn doesn’t feel comfortable inviting friends or family over because of their poorly functioning kitchen.

 

 Can’t you see a complete kitchen remodel here?  New floors, cabinets, countertops, appliances - $20,000 would completely transform this space.  The Williams family needs your vote!

Head on over to the Boost Your Roost contest to read more of Dawn’s story (plus all six finalists’ stories).  Vote once a day until August 13th!

Link Party Reminder + A Friend in Need

July 29th, 2012

Hey everyone, happy weekend to you all!  Just popping in to remind you I’m hosting another Fair Weather Link Party on Tuesday, this time it’s all about good books!  I’ll be writing about one of my most favorites, so if you’ve read a book that’s motivating, inspiring, comical, educational, or just plain fun, link up on Tuesday at 8 a.m PST!

Also, a good friend of mine is experiencing some difficult financial times since she tragically lost her husband earlier this year.  Colleen of Mural Maker is in need of some help and encouragement.  Read the details over at Pretty Handy Girl and donate what you can.
