"Big Mama" Rocks!!

Many of you have heard me talking about "Big Mama" lately. She is a gal down in Texas who does a fabulous blog ( that I thoroughly enjoy reading. So imagine my delight when she suggested doing a scarf giveaway on one of her "fashion friday" blog posts. I had no idea just how many followers she has until this morning! It is only 8:37 and she already has 161 comments from ladies who have checked out my site!!! To be honest, I am kinda freakin' out! I feel very exposed at this point... Thankfully, all the ladies have left such encouraging and wonderful comments that I am pretty much walking on cloud 9. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Melanie (a.k.a. Big Mama)!!! Now, go to her blog, check out her post, and follow her. It is way worth your time!!

Wow! what a wonderful night in Ali J Boutique world! I had met Karen McLaughlin at a past sale, and she then contacted me about a home sale. She decided to hold it at Deidra's and what a great turnout she had! I would say more, but I believe the *pictures* tell the story beautifully!

Four New Entries!! Yay!!

Yes!! It was a good day for the contest... although there are dozens of you who should be on here... Okay, here is the wonderfully genuine Katina, my dear cousin, in her teal Pashmina, and of course her excellent smile...

and here is Barb! She claimed to not be a scarf person, until the "Comfy Cotton" scarf converted her to a scarf lover. One simple swoop around the neck, very classy, Barb!!!

Next is one of my *best* models... My Mom-in-love, Bev. She is always sooooo put together with her style, so I am honored that many of my scarves have made it into her wardrobe!! Way to rock the green reptile sheer scarf, mom!

And lastly, the youngest entry in the contest, but definitely with a mind of her own.... My lovely daughter Emri.
