Hey guys! I know it’s been almost 3 weeks since I’ve posted any updates on our lives or what has been going on and I promise I have good reasoning for that. So, continue scrolling if you are interested in reading my list of excuses…

  1. I’ve been finishing up my LAST MONTH OF COLLEGE CLASSES. Y’all, I seriously have 9 days left until graduation where I can put school behind me, and put my Bachelor’s Degree in front of me. Aside from my children and my husband, this is THE biggest accomplishment for myself. Anyway, lots of homework has been consuming my nights leaving me with hardly enough time to brush my teeth let alone blog.
  2. Work has been busy (in a good yet hectic way). Lots of deadlines and lots of new things going on.
  3. Easter. Last weekend was Easter, and therefore we spent a good 2-3 days with family, uninterrupted by our phones, computers, and other time suckers. I promised I wasn’t going to write while my nieces were up, I wanted to spend as much time with them and my boys as possible during all of our fun egg hunts!
  4. Crafting. I promise this sounds worse than what it is, so I will elaborate on this specific excuse. I’ve gotten more orders in than I have ever had for new shirts, stickers, koozies, etc, and therefore I’ve been cramming my little crafting side biz into the little bit of time I have left after homework and dinner with the family. It’s been great, it’s been fun, and I think that my “customers” otherwise known as “family and friends” have been really excited and happy with their finished products!

So yeah, excuses aren’t super great, and I try not to make them because lets face it- nobody has time to deal with excuses. However, this just is what it is for the month of April.

So! Since you’ve made it this far in the post I figure now would be a good time to jump into the whole “giveaway” thing I mentioned in my headline. Yes, I’m going to be doing a giveaway… What do you have to do to enter? I’m glad you asked because it’s SIMPLE! Click on my main blog site: Picking Up The Pendrick’s and scroll just a smidgen until you find this box:


Enter your email to subscribe to my blog, and then you will get an email notification whenever a post is made (which as you know will go back to twice per week once I get myself back on track with time management). And BOOM, you’re done. Simple as that.

So what am I giving away??

You will have a choice between a personalized Koozie (I will contact you via email so that you can let me know exactly what you would like on it) OR:


This wonderful vacuum sealed coffee mug! I can personalize the bear to say anything, for example “mama bear” “auntie bear” “daddy bear” your name, etc. It’s a great quality mug and I’m super excited to be entering it into the giveaway!

So to set some guidelines and rules- If you don’t live locally I will ship it. You will have until next Friday May 3rd to enter your email before having the emails entered to be drawn at random.

I am super excited! If you have any questions you can contact me via email at ependrick@gmail.com

Good luck, and tune in on Tuesday for a new post! It’s going to be fun.

Until next time,
