My second ever giveaway!

So after several days of rain, we had a clear beautiful day, and Mark and I headed out to do a little Christmas shopping. We went to the big outdoor mall where I have my seasonal job at Crate and Barrel (gotta use that employee discount!).

This is why I haven't made any money at that job:
I'm in Crate all day, and then I come out to have Anthro staring me in the face. I never had a chance.
While the incessant rain lately has made it difficult to get things done, it has brought snow to the local mountains, which is pretty.

We had fun shopping. Maybe too much fun, as we bought more for ourselves than others :/ One of the things we bought for ourselves is a pair of these pretty white stone votive holders from West Elm.
I loved them so much I bought a second pair to share with one of you!
To enter, simply leave a comment on this post. Followers get an extra entry! I will choose a winner randomly on Friday. Happy holidays!


  1. yay giveaways! i wouldn't stand a chance working there either. they are evil to put two such awesome stores next door to each other.

  2. I worked at Gap during the holidays for three years... one of which I spent ALL of my paycheck on clothes and gifts!

  3. Since I don't have either store in my neck of the woods, I think I deserve this giveaway. Right?

    Right? ;)

  4. I'm glad to finally figure out in which Crate and Barell's store you are working. I have a thing for collecting drinking glasses, and mugs in different shapes and colors, which isn't that great according to Todd since they take up a lot of space in the kitchen :). For Christmas I told Todd I only wanted a coffee cup for $3 that I saw at Vons - I just couldn't resist the color!
    My parents says hi, hope to see you soon!

  5. I love all of those stores...sounds like an awesome shopping center. And I'd love a chance to win!

  6. Our Crate & Barrel is up at this huge mall that is one of the biggest in the country and it's so annoying to drive anywhere near there, let alone at Christmastime. So I'm limited to their website only. Anthro on the other hand is right next to my's window shopping only though!

  7. I love West Elm and I don't have one near me! Great giveaway.

  8. I know what you mean about Anthropologie, I go in there and I don't want to come out. Love their stuff!

  9. How someone can get a job and end up with less money than they started with is beyond me! Just another mystery of Ashley Morgan I suppose...:0)

  10. Honey don't put me in the drawing, your mom said she was getting me stones for Christmas.
    Love, dad.

  11. I would be in the same situation if I worked at Crate and Barrel. And I love some some Anthro!
