First Time Blogger

The other day, Lisa charged me with the task of keeping the blog up-to-date. I am excited to do this, but a little nervous. Turns out, I have no idea what to say on the blog. I keep looking at all our favorites, and feel a bit intimidated by their wit, humor, and expertise.
So...I thought a good start would be to introduce myself to those of you who don't know me. My name is Kelli Odell. I have been happily married to Jonathan for almost 3 years.

I am the mother to these 2 beautiful kids, Concho and Willow.

I graduated from grad school in December with my teaching license. I am one project away from having my Master's in Education. (I am available for hire if there are any principals following us...)

And, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE working at LolaRue. I am blessed to say I actually look forward to going to work.

I love creating!
(This chalkboard was made out of vintage cabinet I found at my mother-in-law's house)
I love shopping here too!
Look at these cuffs and sterling silver charms we just received. Aren't they amazing? I wish I could win the $100 gift certificate we're giving away.
which reminds me...don't forget to post a comment and be automatically entered to win! Tell me how much you like my blue dress, or how Jonathan's curly, wind blown hair reminds you a bit of Charles Ingalls. Comment on how much you love LolaRue, or request a song for the playlist. Post a recipe or your favorite inspirational quote. It doesn't matter what you say...just comment so you can win! Drawing will be held August 7th.

August Rush

Summer is a lovely time in Bloomington, Indiana. Most of the students return home for the summer making it very quiet downtown...which means minimal traffic, lots of parking spaces, little to no wait time at your favorite restaurant on a Friday night, and plenty of time for the ladies of LolaRue & Company to shop, pick, and create new and exciting custom furniture, jewelry, and home decor.
But, August is only a few days away. Can you believe it? Soon the students will return, school will start, and Bloomington will be busy, busy, busy. And to celebrate the August Rush, LolaRue and Company is giving away a $100 gift certificate. All you have to do is leave a comment, and you will be entered to win. Drawing will be held on August 7th.
