Lily's Birthday Giveaway Week...day three

It's day three of Lily's Birthday Giveaway Week!


In case you're new here, Lily is turning TWO next Monday. To celebrate, we're giving away prizes every day here on A Perfect Lily...just our way of saying thank you for reading, and for loving our girl.

Yesterday's giveaway featured three hairclips from Lollipop Lane Boutique on Etsy. Random.org drew three winners, two for the bird hairclips...

Well, I don't have a girl.. But if I win this hair clip, that would be a clear sign to have her!! :)


(by the way, Sandryte: promise it was random.org not me! I say go for it;))

So happy for Lily's upcoming birthday. My girls hair is always in her face. She would look so cute in a birdie clippie!

And one winner of the elmo hairclip....

aimee said...

Those pillowcase dresses are the cutest I've ever seen! I think I need one of the owl squeaky toys too!





Congratulations, winners, please email me with your info so I can pass it along to the seller!

Don't forget that Lollipop Lane Boutique is offering a 15% discount for Lily's readers just by using the code LILY15 at checkout.

I would also love to get in touch with the winners of the Vintage Pearl gift credit as well as the Kindle Keyboard- Yvette and The Browning Family, please contact me asap!

Today's giveaway has been donated by one of Lily's most loyal readers, Mrs. Cathy Hanlon...


This gorgeous necklace from Talbots is valued at $60, and one lucky reader will be drawn from the comment section tonight at midnight...


Just leave a comment here telling me how long you've been a reader- even if you just arrived!- to be entered to win. A new prize and today's winner will be announced tomorrow...


And one more bit of fun...

Lily has a friend named Nella, who is celebrating her second birthday very soon as well. Lily and Nella share so much: sweet almond eyes, wispy blond pigtails, designer genes, and their birthday month...so will you go wish Nella a very happy second birthday? You might see a familiar face on that post ;)

Happy Wednesday!!

I have been a reader since summer of 2010 :) That is when I feel deeply in love with you, Lily, and the whole entire Rice family <3

Bambi said...

I started reading when Lily was a few weeks old but at that time I didn't have a blogger account. My computer died and I lost the link, then found it again probably early 2011, by which time I had a blogger account so cliked follow straight away .

Heidi Ehle said...

Been a loyal follower since 3/21/2011.... almost a year! And I just gotta day that it boggles the mind to see how much Miss Lily has grown up just during that time. :)
Liddy and I love you ladies! XOXOXO

I'm a missionary in Paraguay that just adopted a precious little girl. We are RR prayer warriors and we found you through them about a year ago. We want to wish Lily the best birthday ever!!

I started reading sometime between September 2010 and last March... Between getting Ellie's DS diagnosis and her birth. I know Lily was very much a BABY when I started reading!

breedwoman said...

I've been a reader less than a year. I started a search trying to find something besides the typical "mommy" blog and found you. Thank you for helping to open everyones eyes on how special and normal that extra chromosome is! It's time for our world to grow up and see these children as children and nothing else.

Jenn said...

I've been a reader for over a year, but haven't made a comment yet...I adore Lily. Happy 2nd Birthday, sweetpea!

Kristi said...

ive been a reader since blog hop last october...

nicole said...

I'm trying to remember exactly when I started following this blog and I think it was sometime in the fall of 2010.

That necklace is just beautiful ~ you have great taste Cathy!

Deanna said...

When did I become a reader? Um....why must I be forced to remember such tough things so early in the morning...(-:
Long, long time ago...I remember finding your blog and spending hours just searching through and reading, realizing that I had found a kindred spirit. And then you posted back on my blog something similar and said that your children were looking at pictures of Addison saying how cute she was. (-: Such good memories...

I've been a reader for almost a year! I love seeing what lily is up to :)

Mrs. K said...

I have been a follower since before Lily Anne was born. Does that count? I have been a follower since Notes from Home started. Hey, I have been a follower of the Rice family sans blog since before Mama rice became a Mama. But please do not count me in for a prize as my prize is all my Rice treasures. Lily Anne, keep a watch out for a birthday package from Papa and Grammi. Love you all, Mom/Grammi

Lori said...

Been following since before you started your blog ;)

Love those designer genes....so sweet....she looks so big!! Happy Birthday eve, eve, eve, eve, eve Lily!! Watch the mail for your present from Uncle, me, and all your cousins!!!

Danielle said...

I've been a reader off and on but I've been closely following for about a month. I enjoy seeing Lilly's sweet smile.

Hannah said...

I don't remember exactly when I started reading. I think I found you through either Kelle Hampton or Adeye Salem's blogs. I know it was over a year ago though, because I was reading Kelle's blog for a few months prior to Nella's big birthday bash! I hardly ever comment, but I love reading about your life with beautiful Lily :) ~Hannah

Holly said...

My daughter and i started following your blog last May. We love seeing your sweet Lily.

Janie Fox said...

I have been a loyal reader since we learned about our Ollie. Love seeing Lily in her wonderful pictures. I hope I win this fab necklace!!

Julie said...

I started reading around November (I think, maybe October...?) of 2010. It was the name that drew me in... my youngest is Lily, too. Now my oldest (at a whopping 3.5 years) Grace likes to "read" along with me. She's in it for the pictures, though. "Awwww, what a cute baby, mama!" is her reaction to every single picture we see. :)

angie said...

I've been a reader for at least a year. Finding your blog was like discovering a treasure.

Leah said...

Gosh its hard to remember when I started to read your blog my best guess would be Feb 2011 since I remember being around for the pure love giveaway.

Shauna said...

Patti, I've been reading for almost exactly 16 months. I started following a couple of days after Reagan was born and I have read every single post you have written (it took about three days to catch up when I started reading hee hee)I can't believe how Miss Lily has changed from a baby to a big girl!

Sarah said...

I have been reading over a year; I can't remember when I started, but I know it was before Lily was 1! :)

Sarah said...

I have only been a reader for two months, since we got a prenatal diagnosis of DS, and your blog is one of the reasons I'm now so excited to meet our little girl!

Mamadala said...

The first time I visited your blog, you wrote about Albina. That was the first time I'd ever heard of Reece's Rainbow or about the plight of orphans with special needs. I've checked in daily ever since! Lily hooked me! Thanks for all you do to advocate for the orphans.

Melissa said...

I've been reading for a little over a year now. Lovely necklace!

aimee said...

I think I've been reading a little over a year now! I remember reading about Lily's 1st birthday :) I look forward to your posts and check daily to read!

Elissa said...

Ive been reading since shortly after Abbie was born :-)

Jeannette said...

I think I've been reading here for about 6 months but I'm not really sure. In fact, I don't even remember how I got here but I check almost daily for new updates and pictures.

Kaiti said...

Been a reader since May 2011 when I found out Harper would have designer genes like Lily!

Sarah B. said...

Hello! I have been a reader for a year here! I love reading your blog because it has helped me show my family how beautiful life is with a child with special needs! I will adopt from RR once I am older and this blog has helped me share the love! Thank you, for sharing and for these great giveaways!God Bless.

Sharon said...

I've been a reader for a couple weeks! :)

Micah said...

I've only been a reader for a couple of months. In fact, in the beginning I thought you had adopted Lily because you were advocating for the precious children of Reece's Rainbow. :)

Erin Beaudette said...

I have been a very loyal reader since November of 2010, shortly before I fell in love with sweet Olga. I had heard a little about Reece's Rainbow but you totally opened my eyes to all of the children in need of love. Thanks Patti!
P.S. Love the book "One Thousand Gifts" you sent me. I just finished it and will NEVER view life the same again :)

Rachel Adcock said...

Not sure exactly when it was, but it was at the time you were doing the big Pure Love Giveaway to raise money for Peter! Love how that story turned out!!

Naomi Rice said...

Been a follower since the moment this blog was born =) I LOVE that necklace by the way!! SO beautiful!

Melissa said...

I don't remember the first day I came to your blog but I'm pretty sure it was sometime last year. So glad I found you. :)

Joanna said...

I have been reading your blog off and on since summer (?). I love all your advocating and Lily is just too yummy!

Amy said...

Gosh, it seems like I've been following for ages.... I guess sometime in the summer of 2010?? I really don't know! Feel like I've known you forever though. xoxo

Rachel Bretbunner said...

I have been a reader since November 2010!

melissamaren said...

I've been a reader since New Years Eve 2010! xoxo

Jessica said...

I've been a reader since early 2011. Hard to believe that Lily is almost 2!

Danielle said...

I'm pretty sure I inspired you to start blogging [[ahem]] although I've been folkowing this blog since about half way thru your pregnancy with Lils :). Love you Patti!

Nancy said...

I have been reading about 6 months now. I am hooked on Lily! I love the necklace. If I win, expect to see it when I visit my girl!

Susan H said...

I have been reading your blog for about six months and have fallen in love with Lily.

The Kirkland's said...

I can't remember when I started Reading, I think it has been a little over 6 months now. I can't even remember how I stumbled across the blog I love to read and check everyday. But I am glad I did! you introduced us to world we knew little about, and Reece's Rainbow! you have inspired me! and I look forward to many more post!

cara said...

I have been a loyal follower of your blog since last year. I cannot remember the exact month that I found you, but it has been over a year now. I will never forget finding out about Reece's Rainbow and searching and looking at all of those precious faces just horrified at their fate if not adopted. It seemed like all your blog entries at that time were the exact same emotions I was experiencing. You wrote the perfect words to how I was feeling. And then there was Olga. Oh, precious Olga. And now that I am remembering everything more clear, I actually began reading your blog, Notes From Home first, I believe. I fell in love with your sweet famiy, and of course, Lily. She melted me. Benji was born just months after her. It was such a blessing to connect with somebody on the same journey. Your kids reminded me so much of my kids. And we had SO much in common. And what a year this has been!!! You are a truly amazing lady Patti. I am SO thankful for you. You are touching SO many lives, and you are NOT ashamed to stand up for truth with love. Love you!!!
