Win It: Mary Kate McDevitt.

Mary Kate McDevitt’s Mini Goals Chalkboards were first introduced to me a few months ago and I fell in love. Not only is the idea of accomplishing a few things a day easier to digest than a lengthy list, but it’s also much more palatable when written down on something as lovely as one of her chalkboards. Do you see that beauty of a chalkboard sitting above? Mary Kate made it just for us and it could be all yours.

To Enter, Tell Me:
1. What are two things that you need to cross off your To Do list today?
2. Your email address, to be notified should you win (those who do not will be disqualified)
3. Do it all before Monday, December 7th at 9am CST

Check out the full range of Mary Kate’s Mini Goals Chalkboards on her flickr site, right here!

    To Do Today:

    1. Drop bridesmaid dress off at the cleaners to be steamed/ironed or whatever it is they do to make dresses perfectly flat in all the right places and rouged in all of the others. I'm the MOH at my best friend's wedding this Saturday night so I don't want any wrinkles to be showing during my speech.

    2. Buy groceries specifically for making delicious lunches 4 days out of 5. It's part of my man and my new financial plan – starting to save for a new apartment!
