Hello bloggy friends! I am giving away one custom open circle necklace and three "love" necklaces with a small round disc. Tomorrow evening at 7pm, Steve will randomly pick the winners. If you'd like to participate, just leave a comment and tell us your favorite day of the week and why. I'll ship anywhere in the US, but if you are out of the country you might have to help with shipping (probably $7). Happy Monday!!

Hi Lisa,
My favorite day of the week is Saturday because I get to cuddle in bed with my husband and our son, Dillon. We also get to spend the day together doing whatever, since he doesn't have to work.

I also wanted to thank you for the wonderful necklace for my sister-in-law - she loves it and wears it all the time :) and I love the earrings you sent also - so fun!

Thanks again,

Molly said...

I have to go with Friday -- last day of the work week and the beautiful anticipation of the weekend. (Also of course every other Friday is payday -- and I am planning to order something when the next one comes on June 8! :)

Tuesday is my favorite day of the week.
It is TARGET Tuesday at our house.
Mondays we stay home & clean from the weekend.
So Target Tuesday is just a great get out of the house day.
We usually do Target, then hit the zoo or a park, have a fun lunch out together & just have a nice fun day with no responsibilities!!!
Yeah, will be here tomorrow you know!!!

Natalie Putnam said...

My favorite day of the week is Thursday because it always seems like thursday is the day that my whole family is home. We like to eat a really good home cooked meal and watch all our favorite shows. Each week, I can't wait until thursday is here!


Kristen Borland said...

yea!!!! i hope i win!!

TUESDAY!!! I love Tuesdays. For one, it means Monday is over. This past year Tuesday hasn't been as great because Mike was gone in the evenings for Awana. But that's over now! Other than that, Tuesdays have always been good to me. Even in high school it was my favorite day--just much more cheerier than any other day--and my ex-boyfriend's best friend nicknamed me Ruby Tuesday because of it.

zeb borland said...

SUNDAY--because my whole family is home and i get to go to "cool" (translation: "sunday school").

Nehemiah Borland said...

SATURDAY--because we get to play with daddy!!

borlands said...

okay, so that should mean we have three chances to win. :)

Meg said...

My favorite day of the week is SUNDAY! It is the one day that I can count on. It's always so consistent. I know I'll get the entire day with my hubby and little boy. After church we come home, eat, and take a nap (the only day of the week that I get to nap). Then we get up and bring a dessert over to my grandparents' and spend the rest of the evening with all of my family (I'm blessed to have pretty much all of my family live in the same town). I LOVE Sundays!

chrissie said...

The Borlands are cheating!
Just kidding!

Can sisters win?

I love the question and I love reading everyone's answers. Target Tuesday, that is so cute! Target is truly the adult version of Disneyland.

My favorite day of the week is Saturday. Sleep in, make chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast, go out to lunch and hang out with friends or family in the evening. It's usually a day when we just do what we want. So much of our time is so "scheduled." It's nice to just go with the flow.

Bethany said...

What if I can't decide? Tuesday is vegetable pick-up day and we all love that errand. Wednesday is stay at home day. Ditto there. Nothin's quite like Friday afternoon. But I think a lazy Sunday after church may have them all beat.

sarah vrolyk said...

Hi, Lisa! First off, let me just say that I LOVE your designs.

My favorite day of the week would have to be Sunday. Love going to church with my family and then relaxing the rest of the day!


bethany said...

it's hard for me to pick a specific day. i think that each day has something fun or interesting about it. you have to look at each day with open eyes and see the beauty of it. mondays - the beginning of the week, it's a fresh start, last week doesn't matter anymore. thursdays - my favorite day of work for some reason. i enjoy being there on thursdays. fridays - a great night for a bonfire and hanging out with friends and family. sundays - good food and laughing and enjoying my family's company. it's hard not to enjoy life in general.

Michelle B said...

Saturday - because while it might be busy - it's filled with doing things I want to do instead of things I have to do (i.e. work). And it is still one more day until going back to work. Giving way to another day I get to spend with my favorite boys.
Your jewelry is beautiful!

Kate said...

Hi Lisa, wow! you're getting a lot of comments on this one. :) Well, I guess I'd have to say that Sundays are my favorite days. I love having Travis home. He makes everything so cheerful. And I love starting out our day with Church. A wonderful time worshipping the Lord and then a great time to see and visit with friends on a spiritual level. Then the rest of the day is ours! A yummy lunch, naps, a hike, extended family time, the girls get to play with Daddy, an evening Bible time. Ahh, just wonderful! My fav.!

Kuckie said...

I say Monday! I'm the only one of my friends that doesn't work on Mondays, so my son and I just spend the day playing and relaxing after his sister gets off to school. There are never any plans with anyone, and we just do whatever we want. I Love Mondays!

Thanks your stuff!

Joy said...

I think mine is Monday.. it is a start to a new fresh week.

Miracles said...

Hi Lisa, I received my open circle necklace on Friday and just love it! Thanks so much for a great job!!
I definetly want to qualify for the free bee, I just love it's design as well.
I honestly have to say that all seven days are my favorites, I get to wake up to two beautiful smiles and enjoy their giggles all day long.
I can't imagine my week or weekends any other way.

Thanks again for a fabulous job!!

Gretchen said...

Hi Lisa,

My favorite day of has always been Thursday as I start to look forward to the weekend. But really, every day is pretty great as I get to spend them with my kids!
Thanks, Gretchen

Katie Lady said...

Wednesdays were always my favorite day when I was working b/c as they say it's 'humpday' meaning once you get over the hump of the middle of the week, you coast to the weekend. But, after I got married Wednesdays meant "date nite" with my awesome husband...well into our son's second year of life we had the best babysitter ever each WED. nite. we miss her so! Now, we pray together for an extended period of time on those Wednesday nites after the boys have gone to sleep-so refreshing!

Cate said...

I like Friday, because the whole weekend stretches out ahead of us.

Jacquelyn said...

Wednesday is the most perfect day of the week for me because I have a tea party with some ladies in the morning (for the past 6 months), and Growth Group in the evening. It is also the one day a week my house is perfectly clean (because of all the company that comes over.)

Denise said...

I was just reading yesterday about a women who had alzheimers, who thought everyday was Sunday. She'd ask, "aren't you going to get ready.. we don't want to be late." Her profound experiences in worship made her always want it to be Sunday!
I love worshiping as community, coming together, fighting, praying for,resting in truth, Eating the book. Tasting a bit of Heaven every Sunday.
BTW- the Borlands are very wittty :-)

Michelle said...

Saturday is my favorite day. It's so nice to have the whole day to plan for whatever you like...being productive with errands and projects, or just having fun with friends and family. Getting up early doesn't seem nearly as painful on Sat as it does during the week...because it starts "my" time!


Anonymous said...


My favorite day of the week is any day that I get to see any of my 3 (soon to be 4) grandsons!

ps. I love reading about your boys.

Anne Albright

kim said...

Saturday! Fun Family Day!!

I just found your blog and love your designs. I will be ordering soon!

Kim :)

Christal said...

Tuesdays...hands down. Every Tuesday is a short day at school. 'Nuff said. :)

J said...

Strangely I have two...Friday because it means the husband is home for the weekend and Monday because it means he's done with being home ;)

Lara said...

Wow, you have a lot of people that read your blog! This is a really fun idea! My favorite day of the week is Sunday. My husband makes us breakfast, I get to get all dressed up and then spend the morning singing. I love to sing. In California, Sundays meant lunch with the Heldts and usually the Hawkins or sometimes even the Leonards, which I looked forward to all week. Now we usually take an afternoon nap which is not quite as fun as lunch with friends, but still nice. =)

shawn said...

I like Mondays a lot. Getting things back in order after the weekend, a new chance with fresh lists, and clean laundry and sheets. But Saturday is pretty great too, love sleeping in, then spending the day with the whole family.

Love your jewelry- love the simplicity, yet so meaningful and cool!

Laura said...

Wow!I'm leaving a comment!I never leave comments, I only lurk. :-) I love your jewelry so now I must comment!
My favorite day is Thursday. Great TV at night and the whole weekend is ahead, plus my husband works from home that day! A little extra help with the kiddos!

KirstyB said... kind of you!!! My favorite day of the week is getting up early...the whole family is home...nothing better than time together!! :)

Jessica W said...

Definitely Friday... always nice to have 2 days of family time to look forward to! Thank you so much for the opportunity to win some of your beautiful work!

Erica said...

I like Saturdays because that is the day that "Dada" is home to help with the kids!

Jenny Fugler said...

Okay, Kate spread the "good news"! I want a chance to win a necklace too!! My favorite day of the week has got to be Friday - whenever Travis gets home from flying. We have 2 1/2 whole days to be just US and date and laugh and play games together. I love it... So, Friday night. Final answer. (Steve, pick me! Pick me! *crossed fingers*)

lindsey said...

holy cow! apparently if you want comments on your blog you need to give something wonderful away!
my favorite day of the week is whichever one my husband is able to take off - it changes every week. i love having the whole family together so much more than having time all to myself. but i also love wednesdays because i get to have lunch with my lovely friend lisa (wink, wink)!

jean said...

ok...i love winning stuff, so i'm in! since i am a stay-at-home mom of little ones, i feel like every day is saturday...but the real saturday is the BEST because, if mark is in town, then it is daddy's morning with the boys for outings/special time/whatever which means my morning off!! and at this point in my life, it's ALL about some time off!

erika said...

There isn't a day of the week that can guarantee happiness or trouble. Each day around here is full of the unexpected, and that's just fine with me.

BUT, there was a time I can remember the day of the week being extremely important to me, and that was the day my daughter Nicole was born. My labor was average, (or so says my dula.) And by that she means 24 hours of pain, that you cannot sleep through, and that grows progressively more painful until the baby is born. Anyway, I was in the throws of labor, and in the 24th hour, when the doctor on call says to me, "You are doing awesome. You can take your time and we can go into tomorrow, which is NO PROBLEM. OR, if you really want to push it, this baby will be born on a Sunday." INTO TOMORROW AND THAT"S NOT A PROBLEM! OH NO! I AM NOT DOING THIS FOR ONE MORE DAY!" It was then that I purposed in my mind, that my baby would be born on the Lord's Day, if I had to die trying. (Which by that time, I was pretty sure would happen :) So my 8 pound 15 ounce baby girl was born at 11:45 p.m. on the Lord's Day. Thank you Lord! Sunday is my favorite day.

Sue said...

Hi Lisa, I've just recently "discovered" your artwork and have enjoyed your blog too . . . my fav day of the week is Wednesday! It's my middle of the week day off and i can stay in a create all day or shop or walk or anything!!

michele said...

Hey Lisa, 39 posts so far...this is getting intense!
I'd say my favorite day is Thursday because it's our play chores or school or work. I feel like I enjoy the kids/being a mom the most on Thursdays because I'm not rushing around. Plus, The Office is on Thursdays, and I LOVE that show.
Pick me, Steve!!!!

Anonymous said...

Wow! You're popular! (Or is it your jewelry?) :)
FRIDAY because it's movie night and dessert night, according to the kiddos.
I owe you a dinner, girl! I just don't know what to make that's South Beachy! Gimme some ideas, please!

Anonymous said...

I hope I win the one that says "Chloe and Connor"...I've always liked those names.

Jeannett Gibson said...

Holy cow you are popular! Now you can see how many "lurkers" you have on your blog!

My fave day is Saturday...Andy and I sleep in, I make a big waffle breakfast (from scratch not the box mix) and we lounge around in our PJ's until at least noon! Wonder how long that'll last when the baby gets here! :)

Susan Slagle said...

Hi Lisa,
I'd like to thank you for the beautiful necklace that you made for me, through my sister-in-law, Rachel. I absolutely love it and wear it every day!!!
My favorite day of the week is Friday, because its the end of the week and everyone in the family gets done with their busy week and we can relax as a family and enjoy some time together without all the hustle and bustle.
PS: I love all your awesome jewelry!

Carrie Borsgard said...

I want to play!!!

My favorite day of the week is Saturday, because it is the one day that I get to sleep in during the week! Blessed sleep!! :0)

I love contests and raffles!


Sonya said...

Thank-you for this fun "e" vent :)

Monday is my new favorite day, because after making 4 babies in 6 house was really never ever clean.......and now I clean the bathrooms and vac and sometimes mop and even more if inspired on MONDAYS and I feel so incredibly good about it I want to get up and dance!!!!


Anonymous said...

Hi Lisa,

I love your work! I definitely want in on this giveaway. My favorite day of the week is Sunday because I get to go to church and learn something new about God :)

Ellen said...

Holy Macanole! Fourty eight people have responded to this blog! I like how you're making Steve the heavy. If your name doesn't get picked, blame him.

My favorite day...Saturday! I sleep in, eat a yummy breakfast, run errands, take a nap, and basically do whatever I want.

Chantel Arnett said...

Saturday - because I have to go back to work in 3 weeks and I know I'm going to get to spend the whole day with my new baby boy on Saturdays!

Ani said...

Hi - how exciting!
My favorite day of the week is Friday - in our house we call it "the start of another fun-filled weekend". I wake up and count the hours until I can pick up our baby from day care, and then together we wait for daddy to burst out of work early... The anticipation of 2 whole fun, free days... what a joy!!!!

Angela said...

My favorite day of the week is Saturday because it's family day. The one day we all get to be together all day having fun.

Anne L said...


I have loved Thursdays for a long time. It's a nice normal weekday, but you know the weekend is so close you can taste it. Once the weekend comes it's over so fast, but Thursdays are for savoring what's coming up.
And then there's must see TV ;)

Brianna Heldt said...

my favorite day of the week is friday, when kevin has the day off (every other friday he has off). it's great because it's the beginning of a long weekend!

*natalie* said...

my favorite day of the week is tuesday. no work for me, no school for ethan. just all day for our family of 4 to hang out.

LollyGirl said...

I LOVE Thursdays!!! It's the pre-weekend day and it makes me feel like I'm smooth sailing to the weekend! And I usually have all my work done by then so we can just PLAY! I love to celebrate the arrival of Thursday.

I just happened to see your link on "My Happy Little Life" and thought I'd check it out. I was admiring the open circles when I discovered I had the opportunity to win won--woohoo--great timing!!

Jessica said...

My favorite day of the week is Saturday. This is the only day that my husband and I have off together. I love to hang out with him all day no matter what we are doing.


Anonymous said...

I have 2 favorite days, 1)Thursdays of course because my miracle son was born at 25 weeks, so I am greatful for that day and 2)3pm everyday because that is when I pick up my son James after work and my husband gets home soon after and we love and play until bed I sometimes wish the day would never end. Good luck to everyone posting. Thanks for the chance and for sharing your wonderful family with us all. Tracy

Jen Peet said...

wow lisa it is so evident that you are so loved. How fun to read all of the comments! I love your honesty and wilingness to share your life with us all!

So for a day of the week i would have to say Saturday. . . sleep in. . . make a yummy breakfast . . . drink my coffee slowly. . . read . . . and stay in my pjs for a while pretending i might not have to go anywhere for a while! oh love it!

Becky said...

Lisa- look at all your blog contacts! As comment #59 I would have to say Friday. It use to be my day off and it meant sleeping in, staying in my pj's and the beginning of a three day weekend. Now it's my goal to have all the housework done before Friday! (Don't ask how often that happens!) Becky

Anonymous said...

My favourite day of the week is Friday (cos the weekend is close!). I love it as it means that I get to spend 2 whole days with the man of my dreams, Keith. I also get to do all things that are important to me and can spoil and be me.I'm from South Africa, but I'll be willing to pay the charges to have a piece of jewellery made by you Lisa - I love your work and love reading about your beautiful family. Take care and I'll check in later to see who the lucky winners are.
Karen Lamb - let me know if I'm a winner on this comment page and I'll send you my details ....

Kell said...

Well my favourite day used to be Saturday. JIm would be home from work and we would all have a lazy morning together. As our brood expanded this Sat morning gagglein our living room turned into a bit of a stress minefield with bored big kids, a toddler and a newborn. Still fun for mum and dad, not so much for the 'pre-teens' who wanted to go play on the x-box or whateva!

I must admit now with a little shame that my favourite day of the week iS Monday. Big kids packed off to school and mimi G:Sylvie off to nursery all day and so I am left home alone with my little guy all day. Me n Sonny Boy. We just chill, watch tv, go for a walk, visit a friend or do stuff all. We nap my big king sized bed and wake up with our hot faces touching and his hair sticking to his head.
Just Sonny and I for hours and hours. It doesn't matter if it wet weather or glorious sunshine. If he's poorly we have a lazy day, if he's well we go adventuring.
Soon enough the rest of the pack returns to the fold and Sonny gets passed over to Dad or his older siblings but my one eye is always o him until his bedtime. Then I dedicate myself to the rest of the gang until their bedtimes. Then its Daddies turn! ;)

Solidia said...

Sunday is my favorite day of the week. After years of working every Sunday, my husband is finally able to have Sunday as one of his days off. We are able to attend church as a family, have brunch together, and then enjoy the rest of the day together. I love it! and so do our girls!!

I also love reading your blog!:)

Karen said...

Wow! The odds of winning are getting pretty slim! :)
I love Saturday because I (usually) don't have to work, and I (usually) have the whole day to spend with my husband and kids!

Anonymous said...

Definitly my favorite day is monday. Monday because my lovely boyfriend comes to see me for lunch! monday because the house quiets down! monday because I love the bustle of the city! monday because we have soccer! I LOVE MONDAYS! And why not enbrace the beginning of the week eh?



Kim B. said...

I just bought a piece for my niece and received it yesterday. LOVE IT!!! Can't wait to order one for myself. Beautiful work.

Kim B. said...

Suppose it would have helped had I read your entire post. I like Sundays because I can cuddle with my 2 cats until late in the morning. It's a slow quiet day and I like to savor it. But, I still LOVE the piece I ordered.

S.Lamont said...

Oh how I loooove Mondays.
A whole sense of renewal, you know?
A clean house.
A new diet :)
A new week.
A fresh start.
Just something beautiful about it...


altagirl said...


My favorite day is Friday - my work closes the office at 11:00 on Fridays and I get to go home with my son and just have us time. Love it Love it.

Thanks Lisa

Tranae said...

My favorite day of the week is Thursday because my husband works midnights and weekends and Thursday is one of the only nights our two boys and I get to spend with him.

My friend that is adopting from Guatamala loved her necklace. Thanks!!

Janet said...

My favorite day is Saturday, also known as "stay home day" and "donut day" by my five-year old sweetie. Love my pearl/heart necklace!!


Teresa said...

Okay, I really don't need another necklace, I think I may have the largest collection of Lisa Leonard jewelery other than Lisa herself (thanks sis-in-law!), but I have to drop a note that I too am reading and loving her blog. I love Saturday because I can sleep in! The kids are home from school, their daddy is home from work, and we get family time.

Glad David is better. Love you guys!

Anonymous said...

I love Sundays. I start the morning listening to my husband teach from God's Word in my Sunday school class. Galations has been wonderful and the teacher is easy on the eyes:) and then we worship corporately with others who love Christ. A little taste of heaven in Warsaw, IN. I pray my boys grow to love Sundays as much as I do.

Oooo, pick me! Pick me! It's been so fun reading all of these comments! My favorite day of the week is Tuesday ... I was married on a Tuesday (7/14/03) and my son Aidan was also born on a Tuesday (9/26/06).

Lisa, you do such lovely work! I am wearing one of your necklaces right now!


Shannon said...
