Welcome to the weekend. This is the place to catch up on anything you may have missed during this week. An exciting milestone: we passed 1000 likes on Facebook, so for those of you who told your friends and family that buying American is important to you, thank you.

The week started when USA Love List Fashion Editor Jill Homiak showed us how to take our neutral foundational style pieces into spring with bright, current colors, using all American-made fashion of course.

Tuesday was the last day to vote for American-made products in the Walmart Get On The shelf contest. The final round starts next week and if any of the final products are made in the USA, we'll keep you posted.

Are you from Oregon? Know anyone who is? Want to go? Catch up with our latest guest post in our State-byState series.  Jeff Rose of FabOregon.com wrote about his top ten products made in Oregon and we welcome your nominations for more favorites in the comments.

Last week's giveaway continues with TWO prizes from Splash Tags. Winners will each receive their choice of three sets of Splash Tags and a set of glasses to help them kick off their summer entertaining. Splash tags are one of the most delightful Made in USA items we have encountered so we're thrilled to be able to share them with you.

We also launched a new giveaway this week. Have you heard that the latest viral kid trend is made in USA? If you have or know a school-aged kid, they are going to want to win a free pack of Eraselets.

We ended the week with a post from our Beauty Editor, Angie Barnes. She gave us the scoop on how to get a pretty spring glow using self-tanning products made in the USA. She wants to hear your comments and questions on Twitter.

We received lots of nice notes this week via email and our contact form.. Send us an email or drop us a note. Let us know how we're doing and what you'd like to see more of. Have a wonderful weekend…
