This was my first giveaway so I was unsure of how it would go.  I appreciate everyone’s support and getting involved.  Several of you were willing to share on you sidebars, facebook and twitter and I thank you for that as well.

I would like to especially thank Jami at Freckled Laundry.  She shared my giveaway on her blog and sent a ton of new followers my way.  So welcome to all who came through Jami and I hope you are glad you came!

If  you haven’t already found Freckled Laundry, it is definitely worth a visit.

As I mentioned the other day, my cup is overflowing.  I spent the last few days with surprise visitors from Nevada and before that from NH and MA.  And before that, on Saturday, so many people came from near and very far to celebrate my 40th birthday.  I feel so much gratitude and thanks for my family who pulled this challenging surprise off for me.

And now, for my late giveaway for 200 followers, I am actually over 300!

Wow, it is a lot in a week.

My girls are home on break this week.  This is the first time we have ever had a February break so we made a bunch of plans of fun things to do.  Plus, I planned to get a lot of work done.

Well, work is loosing on this one.  We are going to the movies and we are going to the “big” mall and we are bringing friends and hoping to have lots of fun.

Trying to fit it into half of the week is a challenge, but everything else has to go, including cleaning my house.

But, I am not going to lie.  I have a hair appointment on Friday and I am not letting that go!  A girl has to got to cover her gray!  Especially when she is days from turning 40!

Have an amazing one!  And thanks so much for all that I have found through this blog and through all of you!
