I Won A Great Giveaway!!!

Imagine my surprise when I receive a late night call on a Sunday night from my 'sister by choice' Holli telling me that I had one the best giveaway ever from TJ at Willow Bend Prims! I was in shock! I haven't won anything in so long I almost did not believe her until I saw for myself.

It took all my restraint not to fly out that door and tackle the mail lady when she started walking toward my front door with this big box from TJ. Take a look at all the wonderful goodies she sent me. Its hard to pick a favorite piece because I love them all but that little wax mold smelled wonderful!!!! I have it sitting on my dining room table right now until I find the perfect spot and it smells so good every time I walk by it.

I can't thank you enough TJ! I love all the special goodies you picked out just for me!!!


While I am on the subject of giveaways, I want to direct you over to my Sis's blog, 'Where the Rooster Crows'Holli is celebrating her one year blogaversary! Look at all the goodies she has for one lucky winner. Be sure to go over and check it out. You won't be disappointed.


Yesterday we left bright and early to head over to the hospital so Wendell could have an MRI ran. Despite the snow storm the night before we had very little trouble in getting there. In fact we got there almost an hour early. Thank goodness I brought my Sudoku book to occupy my time. Now we just have to wait until next Tuesday to hear the results. Hopefully there will be no new lesions and he is just experiencing a mild case of vertigo.


Not much else really going on around here. I need to get busy and work on Wendell's Valentines Day card and work on the menu for his special dinner using what I have here in my freezer and pantry. I am going to post my Strawberry Napoleon and Turtle Cake recipes tomorrow on my cooking blog for anyone who needs a great dessert. These are two of our favorites!

Right now if you check out the cooking blog you will find a great recipe for Caramel Corn. We really loved this stuff. It hit the spot for Wendell's sweet tooth!


I have fallen a day behind again on our Italian phrase for the day, so today we have two.

Prova a rilassarti.

pro-vah ah ree-lahs-sar-tee

Try to relax.


Stai scherzando.

You can't be serious.
