A Winner and Friday Link-A-Loos

Ya'll are awesome! You thought of so many phrases and sayings that I had not thought about. I hope to be able to work on my Say It Like A Southern Gal page soon. I hope you keep thinking of more and letting me know.

Last night I had Matt pick a number for the giveaway and he picked Rebekah! I promise it's not rigged! Rebekah, I'll get your prize to you as soon as I know what it is! How's that for a responsible blogger giveaway? But it will be something nice, really nice. (says Eddie from Christmas Vacation.)

I sooo love reading blogs. I really do feel community with many of the women I read. I love that I have gotten to meet some of you in person and hope to get to meet many more. You make my day when you leave a comment and I find out more about you. I have found quite a few new blogs lately as I have been entering giveaways like a mad woman trying to win some Christmas presents. I won a CSN gift certificate on Rachel's blog and once I was there I have been trying to win more. You could do all your Christmas/birthday shopping at one time!

You can go to Frugality is Free and she has a linky each week with only CSN giveaways. She also has a weekly book giveaway linky. Many of the adult fiction are books I'm not interested in, but I love to get books for the kiddos. And free is even better!

This blogger doesn't post much, but when she does it is good stuff~Fish In My Hair. Funny stuff.

I love me some hot apple cider and this sounds really good~Hot Caramel Apple Cider at Snowflakes to Hotcakes.

I really want to try this-homemade noodles. It makes me think of my mom's homemade dumplings she used to make. Mark doesn't like dumplings or we would have chicken and dumplings here at least once a week.

And finally, my BFF, Rebekah, is having a big fund-raising/giveaway over at her blog. They are getting close to bringing their sweetie home. This would also be a great place to shop for Christmas gifts.

Today is a school day and this afternoon we are hitting the library. Tomorrow Mark is teaching Abbie's Heritage Girl Squad about fishing. The girls were so excited to be able to fish! I was like, "Really?" I'm more interested in sitting by the lake and reading a good book. But I'm boring and/or lazy like that. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I love the blogging community too :) Okay, super secret preview time...I'm going to do my first ever giveaway next week. It's a good one too :) Check back next week, I know you'll love it!

  2. Thanks for linking up to me!!! That's so sweet of you, and I'm honored! :-) You'll have to let me know how you like it. Rebekah, the lady whose blog I link to in my post, is such a sweet lady to let me share it. She's got tons of great recipes, and she's a trip, so be sure to check her site out too.

    I love your blog! I feel the same sense of community when reading blogs - some of the bloggers feel like old friends to me, even though I haven't met a lot of them in real life! and I'm in the "freakishly entering giveaways" mode too. We're doing homemade/regifted family Christmas this year, both to be frugal and to focus on meaningful gifting. I would love to win some sweet prizes from CSN!!!I'll look up that blog you mentioned.

    Thanks again for stopping by my little corner of the blog-world, and stop by again!!! :-)

  3. I feel the same way about blogs. Especially yours. You are one of those people I wish I knew in real life. You always make me laugh or think or offer encouragement, even when you don't know that what you've written has encouraged me! LOVE your blog and YAY to your winners! I just won my first prize EVER in the blog world and it might be enough to entice me to enter more give aways!!
