Giveaways and My Mess

Now you're going to have to be quick about this: Katie is having a little giveaway on her MiaMoo Designs blog here  and she's picking the winner sometime Friday the 21st.  She's made a pretty flower clip to wear as is or to clip on a headband - for small girls or big ones too.  

So if you have a special girl you could give it to (or if you heart it for yourself) get on over there, like NOW  and leave a comment to enter.  I should have posted about it earlier, but I'm just not responsible about anything this week.  She's only had a few people enter so you have a good chance to win - I'll tell her to wait until Friday NIGHT to pick a winner so more of you will have a chance.  Don't let me down, now!

NEXT - Craftily Ever After here is also having a snazzy little Valentines giveaway.  She's designed the cutest Valentine subway art that she'll send FREE to everyone who leaves a comment.  You just download it, print it, and frame it like she's done.  Such a cute red and white decoration for that romantic day!  So if I were you, I'd get on over there too and make sure you get a copy.

I have been up to no good.  My days have been spent at work (boring), and upon arriving home I've eaten dinner, walked our usual route and have collapsed into bed.  Nothing to write home (or on my blog) about, although today I had a bad hair day and had to wear my hair in a ponytail all day.  And I was bloated.  Aren't you glad you asked?  Tomorrow's got to be better.  And it will be - it's Friday!  I have no idea what the weekend will bring.  I tried to sound L out about what he had planned and he said something about maybe trying to get someone out to clean the carpets.  *crickets chirping*   *shaking head sadly*  Sometimes he's not a lot of fun.  But he's good for me because with no supervision I'd never get anything done.  I pull him away from over-obligation and duty, and he forces me to buckle down from time to time.  I asked him what he would like to do to relax over the weekend and he said he would like to go for a hike... So you see what I mean.  While a hike is not high on my list of fun, it is high on my list of what's good for me, so it works.  I guess.  Somewhere in the weekend, though, I plan to find some time to sit outside in the sun and read a book.  Now THAT'S relaxing.

Here is what my office looks like right now.  

Everything is all over the place waiting for my new thing to arrive with it's drawers and cubbies and shelves.  It comes on Monday.  Not a moment too soon, as I'm up to my neck in random messiness.  I'll finally be organized.  Until I tackle the beast called The Closet.


  1. I wish I had a white frame! That Valentine subway art is really cute! Good luck with getting organized.

  2. It's good when you can balance each other out!

    Like Katie, I also love the Valentine's art. AND her cute flower...


  3. Hope that bloating is under control today! :-) I'm excited for you to get your wonderful anniversary present.

    Have a glorious Friday!!

  4. Seriously TGIF! Spring cleaning comes early to my house too. I'm just finishing up organizing the dirty office, and a closet is next on my list too.

  5. I can't wait to see you new thing.
    Then you can show us your closet. LOL

  6. Aren't you so excited for Monday! I love anticipating the delivery of something wonderful... even if it's only dinner

  7. Just found you from Sue's News...Happy Anniversary and enjoy that new gift!!!
