Be Careful What You Say... & A Give Away

     My husband decided to spend some time at his shop this morning.   About 10 seconds after he left, I heard a knock at the door. I was a little irritated that he was going to make me get up out of my comfy chair,  to unlocked the door (when he could easily have retrieved the spare key from our secret hiding place), so I yelled at him "ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!"   But, I hurried quickly finally went to open the door.  Much to my embarrassment, I quickly realized it wasn't my hubby... instead it was the mailman!!!   He was walking to the neighbor's house, but he turned back with a weird look on his face.  Yikes!  I hope I didn't scare him.   

     Anyways...on to the exciting part of  being forced to get up from comfy chair. There on my porch was a box.   My prize was here!!!!  I ripped carefully  opened the box, and there is was... my winnings from  Teacher Bits & Bobs.   

     Do you know how hard it is to take a picture with a glass frame...the glass causes all kinds of problems.  Trust me, this picture does not give it justice.   Anyways...I love it and I think I will save it for my hubby for Valentines Day.  Shhhh!!!!   Thank you Kerri!!!

On to something very important to me...

Beth Ann from Taming My Flock of Firsties is giving away something that would go perfectly with my recent prize.  I really do hope I win it!!!!!  Keep you fingers crossed for me okay!  If you win, I suppose I'll get over it.  I even almost decided to not blog about it, but she is giving me another entry if I blog about it ... so just read this little paragraph and forget you ever read it okay!  Click on her cute button below only if you decide that you want to check it out.
