I Won! I Won!

I am definitely one of those people who always says "I never win anything". Now, I do win the occasional hand of poker during Ladies Poker Night, or at Team Sports like kickball and football, and 2 years in a row I actually won the office March Madness Pool. But Contests. They always seem to allude me. Always. But nope, not today. No sirree bob.

I'm the proud winner of a $40 gift certificate to CSN Stores from a giveaway on the fabulous Sunny's fun & craft filled blog, Life in Rehab! Thanks so much Sunny!

I've been looking through all the great things over at CSN Stores, but there's so much it may take me a while to narrow down what to buy! But stay tuned as I venture through the endless possibilities while trying to figure out which room is most deserving of a new treasure, courtesy of CSN and Life in Rehab!

Life in Rehab giveaway

So one of my regularly stalked blog friends, Sunny over at Life in Rehab is having a giveway - a gift certificate from CSN Stores! I found her blog thru another friend's and read from start to finish in 2 days (while at work - opps). She is creative and funny and a truly bright personality. Check out the giveaway by clicking here, but peruse her site while there, as there are so many very creative projects, and if you like spray paint, well you have GOT to bookmark her site.

Great Summer Read

Though summer is half over, there is still plenty of time to vacation and I highly recommend throwing this book in your beach bag. I read it on vacation last week and could barely put it down. It's "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett, and it's #5 on the NYTimes Best Seller List for Hardcover Fiction. Here's a synopsis:

In Jackson, Mississippi, in 1962, there are lines that are not crossed. With the civil rights movement exploding all around them, three women start a movement of their own, forever changing a town and the way women--black and white, mothers and daughters-

Now the only question is what in the world am I going to read on our next get away coming up soon?!?!

AHH, Back from Vacation...

...and totally relaxed. However, I think that one week is about all I can stand of being unplugged. I didn't bring my computer because there is no internet access at my parents' beach house and no neighbors strong enough to 'borrow' from!
I sure did miss all my blogger friends and now find myself here at work on Monday morning scrambling to catch up on everyone's happenings!!
I did manage to snap some shots of our 8 days of lounging around at the beach.
