Giveaway WINNER!!! & Getting to know You {Me} Randomness

First off, thank you to everyone who entered my custom blog design giveaway!

I recruited the help of my very "spirited" two year old to pick a name for me out of the bowl.

And, the winner is...Myranda!  Congratulations!!! {an email has been sent to you, Myranda}


I had a craft post all set to go for today, but decided to switch things up a bit.

I don't know about you, but when I find blogs that I enjoy reading and visiting, it's always a little more fun when you connect with the blogger or feel like you have "stuff" in common with them.  So, I'm going to share a bit of randomness about myself with you {which was prompted by this award nomination...Thank you, Jackie}.

Lately, I have had an incredible increase {for me/my little blog} in traffic to my blog and a number of new followers.  THANK YOU to everyone who has been stopping over and following!  I really do mean it.  I want to get to know my readers as well, so don't be shy!

  1. I am right there with you on doors and cupboards being open. Oh and putting away laundry...don't even get me started.....I never put it away.

  2. Crushed ice is the BEST! I had cravings for it constantly when I was pregnant. haha. I still love it now.
