The Goodies!

As I announced last week, I am hosting a Giveaway to celebrate my 200th post. The giveaway will close tonight at midnight, so be sure to leave a comment to enter!
Here is a pic of the things I have gathered for the prize:
*Venus razor
*Softlips chapstick
*Thermacare wrap
*Glide Floss
*A nice new clicky pen
*Two Gooseberry Patch cookbooks
*A pretty pad of writing paper
*Five little heart shaped post-it pads
*A country basket with a bird house themed lid

The winner will be posted on Wednesday. That will allow me to check again on Tuesday for final entries & have Mike help me draw the winner on Tuesday evening. BTW, he's so into the bloggy world that he thought I was crazy when I said I was hosting a giveaway. Obviously he understands football better than blogging!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend & that Monday has not been too painful so far. Our weekend was super busy & I enjoyed a wonderful time at the Ladies' Retreat. One too-stressful-let's-not-ever-let-that-happen-again moment at the retreat was when my g-ma took a spill & hit her head on the concrete floor. Camp can be a dangerous place for Grands (especially when they have a tendency to be unsteady on their feet!). But it was a profitable time for sure. We learned a lot about not letting our emotions control us, how to comfort others in times of trial or pain, & how to love our husbands. It was fun to sit in a session like the last one & know that the teaching is now practical to my life b/c now I have a husband! :-)

Anyway, today it's back to the grind. We both overslept this morning & had to hit the ground running! I kinda hate mornings like that, but the Lord has been good to bless me with a very un-hectic work day so far at the first job. Here's hoping & praying that job #2 is this smooth & relaxed!

Super duper give-away! And I had to laugh at your husband's response. :-)

How scary that must have been with your grandma! Glad it was a profitable weekend.

Glad to hear your g-ma is ok! Yikes!

Sounds like a wonderful and profitable weekend! Hope the rest of your day flies by!

glad to hear that you had a great time at the retreat and that your grandmother is okay.:) Great giveaway! I'm thinking about doing my first one to celebrate a year in the blog-world. It will be in November, hopefully after we've settled into our new place for a bit. Have a great week.
