It's A Pink Saturday Give Away!

Hey Y'all How are ya today?
It is cold,grey and raining here in Virginia today and I love it. If you don't know I love grey days, they are calming to me and I am thankful for days like this.
Please join me in visiting other Pink Saturday pals over at Beverly's
She is a great hostess and adored by all of us.

OK as a result of it POURING DOWN RAIN at 7:30 this morning (when I was supposed to be walking out the door to go home) I wandered around the store and thought, I have been BLESSED beyond measure, and I am so thankful for all I have been given. I want to do something nice for my blog friends, so I have put together a small giveaway for you.
So I was thinking as I was walking around, waiting for the rain to take a break;  what kind of giveaway would I like to receive?
With the weather so chilly and my hands so dry I thought; one that would pamper me, this is what I came up with.
The first item I picked up are these wonderful aloe infused socks.
 Oh my goodness they are so cozy and warm,
I hope you like them as much as I do!
Don't you love the Candy Corn stripes?
I had to pick them :)

  Then I went over and got some of myfavorite hand lotion,
a pretty pink nail  polish and a pink pumice for you.
                          Soft hands, soft feet and pretty nails.
The Pink part of Pink Saturday :)

Then I thought, what else would pamper you a bit, how about some yummy sweets, just enough for one and a lovely cinnamon candle.

The perfect way to take a few minutes all for you to make yourself feel good!
Well that was my goal anyway :)

So would you like to win?
Here is how
1.Please be a follower ( I will follow you back)
2.Please leave a comment telling me how you found my blog.
3.For an extra chance tell me which of my blog posts has been your favorite this year.
Just be sure to leave the comment here on today's post
4.Make sure I have a way to contact you.
Winner will be picked next Saturday.

Vacation Day 5 and PINK SATURDAY!

Hey Y'all, how are ya today?
I am rested and relaxed!
 We had a nice supper last night with my sister Laura and her husband Patrick,
we got home around midnight and crashed. We had a good time with them.
 This morning we have been as LAZY as we can be and we are both content! Oh I would have LOVED to have gone somewhere, anywhere, but there is a lot to be said for just relaxing and being calm. I do feel rejuvenated.
                                Covered Dish
                                 love these
OK for today's Pink Saturday post at Beverly's Blog I am featuring my mini pink depression glass by Mosser Glass. This is their set #13 The Covered Dish and Sherbets.
It's the last set I own, there are many, many more available, but alas this is the end of my little collection. I think this one is my favorite.
Have a great day and please pop on over to Beverly and visit. You will LOVE it there :)

Vacation Day 4

PHEW today has been a busy day!
I started my day with a girlfriend of mine at breakfast, we ate and talked  for hours! It was so nice. We have only seen each other a couple of times in the last 20 years, but we just pick up where we leave off and it is never strained.
Love her!
Then I went to lunch with my sister Beth.
Went to Michael's and my local crafting store.
Tonight we are going to my sister Laura's house to have dinner with them.
Lot's of running but a good day.
Oh how I love Vacation!

Vacation Day 2

AHHHH I am feeling better after a much needed day of doing NOTHING.
It was so nice to sleep when I wanted, eat when I wanted and veg all day.
Today I have to take the hubs to get an X-Ray of his shoulder and do a little shopping.
He drives me nuts, but I love him.
I hope y'all are having a great day.

Vacation Day 1 AND 100th post!

Hey Y'all!
I am so happy to have 6 days in a row to enjoy life!

Today is day 1 of my vacation and today I am doing NOTHING.
I might cook supper and write a couple of letters, but that will be it! :)
No cleaning, no running all over, no laundry. Just me and my big ole booty in my chair watching trash on T.V.
Ahhhh contentment.
Oh I need to be doing a bunch but I am not gonna do it today.
I need this day.

Shelby, Layden and Colby. These Little's are my heart. They bring me such joy and I love them all SO MUCH!

Next week I am taking the last of my vacation days for this year and I would love some input on how you spend your vacation time.
We are  not going on a trip anywhere :(  so we are staying home and I have one project in mind already, one sister and her hubby are coming over for dinner one night and I am going to dinner and a movie with another sister, that leaves 3 full days .
Oh how I would love to go to the beach or to Vegas or ANYWHERE! 
Alas that is not in the budget.
So what is your favorite way to spend a vacation day?

Dear God

You must feel I am strong, but I am not, I have reached my limit. I can not do this without you.It's all too much, I can't take on any more, I lay it all at the foot of your throne.
You are in control.
You are my God, My  King
I seek Your will and Yours alone.
I love You Lord.

Survivors For Pink Saturday

This week I want to share with you two amazing women I have the honor and privilege of knowing and loving.
They are both survivors of Breast Cancer

First up is Joy, we have known each other for years and years!
We went to Jr. High and High School together.
We also have the same birthday :)
She is a teacher and comedian.
She is a survivor and I love her to bits.
Next is some one who I have known my entire life, she is my cousin Ruth Ann.
She is one of the nicest, most kind women in my life. She is a teacher and a wonderful seamstress and loves Jimmy Buffet as much as I do (probably she is a new Nana too! My cousin Jeremy (her son ) and his wife Sarah just had twins!
Ruth Ann finished her radiation and chemo earlier this year.
She is there when ever I need her and I love her so much, more than she will ever know.
She is a survivor.
I pray that they will both be cancer free for the rest of their lives and that they live long and happy.
They are both Blessings to me.
