Gooseberry Patch is in the house! WOOT! WOOT! Oh…and I am in theirs :) Plus a Giveaway!

I am the Featured Friday blogger!!


Is that so cool or what?  Seriously, I got a little spazzy when Jen contacted me and asked me if I would be interested?  My response: “Did you seriously just ask me that?!”  And yes, she was serious.  So get yourselves over there and read every word!  While you are there look around…GREAT STUFF I TELL YOU! And then zip back over here and enter to win Gooseberry Patch Farmer’s Market Favorites and my OOAK NotQuiteJuneCleaver Farmers’ Market Apron!


How to enter? Leave me a comment telling me how much you want to win!  And if you blog about this, tweet about this or facebook this, let me know you have done so and you get an extra entry for each place you talk about it!  I will draw the winner Monday May 3rd – your entry must be in by noon CST.  Check Tuesday morning, May 4, for the announcement.


An Award!


A You Make Me Smile Award from  Ruthann over at Warm Pie, Happy Home

She will probably want to take it back after today’s post!  Sorry to let you down Ruthann…caught me on a rough day!  BUT I will play along.  I am working on my post where I list 6 random habits/facts about myself and then tag 6 women with blogs who make me smile! Thank you Ruthann and I will cheer up, I promise!


7 Random Things About Me & A Blog Award

One of my blogging friends, Sher tagged me for this “game” – Thank you Sher! I am so horrible about these things…I usually end up not doing the tags because I cant think of anything to write at the time and then I forget. What does it say about me that if there is an award involved,  I find a way!! I promise you there is nothing that interesting! But I will try!

So, here I go. This is how I understand it works ~ the RULES:

Link to the person that tagged you, I did, Sher.
Post the rules on your blog. (doing this now)
Share 7 random and/or weird facts (read: more boring than anything!) about yourself on your blog. (see below)
Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs. (to follow)
Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog. (will do)

7 random and/or weird facts about me

1. I am pretty sure I could get an Adult ADD diagnosis from 8 out of 10 doctors.

2. I don’t have a college degree…and don’t care. Went a couple of different times…wasnt for me.

3. I have handled my chicks leaving the nest WAY better than I thought I would.

4. I am learning to speak/read French…big task for me as I never took a foreign language in school and I am OLD.

5. I LOVE British TV…mini series, movies, comedies, mysteries.

6. My favorite flower is Sunflowers.

7. I can’t carry a tune in a bucket. Not kidding.

Now to pass this along: (I hate picking the list…I feel like I am slighting some!  And there are so many lovely blogs out there that I read!)
