After a very slow start and some time off, I found Big Mama's blog, got hooked, and became simply addicted to reading blogs. Hey, I thought, she's funny...I'm a little funny, maybe I could start up again.
I love, love, love reading what each of you are up to in your daily lives, whether it's crafty things you are creating, the recipes you are testing, or the funny or inspirational stories you have to share...I love all of it! I might not have 1400+ Followers like The Nester, but I sure am enjoying writing for those of you who do stop by...and most of all, I am loving writing for the "exercise" it offers me! Thank you for the kind, encouraging comments you leave for me. If you decide to stay, or "follow," I'll do my best to keep you smiling!
To thank you for stopping by, I'm hosting my very first GiVeAwAY!
1. If you leave me a comment on this post, between now and Monday, April 13th, at noon (EST), I will enter you in the drawing!

4. Continental US residents only, please (I love you all, but times is tough, people...I can't afford shipping to Uzbekistan)
5. I will announce the winner of the giveway on Tuesday!
What's the prize? Oh, yeah...it might be nice if I got around to mentioning it, huh?
This book rocks my world, ya'll! There are several in this series. I haven't checked out the kids' version yet, and this one is not the book that exposes all the horrid caloric nightmares in our favorite restaurants (which no one can afford to eat at right now, anyways). I decided on the Supermarket Survival version because I found it fascinating to thumb through and see items that I thought were relatively safe listed in the "Not That!" category. T was deeply grieved to learn that his favorite Life cereal did not make the "Eat This" list. Since I haven't read the kids' one yet, I couldn't recommend it, and this one seemed like it would be helpful to just about anyone who has ever been to a grocery. I know I have a few (maybe one or two?) male readers, so this one doesn't leave you out, fellas!
Eat This, Not That! could be a great helper to you as you shop for afforable and healthy meal choices for your family. I hope to hear from lots of you (lurkers too!). I can't wait to announce the winner!
If you're new to my blog, here are a few of my favorite posts.
