This makes me feel blessed…

I’ve had messes to clean up, but never like this!

THE HORROR of it! Can you even begin to imagine walking in on this!!!!!!

(PS: this was on someone elses blog. Don’t know who these kids are, but if they ever come to my house, they have to play outside!)

My guy

I’ve been trying to get a photo of Bug on this blog for a week now… when I get it up loaded he looks blue for some reason… I’m trying to figure this whole digtal camera / online stuff compression / resolution out…

Settling In

I believe we are finally settled in to our new place. We were doing some upscale camping for several weeks and it is a joy to finally have our things again! I can cook dinner in something other than an aluminum pie plate (I set off the smoke alarm every time I cooked chicken ’cause it had a slice in it that dripped the chicken grease onto the heat element… I’m sure everyone around us thinks that I am an awful cook!)

We still have boxes around the place, but most of them are now pushed into corners. Not my choice of decor, but it suffices for now.

I’m not sure what I plan on doing with this blog… I just figured I would give one a try since everyone else seems to have one. The cool thing is that I can link things and post pictures and waste time that I don’t have! It’s so much easier than the website I’ve been trying to keep updated for for the last 5 years.

What the?! – Information

Join me here on my blog every Tuesday for a chance to win some great prizes.

Here’s how it will all work:

Every Tuesday, I will post a close up of a photo.

In the comments, make your guess of what it is (be sure that you have a way for me to contact your through email)

Make as many guesses as you like.

Since I don’t sit at my computer non-stop, I won’t always be able to stop the contest as soon as someone guesses correctly. Besides, I love reading your guesses, so the more the merrier.

The first person with the correct answer will have their name put into a drawing for the prize.
There will be one prize winner per month. That winner will be randomly chosen from the prior weeks’ winners. (I will draw a name once a month from that months winners.)

I would love for this to be promoted, so feel free to grab the button below.

What will I win?

Currently, I am offering a free blog header for the winner. I’ve been getting some nice responses on my headers since starting my blog. (Click here for samples of my work)

Remember though, I’m not a pro. I don’t know anything about programming. But I can create a nice header for you to place on your blog. (If you don’t want a blog header, please leave a comment saying hello.)

I am considering other prize options such as:
a .pdf version of a Mommy Card for you to be able to print off on your own at home. Or maybe someone else would like to offer something as a prize at different times. Let me know if you are interested in offering something. (You will be responsible for getting it to the winner)

*Disclaimer: because I am offering this for free and for fun, obviously it will not be a blog header that requires exuberant amounts of time from me. This is a free header. It will not be ugly. I will work with you to create something fun for your blog. But I won’t be spending hours on revisions for you. You tell me what you want. And I will do my best to create it. If you don’t like what I create, then throw it in your recycle bin. This is meant to be fun and not something that makes my kids resent me.
