(and you know I mean "shabby" in the best possible way:-)
Today is Feb. 6, which means I am 6 days late in joining in on Brown Eyed Belle's fun "Spread the Lovin" for Valentine's day.
The good news is...there are no rules. You just post about something(s) you love. That's it! Hey...I can do that. I do it all the time! But this time I am going to write about a few new things to give you a break from the usual suspects I ramble on about the rest of the time.
Starting with...Ronda from Stella's Mom. Haven't heard of her? Then head over to her blog right now. Go on...I give you permission to leave mine...that's how much I like her:-)
Chances are I will never meet Ronda...but I would love to!
I believe she is the kind of person who is a true friend in a room full of "friends"...know what I mean?
To me, she is a true blogger. She posts when she wants, about what she wants, regardless of how many followers or readers she has. She does this because she loves it...at least I think she does:-)
I would be soooo happy spending summers in Maine with Ronda...and little Stella of course.
(not fair when I swelter in Florida in the summer)
But only if she cooks for me. You see...this lady can cook!!!
She posts recipes from time to time although she is not technically a cooking blog...kind of like my dad who doesn't say a lot but when he speaks, you should listen.
When she posts a recipe...you should try it!
So stop by and meet Ronda. Subscribe, too...so you don't miss a recipe. I promise you will not be bombarded with 5 posts a day or giveaway blogs...just a little something when she feels like writing about it.
And her music...awesome! It's playing in the background as I type on MY blog. hahaha
Just to tease you a bit, here is my favorite "Ronda" recipe...Icebox Cake. (Click here for the recipe)
Can you say YUM????
Okay...for your laugh of the day, you have to go visit Blue Violet at A Nut in A Nutshell.
She can blog about ANYTHING and make it funny!!!
She has a bazillion followers (yes...I said bazillion...because she does:-)
and it is no wonder!
She has updates on all kinds of cool stuff happening and being given away but that's not why she is so popular.
She is just so dang funny...and despite her saying she doesn't, she always finds time to stop by and replies to comments.
She recently wrote a post titled "My Secret Shame". I had tears rolling down my face as I laughed. Maybe it's because I could relate. Well...almost...but she had me beat. (hee, hee.) She is one of a kind, you'll see for yourself. Maybe I loved this post because I had my own "secret shame"...MJ, Donny O. and David Cassidy. Magnum P.I, too...how could I forget??? But hers take the cake! So start your day off with a laugh and read this post now...that's an order:-)
Okay, enough rambling...now for some quickies.
Are these earring the cutest thing, or what?
I don't care what anyone says, I would wear these. I might be alone because my family would not be with me when I did...but I'd still wear them! Love Barbie...
Jordie got a guitar for Christmas. The other day, I came across this one on the internet. I don't remember where but the dad it belongs to lets his kids doodle on it. How cool is this??? I suppose a guitar aficionado would be appalled but I say go for it! I want Jordie to write and paint on hers...how awesome would that look in her room...and the little stories it would tell forever. I'm probably the only mom who buys her daughter a guitar and tells her to paint on it, I know. But go ahead and do it, Jordie!!!:-)
Well, Miss Molly, the talented lady who makes these, saw my blog post and is offering my blog readers 15% off if you visit her etsy shop and mention you saw them on my blog.
How sweet is that! Thank you Miss Molly.
Head over to Good Golly, Miss Molly's shop to get your cute little hats.
She knows how to "spread the lovin".
If a picture is worth a thousand words...than this waiter/waitress probably did not get a tip:-)
