Check This Out!

Announcing a new blog that you all need to check out! dcrmom, my lovely niece and Blogging Mentor has just launched a new exciting site that I feel is going to be a big hit. She and her cohort June will be reviewing beauty products for the modern woman. They plan on reviewing three products per week and will give an honest opinion whether they think the product is something you just can't live without or if it's a dud. So mosey on over and take a look at

Tina over at Palm Tree Fanatic tagged me for this meme last week so here goes!

Thanks to Pea over at Pea's Corner for refreshing my memory on The Blessings Award! She was kind enough to give it to me and I wanted to be sure to say a big thank you to her for it. Pea is one of those people that everyone loves the minute they meet her. She has been so kind to me from the earliest days of my blogging endeavors and we have become such good friends. Thank you Pea for the award! You certainly have been a blessing to me and I value our friendship so much!

Now to keep the blessings going I need to pass it onto someone else. I truly am blessed by all of you that I blog with but I think my friend
Needled Mom would certainly enjoy this special award. As I stated back a few posts ago we met at the convention that we go to each year and have become such good friends. She has done so many things for me even making a video of a quilting technique called Paper Piecing for me the first week we met and sent it all the way from California to Maine for me! Thanks NM! Now you have to pass it along to someone else and keep those blessing going!

Somehow I zipped right by my 200th post and this is my 243! I think when I get to 250 I will have a Give Away. Actually I think I will have two things to give away, one for the horse crowd and one for all the others. I don't know yet what it will be but will let you know so keep watch for the details! I just can't believe I have come up with enough foolishness to fill 243 posts! Thank you to those of you that faithfully come by and leave comments. And to those of you that just come by, I know who you are!!!!

Does anyone know if we ever are going to get Spell Check back again??? I am seriously thinking of changing to something else so that I will have it. I MISS MY SPELL CHECK!!!

Horse people, check out my horse quirks two posts back.

Loved reading the answers to the meme!

Conversation with hubby and the cats.....I talk to my dog all the time!

Marcy Bowden said...

Yay! You were able to fix this post to be your most recent! I'm so glad.

Needled Mom said...

I really chuckled as I read your meme. 30 inch there such a thing?

Thank you so much for the award. Now I will need to figure this out to pass it on. You DO challenge me. Thank goodness someone does with this blogging.

It will be interesting to read the reviews that will be written. Most of us probably have a full drawer of unused products.

I, too, still have no spellcheck. I have been copying it to my w*ord and check it there. It's an extra step but it helps.

Dawn said...

I never had any luck with spell check when they had it - I just have to reread everything several times and go back in and make changes!

It is amazing how much stuff we have to say, isn't it??

PEA said...

I hope you appreciate the fact that I crawled out of my sick bed just to come and visit you! hehe By the way, I hope you got the license plate number of that mac truck that ran over me??? UGH! I've spent the last two days in bed but this evening I'm feeling a bit better so I thought I'd come visit a few friends. I've missed you all soooo much!!

You are more than welcome on the award, my friend. Don't you just love the friendships we have built through this wonderful world of blogging?!! Congratulations on your almost 250th post!! I haven't even checked how many posts I've done...probably too many! lol

Loved reading your answers to the meme...I've forgotten what a 30" waist looks like! lol

Keep warm and keep those posts coming:-) Love ya! xoxox

the moose buyer said...

Love the meme answers but aren't horses pets too?? I need spell check too. Sometimes I really screw up a word.

KC said...

Just got all caught up on your blog.. sorry that I fell so far behind.
I totally agree with you on the spell check.. I live by that.. for the mean time I have been typing my post out in my email using there spell check and then copying and pasting it.. what a pain.

T looked so pretty at her daddy/daughter dance Her hair Oh my goodness her hair.. just beautiful.. DIL did a wonderful job.

Susie said...

Cute meme :)
I talk to my hubby and cat a lot too. Vincent is pretty good about answering so I don't feel like I'm talking to myself. Sorry I've been so bad about visiting. I do think of you often and truly appreciate each of your comments and prayers.

Rising Rainbow said...

I hope the spell check is coming soon but my guess really is NOT! Takes a while for them to figure out those fixes.

That looked like a fun meme by the way. It's nice to see some different things floating around out there than that 5 or 7 things. Gee I am sick of that. LOL

Mississippi Songbird said...

Thanks for the links.. I'll check them out. Happy Valentines week!

BarnGoddess said...

I badly want my house organized too! I liked reading your answers to this MeMe.

spellcheck? eh, I never, ever use it at WP...can you tell?

Oh my... Dunkin Donuts Milky Way Hot Chocoloate sounds delicious!!! I've gotta try that sometime!

Yes, I talk to my cats too... & they talk back... glad to know I'm not the only one! lol

Chic-Critique sounds like a cool site... I'll have to check that out & see if they've covered the mineral foundation products yet- I've been thinking of getting some, but I don't want to spend the $$ if it doesn't make my skin look as flawless as the girls on the commercials! haha :)
