My Winnings!

Janene over at Primitive Lifestyle had a drawing for her 50th post and I won. My winnings came and I just love them! Had to show everyone a pic! Thanks Janene and congrats on your 50th post!

I just love Janene! She is one of those people that just makes you feel right at home. She is so easy to talk to and we have come to realize that we have quite a few things in common. She has such a true caring spirit.

This is what I mean.....
The day she sent me the email about me being the name that Molly pulled out of the santa hat, My husband had just come in the door from work and told me that Honda was cutting back to a 3 day work week. When you are used to a 7 day pay check....well you just know it is gonna hurt. I replied to her email with pure excitement! It was just a bit of good news I could use at that very moment to lift my spirits! I'm taking it as a sign that things are gonna get better. So anyway, the point being, Janene is such a good person that she took it upon herself to throw in this little extra something........Yes, a gift card for The Olive Garden! Oh I love the Olive Garden! It is one of those things that Janene and I have in common, our choices in restaurants.

So, I hope everyone will go on over and visit Janene and make her a friend just like I did. You won't be sorry. She is a wonderful person to get to know. She has six, count them, 6 girls! I have 2 girls and sometimes thay are like 6, so I don't know how Janene does it! I guess that just goes to show you what a good person she is! Oh and her husband is a fireman....gotta love a man in uniform!

Well, that's it for today. The girls are on another 2 hour delay and Lauren's class is having a pancake breakfast. So, I got 45 sausages waiting on me in the kitchen to be cooked up! I hope everyone is enjoying the hustle bustle of the season, but I also hope you are taking a moment to just look around at your loved ones and realize "It's a Wonderful Life!" Until next time everyone....big hugs! ~Beth~

It's always nice to get goodies in the mail!!

I feel your pain as far as your husbands job goes. My husband works in the auto industry as well. Not the business to be in these days.

Merry Christmas!!
