HOT & HUMID...and my Blog Birthday...

It's my blog birthday...I'm 1 years old....and to celebrate this milestone......
this sweet little baby shoe pincushion and hankie and a couple other items will be someones soon...just leave a comment if you would like to win them. Remember....this isn't to be shared with others...it's for my regular reader's and gals who leave comments. Thank you! These SWEET cupcake ATC and Tag are from the swap...aren't they great and don't they make you hungry for a cupcake!! THANK YOU GIRLS....they are are Wonderful and I appreciate all your creativeness!!!

This is what you do when it's too stinking HOT & HUMID in MN....of course you have to SHARE the sprinkler with others....even the 4 legged ones....




JB LOVES the WATER....we can't water the yard with him outside...he goes crazy for the water and DIGS a hole where the water puddles....and then he becomes a Mud Puppy....even Old Mack gets into cooling off .....


I wish I had a video camera...watching JB DANCE in the water is just too funny...he'd do it all day if the sprinkler was on...
It's been a fun year of blogging. I have made some very dear friends...learned that spray painting is FUN and a quick fix, that gals I've never met will pray for me and my family and that anything can be used as a "cloche"...that MOST of you have so much talent that you share and that giveaways and swaps are awesome and that blogging is the BEST thing! My hubby calls me the "blogging Queen"...and sometimes he thinks I spend too much time blogging... hey, I don't watch TV much any more!!! Isn't that something?! SO, Thank You for all your comments, prayers and love through this modern thing called blogging....I guess face book is next...Ha ha...
I'm sticking to blogging!!!
Warmly,
Deb :)

Good morning, Blogging Queen! That is not a bad thing to be called. The rewards of blogging are many and I certainly am glad you decided to start one. I can't imagine my life without you in it. Your babies look so cute playing in the sprinkler. Are you kidding? I'm not telling anyone about your give away because I want to win! Have a nice day! Twyla

I don't watch TV much, anymore, either. Unless you count listening to what my hubby is watching! If so, then I "watch" a lot of the history channel!

Happy Bloggy Birthday, here's to many more!

Hi Deb. What a sweet picture of your girl with the puppy!

I'm happy that blogging has been good for you.

I just have too much to do around my home to post these days. Thanks for your sweet visit today! It was very special.

Happy summer,

Gosh Deb, it seems like just yesterday that you folks in MN thought the ice would never go away and now you're hotter than we are! Did you play in the sprinkler? ☺

Well, I just came from Pearls and saw the cuppies over there and now I *really* want some frosting!!!

Hey, I'm a facebooker too so I never watch TV!

Count me in on your cute give away!

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

It is hot here also. I love the give-away!! Have a great day..m.

Deb, That is so awesome your blog is one year old. Can you believe it? I have only had my blog for 3 months and can you believe I don't watch tv anymore either..lol
I have had a movie paused for over and hour even as we speak. I LOVE the pictures of your dog dancing in the water and then all of them in the bed together. Congrat's on the one year mark. Please stop my blog in the next weekor so, for some blog fun too. www.lilbitoldlilbitnew. Thanks for the share. Kath'

Kate Spike and Her KatS said...

I love visiting your blog--everything is so pretty and girly. Those cuppy cake cards are darling and I feel the urge to "bake up" some of my own! Congratulations on your anniversary--the blogging world wouldn't be the same without a Garage Sale Gal fix now and again!

Victoria Lynn said...

Congratulations! I loved the pictures of your doggies, how funny! What would we do without our pets? Hope you are enjoying your summer! Hugs, Victoria Lynn

Brenda said...

Yeah, me too. Sticking to blogging. Not much for Facebook type things. Congratulations! I don't watch tv much anymore either. Too busy catching up with blogs! I don't blame you. I find it hard to believe people sign up for drawings for blogs they've never read! Strange!

Janet, said...

congratulations on one year of blogging! We didn't go to the pool, so my kids used to run through the sprinklers in the summer when it was hot. They loved it.

What a great post, Deb! I love blogging too, but have gotten into Facebook and now Twitter (which is the absolute coolest thing going!!) I still watch tv (while I blog), but blogging is definitely high up on my list of one of the best things that happened to me last year. Happy Blogaversary!!
