A Surprise, a Guest Post, a WIN and other news!

I hope all of you Moms had a wonderful Mother’s Day! I know I sure did!!

One of the most FUN parts of my day was when a friend found out what she got for Mothers Day…..

Bridget, of Bake at 350 has THE SWEETEST hubby and son…….

They are sending her to visit ME this summer!!! WOOOOHOOOOOO!!!

Bridget’s husband had been emailing me secretly, and set everything up.

I was bursting inside keeping this secret!

Whew! It feels SO good to be able to tell everyone about it!!
I can’t WAIT to meet Bridget, and have a whole list of fun things we can do while she’s here!

Then this morning I woke up to this……….
