Friday means it’s time for Julia’s Hooked on Fridays Party!

This Friday I am TOTALLY hooked on my FRIENDS!!

It’s been a CRAZY week with the Samsung contest!

I have some awesome friends & family an

amazing Tidymom readers

who have been helping me all week!!

Seriously, there are no words to express my gratitude!

This contest will end Friday Oct 2 at 11:59pm Eastern Time


If you still want to help and leave some comments on my

Where is the Heart of Your Home post ,

I will be forever thankful whether I win or not!

So many people have dedicated a lot of their time to helping me win!

*NOTE* in the 23 years we’ve been married,

we have never owned a BRAND NEW appliance!

{sigh……Samsung would be our first }


Getting goodies from friends is always fun!

I found an unexpected package in my mailbox earlier this week, only to open it and find a new Twilight t-shirt that a friend had sent me as a thank you gift for something I had sent to her! She certainly did NOT need to do that, but I LOVE my new shirt!? – on a side note, we just purchased our movie tickets for the midnight premier of New Moon on Nov 20 !!!!WOOHOO!

Sorry if it looks a little wrinkled, I’ve been sleeping in it! LOL



Earlier last month I won a giveaway on It’s So Very Cheri– I was the winner chosen as she reached her 200th follower!! Woohooo!! Cheri sent me this wonderful fall pumpkin plate and plate holder!! Can you believe I STILL don’t have any fall decor out! – I’m going to try and work on that this weekend!




And last, my bloggy buddy (whom I’ve also met IRL because we live near each other!)

Jenny, awarded me with a Best Blog Award- Thanks Jenny

But really, you need to head over to Jenny’s blog, Our Nifty Notebook
