Get ready...set...SHOP!

Good morning!
We interrupt our regularly scheduled program.....
Before I talk about 'business', I must talk about family!
Our little town had a 50 years of Homecomings celebration yesterday. DD was Homecoming Queen in 1998. Here is a photo of she and her dad in the parade yesterday morning.

There was a 'parade' on the field last night prior to the football game, as well. Past queens, band members, football players, etc. were all on the field. Here is a photo of her - she looked up at us just as I clicked! That never happens!!!

Thanks for looking!


Back to our regulary scheduled program.............................

TWO YEARS!!!


You, who have been patiently waiting on the edge of your chairs to find out what the candy is, can finally stop holding your breath (you are probably quite blue by now!)...



I've decided that in honor of my TWO whole years in Blogland, I'm going to give away two blog candies. I've also decided that the candies will be the same!



Drumroll please..... both candies will be a $50 gift card to the on-line store of their choice! So... two lucky people will soon be shopping!!!



This blog candy starts today, and will run through Friday, October 8th. The winner will be announced on October 9th! Good luck to everyone!!!


Here is what you need to do:


1. Comment on this post.


That's all!


You do not need to sign up to follow. You do not need to post my candy on your blog and spread the word. I will, however, give an extra entry to those that would like to do so. So here's how you can get your name in the drawing...


If you commented on the first candy post here = 1 chance
If you are a follower = 1 chance
If you commented on this post = 1 chance
If you link my candy on your sidebar = 1 chance


Please do not feel obligated to do any of the above! You are all my friends, and I just want to do something nice for you! I wish I could give you ALL something!


Have a great weekend!
Patti J.
