Monday Giveaway!!

Lloyd and Katherine

Hello to all of my friends out in blogland!! At least I hope that I am still your friend since I have had a time catching up with all this reading. I spent two hours last night trying to catch up and did not make it through everyone that I wanted to read!! WOW!!

As I said yesterday...I am going to be doing some giving away!! I had my 3rd Blog anniversary on the 22nd of July and well with so much going on ...I missed it!! But I thought this is MY BLOG so I can go ahead and do it anyway!!

I have decided to give away two cute little Cherished Teddies. I have a small collection of them and am going to have to be either giving them away or selling them soon. Hubby and I are thinking seriously about selling out in a year or two and moving into our motor home..Course that means this "Nesty woman" is going to have to give up quite a few things!! (cute things and fun girly things) Going to be hard so I am really praying that God will give me peace about this!!

Here is the first of my "probably" many give aways. I would like to see my friends have the things that I love. IF you are interested please leave your name on my blog!! I will be drawing from those that leave comments...I am going to draw this Friday morning!! So go for it if you would like these two cuties..Many more to follow!! Smile


Today I have the grands!! We have been everywhere it seems..Not really!! I went to Curves and ached all the way through the whole thing!! You see from going to the Wave place Saturday I was hurting all over the place!! The machines did not make things any better but thought it might be good to work out anyway!! Then off to the grands; then off to lunch; then off to the pharmacy; then off to the grocery store; then off to Tootsie's; then tried to go to the pool but got rained out!! So now we are at home seeing what happens when you light a candle and pour the wax on waxed paper!! WHEW!! Fun..huh!!

Hope that you all are having a great day!! Rain all week for us and a possibility of that silly storm Flo going over us!! Fun...looking forward to that with these big tall pine trees all around our home!! They fall easy you know!! Last one hit our house!! Hm!! May be moving sooner than we thought..Smile!! Just kidding!!

Flip flop:
Thought for the day: "Money is an excellent servant, but a horrible master!!"

Hi Sandy,
It's been a busy and hectic summer for so many of us!
Living in your motorhome will be a huge change, won't it! I would find it so difficult to part with so many of my keepsakes, etc!
Enjoy your time with the grands. We have one all this week too.

Enjoy having those grandkids!!! I'm sure someone would love those teddy bears dear Sandy...but there is no need putting my name in the drawing...I have a lot of stuff like this already and I just KNOW someone out there in blogland needs them...even my grandkids are too big and 'boyish' ya, just don't put my name in.

Besides, I just popped by to welcome you back to blogging and home sweet home. I know you have a lot of catching up to do. How was the birthday celebration? Good I hope!!!

I'm glad you're back home, safe and sound.

I guess I should have done some "give aways" -- I've just been TOSSING my stuff! I'm just so tired of clutter I could screeeeeeeam! I think your little bears are adorable - but please don't put me in the drawing! I just want to come and comment cuz I love YOU! I wish we would get some of that rain you've been having! It comes up this way and it goes allllll around us... but we don't get any of it! Every night we are under STORM ALERT... and then it either goes north or goes south... *sigh* I'm going to have to remember dripping candles on wax paper. WHAT did they discover?

Denise said...

Hello my sweet friend. I love those cherished teddies(of course) Take care, love you.

Peggy said...

glad you are home. Getting ready for the storm here too. Hope its just rain.

Hi Sandy, It was hard for me at Curves this morning too.. some days I am just not in the mood....Your bears are cute, but I have never been a lover of bears..and I need to get rid of clutter too.Someone out there would love to get them.I hope you can soak in a hot tub and relax your muscles from hurting..

Take care ...hugs, Barb

my daughter would love to have the cherished teddies. She already has most of my collection of cherished teddies including one that not only "bears" :) her name but the correct spelling of it too!

LadyBugCrossing said...

#1 Collects bears. He has a few Cherished Teddies. He does not have either one of those...
Please count us in!

Lazy Daisy said...

Hey babe, sounds like a rushed, and sore day for you. (Too much running around lady!) Hope you start to feel better. Miss you.

Puss-in-Boots said...

Sandy! You've been running around like the proverbial headless chook (chicken). I hope you don't get that storm...having a tree demolish your house is not the way to go.

Take care of yourself and don't run yourself ragged.

Linda said...

When I opened your page I almost fell over. The bears name's "Lloyd and Katherine". Lloyd was my brother and Katherine was his wife!

I know what you mean about clutter. I've been trying to clear out, but it seems as soon as I toss something, something else appears.

I've been trying to catch with with everyone too from being gone. I wasn't gone nearly as long as you, but it still takes time to visit everyone.

Hope you don't get too much rain. I know you need some.

Kathleen Marie said...

Wow, moving into a motor home... We see them all the time around here but I have never seriously thought of moving into one permanantly - kind of scary and exciting at the same time.

As for your drawing... I am in... Cute bears to be sure...

Hugs ♥

Hi Sandy, wow... you are the winner.. go to Pea's corner and see... friend....your lucky number was 33...

PEA said...

Hello dear Sandy:-)

Ooooh what a delightful giveaway you're having, I've always found the Cherished Teddies so adorable! Please add my name to your draw:-)

I'm so glad you made it back home safe and sound. Isn't it terrible how much time it takes to visit everyone's blogs once you've been away for a while? lol This week I've hardly had time for the computer except to make my posts!! xoxo

((hugs)) and blessings on ya!

Nancy said...

Enjoy the grands, enjoy the needed rain and pray that Flo fizzles out! They aren't predicting that Flo will pass over western NC, so no rain for us.

Sign me up for the give away and happy blog anniversary.

Heart of Rachel said...

Glad you're back. Belated Happy Blog Anniversary! They are a cute bear couple.

Enjoy your time with your grandkids. Take care!

Betty said...

Count me in for the drawing, Sandy, and thank you for offering these cuties.

I hope you all don't get much damage or rain from Fay.
