Back in February I was click-click-clicking away at the computer when Youngest Son popped his head around the corner and crowed:
"Guess what today is!!!???"
My heart sank. Did we miss a doctor's appointment . . . a friend's birthday party . . . a report due date. I braced myself.
"It's your two-year blogging anniversary!!!"
Oh my . . . so it was!! But it has taken me 3 months to finally getting around to having the celebration.
And that is because winter basketball season was ending, spring soccer season was starting, and fall volleyball was scheduling.
And I was whirling.
But last night we put a pretty bow on the sports year with a big Athletic Banquet and said goodbye to sports season '10/'11. ::sigh::
So, between making it through this year's school sports and having a bloggy anniversary, the time is naturally quite right for a giveaway. And this time I'm making it a Favorite Blogs Giveaway with 3 items from 3 enjoyable blogs.
First up is Pioneer Woman. Have you read her new book? If not, here's your chance:
Pioneer Woman makes me smile and sometimes scratch my head and say, "Huh??" But she's always real and delightfully imperfect
Secondly, I'm giving away 3 little adorable notebooks from Dottie Angel's quirky blog:
They're about 4" x 6" with ruled paper inside. Just fun for popping in your purse or keeping lists on the kitchen counter or whatever it is you just must jot down.
And then for those of you who have never had the delight of hand-knitted dishcloths and must try them and for those of you who already love them and need more, I have 2 of the famous waffle-knit cloths from Deb at Homespun Living.
Just leave a comment and tell me what keeps drawing you back to blogging (whether reading or writing) and you'll be entered to win.
Here's to a few months with only minimal sports responsibilities and another new year of chatting away with you!
