Was Tagged, Then Got Something Great In The Mail

About a month ago, I won a few giveaways.

Trust me, I deserved it. I worked it. Did comments. Facebooked it. Followed. Shouted out to the rooftops. Yeah, you know the drill.

Its fun. You should try it.

Such a rush when you finally win one. It was probably beginners luck, cause I haven't won any since then, but it was enough for awhile.

What did I win, you ask?

This, from a super blogger, Shauna, from Trying to Stay Calm. She is freakin amazing, as she gives away tons of stuff----and how she manages it all is an inspiration. Go check it out.

What is with my "claw" hand? And this was before the haircut.

So, now I have to find some time to read it and use the ideas.

I'll get back to you on that.

This, from another great site, The Cleaning Coach, Leslie does it right with lots of GREEN CLEANERS----and I got some----so exciting!

And this is after my hair cut this past weekend.

Ok, readers......are we noticing a trend here? Did someone tell on me, and my bad housekeeping ways?

I am humbled. And I am asking forgiveness.

Again, more on that later.

As for the tagging. I was tagged on the 8 Things meme. the bee-you-tee-full Rachel over at What Is She Thinking? She is a talented, fun blogger who likes to read! (A gal after my own heart), so I am just now getting around to it......sorry, Rachel.

1. Sleeping in after Aydan gets out of school.
2. Every time I get new books in the mail----I LOVE to get things in the mail, so I mail order them from Amazon.
3. Doing gigs out of town this summer and being able to SLEEP OVER and not drive home until 5:00 in the morning!
4. Having my G-babies come to visit for over two weeks this summer! YAY!
5. "So You Think You Can Dance"
6. Getting on that great un-diet that my sister is hooking me up with! Woot!
7. Going to my family reunion and laughing with my brothers and sisters.
8. Directing a One Act Play in the fall.

3. Wrote up announcements about my first ever Improv workshop at The Cannon Theatre in July!
4. Taught four voice students.
5. Worked on some costumes for Pirates of Penzance.
6. Walked the dogs for an hour.
7. Make La-Ziti for dinner.
8. Had a good chat with three of my children on the phone.

1. Go to London----or Italy----or France!
2. Run without my feet hurting----so I walk.
3. Go back and model again---but only if I lose 15 lbs.
4. Lose 15 lbs.
5. Win the Publishers Clearing House!
6. Buy that Historic house.....
7. Have all my kids living close to me.

I saw Mrs. Meyers on the CBS Early Show earlier this year and she had some good tips- like foil in sneakers to absorb odor...that should be a good book. Congrats on your prizes! And, I know what you mean about sleeping in-- today is the last day of school - woo-hoo!! Tomorrow I have penciled in to get up at 10:00 :D

I hope your summer camps fill up to the point that you have to have a wait list!!

I thought I was the only person on earth who liked House Hunters International! I'm so glad to know I'm not alone. (don't you love the episodes in Italy???)

Kate Coveny Hood said...

You look great! I could use some cleaning product giveaways... My housekeeping skills leave much to be desired. Or - my skills are fine, just rather out of practice.

dapper kid said...

Loving the hair :) Congratulations on winning!! Everyone keeps telling me how amazing Pushing Daisies is, I really should check it out. And I absolutely love House Hunters!! Soo many beautiful locations, and some of the houses are just breathtaking. Haha and gotta love Kath & Kim!

I love your haircut! And congrats on the giveaways....
And I would love to know about that un-diet!

These tags are great because you get to know so much about someone....and I wish I were close enough to be able to go to one of your gigs.

julie said...

Way to win TWO giveaways! I tried unsuccessfully these past few weeks to win something.

So sad about Pushing Daisies being canceled.

Lani said...

Stopping by from SITS.. congrats on the giveaways:) If you need any more cleaning products, we are giving some away on one of my blogs too right now!
