And the winner is.....

Which, when you count down the comments to number 6, is Brenda!!! Woo Hoo!! I really wish I had one for each of you who commented. I feel so blessed to have read your comments and seen that every season is wonderful in its own way. It seems that even Summer has it's redeeming qualities!

I am doubly excited because Brenda lives in the same town as I do and we have been trying to get together but it just hasn't worked out yet. So now it HAS to work - if she wants her pressie that is...wink wink....

Today I went to visit a bloggie friend, Stacy, who lives in Boston. We have met before, you can read about it here. So the kids and I were super excited to go to her place. It was a great day. A nice easy drive with light traffic, which is amazing in Boston, and even the rain stayed away. We had a yummy lunch and just hung out. She put up with my rambunctious boys and my sweet girl, and made a delicious cherry cake dessert thingy - yum-o!

She also presented me with a gift. She had seen my cupcake appliques I made for my kitchen, and when she was vacationing in Arizona she found me another cupcake for my kitchen!
Isn't that the most thoughtful gift??? It is so perfect for me, and I will think of Stacy every time I look at it. Thank you again Stacy!!!

Tomorrow hubby is doing overtime at work, which normally would be horrible, but I am just thrilled that they are finally offering some overtime again that I will be pushing him out the door! Since rain is forecast, I think the kids and I will cuddle up in bed and watch a bunch of movies we borrowed from the library. I hope you all have a great weekend!

I won! I'm so excited...Thanks for having the drawing. I truly, honestly didn't want anyone else to win but I did do my part in spreading the word so I wouldn't feel too guilty about my "not so generous and sharing thoughts..." and I won, HAHAHAHAHA! I'm so bad! Can't wait to hang it. Oh, we'll be at the Library on Monday!
