I'm back from Tahoe!

Hello there ladies!  Well, we survived 3 days of skiing in Tahoe WITHOUT INJURIES!  Yay!  We had such a wonderful time.  If you haven't been to Lake Tahoe, you really must go.  It's simply one of the most beautiful places on earth!  We got in late last night and I have several exciting things to tell you, all happening when I was gone (I'm beginning to think I should take a blog hiatus more often!)

First, I won my very first blog award! 


Angie over at The Country Chic Cottage thinks my lil ole blog is pretty cool.  Angie, I think YOU are da bomb!  Thanks!  Go check out Angie's blog.  She's funny and she just loves a good "trash pick" too!  Now this is an award that's meant to be passed on, so I'll be doing that in a post later today!

Second, Liz over at The Brambleberry Cottage gave me and some other blogging ladies the BEST shout-out, for featuring her blog recently.  Check out my Welcome to NEWBIE Wednesday featuring The Brambleberry Cottage.  Thanks Liz!  You made my morning!

Third, I won something over the weekend!  Shona over at An Artful Life emailed me over the weekend to let me know I had won this:

Beautiful papers she stamped herself.  I'm going to use them to create some really fun art!  
Thanks Shona!

And finally, I hit 200 FOLLOWERS over the weekend!  

All I have to say is WOW!  I'm so excited that other people enjoy reading my blog.  I'm feeling all "warm and syrupy" inside!

I will be doing an awesome giveaway VERY SOON in honor of this milestone, so check back!

By the way, no "Welcome to NEWBIE" Wednesday this week, but I'll be back next week featuring new blogs you just gotta see!
 It's good to be back everyone!

It's a great day all around for you isn't it? yeah.
Happy for the followers. I was happy I just increased mine by 5 this week. Still have a LONG way to go.
Getting a blog award is so cool too. Things I can aspire to.
Thanks so much for your inspiration.
