I think It Is Give Away time!

 But I will get to that in just a minute!!  

Yesterday was a really great day, despite sleeping in until 7!  I got everything that I needed to accomplished finished.  I even cleaned the dining room carpets, had a great chat with an old friend, and my brother in law came to visit!  

When Flower was little, she had a really hard time saying "Brett" still to this day, we lovingly refer to him as "Uncle But".  As you can see, the men in Barb Wire Man's family are small men.....ok, maybe not so much.  They are some big dudes, I tell ya, but its good to have boys like this on your side!  They are also genuinely good men; the kind of men women everywhere dream about.  Unfortunately for single ladies everywhere, we Texas girls know a good man when we see one, and my sister-in-law and I snagged them both up pretty fast!  Uncle But has to leave to go see my in-laws this afternoon, but will be back later in the week.

Barb Wire Man is on the left, and Uncle But is on the right.  

I'm helping Uncle But cuff his shirt before his wedding.


I do believe it rained a little either this morning or late last night!  It tempted us all evening yesterday, but nothing ever happened.  So it was sure nice to walk outside and see a wet ground, and smell the beautiful smell of rain!  Thank you God!

I did add another new item to 13 Plum this morning.  Your dog would love it!  I was also featured in another Etsy Treasury, which always makes my day.  You can see it here!

And now, for the giveaway!  

Yesterday, I hit 101 followers!  I am so excited!  Thank you to everyone who reads and follows my blog.  It really does mean a lot to me, especially since when I started, I really assumed no one would really find my life very interesting!  I love reading your comments, and try to make sure I comment back.  But, I think I can get to 125 followers pretty quick, don't you?  There are a few different ways to score entries, and giveaway is open to anyone!
