just celebrating. don't worry about it.
Just stopping in for a minute for a few sweet surprises.
First one--if your name is Amanda and you blog over at Tales From A Far, well guess what--
you are going to be hanging out on my sidebar this month compliments of your husband.
Yes, you heard right. He went right behind that back of yours and contacted me about how he could get your blog on my blog (such a sweetheart). So yaaaaaaaaaaaaay for surprises.
Go hug him right now. Anything happens beyond a hug is your call ;)
Second--if your name is Allison, you won yourself $50 bucks to Swimspot. You are going to look hot in whatever it is you choose, I just know it.
And thiiiiird-if your name is Chelsea, you my friend just won the HUGE August group giveaway.
I think that just means you won twenty-seven freakin' things. Uhh. Happy Saturday to you too.
I will be emailing you two lucky animals later on.
Now...I am off to go catch some sleep so I can wake up EARLIER than what I do for work to tailgate tomorrow. Yes. "Kegs and Eggs" at 7 am sharp. The season is upon us kids. Go Irish.
It should be noted that both pictures featured in todays post are circa 2010.
It's weird.
I look like two years younger or something.
One final surprise.
Remember that onesie that I purchased for sir Edward Duke Rancic?
Turn's out that onesie made it's first E News! appearance this week.
Watch this to see what I am talking about.
Or just look at this screen shot.

Now if only I could meet my little nephew, the world would be complete.
Duke, I love you already and I promise to be the best Aunt possible.
Don't listen to what my other nieces and nephews say...I really am cool.

Well, there you have it---happy three day weekend loves.
Go do something fun....
Like wake up at 6 am for a football game or something.

  19. OMG can I just say how cute that is of Amanda's hub?

  20. Ok I'm glad to see I'm not the only one obsessed with Edward Duke, or more accurately his parents. Remember when I told you I was coming to Indiana? Well I did, and of course had a blast EXCEPT for one teensy thing!! Every time we visit Indiana we go to Chicago, which I love, well this time my goal was simple, GET TO RPM to see if I see Guiliana & Bill. Well, that was the plan from the beginning until I found out that they were in CO picking up their precious baby boy. So, when I found that out I was like "Well we don't have to go to RPM since they are in CO anyway." Well you can imagine my complete DISMAY when on Sunday I get on twitter & see where they WERE AT RPM celebrating their anniversary ON SATURDAY!!!!!!! Can we say complete disappointment??? I mean I tweeted Guiliana directly to see if they were going to be in Chicago over Labor Day & everything. I guess she must have overlooked the tweet. I thought for sure she would at least send me a text or something to let me know their plans. Maybe she just wanted to keep it low key, I guess I understand, ok no I don't, I was soooo disappointed!! Alas, such is life & I guess there's always next go around. Random post I know, just thought I'd share :D

  21. Can I say I LOVE your blog, and share your love for G&B. I like to pretend they are friends of mine and my husband. You and G are totally going to be besties in real life! I can feel it!


I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
