Because I must Blog just turned one. Woot!(she says ducking - knowing the masses expected much more exciting news)
Pop open the bottle and grab yourself a glass, because we're all cheers and smiles here and wouldn't dare let this momentous occasion go by without a little fanfare.
I shall start by thanking all of you for hanging with me through all the rants and continuing to come back even when I was at my whiniest of whiny. What brings you back I'll never know but I thank you nonetheless.
To further show my gratitude I bring you WM's favorite things (think Oprah's favorite things).
One of you lucky peeps will win two of my very favorite things:
(sorry guys, unlike Oprah, I ain't got the dough to give gifts to you all but just know that I would if I could)
I love my Krista Handbag
Be the first on your block to have one of these super cute, super funky Krista Handbags. Krista is a local designer that I first spotted at a fair at TomGirl's high school. I instantly fell in love with these hip handbags. Only I couldn't decide which style and design I loved most. I finally opted for the regular style Prestige bag and it didn't disapoint. It's sturdy enough to hold my mountains of crap and realistically probably makes me look cooler then I am.
Krista has generously offered to share the love. Head on over there and check out her fabulous designs (she's also got one in basic black with a pink ribbon supporting the cure) then come back and tell me which style and design you like the most and the lucky winner will win his/her favorite bag (and fellas they'd make a fabulous gift)
I loved the book The Middle Place
As a "daddy’s girl" and now a mother and the child of a breast cancer survivor I had an inkling I’d enjoy Kelly Corrigan’s book The Middle Place. What I wasn’t prepared for was falling in love with this book.
The Middle Place is Kelly’s real life story. A wife and mother newly diagnosed with breast cancer Kelly's story is ultimately about family. She writes about being an adult and mother to her own children but simultaneously being able to be the adult child of her parents when she needs them most. The Middle place is that place. That place where she is not just an adult but she is also her parent's daughter.
She masterfully takes you on her journey through that middle place and with the turn of each page Kelly draws you in with her honesty, her humor and genuine feelings. In truth when I finished reading the Middle Place it was as if I’d said goodbye to a friend. Her story is that good.
Thus making it one of my new favorite things. The lucky winner will also get a copy of this incredible book.
How's that for some "thank you" love ?
Lastly, I must give a quick shout out to my girl Amy. Amy is such a fantabulous gal and has the distinct "honor" of being my first reader/commenter and will always hold a special place in the ol' WM heart .
Now, what are you waiting for!? Go check out Krista then come on back and enter.
*the fine print - One lucky weiner -I meant winner- will be selected at random and announced on 4/1 from all entries received by 3/31/08.
Wishing you Much love and much luck,
