Taste of Home Giveaway!

Ok, I know I've been a bad blogger lately, what with graduation, registration exams, studying, looking into opening my own place (yeah you read that right), checking business names, wondering how I'm going to get home for a visit, neglecting to shave my legs, searching for the elusive money tree, trying to get the pool opened, the fence back up and the roof fixed...

Did I mention that I haven't shaved my legs in over a month?!

Back on track now.... because I love you all; your comments, you taking the time to follow and read my blog, the emails the awards bestowed on me; and according to my sidebar I'm almost at 300 followers!! Today will be the first day of my "Taste of Home" giveaway!

  10. Hello there
    Those Rum and Butter Kisses are to die for. We had some last September when we were in Nfld. BTW Beautiful place, had the time of our lives, visited friends in Deer lake and travelled the island. Went through several packets of them in the car - lot of road to travel there lol

    Take care

  12. Don't shave your legs? Put on the socks. Problem solved. Gotta get me some Jam Jams.

  13. I love the socks:)
    I can totally relate to the shaved leg thing. But know that summer is here and it is too hot for long pants, I have succumb to the razor....

  20. I suspect that one of those items is non-edible. I can tell because I'm very astute about these things.

  21. Wow, you've really been busy lately!! Thanks for checking out my blog and for your entries. Older Mommy, Still Yummy is my sister, so she was helping me out with the contest.
    I'll add your name, "that girl from around the bay' (only one I have for now) in the contest.
    Thanks and Good Luck with your new business. We'll have to learn all about that, too.
