Checked and Double Checked Out!

Even though the only thing I'm writing at this moment is my name on a check to the tax office, I thought I would stop just long enough to tell y'all about two more great giveaways going on right now! Sheesh!!! I'm getting to where I'm beginning to feel like Rod Roddy..."Come on down and see what you can win!". First up for y'all is over at One Gal's Trash. Pam is going to be celebrating a birthday March 1...a huge birthday as a matter of fact. Sssh! Don't tell anyone, but it's 50, she said in a whisper. To help her celebrate, she would just love for y'all to drop by, leave a comment and become a follower. Her goal is to hit 500 by her birthday. Lofty goals for sure, but I bet we can help make her birthday wish come true....or at least help blow out all those candles! So head on over and maybe, just maybe, you'll win one of her five party favors!

Second, one of my favorite people ever...Sue...is having a giveaway to help with the launching of the Barn House Boys new online Marketplace. (I've already been in the barn doing a little window shopping earlier this morning and I'll give y'all a review on this exciting news later! In the meantime...can you say OHMYLANTA?!?!) Anyway...SQUIRREL!...as I was saying. Sue is giving away the cutest wristlet to maybe you or you or maybe ME! It's all fun and part of what makes this such a great venture or should I say ADventure? (Psst! Her aprons are just 2die4 and I want one in every color!) Head on over there and be sure and tell Sue AND Pam hello from me, 'kay?
I guess I better close for now. I've made the state of Texas happy with my check, now let's see if Uncle Sam can make me happy by giving back some of Cat Daddy's hard earned money!

Thank you, Gracias, Merci! And all front and center and everything...Wow! I JUST posted about Lorena Bobbitt's coffee cup, tried to postpone the post until tomorrow, but am having technical difficulties. Your gals will have to scroll down a bit to see giveaway details, but at least have a good story to hear first! Good Luck with the taxes, keep us posted.

Deb,
Have to tell you that I have this Lyle Lovett CD and it's great! LOL...I haven't heard it in a while though and thanks for reminding me. The girls in the office are going to hear a little 'Lyle Love' for a while!
I did my taxes yesterday...I get a small check back. I adjusted my weekly so I sort of break even...couldn't handle writing a check to Uncle Sam every spring...URGH!
Barnhouse...what can I say...been there (early this morning), bought that (ironstone platter)and Holy Cats! What a great little shop!
Cold as the dickens here and snowing like crazy...can't wait for SPRING! :-) Tami
