Rafaella Gabriela Sarsparilla

As y'all know the next great American novelist can't wear two hats at one time (or at least that is what She has heard Her say time and again), so She's sneaking in here and doing a post for Her. In case you don't recognize me...around the Casita de Trash, they call me She. You know...as in She always takes care of that or see if She has any money or how about She never listens to me and let's not forget...I thought She was going to the post office. Remember me now? Yeah...you've probably got your own version of a She living at y'alls homes too!

Anyway, as She was saying, since Ms. Harper Lee-Wannabee has a wee touch of ADD (or as Jenn likes to call it...SQUIRREL!), She thought She would give y'all a heads up on what She has found! Just don't tell Her that She told you...or She might get in trouble for using the computer thingy!
Would you just take a look at what Sissie's Shabby Cottage is giving away just by visiting and leaving a comment. AMAZING!!! What's Her favorite saying? Oh yeah...Fab U Lous! Go over and visit...Sissie's blog is just beautiful...time well spent for sure! Next up is this tote that GYPSIE On My Mind is giving away just as easy. Visit, comment and voila...you are entered. Again, easy to do and an easy on the eyes blog! She likes easy...in fact, She's heard Her say that She is easy, but She's also heard Cat Daddy say there isn't anything easy about Her! Boy oh boy, are Her feathers gonna get ruffled when She tells you about this giveaway. One of Her BFF's Pam at Frippery is having a 300th post (and every one of them is a pearl) giveaway! (She just loves this woman!) This is only part of what Pam has to offer. In addition to really great writing, Pam is giving away a 2die4 ankle bracelet, this ruffled flower bracelet made with Pam's own two little hands AND...wait for it...CHOCOLATE! Are you swooning? She knows She was when She heard Her telling Cat Daddy all about it! You might could score some extra points with Pam if you were to tell Her that you think She is pretty....just a suggestion! Heck...try it with all three! Now hurry over to all three of these ladies blogs 'cause the deadlines are just around the corner and you wouldn't want Her to win now would y'all? Be sure and tell 'em She sent you!
Well She figures She's probably made Her hopping mad by this point...so what the heck. Let's just see what Her boiling point is by divulging one other little tidbit. Jenn has already shouted it to the world, so it's not like She's trying to scoop Her or anything like that, right?

Guess who in no longer on an oxygen line? You guessed it...Baby Bella! Yippee! Bella still will be monitored at night to make sure the stats stay stable, but no more lugging that tank around. She is free to pick Bella up and walk outside or anywhere She wants to without extra cargo on the shoulder, but you know...She hardly thinks about the line anymore or even sees it. Still...it's one more step in God's plan for Bella. Bella's lungs are no longer considered micro-preemie, but the doctors will continue to treat her as if she has asthma as a precaution.

She thought She would include this photo of Bella at birth weighing 15 ounces and one photo from a day ago at fourteen pounds just to show how good our God is. She can't believe the little Trashette will be a year old in less than two months. She would want me to tell y'all thank you for all the prayers that went up for our Bella. She's pretty sure Her feelings are just like mine...it is a privilege to say thank you...over and over...again and again! Her tears of gratitude could fill an ocean.
Bella must be reading Her mind 'cause that is just what She needs to do...take a bath and think about going beddie bye before Her. She always uses all the hot water which puts Her in a pickle!

Let me know when you would like to hear more of what She has to say and She'll hurry back toot sweet! BTW, hasn't She heard Her say that's Texan for real quick?
