I drew a winner for the Avon giveaway that ran from last week.
Here's a picture of the slip I drew:
In case you can't read it, it says: Mike! So, Mike, you're the winner. Just verify your mailing address with me at firstname.lastname@example.org (don't worry - I won't tell anyone!) and then 3Carnations can get your gift on it's way to you.
I had fun, I hope you all did too! Thanks again to 3Carnations.
And, remember, if you're in need of some new Avon products, please visit and order from this site.
We had a busy and fun weekend. On Saturday, a friend of Buddy's came over while the friend's mom worked. I am telling you, when these two boys get together, it is like NO work for me at all. They go off and entertain themselves with video games and just hanging out.
The Evil Twin's brother, his wife and our two nieces are in town this weekend as well, so we made plans to see them on Sunday. My MIL wanted us ALL to get together (meaning our family, her and her husband, my BIL and his family and my SIL (the Evil Twin's sister). We decided that hosting a cook out here might be the most practical solution for everyone.
We have plenty of room, the kids could play outside and we could all eat like pigs.
All of that and more was accomplished. We laughed like crazy - like we always do when we get together.
I really do love the Evil Twin's family and I truly lucked into some great in-laws. I just wish we all lived closer and could see each other more often. But, we keep in touch by phone and emails.
I guess we just have to do the best we can and enjoy the times we do have to spend with one another.
Happy Monday, troopers!
