Three Year Blog-iversary & a Giveaway !


Whoo Hoo !! Today is not only my THREE year Blog-iversary, BUT....................



It is ALSO my Two Hundredth Post !!! Yippee !!!!!!!

How is that for timing ? lol ! It sure seems like I posted MORE than that. I guess I am more quiet than some of you sweet peeps :) Of course in "Real life" I am not much of a talker. Although my friends might tell you otherwise, :)

Anywhoo, Tell us about the Giveaway Rhea !!!!

Well, It is Sweets for my Sweets :) Two Giveaways. One for 3 years blogging and one for finding 200 things to talk about. :)

The First Giveaway is for this sweet set of My Mini Faux Cupcakes and matching Pink Roses Cupcake stands. :) I will throw in a few more surprises too for the Lucky winner as well.
My Second Giveaway is a set of Three of my Large Cupcakes in your choice of Colors, and a few other goodies thrown in.
All you have to do is leave a comment on THIS Post. That's it. :) I will Pick Two Winners on Wednesday, June 16th :)

Hugs,

Rhea

Happiest Congratulations Rhae!! So glad I found your blog who knows how many posts ago! I have enjoyed each entry and getting to know you. Thanks for your honesty about things that are happening in your life and health.

I do hope you are feeling some better these days though I know how it goes with the Fibro. I just finished up a Rodeo Bible Camp (cooking) and am totally exhausted though I so enjoyed the time and the kids.

Looking forward to many more posts friend!
