No Way!

This weekend a few really cool things happened.  

First, my husband and I got in an argument.  No, that's not the cool part.  But there I was, fuming away after our argument, and I logged in to my email.  What was waiting for me?


A lovely note from Kim of Today's Creative Blog.  She was writing to tell me that my little blog was being featured!  Kim's blog was one of the first that I ever found in the world of decorating blogs, and I found many of you as a result of her.  I can't believe she thinks I am worth highlighting, but I am not complaining!  :)  Wa-hoo!  

The second cool thing is that I have had tons of comments on my 100th post!  Man, you girls love you some wine charms, don't you?  It made me so happy to read your comments, though, and without further ado, I want to announce the winner of my first ever giveaway!

The winner is comment #74 (chosen by my husband)...Sit a Spell!  Come on down, girl, and claim your prize!  Just drop me an email at buzzingsofaqueenbee@hotmail.com and we can work out the details.  

This week I hope to keep you entertained by a visit to my friend's house, where I will show you some of the cool projects that I would like to copy from her.  I am also about to totally blow your mind by telling you what my favorite Christmas gift was.  A few hints: I have no idea how to use it, and I will probably break it before I figure it out.  Do you know what it is?

Oh, and my husband and I did make up after our argument!  I didn't want to leave you hanging there.  And I am having regular contractions, but so far we're still hanging at about 2 cm. dilated, so I think you'll have to put up with me for awhile longer.  :)

Kudos on being featured! That is wonderful news.

Congrats to "Sit a Spell"...she's so deserving to win! Sniff, sniff...can you tell I'm a wee bit disappointed that I didn't win? Oh, well, better luck next time, right? :)

The news about your Christmas gift has me wondering...A LOT! Of course, I haven't a clue what it could be!

Congrats to you, also, for being a featured blogger...WAY TO GO!!! Glad you and your hubby made up! Have an awesome Monday!

Congrats on your feature!! How fun! About your Cmas present...I'm thinking a sewing machine? An embroidery machine?

Shilo said...

Congrats on being featured! That's wonderful.
Having a 4 month old, I haven't yet forgotten those last few days and weeks of pregnancy so I'm praying for you today!
Have a great week!

Tricia said...

Congrats on the feature! You totally deserve it! :)

Do you have a Wii? We just got one for Christmas and the hubby and I decided we'd end our next dispute with a round of boxing on the Wii...take out our aggressions there! :)

As for the Christmas gift...hmmm...sewing machine or a camera are my guesses. I think someone has already guessed both of them but I'm still learning how to use both of those things and always afraid I'm going to break them!

Glitter and Bliss said...

Congrats to you. I love your blog!!! I also love the "Barefoot Contessa". I got my sis her new book for Christmas. It is wonderful.

Joanna said...

Congratulations..Your blog is awesome! I can't wait to see the projects and I also can't wait to know what the gift was.

Ms. Tee said...

How neat Carrie! And with your contractions starting, your sweet baby could be showing up in no time! Keep us posted :)

Wendy said...

Hey Carrie! I said it before, but I'll say it again...Congrats on being featured at TCB! It was just a matter of time :-)

Gray Matters said...

So cool - I think I already know what you got because I got the same thing . . . a sewing machine. I just signed up for some classes through the local community college, but I know you're about to have your hands full soon with the little one.

Ally0005 said...

Congrats! You so deserve it.

Lisa said...

How cool! I told you that you were very popular! : )

Did you get an I-phone? Is that what it is? Or probably something crafty....?!

We are leaving for Scottsdale in a few days, so I'll check back on you when we get back.

theArthurClan said...

You are one creative chicky and totally deserve to be featured on that blog!

I'm going to guess that you got a fancy, schmancy camera for Christmas? (Sorry ~ I've got cameras and photos on the brain!) :)

Miss(es) Canadian Pie said...

I was so excited to see you featured on TCB. Your blog is just so great and you're a total peach. You absolutely deserved it.

Can't wait to see what this new gift is!! And woot woot on the baby coming soooooon!

Sandy said...

Kim's blog is great. Congrats! And I was going to ask you what's going on w/your contractions ... :)

Just wanted you to know that we had the most delicious dinner tonight... Horseradish Meatloaf! It was SO good and as my husband said,"This is definitely a keeper!" Thanks for sharing the recipe and giving me another recipe to add to our favorites:)

Congrats too for being featured on Today's Creative Blog!!!

Yay for TCB-that's how I found you and you are my new favorite girl. Anyone that's as much of a fan of grosgrain ribbon as I am can be my friend.

As far as the christmas gift...hmmm, a power painter!?! The reason I say it is because I got one and I had no idea how to use it and I did end up breaking it! ;)
