Hi-Jack my blog PLEASE-- I need HELP again $50 - $100 giveaway

Ok, sorry for not putting up the party Monday night. 
It completely slipped my mind, I wonder how that happened. 
Oh I know, I'm busy packing, moving, and all that good stuff, he he. 

So too keep my mind sane, and give myself a small little break, please note that the party will be on hold until NEXT year, which luckily is just around the corner, so don't be too sad :)

The next couple weeks will be the worst as we are planning on moving by Dec 1st. So if you could all just hang in there for a couple more weeks, I can promise that SANTA will bring tons of goodies for my most loyal friends. YUP that huge giveaway that was supposed to happen in September, will now take place just in time for lots of great Christmas presents.

Still with me? 

Life can take you in the most unusual places sometimes, and this is just another road I need to go through, to get to where I need to be. I appreciate all the support, and kind words as always. You are an awesome bunch of friends, truly!!

NOW, I am once again calling ALL bloggers to lend me a hand, and a blog post or two :)

I am opening up my blog to all of you, so send me your COMPLETED post ( please include the ENTIRE HTML code)

My photo
In my spare time I enjoy cooking, and baking. In fact my mother and I have been making cakes for over 30 years. I also love gardening, traveling, and all things crafty. I struggle daily to keep my like organized, along with my never ending battle to keep the house clean. I adore my three kids MOST of the time, and can usually be found doing the mom thing from morning till night. I try to catch a few mommy moments, but those are hard to find in this wonderful life of mine. I am blessed and happy, and am thrilled you stopped by today :)
