Win a Lenovo laptop on "Dear Crissy"!

Win a Laptop!

Remember how you used to be able to buy a washer and dryer, or a TV, or cassette player (now I really sound OLD) and you would expect them to last a looooooong time? Maybe even decades? Well, give it up! Those days are gone. We're in the age of disposable appliances...and my guess is you've already gone through several computers since you bought your first one. (You really shouldn't let me get started on my rant. It reminds me of Gilda Radner's character on SNL, Miss Emily Litella, who harangued about "violins on television" only to realize later that she had misheard the topic! Genius...)

This post was supposed to be about a contest, right? Oh yes....blogger
Dear Crissy is giving away one Lenovo laptop computer to one of her followers. She gives you many ways to enter, so check out the link below and get to it! You never know when your computer is going to give-out! (jinx)

I entered Crissy’s Can’t Wait til Christmas Lenovo Laptop Giveaway and hope to win a $799.00 IdeaPad!

London...NOT on a budget!

WIN a statement necklace by Madewell!

Madewell, in case you haven't heard, or don't read fashion and beauty mags, or live under a an offshoot of J Crew. It's designed for the younger, trendier, (i.e. "skinnier") customer. Lucky for us, they make some things that are age and weight-proof! Stylepint is giving away a beautiful crystal statement necklace from Madewell. Check out the link to find out how to enter. It's that simple!

A whole new me!!

If I'm going to get serious about this project, then I have to get serious about this project. Or as one of my daughters puts it, "Where there's a way, there's a way!" What I'm trying to say is, "It's time for my blog to really reflect ME. The bottle brunette (I had no idea that there was a band with that name, honest!), the mom that's obnoxiously-proud of her kids, the makeup artist, the fashion junkie, the crazed contest enterer, and the wife that is still so in-love with her husband (hereafter known as "Hunky Hubby") that after 28 years of marriage, he still gives me googly-eyes. So, I'm embarking on a new adventure in blogging, and I hope you'll join me. Thanks and Happy Friday!
