Monday Ramblings and a Giveaway

Good morning Monday
you came rather quickly much to my dismay

this week-end flew by
I look back on it and try to piece it all together

by the time Friday night comes
I am toast

Saturday was busy 
as I knew it would be

I attempted to get the upstairs put back together
and I am happy to report that besides some filing
the office is almost livable again

Cooper got a haircut

I really do not like doing this in the colder months
but it is needed
even the groomer said
she has not seen a coat as thick as his.

I got some shopping done
and stopped to pick up some beverages on the way home
and was quite excited to find this ~

I tried it at the wine festival
and fell in love
it is from Germany and it is really good.

Sunday I headed out to run errands 
and go back and get a quilt I had seen on Saturday

I drove through hoards and gobs of traffic
only to find that they were CLOSED on a Sunday

no ~ really??!!

I will not be able to get back out to that area until Thursday night
as they are only open til 6 ~ M-W
and I work until 6
is this some divine intervention
we will see.....

a shop that was open was my favorite cupcake spot
so I bought 6 and as I type this
I have eaten 1 1/2
I think that is good ~ no?

chocolate cupcake with peanut butter frosting =
pure heaven

I did dig out my cards yesterday
and sorted through some things ~ gifts that I have already purchased

this week will be a hunker down and get busy week
I have Friday off ~ my last vacation day of the year
so I will enjoy my 4 day work week.

Now to my giveaway....

a month or so ago
I had a jewelry party
Lia Sophia has some beautiful stuff
and when I placed my order
I found something I thought I would share
with all of you

it is a bracelet ~ "Charade"
I love the vintage look of it

All you have to do to win this beauty is:

1. Leave me a comment
2. Be a follower of this blog
and you can have a 3rd chance to win if you
3. Post or link this giveaway on your blog

Make sure you leave one comment for each
and I will draw the winner on 
Friday ~ Nov. 26th

Thank you for all the lovely comments 
and birthday wishes for Gina
I neglected to tell you that she was my cousin
but more like a sister
and as you can tell
means the world to me.

Good luck on the giveaway and have a fantastic week.
