Let's Blog-scotch, shall we?

SHE'S BAAAAA-AAAAACCCKKKKK!!!!

I would say my December was my worst ever for having too much to do, and not enough time in which to get it done, so you may have noticed that I didn't do the best job with posting or visiting. BUT, while roaming around your blogs, I stumbled across a few "cool", or shall I say "interesting" things I thought I'd share, just in case you missed them. Take your pick, look at 1 or a few or none, whatever you feel like!


Cool thing #1:
If you never made it over to Vanessa's Halloween Party back in October (which I just recently saw that she was featured in Artful Blogging), then please go and take a look at her cute little creations - what an imagination she has! I love all the colors she uses! Click here: Twinkly Wishes for a Magical New Year! (+ collecting your wishes). And don't miss the post of her trip to her parent's home for Christmas. Her parent's live in an awesome "Miami-ish looking house" (that's not in Miami) with lovely decorations, and tablescapes! And get a load of those trees - what eye candy! I hope I'm lucky enough to spend Christmas 2009 there! :O) Still waiting to be invited *HINT* *HINT*!

Cool thing #2:

A candy chandy! Take a hop over to Sandra Evertson's blog at

http://sandraevertson.blogspot.com/2008/12/dear-santa.html

Can't you just see children dreaming of one of these in their rooms? (Or adults!) And there's a sweet little story to go with it, in case you want to go "awww....."


Cool Thing #3:

I would say this was one of the most interesting posts on which I've ever laid my eyes. Do you know how you sometimes go blog-scotching (like blog hop-scotch)? WELL...one day, I did one of those blog, to blog, to blog hops, and came across some very interesting information. As my blog name indicates, I am "40-something" (the lower side ;O) years old, and I thought I knew a thing or two, but apparently I'm not as smart as I think I am. I have NEV-A, EV-A read anything about styling a muff, trimming one's hedges, or "landscaping a lady garden", as the Broke Ass Bride calls it, so.........if you want a tutorial on that, just please feel free to click on the blue Broke Ass Bride above, and blog-scotch on over there and take a little look-ie - you might learn something too! :O) I'm thinking "Broke Ass" might be related to Nikkicrumpet because she's a hoot too!

And speaking of Nikki, if you haven't seen her Diet Plan for 2009 that she's offering for a "small fee", well then just cruise on over there too. I'm convinced she's going to be Oprah's new diet guru! Both posts are things that make ya go hmmmmm is just all I can say!

Happy New Year, Everyone! May you be blessed beyond measure in 2009!
