My Winner and My Great Winnings!

Thank you for participating in my latest giveaway. I so appreciate you! As always there could only be one winner even though of course you are all winners to me. I know you hate to hear just keep entering and you will win but it is true. Just ask this winner.

 Since finding the Random Generator site I have been using it to choose my winners.  My problem is trying to figure out how to copy and paste their winning number to my site. This time the number 36 came up which is Marydon at Blushing Rose!  Marydon I am so happy you won my giveaway and if you will send me your mailing address and phone number to I will get your information sent to our great sponsor Macaroni Grill. Hope you enjoy this gift.

Love having giveaways and now that the weather is cooling off I will have one for my candy any day now.  So stayed tuned. I also realized how many friends I have now following and looks like I am close to 500 which totally blows this ole grandmas mind so when that happens it will be a big giveaway. I have to figure out what to do for that one. lol

My girlfriend Max who stalks my blog and I am so glad she does. hahaha I wish we could talk her into doing one. She would just love it as we all do. Anyway Max wrote me this email yesterday about my talking in my sleep. It seems according to this email I have been doing it for ever and ever.

Here is what she sent me:

Hahahaha!  Do you remember coming home with me for the weekend from Blinn?  After we'd gone to bed and you were sound asleep, Mike E. called.  While I was talking to him, you joined in on the conversation -- while asleep.  I finally handed you the phone and you talked to Mike forever, never waking up.  You'd better be careful when you invite someone to sleep over!!  

Thanks Max for reminding me how dangerous my talking can be. What did Mike E and I talk about. He was probably prying answers out of me about you.

My mother use to tell me that my brother Doy and I use to carry on conversations during the night while we were sleeping and we were in two different bedrooms. Poor daddy had to get up every morning at 3:30 I bet he loved those nights.

I guess now Tinkerbell could write a book about me and my talking at night. Sometimes I wake myself up telling someone to put their hands behind their back so I can belt them up.

In September I won this beautiful necklace from Laura at White Spray Paint. I just love turquoise aything and this necklace is so much fun to wear. I just wish Laura knew how much I enjoyed wearing it to Round Top/Warrenton. Thank you Laura for drawing my name.

Another giveaway that I loved winning was from sweet Dulcy at Dulcys Doorstep. It is the greatest magazine about lovely hand designed purses and yes Dulcy is so gifted her purses and article are in the wonderful magazine. Thank you Dulcy for drawing my name love your purses in this magazine.

If you have not visited Laura or Dulcy please do. You will love them and their beautiful sites.

Hope all of you are having a wonderful peaceful week be sure and let me know how you are doing! Also I want to thank all my new friends that have joined my site. I so appreciate each and every friend that I have one here. Please know that I try my best to visit you when I can. Since my back injury in April I am limited on my computer usage but I do appreciate all of you and your comments. Keep them coming.

My part of Texas is suppose to get rain for today and tomorrow and boy how we do need some of that special water from the heavens.

Love to all

My younger sister always talked in her sleep.
But she was always screaming and scaring the hell out of the whole family. One time my mom found her looking up the chimney of the fireplace screaming he's gettting away. Was she talking about santa???? I don't know if she still does it I haven't heard her kids say so.
Thanks for your visit as always

That is a lovely turquoise necklace, to be sure. I have a soft spot for that kind of thing!

I hope your back continues to heal and improve!

Good Morning Maggie Sweetie...
Oh I am SO over the top thrilled that Marydon won. Yea SIS. She will love this win. I for one adore your giveaways, they are always fun to play.

Now these wins of yours, well aren't you Ms Fashion in that turquoise necklace? I love it, and I can just see you and Ms Pearl in it now. How pretty it is. I also love the magazine. What treasures. Lucky Ducky for you.

Talking in your sleep. Now I have never done that, but sure would be fun to listen in and ask a few questions to see what the answers might be. Oh yes, I can be a stinker sometimes.
Love it.

Have a gorgeous day Ms Maggie. Know that you are SO loved. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

My brother was a sleep talker and I learned about the birds and bees through his unconscious mind.
Condolences on the World Series. However it was certainly not a shabby ending for a long well played season.
I did have fun chanting "CO-D" however.

Sometimes I pee when I laugh, too. That is, if I don't take preventive measures.

Gee, sometimes just reading you, I feel like we have just had a conversation!! You are way too much fun! Marydon is such a pretty name...glad she won just to hear her name!
Sleep talking is hilarious, I have one that sleeps next to me. My hubby does it and it just makes me laugh.
Your necklace is gorgeous, I'd love to see what you wore with it! Neat!

I think it's so funny that I post right after my good buddy Donna! I think your friend would enjoy blogging. Most people think their lives are boring and they have nothing to write about. I tell them just write about the simple things and be surprised how not boring you are! Love the necklace and aren't you just the luckiest blogger around? Have a great week Maggie!

Didn't you just love that rain that came through yesterday? It was really making a fuss during the middle of the night last night, but I was able to go right back to sleep after a quick wake up. I'm not surprised you have 500 followers--you are so much fun, girl!
