First, I think I better give you an idea of what's going on this week, you know, so you can plan your schedule accordingly - LOL!
*Tuesday - Tea For Two-sday as usual
*Wednesday - Info about my Blogaversary and a Prize Preview ('cause there are a few prizes and some were kindly donated!)
*Thursday - 1 Year Blogaversary - Woo Hoo!! Let the giveaways begin! I think the latest count is 8 different fabulous prizes. One of the prizes will have entry instructions only given on Twitter, so you might want to get signed up there now (you don't even have to be a blogger!) and start following me @stop4chocolate
Look at this super cute button that Sarah from Real Life made for me! Perfect for dressing up your blog and spreading the word about the fun and giveaways! If you post it on your blog (or facebook if you don't have a blog), you'll get an early extra entry for the giveaways! Just leave a comment here telling me about it. Thanks for sharing the fun!
*Friday - The party continues with Would You Like Chocolate With That? - a look back at the year of chocolate and your opportunity to link up chocolate posts.
*Saturday - Thoughts on blogging; giveaways still going...
*Sunday - Happy Easter! Have a blessed Resurrection Day!
*Monday - Last day of giveaways and it's actually my b-day!
Well, I suppose you would like to know how last week was. It was really nice having a blogging break! Though I wasn't gone, I was busy with Spring Break sorts of things, baseball, and my Dad visiting. It was lovely having the mental break, but still hopping on occasionally to comment and twitter.
Thank you so much to my sweet guest posters for helping me out: Kim, Sarah Mae, Alecia, Donna , and Pamela. You ladies are wonderful! I highly recommend using guest posters - I liked having them and I like being one, too. I think I'll write more on that in a future post.
While Dad was here, we shopped and ate out a lot (hello - that's why I'm blaming Dad for my weight gain). We had a great time touring a Cavern and Dad and my son "mined" for gemstones - very fun! Dad also got to see one of my son's baseball games and it just happened to be the team's first win - Woo Hoo! Go Royals!
Dad is back home now, but we hope that he will visit again soon! We ended our week with more baseball, a little relaxation, the beginning of a backyard project, and then a church potluck. Now hubby is off for this next week of Spring Break. I guess that means I will be busy - LOL!
But it is my Blogaversary this week and my birthday in a week! Um, in case you didn't know - that makes this my birthday week. I may be using that fact to get extra fancy coffee drinks this week and to eat out occasionally! I was going to say that it should allow me not to cook, but then I remembered that it will be Resurrection Day this Sunday and I will need to cook for that! At this point, I think I'm making ham, scalloped potatoes, roasted vegetables, strawberry poppy-seed slaw and a couple different cakes ('cause I am still trying to get a Cake Week ready for you all in the next month or so).
Guess I should end this! Long enough post for you? Well, you asked for it. oh. you didn't. oops.
Have a chocolate-filled Monday to start your week out right! :)
