A Cause for Celebration. . .and a GIVEAWAY!

*** Drawing is Closed***


Happy Holidays to all of you!  I had such a rewarding week this week!  I've been waiting and waiting for this week to come....because it meant my name was to be published in Woman's World Magazine. 

This is the cover...
A couple months back I received an email from an adorable girl {love the way she writes} asking me if I would be interested in having my opinion on BAKING TOOLS published in the Woman's World Magazine... ummmm, well, perhaps I should think for a minute...... well, YEAH!!!  At first I thought maybe it was a joke!  So, I emailed her back with a response and some follow-up questions.  An immediate {and I mean IMMEDIATE} reply popped up with a phone number to call for the interview, but the following day.  Of course, what to do first... CALL MY MOM!  Second, text my husband... Third, dance around the house like a little girl on Christmas morning that just got a pink pony! Fourth, SCREAM! Alright, you get the picture, right?

So, the following day I called her... we chit-chatted like old friends. What a fun gal she is! It was so weird to me how in that little moment, my hard work was truly paying off.  You know, when I started my blog, it wasn't because I wanted to be famous or become rich off a blog.  I just didn't see the possibilities in all that.  I just wanted to share the passion of what I loved.... baking, cooking, and being a housewife!  I have wanted to be a housewife my whole life and this was just an amazing thing to be able to do from home.  As the last year has went by, my blog has become PART of me.  I love it. And when I don't spend time there, I MISS it!  I get to bake all sort of yummy goodies for my friends, family and neighbors, take pictures, and share the recipes will others.  I get to intereact with people whom I have never met in person, but who I truly adore and appreciate, because they are part of my life now.  I also get to hear from those I do personally know and love.  I don't mean to be all mushy, but I just want to thank everyone for all of their support in the last year!  THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

You Deserve the Best!..... pg 40.... can you see my name?
Did I say thank you?  Well, probably not enough..... so I would like to show you how much I thank you!  Can you guess what my favorite baking gadget is?  What do I use alot in my recipes?  Of course, there are sooooo many things I love.  But this year, my most favorite gadget was the SILPAT!  So, I AM GIVING ONE AWAY!  {This is the moment where YOU jump up and down and SCREAM like the little girl on Christmas morning with the pink pony :)} 


To enter to win a SILPAT, just take a minute a do the following things:
Each one of you has FOUR chances to win!
