Merci Merci Merci Merci Merci Merci Merci
Merci Merci... and so on.
It's the one year ANNIVERSARY
of my blog!!
Have a virtual strawberry to help me celebrate!
Mmmmm... so yummy!

My giveaway gift to you is a book that
I think you'll really like.
If you already own it, you can always give
it to a friend... regift it!!

New Noel is a great holiday book full of
wonderful ideas for the Christmas season.
My husband accidentally ordered 2 copies.
So there's one for me and one for you.
Lucky us!
I put a lot of post-its in mine marking all
those things I'd love to make.
I'll need to get started after the wedding.
The front cover

The back cover

Just leave a comment
and a winner will be picked Monday night.


DVD suggestion...
If you haven't seen Monarch of the Glen...
we loved it!
If you have Netflix... they have it.

And this week's total...
16.2 pounds lost!!

Thanks to all of you who supported my blog
through thick and thin.
I promise more creative blogs after the wedding.
(less than a month away)

With love to you all,

Happy Blogiversary and congrats on the weight loss!!
Monarch of the Glen was on TV here a few years ago now, and I loved it... when I got to see it!!! I love British shows...

Wanda said...

Wow, Congratulations on all your accomplishments. Yeah for a year of blogging ~~ and a great blog I might add!!

And the weight loss ~~~ Wow, that over three bags of potatoes !! When I was in a weight loss program my coach always used things like a pound of butter or 5 lbs of potatoes to show how much our weight "looked like" !!

So blessing on you dear friend!!!

Congratulations, Joni, on both your blogiversary as well as the wonderful (and healthy) progress you're making with the Jenny Craig program.

brigette said...

i'm thinking when someone is jumping up and down, saying "pick me, pick me" you should pick someone else, who is perhaps being a bit more POLITE. j/k anna.
