Prizes & Silliness & Smalltowns Abound

I've won a giveaway.  It's rather exciting, don't you know.  I've won some faux diamonds!!  Well, technically they are called "simulated".  Anyway, I really am pleased about it.  When I travel I always worry a maid at a hotel is going to accidentally take my diamonds or my pearls with her/him.  I know, that's terrible.  But I worry.

When I dive into the pool at the club, I often fear that my diamonds may come unlatched and fall out.  As a matter of fact, this did happen once. 

So who wouldn't love a pair of "simulated" diamonds to take on your travels, or to wear to the pool?  AND..the best part is...they are FREE.  Well, they really were FREE for me.  For you...they are $3.77 or some such in shipping.  Don't believe me?  Go HERE to see what I'm talking about :)  Thank you Mon Cheri for this wonderful giveaway!!!


BFF sent me this link the other day.  She said, and I quote, "just because I know you like seeing crazy dog stuff..."  And the link sent me to this:

Yep.  You are seeing this correctly.  It's a little "cover" for your pup's bum.  Just in case they have a dirty bum.  Ick!  But, if you feel that you may need some, be sure to visit THIS Etsy Shop HERE to order them...


A very special blog friend sent me a little note in the mail the other day.  And inside of the note was the most lovely little token for luck.  And on the back of the token, in script, is the word LOVE.  And I'm carrying that sucker everywhere with me from here on out.  So watch out boys ;)

Thank you my sweet friend!


Another very special blog friend sent me something last week, and I've been DYING to share it with you all.  So, obviously I live in Smalltown, VA...right?  Yes.  That's right.  Well, it really is a SMALL CITY.  But, for all intents and purposes (and for everything that happens around here) it is Smalltown, VA.

Anyway, my dear friend Katie, who has a lovely blog called Westie Julep where she shares the adventures of her two westies Julep and Derby (I know!  How cute!), took a  photo and sent it to me.   She said she saw this book and it made her think of me: 

Isn't that cutest???  So, of course I had to immediately figure out what this book was all about.  And where I could purchase it.  And so on....

So much fun!  Thank you ever so much for thinking of me Katie :)


Finally, quite a few of you have asked where to acquire a set of Yoga Toes!  I found them on Amazon.com.  AND...from what I hear, the non-name brand ones work just as well :)

My knee is feeling better today, but not so much better than I'm going to be making it to Zumba tonight.  I think taking this week off is probably in my best interest!  I'm off to the grocery store and liquor store to purchase ingredients for one of our favorite cocktails. 

Wednesday's weather is going to be dark & stormy for MK, WIMP and I.  At least......it is at Seersucker Central.  Umbrellas and raincoats optional :)

Nice earrings, who wouldn't want love to look like a million bucks without the worry of losing the real thing.
That doggy bum cover is too much. And I know what comes out of there doesn't smell like a bed of flowers either. Are they by chance scented...lol

The dog butt cover is hysterical. I don't know if I would want to be the one to pull it off!!!

I don't think I'll be getting any flower stickies for my boys... but having a two white dogs I can understand the idea :) But I keep the butts in check, no worries!

I have zumba on Wednesday nights... and I have knee troubles too. mine hurt FOREVER... it sucked but I can at least work out again.
