A little Somethin' Somethin'!

Many of you may be wondering what you missed out in the something contest... well the wait is over... my dear bloggy friend Kristen @ loving our simple life won... if you haven't been by to say hello be sure and do...

and graciously excepted my offer to be my very first guest here is fish land to tell us all about it... so without further ado I give kristen my blog...




Hey y'all! (Said in my best Midwestern accent!) It's Kristen from Loving Our Simple Life! Today Marla has been kind enough to let me steal, ahem, I mean borrow her blog! Woohooo. My first guest post! You never know how crazy I could be on SOMEONE else's blog. Ooohhhhhh the possibilities.

Remember a couple of weeks back when the ever FAB-U-LOUS Marla did a giveaway? Did you enter?

Well I did, and I WON! I WON! I WON! I WON!!! (Dancing around the house yelling "I won", and throwing in the occasional Wooo Hoooo! Also said in my best Midwestern accent!)

I know, I know, I should try and be more mature about the whole thing, but seriously my blog friends, I NEVER win. And by NEVER, I mean NEVER!

So there I was, sitting on the couch next to the hubby with laptop in hand. Checking to see if possibly (not a chance, since again, I NEVER win) my luck could have changed. Could I have been lucky enough to win "something"? When sure enough, lady luck forgot to be against me, and was indeed on my side! I started yelling at Chet that I had won something!

"What did you win?"

"SOMETHING!"

"Well, what is it?"

"It's SOMETHING!"

"Kristen, clearly it is something, but what kind of SOMETHING did you win?"

"CHET, I DON"T KNOW! THAT'S WHY IT IS CALLED A SOMETHING!"

(Start thinking Abbot and Costello routine and you have what took place that night.)

But, really did it matter what my something was? I think not. The thrill for this Mama of two was in the winning!

Fast forward a week, and my sweet little somethin', somethin' arrived in the mail.


As our family gathered in the kitchen to unwrap the much awaited something, tension and excitement grew. Our 3 year old kept asking "What is it?". His Mama of course answered "something!" And the Abbot and Costello routine played out again.

And TE-DAH..............................This is what my "something" was!






A travel game called Ludo. The Perfect little somethin', somethin' for a traveling family of 4!!

Thanks again Marla for doing such a wonderful giveaway! You made this little Mama's day/week/month/year!

Now I promised Marla that I would give her blog back. As I too need to get to my much anticipated Fall TV line-up, I mean trash, or reality shows, whatever you want to call them. Thanks again Marla for being the Hostess with the Mostess and for letting me steal, ahem, borrow your blog for a post.
