Hey ya'all! (channeling my inner Paula Dean)

Just a few quick tid bits!

Stellan Bible

If you signed up to be a part of Operation Stellan Bible, I sent out an important email about that this morning.  If you did not receive it, please email me at manda2177@aol.com.

National Help a Pregnant Woman Day is TOMORROW!

You still have time to plan an act of kindness for someone you know.  This might mean the world to them and I bet it will make YOU feel all warm and fuzzy too. 😉

I am so excited to share with you the testimonials of how this little idea has affected people!  If you have anything you want to share, you can email me or leave it in the comments.

I am not doing a Mr. Linky or anything, but I would be happy to post a link to your blog if you blog about it. 

(I know some of you have already, but I didnt keep track *boo, hiss* so please just let me know again)

Twin Cities Live


I will be on TCL again this Thursday at 3:00pm to talk about blogging.  We have four blogs scheduled to discuss, and three of them are local.  So be sure to tune in if you are a MN blogger!  Also, the non local blogger is one of my favorites of all time

I cant wait to show you how we are going to feature her!!

There should be a link up same day if you can't tune in.


And I would be remiss if I didn't mention that I am SO so excited for a certain 'season' in Minnesota.  Its is one of my favorite ways to spend some time… and spend my dimes!

Thats right, Garage Sale Season is soon upon us!  Do you have any great Garage Sales tips?  Do you like to visit estate sales and thrift shops?   Do you even have garage sales in your area??

I cant wait to share with you some of my 'trash to treasure' finds!

Share with your friends!

  1. I seriously think I have shopping ADD. In garages, yards, AND department stores.
    I take one look around and if there’s more than two or three things that interest me, I go into shut-down mode. Yeah. I’m pathetic.
    Totally need a shopping buddy who knows what she’s, er, I’m looking for.

  2. I need to get myself out of FB and back into the land of blogs – I have ONLY been ready Jen… I MISSED the Stellan Bible!!! 🙁 I SO WOULD HAVE PARTICIPATED!
    I can’t wait to hear about the final delivery!
    Miss you!

  3. Best wishes on the TV show!!!! How exciting.
    And yes, Garage Sale season is my FAV! My family has been doing an annual garage sale for over 20 years. It’s always the first weekend in May – and we have tons and tons of people come. We have our regulars 🙂 We usually make over $1500 every time! It’s a blast and a tradition I just love.
