PS-Seriously the Grey's Anatomy season finale has me depressed. Why do I get emotionally roped in to these shows? Patrick Dempsey is a BIG, fat liar. There I said it. Also, I got a few "hate" emails from friends regarding the constant Hootie and the Blowfish singing in their heads all day yesterday-you are welcome. And, I Only Wanna Be With You. :)


  1. I'm a follower...!

    More stationery giveaways! My favorite...because I need more stationery...haha. I have 150 pieces of stationery from Boatman Geller that I ordered a month ago...but that doesn't stop me from wanting more!

    Happy weekend...I'm also going to send a picture for Snapshot Saturday!

  2. You already know which is MY favorite! :) (And that I am a follower!)

    Something funny. Okay...

    Still, no idearThere's another one but it's naughty! LOL!

    I'll send you a crazy picture, too!


    PS - my verification word is cadvers - almost like cadavers. Creepy!

  3. Hey girl! Love the stationery!! To be honest...I have never had personalized monogrammed stationery of my own and would love some!! And if I don't win well then by golly Mrs. Molly, I will order some!! :D I love the third set and I want them in PINK! I am a follower and I'll post this on my sidebar...maybe! :P I want to win and if people see this they will enter too and then I might not, okay! I'll post it! LOL Have a great weekend!! :)

  4. I just found your blog from Perfectly Pleasant. What a great giveaway - I love stationery! In particular - I love the classic monogram, though we used similar embossed monogram as our wedding thank yous.

    I just became a follower and look forward to reading your future posts.

    As far as something funny, I'm terrible with jokes. But the five-year old I used to nanny for called me a couple of days ago with this joke:

    Q: What do people who live in Georgia (or the South) call bumble bees?
    A: Bubba bees.

    It was very funny when she said it so hopefully it will make someone smile :) Have a great day!

  5. i love stationary.

    I am a follower.

  6. I'm a follower because you're awesome!

    I love the embossed bordered cards -- but I'd get them for the SIL, she doesn't have the greatest cards that she sends out, I feel sad for her.

    My funny story -- last night I was early to The Cheesecake Factory so I went in the mall and I was called into Godiva (seriously the chocolate was calling my name) and got the strawberry/banana kabob drizzled in chocolate to take home. Did that stop me from getting the Chocolate Black Out cake (with extra whipped cream) at CCF to take home -- nope! I totally dug into the cake when I got home and plan to eat the kabob tonight when I get home. And I don't feel bad at all -- it is fruit after all!

    And I'm about to post about the giveaway over at my place!

  7. I left a little something for you on my blog! Happy Friday! :)

  8. Great giveaway! Please include me (and I was referred here by Perfectly Pleasant).

  9. I absolutely love stationary and am determined to win some of yours! I am already a follower :)

    I would choose the second picture - I love the classic nature of the monogram, but the hint of color on the border makes it fun.

    I don't know why, but Jack Handy from SNL always made me laugh. Here's an oldie but goodie:

    "Sometimes, when I lie in bed at night and look up at the stars, I think to myself, "Man! I really need to fix that roof.""

  10. Yay! Sign me up! I'm a follower and I'm posting!

  11. I am a follower!

    I would choose the classic monogram option, with maroon monogram and orange border (I will need thank-you notes for my Virgina Tech graduation in December!)

    I am going to post the contest and link on my blog!

  12. Love this!!

    You know I am a follower both here and twitter:)

    Something funny: Well, a few weeks ago before I went to bed I was drinking wine. I didn't finished it all. The next morning I woke up & was taking the glass to the kitchen, as I passed through the house my husband in a LOUD kinda SCARED voice said "WHAT ARE YOU DOING??!!" I said NOTHING, WHY?? (as I almost dropped MY FAV wine glass!} He then said "WHAT ARE YOU DRINKING DAPHNE??"I then busted out laughing & explained it was from last night.... It was 6:30AM when this took place....... we laughed and laughed:)

    I would choose the blue trimmed diamond monogrammed in brown! (the top pic!!)

  13. Hi there! I would LOVE to enter this giveaway. I absolutely love stationery and especially monogrammed stationery! But - something funny - when I got married in November, I wanted to use our monogram/initials. But...our initials are S + M! Not something I felt like would go over very well with most of our guests. So, no monograms. And now, I can only use MY monogram!

    I absolutely love the diamond style monogram cards. I am a follower, and I have posted about this giveaway on my sidebar. Thanks!

  14. Count me in! I'm a follower and am going to add a little something about your great giveaway on my sidebar. I love the third design.

    As for something funny:

    What's the cure for swine flu?

  20. I love the hot pink notable note. It would be perfect for Thank You Notes for my baby shower!

    Something funny? My anniversary was Tuesday, and my husband took me to the Melting Pot on Saturday to celebrate. We were eating the dessert, and I was in hog heaven. He noticed how much I was enjoying it, and I couldn't stop myself from saying that it was better than sex. He, without skipping a beat, says, "If I got THAT more, maybe you'd get THIS more."
    Ain't he funny? :)


How I love comments...thanks for stopping by and sharing what you are thinking. Cheers!
