I'm a BFF! Really?!

Today is a special day! A couple of weeks ago Shell emailed me and asked if I would be a BFF(Blog Friend Feature) on her blog. I was so excited extremely nervous! My response was, "Shut up"! I really could not believe it! I was flattered that she would think of me and want to share my post with others. Her blog is one of my absolute faves. I've only 'known' her for a short time, but I know she's someone I would want to be friends with IRL. She's sweet and honest, and I love her approach to blogging. So thank you, thank you, thank you, Shell!!

If you're stopping by for the first time you can learn more about me HERE, and you can read some of my favorite posts HERE. When I was looking through my posts yesterday I realized how many of my faves are PYHO posts. Thanks for having such an awesome meme, Shell. It truly is my free weekly therapy!

If you've dropped by from the BFF post, Thank you!
I really cannot wait to meet you!

On a side note:
Since my traditional post is really on Shell's site
 I thought I would have some fun here, so...
I'm linking up to Holly for Tickled Pink and Heather for Fabulous Friday!
Well, obviously I'm Tickled Pink over my BFF post, and
I had a great run at the grocery store yesterday.
I'm Tickled Pink that I got everything in this pic for $26!
I saved $57 and spent only $26.
Not bad considering I got 6 boxes of tampons!!
(glamorous, right?)
Those alone would have cost me over $30 w/o coupons!

I'm also Tickled Pink about this Etsy Shop I found.
The boys got me a Kindle for my birthday a few weeks ago.
Best present EVER!
I guess you could say I was Tickled Pink about that too!
(i heart you, kindle)

I was looking around last night online
and found these adorable handmade kindle covers.
You have to check them out!
I so need really really want one of these!

Elizabeth David Designs

Aren't they adorable?

I’m Tickled Pink at 504 Main

Happy Friday Everyone!

So you really like the kindle? I imagine I would miss holding a book and using a book marker... which always gets lost when the kids get a hold of my book.

Does is save money in the long run over purchasing books?

I've been thinking about getting a kindle but I love books. Not sure I'd be happy with it.

Stopping over from BFF - I'm following now and am off to read more of your posts!

Awesome b-day present! I'm turning 30 in less than a month. Pretty sure my present is the dog clipper I already bought so I can groom our own dog.


No really.

I don't have a Kindle yet and am still on the fence but I may just have to take the plunge for those cute covers alone ;)

So much going on over here that I have missed by taking a little break! Congrats on your BFF status!

I got my hubby a Kindle in February...still in the box - that should be illegal - I am about to hijack it for myself! And get me a cute cover too!

Thanks for linking to Tickled Pink a couple weeks ago...I took a little (unexpected break) but I am back!
