Only 3 Away!

My goodness, girls! I wake up this morning and find that I'm only 3 views away from 15,000. I need to be thinking about some blog candy, huh? I'm so not sure what I'm going to be giving away but you know me...it will be great! Here is how you are going to get the blog candy this time...by signing my guestbook by midnight tonight...Friday 5/4. If you already have...you are in the running for the candy. If not...go to the bottom of my blog and sign the guestbook. If you can't for some reason please let me know and I'll do it for you! I'll post the winner and the loot sometime tomorrow.

Onto something I was so excited about yesterday. Ready for the background story? Okay, I had been ready on a couple of my Yahoo groups and on some blogs about some fantastic designer paper (at a fantastic price $13.59) that Costco had for sale. So, since I happened to be in Yakima yesterday and needed to stop at Costco I checked to see if they had it and indeed they did! Woohoo! it is 3 sheets of 120 unique designs from Magnolia and Wild Asparagus. Can you imagine? 360 sheets of designer paper for $13.59!!!! Wanna see it? Isn't it just fantastic?

Today I'm running to Yakima again as we are adding a new member to our family. Todd and I have been looking for a small(er) dog to join our family for a couple of weeks now and it just hasn't been working out so just Wednesday night we decided to just let it go for now. Well, last night I got an e-mail from a place that I had put an application in at to adopt a specific dog but someone had already contacted them. The lady told me if it didn't work out for some reason she would let me know and that is what the e-mail was for. The other family didn't work out and they think we are a great fit for Mitzy. So, I'm off to meet Mitzy and, hopefully, bring her home! She has a horrible story and I'm just so excited that we can make a safe and loving home for her! I will post pictures tomorrow of her homecoming. I hope!

I'm also thrilled that today is Friday because....Todd comes home today!!!! Yay! Only two weeks from today I won't have to say that anymore as he will be home with us again, graduated from the academy. Okay, he won't be home because Todd and I will be going on a mini vacation for a few days but you know what I mean! ;0)

Have a fantastic Friday everyone!

Oh, I've been coveting this table since I first saw it. I don't belong to Cosco, boo-hoo. Pick me! :)

Wow! That is a great deal. Is it nice quality paper? What's the chance of having you pick-up some for us none Costcoers (is that word allowed-lol) of course, I'm not sure how much shipping would add, but it would still be a great deal :)
Blessings,
Beth
P.S.-Love the baby quilt!!!

Congrats of 15K!! Great blog. I'm anxious to see the loot. I wish we had a Costco around here. There isn't a single one in the whole state of WI. : (

I went to Costco to get that paper pack and they had zip! They told me the system said is was being discontinued but stores in MI had them. I won't drive an hour for it though- enjoy it.

Best of luck with Mitzy. She looks very sweet and her story is very sad. I have had 3 rescue dogs and they have all been the most wonderful companions!

You and I would so get along. All my furry children were abandoned or abused or worse. I too am looking for a companion for my Marley who has become so clingy since Clancy left us last fall, but I had to wait until after the wedding and get some other things done first. Now hubby tells me we need a new riding mower. I was planning on a trip to the shelter tomorrow-I need to have many ways to be in many places at one time. Time will tell.
