I'm a Winner...Twice!

I am so excited. On Friday and Saturday I received two wonderful surprises. On Friday Megan over at half pint house contacted me to say that I had won a year subscription to Gods World News Magazine. I was so excited. I've been tossing around the idea of a subscription a few times now, but just haven't done it. Now I'll get a free one and see if my girls like it. Thanks Megan...go check out her blog. Then on Saturday after a crazy day...soccer games (in the rain), then grocery shopping with very little money (that in itself was stressful enough...I had to make sure I added everything on the calculator), I came home to an e-mail from Emily at DesignHer Momma, telling me I'd won a $20 dollar Starbucks card. Is that cool or what. And I could have used it at that moment (C: Thanks Emily. I will think of you when I buy my first drink. Check out her blog too! Actually she said that if I didn't win the aprons I've been trying so hard to win, I could just drown my sorrows in a starbucks drink because I won her drawing. Now was that a great way to announce it or what!! Tomorrow hubby and I leave for 3 days to Redding, CA for a conference at Bethel Church. Can't wait, but at the same time, we're so close to our house being done that it's hard to leave. Only a few things left to do. It's very likely that we'll be in a week or so before Thanksgiving. I've been scrambling today to clean house, do laundry, and get the girls school all put together. One of our young adult gals is going to be staying with them. They'll miss us, but they'll have a blast. When we get back I'll post some pictures of the countertops, and sinks at the house. I've been perusing the Sears website at Ranges, Microwaves and dishwashers. I think I've found ones that I like. We'll probably purchase them when we get back. Another great friend stopped by today to bring me some plum jam and a vegetable spread that she had recently canned. Have you ever had plum jam? I haven't and it is soooo good. I think I'm hooked. But then I absolutely love plums. With Joy UNquenchable,


  1. Congratulations on your prizes!

    I love plum jam. I make some every year.


  2. Congrats on your winnings! We used to get God's World and really enjoyed it.
    And what's better than Starbucks? FREE Starbucks!! Congrats and enjoy!

  3. Hey, I hope you and your hubby had a nice time. My best friend live in Redding. I think she actually lives in Milville, but it is a suburb of Redding. I have visited her a few times and it is beautiful up there.
