Bloggy Love!

Ooh, I am SO excited! I just found out that I won a super fabulous giveaway for a Boatman Geller melamine plate in my choice of design! I chose the Madison design with a classic monogram in the center. If you are wondering where I entered this giveaway, let me tell you! I have a wonderful blog friend, Bronco Mom over at Powder Puffs n Pearls, whom I "met" a few months back. She was just starting her blog and she asked me for some advice {not that I had anything useful!} on blogging. I started following her right away and since then, she has become quite the blogger! Bronco Mom recently had her blog made over by The Design Girl and it looks tres chic!

I am very excited and honored to have won her giveaway for the plate. I know Bronco Mom has plans for future giveaways soon, so please go visit her and welcome her to the blog world! She is wonderful and she also has an amazing recipe for crockpot Brunswick Stew that she was kind enough to share with me and I will be trying it out this weekend!

Thanks again Bronco Mom!
