Shout Outs

Linkin to You

A while back I had a little cookbook giveaway, and I asked people what their favorite quotes were.  I expected 15 entries or so.  Then Mrs. Ree re-tweeted my tweet and I got 1678 entries.  I loved it!  You see, I had a plan.  I wanted to see where you are, what you write, and photograph, etc.  I wanted to branch out in this blogging world. 

I am not making "New Year's Resolutions" per say, but I do plan on being a more social blogger.  I have been coming home, blogging and watching television or whatever else I need to do around the house.  I need to work on being more social. 

I am not a social person.  I like driving home knowing that I will be spending the time at home with McD and no one else.  I am not the social butterfly I could be.  I am not saying I am coming out of my cocoon or anything, but I am going to try.  :)  We started the year off just right for me to meet my goal.  We went to ring in the New Year with some friends and their family.  Some of their family brought friends, so it was a social event in my book.  :) 

So, the first (or second if you count the party we went to) step is going back to the 1678 comments on that one particular post, and linking to a few of you that were so kind to leave a comment or 20.  Yeah, there was a prize, and there will be again on Friday, January 8th, but it still made me feel pretty good.  I may just ask Ree to RT the contest again.  After all, it is her book that I will be giving away.

Sharyn has great photos, stories, ideas, organizational skills, etc.  You really need to check out her New Years Resolutions post.  WOW!  

Her favorite quote was:

We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails – Dolly Parton

Pretty good one if you ask me.

Babs has some great ideas, like A Word A Day Keeps the Doctor Away.  Cute huh!?  Did you know that Happiness is three pairs of fuzzy socks?  Cute, cute stuff here! 

Her favorite quote was:

"What fresh Hell is this?"  -Dorothy Parker

Delta Whiskey

What an interesting name!  This is not my first visit to her blog, I really enjoy reading here.  She has great photos, stories, and recipes.  Please check her out. 

Her favorite quote was:  (It is one of my absolute favorites!)

"I love you." ~My husband.

Sorry there are only 3 today, but I am supposed to be getting ready to leave.  We are headed to my grandparents house to celebrate Christmas.  You see, last year (hee hee) we had the Blizzard of the decade, or even the century in Oklahoma.  Some places got 14.1 inches of snow in one day, highways were closed, people were stuck on the sides of the roads, in their homes, at work, etc.  It was nuts!  So, we decided to wait until the roads were better to drive the 2 hours to granny's house.  We are safety oriented. Not really so much, but it sounded pretty good.  🙂

I didn't get photos of our Christmas Day celebration, but I will today.

Have a great weekend!

    Well, be safe on your trip – we got 14 last night, and expect another foot or so tonight, and another foot again by sunday night. 😀 But, hasn’t slowed anyone here down. Happy New Years!!

    though i don’t make resolutions i have dome something today that i rarely do. i went out to a movie. i don’t like crowds of people. i don’t like being out of my house. i like my spot on the couch. however, tonight i went to a movie with my husband son, and two friends. it was a wonderful time. i enjoyed the company and the movie was very entertaining. i think i’m going to be going to more movies in the future. i am, however going to make some nuts and bolts. the line-ups to the for snacks were vicious long and i prefer my own home made stuff to over-salty, hyper-expensive popcorn with real fake butter oozing all over it.
    i also plan on doing more exercise. i’m fat and don’t like it.
