In case you haven't heard, I have Julie Powell and Julia Child to thank for one year of blogging bliss and if I'd never watched the movie I don't think I'd be here today with you, my blogging pals, and to thank you for laughing, crying, and sighing over my blog posts I began a Giveaway Contest in honor of my January 18th blogoversary.

  1. "I could write a blog. I have thoughts."

    LOVE that movie! And I'm a google follower of you.

    I actually started blogging a few years ago after a horrible breakup with my boyfriend (who happens to be the same one I live with now!). I had so many sob stories, and hilarious stories, one of my best friends told me I should blog about it all. So I did.

  2. This was a great movie! We watched it as a family and all of us loved it!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  3. That was a fun movie! It sure doesn't seem like it's been a year since I went to see it! Lots of love, Holly and mom

  4. Love the movie and momma wants the book
    Benny & Lily

  5. Thanks for popping up over at The Other Winnie Cooper! Thanks for liking us on Facebook too.

    Loved the Julie and Julia book and the movie! I have had a lifelong dream to be a writer. It was very fun to see that same dream come true for someone as endearing as Julie Powell.

    Loved looking around your site and reading about Daisy, Henry and Buster!


  6. Hi April,

    Just wanted you to know that the dachshund sign came tody. Beleive me I understand and no need to worry about the giftee. She doesn't even know about it. It's gonna be their housewarming gift and the house won't be ready until March.
    She has 3 red dachshunds and she will love. They have a blog too but they don't blog much anymore.

    I just added Mona's blog as a follower. Hope that's Ok. We'll be back. Come over and see us some time.


  7. Mommy and Daddy are "downsizing" to a retirement community in our same town, Taunton MA. Once they do this Mommy can retire and Daddy can cut back on your. Their nephew goes to school at Saint Anselm College up your way. I've been to New Hampshire up to the lake region. I like it. I peed in Winnipesaukee

  8. I was inspired to blog by Jen Lancaster. A friend recommended her books to me, and when I read the first one, I didn't even realize her website was a blog. I was beyond clueless. Since I read her book on my kindle, I was curious as to what she looked like. When I googled her name, I discovered her blog...and loved it. I always wanted to write (When I was in my 20's I even wrote 80 pages of a novel that I abandoned), so I figured trying to blog was a great way to see if I liked to or could write.... I am so glad I started!


Woof! Meow! Meow! Thanks for leaving a comment!
