A Winner and an Apology!!

Hello my dear friends! I hope that you had a wonderful beginning to the week!!

I have to say that mine was a bit interesting and irritating!

First let me apologize for the crazy email that went out to you, if you received one from me about buying a computer and it looks like something that I would NOT write,
please delete it!
I hope that I have fixed it on my end and I am very sorry if I caused any disruption in your computer.

That was the irritating part.

The interesting part was this.....



SNOW, SNOW and MORE SNOW!!!!
(I promise the photos are untouched :) )

It was like we were in our own little snow globe! Seriously! I live in the "Lake Effect" area in Michigan and we got about 1 foot of snow today, it looked like that all day! Odd thing is about 2 miles away from the lake it was sunny all day and they didn't get any snow!

Michigan I tell ya!

It did look really pretty when I wasn't driving in it!


Oh,

I also have to tell you that my hubby got a thrill reading all your comments!!
He must have taken some of them as a challenge to come up with some more creative ways to spell things.

So, yesterday morning I woke up to this...


Don't worry, it is a term of endearment! :)

I will say that it is cheating though!

Ok,

Now for you have been waiting for!

I really enjoyed reading all of your wishes and my wish for you is that you get what you are wishing for!
You are all so wonderful, I truly, truly mean that!!


The winner of the $35 gift certificate for CSN is


Erin from Like Grandmas

Congrats and Merry Christmas and happy shopping to you!!


Today is also a very special day for me.

We will be celebrating this little one's

5th birthday!!!



He is so precious to me and his birth was full of celebration

and

heart ache....... literally.......

Your pictures make me long for a white Christmas...something we almost never get! We have plenty of cold, just no snow!

I hope your son had a wonderful birthday!!! And congratulations to Erin!

Hope your son had a great Birthday! Love all the snow pictures. We used to get Lake effect snow, but from Lake Erie. Now I live a lot farther south and we don't get a lot of snow.

I'm so pleased that you sorted out your computer hiccups. Please don't worry - you're by no means the first person I've got those emails from and you won't be the last either!

A foot of snow?! Wow! I don't think we've EVER had a foot of snow!!

Congratulations to lovely Erin.

I just discovered your blog (from Parisienne Farmgirl) and had to smile as I read an older post, when I saw your pic of Glen Lake! I grew up in Battle Creek & now live in Ohio. We have boated on Glen many times. love your blog & your decorating! hugs, Cathy

Happy Birthday little guy! :) Hope you all had a fun time celebrating!

High Street Cottage said...

Hi Michelle, thank you so much for the lovely comment on my tea tin. And for adding me to your love blogs. I'm going to make a list tonight and add yours too, hugs tami, ps, stay warm! Love the snow!

The Stylish House said...

Michelle,
From one mom to another please give that cutie pie birthday boy an extra hug from me!
I've been watching the news and saw your side of the state was getting hammered with snow. My daughter went to GVS so I know you get some big storms off the lake. It's been flaking on and off this afternoon, but hasn't amounted to anything much. Keep warm and drive safe.
Hugs, Cathy
