Llama Face!

Queenie Jeannie. What can I say? She is amazing and I feel just terrible that I am not blogging about this until now.

Weeks ago, I received a cute little box in the mail.

"Curious." I thought to myself. Yes, I really did.

"Curiouser & curiouser." I said to myself with a British accent. (Ok, not really)

Isn't that beautiful? She made it herself, I've never seen anything like it. And of course I bawled.


But what else is new right? So thank you thank you thank you Big sis!

On another note, remember this post? The one where I admit that I am a recycling virgin? The one where I express my fear of recycling? Well Blue Violet has cured my recycling phobia! I won 4 portable recycling bins from her giveaways!

Now you can use these for barbeque's because they are portable, they pop up, and when you're done, you can just throw the whole thing away.

However....I am using the recycling container in my house! That's right Nana! No more old magazines for you, they are goin in my very own green mean recycling machine.

That was stupid. Sorry.

I've also been winning over at Broken Teepee. I'm tellin ya, entering giveaways is addicting! Here are my most recent wins:

Okay, I won the first season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey and now I am hooked! Seriously. Anybody else watch this show?

I'm not the only one that benefits if I win a contest. I think the cats get more excited than I do, they always take over the boxes. Doesn't matter what size of box, Boomhower will try to squeeze his fat butt in it!

Stupid Kittays.

If ya wanna test your luck, here are some more giveaways happening RIGHT. NOW.

At A Nut In A Nutshell:
Enstrom's Toffee
The Brag Company Bra Bag and Panty Pak
UgLee Pen 3-Pack

That was so sweet of Queenie Jeannie to make that for you!!! I love it!!! I'm quite addicted to the Housewives series myself!

I can't believe those Fling Bins arrived already! Dang!

Julia said...

Can you send me you address so I can hit you up for a review? Thanks!!!

Suzi said...

Love the memory box of the pups. That was very sweet and it is very special.

Wait til you have kids....they like the boxes way more than the toys that came in it. My kids are 6, 7, & 8 and still like the boxes more. I have resolved to never buy them another toy. I think I will just go to the local office supply store and buy.....boxes.

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Awwwwww! That memory box thingy Queenie Jeanie made is pure genius! How very cool and how very thoughtful!

And look at you on a winning streak! WooHoo!! :)

firstly, i'm so sorry about your furry baby. i was on jeannie's blog today because we're part of the same card swap and everyone is sending her happy going to italy cards (dont' tell her, it's a surprise!) and she showed the box and talked about her lil sis - but you're not related? it's friday and i've had a crap day (and too many cosmos...)

Queenie Jeannie said...

Hey Lil Sis! Thanks for the bloggy lovin. I'm just glad you liked it and I wanted you to have a keepsake of your precious boys. I see the gay kitties are with you, lol! Kinda jealous about that as I haven't had a kitty of my own in quite some time. It's HIGH on the priority list after we secure a house let me tell ya!!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE all the Housewives and haven't seen ANY in a week. Our cable, therefore ALL tv was shut off last Friday. And I've been so busy getting ready for our garage sale that I haven't watched online either. I'm dying!!!

Ooops! I read your comments and now I'm in on the surprise. My bad!!! La, la, la.....OK, I've forgotten now.

AmyLK said...

the memory book is BEAUTIFUL! And congrats on winning. Now if you win something I have put in for too, I'll be upset! lol

Stephanie Faris said...

That was so sweet of her!!!!! I remember after my first dog died, the vet sent a sympathy card with "The Rainbow Bridge" on it. I cried and saved the card forever. It's things like that that really help us through hard times.

Jason, as himself said...

Man. You are lucky and loved!

Alexis AKA MOM said...

That is the sweetest thing ever! You've touched so many and have some great bloggy friends!!!!

Yup I keep seeing you ever where wining ... said in a not so much whining voice :) hehe

Debbie said...

That little book is the cutest and sweetest thing I've seen in a long time. No wonder you cried.

Justine said...

Ha! I'll be much more impressed when I actually see some recycling stuff IN your disposable bins! I think you just have it there for looks.
