Blog Funny Business

Yeah, it's time to take care of some business around here.  

Will it be funny?

I hope so.

Over the last several months, I've had the good fortune of winning a couple of blog give-aways.  As to why I didn't take my winning streak to Vegas, well, I'd guess I'd have to like to gamble.

AnyHorten_Hears_a_Who,  over at The Constant Complainer,  my lucky number got me an American Express Gift Card.  It came to me wrapped up in this shirt:

Doesn't everyone have roses coming out of their head? 
Yes, I'm looking at the sun and squinting!

But wait.  There's more:

Evil Twin prefers this side of me.

If you haven't checked out The Constant Complainer, please do.   The rants can lead to some lively discussions.

Next, my number came up over at Decisionally Challenged.  That's right.  Georgie, an Okie from Muskogee,  presented me with a promotion code for a free ammunition.

No, that's not right.

It was 8x8 digital photo album from Seehere.com.  It took me awhile to put the album together but I finally did and here it is:

 That's one of my favorite shots.  
Hubby took it on our whale watching cruise.

Thank you, Georgie, who may not really be from Muskogee, but she is from Oklahoma, and I'm happy she's keeps most of the snow north of the Red River.

Check out her blog.  Send her chocolate.  She has teenagers. 

Finally, I received blog bling from that sweetheart Collette over at My Babcia's Babushka.  She gave me this "Feels Like Home" award:

I'm glad she feels at home over here.  I hope she doesn't mind doing a few chores while she's here.

Collette not only writes a great blog but she is an awesome follower. Her witty comments are full of love and support and her HUGS can't be missed.

As for passing this on, I have selected the following welcoming bloggers:

Ziva's Inferno - Free cookies for all
MrsBlogAlot.com  - She's my kind of crazy.
Momma Mia, Mea Culpa  -   She's trying to do things differently and is brave enough to write about it.
Me-Me at Mad, Mad Margo - Another great writer and follower with a fun weekly caption contest.

Have a great week!

Photo credits:  Hubby took the photos of me.  Exploit them.  I'll be flattered.  No, wait.

meleah rebeccah said...

Wooo Hoooo! Congrats on all your "KICK ASS" winnings!

Thanks for passing along the love!

Homey Marv said...

Nice award, Home Girl! (wink) You look fabulous in the T-Shirt and hat. You look like a TALL Texas gal - are you?

Ziva said...

Congratulations on your fantastic winnings! And that's an awesome t-shirt, you're so lucky.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for passing the "Feels Like Home" award on to me! It makes me feel like baking a ton of cookies, just for you. Chocolate chip okay?

ReformingGeek said...

@Laura - Thanks! You're such a Sweetie!

@mama-face - Thanks. You're turnin' into a re-al good Texan now aren't ya?

@Scarlett - Thanks.

@meleah - Thanks. Enjoy!

@Homey Marv - Thanks. Ah, the arms are deceiving. Nope. A long, tall, Texas I isn't. My momma got the height. She thinks I'm short at 5'5".

@Ziva - Thanks. Enjoy! Yes, please. Chocolate chip would be awesome! Yum-Yum.

Deb said...

Lookin' wicked shahp in that t-shirt, Reffie! Add a belt and you'd be ready to go to a bean suppah next Saturday. You do have bean suppers down there in TX, right?

Bee said...

The shirt fits you like a glove! Congrats, RG!

ReformingGeek said...

@Deb - Thanks. I do need a belt to wear it to the next pot luck.

@Bee - Thanks!

I thought the ammunition prize was cool. Not that I have a gun, but that's an unusual prize for sure. Anyway, you deserve all that and more. You have one of the friendliest blogs on the planet. Must be that southern charm...

honeypiehorse said...

You go girl!

ReformingGeek said...

@Mike - Why thank you, Mike! You're such a sweetheart. I'm letting Evil Twin play with the ammunition.

@honeypie - Thanks!

Anonymous said...

It was funny. And "yay!" for you!

Ed said...

Gosh...and I only won the lotto...

Leeuna said...

Wow, congrats Reffie. You really racked up with the blog swag. Love the cowboy hat, and the T-shirt is way cool. You deserve all those great things and more. Your blog rocks and so do you.

ReformingGeek said...

@Random Chick - Thanks!

@VE - Gee, that's too bad.

@Leeuna - Thank you, Fellow Southerner, for the most kind words.

MrsBlogAlot said...

No Way!! No Way! Thank you!!!!! And why didn't my blogger update you? WTH? I want my money back!...oh right, I don't pay...

Sounds like it's time to play the lottery. And I love you with roses in your head btw xoxoxM

MrsBlogAlot said...

Sure, now it works.

ReformingGeek said...

@MrsBlogalot - Thanks! I think she (Blogger) suffers from PMS.....OFTEN!

Enjoy your bling.

United Studies said...

It must be a great time for winning things...I recently won a book. Yay! I still have to get yours out in the mail..

Anything Fits A Naked Man said...

Congrats! And, personally, I LOVE the roses growing out of your head!!

Skye said...

Congrats on all your winnings Reffie!

ReformingGeek said...

@Jacki - One can never have too many books!

@Anything - Thanks. Those roses are even bigger now!

@Skye - Thanks! Miss you.

Ivy said...

How cool! I never win anything. I could seriously buy those "1 in 5 wins" drinks and stuff all day, never win. Hence, why I always forget to buy a lottery ticket. Pointless.

And what cool prizes! I'm with evil twin! That makes the whole shirt!

Thanks for the links. I'm checking then out now.

Lots of love RG!

Congrats on the blog bling. I won a whale picture, similar to the shot your hubby took, on a family whaling trip off Cape Cod. That didn't come off right. Sounds like I have a whale family (or a whale of a family). Yes, I'm a couch potato, but I ain't got that much blubber.

ReformingGeek said...

@Ivy - Evil Twin says thanks.

I don't play the lottery either. I probably should occasionally.

@Lauren - Thanks. Um..whale family. Oh my.

Marissa said...

Congrats! I, too, like the Constant Complainer blog. So, whatcha gonna get with that gift card?

Mike said...

I always knew that you were a winner! :)
