Many people de-lurked yesterday and not only had some great ideas for the photo, but words of encouragement. With my people pleasing southern belle mentality and background in marketing and public relations, it would be easy for me to glitz up my site through my Photoshop skills (although a bit limited) or more "creative" writing. But, I have chosen to keep it clean and honor Him through my writing. I want it to be fun, enjoyable, and honest and I think that can be accomplished without trying to be too sassy (even though I can be sassy, just ask Big Buckaroo).
Pam (aka mappersnapper) and Betty in OK comment and email with me often, pretty much daily. I appreciate their support and encouragement in all aspects of my life, not just blogging. I will meet these women, hopefully some time this year! Dee at Red Dirt Ramblings is also around here alot and I am in awe of her beautiful flowers and gardening skills. Do you have time to come help with my yard?
My de-lurkers, WELCOME, and thanks for the nice words and contest entries:
Elizabath S. in Mid- Michigan- cute title, stay warm!!!
Ren in Fl- thanks for appreciating that I am keeping it clean. It is cold here, do you have any extra rooms?
Renee in Seattle- I think I lost most of my wittiness with the placenta.
Liz G. - Do you know Little Buckaroo? Perfect description of something he would actually say!
Joann - Thanks for the encouragement to keep on going
Sharon- When are you getting a blog? As a graphic designer, it would be awesome I am sure. Please excuse my pitiful attempts at design.
Jill in MN - o.k. I LOVE the Battle of Little Buckaroo, too cute! Thanks for taking the time to nominate me for the "Bloggie that Wasn't"
A Glance at My World - this is one very talented college student, I wish that I had been as together as she is at her age. Not only does she make FABULOUS things, but is a beautiful young lady. FYI-The photo was taken here at our Park by one of Park employees.
Windwmn- thanks for coming by!!!! Little Man, Big Job was one of Big Buckaroo's favorites
A Blessed Crazy Life- thanks for commenting. Her site is new, everyone go visit.
And, to my friend Lori who finally delurked, yes, I would just rather talk to you on the phone too!
Now, could Pioneer Woman, Boo Mama or any of those other great blog women comment to everyone that commented on one of their contests?
and the winner of nothing of any monetary value....

My heart is so full but

Could you spare some hardtack
Or sow belly that's hot?
Big Buckaroo was impressed with her Civil War knowledge and creativeness. Great job and hopefully next time I will actually give away a prize!
