OK, I've got like 4 or 3 things now..

..so here's a mixed bag of nuts...

From Wikipedia..

  • The phrase "mixed nuts" is also used to indicate a mixture of disparate elements other than nuts, as in the following blog...(they didn't really say that last part in Wikipedia)
  • ...which brings to mind yet another question....

    What Does Wiki Stand For In WikiPedia?

    * the word "wiki" is Hawaiian based which means quick. Got it.
That reminds me..my Mother used to like Bridge mix..she didn't pay bridge, but she liked Bridge mix. Daddy was all about the cashews..with Mr. B it's almonds..

Anyway, tonight's blog is just that..it's tonight..it's a blog..and it's 'mixed nuts"



Just look at this beauty..just look..'cos I WON IT!

Well I did :-)

From Melinda of ...

Go see her beautiful and sooo creative quilts..but don't enter the contest because.....heeheehee....I WON !!


Thank you so veeeeery much. I've always LOVED quilts and have such regard for quilters (and the patience..and the good eyes..and their TIME..) but knew I didn't have any of the requirements...patience, eyes, time..and I don't do math, so to actually tackle one of these masterpieces myself, well, it's not going to happen.

..thought I'd be Quiltless in Utah..hey..that's a great movie title! Yeah..and Meg Ryan could totally play me! Or maybe Aunt Bea...

Melinda, please know this quilt will be loved and cared for and kept in my heart for always :-)

So, then there's the second thing...I'm having a Pampered Chef party this Saturday..and I know, I know, most of you won't be in the neighborhood...butI'm serving lunch! And, you can meet the incredible Mr. B...??

{seriously, if you ARE going to be in the Sandy area, email me for directions}

OK, but..did you know you can order on-line and it will count towards my party? AND, they will send it to you?

Shut up!

Now, even better....cookware is an awesome 20% off :-) Yeah, who loves ya baby..

Go to this link and look at the yummy stuff..and if you're like me, I usually can get only one piece at a time, so this would be a great time to get the 20% off and not have to go to some one's lame party from work just because you need one pizza stone...am I right??...

..uh..except the girls I invited from my work..yeah..you will still need to come to my lame party..

Just go here and enter my name (Colleen Blake) as the host(ess) and you'll be all set..

And..thanks :-)

So, now #C...what was it....think..think..think...

OH! I'm going to have a supper-dupper-really-neat-o giveaway soon...this is an awesome offering (not hand made, but...)

..so stay tuned for a chance to win....whatever.....

Sweet dreams, thank you all for the healing thoughts, prayers and blessings. Thanks Melinda for making me squeal like a little girl at work when I found out I won the quilt..

..and thank the good Lord it's almost Friday !!

Congratulations! That is the only way I'll get a quilt, I am like you , haven't got the Maths or the patience. I would love to come to your dumb party but until they invent cyber travel I won't be able to make it.

Karen said...

I wish I lived in your area and could come to your Pampered Chef party...just so I could meet you! I'm going to a "Lia Sophia" party on Friday night. I hope they have something I can afford to buy.
