Thank You Notes During the NFL Draft

        In case you didn’t know, apparently my husband holds an important position with the NFL.  He is monitoring the draft on television.

True confession:  I am too. I enjoy watching it because I think these young men have worked hard and are now being rewarded.  My favorite part though is watching their parents- especially their mothers.

        So, I am taking this opportunity to write some very special thank you notes.


        I was fortunate enough to win a giveaway for this beautiful pewter napkin holder and napkins in my favorite colors (blue and white) from Kat at Low Tide High Style. Isn’t that a great name for a blog?


When I first visited her blog and read this line in her header, I thought wow…

Thank you Kat!

        I recently received this gracious recognition from Marguerite at Cajun Delights.


        I don’t know where to start in singing Marguerite’s praises. As a blogger (and in real life I’m sure), she is the most generous, gracious, fun loving, best cooking lady with the best recipes , who lives in the great state of Louisiana, where I sometimes think I belong.

Note:  I do have a relative on my father’s side of the family named Free Love ,who was from Louisiana. So as my father says:

I came by it honest.

        I just wish Marguerite would let me follow her around , going to everything she goes to and eating and drinking everything she does.

        Thank you Marguerite! As you always say,

Let the good times roll, cher!

        And now to all of you who have ever visited my crazy blog. 

        I am amazed each day by all of you.  Yes, you.

        Thank you

Laura, you are so sweet to post this and I'm glad the napkin holder went to such a good home! And congratulations on your blog award, you are very deserving! Good luck with your draft picks! ;)

Congrats on the goodies, Laura! Glad you're using your "free time" wisely. And I'm really glad to know others suffer from the same ailments I do when it comes to the garage. I do everything on Blogger, but I take those "altered" photos to Picnik. It's so much fun AND user friendly for all of us technically challenged!
big hugs,

Congrats to you dear Laura! I will have to check these girls out.
I loved the post on green. Love that color too. But what I really loved was getting that peek into your stunning home. LOVE IT!!!
I'll be gone for a few days visiting a daughter out of state, so I will miss your great posts. I will catch up when I get home. I hate missing your's like reading the newspaper a week late.

I watched it and also had it streaming live on my computer while I twittered about it like I know all things pro football. So you saw Drew!! xoxo

Congratulations, Laura.

I heard about the Rams quarterback pick this morning, on STL radio. The young man, from Oklahoma, was interviewed and I was impressed. I hope this is the beginning of a turn around for the Rams.

Lisa said...

Congrats on the shout out and your sweet goodies! I love coming by here to get my chuckle for the day.:)
PS Do I like my Kindle? Yes and No. Yes for those books that you'll read once and forget about. No for the ones you carry around, dogear and quote.
PSS It was a gift.

Well Laura, I am at the beach and haven't got to see any of the draft! Love your blog and always enjoy seeing what you have been up to:) Hey, Low Tide High Style looks like a blog I would enjoy! Have a blessed day my friend!

Marguerite said...

Thanks so much for the great shout out, cher! You could follow me around anytime! And I just knew that somehow, you just had to have Louisiana ancestors. Birds of a feather.... Have a wonderful weekend, mon amie!

Hey Laura ~~~~~ congrats! I want to follow Marguerite too but I'm not sure I have enough energy! Ha!
We love the NFL draft too!

Nola said...

Well, I guess our husbands must be coworkers, because the draft can't take place without him. If he doesn't work for them, then he must work for Sam Bradford! Aren't men funny?

Hey Miss Laura,

I'm so glad you stopped by to visit me, so I could find you. You have such a lovely blog, and it looks like we have at least two things in common - a love of Nell Hill's and deer antlers on the wall courtesy of the hubby!

I'll be back to visit again often!
