"I'm Writing from BlogHer..."

It pays to make comments on blogs.

A couple of weeks ago, while reading BlogHer, I noticed a sweepstakes for Fage, a natural Greek yogurt. It just so happened that I also had been looking at some recipes that called for Greek yogurt. I have never tried Greek yogurt and have looked for it in my local grocery stores. No luck - none of the stores in this town sells this type of yogurt. So this sweepstakes caught my eye. All the BlogHer Fage Yogurt sweepstakes required was for readers to make a comment and once a day from April 7 through May 6, a random commenter would win a case of Fage Yogurt. A couple of days after making a comment, I received an email saying, "I'm writing from BlogHer to inform you that you have been selected at random as one of our daily winners for the Dive into FAGE TOTAL daily sweepstakes! " Guess what arrived today?

After sampling Classic with honey and Classic with strawberries, my husband and I think it is rather yummy! Thanks, Fage and BlogHer for your generosity! Now off to find some recipes to use the plain Classic yogurts. :)

What Happened?!?

I thought spring had sprung. Flowers are blooming.



Easter is this week.
Spring break is next week.

But in a matter of a few days, Mother Nature had another idea... FREEZE WARNING in effect for tonight Brrrr! Hopefully, this will be the last cold snap.

I am looking forward to next week. My husband is taking next week off, too. We have some great plans.
A short trip to Atlanta (Please warm up before the ballgame. I froze at the early spring Braves game last year.)

Yard work. My husband is going to enlarge a flower bed for me. I also hope to find some time for this

Sewing Update: I finished the latest wall hanging. I wish it was just a bit larger.
Spring Quilt

I completed another Tag Along Tote. I did enlarge it a bit in order to get everything I carry with me in it.
