I just posted about winning my MaryKay stuff from Michelle.
But, I totally spaced this cool stuff that Rita brought over because I won her 80's music raffle. It has been sitting on my piano, and until I got on a cleaning kick during the past few days, I had forgotten about it. (I bet you have all been wondering where I have been: getting reaquainted with the joy of a clean house and car, and I have to give the credit for that to Cynthia)
Yeah, you heard it right, I guessed ONE 80's song title before the millions of others of Rita's readers. And by some miracle, I won the raffle. Thanks to Nicholas for drawing my name.
And the song I knew?...here's a good blast to the past: King for a Day by the Thompson Twins. C'mon, you know you want to sing it....A king for just one day...I would give it all away!
I told you that we were on a winning streak. Anyhow, I love the stationary stuff Rita. A woman can never have enough cards, post its, or journals. Thank you Rita! If everyone doesn't love you already, they should. And my favorite thing in the gift bag: a silver bookmark with Rita's favorite quote:
It is never too later to be what you might have been. ~ George EliotI met Rita when Abigail and Ryan were in the same kindergarten class. Ryan and Abigail have been friends for three years. Wow, time does fly. I am so glad to have Rita as my friend. Not only is she a great blogger, but she is a wonderful mother and a mean bowler. Everyone loves Rita! And, as promised I will not post a picture of her butt from when we went bowling last week. And I am not saying that it doesn't look good, not that I was checking her out. he he I am just obliging Rita's request. Here is the best picture I got of you Rita....so typical of what you do best: mothering.
And in honor of the winning occasion:
