Monday Mania of Course

Nothing like Mondays.  Just the word wears me down, I think!  Nah, not really.  My sincere apologies for having been awol over the weekend; I can't even begin to list all that was keeping me from this blog! But...we're baaack!  And with a phew (haha) things to cover...

First of all, thank you to all for your comments and your visits; I truly appreciate you all!  And welcome, new followers!  You've joined us at a great time, I think.  Although the next few weeks will be extremely hectic, with the holidays keeping us all busy (and I have school, too!), there will be some really great reasons to take a break from the madness and enjoy a blog post or two...or many.'s a surprise, but there is going to be a special blog hop this coming week, especially for the holidays! In case you're a new reader and not familiar with blog hops, it's where a bunch of blogs all connect together, with a listing contained in each of all the other blogs.  You can visit as few or as many as you like from that list.  It's loads of fun, there are so many different kinds of blogs out there, with information, entertainment, whatever suits your fancy.  This blog hop will be all pet-related blogs, with a special twist.  

The holiday blog hop has a special theme - giveaways!  Each blog on the list will be offering a prize (or more), and it will require only something simple to enter (maybe becoming a follower, or commenting, etc).  'Tis the season of giving...and our blogs will be giving!!  Presents before the holidays even hit!! Between getting something really great for yourself (or pets), or for a fantastic gift for someone else, this is a fun time you won't want to miss.  

CindyLu has picked out what she wants to offer for our giveaway...and absolutely can't wait to show you. But you'll have to wait until Wednesday night.  No peaking.   

And finally, I have been remiss on something that's really totally exciting.  Don't ask me how I managed it, but anyone who knows me personally wouldn't be surprised I suppose.  A short while back, I entered a contest On PBU's blog, Pet Blogs United - just had to make a comment about what you would choose.  I never gave it a second thought - I never win anything (yeah, I'm one of those people) so it's not like I was checking on the results.   Still...I missed the post, I even missed the email sent to me!  D'uh!!
Check these out!!
Here's the exciting news:  I won!  I won!!  CindyLu will be getting a spankin' new, fancy-dancy, pretty for a princess collar!!  She and I were both dancing!!  It's handmade by Doggie Stylish, and we're absolutely thrilled and honored.  You'll be seeing her in it when we get it, I promise.  She's going to be excited to show it off, I'm sure.  Thank you, PBU and Doggie Stylish!

Well, Monday's pretty well spent, so enough of the craziness.  I think we're caught up now, just remember to check in this coming week, get your bid in for winning!
