Coming to You Live From Chilly's Office!

Hi! Comments are now closed for this post so we can prepare them for the drawing in the Monster Giveaway! Thank you for participating!

If I had a Wordle this weekend, it would be here! But alas, my hubster's office computer doesn't have any fancy software for me to use, so just pretend you see my Wordle here!)

It's Saturday and that means Shannon over at Last Shreds of Sanity is hosting Weekend Wordles! Clickety on over and check out the fun!

Also, please excuse any drooling you may encounter on your visit here today. Chilly was watching the Food Network before we left and it was all about BBQ ribs....all I can think about now are BBQ ribs.....

We've had quite a week here at Bee and Rose! Let's recap, shall we?

We started by kicking off the MONSTER Giveaway to celebrate my 100th post! There are 20 fabulous prizes up for grabs with still more opportunities to win! (We'll get to all that fun in a minute!)

We had a malicious power surge that took down "My Precious" (I always say that like that creepy Golem dude from Lord of the Rings) aka my laptop, our flat screen tv and my son's XB360. Thankfully, the XB360 was repaired with the help of Microsoft within minutes of the tragedy. Of course, the priority was the XB360 because a tween without his gaming console is a horrible thing to witness. Then my laptop was whisked off to the intensive care unit at the Geek Squad hospital where she is currently being treated. She may not be released until (and I'm going to try to say this without crying....) NEXT WEDNESDAY! So I am skulking around stealing time on my parent's computer until my precious laptop is returned. (horrors!) I am actually writing this to you today from my husband's office computer which is 40 miles from my home!

My sweet Chilly offered up his office computer so I could catch up on my blogstalking and comment love spreading today! (Do you hear the hallelujahs??!!) He has a big old 22" monitor and a big cushy chair so I'm feeling spoiled. you want two more opportunities to enter the giveaway? You do? Well, here's what you need to do....

*For Saturday's entry, go on over to visit my friend Claire at Laurora (her adorable Etsy shop). Claire is the designer of those "suh-weet" fabric fortune cookies in the giveaway! Come on back here and tell me what you liked over there. Voila! There's an entry for ya!

*For Sunday's entry, please head on over to Raven's Etsy shop, Dirty Pretty Things and once again, return here to comment about what you like there. Raven is the creator of the fabulous silhouettes in the giveaway!

FINE PRINT...You must visit these shops on the specified days for your entries to count!

Now for the BIG Giveaway News!!!!

Because you all have been so incredibly supportive and understanding of my lack of commenting and communication due to my computer issues, I am adding....hold on....wait for it....FIVE additional prizes to the giveaway!

That's right! I said FIVE!!!!!! I will announce them on Monday so be sure to come back over for a visit! Make sure that if you are entering the original Giveaway for the first time that each entry requirement is left as a separate comment.

For Example....

Comment on the original Monster Giveaway Post = One Entry

Add Yourself as a Follower = One Entry

If you already follow, tell me that you do in a separate comment = One Entry

Blog about the Giveaway and comment that you did with a link = One Entry

I am using to choose the winners so entries must be made separately in order for you to have multiple chances to win!

You can also go to additional posts here and here for other entry opportunities!

Don't forget to come on back by Monday so you can see the new prizes added!!!! I know you will be tickled silly when you see them!

And again, thank you from the bottom of my heart, for understanding my plight. I'm not trying to be rude by not commenting or visiting your blogs. I'm actually quite the stalker /commenter when my computer is up and running! I am going to try to get around as much as time allows here at Chilly's office today and say hello!

Have a wonderful weekend! Happy Easter!

I'm so sorry you're without "precious" for soooo long. Good thing there are other computers available. I went to her great shop. And I am totally in LOVE with the "hot monkey love" card. I totally laughed out loud. I gotta get one of those and give it to the hubster.
Vickie said…
I liked the The Daisy pillow dress here:

To bad you can't do a wordle right now. I can't either. My computer will not let me! My friend Jeannie over at Jeannie's Happy World has been doing it for me:)

I just don't know how you are handling all this complicated giveway stuff on top of everything else. Let's just make it simple ... pick me for the items I want and then do whatever else you want.
Raven said… ARE you gonna get thru all these entries??!!??
We all love you!

I could totally collect those prints from dirty pretty things, but those silhouettes of the sewing things made me want to hang them got it! my sewing room. Brilliant ideas form regularity in my mind like that. ;)
Sara and Alex said…
Excuse me? At Laurora Claire makes children's dresses out of pillowcases! Why didn't I think of that? I made curtains out sheets why not clothes out of pillowcases? I love the Apples and Pears Pillowcase Dress for my daughter.
Sara and Alex said…

(Update! Comments are now closed for the Monster Giveaway! Thank you for participating!)

Whooo's 100?

I am! This is my 100th post!

To say I am astonished and humbled by the incredible support of my blog from fellow bloggers, friends and family would be an ginormous understatement! I am truly, deeply grateful that ya’ll stop by and visit me! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

(I had this scheduled to post at midnight, but for some reason, it didn't! I got up to check it about 1:30 am and discovered blogger's mischief! Sorry if you came by then!)

All righty then…do you have a cup of coffee, hot cocoa, tea, martini? How about a masseuse? You’re gonna need it! It’s my 100th post and by the time you are done reading it, you’ll probably feel as old and tired as Rip Van Winkle! You know me and my long winded rambley-ness! (....the giveaway is here..I promise!)

So, this is what I’ve come to know about blogging in the last 100 days….

Blogging is like taking a vacation to a place you never k…

For Gigi ... A Letter to Heaven

Today there is a happy celebration in Heaven as it would be my beautiful grandmother Gigi's birthday.  Gigi was definitely the most important influence on my life and it became crystal clear to me how deeply when I was asked to write the eulogy for her memorial service a few years back.  I decided to send a letter directly to God explaining what amazing treasure was on it's way.  It is a letter meant to bring smiles and giggles.  Thanks in advance for allowing me to share that special letter with you today as we honor her memory:)

A Wee Drop of Irish (or Cloudy With a Chance of B*tchy Part 2)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! How about a wee stroll down memory lane?  Thank you to everyone who messaged me about sharing this blast from the past again this year:)  (yes, Maureen...I do read your emails too!)  Even though it was originally posted in 2009, not too much has changed (says Dawn in her "I can't believe I have PMS every single year at this same time"  happy (think Pharrell singing "Happy") voice.  So grab a cup of Irish coffee, Jameson whiskey, Guinness or whatever suits your fancy on this fine St. Patrick's Day and let me share a tale of whimsy with you.  (and may the luck of the Irish be with you if you come my way today!  Don't say I didn't warn you!)   

Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we? 

Well, since I have a full day of Irish activities planned, I guess I better be gettin' my Irish on....hmm...let's s…
