Musings on Monday...Begging & Pleading Edition

Greetings, my friends! It's a happy day here at the Bee and Rose! I have been blessed by Kristen over at La Dolce Vita as a Featured Reader this week!

La Dolce Vita

Many of you are familiar with Kristen, her blog and her FABULOUS Etsy shop! She is the amazing creator and designer of the most amazing hand-stamped jewelry! I'm always skulking around over there drooling all over the goodies....cyber drooling...no worries!

Here are a few of my favorite pieces....





I went crazy silly when I saw her "I love you more" necklace! My kids and I have a sweet ritual where we say this to each other all day long. And the "Good Witch" necklace is absolutely perfect to wear to all of my Black Crow Boutique events! I purchased one of her "dog tags" for my son who wears it all the time! Very cool!

Because Kristen is a very generous soul, she is giving me an opportunity to win one of her amazing necklaces! Every time one of you, my sweet bloggy friends, visits the Featured Reader post (about me) on her blog and leaves a comment, I get a vote! Woo Hoo!

(ON MY KNEES....BEGGING...PLEADING....for realz....)

You can vote for me (by commenting on that post at her blog) once a day for up to 7 days from the time the interview is posted! I need a minimum of 10 votes over a weeks time to be included in the contest. (Even one teensy vote is perfect!)

I would LOVE to win anything from Kristen! (This is the part where I start begging and pleading with even greater desperation...I'm not proud....I can beg with the best of them!)

So what can I do to bribe ya'll out of some votes? You want some eye candy??? Maid service? A professional chef for a month? How about some porn?

(I know...you've seen this over here before, but what can I tell ya? I love it when hot guys clean house!)

I really appreciate it!! If you haven't already become acquainted with Kristen, I hope you'll head on over! Her blog is fantastic! (and you might find a little treasure or two for yourself too!)

Wishing you the happiest of Mondays!

xoxo


ps...As many of you know, Blogger kidnapped me and removed me from all of the blogs I followed recently. If I followed your blog, I still do...a blogger fail (some dumb code issue) won't all me to re-join via Friend Connect.) I still can comment and hope to be back to regular commenting this week. We are preparing for an Irish dance competition and I haven't much blogging time. I hope to resume normal commenting after today! Thank you all for understanding!

I've been a fan of Kristen's work for about a year now... she does fabulous work! I have several of her pieces and love every one. And Kristen herself is pretty darn fabulous, too!

On my way now to leave you some comment love on her blog...

I think the I LOVE YOU MORE necklace would be better if it was I LOVE YOU WHORE! Thatd be funny!

Those are all so stinkin' cute! I'll go and vote for you right now! :0)
Congrats on being featured! Those necklaces are so wonderful. My mom and step-dad have been saying "I love you more" to each other for over 11 years now, and seeing that instantly reminded me of them and their wonderful relationship.


Thank you deeply for your caring comment, honey. I hope you're having an excellent week.

(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…

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…

Chilly Update...

I hate this disease with a passion...more on that in a moment...

First and foremost, there aren't enough words in the English language to convey my most sincere gratitude for the amazing love and support you've all shared with my family. I am completely overwhelmed and very humbled by it all. I've shared all of your comments and emails with Chilly and the kiddos. It has meant so much to us! Thank you, thank you and thank you again!

I wish I could write that Chilly is fine and coming home tomorrow. I wish I could go back to last Friday when every fiber of my being was screaming at me that Chilly was having a heart attack. I wish I would have pinned him to the ground and shoved an aspirin down his throat when he put me off about his symptoms. I wish he would have agreed to go to the ER...Sadly, I can't turn back time...

We were told today that Chilly has suffered a stroke in addition to a heart attack. These two events occured together...meaning, he had the stroke w…
