Random Friday

First of all, my last post was my 400th post. If you have been around very long, you know I don't host contests. I just tell you when somebody wins. Today, the winner is MALisa of Moonlight Hollow.
How did she qualify to win, you ask? Well, she commented on my 400th post. Everyone who commented on Tuesday's post was entered. (I absolutely love making up my own rules.) Thank you to everyone who leaves comments regularly, in spite of my absentee-ism lately! So, what did she win? Well, I think we'll let her tell us. MALisa, would you like a magazine subscription to Elle Decor or House Beautiful or Veranda or name-your-magazine? Congrats!

Next...I have 13 gals coming to my house for the Clothes Swap tomorrow morning. We will fill up 4 racks of clothes from size xs to 1x and swap til we drop!

I'm thinking this is going to be a lot of fun!

Next...Are these shoes, like, way history, out of style? They are mighty comfy. I have them in tan and in blue. But, I think they are past their day. Maybe some nice homeless person will like them, because I'm not sure they are nice to offer to my swap friends.

Next...y'all know that my boyfriend, David, can take some pictures.
David and the lens
If you'd like to see all the pictures he took last weekend, click here. The slideshow is the way to go.

So, in addition to being the photographer of all things fun in my life, he also happens to be a creative wordsmith. Robelyn did a sweet little post about Favorite Things yesterday and inquired of everyone what their favorite things are. Think about the song from The Sound of Music. Now. Here is David's response:

"My sweetheart, a road trip
With fresh geocaches
My camera and lenses
With filters and flashes
We drive down the road just to see what it brings
These are a few of my favorite things

Stopping at yard sales
And colorful places
Taking our picture
With smiles on our faces
A Hill Country cottage
And clear flowing springs
These are a few of my favorite things

A field of bluebonnets
An old windmill spinning
My truck filled with treasures
That leave my love grinning
White chippy pieces and rusty bedsprings
These are a few of my favorite things

When the work piles
When I'm stressed out
Under a heavy load
I simply remember my favorite things
Then Mindy and I hit the road!"

I sure do love this man!
After the Clothes Swap, David and I are hitting the road. Hope y'all have a great Memorial Day Weekend!

Veterans, I thank you!
