Shall We Celebrate?

Yo Folks!

It's Thursday night and while all you lovelies are getting your prime time TV on, I'm here to demand you get off your bum and celebrate with me.

Life has been lovely this week at Dixie Lust and I want to do a quick and easy give away to thank all you classy broads who make this oh-so fun!

First off, what are we celebrating?

  • My first Guest Post EVVVER
  • Picking the winner of Dixie Lust's First Photo Contest
  • Reaching 80 amazingly sweet followers
  • My not having to go to the doctor today
  • Winning a lovely little award from Marguerite at Cajun Delights
  • Me actually fixing my hair this morning - HOLLLLA
  • Feeling Good in the Neighborhood when it comes to my pesky infections
  • Urrrrrh... Why not celebrate?

So I announce....

While at Tinsel & Treasure this past weekend, I searched high and low for a little something for y'all. I came up a booth for Ellen Ishee Studios from Roland, AR and I fell in love. The booth was chock full of imported silk saris and re purposed Indian rice bag messenger bags, but my absolute favorite finds were their felt clutches and pins imported from Nepal. I made sure to pick up one set for myself and one for youuuu!

I am celebrating FALL! (Entry #2)

I had a wonderful summer, but fall is my favorite season and I love the change in weather and switch to more "cozy" clothes. I actually used the heater in my car tonight and it made me feel excited just knowing it was fall again.

Rachel/The Sheriff said...

I posted about your blog and contest to Twitter, and therefore Facebook also. (Entry #3)

I did an @reply so that you'd see it on Twitter. I don't know how to link to a specific tweet or status, but here are my pages that show it.

I'm definately celebrating the weather! OMG it's been amazing this week! Took good long walks, sat on my deck reading a great new book and watching the sunset and cooked dinner with the doors open! YAY for FALL!

I'm a follower, also I'm gearing up to celebrate my son's first birthday - one month from now.

It has a monkey/spaceship theme, I'm doing well on the monkey part but need to kick up the spaceship aspect.

Also, fall - but where I live we're almost at the peak of the colors which means the "big chill" will set-in within the next month! Booo!

I am a follower and right now I am celebrating my fabulous new do! I love getting my haircut. Its so freeing, satisfying and wonderful! I just want to go dancing now!

I'm so glad you stopped by Cheap Wine and Cookies because I LOVE your blog so far! I lived in New Orleans for 4 months while I went to Tulane, and I love Louisiana and the premise of your blog. I can't wait to read more.

My something to celebrate is getting to sleep in tomorrow for the first time in over 4 weeks followed by a wine festival tomorrow! So excited. Your give away also sounds awesome, but please award it to someone more deserving as I would have trouble receiving it at this point.

Hope your day continues to be something to celebrate!
