Total Slacker

Yes, that's right, i'm a total blog slacker.  My wonderful friend Linda had to ask if i chose a winner for the 2 giveaways....and yes i did.  I just did not blog about it.  I did contact the winners, which is way better than announcing the giveaway winners and NOT contacting them, like some bloggers.  Which is my super huge blog pet peeve.  Of which i have, like, many.  Total My So Called Life quote right there.

Would the fact that i leave for vacation really really soon be a good excuse for my slacker ways?  There's been a lot of clothing trying on and discarding (you do that, too, right?  Try everything on?)  There's been a lot of staring at my cat and crying-i seriously hate to leave her.  If i could wear her like a baby in a sling strapped to my body, believe me, i would.  There's been a lot of CD and ebook downloading.  There's been a lot of later work hours messing up my normal schedule. 

So let's get to it--the winner of the Ramsign giveaway was super cool, zombie loving, cupcake making Sourkraut and the winner of the Miracle Gro giveaway was good find collecting, etsy shop having, new friend Debbie.



But don't go yet--help me!  Has anyone been to Aruba?  I told you guys my reason for going, and my stepmom and trip advisor have given me lots of recommendations for restaurants and beach locations.  But what else?  Is there someplace i must try?  Something you wish you knew before you took your trip there?

I love the idea of carrying your cat in a sling. I bet you could hide her in your luggage for the plane ride!
Have a great time!

I've never been to Aruba but heard it's more relaxing there, so I don't know what that means.LOL
We leave May 26th for Cabo, Mexico and I can't wait and yes, I try on clothes and have even been buying new ones for the trip!
I hope you have a wonderful time and just relax!

Have a wonderful time. Nothing beats lying on the beach all day (for me anyway). I have never been to Aruba so I'm no help in that department, but as a seasoned traveler i suggest you just wander around and get lost at least once. have fun. :)

the Bahamas or Mexico... Have a wonderful time and slacking is
allowed...

Thanks for stopping by! And hey I'm a fellow blog slacker too. Seems like when I get into it, I can blog weekly... then I go through the motions of life and I'm lucky to blog once a month. I haven't been to Aruba, but it looks like a lovely place to visit!

Wishing you a wonderful holiday.

The fruits you asked about on my blog post are paw paws. Really delicious, so good for you and so easy to grow.

Should be available in Aruba, would make a wonderful holiday snack.
