Monday Musings {and a giveaway winner!}

I just have to ask. Has anyone tried the new Caramel Brulee Latte at Starbucks? I know, I know...I make it sound like I really am addicted to Starbucks...but I promise I'm not. I just really want to try it. But first I thought I'd see if anyone else likes it! So let me know.


Guess what? We have a winner for the Cymbaline Designs giveaway!

I plugged the numbers in at, and number ONE happened to be the lucky one. And the winner is

I've already sent Heidi an email, so congratulations!


I really just want to give all of you blog followers and commenters a huge

Thank You

While I try to remind myself that comments and followers aren't everything, they do help me feel encouraged to blog. Does that make sense? So thanks. Because all of you are pretty special.

And really, I'm not just saying that.


Last night I sat down and wrote myself a "blogging schedule". Not a big deal really, just a simple thing. I'm hoping that having a blogging plan will keep me from getting stressed out when I feel like I don't have anything to post. And this is perfectly flexible for me. It will probably change. Of course. So if you'd like to know what to expect for now, here it is:

Monday--a Monday Musings post like this one. I like the freedom to be random.
Wednesday--Whatever post I think up. This depends mostly on my life. I'll write about what I'm thinking, how I'm feeling, or something funny that happened.
Friday--I'll share something I like. It might be in the form of some Etsy finds, or a product I love. I'd love to do some giveaways, too, but I'm still working on that.

Tomorrow I'll already be changing my schedule, though. I got an award over the weekend and I need to make my "formal acceptance speech". Do you have a cute blog? I need to nominate 10 others for the award, and I'm giving you a chance to get one. Just leave a link and I'll come visit you! Tomorrow the cute blogs will be announced.


Well, that about all I've got for now. Whew! Hope you all had a great weekend. Feel free to tell me about it!

I had a great weekend. There's a big, special announcement coming soon over at my place (sometime within the next 3 weeks) and it's going to be my blogiversary, as well as my 100th post! Lots of Briggs fun to come!

That Starbucks special thingy sounds pretty good. I might have to give that a try soon. I like sweet coffee, not super strong plain stuff. This sounds like I might enjoy it. :)

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
