Three give-aways in one (by Kat)

Neener neener neener!
Snooze, you lose!
Hey Bet, I wrote this post and you didn't!

Ahem. And now for something completely different.

Little House in the Suburbs is the best blog ever, and is in fact the blog that lead, in part, to the creation of our blog.

Last spring, Bet said "let's start" a blog. Here's my [nearly] exact response:

Date: Tue, 17 Mar 2009 20:16:04 -0700 (PDT)
Subject: Re: I have this idea...

If you could see me right now, you'd totally see the deer in the headlights glaze...

So, right now, deer in the headlights.
Would you be Ivory Soap or would you be Tomato Lady?

So, even as I was saying no, I guess I was saying yes, and Bet is just the kind of gal to know that.

Bet, did you even know what blog I was referencing in that last line?

So anyway, Little House in the Suburbs has been a longstanding habit of mine. Because of them, I've had lye and shortening containers on the counter for about a year, 'cause someday I'm going to make soap. I'm also going to learn to crochet so I can make an afghan per the instructions on their site. If I could just figure out the braided rug instructions, I'd try that, too.

Well, today Little House is having a giveaway. They're giving an extra shot to anyone who blogs about it and links back.

I beat Bet to it! Whoo hoo! Neener neener neener!

We're sooooo grown up, aren't we?
