Apparently Excess Is Bad For You *Giveaway!*




Oregon Trail

You know what I'm sayin'?

Although my current state of feeling unda-da-wed-da *achoo!* could be contributed to my seasonal allergies and the fact that every morning a new layer of pollen, thicker and heavier than before, is brought down from the heavens laid gently devastatingly upon everything, I'm going to say it's a sugar sickness.

I've caught the sugar sickness.  Rest here and go hunting.  Caulk the wagon and ford the river.  It's a snakebite.

What I'm trying to say is, Cake Week might be killing me.  Make no mistake, I go happily, but I go nevertheless.  The icecream cake was made, *NOT* photographed, and then eaten appreciatively.  Sorry 'bout the photo part, I think the sugar sickness was starting to set in around that time.  Then the Lemon Pound Cake was made.  And photographed in really bad lighting.  And also eaten appreciatively by all in my office.  But you're going to have to take my word for it; I don't have the gumption or the moxie to do anything near ambitious as editing/posting pictures.  With sugar sickness, moxie and gumption are among the first to go.  Followed quickly by the desire to move. at. all.  

I'm assuming you forgive me, in light of my limited time remaining in this mortal coil.  

In case you don't forgive me right away, let me bribe you.  You're okay with that, right?  Up for grabs to you peeps, in honor of Cake Week 2012, (and possibly in honor of my untimely demise) we're giving anyone who has ever eaten cake the opportunity to own a piece of Cake Week 2012 memorabilia. 

That's right, I said "we".  Because Sharon from b.haven is back, and better than ever.  Whereas my gumption and moxie have fled, Sharon seems to have both in spades.  I swear, there's new stuff in her shop every time I look.  The worst part is, it's always cuter and cuter!

So here's the deal.  You enter to win, between now and Saturday, 4/14/12 @ 11:59, the official end of Cake Week 2012.  I draw a random number, and that person wins.  They win big.  They win a set of these darling things:

Here's how you get entries:
  • Check out b.haven's shop, and tell me your favorite item, One Entry
  • "Like" b.haven on facebook, One Entry
  • Check out little Ms. b.haven's blog, and leave her a comment! One Entry
  • Share this giveaway in some way (twitter, facebook, smoke signal, telegram...) One Entry
That's it.  You might say, it's a piece of cake.  You might say that.  Or I might have hydrophobie, on top of my sugar sickness.  It's really hard to tell.  Just pay for the Ferry, it's worth it every time.

Shoulda stayed in Jefferson City,


  1. Sounds like you have the fever. BAD.

  2. "I like my dinner like I like my men, hot and made for me." Made me belly laugh!

  3. I left a comment on her post about her step-granddaughter.

  4. Love the Oregon Trail reference. We loved that game as kids. :-)

  5. I used to rock the Oregon Trail. Big time.

    I'm loving her "Why Yellow Gorgeous" towels. Too cute for words.
