Misc. Monday and GIVEAWAYS!!

The temperature has dropped here down south for the time being. As such, I'm able to open the doors to the sunroom to let the cats lounge about out there. Of course, right now they're more interested in what I'm doing in the craft room. They won't be too happy with that decision when 'outside time' is over this evening. Ah well. . . At least I'm enjoying the lower temps for now. I know it won't last long!

No matter how the kitties choose to spend their day, it's still a Monday for me. And some routines can't be changed no matter the weather. Monday is laundry and meal plan day! So here's the meal plan for me to share (I'm sure you have no interest in my laundry.)

Breakfasts: Cereal/grits, bagels, nutella turnovers, hashbrown baskets, omelets

Lunches: hot dogs w/tator tots, turkey sandwiches, leftovers, tuna noodles, soup w/grilled cheese, chicken salad, chicken fingers w/baked beans

Spicy orange garlic shrimp w/cauliflower & rice mix
Ham steaks w/corn & Mac-n-cheese
Crockpot chicken w/red potatoes & honey balsamic carrots
Salisbury steak in mushroom gravy w/mashed potatoes & green beans
Cheese ravioli w/salad

I finally caught up on all my blog reading this weekend and stumbled on some great GIVEAWAYS! As well, it's about time I picked a winner for mine.

If you'll remember, in my bead soup reveal I announced that I would be giving away this set to one lucky commenter.
I received 159 comments (so far)
Using a random number generator. . .

#35 is the winner. By my count (I counted twice) Joyce Becker is the WINNER!!
I've contacted Joyce via her Etsy shop. If I don't hear back from her by the end of the week, I'll pull another name.

Now, to share the giveaways I found over the weekend with you.

I've got a few fun projects on my desk that I'm chomping at the bit to get back to . . .plus that dang ole dryer buzzer just went off. So, I'm outie for now!
