A-Z Meme

Today I am giving away a Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Orange and Ginger boxed gift set. Prefect to wake up your senses. It 's "energizing". Who doesn't love Bath and Body?
To enter this giveaway, all you have to do it leave a comment. I will draw names for each giveaway this week and announce all winners in my July 24th post. Good Luck!

Grabbed this meme from my friend Susan over at Life in the Psych Ward and thought it looked like fun, especially for a blogoversary!!!

• Are you available? That depends on what your asking.
• What is your age? 38....I'll be 39 very soon....
• What annoys you? All kinds of things! The economy right now, Rudeness, people who think they are better than someone else, know it all's, dishonesty, my carpet in its current state, parents who allow their children to behave inappropriately (turn a blind eye).

• When was the last time you cried? Oh, goodness. I cry at silly things and yet I am a rock in hard times, I think. I guess the last time I cried was this week, at my own silly insecurities that I hope to one day grow out of. Funny said at the cusp of forty, hmm?
