Sassy Sunday Bloghop # 9 and SURPRISE Giveaway!

Howdy Y'all!

It's another bee-U-tee-FULL Spring morning here in Texas - and that's no April Foolin'!  It really has been unseasonably warm this Spring - so much so that if I don't throw my kids into the very next patch of bluebonnets I see, it's going to be too late for pictures this year - ack!!  Guess I will add that to my 'to do' list too!

We've just been busy around here, and there's been no time to slow down.  That's why I am so excited, because this week me and two of my besties are going to get a chance to do just that - Antiques Week has hit Texas and WE ARE THERE come Thursday!  Yee-Haw!!

What is Antiques Weekend you ask?  only THE LARGEST Antique/flea market/garage sale event you can imagine!!  It's miles and miles of warehouse and roadside vendors, that converge on the little towns of Warrenton and Round Top, TX twice a year.

It. Is. Awesome!!!!!!!!

You can read all about it on the Junk Gypsy Co. Roadside Ramblins' website.  They are two Aggie girls (Whoop!) who quit their day jobs to scour the country for things us do-it-yourselfers can't live without!  And they are the official hostesses of The Junk-O-Rama Prom on Thursday night!!

That's right!!  We're gonna be there too!

And I am SOOOO ready for my 'soul vacation!'
So, for this week's giveaway, I am going to SURPRISE one lucky linky with something special from Antiques Week!  I can't wait to go shopping for you!  Because the truth is my own house is FULL.  I'm talkin' gotta-move-something-out-to-get-something-in full!  Still, I have a few things I'm looking for this week (wink), but mostly I am just looking forward . . . . to a little time away, a little time with grown-ups friends, a little time to unwind underneath that big starry, Texas sky!

Deep breath - ahhhhhhhh!
We has So MANY great links this week - it was amazing and FUN (!!) to see what everyone out there is up to and Randee and I appreciate each and every link!
So much Spring awesomeness this week, like this flower wreath made from coffee filters by Steph at Crafting in the Rain!!  She even included the how-to in her post, so go check it out!

I'm embarrassed to admit that I gained 8 POUNDS over the holidays that I have only recently gotten mad enough to do something about (Grrrr), so this low carb dessert from Joy's Jots, Shots and Whatnots caught my eye!  Sounds delicious, doesn't it?!


In addition to our 'regular' requests (only originals, no repeats, no promotions for businesses/other parties/etsy stores, follow your hostesses Dammit!), my 'new' rule this week is that you must have a backlink to the Sassy Sunday Blog Hop on your post to be eligible for the SURPRISE!  We really do want to share the fun with everyone and we appreciate your help speading the word!  We had almost double the links this week, so keep up the good work!!  We love you!

Now show me what 'cha got . . . and I promise to post some pics from the road this week, so you can see all the fabulousness and start making plans for your own road trip this Fall!

I'll even meet 'cha there!
