But take a look at these shiny stainless steel pans!
I've been wanting to purchase some new stainless steel bread and muffin pans ever since I read this. Who knew? Because of the hefty price tag attached to stainless steel bake ware, I'd put off buying it and hoped that one day I'd receive some as a gift from Dan or the kids (I'm practical that way...).
Enter April's recent giveaway celebrating the 1st anniversary of the Hearth and Soul blog hop. I could not believe it when she e-mailed to let me know that I was the giveaway winner and would be receiving a $50 Amazon gift card! It's not everyday that I go Amazon shopping, but I was sure happy to buy some new pans. I was even happier when the package arrived and even happier still when I baked muffins with my new muffin pan yesterday. :) Thanks, April!!
Another recent giveaway I entered was over at Far Above Rubies. I was blessed to be selected as a winner for a free download of 31 Days to Clean...
Each of the 31 days includes a Mary challenge and a Martha challenge. I'm looking forward to reading this one over the summer. :) Thanks, Jasmine!
And as if that weren't enough, an e-mail arrived yesterday announcing that I'd been selected as a winner in a drawing I entered while at the OCEAN homeschool conference in Portland! I'm looking forward to listening to a free download of "Nurturing Competent Communicators" -- a message by Andrew Pudewa (Excellence in Writing). (Thanks, IEW!!)
It's been a fun month! I guess I do win, sometimes, and I'm thankful. How about you? What are you thankful for today?
