Imagine my surprise when I got an email from Eileen at CSN today telling me she would like to help me promote my blog and CSN by conducting a giveaway of a kitchen or home decor item.

My blog is horrible! I have no idea what I'm doing, I need "Blogging for Dummies" or a tutor. I would love to have a sweet layout with a Mexican Food background - but where do you find that? And I want a blog roll, and I want to know how to blog about someone's giveaway.

I am going to take some photos of my beautiful antique Mexican dishware and post some of those this weekend, if I can figure it out. And hope we aren't too busy dealing with teenage angst or doing yardwork that we can go out to eat some of the Mexican food we are MAD for and I can review it and post some pictures. We haven't been to Garcia's in Wichita for a while, and that is where I had my first taste of Mexican food outside of Mexico, thanks to my dear friend Melissa.

Next weekend is my youngest nephew's wedding so I'll be seeing my niece, Stephanie, who has a blog. Maybe she can help me out and one day soon, this will look like a REAL blog.


  1. Hi :)
    I saw that you had been over at my blog.

    I got TONS of help with my blog, trust me, it wasn't that pretty in the beginning.

    The blogroll thing is easy, I could help you with that.

    The Mexican food thing, well if you find a pic I could try that too.

    If you want help, I would gladly offer it, I am not some blogging genius, but we can sure do soemthing :=)
