Unbelievable . . .

. . . I'm still shaking my head.  So I'm visiting some of my favorite blogs.  Getting great ideas, pinning photos like mad - just being inspired as usual.  One of the blogs that I get to occasionally is The Pioneer Woman.  That Ree is just a hoot and I appreciate a good chuckle before going to bed.  Love her confessions and there are always great tips on the photography side.  For some reason, I clicked on her cooking page, not because I cook but because all of her recipes include butter.  That, to me, is goooood cooking!  Oh, and by the way, if you don't have her cookbook, get it!  Right away!  And make the chicken pot pie.  And the olive bread.  To. Die. For.  But back to my point . . .  She recently had a giveaway for a pot.  Okay, it was an orange French pot but still just a pot.  50,313 comments!  This is NOT a typo!  Over FIFTY THOUSAND comments!!!  

Can you believe it?  Would you enter a giveaway knowing there are over 50,000 other bloggers vying for this pot?  But then again, it IS a pot from Ree Drummond . . .

My next giveaway is going to include a pot.  Just saying . . .

Crazy, huh? Well, I'd still enter if I wanted an orange pot. I won Heather Bullard's fabulously generous Shabby Chic give-away last year. Well-over 700 people entered.

: )

I hope you're having a lovely June, Connie!

I agree! When I see her giveaways, there are always an outrageous number that enter. I've entered a couple of her photo contests & there is zero percent chance that she would ever look at my pics, lol.

Thank you for your sweet comments and coming to see me! DID I read that right? Over 50,000 hits. I'd faint! But I'm not much of a person who cooks so I'm scratching my head thinking...it's a pot right?? Am I missing something? Well of coarse I am, it's a FRENCH pot. Still, wow! ALways fun to see your blog! xoxo-cin

Me? No, I wouldn't bother.

Wowza! That is some following!

Hi Connie Girl,,,LTNChat! I've been SO busy! I no, no excuse, but it's true! Sick, Shows (Attending and participating), orders ,,,,,,orders and more orders! It's great, but I'm having trouble staying on top of it all!

I don't have an Orange pot,,,,but I DO have a slightly okay, well-used Le Creuset Stove Top "grill." And as often as I cook anymore,,,HA, that's just fine! (Of course if you give away an orange pot, I'd be sure to enter!!)

Hugs, Love and a Bus!

Oh, I thought you were going to say you WON the pot, LOL! I've visited her site now and then, too, but you are right, 50,000 comments? I'll stick to better odds!
