Virtual Vacations and a $100 Prize!

Mornings I check my email, make sure my blog posted, then see what's going on at Chickens in the Road, Tales from the CoopKeeper and Purple Chocolat Home. Sometimes, there's a fight brewing. Sometimes there's a Menopausal Meltdown. And sometimes when I'm lucky, I get to go to Hogsmeade Village, visit Hogswart School and partake in chocolate cauldrons from Honeyduke's.  

Yesterday I was making my "rounds," curled up on the couch in my pink robe, coffee in hand when I read on Jacqueline's blog Purple Chocolat Home that I was the winner of the $100 gift certificate from Macy's! I nearly dropped my coffee and I could barely type as I scrolled down to comment!

Macy's is an iconic destination for Christmas. If you are lucky enough to live close to one, you know first hand the fabulous holiday displays are the stuff that dreams are made of. We shopped at the Macy's in Sacramento, California when we lived there early 1970's. We would mostly "window shop," but the sales were good enough that we were able to buy a beautiful china hutch that we enjoyed many years. It now lives with our youngest daughter Amy in Texas. Every Christmas when we decorate the trees, I love to unwrap the special ornaments that mean so much to me. One of those ornaments was bought at Macy's nearly 40 years ago.

We haven't put our trees up yet, but when we do...I'll share that little Angel with you!
Thanks again Jacqueline for a wonderful giveaway,  I can't wait to do some online shopping!


  1. What a great way to start a morning....have fun shopping!!!

  2. Happy Days! I hope or I should say I know you will find a treasure to buy and maybe it will be 40% off. I bet you can make that $100 go a long way.

  3. What a great way to start your day; congratulations girl!

  4. What a nice Thanksgiving gift! I hope you are able to find something gorgeous for 75% off to really get some value out of your gift certificate - I love a bargain! Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. I already picked up my treat! Hope you find good deals...:)JP

  6. It was sooo much fun reading that you saw it and nearly dropped your coffee! I can just picture it. My husband thought I should have given away a trip to New York with it!!! Can you tell he is a business man and advertising budgets mean something different to him in the business world? It would have been fun. Have a great time and thanks for blogging about your winnings!

  7. Congrats to you Joycee! Enjoy your shopping and your Thanksgiving.
