Going on a Jet Plane.....

April 2, 2012

I have been bursting with excitement having a hard time keeping my news secret but.......


I WON! 

Won what?


Won this:


Yes, my dream kitchen won the contest. I am off to Toronto in May to meet all the fabulous bloggers out east.

Winning kitchen!


But......

The icing on the cake is. Not only did I win, but they decided to choose another winner and that blogger is my friend Nancy from Marcus Design.

Woot woot! I have a plane mate and a roomie who will be sooo much fun to travel with!

Can't wait. It has been such awesome news, news I found out on Friday and had to keep quiet about until today.

I have never won a trip before, so this is a perfect start to the week.

 Gosh, what am I going to wear?

Thanks Aya Kitchens for this WONDERFUL and AMAZING opportunity.

 And for the gals at Blogpodium, you know who you are.....can't wait to meet you Lindsay and to chat again with you Jen!


Looking forward to the long Easter weekend coming up. Hope to get painting some of that espresso stained furniture littering my house!



XO Barbara
