I Had a Pretty Fabulous Week

by Amy Stafford on June 23, 2012

This week has been pretty exciting for me.

On Monday I was notified by Jessica at A Lot on Your Plate that I had won her Baking Competition with my Chocolate Shortbread Cookie tipped in Chocolate Recipe.  I was pretty thrilled!  I did a little fist pump!  She posted my recipe on her blog and announced I was the winner.  Below that she showed the other participants and the recipe titles that were entered into the competition.  Seeing my competition made me feel even prouder and a little in awe, there were some really awesome recipes entered!

Check out her site, she shares a little bit of everything, from apps for our phones, to things to buy Dad for Fathers day to great baking items we can’t live without.  Well, me at least! :) and easy recipes for everyone.

She told me I have won a mystery prize and that it is being shipped to me.  I received it on my door step yesterday.  A Homemade Recipe Keeper by Susan branch.  What a great way to organize my favorite recipes.  Thank you Jessica.

If that wasn’t enough to pump me up, on Wednesday Fine Gardening on line picked my Garden to be their “Garden Photo of the Day”!  I was over the moon!  Thank you Fine Gardening.  They highlight a different readers garden everyday.  I sent in my photos awhile ago and just assumed I had been passed over.  So, it was even a sweeter surprise when I won.   I have been reading this magazine for years, they highlight areas of gardening by zone, so there is always something geared towards where you live, touching on plant guide, design and how to.  Definitely worth visiting if you like gardening!









Please go and check out my pics and give them a “Thumbs Up”  at Amy’s Garden in Ohio!

Thanks and I hope your week was wonderful and your weekend is even better!!
