Surprise Party

March 4, 2013

Surprise....I am guest hosting a link party today with........
I am so excited to be guest hosting with the girls from Texas and Arizona today, but honestly it got me thinking
Hmmmm.... What's the real reason I am here?
I wonder if the girls heard that I lived in Texas for several years and that's why they wanted me to be a guest host?
Or could it be that I loved going to the Houston Livestock Rodeo and couldn't wait to put my boots and hat on for the greatest show around? 
I hope they don't find out that I have never been to Arizona but I do like Arizona tea. Hope that counts!

But I am thinking the real reason might be that I live in the middle of the country (just not in Texas or Arizona), on a dirt road surrounded by ponies, donkeys, cows, dogs, cats, fish and enough wildlife that they start to become friendly and read your blog everyday! 
In fact the coyotes are probably reading about my breakfast room right now here
And the white tail deer are reading about my home office here
But whatever the reason, I am thrilled to be hosting today and if any of those Texas or Arizona gals want to come to Georgia, I can show them around- Georgia Peach style! 

Now here's Anita with some party details
