FFF! First Friend Friday!


That’s right.  You  heard it right here.  First Friend Friday!  Now feel free to correct me if I’m wrong, but I’d venture to say that this term has yet to be coined in the blogosphere.  At least not a term that coincides with those pictures people parade around on social media for things like TBT (Throw Back Thursday), WW (Wacky Wednesday), etc.  How do I know?  Well, well, well, my friends.  Google is a very magical place where you can find answers to just about everything.  (Just FYI.  Be very careful with the medical answers and advice you find on Google.  They aren’t always reliable.)  When searching “Friend Friday” I got all sorts of things:  Furry Friend Friday, Foodie Friend Friday, Feathered Friend Friday, Free Friend Friday Possibly, Facebook Friend Friday, Featured Friend Friday, Favorite Friend Friday.  The list could go on and on.  There was even New Friend Friday and Best Friend Friday.  The only thing remotely close was the term ‘My First Friend Friday’, but that was in reference to the very first posting bloggers were doing for Friend Friday.  You know that weekly blog party where bloggers answer random questions???  Yeah that one.  So I’m seriously thinking that FFF just hasn’t been coined yet.  Who knows?  Maybe it does exist out there on some very remote page that’s showing up somewhere in the more than 147,000 search results, but for now I’m just fine with saying it wasn’t coined before.  🙂   Alrighty then.  Let’s get this FFF thing started.

That very first friend ever.  We’ve all got ’em.  Who was YOUR very first friend?  Are you still friends?  For this blog posting I’m actually using a photo that I broke out yesterday for TBT.  It was broken out for personal use, so you all didn’t get to see it.  😉   It’s a throw waaayyy back and it’s a picture of me and my very first friend:

Becky and I were adorbs.  Ahem.  I mean… we are still adorbs.  😉

Yes, we are still friends.

Technically this girl and I were friends before birth.  It’s true.  Our parents were good friends before us wee ones were even thought of.  🙂   They spent their weekends camping and boating.  All carefree like.  Way back in the 70’s when life was easier.  😉   Apparently our dads used to love to compare whose ski boat was better.  I’ll bet it involved their fancy sports cars, too.  Okay.  It’s very possible that to this day, whenever they are in the same room, they still do compare such things.  And neither one of them still has a ski boat or sports car!  Ahhh.  The life before kids…

So there you have it, folks.  First Friend Friday.  Stay tuned for future pictures of me and my first friend.  Next Friday.  Same place.  Same first friend.

Going Nowhere


As Audi drives us along (somewhere in Tennessee) I figured now is as good a time as any to let you know the news. Dandy Giveaway is no longer for sale, because I’m not selling it! I’ve decided to keep it going by having contributors help with the blog postings and giveaways. Now doesn’t that sound dandy??? Want to be a contributor at Dandy Giveaway? Spots are limited, so you gotta email me soon to find out how! 🙂
Simply email dandygiveaway at gmail dot com to find out all the details.

Contract bloggers…

So in regards to this selling Dandy business, I’m really sad to do that. I mean how would I ever be able to come back and post on here again. Keep in touch with all of you? See what I mean? Sad. Sure I’ll have loads of fun in the St. Louis wedding rental and St. Louis party rental business, but I’ll miss you all so much! So what if didn’t sell??? What if I contracted bloggers to work on the Dandy? That could totally work and then I could occasionally come back to do a posting to stay connected with all of you! Thoughts? Interest? Would you want to work at Dandy Giveaway? Let me know and I’m thinking that I could make that happen. 🙂 Email me at dandygiveaway at gmail dot com. Have a dandy weekend my dandy friends!

Have you ever?

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to own and operate Dandy Giveaway?  Interested in working for home and earning money by advertising for fun companies?  Well, now is your chance!  🙂   I’m both happy and sad to announce that this site is now up for sale.  I’m happy, because that means I’m moving into the next chapter of my life which is St. Louis ice cream machine rental…  Coming soon and more on that later!  😉   Also, happy because I’ll still be running Dandy Giveaway until it sells.  Sad that I will be leaving when it sells.  I’ll miss you all too, too much.  But I know that the buyer will be a great one.  I have faith in that.  It has been so fun to start this site, see it grow into something big, and love all the dandiness!  But the fact of the matter is with 2 kiddos I can’t run both businesses.  I’ve contemplated hiring someone to run Dandy Giveaway for me, but I know that would be hard for me to do, because then I would still want to work on Dandy Giveaway.  If that makes sense.  I’ve grown it and now it’s time to let someone else take it into their hands.  Don’t stress. I’ll still be around for awhile with great giveaways and more for you to enjoy.  Not going anywhere yet.  🙂
