Sunglasses and Whoopie Pies

I have the hardest time hanging on to my sunglasses. I used to have a clip-on pair that was magnetized that came with my prescription glasses. When I changed prescriptions, the sunglasses no longer fit on my new pair.

When I was up in Penn Yan, New York in the Finger Lakes Wine Region, I bought several clip-on pairs at the Windmill that were reasonably priced. The Windmill Farm and Craft Market is really cool. There are over 100 vendors of farm produce and handcrafted items produced by local artisans. The region has a high population of Amish, and I was able to also find not only some beautiful crafts, but also baked goods! I tasted my first Whoopie Pie there!

Wordless Wednesday Moments

When I was up in Vermont visiting charming son-in-law’s parents, I opened my email one day and found out through Bargain Briana about a digital camera special going on at Walgreens. Well, I was outside of Montpelier and no Walgreens was to be found. Through emails and phone calls, I was able to have my daughter get one for me back home in Connecticut. The special was only going on for one day, I think. After rebate, the camera came to about $10.

I really enjoy taking scenery photographs, so now I keep the digital camera in my car for when I happen upon a photo shoot that I think might be worthy of being featured in a Wordless Wednesday moment.

Contest Rules

I’ve been running quite a few Giveaways and Contests over on my Review blog and WAHM blog lately.

What I don’t understand is what’s so hard about following contest rules? They’re pretty simple usually – just visit the sponsor’s site and leave a comment about what you like about the site and why you’d like to win the prize. If the rules aren’t followed, the entry doesn’t count.

I’ve been finding comments such as “I’d love to win this prize.” End of Comment. Sorry, but you’re automatically disqualified if you leave a comment like that. Learn to read and follow instructions.

I always allow for extra entries too.

Hope you all enjoyed the long Memorial Day Weekend! Check out my photos from our daytrip to Boston for a wedding on the harbor and then our daytrip to the Connecticut Shoreline!

    Mmmm…whoopie pies…mmm…

    I’m from Maine originally, Land of Many and Glorious Whoopie Pies. I live in Maryland now, and you can’t find them anywhere. No one even knows what they are.

    You can get a pretty freaking fantastic crab cake, though. :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

  3. What IS a whoopie pie?? I’m intrigued!
