Let's Get Acquainted Linky!

I've been a slacker blogger lately, so I'm going to link up with Latoya Reed's "Let's Get Acquainted" linky party so that I have something to post!

This week's theme is "nouns":

I can't choose just one person!  That's not fair!  I don't have a significant other, and I have some really great friends, so I couldn't just choose one.  I'd choose my dog, but I also have to choose a favorite animal, and I didn't want to double dip!

I am probably happiest on my porch swing.  But that's only because the beach is so far away!  My dad and I built this pergola last summer, and though it's not completely finished yet, I love spending time on my back deck now!  We also built the little porch beside the kitchen.  I've also spent some time planting lots of beautiful flowers and plants to make my backyard much prettier than it was!  It's like my own little oasis, almost.

I appreciate it even more because of the HUGE difference between when I bought the house and now.  

(And this picture is even outdated now- I got a new roof, and the ugly pipe has been painted so it blends in with the house!)

Currently, it's my sewing machine.  We've spent a lot of time together lately.  I spent a large chunk of my weekend making this little cutie:

I am convinced she needs a name.  She seems to have a personality.  Yes, I'm weird.  

I've also been selling them in my Etsy shop.  No monkeys listed yet, but they're coming soon!

My favorite animal is my dog, Molly!  She's just so sweet and funny and cute, and she's my whole world!  I love that girl!  I live alone with just her, so we're pretty tight.  LOL.  She thinks she needs to be near me all the time.  If she's not begging my neighbor for treats.  She's got everybody wrapped around her little wagging tail!

So... I am at 90 followers, and I have a feeling I'll end up at 100 very soon, so I'd like to plan a giveaway!  If you would like to help me out, please let me know!  I'll probably be contacting a few people to possibly donate an item, but I'd love it if you'd contact me if you'd like to help out!  (I am always willing to help out if you need me too!)

Also, you can follow me at my Facebook page!  I'm a little better about updating there!
