I have voted all I can ;) so now I am going to blog!

Have you ever wanted something so bad you could taste it? Have you ever thought, "if I can't have it, I would at least like for one of my friends to be blessed with it"? That is where I am at right at this moment....
I have a confession to make...I am apronly challenged.....sigh, there I said it....
I have always loved aprons, I remember hanging on to my Mamaw's apron as she would cook on our woodstove when I was growing up (yes, that is not a typo or a joke lol), I drool over all these gorgeous retro aprons I see, but I do not own ONE apron. Honestly if we had any extra moola to spare I would have already bought one this week! Maybe it is my upcoming 32nd bday...maybe it is that I am finally at a point in my life that I savor those "domestic" things, who knows, but I am seriously jonesin' for an apron...and not just any apron....no.....I want one of the Apron Queens aprons! Sadly, or not so sadly, IF I win I would be getting the barbeque men's apron for Lane for Christmas. My "baby" boy has become quite the grilling guy! (He is 13 1/2, so I hover behind him a LOT, but he makes some killer burgers and such)....
Ok enough of the blabbering!....Would YOU like to win one of her wonderful aprons (or TWO!...or FOUR?!) Then just hop over to her blog HERE and read up on how you can! Then, hop over to the shop HERE and check out all of the aprony fabulousness that IS RickRackAttack (aprons by the apron queen)....leave her a comment, tell her I sent you (I am not beyond brown-nosing any more than she is beyond bribing ;) ), tell her what a wonderful person I am and how much I should have a new apron to start my collection, send vibes to the random number generator to pick MY number...or if you win you could just send it to me :D....or keep it yourself (but then you HAVE to promise me that you will post pics of you looking apron-queen-fabulous so that I can live vicariously through you :D)
Have a VERY Happy Halloween all!!!!
