Happy Blogiversary to ME!!!

How time doth fly my friends. It flies very, very fast. How can it be that two years ago today I finally gave in to the pressure and started this crazy thing called my blog. Sometimes it seems like I have always been blogging. I can’t remember what life was like before the blog and I started going steady, when I started to tell it my deep dark secrets. Such as my fondness for The Housewives of Orange County. I hang my head in shame.

It sort of sounds like a marriage doesn’t it. Only I can’t cuddle up to the blog at night and warm my feet on it. That is what I have HHBL for.

I have learned some things in the last several years of blogging

1. Persistence: I try to blog at least 5 days a week. Sometimes I don’t want to. Sometimes I am just not sure when I get up what I might say on that day. Sometimes I have blog posts lined up like planes at O’Hare airport. You just never know. But, to have any kind of returning readership I must blog routinely.
2. I have a unique “voice” which I am learning to run with and like. I have a way of putting my words and thoughts together that makes me smile and laugh at times, makes me cry at others.
3. The friends that I have made in the bloggy world are precious to me. I would never have found you all if I didn’t have a blog.
4. ANYTHING is fodder for a blog post. I even have HHBL calling me to tell me things that he thinks I should blog about. It is an addiction.
5. You never know who reads your blog on a regular basis (Hi Donna and John!).

And so, to celebrate my blogiversary I am having a little give away. I am so scared. Be nice and participate. Make me feel happy.

What am I giving away to you? Well, you know that I love food. I love it more than is good for me. More than my hips and bahookie can stand. One of my favorite things are these

What are these you are asking yourself? Well, these are Wolferman’s English Muffins and they are divine. We became addicted to these one year when my SIL send them to us for Christmas. There are 14 different flavors. You can toast them. You can top them with delicious things. You can dream about them.

I am wanting to give someone some of these. I am wanting to give away 6 packages of these to some lucky person. Please let me do it…..PLEASE!!!

So here is what we are gonna do. You have several ways to get your name in the Muffin Pot. The giveaway lasts from right now until Saturday 2/20 at 6p (EST). For each of the things that you do below you will get a “ticket” thrown in the pot. The more tickets you have the better your chances.

1. Leave a comment telling me what Wolferman’s flavors look delicious. 
2. Look to your right –> that way. “Follow” the blog, leave a comment that you have done so. If you are already a follower you get an extra ticket.
3. Follow me on Twitter and “tweet” the giveaway, leave a comment that you have done so. 
4. Link to this giveaway on your blog, leave a comment here that you have done so.

Oh, think about all those lovely English Muffins. Yummy!!! Now get commenting!  


  1. Oh, pick me, pick me!!

    MAN, those English muffins look goood! Okay, I will do whatever it takes to win a package...

    1) Flavors that look delicious to me, which is difficult, because they ALL look delicious: 1910 Original Recipe, Apple Orchard, Cheddar Cheese, Cherry Jubilee, Chocolate Chip, Multi-Grain & Honey, San Francisco Sourdough, Wild Maine Blueberry & Maple Almond!

    2) I'm already following you. :)

    3) Sorry, not a tweeter. :(

    4) Sorry, no blog. :(

    Wish me luck! Excellent idea, btw. Glad you picked such a worthwhile prize.

  2. I would leave a comment if were on the "Places I visit way too often" list! Hurumpf. Easily changed, my friend....easily changed.

  3. "Anonymous" - done my friend. I hang my head in shame that I didn't have it on there because we know I love that place.

  4. I will gladly let you give me some delicious English Muffins! Your 1-5 so so so true. I have people say to me all the time "I wish my life were that exciting." IT IS. You just have to have your eyes open!!!

    So thankful for our blog-friendship!

    This is tough! Cheddar cheese (obviously), Honey and Oats, MultiGrain, SunDried Tomato & Herb, and Blueberry. That's 5... I's want to Cheddar ones!

  5. I'm a follower via Google Reader.

  6. Heading over to Tweet - check your @replies.

  7. I'm a follower so that's one chance, and for a second chance I'll say the cheddar cheese and cranberry flavors look good. If I win, I'll let you surprise me with other flavors!

  8. I haven't had a Wolferman's English Muffin in 16 years...that's a long time. I used to get them regularly when we lived in MA. The blueberry are great, but I'm fond of the original...that's just the way I am, I like the plain stuff best.
    But, there's no way you can send these to Spain...just go to sleep knowing that you've given me a good food memory instead!

  9. I enjoyed these yummy muffins once when my sister sent us some. I prefer the savory ones...cheddar and sun dried tomatoe.

  10. I totally agree, I blog about the most random things.

    I don't think I've ever seen such unique english muffins before! My first reaction were the savories like anything cheesy and tomato and jalapeno but then I thought, hey I could eat half a cheddar and half an apple together! Because I'm weird like that.

    Awesome giveaway!

  11. 1.So many Flavors DOOO look delicious! San Francisco Sourdough. Cranberry Citrus! Wild Maine Blueberry! Cinnamon Raisin. Cinnamon Raisin and Cinnamon Raisin! Yayyyy!
    2. Already a follower and ever so glad I came over to read today!
    3. Retweeted. (That was a new one for me...)
    4. Yep, mentioned at my blog. Hope you get lotsa comments!
    (And I hope I win me some muffins!)

  12. 1)Yummmmy! Ok ~ I think cheddar, cranberry citrus and sundried tomatoe and herb look delicious.
    2)Already a "follower" ~ love ya!
    3)Don't do twitter
    4)I would link you on my blog ~ but I don't know how to. Explain and I will!!!


  13. Debbie, I was so surprised to see our name in your blog today! Wow--we feel so special! I have never heard of Wolferman's flavors-they must not be in our area. They sound abslolutely wonderful but I don't twitter or tweet (or anything in between). I will be fortunate just to leave a comment! :)

  14. Happy Blogiversary, Debbie! I think all the muffin flavors look awesome, but I'm drawn to: sun dried tomato & herb, multi grain & honey, sweet harvest wheat, wild Maine blueberry, cranberry citrus, honey & oats.

  15. Of course I am an ol' follower :) -Tammy
