We have a winner!!!!

Good Saturday to everyone!
I don't know if you've heard, but I WON TWO GIVE AWAYS!!!!!!
I just got a confirmation email for delivery this morning from Ramsin about the house sign I won from Rondell at Something Nice and Pretty.  I was going to wait and blog about it when the sign got here, but that won't be for a few weeks yet.  I was so excited about winning, it took a couple of days to settle down. If you've never visited with Rondell, go over and check out her sweet blog. She's been changing her house over to "white", and it's been an amazing transformation.
Then....I just found out last night that my blog was chosen in Sandi's give away at A Cottage Muse! Another totally unexpected blessing! I've been a follower of A Cottage Muse for quite some time, and Sandi has been an encouragement to me ever since I started reading her blog.
As Diana said, "I'm over the moon"!
Since I've been busy with a new member of our household, I didn't get to read any blog posts from yesterday.....Good thing Laurie emailed me about A Cottage Muse last night!
Now for the reason I've been busy.....
 We haven't decided on a name as of yet...but this is our new family member. He's a chocolate toy Poodle.
He's been a little maniac today! Running, barking, and playing all morning.
He did very well last night(his first night home). He got up at 4:30 a.m. to go outside, then up at 7:30 this morning to eat. He's been all over the place since then!!
Our Yorkie, Maggie, was killed two summers ago. She was 15 years old, and her health was not good. Unfortunately, my daughter Kelly backed over Maggie in the was traumatic for all of us.
Mr. Lakehouse still has a hard time with the loss.

He seems to be doing okay today, however. Last night was quite sad...lots of memories.
The new baby and Mr. Lakehouse are pretty fond of each other already, I think things will work out just fine. HOWEVER, the name Orville will not be considered....ugh.
So......I would like to thank Rondell, and Sandi for the wonderful give aways. I will be posting about all of the gifts as soon as they arrive!
Enjoy your weekend.
Smooches to all.


  1. Awwww! Your new little boy is just darling! Who could resist that sweet face? Can't wait to hear what you decide to name him. And I remember all too well those wild and crazy puppy days! I'm so sorry for the loss of your Maggie two years ago. My first cocker spaniel was also named Maggie, and I lost her to cancer 8 1/2 years ago, and I never really got over it. So I know that your new little guy will really help to heal your heart! Congrats on the wins, how exciting!
    hugs to you, my sweet friend!!

  2. Oh, How Sweet ~ My Cat Elliott would have fun with that little one~ I think Hersey is a perfect name, lol....
