Win 2 tickets to Cleveland’s Great Big Home and Garden Show, Feb. 8-16

Today’s a big day in the Hicken households.  Scott’s parents and grandmother are coming to Cleveland! Not next year, not next month, not next week. Today, we gain new neighbors.

With a new house comes the fun of new home improvement and gardening projects. There’s even a tree house in the backyard that has Scott’s dad’s name all over it.

This week’s giveaway couldn’t be better themed because I have a pair of tickets to The Great Big Home and Garden Show for you!

My favorite part of previous Great Big Home and Garden Shows are the themed gardens

  62. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any
    widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my
    newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for
    a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.

    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your
    blog and I look forward to your new updates.
