Under 300 Followers Link Party

Many hugs go out to Amie at Pinkapotamus for choosing me  to co-host this week's blog hop! I am so excited! 
I can't wait to meet many new bloggy friends!

Hey Pink Hippos!  It's Thursday once again and time for your FAVORITE Thursday Blog hop..
Hosted by Me, Amie @ Pinkapotamus
Lelanie @ To Sew With Love
Now before I introduce our Newest Co-host, Lisa, I would like to share some fun stuff going on Here at Pinkapotamus..
First you can sign up for October Overhauling which you can find out more about HERE and
then a super fun GIVEAWAY from my friend Kate HERE

Hi Bloggy (future) Friends! I am Lisa from akawest, a blog where I share my love of sugar, spray paint, and laughing at life, while inching towards adulthood in my forties. I am the mother of two grown kiddos, and the wife of one very patient man, whom I often coerce into doing fun projects that involve saws, or any sort of measuring, 'cause if precision is involved, you can count me out!

My talents include surviving marathon thrift store shopping, gluing a zillion buttons onto a mirror frame,  sprinting through Disney World
and dressing like a People of Walmart character.

I hate cold weather, but since moving to Florida, 
I am no longer a witch, and have stopped blogging about shivering in my house, and cursing the snow.

Please join me in the fun, where I prove that messily iced cookies taste as good as prettier treats.


  1. I love your introduction. Hilarious! Glad to call you my bloggy friend!


  2. Hi Lisa! I'm so grateful to Amy and the pink hippo blog party for introducing me to you. You cracked me up! I am so glad to be following you now and look forward to more funny posts from you in the future. By the way, I am all about messy treats. I never can get something to look pretty, but everyone eats them up just fine! Come on by and get to know me some time: http://www.sewingourlifetogether.blogspot.com/p/a-lil-about-me.html

  3. Thanks for co-hosting this week and inviting me to your blog. Can't wait to see what you have next! I am a new follower.

  4. This is such a great idea. I didn't link up {per the rules} but did visit some of the other blogs to check them out.

  5. I laughed so hard I cried about you making your DH cut and saw and measure. He's a good boy!

    And I love you to pieces.

    This sounds like a fun blog event!


    Sheila :-)
