My Winnings!!

Here's how it started..this box was HUGE!!

Don't I look oh so dapper in my 
pj pants, cami, sweater & the great apron??

I wore my apron all night.. and at bedtime
Rich said..
You're something else

Really, what do you mean

How many women wear their apron all night?

Well it's comfy!! Has a lil front pouch, tis quilted and
just so CUTE

Thank you dear Robin,I had chocolate last night
 I enjoyed my Winter Blend Starbucks
coffee this AM

Dr Jones said Friday is ok for Chemo.
gave me a sweet hug
 & told me I could come
in anytime..even just to talk..
He's so caring..I do have a special place in my
heart for him....
Next time I see him, I'll prolly be bald..eeekk
but he said..
it'll grow back and be curly..
don't worry.. you'll make it through all this.

I start taking my pre-chemo meds tomorrow
I must say I'm SKEERED of chemo
but I'll be there..making it a fun day..and
Rich is going too, he's ALWAYS good for 
laughs..God bless him. I'll say this again,
I can't imagine having cancer
with anyone but Rich and GOD.

  1. I'm so glad you like it!! I couldn't figure out how to loop the strap through the buckle I hope you did...LOL! It looks wonderful!!

  2. Deena,
    you are prepared in your heart and mind... and God will take care of the rest... after all He is sending Rich with you to make you smile and laugh!!
    and He is laying it upon the rest of our Hearts to keep you in prayer all day Friday!!!
    {{Love and Hugs}}

    You look adorable in that apron... did you cook something up in your dream (since you wore it all night)?

  3. Good Afternoon Deena,
    Oh my goodness, the Apron looks so good on you. It does look like you. Did you cook up a storm last night? LOL. Hey, if it's comfy, then I say wear it all night. I'm so glad you won Robin's Giveaway and glad you loved all the goodies she sent you. I hope you ate some of that Chocolate for me. LOL. And did you drink some of that wonderful coffee for me this morning? LOL. I am so glad that Rich is going with you to keep you company and to make you laugh. You have a wonderful hubby indeed. I loved the part where you said about going thru cancer with Rich and GOD. AMEN SISTER!!!! Those are the only 2 to be with during this time. Of course, you have us all out here praying for you all the time. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

    Love & Hugs,
    Karen H.

  4. Hello Queen Bodacious Deena. You are looking fabulous in yoour pretty new apron. What fabulous giveaway prizes you won.
    Just remember 'Bald is Beautiful' at least that's what my husband who is slowly balding tells me!!LOL
    Take care and with Rich by your side making you laugh time will pass more quickly.

  5. Hi Deena, what a fun give away!
    There is nothing better then a pretty apron to wear while indulging in chocolate!
    I am glad you won!!!

    You are such an are so strong and beautiful!
    I have such admiration for you!

    My thoughts and prayers are with you sweetpea!
    Hugz, Dolly

  6. oh how cute are you?!!!!


  7. You sure are cute in all your new stuff. My warp sense of humor wanted to say rags but I did not wish to offend. Thanks for laughing at my feeble attempt to make you laugh during chemo. Big Sis tells me to be careful all the time as she is afraid others will not get my sense of humor.
    I am happy that you got the go ahead so you can complete this and not have to put it off.
    Mother was beautiful when she went bald and you will be too. You might even like it so well you may start shaving your head when the locks return. But my BGF never lost any of her long hair and it is as thick as it ever was.
    Peace be with you

  8. My dear Bodacious, You indeed look lovely in that apron. Can't wait to see it. How wonderful to have so many friends who care so much. You are blessed, my little one.

  9. Love the apron! And chocolate is always good!

  10. Glad that Rich is going with you on Friday, Deena.

    Dr. Jones sounds nice.

    The apron was cute ! That was nice of Robin - glad youy won !

    And your kitchen is VERY pretty !


  11. CHURCH talks about APRONS!!! Hey you! I wear my aprons to bed! Yes I have and do. I have collected old antique aprons for years..the advertising grocery and butcher ones too. I also make the most beautiful aprons that look ancient and I love, love them. My husband and I were going out a few years ago and I still had one of my favorite collectors on, a blue one too and he said to me "I am so glad you are going to wear your apron out." I said, "Are you kidding?" and he said, "No, I have always thought aprons are so sexy." SAY WHAT?! My husband is 8 years younger than I am and we have been married 21+ years now, he's not 50 yet....and he thinks aprons are sexy?! Ok, go for me....I have worn aprons everywhere for years.
    AND, I have made aprons for some women you would know who have also liked wearing them...had one friend who loved her work aprons and also used to tell me how wonderful they looked hanging on her clothesline while her geese were trying to get them down...they were jealous of her aprons..I believe her name is Netty...ask her about about her aprons....she rides her bike around town in them and hikes them up with a clothespin! How cool is that?! So girl, you wear that gorgeous blue flowered apron cause it does look so fine on you! There is just something so comforting about wearing one to bed when you are feeling scared too...try'll see.
    Everybody out of the closet wearing your aprons....we know there's more of us!

  12. Deena ! you are a sweetheart ! God is going to give you the "peace that passes all understanding" I know that !! I have a friend that has her hair growing back after chemo and it is just gorgeous !!! it is curly and so thick and pretty !
    hugs and prayers,

  13. Hi Deena, thanks for stopping by my blog, your is great. I see you are going through chemo, I'll add you to my prayer list and look forward to coming back:>)

  14. Very cute! Happy you have Rich. And while chemo is not the most fun thing, you have a great attitude and you WILL get through it!


  15. Oh Lady Di

    I get your humor & Robing would too..
    it so makes me laugh.

    Maybe I'll be luckY???? and keep my hair..but
    I was kinda looking forward to some curls ....

  16. Deena,you look so gorgeous,apron only adds to that. Hope you are enjoying your coffee and chocolate.

    Your doctor sounds so caring and wonderful.
    good thoughts coming your way for you chemo treatments.

  17. Achewwww! I gotta cold.

    Just stopped by to say Hi!

    You wear that to bed? LOL

  18. Congratulations on your awesome winnings! What a fun box to receive and to open up! I love that apron! It is so cute and it does look marvelous on you! Enjoy your coffee and goodies!

    I will be praying for you. Oh, I hope you don't get too sick from the chemo. Bless your heart Deena.

    Hugs, Sharon

  19. All of your goodies are just fantastic! I just went shopping for a new apron too, and I can't wait for it to arrive! So I understand you wanting to wear it so much!

    I will be thinking of you on Friday, sending hugs your way! Toodles...

  20. I think you should wear your apron to chemo -- think of the comfort!!

    And NO NO NO NO oh NO YOU DON'T!!! You will NOT be skeered of chemo -- I say so!!!!

    Sweetie, it is nothing to be afraid of. It's not a picnic with champagne and caviar, but it is so "okay" and the nurses will be taking good care of you. Think of it as "love", think of it in as many positive ways as you can -- and go in there with your head held high and a smile on your face.

    You MAY NOT allow cancer to have this toe hold -- remember doing that thing as kids "we don't stop for nobody"?!? Well you march in there and you keep telling yourself "I don't stop for cancer".

    Make it a "good" day with all the things you love...your doctor is right -- you're going to do this. I know it!!

  21. Just a little note to let you know that some of us have traveled this path before you and that it is safe.When all is said and done you will look back on it as another challenge in life.Gather strength from wherever you will and set forth.
    I will be thinking of you.
    I think the outfit is charming!!!!

  22. Deena,

    What a wonderful box of goodies. Congratulations on the win. The apron is lovely and looks terrific on you. I don't blame you for wearing it to bed. LOL I can just imagine what Rich was thinking. Isn't life fun?

    Take care, Deena. When you get a minute drop over to my blog. I have a little something for you.

    I will be praying for you while you continue your journey.

    Love and blessings,

  23. I've been thinking of you and will be praying for you on Friday forsure! I know you will do well. So many people are lifting you up.
    Hey, what a GREAT gift box.....I have an apron EXACTLY like that one and I LOVE it. Everything in the box looks fuuuuun!

    Be blessed,
