Welcome New Followers!

Saturday, February 20, 2010 Posted by Rita A

Hello to all my new followers. I am so happy to meet you. Grab a cup of coffee, relax and have fun. A little about me and my blog. I like to find recipes to share them with you. I like to tell stories. I will have the occasional Soapbox rant if it is something so outrageous. Of course I have some great new product reviews. I am always finding One 2 Try! Check out the current giveaways for your chance to win fabulous goodies provided by the sponsors. I blog just about everyday. Stay updated with a subscription to your email, sign up on the right hand side. I share so many good things, I would not want you to miss a moment.

One 2 Try is my happy place. Everyone is welcome. To me it is all about sharing. Speaking of are a few things that you may not know about me.

--I grew up in New Jersey but moved to Southern California with my family when I was 11 years old. I live 8 miles from the beach and 10 miles from Disneyland.

--I am a big Elvis Fan. I have recently started a collection of Elvis Memorabilia. It is growing nicely.

--I love to read Harlequin Blaze romance stories. The steamier the better.

--I enjoy visiting the casinos here in California or occasional trips to Vegas or Laughlin. I mostly play the penny slot machines. I do not have a big gambling budget but I like to have fun. I also play bingo.

--My favorite music artist (besides Elvis) is Garth Brooks. I have always said one day I will meet him personally so if anyone knows him please let him know I am such a big fan.

--I also enter sweepstakes with my biggest win ever was a trip to the Wynn in Las Vegas. Fabulous. My dream prize would be a new car.

--I always choose chocolate!

There you have it. A little about me. From the bottom of my heart - welcome.

    You grew up in NJ and moved to southern Cal? Does that mean there's hope for me (stuck in the snow in southern NJ)?

    I don't know Garth Brooks personally, but my Uncle and Aunt attend the same church he does and have met him. Another relative of mine used to design t-shirts for him when he was starting his career. He is one of my favorites as well.

    I grew up 20 minutes from Disneyland and about 20 minutes from the beach. I miss California a lot...especially in the wintertime :)

    I live about 10 miles from Garth and he comes in Target a fairly good amount of time. He's well-known in the store.
