    • Oh yeah and I want the Double Chocolate one…yummy! If I win, I’ll have to let you know where to send it because I’m not sure if we’ll be moved yet.

    And decorating, definitely! I love to see the way you put a room together, particularly when hosting an event.

    Yummy! I’ll take double chocolate. I hope I get picked! Thanks Sara Jane

    I love your recipes, Sara Jane, and I love the decorating tips … I really enjoy seeing photos of what you’ve done decorating-wise and hosting-wise in your own home. I really do enjoy the variety on your blog, though, so I’m not really recommend you change anything!

    As for what I want more of? It’s a tie between your narratives and your decor blogs. Both are wonderful!

  9. Because, I work with 958 students every day of the week..”LET ME EAT CAKE.” You know I love strawberry…and I would love to see some more before and after creations:)

  10. I know I live with you and I get to see all of your wonderful ideas in person, and because I know that you’d “let me eat cake” in my pajamas in the living room, I suggest you put more of the before and after kind of thing on here, as well as all the great places you find print-outs and DIY stuff…OH, and, I think you should do a special once a week feature on Etiquette, reminding us all of what a true lady knows (because you know A LOT)and how to do it in a mondern way, style, twist…you would be so good at that! Happy 1st birthday!! Can’t wait to celebrate another year of great tips, treasures, treats and fun!
    …Aaaannnd if I had to choose one of those tasty confections I would go with the Strawberry Lemonade…love the colors! It sounds delish too!

  11. Because I was I slapped by a 90-year old woman and am the best Bingo caller this side of the Mississippi, LET ME EAT CAKE!!!

    Love you and your blog!! Happy blog birthday! I personally am a fan of your narratives, but then I love hearing your narratives in “real time” also! :)

    P.S. I prefer the caramel cake! :)

  12. Oh, dear. I forgot to state “LET ME EAT CAKE” in my comment. Oh, I do trust this will not disqualify my entry. (Although I would understand if I suffered such a fate as I did not follow directions.)

    (BTW, remember what you told me about Jesus several weeks ago? I bet you do! And I bet you know what you need to regarding my little oversight…)

  13. “LET ME EAT CAKE” I like the caramel cake. I love your blog! Especially the castle from Saint Patricks Day!!! My maiden name is MacKay. My grandfather was Scottish so I would love to go to Scotland too! Maybe one day …in the meantime I’ll travel with you online!

  14. “Let them eat cake”, as my cousin, Marie would have said before she lost her head. I, of course, love everything you do but most of all, I love your quick but deep wit. You are also very kind to old people, and old POP will be 62 the 5th of May, remember? And a War Vet to boot. (hint, hint) A Double Chocolate would do nicely since I see no Carrot Cake.

  15. Let me eat cake because G Money would be so happy if I did!! I would like to try the strawberry cake por favor! I enjoy seeing the recipes you make!

  16. LET ME EAT CAKE, dang it!
    I would like Scrawberry Lemonade and I like reading narratives and the before and after decorating things are my favsies.

    Comment by Susie — April 23, 2010 @ 3:17 pm

  17. LET ME EAT CAKE because….I need sugar to stay up all night and paint and recover the “unfortunate” chairs that I just bought for $20…then I could sit in them next week, while I eat a piece of yummy strawberry! HAPPY BLOG B-DAY!

    Comment by Sarah — April 23, 2010 @ 6:20 pm

  18. Let me eat cake, because I had no idea that my sweet friend, Sara Jane even had a blog (how did I miss that?), and I am a total blog-stalker!!! ;)I LOVE it, and will keep coming back for more classy, southern fun! Keep it up! (Oh, and I am so into the chocolate cake!)
