Ask Me Anything…

**Reminder about the E-Mealz Giveaway!
Right now, entries are very low so there is a great chance of winning! Hope on over and enter today! It ends tomorrow evening! **
My sister and I had a fabulous time at the New Kids on the Block/Backstreet Boy concert last night but we got home too late for me to write a post on it and share some pics.
So, I’ve been wanting to do one of these posts of quite some time and thought it would be perfect for today.

Have you ever wondered something about me or a post I shared or just wanted to ask a random question?

Well, this is your opportunity to ask me ANYTHING!
Seriously… WHATEVER is on your mind!

Have you had a question about:

-Me
-My life
-A tutorial
-Thrifty Finds
-Blogging
-Recipes

ANYTHING?!

Then now is your chance!

Leave me your question in the comment section or if you don’t want to do that, you can just email me directly: allison.michelena@gmail.com

I will then compile your questions into one large post.

Sound good?!

So get your thinking caps on and bring on those questions! 🙂

Back from Creative Estates

Hi All!
I am back from Creative Estates.

I had a fabulous time and I will be sharing all about it on Wednesday.
So stay tuned!

I hope that you all had a lovely weekend.

I saw that there were lots of awesome ideas linked up to last week’s party!

Hope you guys had fun partying while I was gone! Hate that I missed it!

But hopefully, things will be back to normal for awhile at least, until I get completely stressed out about our move! Blah!

Here’s the Deal…

Travis and I had a military ball last night so I was unable to finish going though all the fabulous links for Feature Friday.

I’m now headed out of town so as soon as I can, I will finish all the links and post today’s features!
Hopefully, I will have it up by tonight.

Sorry everyone!

Thanks so much for linking up though! I’ve made it through half the links and there were many fabulous ideas shared in those so I can’t wait to see what else you shared.

Happy Friday everyone!

New Features and Changes

Before I begin, I just wanted to remind everyone about the Hiya Luv Handmade Giveaway!
If you haven’t entered for the $25 shop credit, hop on over and do it!

Also, I wanted to let you all know about a little something Gina is doing over at her blog on March 21st. It’s called Take Your Blogger to Work Day and it will be so much fun!


It will be a fun blog hop to get to know other bloggers better and find out what they do in “Real” life.
If you’d like to participate let me know or you can contact Gina.

Ok- Now onto the New Features and the changes that will be happening. They aren’t big changes so don’t worry!!

You may have noticed, maybe, that I added some “Social” buttons in the top right corner, just above my advertising. I wanted to make sure to point these out and then let you all know what each were.


You probably recognize this one. It will take you to A Glimpse Inside’s Facebook Fan page.


This one will take you to A Glimpse Inside’s Twitter Page.


I created a new page for my blog buttons. So if you are looking for my blog button, the Featured button, or the Catch a Glimpse Party button you will click on this button.


If you’d like to follow me on StumbleUpon, you can find me with this button.


I’m on Pinterest as well so if you like to see what I’m pinning and follow my pin boards click on this button.


Like to Subscribe to A Glimpse Inside and get each post in your email. Then this is the button for you!


And lastly, click on the little envelope if you need to email me.

Hope you all find my new social buttons useful!

One of the changes that will take place soon, is that my blog buttons will not be located on my sidebar anymore. I wanted to get rid of some of the “clutter” in my sidebars so now that I have the little button button to take you to my button page (that’s a whole lot of buttons), then I don’t want them in my sidebar anymore.
I won’t get rid of them right away but wanted to give you all a head’s up that they are officially moving!

Change 2- another small on- I kept my Facebook Fan Page tab, but just moved it to the bottom of the right column. So just in case you like to use it to check out what I am posting on my Facebook Page, the just scroll down a little farther.

Change 3- As time goes one, you may notice that some things disappear or change position in my sidebars. It probably won’t be until closer to April but just wanted to give you a head’s up on that as well.

One’s blog is never complete is it? Just like one’s home.


Now a few questions for you all…

– Did you enjoy the blogging tips post I shared last week and would you be interested in more posts like that? If so, what kind of topics would you like discussed?

– What would you like to see more of on A Glimpse Inside? More recipes, crafts, more about my life? What? Let me know!

Write in the comments what you want or send me an email.

I hope you all have a fabulous Wednesday!
HOPEFULLY, if all goes well later tonight, I will get some time to craft and ACTUALLY share something for Catch a Glimpse Thursday. Fingers crossed! 🙂

Our New BIG baby

Back at the end of the year, we went and ordered a new GMC Terrain and it FINALLY arrived!
It is awesome but I was also very sad to see my little Saturn go that I’ve had for so long. We knew we needed a larger vehicle and my Saturn was starting to rebel a little so we knew it was time to trade her in.

So would you like to see our new BIG, Handsome Baby?!
Of course you do! 🙂

Here’s the outside:
We went all out with it. Figured if we had to order one we might as well get the works.
So we got the larger wheels and the chrome package (granted I don’t think Travis would have had it any other way).

This thing really is a beast! BIG change from my little Saturn.

Straight on shot.


Back end- obviously! lol

Up close shot of the color- Cyber Gray Metallic

Now, let’s head inside.

Looking into the backseat area.

We decided to get the entertainment package so here is the DVD player.

And we also got the cargo package which include a cargo net and a cover to hide anything you have in the back area.

We LOVE our new baby!

Congrats and Post Update

I just wanted to say Congratulations to the Green Pay Packers!!

I was so happy that they won the Super Bowl! They played great and deserved the win!

Also, I just wanted to let everyone know that I updated my New Life for Thrift Finds post.
Many of you asked what we used to glue them together. I added that into that post but I will also just say it here.

We used something called “The Amazing Goop.” We bought it at Lowe’s and it was in the glue/epoxy aisle and bought it in clear.
There are MANY other glues/epoxies out there that you can use also.

Hope this helps!!

See you Later!

We are officially away on our trip to TN for Christmas.

It is going to be a very short, quick round about all of Middle and East TN.
We’ll be in the car a lot…. yeah.

But one of the best parts about this trip is that right now, as you read this, we are officially watching this guy…
OH YEAH! That is totally Garth Brooks!
I am SO EXCITED!

He has been doing some Flood Relief Benefit Concerts in Nashville this past week and we are at his second to last show.
Trust me, there will be TONS of pictures taken and I will be singing at the top of my lungs the WHOLE TIME!
I will be sure to share a few pics with you all when I get back! 🙂

After the concert, we are staying with my parents for the night before we head down to Chattanooga to see Travis’ family. We’ll be there for two days and then head up to Knoxville Christmas morning to be with my side of the family for two more days.

So like I said… short, but long time in the car!

While I am gone, I will be having some guests here at A Glimpse Inside.
So PLEASE be sure to stop by still and give my guest some love! They’ll be sticking around for a week and a half. I’ll pop in every now and then though!
AND the linky parties will still be going on like normal. Just can’t promise I will get to visit everyone like normal.

So, I hope that each of you have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!
See you when I return! 🙂

ICE

Last week, we had a bit of an ice storm.
Travis went out and took some pictures of the ice covering everything in sight.
Here are a few of his shots from his two adventures.

A shot of our VERY frozen grass.
Poor Oscar could barely walk outside to go to the bathroom.

Icicles along our fence.

This is the ring that hangs our bird feeder.

Our new trees covered in ice but the color of them sure looks pretty shining through!

We have a elementary school near our house and they have a little nature trail so Travis walked through it for all these shots.
If you look close in this one, you can see the thorns on the branch sticking out.

Pretty berries covered in ice.




Shot of the fields across the road. Lots of frozen trees over there!


Tree all shiny in the sun.

One of the bird feeders on the nature trail.

Plants all covered.

The sun has finally started coming out the past couple days and we actually got above freezing so the ice is starting to melt away… FINALLY!
But it sure is pretty when the sun hit it all though!

One last thing… If you are doing a guest post for me while I am out of town (you know who you are), PLEASE have it to me by tomorrow so I can schedule it before I leave town!
THANKS!
