I'm gonna be in a gaggle!!

I entered and won the "Come to the Cottage" Contest at Gina's place:
The Shabby Chic Cottage, near Nashville, TN!!

I was selected to join Gina and four other blogger/decorator/chicks:
and ChaCha at Sit Relax and Read

to stay in her guest cottage, from July 20-24th, 
and makeover her 2 teen-aged daughters' (Hi, LaLa and Bre!) rooms!

You can read my entry post, I Dream of Gina, HERE.

Excited can't even begin to describe how I feel!
I have never met any of these ladies, in person, so I am sure there is going to be a lot of honking happening!
And eating, and laughing, and painting, and building, and eating, and laughing, and painting.

Thank you to those of you who left me a sweet comment or emailed me wishing me well!

You know I will be taking you along and taking lots of pictures.

Got any good traveling/packing/flying advice for me?

(Just practicing!)
