So I finally figure out how to see where people come to my site from. Thanks to Kristen over at We are THAT Family, who told me about "sitemeter". So I download this little handy dandy gadget, and I am off. So after clicking back and forth on it for hours several times, I finally get a hit from "Google". Oh what did "Google" bring me today. :o)

So I open the page and there are 5 items that list my blog url. So I look at them and think interesting what this little sitemeter can do. Then there is one that catches my eye.

Oh my goodness there is one from the Pioneer Woman! Did she search for me! Did she hear that I like to put mayonnaise on my face and she wants me to come to the Ranch and tell her all about it. So then I notice these three little words.............

"My sister Valarie"

Umm excuse me, what! This is what it looked like:

PW Home and Garden » Blog Archive » My Favorite Things: Fire King ...

So I proceed to click on above said link and this is what I found:

My sister Valarie ( both love to read your website. When I heard you mention something the other day about liking Jadite, I decided I had better go ahead and snag the jadite serving bowls that our Mama has. I really like Jadite. Valarie would have wanted them just because you like them. :)

I asked for them yesterday and Mama gave them to me. Whew…just in time for this post.

Poor Valarie will be outta luck. Poor thing. Not. :)

Thanks Ree!


Do you see what she did! She deliberately took that Jadite, knowing that I would probably want it. Now being the nice sister I am, I would have shared the Jadite with her, but nooooooo not Lisa Beth, she was keeping it for herself. I did not even know she liked the stuff. Yes I started really liking the stuff after seeing it on PW's blog, but I had seen it before and liked it then also. I just did not know what it was.

So anyway, now I don't feel nearly as bad as I did for posting a poll about her choice of footwear. Which by the way has been getting better ever since I put that poll up.

That is too funny! Are you even now?

It takes some time to collect good google referrals.

jennifer said...

Oh No she Di'nt. GIRL! You should have beat her to the punch! But good for you! You nailed her to the wall by blogging about her. And you put her feet in THOSE shoes on here as well. Wa-POW! Gotcha Sis.

OK, I don't really want to get in the middle of a 'thing' between you guys cause I know that you will both just turn on me and nail ME to the wall. "Cause I can say what I want to about my Sister, but you better leave her alone." Or so I've heard.

Have a Happy Weekend!

BTW is Jessica on a post graduation trip? Wondering how you all are doing now that the hoopla is over.


Lisa said...

Busted. :)

Rhea said...

Site Meter is awesome. I'm so glad you found it!

I can't believe your sister did that! What a stinker.

I LOVE Pioneer Woman. she is just awesome.

Razor Family Farms said...

Are you two related?? LOL! That sounds like something that my sister would do!

I read this and cracked up. Are you a big PW fan? I didn't realize. She's worked very hard on her blog.

Blessings to you and Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Will you be shopping or blowing things up in your backyard?



marky said...

LOL.. did your sister admit to it? B/C mine never would! Ha... funny post!

ValleyGirl said...

Haha, too funny! This is quite the entertaining place to hang out!

Well Behaved Krissy said...

this is EXACTLY why I do not search for anything or anyone on google. B/c I dont want to find if they've said anything that would make me want to punch them in the face. I actually had a terrible incident like that in December that made me stop blogging for a few months. I'm muuuuuchh more careful now.

Meg said...

YOU KNOW I love your sitemeter too...just wish I had such a kewl sister, lol!

Lisa said...

Oh. My. Goodness. Somebody called me kewl!

Yeehaw! Lisa

oh wait. I'll bet yeehaw ain't a kewl thing to say now is it?
