Gordon and a Giveaway!!.....:)

So let's be honest. We all have that deep dark thing called- a celebrity crush. My hubby's is J Lo. Uh huh, moving on. I have a thing for this guy- Gordon Ramsay. Something about the fact that he could cook me the most amazing dinner sprinkled with his favorite spice- the f word. I know a lot of people find him offensive or whatever, but I think his explosive expletive ridden rants are what shows his total passion for what he does. And I love that :)

Or is it just that I have a thing for blonde's with wrinkles?
Whatever it is, to celebrate my outing of my celebrity crush.. I'm giving away this uh-mazing cutting board. Made by the equally amazing peeps over at William Rogers Wood Products :)
Yes it's our family business, and yes this cutting board was made by my very handsome very talented (and single) son Ryne. He makes all our wood counter tops! This lovely is African Mahogany and measures a sweet 12 x 24 x 2 1/4 :)
So to win this baby here's what you gotta do:

No, I'm not going to make you do 5000 things to get it (don't you hate that?). I'm a simple gal:)

Just become a follower, then leave me a comment about your celebrity crush!


I'll announce the winner Tuesday May 3rd:)




And hey, if you're in the market for some fab wood tops? Give us a call :) 480.985.2560 we ship everywhere:)

  3. I've had a crush on George Strait since I was about 8 years old. He has been affectionately known as Georgy Baby all this time. I always thought I would marry a singing cowboy, but instead I ended up with a desert rat with facial hair...seriously.

  4. We like the same kind of blonde men I think. My celeb crushes are Daniel Craig and Anderson Cooper...they are divine!!

    Of course I'm a follower...who wouldn't be...you have a great blog!

  7. I should have "followed" your cute butt long ago...My celebrity crush is Robert Pattinson. OMR he is Edward Cullen for crying out loud. You know? The perfect vampire. He is also starting this week a hunk, durrty love interest of Reese Witherspoon in Water for Elephants. YUMMY.

    Love the cutting board. Kudos on the son's business. Everyone should "LIKE" this post on Facebook to spread the word about William Rogers Wood Products.

    xoxo,

    Alison

  8. Do you want to know who my family thinks I have a crush on or who I REALLY have a crush on? My family thinks it's Sylvester Stallone..the early years.."YO Laurie!" The real answer is Adam Levine from Maroon 5..his eyes are beautiful!

    I've always wanted a cutting board like that!!!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Love that cutting board!

    I totally get your Gordon Ramsey thing because I have had celeb "crushes" on Simon Cowell and Jesse James, but I also love a classic like Richard Gere!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I would have to admit that my crush is on, the Rock, he is a hot potato.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hands down...Tyler Florence on the Food Network. I love watching him talk about food and he seems so down to earth too. Would love to give the cutting board a loving home in my kitchen! :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. My celebrity crush is David Beckham. He is sexy cute and plays my all time favorite sport soccer! I am obsessed with watching soccer on TV, watching my daughter play and also going to games!

    Love your blog but just became a follower!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I think I would have to say Dwayne Johnson. I have this thing for taller guys. I love his smile and his "Rock eye brow". He so is darn handsome. I can't believe how old Ryne is, he is also very handsome.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I love cutting boards!!! I have a "thing" for them. My celeb crush is Anthony Bourdain. He is also a fan of the f word and he's bad, very, very, bad. I love it!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Celebrity crush...mine changes. Often. :)
    Currently I'm crushing on James Marsden. He's a cutie!

    (I'm also crushing on your house. Is that ok??)

    ReplyDelete
  16. That is difficult- I would have to say the rugged attractiveness of Sam Elliot or the passion and talent of Sting is attractive- hmmm. I am thinking of more and more now- maybe I DO have more celebrity crushes than I thought originally.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh, I have been meaning to follow your blog and now this is the perfect reminder opportunity! LOVE that cutting board - I have a maple Boos Block and have used and loved it for years.

    And how *very* convenient, because when we redo our kitchen here in the next few years, I want wood countertops, and now I have an awesome local source! Just too perfect.

    OK, I have a few celebrity crushes. I have loved Johnny Depp since I was a kid, but I also have a thing for Clive Owen and Rufus Sewell (if you don't know he is, well, just do yourself a favor and look him up!) I like them dark and intense. :)

  18. I never had a celebrity crush in high school (I thought all my girl friends were crazy), but then in college I started watching NCIS and I now how a full blown celebrity crush on Mark Harmon. There is something about a witty, sarcastic, smart man with a gun that is AWESOME.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Pick me! Pick Me! I need a new cutting board. This one is so beautiful I may want to frame it!

    Have you always had followers? How unobservant am I?! I have read your blog forever...almost!

    My crush is much younger than I am...is that kosher? Ian Somerhalder of "The Vampire Diaries" is adorable! (He was "Boone" in season one of "Lost")His eyes are gorgeous and his personality makes me like a not so nice vampire! Ne is also an animal lover. Gotta love that!

    ReplyDelete
  20. So many to choose from ;) but since the Master's was just last week I will say Adam Scott the Australian PGA golfer.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Wow. That board is beautiful. It would be hard to take the first cut on it!

    My celebrity crush? Probably John Mayer. That is one pretty man.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I am a follower who looks forward to every Tuesday. I have a couple of crushes....Bryan Ferry of Roxy Music fame and George Strait. They are as different as night and day...hmmmm. Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wow! I'm always looking for a Good cutting board.
    My celebrity crush is George Clooney.
    I'm you follower!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Well, I certainly feel the need to fallow your blog, as I am your cousin, and I barely know you! (hopefully I will be in AZ this year, and maybe we can remedy that!)
    Celebrity crush would have to be... hummm... that is difficult, I want to say Johnny Depp... but then he is everyone's crush... Marilyn Manson? (maybe when I was younger)... Peter Murphy (yeah, I still love him...) My friend Richard??? (he's kind of a rock star). Its difficult cousin of mine... I may have to get back to you on this one! :_)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Wow.. Too hard to just pick one! But I think my top two are Gerrard Butler, or Jensen Ackles (from the cw's Supernatural). Both are ruggedly handsome, could handle just about ANY situation came their way, and they look good doin it!

    Added bonus: Mr Butler has a LAW DEGREE! So he could literally get you out of any real life situation too! hehe

  26. I love your blog. We used to live in Mesa, and I have been fascinated with what you are doing with your classic bungalow. You have a great talent!

    We also lived in Africa for 3 years and love the African Mahogany chopping board!

    For my "celebrity"--I am fascinated with Emma Thompson...her diverse talents and her captivating personality.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Johnny Depp will always hold a special place in my heart. Johnny fits that corny phrase perfectly. "He's like a fine wine. He just gets better with age."

  28. LOVE your home and your decorating style and LOVE your adorable way of sharing. I totally remember you from Mountain View and have been secretly admiring your blog for sometime now but have never become a follower. However, the time has come for me to come out of hiding because I just can't help but picture that beautiful cutting board on my kitchen counter. They are a dark granite of browns, black and greys and your cutting board would really add some much needed warmth.
    So, my celebrity crush is Simon Baker. Love The Mentalist and Love him!

  29. Definitely Brad Pitt. Always will be.

    Love the cutting board!

  30. I will always be a fan of Reese Witherspoon. A friend used to work in development at Children's Hospital of Los Angeles and told me that Reese is one of the only celebrities who drove herself to the hospital, came in through a back door and visited with patients' and their families without any cameras or entourage to capture it on film for publicity. Rather than visit the children's cancer ward, where most celebrities beeline, she asked where she could make the biggest impact. My friend suggested the children's burn unit, which is often overlooked. I will always admire this woman and I think she's adorable and classy, too!

  31. That cutting board is stunning!! Lurve it:)

    Celeb crush: Kenny Chesney {as long as he keeps his hat on} and Jason Hamilton {Texas Rangers...amazing testimony and awesome baseball player}

  34. Hello there! and greetings from Guatemala! Yep, you too are read in this small country, right in the middle of the American Continent. The wonders of the Internet world :o)
    I "discovered" you thanks to Lindsey's Better After blog. I love your style!, in both your writing and your decorating! Love your house! You certainly changed it for the WAY better! It's a lovely home, and a gorgeous house. Congrats.
    So besides of following you, and admiring your work, I would love to participate in the giveaway!, if the distance to Guatemala is not a trouble. If country-limitations are an issue, I at least get to let the world know that I LOVE Joaquin Phoenix!! :o)) There is something about those eyes, and deep voice. Or maybe it's just something about brunettes with green eyes ;o)
    have a great day!

  35. Hi there! New to your blog and loving it. What a cool family business and a fun giveaway. I enjoyed reading everyone's "crushes". My heart belonged to Robert Pattinson until I watched Limitless and now I have to say (until the release of Breaking Dawn), Bradley Cooper is the man. Have a great weekend!
