a cupcake giveaway

i want to give you a chocolate cupcake, well a chocolate sock cupcake in honor of the arrival of spring, but most notably my chickens! they should be here saturday and i can not wait. we plan to get three pullets, so chicken names are big talk in the house. well, mostly big talk for me, i can't seem to let it go. i told my kids they can name one and i get to name the other two. they have already decided on abby for their chick. i love that choice. me, i can not make up my mind. i do like people names rather than cutesy names like potpie or dumplin'. i lean towards names such as dolly, martha and hattie, even blanche. this has become as important to me as naming my human children was. now where did i put my old baby name book?

anyway, how about some name suggestions? if you will submit your favorites via comments, i will randomly pick someone to win my sock-it-to-me cupcake. it can be displayed or worn. it is simply made with ladies socks. i also plan to send a few more sneaky surprises along with it. come on and play with me. get cracking.

p.s don't forget to leave me a way to contact you. if you twitter and rt my giveaway, come back here and tell me. it will give you another chance to win. this is open to my u.s. friends only. i love all of you, but international shipping is crazy. contest ends sunday.
