That’s what it feels like around here these days. I have 3 giveaways to tell you guys about! You heard me right- 3 different giveaways!!! How awesome is that?! It seems everyone is in the giving spirit this week.

First off, if you visit Bri at Such is My Life, she is giving away an undisclosed gift to the person who leaves the 200th comment on her 200th post. I frequently read her blog, as she has plenty to say and plenty for me to learn from with five little ones running around.

Second, Preppy Little Dress is having a contest for a surprise ‘preppy’ gift. Her blog is about all things shopping. Who couldn’t catch up on some good deals and steals. 😉

Finally, this VERY POST is MY 100TH POST!!!! Can you believe, I finally have made it that far. It’s a milestone in its own right!! So, yep I have decided to giveaway something, too!

The below items will go to one lucky winner….well, minus the baby.


Rules: Simply add a comment below, post a link on your blog (if you have one) and have a U.S. mailing address.

A winner will be chosen RANDOMLY. Oh, and if you post a link on your blog and a friend signs up to receive my blog feed by email (see sidebar) and mentions your name in the comments and they win, I will sweeten the pot and send you 30 note cards, too.

Whatcha’ waiting on…start commenting!!!

I thought I would give you guys a heads up that I may end up M.I.A. for the next few days. We are headed out of town and I have a ton of things to get accomplished before we leave. Although, I will have internet access while we are gone, I’m not for sure how much ‘me time’ or ‘internet time’ I will be able to scrape up. No fear though, when we return I’m sure I will have plenty to talk about since we are heading home to visit our families.

Oh, and for anyone that was wondering- I LOVE COMMENTS and just wanted to say thank you to all those wonderful folks that post comments, whether you do so once in awhile or are a regular. Each COMMENT makes my day- no matter how big, small, or how frequent. It’s sooooo much fun to hear how others relate to what I have to say and it helps me gain a greater perspective on my own thoughts and reflection. So again, thank you very much for brightening my day. 🙂

I almost forgot!! Garrett’s stats….oh, wait…I think I will hold off a few more days, least there might be a few others out there thinking about putting in a guess on his weight? His weight might surprise you guys and by the way, I won’t be upset if you guess less or more than what he actually weighs. I swear I did not type the above thank you to solicit more guesses (at least, not at the time I was typing it!)

One more thing!! I completely forgot- the contest that I was running last month, ended with 2 WINNERS (irregardless, if they were their were only 2 that entered it. Sniff. Sniff.) Those two folks were Becky and C. Beth, both fellow bloggers who’s sites you should check out. I have learned a great deal from these two ladies in my short six months as a mommy. Anyway, ladies- your prizes (a green bag and party products for 8 kids) are being shipped out TOMORROW. (That’s one of those tasks I have to complete before we leave!) As for anyone interested, C. Beth is running a contest of her own for a VERY cute little bear she made herself, so enter the contest and let her know I told you about the contest and we both might win a bear!!! Not a bad deal, indeed. So, what are you waiting for- go check her blog out and enter the contest!!!

Amuse me for just a moment. I am having a time figuring out exactly how I return blog comments after someone has commented on one of my blogs. Is there a proper etiquette or rule to the way it should be done? For example, if someone left a comment on my page, should I leave a comment after that one or if I wanted to comment on their own blog, should I just leave my return comment from my own blog with the blog comment I want to leave for them on their blog or should I put it all under my blog comment and hope they look back there again? It’s a bit confusing, isn’t? If anyone can tell me, I would appreciate it because I want to be sure I’m on the same page. Oh, the things that fill my brain these days…
