Well as I mentioned a while back, in honor of my first blogoversary, I decided to give one present to myself and one to you guys. The present to myself was the new sidebar. Yay! I'm so excited to have a second sidebar now. There are some other little things in the works, and I'm still not done rearranging everything yet, but I think Candace at Mommy Designs Blogs has been great to work with. She even made a little button for my blog with code. It's over there a ways down on the left. Isn't it cute? Copy and paste away. Thanks, Candace!
It's been a fun year. And thanks to the ol' blog, a lot of it actually got recorded. Never mind that Jade's baby book is near blank. I'm thinking that when my PT job has officially ended in a few weeks, I'll have time for all of that. Right? Yeah, I thought not.
Anyways, I thought I'd pull out a few of my favorite posts...one for each month.
And then I thought, who would actually read them? Maybe my mom and one other soul? Yeah, I thought so. Although I am going to eventually round up some of my faves for my own sake and list them in my new sidebar, I'm going to save myself some time and get straight to the giveaway.
I previously said I was going to round up all of the spare change from my car and sofa cushions...and actually had started doing so. Then Lily found a pile of change and claimed it as her own. Something just doesn't feel right about robbing my daughter's piggy bank for a little giveaway.
I'm just going to call it an even ten bucks and get the giveaway a goin'. A $10 gift card to Starbucks. Any takers? Just leave me a comment here before Friday at midnight and I'll let Lily pick a winner Saturday morning. She may still be wearing her Princess Belle dress from Halloween the night before, but that will just add to the drama. I think a video post is in order. Oh, and I would have Jade participating in the drawing festivities, but she is having ear tubes put in and adenoids removed early Friday morning. I don't want any drunk looking baby footage floating on the internet...CPS creeps me out.
Anyways, I know $10 isn't much. I do think it will possibly buy you 2.7 of the new Salted Caramel Hot Chocolates that they have out. I would have never thought to order a hot chocolate with the word "salted" in its description, but when I grabbed a free sample at Kroger earlier today...wow. I thought about ordering one immediately...but then I remembered it was 80 degrees outside and resisted. Yep, still holding off on carving the pumpkins...they would mold right away in this heat.
Regular reader or commenter or not...everyone's game...spread the word!
