Mom Attack! ~~~ Other topic

So there is a group on Cafemom that I am in. We support mom who create handmade items and sell them. Every week a mom is choosen and we "attack" her, meaning we link her shop, purchase if you can, blog, or tweet about the shop. Its a great way to get traffic in and new customers.

So this weeks mom we are attacking is: stop by her shop and check out her items.


So where has the time gone? Can anyone tell me? I know I have been busy crocheting and going on trips, its just flown by. The New Year is creeping up on us and I have been racking my brain for new items to add to the shop to see. As always I would love to hear what you all would like to see. So if you have any ideas please feel free to let me know!

I am wanting to do a giveaway when we hit 275 fan on Facebook. It will be an item of your choice and possible a credit to the store. I have not yet worked out the details as well. Next week is my birthday and I am thinking about doing a discount, what do you all think. I want to get more people introduced to my items. Please share with everyone you know, I would greatly appreciate it!

So are you all ready for the New Year? Anyone know what their New Years Resolution is going to be? I know I sure dont. I hope you all are doing well!

It was a close one BUT......

We have a WINNER!!! There were three of you that where SOOO close and it was hard to decide the winner! Sorry its taken me a while to get on here to post who the winner was but I was having to deal with a very horrible headache and was very light sensitive for a few days. I am much better now as I can sit on the computer and write this post.

So are you all ready to know who the winner is? I am sure that you are since you all have been waiting to find out. Well my son weighted in at 8lbs 2oz and is 21 inches long. So I had my mom help me figure out who the winner was because it was a close call. So the Winner of this contest/giveaway is Jblunkall and their guess was 8lbs and 20 inches long. They were off by .2oz and 1inch for the babies height. So that's how we decided who the winner was. So Congrats to you!! You can pick ONE item you want from the shop here or if you see something on Facebook here. Send me an email at with your name and address and what item you want in what colors.

So here is what the little munchkin looks like
Thank you all for participating in this giveaway. You all are awesome fans for helping me get to 200. Please pass on the word to your friends and family! Also if you all are looking for items for Christmas gifts please get your orders in so I can get those out to you all.

Have a super week!

200th Fan Giveaway!!

Sorry fans for my lack of Blogging! I have been nesting BAD!!! Any who like I said before if we got to 200 fans I would do a giveaway and we made it to the Day that I wanted to get to 200 by! I am super excited and I couldn't do it without you all! Thank you all so much!

As you all know I am scheduled to have my second child tomorrow via c-section and I am extremely anxious to meet him and welcome him to our family! I had my pre-op appointment this morning and we go to the hospital tomorrow at 6:30am! Wow that is just super early for me, lol. I have an estimate of what he will be weighting.

So here is the Giveaway/ Contest that I am going to do for you fans. Its SUPER easy! All you have to do is post in the comment how much you think he is going to weight and how long he will be! Only ONE comment per person! If you invite new fans to the page they can also jump in on this giveaway/contest as well! So I will give you a little bit of history to help you with guessing. I was an 8lb and some change baby and my husband was almost a 10lb baby. I am 5ft6 and dad is an inch taller then I am. Hopefully that will give you an idea. To my friends and Family you need to get your entry in TONIGHT if you are going to participate in this because I will be sending a text tomorrow when the baby is born so it would not be fair if you all posted your comment AFTER knowing the right information. So friends and family if you are going to jump in on this you need to post TONIGHT no exceptions! So just remember one comment per person. I will close this on Thursday the 23rd. I should be back home by then. Oh yes the winner will get to choose any item in the shower or anything that I have posted on the fan page of things I have made but not posted in my shop. Also if you are not a fan on my Facebook please fan me here

So fans lets get to posting what you think this baby will weight and his length!

***I just noticed that some of you are anonymous please put your name in the comment box so I know who it is. So if you win I can let you know. Thank you***

Thank you so much for playing along! I don't know how to copy and paste the box number generator from or I would so do that to show you all!

Manic Monday!

So, it was a busy Monday for us over here! To start the day off we woke up late! So after checking my email and facebook it was time to get ready and head out to my sons 3yr old wellness check up. We were suppose to be there 15min early and lets just say that it didnt happen. We got there like maybe 5minutes before his appointment. I thought that I had left with enough time to get there. Apparently all the slow drivers in VA where on the highway today, because OMG I was stuck behind every single one of them! When we finally got through the check point on base I was glad that the clinic was easy to find.

My son did awesome at his appointment. He kept wanting to lay down on the bed because he thought that he was going to the Dr. to have his baby checked up on. He thinks he has a baby growing in his belly like his mommy!! Its to cute! He did well with the Dr. and she was pretty awesome. He is getting another speech evaluation done, which is alright. He hasn't seen a speech therapist since we left TX in November. I hope he scores high on the evaluation.

So lets back up a bit! Friday was awesome! I woke up and saw that I broke 100 on my fan page on Facebook. It was very nice to see that and I am super excited. I also had my ultrasound done too and got to see the baby. Lets just say that we hav a little chunky boy on our hands. He is almost 6lbs and I was only 34wks! So to say the least I can't wait to meet my second little man!

As promised I am going to do a giveaway. I hope I get alot of people to participate in the giveaway. I want my fans to interact with me. It would be awesome. I am right now doing the final touches to the giveaway. It should be fun and I hope you all do have fun and jump in. Have some interaction! It would be awesome!

So how was your weekend and your Monday? Ill see you later for the giveaway details!
