Mailbox full of prizes, and other ramblings…

I opened my mailbox yeserday, and found that 2 of our recent prize winnings had arrived. Fun, Fun!

The first one I opened was our bib/burp cloth set from Silly Jilly Bean. OH MY GOSH! How incredibly CUTE!!!!!!!!!! The set is just perfect. I can’t believe how soft the bib is. Lucy just loves it and has worn it most of the evening. Here…. look how cute this set is:
Thank you, Jill. I absolutely LOVE this set and can’t wait for Parker to get here to use it!

The next one I opened was from Lori and her contest. The bag is ADORABLE! Although, I think Ashley is going to try and steal it from me. I need to fill it up quickly so that I don’t give her the chance to grab it! 🙂 The nailpolish is perfect for Lulu’s little toes, and I plan to paint them tonight. SO sweet! Here’s the set we won:
Thank you, Lori!! And I have to tell you how much I LOVE your business cards. They were absolutely beautiful. I also got your note, and plan to use it soon! Ash’s birthday is just around the corner!

Now, for more news and ramblings…

I’d like you all to meet Mary Jane. That’s what the kids have named our car. Why? Well, because Mary Jane (from Spiderman) has red hair, of course, and since our truck is red, we *have* to name it Mary Jane. Ah, the logic of a child.

So, here’s Mary Jane….

Pretty little thing, isn’t she? We just love her. It’s SO nice driving down the road and not worrying about not making it up the next hill.

And, my friend, Danielle, tagged me. I’m supposed to post my 5 favorite YouTube vidoes. Here’s the thing, though. I can think of TWO videos that I’ve actually watched on YouTube. One was the song “Safe in my Arms” by Plumb, and the other was one that I saw on Danielle’s blog that had baby ducks swimming in a tub. That’s it. If I see a video on a blog, or on a website, or anywhere, I never, ever play it. Not sure why, I just don’t. Crazy, I know. So, sorry, Danielle,but I’m not a very good participant this time around. Ask me what my 5 most favorite flavors of ice cream are, and it’ll be a totally different story. 🙂

I think that’s it for the updates… for now. The baby is doing somersaults in my belly daily now, and I LOVE it. I like being at this point. If only I knew why I am so swollen! My legs, arms, feet, and hands are so swollen that it feels like it’s been stretched beyond where it should be. Small price I pay, I guess.

Other than that, things are great! 🙂

    Hey Ang! The internet is working this morning, Praise GOD! I love Mary Jane, what an absolutely perfect name for her!! She’s really nice!

    Glad you got the prize and that you like it! I tried to match my biz cards, with my banner in my shop, and with everything I also use at the Farmers’s Market when I go(ie. table cloth, displays, signage etc) I think it leaves a good image!!
