Some Random Blog Stuff

Even though I rarely win anything, I'm a blog contest junkie. Seriously, if you are hosting a giveaway, you will find my name amongst the entries. If you are hosting a giveaway and I'm not in-it-to-win-it, email me - I can't believe I missed it!

So, on to something I actually won! Victoria over at Our Life with Jake hosted a giveaway for a really neat piece of jewelry - a scrabble tile necklace from Kelli Brewer Photography. Isn't it cute??
But here's the thing - I didn't win it. Well, not the first time anyway. when I checked out Victoria's winner announcement I was bummed that I was not the lucky chosen one. However, the winner failed to contact Victoria to claim her prize, so she re-drew (is that a word?) a winner from Random.org and lucky #9 was chosen (ME!!!). Needless to say, I contacted Victoria immediately to claim my prize!

Here's the picture I'm going to use - vintage Ish from June 2009:
I love love love this picture. I remember the day I took it - I remember Ish climbing all over me to try to steal my camera. We had a lot of fun together. This was a totally random shot that I took as he was using my leg for leverage to get himself closer to snagging the camera. The picture makes me smile. And now I'll get to take it with me wherever I go! Thanks Victoria!!

In other bloggie news, I was awarded the coveted Trendy Blog Award earlier in the week - thank you Sippy Cup Mom! If you haven't checked out her blog yet, you are missing out! She's one of my favorites.

And, my last piece of randomness, sometime next week a children's toy organization piece will be arriving at my house for me to review - I am beyond excited!!! It has to do with the playroom area, so I'll have pics and updates on my progress in that room.

That's all for now - I hope you all have a happy and safe Memorial Day Weekend!
