They like me, They really like me! (and something new too....)


Too bad I can't come up with what that is from. Wait, wasn't it Sally Field? Which is funny because my mother looks freakishly like that woman.

But I digress.

It's time for the first round of the "fun news" that I mentioned before I was disconnected from the world.

It's time to say Thank You to you wonderful people! Why?

This is why:


Woo-hoo!
Thank you for voting-I'm so excited!
And to add to the fun, Life Moves Pretty Fast won honorable mention!

So to celebrate, I'm starting something new:

Yep, Freebies! Every Friday, my favorite things, Free for you.
Since my baby girl turns one year old tomorrow (ack!), this very first giveaway is all girlie.

My new favorite tutu:

I had an over whemling desire to add "shrimp" to my catalogue of tulle colors with my last order, but wasn't sure what I'd do with it....until it came packaged next to this lovely bright pink.
Voila! Love.

Catie you inspire me on so many levels. I'm from the pregnncy board and I have 4 kids and often wonder how you manage to get so much done with 7. However that has to be the cutest tutu ever and my last was finally a girl and I would love to see her in that. Her and Charlotte are the same age. That is gorgeous!(I bet youcan tell I lack in adult conversation from the way I ramble,sorry)

hi. My name is Kelsey. I clicked on your link. I had oatmeal and strawberries for breakfast. I've changed....about 3 pull-ups today and the last time ended up with poo on my finger. Yes, poo. On my finger. Yep, the same hands I eat with. Nope, don't have a fork ;)
This tutu is amazing and even cuter (hard to believe) in person. I asked Catey to make one for me.

I have lots of things I can go on and on about but the smell of a poopy diaper is about to make me pass out. Guess I should go change it. Ew. Ick. Gag. YUCK!
