Well, I got an email from the representative for the photo contest I entered and it would seem that I have been disqualified. Apparently I did not completely follow the rules of the contest. So despite the fact that I received all of the participant emails, was congratulated for entering and encouraged to promote my photo and even had my photo uploaded by said website personnel, I am now officially out if the running. I have to wonder if the fact that I was seriously kicking everyones butts had something to do with it, I am guessing that the other participants got jealous and made some angry emails.

Apperently I am getting a fabulous consolation prize, but that doesn't change the fact that I can't win the big prize that I was obviously shoeing in for. If it was there mistake by overlooking a broken rule this entire time, than why wouldn't they let me continue participating. I am very angry at the amount of web traffic I provided by directing my friends and family members to. How angry should I be though? I mean if I didn't follow the rules than that's one thing, but it would have been nice to have known in time to present and appropriate photo right?

Win Number: 46

I won again on giveaway today! How lucky is that! It was out of over 2000 people too! Thing is, I was asked to enter for my friend, and she totally wanted this prize really bad, so I feel extra lucky that I won something for her. I hope she enjoys it, it is a fat jelly roll of quilt fabric and I bet she makes something awesome with it too!

Update: My friend got this fabric and said it is wonderful! I was so happy to pass on this win to her!

Win Number: 45

Thanks to Something Sewn! I won their latest giveaway! It is going to be a custom hand print like this one! We have to trace Diego's hand, which I will get husband to do tonight when he's sleeping and send it in, she will stitch it up like this one, isn't it cool! I can't wait to get it. Check out Something Sewn, she has a blog and an etsy store too!

Update: I received my handprint and it is way cute, what a nice keepsake! I wish it was already framed because I am having a hard time finding one myself, but otherwise it is very sweet!

Win Number: 44

Thanks to the fantastic Mom Blog, Outnumbered 3 to 1 for having a gerat review and contest which I happen to have won! Diego now has a super cool pair of Uneaks! They came so fast, it's not everyday you win a contest and your prize comes that week, what a great sponsor. They are for Diego for later, they are about three times the size of his foot now. but they are so cool, that I wanted him to enjoy them when he can appreciate them. the fun part about them is that they are see through, you get the matching socks to go with them and the socks become a cool decoration on the side of the shoe! Thanks again to Outnumbered 3 to 1, we love our new uneaks.

Update: These shoes are totally rad! They won't fit Diego for a while but when they do he is going to be so stylin'.

The Emmaline Fun Baby Review and Giveaway!

The Emmaline on Etsy Fun Baby GIVEAWAY!

I had the pleasure of working with Lindsay at The Emmaline on Etsy for my first review and giveaway. She was kind enough to send me pretty much whatever I wanted too! I specifically asked her what she was working on new and if there was anything she wanted people to get to see. So I was then the new and proud owner of the drool Bandanna! More stylish than a bib and just as functional; this was perfect for my little Diego. He has already cut those notoriously first bottom teeth and now he is working on those big top teeth too. In case you don't have a rug rat of your own let me in a nut shell break teething down for you. It hurts very bad, it causes baby to cry (unless you have a freakishly happy baby like my best friend who didn't even know he was teething because he's just so obnoxiously happy), they also chew everything and drool a lot. In fact you might compare it to owning a saint Bernard puppy. So here's the deal, Diego is a drooler, so much so that his shirt is always wet, he also happens to love his rocking horse and cowboy stuff. So he got a lot of good use from his bandanna drool catcher. I loved that it snapped easily and the part that goes against babies skin is that soft almost minky fabric. Plus he looked really cut in it, I think a cow boy print might be in order. I gave the drool bib an "A" for design and an "A" for functionality because Diego's shirt remained dry.

Here's the fun part! Lindsay has offered up a cool Ice cream cone Bandanna drool bib for one of our readers!
