Christmas Card Giveaway Winners!

It’s time to find out the winners of my Shutterfly Christmas Card giveaway. HUGE thanks to Shutterfly for sponsoring such an awesome promotion for bloggers and their readers! Watch the video to find out who won! (And excuse my weird facial expressions. Obviously I am not destined to be a TV/movie star.)

Congratulations to the 3 winners! You all should have been contacted by me, so if you didn’t receive your code, please let me know!

You may have noticed that I’m wearing a strange shirt in this video. The shirt is part of my Halloween costume. Here’s the complete look:

I’m a Price Is Right contestant! My workplace has a costume contest every year, and I am proud to say that I won second place for the second year in a row! I’m now $15 richer. Woohoo!

I hope you all have a great week!


Lots of Happy

Happy Independence Day to all my American readers (which I’m assuming is most of you)!  Today also marks the fourth month of Charlotte’s life, so in honor of both, a few pictures:


Her outfit was purchased by my mom, aka Nana, and I think it is absolutely adorable. I can’t believe how big she looks!  And would you believe that twice in the last week she has slept from 8:00 p.m.-7:00 a.m.??  It was amazing, but of course that sort of thing is still the exception and not the norm.  Most other nights she sleeps from 8:00 or 8:30 until 3:00, then we get her to go back to sleep (most of the time without feeding her), and then she wakes up for the day between 6:00 and 7:00.  She’s also graced us with more of her giggles, due mainly to Stephen’s mom, whom Charlotte apparently finds quite amusing.  I hope to capture her giggles on camera at some point because they are SO cute.  She grins pretty much all the time, except of course when it’s time to take a nap or go to bed, and then she’s fussing and fighting sleep.  One day I will tell her about her resistance to sleep, and she will undoubtedly think, “Why in the world did I think it would be good NOT to sleep?”

I hope you all have had a great holiday weekend!
