Giveaways are fun!

As I mentioned at the time, last week was a huge Bloggy Giveaway Carnival (basically a TON (like over 800) blogs had giveaways going where you left a comment for a chance to win whatever they were giving away) and then most of them held the drawings over the weekend. I wasted way too much time last week checking out all (most) of the fun giveaways, and signing up for the ones that were things I could use. And I actually won a couple!!!

I won the calendar holder that Tyna at Begley Blessings gaveaway. I'm so excited maybe if I have an actual place to hang a calendar I'll remember to change it every month, hee hee.

And I won a pair of babylegs from Teri at My Brand Name Baby. Despite their name, babylegs fit up through age 10. they're essentially leg warmers, first invented as a way to keep babies' legs warm when they're in a sling (since somehow putting a baby in a sling WILL pull their pant legs up and leave their poor little legs hanging out, since my girls were babies in pre-babylegs days, they got the not nearly as stylish solution of boys tube socks pulled up to their thighs LOL), but there are lots of other uses as well. One of my favorite uses is to keep with me in the spring & fall when the girls are starting to wear their skirts & dresses without tights or leggings, that way if the day ends up chillier than anticipated they can easily pull on a pair of babylegs to keep their legs warm. Teri has another giveaway going now for some adorable personalized alphabet prints to hang on your kids' wall, if you want to check it out.

And finally Nise from Thus Far the Lord Has Helped Me was giving away some valentines goodies and I won the stuffed toys & chocolate covered pretzels (guess which part I'm looking forward to more LOL).

And just to keep the fun going, The Apronista is giving away a cute Valentines apron here.
