I wanted to share with y’all some of the blog winnings & purchases I’ve recently received. I’m so excited about them! Of course the baby items will go into the office/future nursery closet until we have big news.

The Itty Bitty Bums diaper that I won from Alena’s blog. She was so awesome to work with when it came to size & pattern {owls of course!} and answering my questions. And very more cool, she added a cute monkey cloth wipe & some of their diaper wash in the package!


I entered Minimal Mom‘s Simplisse breast pump giveaway. I didn’t win, but I was a winner (there were 25) of one of their Sample packs. I received breast pads, nipple cream & breast milk bags.
I love Jamee’s blog and was thrilled when I won the book If I…I Will by Debbie Covington. It’s a Christian book focusing on moving past the “ifs” in life. It comes highly recommended from Jamee.

I received an email {suzstreats@gmail if you’re interested} from a Penguin books publisher asking if I was interested in receiving an advance copy of You Don’t Look Like Anyone I Know by Heather Sellers. I said yes & received it very soon after! It is at the top of my TBR pile just behind this month’s book club book so look for reviews soon of all three upcoming reads.

On the way to me *I hope!* are these two items. I ordered the Valentino by Shey B camera strap with a discount code from Heir to Blair {after not winning her giveaway}. I just received an email this morning that it shipped!

I won a Sullivan & Sawyer burp wrap from Sally’s blog. I’ve heard awesome things about these so I’m looking forward to adding it to the future baby closet!

What I *really hope!!!* is on the way to me is this Nikon D5000! I found the package that includes the Nikon D5000 Digital SLR Camera, AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR, AF-S DX VR Zoom-NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED, 4GB SD Card, Carrying Case, & EN-EL9a Rechargeable Li-ion Battery all for $799. It will be my birthday & our Christmas gift from my parents & grandparents! And maybe us chip in a little too. I’m so excited!

Oh and I gave B one of Gussy’s pouches in Green Floral for her birthday. I was thrilled when it arrived. She’s using it as a bag to hold her b-day camera in her purse. I’m jealous because it really is so cute!
