4 year Blogoversary + Giveaways!

Four years ago, on 08.08.08 (watching the Opening Ceremonies of the 2008 Summer Olympics), I started this blog.
I was 8 months pregnant with Claire.
Kate was only 18 months old.
And, here I am 4 years later & 9 months pregnant with Baby #3 and watching the Olympics (again!)
I had no idea how much blogging would enrich my life.
I have meet & become friends with people because of this blog.
I have been able to be a part of Project 320 because of this blog.

In honor of my 4 year blogoversary, I am doing a giveaway as a thank you for reading my blog!
It surprises me that people actually read my blog.
I am just a normal girl who loves Jesus, my husband, 2 girls & baby on the way.
I am obsessed with taking pictures and I love trying new recipes.
I am living my life the best I can & having fun while doing so!
I am thankful for a God who loves me despite my shortcomings.

Giveaway #11
"365 Things Every New Mom Should Know" by: Linda Danis
This book guides a mother through that exciting, yet often overwhelming, first year of her baby’s life, one day at a time.

It was published in 2002 & this April the book got a revamp & released with a new cover!
Linda's book was used on the TV program Friends. Monica read part of the book to Rachel to help her baby stop crying. (And, it worked!)
Linda emailed me last week letting me know she wanted to give me her book so I could read it for Baby #3. It turns out we have several mutual friends (and I used to babysit for some of her kids friends!)
Linda wants to giveaway a signed copy of her book to one of you!

    Crazy in just few days your sweet one will be here!!!
    I think blogs are so cool & I just somehow become attached to the stories. Your story.
    I feel like we have many things in common-although I'm not sure of age (just turned 38) I have 5 kids-youngest starts kinder in 6 days and I'm a mess over it but I love Jesus, adore my husband (18yrs!) blessed to be a momma, can't stop learning taking pics with my 50D, love to cook, love to throw a party, love Ina, and we even make the EXACT same choc chip recipe-because ever other recipe isnt quite right! And I'm seriously envious of your cool block parties!
    Keep up the blogging! And you'll be on my heart as you await the arrival of your bundle.

  76. I stumbled on your blog a while ago, and love following along with your posts. Of the many blogs I do follow, I have to say that I have actually used more of your recipe offerings and party ideas that any other! We have crock pot salsa chicken ALL THE TIME now, and on our recent cross-country-in-a-winnebago trip to Florida, found myself needing to stop at as many Cracker Barrels as we could find (which was a lot!). I love your style! Good luck with baby #3. I've got three daughters myself, so I'm kinda keeping my fingers crossed for a girl :) (Although, truth be told, I do kinda get baby boy envy when I see my friends with their sons) It's a sweet blessing no matter what! God Bless...
