I am the chosen one

Well, me along with 249 other people but still!
I am so excited that I was one of 250 bloggers/writers to get my hands on a pre-released copy of Jen Hatmaker’s book, Interrupted, When Jesus wrecks your comfortable Christianity.

On her Facebook page last week, they made a post about looking for bloggers/writers that would be interested in hosting this. You had to submit some information along with your website (that had to meet certain requirements to begin with). Having people look at my blog and making a choice whether or not to choose me is a tad nerve racking. I know that not everyone will enjoy what I post about or agree, I am ok with that part & know it happens, but it’s just the fact that my blog content is a factor in whether or not you were picked is intimidating.
They said that they would be notifying people yesterday. I can’t tell you the amount of times I checked my email because I knew I would hear a yes or no. Around early evening I received the email. I ended up reading the subject line (before opening the actual email) a few times before it actually sunk in that this was the email. I finally opened the email.
I actually didn’t think that I would be chosen for this. My blog isn’t a popular one, I don’t get that much traffic, and I don’t have my posts being reposted all over the web. I wasn’t sure that me reading the book & doing a review on it would bring much attention to Jen & her book. They must see/believe something that I don’t. Which is awesome & totally encouraging for me!
I only read the first word & could hardly contain my excitement! I was just thrilled that I was chosen!

I only have a short amount of time to read the book and get my review up! I am so hoping that I can do it within the time frame that they have given us. I am just hoping that with the new baby arriving any day now, that they down time I will have from recovery, will allow me extra time to read. Plus I am reading another book with the women’s ministry at my church (that I am totally behind on but hoping to catch up over the next few days).

Anyway, I cannot wait to get my nose in this book & then tell you all about it! I hope that you will check back for the review & go out and buy it once you read it! I am also excited to see what I can/will learn & apply from this book.

Car seat cover + more giveaway *CLOSED*

I haven’t done a review/giveaway for FluffyRumps is too long but I am here with another one!

Most of us, if not all of us, use a blanket to cover our babies when it’s cold outside when they are in their car seats. It is so annoying to me that I can’t keep it tucked under Lily without it moving, falling off, or her pulling it out from underneath herself. I wouldn’t have to check so much to make sure the blanket was still in place and/or fix it when it did!

Thank goodness I don’t have to do any of that anymore! Rhonda as come up with a great idea! I was so excited for it to get cold so I could use this with Lily! I have to admit though, for whatever reason, I had trouble figuring out how it went on. I couldn’t picture it. I felt silly when I looked at the pictures Rhonda has posted on her FB page of these covers. It was definitely a slap-the-forehead kinda moment!

I love the fabric that she uses…..so soft! She has many different in stock covers that y’all can choose from!
I use this cover on Lily every time we go out & it’s cold…even chilly. It beats having to worry about a blanket & keeping it on!

I also found out that it makes for a great cart cover also. Stores are usually cold no matter the time of year anyway, so using this car seat cover as a cart cover in the summer will work out great! I have never used a cart cover before but it just looks bulky. This isn’t! You can just take your baby from the carseat to the cart and not have to take anything off or add anything.

I will definitely be using this next winter also! I don’t think that Lily will have out grown the leg part by then. Please check them out & get one!

Winner of the Boogie Wipes Giveaway

This giveaway was extended to almost a month! There are two lucky winners with this giveaway! I would like to note something too. There are 34 comments to this giveaway, but I only put in 33 when I went to Random.org because I had commented on the post. When counting to see which number went to which comment, I completely skipped my comment-I have acted like it wasn’t even there.

So without further ado, the winners are Tanya & Heather! Congrats ladies! I will email you but then you have 24 hours to reply or I will pick another winner!

Thanks everyone for playing! I will be posting another giveaway later today-keep an eye out for that one!
