Just a random update

So, my best friend's hosting a baby shower for me this saturday! I'm excited! Just gotta keep this little booger in there a couple more days... I swear it feels like she's gonna just leap out at any moment. I recall what I *thought* were contractions during my first labor - they felt like mild menstrual cramps. Turned out they were just braxton-hicks. This time around... woah, nelly! They feel like the real thing. I know they aren't, because they're so sporadic... but geezus, they hurt. In my back, front, legs, everything. Who knows, maybe they are actual contractions... but I'm not going in this time 'til I know without a doubt! I have been a lot more active this time, and I hear that can make false contractions worse.

Anyway.... a while back I won a giveaway for a coupon for a free decorative clorox wipes thingy... but I can't find 'em anywhere! They had 'em at Wal-Mart up in WA, but the one here doesn't have them. Boooo! The coupon expires Saturday (or maybe Sunday? I can't recall) and it's killing me! I want my clorox wipes! GRR!

Ok, I guess I'm gonna head back to bed now... maybe I'll be able to sleep this time.

Multiple item giveaway!

Over at the virtual baby shower hosted by Comfort Joy Designs (see the button to the left?), there are tons of games, giveaways, door prizes, and more! I just entered THIS giveaway by filling out a fun little mad lib (see previous post). This has got to be the most fun I've had entering giveaways... best bloggy baby shower, EVER. Anyway, this giveaway includes a 9 month candle set from Childish, $50 gift cert. to Maggie Maternity, temporal scanner from Exergen, and pajamas from Pajamagrams! Go do some mad libbing and possibly win some prizes!

Baby Mad Libs

(Odelay)! gasped New Daddy. It was (8 a.m.) and baby was awake for the (7th) time today. New Mommy had been (haphazardly) (folding laundry), but rushed to check on New Baby. "No, no," said New Daddy, who had been relaxing by (collecting stamps). "I'm always (hesitant) to help with the baby. I'll go." New Mommy was (psychotic), since this was only the (2nd) time that New Daddy had offered to help. In fact, New Daddy was more inclined to snack on (figs), while sitting on the (ottoman), watching (Ellen). New Mommy knew that she should (instantaneously) accept, because New Daddy might not offer again!

(This is for a giveaway... which may be explained in a post following this one...)

New Look...

So, if anyone visits my page... they may have noticed it looks a bit different. I got an awesome free layout from LeeLou Blogs. They are the coolest.
Also, the buttons for blogs I visit regularly/follow are now to the left... as well as a special spot for special bloggy events. Not only is it easier for you to find the events vs. the normal buttons, it's easier for me to get rid of the special event buttons once they have "expired" without having a bunch of html or anything to weed through! Yay!
Now that I have MY computer up and running (yeah, it took long enough), I am going to work on making a new header, as the one I have doesn't quite fit right with this layout. Wish me luck!

Much love to my (possibly non-existant) readers!

By-The-Book giveaway

Outnumbered 3 to 1 is hosting a By-The-Book giveaway that ends May 26 @ 11:59pm. It's a great little book that you can "fill in the blanks" about your child and keep handy for babysitters, nannies, loved ones, and whoever else watches your child (possibly even for a clueless Daddy, when you get one of those rare "Girls Night Out" things I hear so much about). You can even make copies of pages to add in as your child grows and his or her needs and things change, or for multiple children... and, even better, you can print extra pages right from the website, just in case you don't have a copier or a convenient Kinko's. Awesome, huh?

Wanna enter? Go here to find out how!

Another giveaway hosted at Outnumbered 3 to 1 is for an Organically Hatched bath sheet... A big, absorbant bath towel made of bamboo! Just reading her review made me want one so much... I guess that's the point of reviews, eh? So, anyway, I'm entering... You should, too!

And yet another... I love funny t-shirts, don't you? Well, Crazy Dog has some of the funniest. Outnumbered 3 to 1 is hosting a giveaway for one of those funny shirts. If you want to enter, do it HERE!!!

It's a Blog Launch Party, so she also has a BUNCH of other giveaways... go check them out!

Shi Shu giveaway

Another great giveaway from the mother of Princess P (Piece of ME)! A Shi Shu baby snuggler blanket! If you're a mom, mom-to-be, or know someone who is, enter or pass the news of this giveaway along to others!

EarCheck Giveaway

Over at Piece of ME, an EarCheck middle ear fluid monitor is being given away to a lucky reader.
As a child, I had ear problems.. aches, infections, you name it.. and I worry that my children will be afflicted by the same problems. So far, so good.. but I'd rather be safe than sorry. With a monitor like this, I'd be able to determine if one of my children *possibly* has an ear infection. If your child is prone to ear infections, you should really try to get your hands on one of these to keep tabs on that pesky fluid.

If you're interested, you can enter here!

Chicky's 1st giveaway!

My friend, Chicky, is hosting her very first giveaway!! Ok, so her name is Christina, but I call her Chicky... ok, so I briefly called her Chicky in high school... I honestly can't remember why... I know it's shorter, therefore easier to type.... but all of that's besides the point. She's the one that got me addicted to bloggy giveaways, and now she's hosting a giveaway for something that is a much needed item for moms and moms-to-be... A bowl and spoon set for baby. Oh, it's not just ANY ol' bowl and spoon... it's all SLANTY inside and GRIPPY on the bottom... and so awesome.. and I wants it for Bean II! It's called the Baby Dipper. It's designed especially for one-handed feeding and/or toddler self-feeding.

If you want a chance (or four) at this GREAT bowl and spoon set, head on over to Peanut's Page and enter RIGHT HERE! Go on, what are you waiting for?

A giveaway

Shannon over at Shannon Blogs Here is hosting a couple of giveaways, one of which I have entered. A three-month supply of a revolutionary laundry soap called Dropps is the prize. It seems like a neato soap... and it's eco-friendly! I've been getting greener with my cleaning supplies, so I'm very interested in trying these out. She says they work VERY well. So, if you're interested, head on over to this entry in her blog and enter!

Her other giveaway is for a FULL, non-expiring subscription to Break Pal, a computer program/networking site that reminds you to exercise, shows videos of all kinds of different exercises, and connects you with other people that like to exercise. I don't exercise (yeah, I know.. shame shame.. but geez... I've been no more than 95 lbs my entire life, aside from during pregnancy... Do I REALLY need to?), so I didn't enter... but maybe YOU exercise and think it's something you'd like.. so head on over here to enter.

I totally didn't have to plug that other giveaway... but I did anyway, because I'm nice like that. ;)
