Hello! Are you having a nice Sunday so far? I hope so!
It was a really long week over here. We had twins behaving badly, lots of activities, and not much sleep. To say I’m happy the week is over would be a HUGE understatement.
I did get a very nice surprise in the mail, plus we had some nice weather, so it wasn’t all bad. I also did some jogging, which is a really new thing for me. I’m pretty excited because I feel like I’m finally getting back in shape. The healthy eating/exercise plan is working!
In other happy news, on the Blog we had an awesome GIVEAWAY!!!! Are you ready to find out the winner? Drum Roll please…
The winner of the Deluxe ESPRO Sports Cleaner Package chosen by Random Rafflecopter Elves (actually it’s just computer generated. I just hit a button, and a name came up from all the entries) is Cynthia Spillane!!!! I will be contacting you today. Thank you so much to everyone that entered. It was a huge success!
Now, let’s find out what’s happening in the week ahead…
On Monday, we’re meeting another miracle because it’s Micro Preemie Monday. If you haven’t had a chance to read any of these remarkable stories, please just click HERE, HERE, or HERE.
Tuesday, I’m going to finally tell you all about our tumbling class experience. Here’s a little preview of what went on there…
You won’t want to miss it.
Wednesday, I’m finally going to tell you about the rest of our trip to Chicago. If you missed the first part, you can read about our visit to the Shedd Aquarium by clicking HERE or on the picture below.
Thursday it’s time to talk about the March of Dimes and our role as Ambassador Family. I had my first opportunity to speak in front of a crowd this past week, so I want to share that with you, along with the other things we’ll be doing to raise money and awareness to help all babies have a healthier start in life.
Friday it’s time to talk about my oldest son as part of my First Born Fridays. Just click on the links to read about my Pregnancy, Delivery, First Year, and Second Year if you’d like to catch up. This Friday will be a little different, as it’s his last Friday before starting SCHOOL!!!! I’m going to share some of his current favorites, and my current favorites about him.
I’ll also be co-hosting another #HomeMattersParty on Friday. This is a place where, if you’re a blogger, you can link up any of your post that relate to the home. They can be recipes, parenting stories, back-to-school, DIY, etc. If you’re not a blogger, it’s a great place to read a lot of great posts and learn new things. There are usually over 500 different posts linked up, so there is a little something for everyone.
Then, we’re back at another weekend. Saturday I’m going to leave open for now. I might do a recap of our week, I may tell you about some birthday stuff…since someone I know very well (me!) is having a birthday soon, or I may be just too exhausted to write anything at all. Just kidding! I wouldn’t leave you without anything!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
AH! I am so excited for Cynthia! I know she will be too. Can’t wait to join your link up party next Friday. 🙂
