I have won few things in the last few months and a lot of people I talked to seem SHOCKED that I have won giveaways online. I have talked about these blogs I love for months, I blog and facebook the giveaways, heck I even tell random people I meet just because I'm so excited and I forget that if more people enter I have less chance of winning. Regardless of all of my excitement, these people still don't think they can do it.
I also recently made myself a maxi dress (it is like a maxi pad but a dress instead. okay maybe not). The people look at it and are amazed that I've made something. (I am not sure if I should be offended or complimented. Are they saying they thought me incapable cutting on a line and following directions, or are they jealous of my beautiful style?) Again, I try to convince them that they too can sew a dress as long as they can cut on the lines and follow directions. I still don't think I have gotten through to them. So below I am going to post some of the things I have won and let them see once and for all that they can do it too. But first a picture of my maxi dress (not pad).
last post (and hopefully all the other ones too) Jordan of Mean Mommy Academy awarded me The Creative Mom Blogger Award. I am VERY grateful and accept it greedily.
* Take your award and put the logo on your post.
* Link the person who awarded you.
* Put your own blog title and link.
* Nominate at least five deserving moms
My nominations (which I highly recommend you visit their blogs ) in no particular order are:
Amy of The Lawsons did Dallas (If you need a pregnant Hero this is your woman)
Kristina Queen of the Snuggie of Pulsipher Predilections (you will pee your panting laughing from laughing so hard.)
As if seeing my smiling face wasn't reason enough to post this picture, I actually wanted you to check out the necklace I'm wearing. I won that from entering a contest on Mean Mommy University to get some amazing jewelry of your own visit Moonlilly's Treasures buy up the whole store, all of it is great.
Here I have caught up in the prize I won over at Mary Olsen's awesome Crafter's Guru site. It is an amazing book signed by the author. How cool is that? Too Cool for School. Believe me the book is great no matter what your age, if you don't own it buy it.
And on the HUGE monthly (yes that is write monthly) of Mormon Mommy Blogs I won a pedi party kit from Cultures Salon. I have not gotten to have my party yet because hubby has been out of town. But he is back and you better believe the party is own. I will keep you updated. I can already tell you now though the stuff smells good enough to eat. I can't wait.
Now I hope I didn't sound too super braggy. But I wanted to let you know you should be super jealous of all my loot. But if you want to be like me (and quite frankly who wouldn't) you should just do it. Read the quote from my chocolate at the top of the blog. That milk chocolate has a lot going for it and it knows that if you don't take a chance you don't get far.
I hope next time I have a giveaway I will have a ton of entries.
