A) The second Friday the 13th this year.
B) The day I officially gave up on the bedspread we bought last spring.
C) My three year blogaversary.
D) All of the above.
Did you answer D? That is correct!
A) It's Friday the 13th...again! I was really hoping I wouldn't give birth to Annabeth on Friday, February 13th. Praise the Lord - for so many reasons - that I didn't even get close! Not that I think it would have truly been ominous, but I wouldn't have wanted to tell her she was born on that day. Just like I wouldn't have wanted to tell her that I went into labor at Monster Jam. Can you imagine?
B) We've had this bedding since last spring.
It's neat and all, but it's a duvet and the comforter is always bunched up on one side. Usually one of us is sweating at night and the other one is cold. Is there some kind of trick to this that I don't know about? Also, the color, which is somewhere between blue and gray, is not really us. In almost a year, I've not hung one thing on the walls, bought one decorative accessory, or made any progress on finding new curtains. So we have this rain colored bedspread with red drapes. Red drapes that do not match. Red, unmatching drapes that are so long that it will cost more to replace them than to replace the bedspread. So this morning I made the bold announcement to Curtis that I would be spending my Christmas gift cards to Pottery Barn on new bedding. He was pumped. I was shocked. Now I have something else to amuse me online besides reading blogs and trying to type emails with one finger while I nurse the baby.
C) Happy blogaversary to me! I started this blog on March 13, 2006, with the announcement of Jackson's grand entrance. I've loved having this outlet to record everything from my children's births and milestones to where I've just eaten or shopped. I enjoy writing for writing's sake (although most of my posts don't deserve to be called writing) but it definitely would not be as fun without you! Thanks for reading and thanks for all the encouraging, supportive, and fun comments.
To celebrate my blog's third birthday and the readers who have blessed me so much along the way, I'm doing my first real giveaway! I'm giving away one $50 gift certificate to Tiny Prints, which is my favorite web site for ordering stationery. They have baby announcements, Christmas cards, and all kinds of fun invitations. It makes me all kinds of happy to have a reason to order something from Tiny Prints, so I'm excited to do this little giveaway.
To enter, just leave a comment on this post and make sure I have a way to get in touch with you. There's no need to post anything on your blog about it. I'm not looking for new readers as much as I want to tell you how much I appreciate you. I will do the drawing on *Sunday evening and announce the winner then. I wish I could give away more than one gift certificate, but when I told the Hubs that I was doing this giveaway, he suggested I just give away some advice. So here's your advice: don't ask your hubby what he thinks about giving something away to The Invisible Internet Peeps.
*Originally I put Monday, but that's because I thought today was Saturday. Ironic, isn't it, since I just talked about it being Friday the 13th? I need more sleep!
