Ok mamas. Are you beginning to feel the post-Thanksgiving, pre-Christmas crunch? If you're like me, you have visions of being immortalized in family photo albums with flawless skin, timeless clothes, and a constant smile. If you're like me, you currently have Rudolph's nose, have more than your share of blemishes, and smell like...ummm... let's not go there. Please enjoy the following review written by my sister, Marianne, and giveaway hosted by Etsy crafter: PICNIC BASKET CRAFTS. Some problems are solvable :)
I have my fair share of headaches right now because I just started a NEW JOB! I had the opportunity to take a long-term sub position for a local school counselor and couldn't pass up the chance to earn a little extra dough before bambino #2 as well as trying on the whole WORKING MOM routine. After 3 days of work, I can say that it feels really good to be back in my professional role, Zel has already grown a lot in terms of not being the center of attention and learning to share, and that I cherish my few hours with her even more than before. I can also say that given the choice (ie a world where money doesn't exist), I'd choose to stay home with my little dumpling. But, it's only been THREE days, so I'll report back to you later! For now, I'm aghast to tell you that I haven't been lazy or napped or read a novel ALL WEEK! ahem...
Side note: my new coworkers probably think I'm a freak 'cause one of my first "get-to-know-you" questions is always: "so what are you serving your family for dinner tonight?". I mean, I had trouble getting a healthy(ish) dinner on the table when I was home, now I'm COMPLETELY AT A CULINARY LOSS! Thank goodness this job is just about the length of my 2nd trimester. My family would have starved during the exhausting 1st trimester!
Ok, so you want to know WHO WON THE WHAT A HOOT HEADBANDS? Many thanks to the talented Lauren who has patiently waited for this contest and now for results. Thanks to everyone who entered. I have SO many more awesome giveaways and ideas for this blog... stay with me... it'll come :)
Out of 18 entries (Mary Beth had to comment twice and so I counted her 1st one for the entry :)... LUCKY NUMBER SIX won the cornucopia of WHAT A HOOT HEADBANDS! WAIT ONE DOSH GARN SECOND... KATRINA AGAIN!?!?! She won my last contest! Oh, my sister is going to be leaving me a LONG voicemail of complaints (she's entered EVERY contest I've hosted and never won!). Oh well, good things come to those who wait :)
