A Few Business Items {Potty Party, Live Giveaway, Upcoming}

Last Thursday, after a long day's drive, I found myself sitting in a rocking chair on the back porch of a house overlooking the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico where I would spend the next 5 days on vacation. I love the beach and was so ready for some time away after the crazy end of school year. Several words came to mind as I sat there in that rocking chair at the start of my vacation. Peaceful. Relaxing. Beautiful. No internet. WHAT?? No internet! This was something that I had not anticipated. I brought along a laptop anticipating that I could have some quiet, peaceful blogging time each night after everyone had gone to bed. After all, I had one day left of TOTALLY SPECTACULAR potty training stuff to give away for my Potty Party, along with a ton of other awesome things. I could not be without internet for five days! We were staying in a friend's beach house and, to be honest, I really didn't think to ask about an internet connection. I figured at the very least I'd have to plug the computer into the wall. No biggie. Everywhere is wired these days. Little did I know that the beach house was really just about like camping without the bugs. Quite rustic. No TV. No AC (except for a small window unit). And no internet. Now let me say that I am in no way complaining! It was actually kind of nice to get away from everything for a little while. It's not often that you find yourself somewhere without any kind of connection to the outside world (okay, so my BlackBerry did work most of the time, but that doesn't count...). However, because of my unintentional five day blogging vacation I have a lot of catching up to do. Needless to say, I will be extending the Potty Party just one more day until tomorrow. Throughout the day I will have three great things to share with you to end the potty training items: a large wet bag from The Patacake Baby, custom fit training pants from babybayrs, and the piece de resistance...a Boon Potty Bench! I mean, what good is a potty party without a potty? Look for all of that great stuff by the end of the day tomorrow!

On another note, I have some other awesome giveaways already going on right now that I feel were a little neglected due to my unintentional blogging vacay. First, I have a LIVE GIVEAWAY for some adorable initial applique ruffle leg training pants. Silly me, I didn't set a specific starting time and it's already gone on for several days. I'm going to CLOSE the giveaway (at post #75) until 7:00 PM CST tomorrow night, June 10. At that time it will resume and hopefully we'll have a winner! The winner will be comment #167. Thanks to everyone who has entered so far! Check back tomorrow evening and comment away!

I also have another great giveaway going on of CuteyBaby Wall Decals. There are about a zillion different designs of vinyl wall decals, and at least one sheet is bound to be perfect for your little one's room(s)! Ada of CuteyBaby has also offered the winner the option of having their child's name added to the decal sheet of their choice. The entry guidelines are super simple and right now I only have 3 entrants! So...that means great odds for you. Check out the giveaway and follow the directions. And, just for entering, you will receive your own coupon code for 50% off any set of decals; Ada will e-mail you pretty much immediately with your code. That's a savings of $30! So, even if you don't "win" you'll still be a winner for sure! Check it out here.

Finally, in the next several weeks I have a ton more great items to share with you including super cute summer styles for little ones and handy and stylish mom products. Be on the lookout!

Thanks for sticking in there with me guys. I have the best readers ever and thank all of you from the bottom of my heart!! I have received some awards in the last several weeks and will also be working on getting all of that info up. If you've given me an award, I truly appreciate it and thank you so so much!!

That's all for now...see you tomorrow!
