Good shopping and a giveaway!
Oh, I am in such a happy mood! My kids started summer school today. It is for four hours four days a week. Matthew's is a "reading treasure chest" and Brittany's is a "science and math exploration" . I was feeling like a big meanie this morning, making them go to school in the summer. Brittany especially wasn't tooexcited. But then they came home and had loved it! Yeah for us all!
This meant I could run errands this morning with only Joshua! So much more fun! Miracles of miracles I found a great swim suit! I know this is probably more than weird to post about, but I am so excited and I have to tell someone so of course it has to be my bloggy friends! I have to tell you how perfect this suit is! (Well for a swimsuit at least). It is my favorite colors, has that great tummy sucking stuff inside, covers all my parts, doesn't leave me with loads of cleavage hang out and has this tiny little skirt to make me feel a bit more secure. But not so much skirt to make me feel like a total granny! Plus it was at Ross so it only cost me 20 bucks! Hurray for me! Hurray for my kids because now I may take them swimming! Too bad I didn't find it before I spent all that time in Utah in a yucky swimsuit...
Another silly purchase making me happy. I bought this miniature water bottles on clearance at Wal-mart today! 25 cents each! I love them because my kids can get them out of the fridge themselves and they like their small size so they drink more. They even have a spill proof valve. I actually bought a few of these last week and we have used them so much I bought more today. We had been using this refill method with regular water bottles but I like that these will survive the dishwasher.
And for surviving my lame post on swimsuits and water bottles you get rewarded with a giveaway! Would you believe this is my 400th post?! I can't believe I have had that much to put out into cyberspace! It sure has been fun! So I am giving away one of the pendants I made for the Jewels of the Sea swap I am in. It is on a linen cord and does have a little clasp so you can remove your jewel from its shell and put it right on! All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me what you love about blogging and how long you have been a blogger! I will draw a winner Wednesday at 10pm pacific time.
Would you believe my sister-in-law Tattingbug won? AND she won Loveboxes giveaway too! Talk about a luck day! Wow!
