I’m Feeling Generous. Are You?

So, earlier on Facebook I posted that my friend has 2 of her costumes in a contest.  Here they are.

She did an absolutely amazing job on these…don’t ya think? You can vote for these costumes here.

I said that if she jumps to #1 with your help, I would do a giveaway. Well…she’s not #1 yet but I know you’ll help her get there.

Since then, the new leg warmers came in (be sure to check back and see all of the styles on the website) AND my littlest guy got Student of the Month for the school. Yay! (You have no idea how hard he’s worked since he’s been here with us.)

SOOOOO….. I’m in a good mood. It’s your lucky day! Let’s give away a pair of football leg warmers. (The unruffled ones seen below.)

Aren’t they so cute?!?!

Comment this post with your favorite football team. If you don’t like football, (I think you should give it a chance) then make something up. 1 winner will be chosen by random.org on Monday, November 7th. The contest is over at 12:00pm est and the drawing will happen shortly after. One entry per person please! Maybe if you play nice I’ll feel even more generous and give away 2!

And the Winner Is…..

The actual number of Pickled Bat Guano (Root Beer Balls) in the jar is 91. It didn’t seem like that much, did it?

My #1 Tip for Hosting a Baby Shower

The greatest need for baby (and most expensive) is diapers. Whether mom is planning on using disposable or cloth, she can never have enough diapers. One way to be sure she is showered with diapers is to have a diaper raffle for her. A diaper raffle is fun & easy.

1. Make sure you announce the diaper raffle on the shower invitation. You may also want to ask for a specific size since they are not in newborn diapers for very long. Something like this will work.

It’s a Diaper Raffle! For every diaper you bring, you will be entered into a raffle for a (whatever you want to giveaway.) Size 2 is preferred!

2. Purchase a roll of raffle tickets at your local big box or party store. I found them cheapest at Walmart.

3. Figure out what you’d like to give away. The bigger the better! I raffled off the rest of the shower game prizes for fun along with 2-$25 Olive Garden gift cards that I got for doing a survey.

4. As guests arrive, have them tear off 1 ticket for each diaper they bring. If they bring a case, it will be a lot of tickets. They will think they have a better chance at winning so many will bring cases. Have them put 1/2 of the ticket in something fun. We used mom’s diaper bag to hold the tickets to pull from.

5. At the end of the shower, announce the drawing and start pulling tickets for prizes.


I bet mom has enough diapers to get through several months. My granddaughter is almost 6 months and we still have about 4 cases left.

The best place I have found to buy diapers is Amazon. You can sign up for free for Amazon Mom, use the subscribe & save option and have diapers shipped to your door for around $.12 a diaper. After they ship, if you don’t want them to come again in a month, you can cancel your subscribe & save subscription.
