okay, i will just roll with that order.
lasik. bdawg got his lasik the other day. yesterday, actually. his post-op appt report: 20/12 vision, really good response for less than 24 hrs after surgery. he's driven, and he's walking around w/o glasses...weird. i think that whole procedure is just...weird. and amazing. ridge knows it's his daddy but he sure is giving him some strange looks. sawyer didn't even seem to notice anything.
we are sans one child this weekend bc he went to gibby's. so it's weird having 3 people instead of 4 in our house. ridge won't know what to do.
middletons-- big post i've been wanting to get to. okay. bdawg and i had already discussed what we felt like we should donate to this family. we agreed upon the same amount, simultaneously, so that was kinda cool. anyway, you guys helped us out. big time. i haven't put the pencil to paper very hardcore yet, BUT i can tell you with donations as well as purchases from our business, the total collected was somewhere in the ballpark of $1200. Now, I have to take out business overhead, but that is still gonna be a greaaaaat greeaaaaaat contribution. So way to go people. We've been in the hospital, so checks haven't been cashed and some of you haven't paid for your orders because I haven't made them or billed you yet, so we aren't finished, but that's what we collected-- you guys rock! we are going to be able to send this family more than we'd anticipated bc of your help. thank you so much.
sawyer turned 4 this week. it was a big deal. we were at the hospital and all, but it was still good. we got to come home that day. and apparently, i don't have any pictures from that day as far as presents go. BUT, he got a bike. and some other stuff, but that was the big deal. he likes it a lot. yes, he has a helmet. i will be posting lots of bday pics over here. well not LOTS. bc i didn't take lots. i know, i'm a loser.
projects....the latest projects: baby swaddlers and super awesome flower hair clips. i don't have a picture of the latter, bc i sold them all to the nurses while we were in the hospital! ha ha ha. but once i make some more, i will post pics. they are the cutest $5 you will ever spend. the baby swaddlers are also adorable. a friend of mine bought her own fabric and had me make her a couple. here's how cute they are (more pics at the photo blog):
$25 gets one of these, unless you buy the fabric, then i'll cut ya a deal. I don't have either of these fabrics in stock, bc, as mentioned above, my pal picked her own fabrics. And if I do say so myself, they turned out quite cutesy!
crochet hair clippies...here's a gander. the only one i have is mine, and it's brown. so here ya go. but i have LOTS of bright colored yarn, AND smaller clippies for smaller chickies! i'm not mad in that first picture, regardless of how i look. :) The clippies look WAY cute with a ponytail.
and finally. giveaways! i'm just throwing them all in together. so here's how you enter to win. comment here, and say which item you are wanting to win. or just say you want to enter to win all of them. if you just comment on the blog and don't mention the giveaway, i'm gonna assume you don't want any of the stuff, so go ahead and feel free to comment- i won't send you my junk unless you ask for it! and soon i will have some new giveaways. NEW giveaways. soon.
NEW giveaways, soon.
Third item up for grabs (and 4th and 5th):
So there ya go. comment and let me know what you want to win. If you dont' care, but you just want to win something, let me know. you can enter to win ANY OR ALL of this stuff. Although, even though I will randomly pick the winners, i'm probably not going to pick the same person for two prizes, I'm just saying. Or maybe I will.
Man, I have an awful cough. Best of luck to you all! Don't forget to head over here to see birthday pictures!
