We have a winner...!

You all are terrific.

Thanks to every single one of you who stopped by to leave me a comment and enter my humble little giveaway! I had so much fun reading everything you had to say and learning a little more about you. To those of you who said you would choose sleeping in late (or sleeping all day!) as your way to spend a day to yourself, I am so with you. Apparently we are all in the same boat of sleep-deprivation.

And now for the winner:

Commenter #29 is Genny at My Cup 2 Yours! Who, by the way, is a fantastic writer and has a beautiful blog. Stop by to visit her...you won't be disappointed.

Congrats, Genny! Email me with you mailing address and I'll get your goodies out in the mail to you sometime this week.

You might have noticed over on my sidebar the little category that says What I'm doing right now. I admit it...I have succumbed to the temptation of Twitter. I was anti-Twitter for a long time because, well, I figured I wasted spent enough time on the internet the way it was, and did I really need to add yet another online addiction to my repertoire? But then I saw several of my blogging buddies twittering and tweeting and singing like songbirds, and so on a whim I joined. It's fun! Best of all, it doesn't take up much time, and you can see at a glance what everyone is doing. So tell me...have you jumped on the bandwagon? Are you anti-Twitter? Or maybe you have no idea what I'm talking about, which is perfectly fine, too.

And because a couple of you have asked me...here's a quick potty-training update. Miss Savannah has taken to it quite well; much to my surprise, I don't even have to give her M&M's anymore after each time. I think that is largely due to the fact that she is now the proud owner of a pack of Dora the explorer panties, and getting to wear them is a treat that far outweighs any amount of chocolate. Who knew? We still have a ways to go, I think, but overall I'm thrilled with how she's doing.

And lastly, I have been awarded again with the Arte Y Pico Award. Michelle at Life with Three was sweet enough to present this to me....thanks, Michelle! She has a great blog that I always enjoy visiting...go check it out!

And that's all, folks....

Okay, I admit, I don't really know what twitter is all about. Can you fill me in on all the great details and why you like it.

Wendi said...

I just don't want all of the axe murderers out there to know exactly what I am doing and exactly when I am doing it. Y'know?? I am on face book though and have a very similar thing with my 'status'. With face book you can pick who can see your page though. With our blogs we are out there on the internet.
*Stepping away from my tirade of paranoia*
Hi friend! :) Wow, 31 comments on your last post. I should do a giveaway! :) I think I will steal your idea for my 100th post. I've seen alot of different people do alot of different things for #100. Quite a few have done the '100 things about me' thing, which is super fun, but would be way out there boring on my blog. :) I love your idea. My 100 is coming up soon, so I shall be a stealer of ideas. Actually, if we share the same brain it really wouldn't be stealing, it is just multitasking or something. :) I have loved all of your sweet comments and got a great laugh over the fact that we kind of share a brain. :) It's so true! I have so often read one of your posts and thought, I so could've wrote that - only it wouldn't have sounded this cool and been nearly as fun to read. :)
Glad you enjoy my music. How cool that we both married older guys and that neither of them have hair?? Wow, it's all just too much! :)
Wishing we could hang out for real...

HI I too am clueless on what is a twitter....

Dora Panties are "dah bomb" they were the charm when Riley was potty training.

mamachristina said...

yeah the underwear did it for us too while potty training. he didn't want to make a mess on thomas.

Sarah@Life in the Parsonage said...

Glad you're on twitter! (even though I haven't really figured out how to actually FOLLOW the people I'm following...I'll eventually get it...)

Tracey said...

Not sure what twitter is and I don't have any extra time to take it on...does it take a lot of time? TELL US OH WISE ONE!!!

Carolina Mama said...

Oh, we love Twitter here and Twitterific! It is soooo easy. Mine's not protected... hmmm. how do you loop?

You have all the news, a winner, nice blog. M&Ms and potty training. etc. Nice. We used m&ms too. rights of passage.

Carolina Mama said...

And congrats on the award! ;)

Darcie said...

No tweeting for me. I'm not that technically gifted. I stick to the basics.

Congrats on the potty training progress!

Michelle@Life with Three said...

Thanks for the sweet shout out! My thoughts on Twitter are exactly what your thoughts were. I'm so scared to even look at it, because I'm sure I'll get sucked right in. And, to your point, I probably spend a little too much time online as it is! :)

Cheri said...

I'm just getting used to DSL and being able to upload pictures from home (it's the little things sometimes). I'll probably figure out the whole twitter thing when everyone else has moved on to something new!

Jennifer @ Taking My Time said...

Hey, congrats on the 100th post..and beyond! I didn't enter the giveaway because I'm just weird like that!

I keep thinking about twitter and see it on so many blogs, but just don't feel like taking on one more thing. It does look like fun and not 'work' so maybe someday.

Tracey said...

I joined Twitter...but it could be addictive too!!!

Amanda said...

i'm with wendi on the twitter stuff...but on top of that, i'm just clueless! seriously getting words and picture on my blog is hard enough some days! :) oh and i am so with you...i tried all the candy and bribery...and in the end, curious george panties were the trick to potty training at our house!

Lizz @ Yes, and So is My Heart said...

My thoughts on Twitter are like what yours were. I'm already on the computer a lot. But, who knows? Maybe I'll start twittering on a whim like you.

I'm not having to use M&Ms much either for the potty training. Woohoo!

Genny said...

Thanks so much! (No, I didn't get an email from you, so sorry for the delay in saying thanks!) I'll email you my address.

Fun to win!

Gretchen said...

I should probably twit away, but I haven't succumbed just yet. Too technophobic, I guess.
