I’m sure you’ve all been on pins and needles waiting to hear who won the book giveaway.

At least four of you are.

Yes, there were only four entries.

Giveaway 2 RW

This tells me either my readership is down or the rest of you just don’t know good literature when you read a book review about it.

Or it could mean folks are tired of giveaways.  That’s a post for another day though.

While normally Sweetey Petey chooses the winner from a toy drum full of Easter eggs, I went a different route this time.  I’d like to credit my sudden change with the number of entries but really it had more to do with the fact the Easter eggs are in a bin . . . in the attic . . . of the detached garage . . . with a crap ton of snow and ice between me and them.

So I went with balls instead.

Big BallsShameless plug for one of my all-time favorite blog posts.

Giveaway 3 RW

Sweetey Petey still drew the winner for me though.

Giveaway 4 RW

And apparently he has a thing for Aly because she won my chocolate giveaway as well.

Giveaway 5 RW

Don’t blame me for Aly’s good luck, blame the toddler.  Aly, I will get your book ordered this week!  Happy reading.

Question of the Day:  What did you accomplish this weekend?  I’ll admit I didn’t get as much done as I’d hoped 🙁  I have four pieces of art to hang in the nursery still and a half a wall to prep and paint.  Yup, just a half a wall.  The Husband is not pleased about the “half” part.  He seems to think we should paint the whole wall.  Immensely pregnant me is just not up to moving a bookshelf and a TV stand though.  So half a wall it is!


  1. Thank you, Sweetey Petey! Your cut is in the mail! 😉

    I managed to find some good maternity deals at a consignment store. (A pair of Motherhood Maternity jeans for $10!) Now that I finally have a pair of jeans, I am happier with clothing options on weekends. I also “fixed” our furnace when it made a bad sound. It apparently needed a new filter, and I figured it all out on my own while the husband slept.

    I say painting at all while you’re super pregnant is awesome. So, there! We have a flower mural thing in ours, and we already decided that we’re keeping it up, no matter the gender. We’re just going to mix in some gender neutral animals/etc. so they are playing in a garden.

  2. Ha. Oh well, back to Bridget Jones’ Diary Pt. II. 🙂

    Well, I cleaned the guest bedroom and played electrician. Really though, I doubt electricians spend much time with exploding light bulbs in their hands…hmmph.

  3. Congrats Aly!! So glad you’ll be checking out my book. Can’t wait to hear what you think of it! And thanks again Joanna for hosting this giveaway and for the great review!

  4. man she is so lucky!!! And I have to admit it was pretty cool to see my name on your blog. Made me feel special!!
