All About Me
Dawn - edging ever closer to 30, although I still feel like I'm 21. :) I'm married to a youth pastor ('Big G'), and have THREE wonderful kids: a five year-old son ('Little G'), a just turned two year-old daughter ('A'), and our newest little girl blessing, Baby R, was born May 28/07!! They keep me hopping as I juggle them, my WAH part-time job as an accountant, being a pastor's wife, and of course hobbies like quilting, scrapbooking, and blogging!

Dog Days of Summer Bloggy Giveaway day!!
Shannon at Rocks in My Dryer had this great idea for a simultaneous giveaway week, all across the Blogosphere - thanks, Shannon! I can't wait to check out all the other giveaways being offered this week!

My giveaway will likely mostly interest those of you with small children, or who know someone with small children. Which is probably most of you. Anyway. I will be drawing this Friday, July 27, for a size 2 Hotslings reversible pouch in the Eren cotton sateen stretch fabric. This sling has been washed once and tried on a couple of times, but is in excellent condition. These slings are a lifesaver for anyone with babies or toddlers - I have one that I have been using lots for both A and Baby R (the one I'm giving away is the wrong size for me, unfortunately). This sling would retail for $56.

If you want more information on Hotslings, or to check out their size chart, visit them here. I have a couple of pics of the sling here.

Good luck and I hope to be visiting all the other Bloggy Giveaway sites this week - see you there!

***Edited to fix the time of the draw...should be 10AM Friday, not 10PM***

The small print: Draw will be made at 10*A*m MST on Friday, July 27 from all comments made on this post - you don't have to have a blog to win. I will pay shipping anywhere in Canada or the U.S. Please leave contact information (either your email or blog address) so I can contact you if you are the lucky winner. If I don't hear from the winner within 10 days with their mailing info I will draw another winner.

**COMMENTS ARE NOW CLOSED...WATCH FOR THE WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT COMING SOON!***
