I won!

The other day, I got an email from thebump saying to register for this great giveaway.

So, I went right to the site and submitted my response. It went a little something like this:

We plan on strolling our baby everywhere we go. Through the neighborhood, to cookouts, to the farmers market in town, to the fair, to the balloon festival, to the zoo, to grandma & grandpa's houses, around the shopping mall, the outlet malls, to friends houses, to 4th of July fireworks, to Easter egg hunts, to church, on vacation, to the beach, to the local pool and everywhere else in between.

It would be extremely useful for ANYTHING that we do!

Once I had submitted my response, I looked to see that the giveaway was ending THAT day! I thought, well with 5 pages of responses now and 24 by the end of the giveaway, what were the chances of me winning.

Well, next day, I was checking my email at home from my phone and I got a message from TheBump, which at this point wasn't very uncommon because I'm getting them almost daily and sometimes 3 times a day, since I signed up. I opened it and didn't realize at first but the subject line was actually "The Bump Bumbleride Giveaway".

After reading through it briefly, I started to think, "Well this is weird, usually I can't read their emails from my phone because they are in HTML format and my phone is not that fancy. WAIT, what did that say?!?!"

And the email stated (actually I edited a little, for blogging sake, to say) this:

Hi Jill,

Congratulations – you are the lucky winner of a Bumbleride Flite + Carrycot set!

Have a great day! :)

The Bump

I yelled out, "NO WAY!" Which of course scared Sean to think that something was wrong since he was in the other room. I ran in our bedroom and said, "I just got an email that said I won this stroller. It's like a $500 value! Hold on."

Then I ran upstairs, grabbed our Mac and proceeded to view the computer from there. I had to reference the link from the giveaway email to even remember what this thing looked like, but seriously, it's a DREAM! I can't believe I won and the piece/set that I won has so many options!

So this is what it looks like:
And this is what it can do....

(although mine will be in black, you still get the idea...)

It's called a Bumbleride Flite & Carry Cot by Bumbleride and it's a $396.00 value that we're getting for FREE! Oh and we didn't have a choice on color, so it will be black which will be great! I'm finishing up the paperwork that they required so it should be in our hands very soon!

We're so excited because this is such a nice piece that we probably would've never bought or even registered and now it's ours!

Thank you TheBump, we are so very grateful!

P.S. As soon as it arrives, I'll post pictures!

OMG! FABULOUS! congratulations!

it looks fancy and fun. i loved the strollers that had the bassinet-type feature on them but couldn't never justify ponying up the money to get one. now you don't have to!

no one deserves it more, you know.

Seriously, that is incredible. People drool over these strollers. I do, anyway. LOL

Wow, wow, wow. I'm SO glad that you won. I seriously can't think of anyone more deserving than you. It's YOUR turn now. Good things for you from now on.

This baby is already bringing you all kinds of luck!! I can't believe that!!! Congrats! I'm all about the blog giveaways, but you're topping the cake with this one. Last winter I won a $200 Ann Taylor Loft giftcard and thought I had won the lottery. And in the past few weeks I've won a $50 Amex giftcard, a $30 Kroger giftcard, a framed picture and a Bummas Wipes giftpack. I never enter the ones with so many entries, but someone has to win, I guess!

I am in love with your new buggy!!! So excited for you, that was a huge check off your list of things that will need to be purchased before the bambino arrives.

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
