Setting the Stage

I'm gleaning from another blog this I attempt to tackle my three running to do lists this post was and is a gentle reminder of how and why we do the things we do.

Check out Nester's post at (In)Courage on "Setting the Stage" here.

Have a blessed Wednesday!

Hi Y'all!

Just a note to THANK-YOU all so much for your interesting, amusing, creative and colorful blog name suggestions.

Tonight the hubs and I are hosting our small group so we will discuss them tomorrow and then I'll announce the winner!

Until then, and I know you will all be waiting with baited breath (ha!), I'll share one of my favorite pictures of hubs and our pinkies.

My First Blog Contest!

Happy New Year! I hope that you and your family had a wonderful and blessed holiday season. We truly had a great Christmas surrounded by family and friends, a little bit slower pace than years past, but with a very prego mama running the show it seemed like the perfect speed.

I am excited to kick off 2010 with my very FIRST blog contest:

"New Baby, New Name!"

I need your help girls, Baby Baker is due sooner than later and in case you hadn't heard - we will be adding a significant splash of blue to our oh-so-pink house. We are very excited about our new family member and each night from 9-11pm as he wiggles and dances around I get more and more anxious to see this little man in person.

But, with two pink and one blue we can't really continue as "The Pink Bakers" - and yes, pink plus blue would make some shade of purple, but somehow the "Purple Bakers" doesn't have the same ring to it. So, I thought what a better way to get a new name for my blog than to make it into a contest - with the final prize yet to be revealed - don't worry, it WILL be something good!

Of course, it's not just up to me - the "hubs" will have his say and we'll review the entries together - if you know him at all you know he's particular and has opinions - so get your thinking cap on.

You can submit multiple entries for what you think my new blog name should be anytime from now up until 10pm next Wednesday - January 13th. Then "hubs" and I will review them and decide on our favourite and announce the winner within 48hours of the contest closing.

I look forward to hearing all your great ideas.
