Happy Panda, Happy Manda!

Less than a week ago, I was surprised with a very exciting e-mail. Audrey from Mama Loves Giveaways and Pinks and Blues had e-mailed me to let me know that I had won the Happy Panda Baby Onesie! (check out their blog - they have a little snip-let about the winner... oh, wait. That's me!!) Let me back up just a second - Whoa, I'm excited! Lately, I've found a few cute contests, and I couldn't resist. I entered, and even though I had no expectations of winning anything whatsoever, I just thought it was really fun, and I got to see some really cute stuff.

Well, last Wednesday Audrey e-mailed me to let me know that they HAD already chosen a winner for the super-cute Happy Panda Onesie, and they had never gotten back to her... So they randomly chose again AND I WON! Oh, I was SO excited!!! And I still am - that sweet little onesie got here today just in time for St. Patrick's Day!!! My one *grrr* is that I only have my camera phone, but I still got some really great pics!

Oh my gosh! Isn't little baby-boo SO cute in her little St. Patrick's Happy Panda Onesie?!!!

Here you can see the cute little logo a lot better - I don't know if I've mentioned this, but I ADORE pandas! Can't get enough of them - honestly can't even tell you how many I have here in the house.
Even though it's a bit blurry, I love this shot - Livia had just plopped down and I moved the camera just in time.

And here's the proud Mama, and her beautiful baby in her Irish Greens! (Perry's side of the family does have some Irish in it... none that I know of in mine - mostly German - Dutch)

And one more of me & Livie - I love her AND her onesie!

I cannot say THANK YOU enough to both The Happy Panda and Mama Loves Giveaways for this absolutely wonderful prize! Audrey, a special thank you also goes to you, since you contacted me & e-mailed me back and forth. (Audrey has a little boy just a little bit older than Livia - how cool! Should I wait just a few years to start playing matchmaker...? hehe!) Anyway, my utmost thanks and appreciation goes out to all of you.

I feel kinda bad that I'm just now getting a chance to put all this up here, but we've had a wonderfully busy day. Miss Maggie Boo came over for a visit today - she stayed until the afternoon, and she & Livia had a blast! I love it when those girls get to spend time together - I hope that they grow up to be as close as sisters!

Shortly after Miss Maggie left, we left to meet Bill & Trilby out to eat at Logan's. They told us about REALLY cheap meals they have every Tues. & Wed. - 2 for like $14! With drinks and everything, our bills were both under $20. We had a good time.

And then afterward, Perry and I drove around for a little bit and talked history. Livia fell asleep in her seat, and we took the opportunity to learn presidents! And when I say 'we' I really mean 'me'. Perry already already knows all the presidents forward, backward, and a ton'a facts about all of them! I've got at least half of them down pat... I WILL LEARN THEM ALL! Oh, I'm so thankful for a History-Buff husband!

Today has been such a wonderful day, I almost don't want it to end... But all good things must come to a close. And right now, I'm ready to lay down beside my husband, close my eyes, and have sweet dreams! Love to you all and God Bless!

She's so cute!

Now about the President's. You need to go get a kids meal at Chick-fill-a.

They have President cards in them that are pretty cool. Worth saving.

Don't you just love those days, where everything seems so perfect and you just don't want the day to end.

Wishing you many more days that you just don't want to end. Days where everything seems easy and days that make you smile.

Love to you and yours

Wow, what a cutie pie!
I JUST NOW, JUST THIS VERY Minute, well... maybe 2 or 3 minutes ago by now, since I stopped to read your blog post... LOL, finished the hanging basket and put it in a mailer, I will send it out first thing in the morning, sorry it took so long, there are a couple things I don't like about it, but don't look at the back and you won't see too many mistakes!!!

I hope it's what you have in mind. Hugs, Nan

We bought the President Special on DVD that the History Channel did. I recommend it. Although it is a lil' one sided....Says Clinton was a good Pres! Ha!
Oh I'm getting off track here anyway it is very interesting. It also has a section on the President's that's what I like! :) HeeHee
Hope your having a *Fabulous* evening....
