6 Degrees of Blogging

I was catching up with the blogs I follow in Google Reader and came across my newest follower, fickleinpink, the dark side's blog post "6 Degrees of Blogging". She came across this via Julia's blog, Work, Wife, Mom...Life. If you want to join in click here for the rules.

I started on my blog with the blogger who left me the most recent comment Rita at One 2 Try, then from her blog I went to the first blog link I found which was Tami at Hearts Make Families, then went to the last comment left on her blog which was from Nichol at Kiddies Corner Deals, from there I went to the first blog link I found which was 5 Minutes for Mom, from there I went to the latest forum activity blog link which was Mary at 512 Kidz and finally for the 6th blog I went to the first blog link I found on Mary's blog, so here is the blog that I am featuring:
Seeryus Mama buttonSky at Seeryus Mama.
She blogs about parenting, reviews and giveaways.
I had already been following One 2 Try, Hearts Make Families and 5 Minutes for Mom, so the other blogs are all new to me. What a great way to meet some new bloggers! Thanks for getting this started Julia!

Expo and Outside

Today, we went to the Baby Kid Expo in St. Charles. I worked at the MomsLikeMe.com booth for a few hours, while Dave and Kaitlynn walked around. Kaitlynn got an elephant balloon made, got her face painted like a butterfly and had a flower balloon bracelet made. Dave entered to win a stroller and a car seat. Yes, I know we have these things, but we are not particularly fond of Kaitlynn's car seat. I did so much research on car seats and thought I was picking a good one, but we just don't like it. We are in the market for a new one, but it would be great if we could win one or I could review one and then get to keep it!
(sorry these are blurry, they are from my cell and Kaitlynn wouldn't stand still)

While working at the booth / table, I got to see some friends from MLM and a fellow blogger Trena. After working, I walked around with Dave and Kaitlynn. We had a lot of fun. There is one picture that I can not post yet because we may be making an announcement in the next week or two (and I don't want to ruin it). It is such a cute picture though, so I can't wait!


After we got home, Kaitlynn played out in the yard. While Dave mowed the lawn, I vacuumed the house and Kaitlynn climbed the tree. She also played with Mya and Leah.

After Kaitlynn went to bed, Dave and I had dinner outside by the chiminea. I love relaxing outside in the spring evenings with the chiminea going!

A Past Win

I just realized that I forgot to post about something I won a few months back. I entered a contest back in January on Bri's blog Silver Savings, Freebies and Giveaways for a Flirty Apron. On February 3rd, she contacted me about winning. I chose the Sassy Black Apron and was super excited about winning. I wanted this apron so bad! I can't believe I forgot to post about it. I guess I was just too excited!
Isn't this one super cute?
Thanks so much Bri (and sorry I didn't post about it sooner)!

Mommy

The other day Kaitlynn made Annabelle and herself bracelets.

Friday, Kaitlynn and daddy made me a bracelet.
