Now today...you can earn an entry two ways today! First, blog about my giveaway. Basically if you have a blog (I don't care how many readers you have...even if it's just your mom lol...blog it!) go ahead and do an entry about my giveaway. You could write something like "hey, there is this Etsy shop that is the coolest Etsy shop in the history of Etsy shops and you all need to check it out! And she also has the coolest blog ever in the history of blogs and you need to check that out too!"
...or a simple "hey, check this out" with a link to my Etsy shop and my blog would suffice ;-) Basically to earn your entry you just have to blog *something* and include a link to both my Etsy shop and my blog. Then comment either here on the blog or on my Facebook page telling me you did so. This will earn you one entry!
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!!! Don't have a blog? That's fine....just do a mini "blog" update on your Facebook status! Post on your Facebook about my giveaway (make sure you choose to make it "public" so that I can see it!) and also share a link to my blog this link here ....that will earn you one entry too! Wanna do both--The blog update *and* the Facebook update? Then you can earn 2 entries today!
And remember, whatever you do, make sure to comment on my Facebook page or blog telling me what you did so that I know to write your entries down :-) Thanks!
Now on to Fashion Friday. If you were just here for the free stuff you don't have to read any futher LOL. If you wanna see adorable pictures though, keep reading!
Today's Fashion Friday isn't going to focus on a brand....but on the joys of second hand shopping! I'm not someone who buys my child's entire wardrobe second hand, but I'm also definitely not someone who thinks "eww...I can't put used clothes on my kids!" ....I like clothes in general, whether they are new or old! But for today's plug let me just say, if you haven't ever looked for second hand stuff before you are missing out! Personally I don't have much luck at garage sales. I thinks it's a lot of work and many of the clothes are often cheap brands and pretty worn (although my parents sometimes find awesome deals, so maybe I'm just not looking hard enough!). But there is a second hand consignment shop near me that has aweome name brand stuff. If you go at the right time when they are running sales you can pick up Gymboree, Baby Gap, Children's Place, and more for just a couple bucks! Yesterday I found some awesome deals there. A Gymboree dress and shirt for $1, a baby gap blazer for $3, and a super cute fake leather bomber jacket (is that what it's called?) for only $5. It's a little big on Raya, but I just couldn't pass it up!
Clearly she loves it :-P And the brown looks awesome with her eyes, don't you think?
I've also had great luck on ebay from time to time....especially if you are looking for a specific "line" from one of the more expensive stores like Gymboree or Gap. You have to pay attention to shipping costs and stuff, and I never ever get into bidding wars! ...but if you periodically check you can stumble across great finds. My long time readers may remember this awesome, like new, Gap sweater that I just had to have....and after many weeks checking I finally scored one for cheap. Still one of my favorites!
|Grandma bought Sawyer and Raya balloons yesterday :-P|
|She's snot nosed again today. Blah.|
So there you go...never underestimate how cute used clothes can be!
And now to end today, some more random pictures of our photoshoots because frankly my girls are adorable and I can never narrow down the pictures I want to share :-)
|So when I took this picture I thought "yay, this is better than that really weird smile she's been doing!"|
|...and then she did this :-P|
|She thinks it's cool to make "funny faces" now|
|She crawls around with this cupcake in her mouth :-P|
|Crappy picture, but look at those eyes! Be still my heart :-)|
|I fear her "attitude" as a teenager lol|
|Now *that's* the smile I love!|
|She said her new coat tasted good :-P Thankfully I had already washed it!|
|Happy Friday everyone!|
