Hola! Or, now that I am back in the States...Hello! Our trip to Roatan was a positively dreamy vacation. I can't wait to share pics and all the decadent details with you.
That's right...we are welcoming AFS and Knight Baby #2 into our world in January of 2012. About 4 days after my 30th birthday, I was still suffering from a hangover that just would not go away. Hmmm...I got to counting and a thinking and guess what? B-A-B-Y! As of right now, I am officially on "bump watch" seeing as I've gone from this at 12 weeks:
to this at 14:
Sheesh, baby is making its presence known! I am about 15 weeks right now, and hopefully through the worst of the nausea and fatigue. Oh, and, I am happy to report that maternity shorts/pants/jeans are just as comfortable as I remember. Ha!
Okay, so now that you know why the baby blanket giveaway is SO apropos, let me tell you a bit about this great site. Fill In The Blankie is a great company that sells ultra personalized baby blankets. We're not talking about a little monogram here and a cutesy date there, no, we are talking about mucho personalization on all four sides of a plethora of sweet, sassy, and soft baby blankets.
They have all kinds of super cute and stylish blankets to choose from, plus a ton of great fonts. Stumped on what to say? No worries, they have a great website which is easy to use and provides great text suggestions for personalizing your baby blanket.
The lucky AFS winner of the contest will get a code that will be good for $150 towards any blanket of their choosing!
Here's how to enter (you do not have to have a blog or website to enter...just enter the comment form as anonymous, put your name next to your comment, and check next week to see if you've won!):
You have 4 ways to enter. You can enter 4 times, with 4 separate comment entries, or pick and choose. For each method, PLEASE leave me a separate comment!
Method 1) (MANDATORY) Leave a comment telling me which blanket you would choose, thread color, and what it would say (generally speaking - no need to make all the decisions now, of course!).
Method 2) Become a blog follower, and leave me a separate comment OR leave a separate comment telling me you already are a follower!
Method 3) Tweet, facebook, or post about it in one of your online chat/community groups and leave a comment with the link to the comment.
Method 4) Write your own blog post and leave a comment with a link to your blog post.
(P.S. If you are having a hard time getting your comments to enter, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will try to enter them for you. I don't know why Blogger is being so stubborn. Grrr.)
See? Isn't that easy? The winner will be announced next Thursday (July 21) morning, and will be chosen using random.org.
Are you one of those adorable people who just can't wait? Bless your heart. I am one of those people, so I completely understand. Lucky for you, the peeps at Fill In The Blankie are giving AFS readers 20% off through Wednesday, July 27th! Even if you don't win, you'll have nearly a week to use that code to maximize your savings goodness.

The folks at FITB were super generous, and let me get a blankie too! A full review with tons of pictures will happen next week, too. In short, I was super pleased with the process, shipping, and product, but want to give you guys all the details next week (plus show you my cute creation!).
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. The Knight's family is in town, plus Benton is coming (my longlost BFF and college roomie), so I am really stoked for the weekend!
Artsy Fartsy and Adios,
