I am not a winner. But you might be!

Ugh, yesterday was an everything fail.

When Little Evan and I got downstairs in the morning, I realized no one put the leftovers away from dinner the night before (which was the chili I thought was going to be terrible but was actually really good). So I disposed of it properly and responsibly in the appropriate container put the pot next to the dog’s water so he could finish it off and I wouldn’t have to scrape it all into the trash. Then I went about my important morning business of checking email/reading morning tweets/starting in on my reader. 20 minutes of total silence later I realized TOTAL SILENCE was probably a bad sign and went to look for Little Evan.

I found him standing next to the baby gate, using his foam hockey stick to reach over, scoop the chili out of the pot and then licking it off the stick.

TOTAL MOM FAIL.

The rest of the day went…pretty much the same. With more shouting. And less chili. And NO NAPS.

So I apologize for not posting any giveaway winners OR pictures of the 3rd floor renovation yesterday. I promise I will have at least a few pics up soon, even though they won’t be of a totally finished and decorated bedroom. And the new playroom/nursery? Well, I’ll be lucky if that’s done before Baby Girl is 2, let alone before she’s born. WHY did I think I could get all this done in 48 hours!?

Anyways, I have TWO winners to announce!

The winner of the Peggy Ann Design matching pom-pom pins is…

#15 Desiree! She is a fellow Patriots fan & a local, real-life, in person friend so I’m super happy for her! Desiree, I sent Hannah your email so hopefully she’ll be contacting you soon so you can tell her what colors you want.

And pssst – for those who didn’t win, Hannah is having a sale so be SURE to check out her store again!

The winner of the aPearantly Sew giveaway is…

#38 Nicci @ Changing the Universe!! Congrats! I emailed Alison your info so she should be contacting you soon. Good luck choosing something from her shop though, she added a WHOLE bunch of new items (including Christmasy things!) this week, so it’s even harder than it was when I first posted the giveaway!

Remember, the last three giveaways (Gussy, my Phoebe Mouse and Hugs & Kisses Designs) are still open so get in your entry soon!

    I’m sorry, I know it was possibly-toxic chili, but that’s HYSTERICAL.

      I couldn’t even bring myself to yell at him, I was so impressed with his problem-solving skills. Kid’s going to be an engineer for sure.

    I laughed out loud, where “laugh” is “snort horribly, causing a bit of sinus pain” so, you know, thanks for that. :) Clever, clever baby.

    Niko managed to snort up some ground black pepper out of the pepper shaker yesterday. OH BABIES.

  4. I’m just finally catching up on my blog reading and I saw this! YAY! Thanks so much :)

    Oh my goodness – Evan is a genius! The visual I got of him reaching ove the gate with a hockey stick – hysterical!

    So hilarious!! I’m sure the chili was not toxic. Germs are good for his immune system ;)! Sorry your day was so tough. The new room looks fantastic! You are amazing for doing all this with a baby due next month.

    thank you for this story!! my son was born thursday and we’ll just say that while he is a delight, feeding him is not. I was near tears, sitting in his room trying to muster the courage to put my breasts back into the pump when I clicked on your page and literally laughed out loud at your brilliant son. a teeny bit of brightness went a long way.

    • bebehblog says:

      Barbra, congrats on your son!! I’m so happy for you! And please please feel free to email me if there’s anything I can do/say to help. God knows I had enough troubles in the baby feeding department to offer some support.
