First I owe a HUGE thank you to everyone that entered. More entered than I expected which was exciting. I really enjoyed hearing from all of you, getting to know you, and even hearing about other heart journeys or other medical journeys. I even met a cardiologist wife (Hi Jenn!) and a mom of twins who has TOF (same as Bentley) that had surgery when she was a child (Thanks for sharing your journey Mitzi, it's amazing!). In the below picture you can see how I spent my Friday night. Because I allowed people to have 5 more entries I couldn't use the random website to quickly find someone.. I know I know.. I didn't have THAT many entries but the kids keep me super busy so I'd say 50 or more here I come. ha! But again, because I allowed people to have 5 entries if they re-posted then I didn't know of any other way than the good ol' days. It may not look like very many below, but it really is. I have them folded tiny and the camera is zoomed in. It took a good while to do this but it was so worth it.

If this is not a sign from God then I don't know what is... The Pifer's this is your year babe! This was a bit of a surprise to me. There were so many that entered then a lot of you re-posted and got 5 entries. I do personally know The Pifer's.. well kind of. Tiffany Pifer and I actually went to school together. I knew who she was but I never really knew who she was.. if that makes sense. I knew of her but did not know her. We were connected YEARS after graduating through the Internet. Now let me explain a little more.. Tiffany Pifer and her husband do not have any children, but they have been trying to conceive for 3 years now.. I have been praying daily for this family.. I do believe this is a sign.. I decided to go ahead and pull another name.. and what do you know... THE PIFER'S, again!!! UH-MAZING! Please keep The Pifer's in your prayers. This is one couple that is so in love and waiting patiently for a miracle child. You can read more on her journey here.

I decided to go ahead and give-a-way another set. And that one goes to Emily. Emily is expecting and she will be finding out very soon if it's a girl or a boy.

The Pifer's and Emily.. send me an email and let me know your address!

Ok boys.. you're next! Give me a few days to find some cute boy fabrics and I will go ahead and do this one.. I'll keep you posted so keep watching!!!

And thanks to all of your praying for Bentley.. I know I say this all the time but I am so grateful!!


  1. Yey fro Tiffany! I'm not superstitions, but I do believe in God's promises and (even though can seem a bit silly) I too believe that this is a HUGE sign for Tiffany. God is big and He is good. All the time. He delivers and He loves above all else.

    As soon as I find out what I'm having I'll be writing to order some for my lil Lima Bean. Do you make anything else, or just burpcloths?

  2. I follow the Pfifers too and that's just amazing!!!!!! I most definitely believe it's a awesome is that :)

  3. thanks for stopping by my blog and for the sweet comment :) i will pray be praying for the pfifers.

  4. oh i hope thats a sign for them!!!!

  5. cool is that. I've got something else to throw in the mix. You know how on my blog the other day, I offered to give a free hat away to the 1st person who went over to Julie from Julie's Blog Designs to get a blog makeover? Well, guess who that was? You guess it, it was Tiffany! Now she'll have burp cloths and a hat for her baby!

    Also love the new three column look of your blog. Doesn't it feel good to be able to have so much more room to put all your stuff!

    Have a great weekend with the fam!

  6. Thats cute. I met Tiffany through the blogworld and now we follow each other. What a sweet story. I feel 2010 they will have a little Pifer running around.

    And I liked the way you personalized up your post about the winners.

  7.
