The lovely and generous Steph over at Pumpkin Love is letting me host a giveaway for this adorable, handmade baby blanket. It's about 2.5 ft x 3 ft, making it perfect for the car seat, swaddling or stroller. She made it herself, and it has great gender neutral colors (teal and green), so it's just perfect for a baby gift.
To enter in the giveaway leave a comment! I'll draw a random winner on Monday!
Secondly, I feel I must answer a question. I received an email from a gal who wrote, "Liz, I've enjoyed your blog for a while now, but all this baby stuff is getting a little old. Are you becoming a mommy blogger? Please say no."
Today I talked my mom. I said, "Hey mom, how are you doing?"
She responded, "The dog farted on my pillow."
Know what my very first thought was?
"That's hilarious. I must blog about it."
Why? Because as a writer and a blogger, my life is subject matter.
People who have kids, out of work husbands, and brand new houses blog about them. People with tiny apartments, peanut allergies and gardens blog about them. That's what a blog is. It's not fiction, it's real life. And my real life, right now, consists of heartburn, swollen feet and an unfinished baby nursery. I will continue to blog about Matt's cooking, our house projects and my book. I'll blog about my mom's gaseous dog, my sister who eats fried scorpions and the blue-haired woman down the street who walks her poodle while wearing a puffy jacket with the word "sassy" embroidered on the back. I'll blog about life. And sadly, for those who don't like babies, Jane will be a big whopping part of it. Hopefully that answers the mommy blogger question once and for all.
But back to the giveaway... don't forget to comment to win Steph's cute blanket!
