Hints, Nail Polish, Etc.


Okay, so I have to know . . .

The week before I announced I was pregnant I was writing for the blog and I decided to sneak a little hint about expecting baby #2 into the post.

So . . . who caught it?

I’m not going to tell you which post it was, or how I incorporated my hint, because I’m going to do a giveaway next week.  Whoever can tell me which post has the hint and what it was will get major-extra-giveaway points!  I’m giving you a head start by mentioning it now.  It will be in one of these five posts:

What We’ve Been Up To (Catch Up)

Making Conversation

Goodbye, Miss Quince

First Birthday Parties

Mascara Crisis

So send me an e-mail telling me what you think and I’ll tell you if you’re right!  And I’ll give you extra entries next week.


Speaking of the First Birthday Parties post, let’s look at the poll, shall we?

How much would you/did you spend on your child’s first birthday party (including decorations, presents, birthday outfit, food, and any other details)?

We didn't do a 1st birthday "party", per se - 4 (13%)

-Under $100 - 11 (36%)

-$100-200 - 12 (40%)

-$200-300 - 2 (6%)

-$300-500 - 3 (10%)

-Over $500 dollars - 0 (0%)

-I can't really put a price tag/price limit on it - 0 (0%)

Votes: 30

You all are so thrifty!  Most of you thought $0-200 was a good amount to spend, and 16% would spend somewhere from $200-500.  But nobody wanted to spend more than $500 dollars (at least not anyone that voted). 


I told you all I would tell you how much I spent on Wyatt’s cowboy birthday party . . . I spent right around $100, give or take five bucks.  Which I’m pretty happy with, considering that included everything, including presents and food!  Plus I gathered all my decorations over a six month period, so it didn’t hit my wallet too hard anyway.


And finally, in case you haven’t noticed, I haven’t had any Moms and Babies features for a while – and that’s because I officially put the feature on break for the summer (I’m just finally getting around to telling you now). 

However, I will be starting it up again in the fall, so if you are interested in being featured, shoot me an e-mail!  I do ask that you are at least a follower of mine in order to be featured, and that you are familiar with my blog, because that’s only fair.  I’ll review your blog and get back to you with the questions to answer!

See this page to check out previous features.

Once I get a few moms to feature I’ll send out a schedule and let you all know the start date.  I’m looking for moms to feature from September until the beginning of December (because after that I’ll be taking a break again – you know, having a newborn and all!).  Anyway, the point is that I have a limited number of weeks to fill, so it’s first come, first serve

I’m looking forward to getting the feature going again when Autumn arrives!


Okay, that’s all.  Except I wanted to say that I found a new nail polish I like:


It’s called “Sinful Color Professionals”.  Kind of a weird name, but dare I say I almost like it better than Essie?  Because I do.  It goes on just as smooth and it seems to last just as long.  And it’s way cheaper – $2 a bottle at Target!

The colors are a little more wild, but sometimes I like a bold color.  So I’ll be buying more of this in the future I think!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

love that you can throw a great 1st birthday party without breaking the bank! I'm already starting to brainstorm for Elyse's party and I can see how spending could easily get out of control!

Kristin said...

Tanner and I would love to be featured :) Sounds fun!

Stacy said...

Kristin said...

By the way, I totally missed any hint!!

Brittney Galloway said...

Yay for bringing back the Moms and Babies feature- I love reading and getting to know different moms!

You know, when I read your catch up post for the first time, I totally did a double take (or maybe a triple?) and had to read and re-read the part about the movie you went to see before it dawned on me there actually WAS a movie titled that and not just the book. Because at first I thought you were announcing something then. BUT, that might just be a decoy hint, hmmm... sneaky, sneaky!

I think you did great planning Wyatt's party for $100! I've said it before, but I'll say it again; it turned out so cute!

Vanessa Miller said...

I sent you an email with my guess!

Melanie said...

Nice nail color!! I'm going to have to look for that next time I'm in Target! Going to check your posts and look for the 'hint'!!

The Lovely One said...

I looked through all those posts and I didn't see a hint! I'm not very observant! I was sure it would be in the Catching up post.... I thought maybe you had smuggled an EPT in the background of one of the pictures!

Kara @ Just1Step said...

So...could I do a SECOND moms and babies post?? Haha I mean if other people are rushing to get in, I know I had my turn. But I am wondering how things will change with numero dos...

Rachel said...
