Ooh, exciting!

Many exciting goings on over here!

First and probably only really exciting to me and my husband (maybe the dog), is that the fence is FINALLY going in today. By the end of today we should have an actual yard, not a communal football field. Yay! We moved in to our newly built house in October of 2007, so it's been ages without any backyard privacy. Kids have cut through our yard to get to the nearby high school (last year there was a huge teenaged fight in the backyards), the neighbours' toddlers constantly run through the yard (love kids but not necessarily uninvited kids) and we hardly use it because it feels like we're on display. No more! And I can finally start doing some landscaping beyond my vegetable gardens (which are doing great, btw!).

Okay on to exciting news for my readers (and me!). I'm in the process of sorting out a few (three!) upcoming giveaways here on my blog! Something sexy for the mamas, something organic for the tots, something helpful for wannabe parents. That's all the hints I'm giving! You'll have to come back to see. May I recommend following me? Be the first to know! ;)

And now for some giveaways I've come across out there today...

For baby:
  • Win a Twilight Turtle at anti-supermom! I actually have one of these already (no, I'm not entering the giveaway myself!) and it is pretty darn cool. I can't wait to have a little one to enjoy it. I'm not sure when this giveaway ends, but it just started on the 10th.

  1. That's so exciting that you're getting your fence put in! I remember how great it was when we finally got our fence last summer... Now we can run around the backyard in the nude and do whatever we please.. ok, maybe not, but it's still pretty cool to have some privacy. :)

    On a side note, I'm starting a coupon train on PN. Not sure how often you log in there, but I thought I'd give you a heads up in case you're interested..
