"Love your blog! Love, love, love the necklaces! Thanks!"

Congrats Johanna! Email me at erininsandiego@gmail.com and I'll get you in touch with Amber. :)

Whew...that was stressful. So many darling blog friends who commented - I hate that I can't send you all a necklace! Last giveaway I had around 30 comments so Ellie drew a name out of a hat. This time we had to think big and use the random number generator. Johanna was chosen - she was #37 and 3 and 7 happen to be my mom's favorite numbers so I felt pretty good about that! Congrats again Johanna!

I wanted to let you all know that the next Power of Moms Retreat is coming up on October 22-23 in New Castle, New Hampshire. If I remember right from our days living in Virginia, the fall leaves will be absolutely beautiful! I can't say enough about how wonderful the Power of Moms Retreats are. I am so glad I did this! I learned so much and made some great new friends. If you're interested, you can learn more about the Power of Moms Retreats here and the New England Retreat here. Also, all of my readers can receive $20.00 off of this retreat by using this link. Go check it out!

Here are a few more pics from the retreat I just attended taken by one of the presenters -

Melissa, a new friend from the retreat, brought her baby boy. He is Kole's exact age and every time I looked at him I missed Kole SO BADLY. Funny how it always sounds so nice to take a break from your baby but after about an hour you're dying to hold your little one again...

Felt VERY good to come home to this smile. :)

Gotta go. It's WAY past my bedtime. Have a great weekend everyone!

Man, I wish one of those would come to Kansas City or at least a little closer than NH. Then again maybe it is a good chance for me to travel on my own acting like an actual grown-up mom. :-)

That picture of Kole is AWESOME! Makes me want to squeeze that hunk-o-love all over. Thanks again for hosting the giveaway for me Erin!!

Love & Hugs~
Amber

I LOVE that you used a random number generator. I teach AP Statistics and that's what my students are learning right now, random selection. I'm impressed that you even know what a random number generator is, or how to use one. A girl of my own heart :)

Bummer I didn't win! :)

Erin-I think all our organization talk yesterday got to me. Last night i dreamed that i was taking care of Kole but he was a newborn and asleep and I put him down somewhere and I COULDN'T REMEMBER WHERE!!! And I had been to several locations with him! I was racking my brain trying to remember where I had left him and I was freaking out. I was soo afraid to tell you that i had lost him and I was frantically searching. It was AWFUL!

See-If I had just "incubated" where I had put him, I would have found him right away! :) Yes, organization on the brain. (My planner came yesterday-they sent the wrong one! Maybe that is why I lost Kole.)

Stupid Random Number Generator! :)

You're forgiven for posting that pic of Kole.

"Giveaway" and "Kole" should never be written on the same line. My heart skipped a beat.
