I thought it was high time I posted about what giveaways have done for my family and I.

I discovered the giveaway community about a year and a half ago, and promptly won a couple of wonderful books, and realized, hey this giveaway thing is awesome. I should spend more time doing that then playing facebook games. Plus I'm an insomniac, so I spend a fair amount of time when I'm feeling well enough and have enough time to do so.

I love blog giveaways, and other giveaways on the internet. They're a fun thing for me to do, and they really do pay off. I've won wonderful chocolates and snacks to feed my family. Things I probably wouldn't have bought on my own but now my family can enjoy them and we've become brand loyal as well through these.

I've become blog loyal too. I have my main three blogs I enter anything that looks awesome on. Sometimes I win twice a month,s ometimes not at all, but usally at least once every 6 weeks or so, so long as you enter with as many entries as possible and have your few you always enter, statistically you're bound to win something, and it's so much fun! I've been very lucky and I am really grateful. I've received lovely clothing items for my son, my god daughter, my neice and myself!

The food is the best though, especially in these economic times. Being poor sucks, but it's nice to be able to enter for those little treats, especially with a kid who looooves to eat, and variety is the spice of life. ;)

My friend's dropping off my God Daughter! Yay! Lily time!!!

Talk to ya'll later!

So.. I thought I was having an allergic reaction to something and had hives.

They didn't go away. And they started to hurt. And spread.

Just got home from the ER. I have Shingles, and it's in my right eye. Have some seriously expensive medicine I couldn't afford, that will hppefully keep me from going blind in my right eye. I feel awful. Don't recommend this to anyone.

My Mom would have been 62 2 days ago. It's so weird to not have her here on her birthday. Hair was here too, and my sister and I wanted to go see it in honor of her. She loved that musical, and I've never seen it, but I'm broke. Who isn't right now? Gas is insane. I'm reeeally worried about the future. Wish we would have started using renewable energy as soon as the technology was there, but the dollar is so much more important. ay yi yi.

Doing wedding planning. My wonderful and amazing friend Jaye has offered to do photos for my wedding as our wedding gift, which is a tremendous and incredible gift. She's the best photographer I know, and I am so so excited.

I've been looking at all the little details and just can't wait. Can't help feeling it's bittersweet though. Missing my Mom so much lately. Love Peter's Mom so much, but so wish my Mom could be here too. They'd be such good friends. Just found a brooch I want to give to them both, but can only give to one of them as our little wedding gift.. It's beautiful. I'm crying though thinking of how much my Mom would have loved it too.
