Modge podge of thoughts:

. Remember when I won this giveaway? I finally received my $100 visa gift card in the mail! To say that I was excited would be an understatement! EEK! I knew just what to do with it! My computer has been broken for the last couple of months! In the mean time I have had to share a computer with my mom. So with the extra cash I was able to bring my laptop in and get it fixed! It is so nice to be back in business with my (new) old computer!
. I also have some VERY big news! Since February I have been working as a nanny for my niece and nephew. Recently my Mom, due to medical necessity, dropped her hours at work. She will only be working two days a week, one of which my step-dad will be able to care for the kids. So I am no longer needed in the home. I had originally planned to only nanny for a few months, so I was excited to be able to look for a new job! Well last week I applied with a company I worked for in 07-08 working with mentally handicapped adults. It was to this day, one of the best jobs I ever had! A few days later I got a call back, interviewed, and was hired! I completed my orientation today, and start on the job training next week! :) I am so thankful that I was hired so quickly, and that I get to work in a job field I love!


. The bonus to the above is that my son will be able to stay home with my mom! Which means NO DAYCARE! Not only will we be able to swap child care services resulting in no daycare fees, but also my son will be with someone I trust! I don't have to question what values or habits he will be learning! I know that my mom will continue to work with him, and teach him new things! I am SO very blessed!


.I am beyond excited about Halloween! I am so excited for Aidyn to wear his mystery costume! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays... okay wait.. I pretty much love EVERY holiday! :)



. My brother is contemplating moving back home from FL! My brother and I are SUPER DUPER close! I miss him so much, and I would be THRILLED if he did! I am praying that he makes the decision that is right for him... but this may mean that in the future the two of us would find a place together! :)
. I have a SUPER DUPER DE DUPER exciting contest coming up VERY shortly! I have been working with VIC from Freckles and Fudge to bring you "Mommy Bloggers" out there some pretty awesome swag (over $500 worth!)! Stay tuned for details!

. You only have until midnight tomorrow to enter THIS giveaway! Get on it! :))

. I hope you know I love you! I have this weekend all to myself and plan on catching up on blogs all weekend! eek! Can't wait!

Happy Wednesday!
