I Won!

...this adorable chocolate and pink pettiskirt with matching flower from Randi at Piggy's & Petal's. So I took the winning one for Sandy and then ordered a matching one for Abby. Oh, I can't wait to see my two little girls in their matching skirts!!

I won this giveaway from one of my new favorite blogs, The Idea Room. Thanks to my sister Molly for introducing me to it! It was kind of a fluke that I entered at all because I seriously never win anything! Really! In 7 years of working for the same company that gave away fantastic prizes at the summer/Christmas parties, I never once won anything! Bill did win movie tickets once. In fact, one summer the party got rained out and they figured there were enough prizes for all but 3 people to win something. Yup, I was one of those 3 people!

As I was checking out the other cute things on Piggy's and Petal's I also saw that Randi makes the cutest custom bows. I found Sandy's Easter dress, but I have been debating about what to do with Sandy's head (I say head instead of hair because she really doesn't have much hair to speak of) and haven't had any luck finding a cute hat, so I also asked Randi if she'd make something for her. I'm excited to see what she comes up with! Here's Sandy's Easter dress: So a free pettiskirt/flower set equals me buying another pettiskirt/flower set and a custom bow... yeah, maybe it's a good thing that winning is a rare thing for me! :) Of course, there is a 20 percent off offer for everything on her site this month...

What a cute dress! Easter is such a fun holiday with kids...but then, I guess they pretty much all are, right?

As for your diaper question - I have no good answer. Onesies are always my solution. Benjamin wore a onesie year round until he was 3. The diaper alone option for Bella that day was out of necessity, but not by choice. It doesn't happen too often. The problem is that without onesies, even if she's leaving it alone, diapers sag and leak as she runs around in them. In the summer I usually just let my kids (while they are in diapers) wear a onesie and shorts. That way they're not hot and the diaper still stays in place. However, I have another friend who started duct taping her kids' diapers when they got to the age where they started taking them off. She was very happy with the result. :)

What a darling skirt! How fun to win. I've only won random things (like a two-foot zucchini). The yellow dress is adorable too.
