A shout out...

I just wanted to give a shout out to the ladies at . They are just awesome. Their site is alot of fun with giveaways and contests. I recently participated in the "horsing around photo contest", Tristan won 2nd place and a $100 gift card to this awesome site If you haven't gone there before, you need to. They have the most adorable rocking horses and LOTS more, and their prices are unbeatable.

There was a little misunderstanding with the contest, but when notified, Susan and Janice cleared it up immediately. If you like contests and giveaways, this is definately the site to go to. Thanks Janice, Susan, and A rocking horse to love. Tristan is going to love his new toy!

The gift that keeps on giving.

I know a lot of you are trying to be careful with your money right now, so I thought I'd throw this idea out there for a Valentine's gift. Chad LOVES it when he gets these. I started making them when we were poor college students. He has liked them so much that I continue to make them periodically. It's a ticket book full of coupons for things like: A back massage, an hour of game time (Chad loves computer games), A treat run, A football day (snacks provided), Meal of your choice, breakfast in bed, etc. Just anything I think he would enjoy. He has often said these are his favorite gifts. I even overheard him talking on the phone one day about his "ticket book" and how cool it is! So, if money is tight this Valentines Day, keep this in mind. Maybe your sweetheart will love it as much as mine!
