My Prayers Have Been Answered!!!!

See that post below? Well, guess what??? I WON THE BIKE! Thank you Jesus! I had been praying about it, because I had $70 saved up, but I told the Lord that if He wanted me to give the money to Him, that I would, whether I won the bike or not. So now, I just need to figure out where I want to give. We have a team from our church going to Mozambique in just about a week and a half, so it might go there, to help fund the trip.

YAY!!!!! I'm SO excited!!!! Thank you Schwinn and Resourceful Mommy!

I've Been Praying About a Bicycle

Some of you may know that I am on a slow journey of trying to get healthy and lose a LOT of weight. I have been wanting to get, and praying about getting, a new bicycle. I have $70 saved up, but that hasn't grown since Christmas. We just don't have a whole lot of money right now....kind of like pretty much everyone else, I'm sure. So, my dreams of a bicycle are kind of on hold now. But, if I could WIN one, I would be absolutely THRILLED! I have about 100 pounds to lose, and so a comfy bike would seriously help! I would LOVE to win this bicycle being given away on Resourceful Mommy:

You can enter to win it too! There will be THREE winners chosen! But hurry, because your time ends on Tuesday, June 16th at 11:59 PM.

A Blankie to the Nose--and a Giveaway

I love how my 2 year old will comfort himself by rubbing the edge of his nose with the edge of a soft blankie. I think it's kind of funny, but kind of cute too. I love this age, when they find soft things to comfort themselves with.

Speaking of soft blankies, Etsy It Up is featuring a giveaway of a two handmade burp cloths from Sprout Boutique. Want to win? Enter before June 8th.
