The awesome nurse that took care of me when I had Brenna gave me stacks of those hospital goodie bags, so I'm left with oodles of coupons. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address and which ones you'd like and they are yours!

Wednesday Riley and I made sugar cookies with vanilla and chocolate frosting to decorate. Riley was really excited about putting on the 'prinkles'! Once I had finished mixing the chocolate frosting, I gave Riley the beater to lick then went to work on my laptop. After a few minutes, I looked up and he was still working on the beater so I went back to work...then I heard his stool scoot across the kitchen floor. I looked up again just in time to catch the rascal. He had been dipping his beater in the frosting bowl and getting out big glops of frosting to eat. I had no idea! Sneaky snake! He was WIRED that night!

I've decided that I'm going to start a new feature on the Mighty B - Give it Away Sunday. I've got great stuff! Just too much of it. So if you want it, it's yours.
For the first give away...I've got samples! My cousin Deanna blessed me with her Mary Kay things when I decided to start my business. I've got some really awesome stuff and I'm running out of room to store it. So, let me know you're skin type (normal to dry, combo to oily), skin tone (ivory, beige or bronze), any skin issues you need help with (blemishes, uneven skin tone, under-eye bags, etc.), and your address and you'll get a goodie bag from me. Email me at email@example.com.
A little free post-holiday pampering!
I want to encourage my fellow bloggers to start their own Give it Away Sunday! We all have too much stuff, it's the American Way! Giving it away is a great way to bless others with something they may need and bless ourselves with a less cluttered home! I'm going to work on a button for it, I'll post it on the side of my blog for you to copy and paste into your own blog. Who's with me for a less cluttered 2009??

Here's a small recap of what's been going on in the hive...
- I finished my 30 faces in 30 days for my MK goal and got some sweet bling! Thanks to all that helped me reach it! If you weren't lucky enough to get a facial from me, let me know! A new challenge begins 12/16!
- It's been so fun watching Riley learn everything about Christmas. All those Christmas specials we've watched a million times are new again. It's great.
- We got his train table and trundles from UPS today - can't wait to see his face when he sees them on Christmas! Also got Brenna's Laugh 'n Learn Kitchen at an awesome price and free shipping! I just looked at it again and they are selling both items for twice as much as I paid for it and you have to wait 2-3 months for shipping! WOO HOO! Good Timing B!
- Brenna is getting so big - and getting her first tooth!
On a quick side note, I wanted to address all the mom's that read my blog. In light of things that have been happening in my area, I've really been thinking about my role as a mom and what it means to be a good mom. Some things have really been laying heavy on my heart lately. We are constantly being pulled in every direction and immersed in guilt of never being good enough...our houses aren't clean enough, we're not thin enough, our kids don't eat right, we're not giving 100% at work...
Some of the best advice I've ever gotten was from my sister before I had Riley.
There is no way to be a perfect mom.
But there are a million ways to be a good mom.
Our houses may not be spotless, our kids may not be eating a well balanced meal, (if anyone can give me an idea on how to get Riley to eat something other than chicken nuggets and marshmallows, I'm all ears!), and we may now be a little squishy around the middle... but at the end of the day if our kids are safe, warm, have something in their bellies, and know they are loved, we have done our job.
You are a good mom.
The Squishy B
