:: OH MAN ::

The worst blogger of the year goes to .... LORI! Man - I know there aren't too many of you out there, but I apologize for the lack of commitment to the blog lately. I've been so busy with my life, as we all are, and have had to put a few things on the back burner. I think I am getting more settled now and hope to get in my regular swing of things soon.

I'm entering the contest below because they are offering a little too much to even believe. It would be a Merry Christmas if I won. I never win, but now you all know what to get me for Christmas. :)

Glad you're back, but don't be too hard on yourself.

Also? Isn't Today's Mama the best?

Hey! You sound like me with your list of 50+ projects in a year. I have a gazillion things I want to sew and knit and crochet so I can make a million dollars in an etsy shop. Your kids are so cute. I see a lot of Sessions in them.

I think I WIN the prize for being the biggest slacker blogger. MIne hasn't been updated in MONTHS! Don't you feel better now? How are you liking the new place? Piper is getting so cute, and I think she looks like you.

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

Love, Annie
