And on to Day 4 -- with 3 more awesome prizes!

Every baby needs a Sophie!
I can't tell you how appreciative I am of the generous sponsors who are graciously taking part in the blog's 2nd anniversary celebration! I am humbled by it all. You are the best!!

Today, I want to highlight 3 more of the retailers who jumped in feet first when they heard of the upcoming anniversary, two of which were gracious enough to participate in other giveaways over the past 2 years.

Jessica Lewis, of the San Antonio-based Flip Flops and Combat Boots, emailed me and offered a custom-made makeup bag as part of the prize package. Jessica upcycles uniforms from all branches of the military and transforms them into practical items, like purses, bags, baby items, kids' stuff, etc. What a unique, and useful, endeavour.

The above picture is what the outside of the makeup bag looks like. The winner of the prize package can choose the fabric for the inside. And Jessica has plenty of fabrics available!

Now ... you knew this was coming ... earn 5 extra entries simply by 'liking' the Flip Flops and Combat Boots FB page. But make sure you post a comment letting me know you did! Earn 10 extra entries if you, or your spouse, served in the U.S. or Canadian military. Post a comment about it if you want the extra entries!

Green Baby Clothing Company has been a long time supporter of this blog. Jill Wirth is an amazing entrepreneur, photographer, and mommy. Recently, the family went through a rough 3 weeks or so. First, little Kaiya, Jill's toddler, fell and broke her arm, which required surgery, some lovely pins and a cast. Then Jill herself fell and broke her leg, which required surgery, some lovely pins and a cast. Seriously? Stuff like that just shouldn't happen. But in the midst of it all, Jill decided to sponsor the anniversary giveaway. You gotta love her for that!

Isn't this a great logo?!

I'm not exactly sure what the prize will include, but since it's from Green Baby Clothing Company, I know it will be awesome! All Jill told me is that it is a $40 prize pack -- boy or girl. Winner's choice. To make this giveaway even more special, the winner will be announced on August 31st -- Jill's husband's birthday.

'Liking' the GBCC FB page, and letting me know about it, will earn you 5 more entries into the giveaway.

Last, but certainly not least, we come to a local company (for me). Happy Baby Company started off a number of years ago as Pittsburgh Cloth Diaper. Adam and Lilli Cannon have little ones of their own, and devote much of their time to educating and helping other moms and dads navigate the waters of cloth diapering. Their help is invaluable to many!

Opening their brick and mortar store in the western suburbs of Pittsburgh, expanded their world from just cloth diapers to a nice variety of kid-safe, mom-trusted products. They have a small classroom in the store where they hold cloth diapering orientations, complete with tips on newborn care. Happy Baby Company also served as the Pittsburgh area location for the Great Cloth Diaper Change back in April.

While I didn't need help with cloth diapering, Adam did come to my rescue one hot, hot day last summer while I was at his store. Adam is a carseat safety advocate and he discovered my carseat for Laura was not safely installed. He climbed in the back of my very hot car and worked on it until it was. By the time he emerged from the backseat, he was drenched with sweat, but satisfied that my granddaughter would be safe. I will always be grateful for that.

But, back to the contest. Happy Baby Company is throwing the ever-popular, around for 50 years, Sophie the Giraffe into the package. No child should be without a Sophie! She is truly a staple in the nursery ... and the diaper bag!

And to sweeten the pot, Adam and Lilli are throwing in a $10 gift certificate to Happy Baby Company. How cool is that?!

Again, we have extra entries up for grabs! 'Like' HBC on FB and let me know (it would be nice if you let them know I sent you!) -- 5 extra entries!

That is today's wrap-up. Tomorrow, I'll be presenting the final 3 prizes and giving you even more ways to win!

If this is your first time visiting the blog, please check out all the great items in the prize package, along with the rules of the giveaway on Monday's post.

  6. I liked the Flip Flops and Combat Boots page on Facebook. My husband is an Army Reserve veteran who served for a year in Iraq. We were engaged at the time. It was a hard year but we learned so much about our relationship and what it would take to make it work and survive. He completed 8 years with the Army Reserve and has thought about returning to the military to be a chaplain sometime after he finishes seminary. I think this company is pretty cool. Can't wait to learn more about it!
