What Christmas is all about...

I know I said that a give away was coming.... & it still is... but as I sat down today to post about it I saw this artical that really spoke what Christmas is all about to me & I felt I needed to share....

Secret Santas in 3 states spread cheer, $100 bills:

I wont share the whole story here... I want you to go read it... but I do want to share that to me... THIS is what Christmas is all about... I have been in the shoes of the woman that was blessed by this secret santa... I know what it is like to have nothing & small babys to care for in the dead of winter... I know how proud we are as mommas to not ask for help & keep trudging along like nothing is wrong praying every night that there will be enough food on the table or that the heat will be on that day.

Please.... be a blessing to a stranger this holiday season.... & all year around for that matter... offer to buy the elderly ladies groceries that is standing behind you in the check out line.... or get a tank of gas for the family of 10 shoved into the rusty old chevy at the pump next to you.... do they "deserve it?" who cares... just DO IT... its not your job to decide who deserves what & when... its just your job to help anyone & everyone you can when you can...

Be the blessing friends... & you wont belive the blessings it will bring!
Happy Holidays!


P.S. Giveaway info on Monday....

Now on Facebook!

So I decided that I need to close down my Bada Blingg MySpace for a short while... I have had some shipping "issues" that I wont get into here but due to the UNRELYABLE post office & my hubby I have some seriously angry customers... UGH! So I thought I would shut down MySpace for a very short while & stick mainly with Etsy... & then start to build a new set of policies & work on my facebook...

You should check it out if you get the chance...Here.

And dont forget... sometime this week I will be posting details on a VDay giveaway!!
So keep checking back!

I hope everyone has an awesome week!

First Day of school & other happenings...

Yesterday was the firt day of school... ((Im late sharing this I know... but soon you will find out why...))

Its hard to believe that I have a Freshman ... a 7th grader... a 1st grader & Bella is in PreK! Where has the time gone! I remember when that freshman boy was heading off to his first day of Kindergarden crying his eyes out for me... & now he is almost a man!

& little Miss Bella...

She did great for her first time away from me... a little worried at first but she warmed up real quick...

I think I was much more worried than she was... & I cryed all the way home...

My Big first grader was super ready to start the school year... & even tho he was worried that he would "HATE" 1st grade he hopped in the van & told me all about his rocking first day as a 1st grader! ((he even loved Mrs Cruise... surprise!))

And even more exciting than the first day of school... was the 6 hour stay in the emergancy room with London due to a severe hip sprain durring football practice... I still say my baby is too little for football! but what do I know!! He is mayjorly depressed about it cuz he will miss the first real game & have to be on crutches for a week or so... but I am so thankful it is just a sprain... & I am PRAYING that tonight we wont have any surprises... 3 nights in a row with little to no sleep starts getting to girl!

okay... off to nap!
