Happy Monday to you! Hopefully Mother’s (or woman’s) day weekend was fun-filled in some way for you all. Here it was beee-yooooo-teeee-ful all weekend long; full of sun and warmth. So nice. Monday greeted me with clouds and a little rain but I’m okay with that since the weekend was a huge reward.
Part of my wonderful mom’s day gift was Sam planting 70 (yes, I said SEVENTY) strawberry plants for me. Isn't that sweet? I mean that in two ways. :) They won’t yield fruit this year but next year? Holy moley! We’re talking a lot of poundage! Can’t wait! As I’ve mentioned before strawberries are my favorite fruit on the whole planet so I’m truly excited about this. Next year when we’re picking those lovely sweet berries, Caleb will be old enough to sample as well. I heard that strawberries, being one of those things on a list of foods to avoid for kiddies (potential allergens), should wait until a child is at least two. Anyone else heard that? I’m sure some people have fed their kids strawberries before then and were fine but I want to be extra safe. That’d be sad if he was allergic.
I’m a bit late in announcing the winners of my two giveaways on my blog but don’t worry, I’ve notified all of them already. I have three winners to announce so here we go:
Winner of the Baby Carrot Borage Butter Eczema Cream: Donna
Winner of the Baby Carrot Cubeba Mint Cream: Sharanya
Winner of the Baby Carrot Mama package: Averie of LoveVeggiesYoga
Congrats to all of them! Thanks to everyone who entered and big thanks to Wild Carrot Herbals for sponsoring these awesome giveaways.
