Today was terrible. I dropped everything, forgot everything, and messed everything up. I was literally in tears by nine o'clock this morning. And then I remembered what today was.....
Today is the day we celebrate going to Africa and being supported by some awesome people and one awesome toy company. It also happens to be the day that this little blog of mine reached 400, 000 views. How is that even possible? Wow.
You may have noticed my new sponsor button from North American Bear Company.
Let me just tell you about how wonderful they are.
Well, you may recall last year when they sent my kiddos some of the most adorable toys EVER.
And then I got an e-mail from them last week saying they wanted to send my kiddos some more super cute goodies and do something to help us raise funds for our upcoming trip to Uganda.
HOW AWESOME IS THAT!?!?
Take a look at the goodies that arrived on our doorstep today.
This adorable kitty is supposed to be for Hollyn....good luck with that, right?
And can I just TELL you how excited Libby is about having a friend over to make these tutus? Oh my stars, she is BEGGING already.
Here are a few of my personal favorite things on their site:
They have the best selection, and I LOVE how wholesome all of their products are. Their catalog reminds me of the kinds of toys I played with when I was a little girl. And while they did bless my kiddos TWICE with goodies, these opinions are 100% mine. I honestly cannot sing their praises enough.
Okay, so here's the skinny:
NORTH AMERICAN BEAR COMPANY WANTS TO GIVE $75 IN CREDIT TO ONE OF MY LOVELY READERS!
Do you even know what you could do towards Christmas at your house with $75 credit from their adorable company? Or the baby gifts you could stock up on? Or the summer fun you could bring to your homestead?
I'm kinda jealous that I can't enter this one.....
Here's how you can enter:
( You can choose ANY or ALL of these ways...pick whichever one or ones that catch your eye. Just please leave a SEPARATE comment for each thing you do; one comment equals one entry.)
- Check out North American Bear Company's website and tell me how you'd spend your dinero if you win.
-Make a donation of $1 or more towards our Africa trip. Seriously, EVERY $1 makes a difference. And are still several hundred dollars shy of our fundraising goal. I will be THRILLED with ever $1 that is donated. You can use the paypal button on my sidebar, it's as simple as that.
- If you've ALREADY donated or bought a shirt or a canvas or some hair ties (which I just got another batch of, by the way), then leave a comment telling me what you did.
-Follow my blog or remind me that you already do.
-Like my blog on facebook or remind me that you already do.
- SHARE about this giveaway any way you so choose (Twitter, facebook, pinterest, instagram, whatever your heart desires). Just leave a comment for EACH way you share.
That's a LOT of ways you can enter to win. Libby will choose a winner on Friday afternoon.
So get those entries in, good luck to all of you, THANK YOU in advance, and NORTH AMERICAN BEAR COMPANY--- thanks for turning my frown upside down today.
