The August Break 2011: Pic 17


Today we received an exciting package in the mail.


You see, we recently won a generous giveaway from

Jennifer is the sweet lady behind that website.
What's behind her blog name, you wonder?

She writes:
"Embracing the sweet and messy moments of life is what my blogging journey is all about. As we all know, life can be sweet and beautiful {like cupcakes} and yet, at times, it can also be completely messy, unpredictable and just flat out icky {like mud puddles}."

This is her blog header...


Isn't it gorgeous?

We were lucky enough to win a $100 Target gift card!

What a lovely blessing.
With three little ones, and one income,
we definitely have to watch where our money goes.
So a splurge like this is unexpected and very appreciated!  

Jennifer was also sweet enough to surprise us
with a Cupcakes and Mudpuddles tote bag,
which Jakey wanted to claim as his own.
So cute.

With the kids starting preschool soon,
I think I will use part of it to buy them a new "first day" outfit.
Thank you, Jennifer!
