Coming up for air

Ok. I am still in the middle of posting all the crazyawesome shower gifts & giveaways and was hoping to get them all up in a row

but I missed my blog and had to take this little breather.

*I'm going to keep this post at the top through tonight. I just need my blog back for a bit!


Also? I hope you're enjoying the shower and understand that I am doing this like a friend would throw another friend a shower in real life.

It's fun, but the product features and giveaways are definitely
not something that is going to be a regular occurrence once the shower is over. I don't normally do this and it's been a good reminder that this is not my blogging cup of tea. I want to write. I am doing this is all for Beth.

And that's another thing I was thinking about. All the wonderful prizes that were donated are from relationships I've had in the past or from people that know Beth's story and of course had to be involved in blessing her with the Nest Feathering. NOT ONE company asked for my stats or my traffic or my pageviews or how many comments I usually get on giveaways or anything like that. This is all for Beth.

Some things that make me smile lately- New pajamas. My iced chai and sun rays this morning. Good friends. [VERY good friends.] Heart to heart talks with my hubby. And the other night I was getting out of the car and saw Gray's little foot prints in the slushy snow.

  8. I love how you brought all these people together for Beth. It is such a testament to the goodness and kindness of the internet.

  17. I love seeing my boys in pj's. So sweet and cuddly! Ha!

    ReplyDelete
  18. You're so darling. I am so blessed to know you FOR REAL, and I hope we can hang out soon.

    It's funny, I was just talking with Aaron about the night I met you, and I didn't know you were a "blogger" and you didn't know I was a (little) "blogger" and I thought "I could seriously be friends with her!".

    :)

  19. I love that you're doing this for her. I love it so much. You've got the biggest heart of anyone I know.

    ReplyDelete
  20. loves your blog, and your heart for you family and friends!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Love the pic! The monkey pajamas are adorable (can I ask where you got them?) And the two of them all bed head and cuddly are adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  22. As much as I'm enjoying your giveaways (and secretly hoping I win them all) I get what you mean. I see people doing giveaways on their blogs and getting all sorts of comments and possibly new followers, and that makes
    me wonder if I should try to do one to increase my readership. But what you said is important...it's all based on relationship. You are blessing Beth and you're doing it through people you already had relationship with. It's not about popularity or puffing up your vanity, it's friendship and support. Your kids are adorable and I look forward to reading more about you once the shower's over (and I've won all my swag - haha!)

  23. those monkeys pajamas are so cool....glad you shared a piece of everyday life with us midst all the fun! its awesome by the way, just in case you wondered!

    ReplyDelete
  24. You make beautiful babies...

    ReplyDelete
  25. You are such a sweet friend! And I'm glad you don't do this as your blog thing. I like your writing. :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Is there anything better then babies in jammies?

    ReplyDelete
  27. What you are doing is such a neat idea. And very thoughtful as well. I am sure that it is a lot of work. But I can say that I am loving participating and getting so many neat ideas and shopping lists for our new addition!

    ReplyDelete
  28. You are doing such a lovely thing for Beth. What a great friendship you have and how fun to get to have a shower to celebrate this baby! He should be celebrated! :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh, so good to see you. It's true. Giveaways are fun once in awhile, but for most of us, that's not the reason we started our blogs. It's because we have something to say, not something to sell.

    At the same time, what a beautiful thing you are doing for Beth. You are a lovely friend and I feel so blessed to know you.

  32. you are such an amazing friend. I miss your regular stuff, too - as much as the giveaways are fun! ...and even though I never comment, I love reading! so I figured, here I am commenting on all the giveaway posts, I think I can comment on a regular post, too :)

  33. New PJ's are fantastic and so are your kiddos and hubby heart to hearts. Loving the shower gifts, but not the reason I visit on a daily basis. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  34. It's nice to hear your voice in the midst of the excitement. I love that kind of PJs on kiddos, so sweet. But they sure would look silly on adults :)

    ReplyDelete

  42. You do such a great job of letting "your voice" come through even during your product features posts - that's really awesome and shows how genuine you really are.

    If I said "thank you" ten times everyday for the next twenty years - it still wouldn't properly portray my gratitude towards you and all that you have done. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Love the pic of your kiddos. They are cute & their jammies are too! :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Well, I kinda missed you too! Glad to hear from you, and see your darling babies! :)

    Such a wonderful, sweet, amazing thing that you and these companies are doing for Beth. Just WOW.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Those jam-jams are the best!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I totally agree with your mom and Erin. You are the best friend ever. I love the picture of the kids!

    ReplyDelete
  47. It's wonderful what these companies are doing for Beth! They definitely get gold stars (and bookmarked links) in my book!

    BTW, I cannot get over how much Gray is starting to look like his brothers!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love it. I love that the snow is finally starting to melt and that we've been able to walk to get Seth from school the last 2 days. So nice.

    By the way, I think this baby shower for Beth is fantastic. You rock lady :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Love Ivy's t-shirt in this post! I've tagged you over at my blog, I hope you'll play along, it's a pretty big issue.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Ahhh... love jammie days. What a wonderful friend you are, Beth is lucky to have such people in her life :)

    ReplyDelete
  51. You're a wonderful friend and wonderful person, Steph. I love your little list of things you love. And those two cuties are making me smile.

    yay for you, lady. You're all kinds of awesome.

  54. I was thinking that posting all of these giveaways must be really tiring because there are SO many! But it's so nice to be able to shower Beth and the new baby with love. It warms my heart so much.
    And tiny snow foot prints ... I melt faster than they do after I see them. Seriously. These babies just keep growing and growing.
