Baaaaack!! (Twins and a Giveaway!)

Wow.  It has been over 9 months since I last posted...  Boy have I MISSED blogging and reading others' blogs too.  I've made it a New Year's resolution to blog more.  So you're probably wondering what has happened to me over the last 9 months!?!?  Well - take a look!


My beautiful twins were born!!  Kennedy Lee (left) and Landon Robert (right) were born on December 19th.  Both were 4 lbs and 01 oz.  They spent a few weeks in the NICU but came home shortly after.  They've been home now for a few weeks. Its definitely an adjustment from going from just my husband and I to a household of 4 (plus animals!)  They are the most adorable things I've ever seen.  Here are some more pics! (I just love to show them off!)







Ok - enough pictures.  

So - to help celebrate my twins and my return to blogland I'd like to have a giveaway.
   Since I have TWO babies I'm going to give away TWO $25 gift cards to Target.  I'm also giving away 5 free items from my TPT store to the third place winner.  

Wanna enter?  

(Please comment on this entry separately for each item below)

1 Entry - Follow My Blog and comment to tell me!

1 Entry - Follow my TPT store and leave me a comment telling me which items you'd like to have from my store!

1 Entry - Blog about my giveaway on your blog and comment to tell me!

1 Entry - (I thought this one would be fun)  Leave a comment and give this new Overwhelmed mother some advice on how to juggle kids, school, blogging, a husband, and life!!  :)

So you have FOUR chances to win.  The contest ends next Friday, February 8th at midnight.  I'll announce the winners sometime on that next Saturday.  Remember, each entry needs to have a separate comment.  I'll use the Random Number Generator at the end of the giveaway to pick the winners.  I can't wait to hear all of your new mom advice.  

I'm so glad to be back in blogland and so glad to be starting this new chapter in my life.  Happy Friday Everyone!!!

  2. My advice is to not be afraid to ask for help. Maybe relatives might help out by cooking meals or helping clean the house. I wish my relatives had helped with that!

  4. I agree with Mami2jcn, the best advice is to ask for help when you need it. The support of family and friends will be a big help. Also, don't forget to take some time for yourself to do something relaxing every now and then.

  6. Sleep whenever your babies sleep, don't try to clean up or catch up, relax and nap! :)

  7. Congratulations! My advice is to sleep when the babies sleep, invest in some dry shampoo, and accept any help offered. :)

  8. My advice is to make sure to take time for yourself. Make sure that you don't let everything overwhelm you. Taking a bath, reading when you have a moment. Keeping yourself healthy and happy will keep your babies healthy and happy!

  14. Advice? Well, I hear having a time schedule and just sticking to it helps. My life isn't as busy as yours is, though!

  15. Your babes are beautiful! I have 2 children but had them one at a time so I'm sure you're finding it even harder to juggle! Schedule, schedule, schedule!!

  21. Just remember that family comes first - those babies won't be babies for long. Enjoy every minute - even when you're pulling your hair out! They grow up and move on way too fast!!
