We are still waiting for our tax return and I am particularly excited about getting it. Why? Because the other day out of the blue my husband says, “I was thinking we could use some of the tax return money to buy you a DSLR camera.” Sometimes that man makes me fall in love with him all over again. So friggin’ sweet and thoughtful.
Of course, I’ve been spending lots of time looking at cameras online since he said that and I was looking to buy the cheapest Canon or Nikon that I could find, then Unknown Papi surprises me again by saying, “You don’t have to get the cheapest one.” Seriously?! Did I mention that I love him.
I don’t want it to sound like I love him because he is giving me stuff. I love him because I can be so stingy with myself. I will just settle for less or do without, but he wants more for me and it reminds me that I shouldn’t be so darned stingy with myself.
Unknown Papi also suggested that I pitch myself to Canon. Perhaps, they would want to sponsor Sundays In My City. I looked at him like he was crazy, but then I thought why not? I wrote Canon an email, which detailed why I thought having them sponsor SIMC would be mutually beneficial. I got no response. I was still proud of myself for approaching them and I was happy to have such a supportive husband.
As I’m sure you’ve noticed, there are a ton of opportunities to win giveaways on blogs. Although I frequent many blogs that offer giveaways (I even host some on occasion), I only enter ones for things I am truly interested in; otherwise it’s just more stuff and I have more stuff than I can handle.
Recently, I entered a giveaway hosted on MamiofMultiples.com and was stoked to win this…
I made out like a bandit and was even given a bag to carry all my loot. The reason I was interested in trying out the Johnson’s natural line is that it has…
- No Parabens
- No Dyes
- No Animal Byproducts
- No Silicones
- No Lanolin
- No Paraffin
- No Petrolatum
- No Phthalates
- No Essential Oils
Do you know how hard it is to find baby products without this stuff? Anyway, I’m stoked to be a winner.
