UBP 2010 Virtual Swag bags from Etsy

What's a party without swag, right? I love you all so much that if I could really afford all these items, I'd send them to you all.  But this is the best I can do.  So pretend with me.

Millicent has been potty trained a really long time but most nights she was still having accidents.  So we put her in a disposable diaper.  That did not help her at all to wake up in the night and learn not to go.  So I started on a hunt for cloth pull ups.  I found these amazing pull ups.  And now Mill doesn't wet the bed as often, because she loves them so much.

I loved them so much I went back and ordered two more pairs.  I want to order more just because I like them.  But I think four is enough for now.  The sweet lady who own QTBunns has been nothing but helpful. Tell her I sent you.

While looking on Etsy around Easter, for some clips, I found these clip-on earrings. I ordered them for Mill's present since she's the only girl without her ears pierced.  They look beautiful.

Millicent wore them all morning to church and didn't take them off till we were on our way home.  The key to getting them not to hurt and pinch the ears is to  put them on really gently.

UUendy has lots of cute designs for earrings and other jewelry.  She's wearing them in this picture.

I've mentioned before how much I like the pads from Beautifully Created, and I still do.  Her prices are right!

I love these advca adocv advic shirts with words. I think this one is my favorite but there are so many I like I'm  not quite sure if it is.  This is from Milburn Mercantile.

I bought this doll wardrobe for Mill's birthday.  (No, she's not the only one who get presents, but one might think that.)  They actually specialize in cowhide creations...Cowhide Crazy Designs...but they make awesome furniture and stuff. I have some bows and arrows on order.  I noticed they don't have anything in their store right now...but they make anything!  I'm sure she'll get it restocked soon. 

For this one, scratch and sniff the screen.  I ordered some soap and perfume from this shop last year for Kori's birthday (see, other people do get gifts).  She STILL has it and it smells divine.  CSbyMarlene.

What about you?  I LOVE Etsy.  What are you favorite shops?  I am especially looking for those crinkly headbands with the big flowers for little Ju.  But I want a good price.  And something to help Mill grow her bangs out and still look cute.  And something for Ashlea for her birthday.  And cute clothes for Mill because the girl has NONE.  So, pretty much anything you like.  And spam me.  If you have an Etsy shop you are proud of, let me know!

I do have something to give you.  For reals.

A competitor (a tough one) in our contest donated this prize.

It's a Gold's gym mini stepper with resistance tubes.  And it looks really fun. It retails for over $40!!!

Wanna win this?  I do. The person today who hula hoops the longest wins.   "HULA HOOP???" you say.

Yes, hula hoop.

"But I don't have a hula hoop, Michelle."

Walmart carries them for a few bucks.  Go get one.  And pick up some extra for the kids because they are going to want to hula hoop with you.

Seriously, it's fun and it's great exercise.  It's easy to do and ANYONE can do it.  Got bad knees, bad arms, three fingers on one foot?  No problem.  You can do this.

So, hula hoop.

The person who hula hoops the longest today wins.  Now don't go over an hour.  If there is a tie, we'll have a tie breaker tomorrow.

ANYONE can participate in this challenge.  You do NOT have to be a Biggest Loser player.

Do not post your totals on here.  Send them to me at jeffnmichelle @

See you later Losers.

Why can't we go over an hour?

Carolyn said... hula hoop, no car. Can I just do the motion?

LifeMoreSimply said...

Hey, what about a pregnant lady! This is discrimination because I really CAN'T hula hoop! ;-) hehe, I'd love to still participate, so if you think of an alternative activity, let me know.

Mom's Place said...

So are there rules? Like you can only hula hoop around the waist???? Or can we just go for it and have fun?

Yara said...

I'm laughing so hard because you show a picture of Mill in her underpants, then later say she has NO clothes.
Funny lady!
Come visit me, we'll go shopping & you can see my new house.

Yara said...

fine, but if my husband yells at me for spending almost $20 on 3 hula hoops... I'm calling you to get yelled at too. Okay? okay then. But I'm going to Target, not Walmart. Oh no wait! Toys R Us cuz I gotta exchange Kevin's monkey outfit anyway. Perfect. I'll hula hoop
