Good morning, y’all!

Thank you to all those who entered our wonderful surprise giveaway last Thursday for Andrea’s innovative children’s clothing product, the Beleoki Design!

I’m pleased to announce the winner has been chosen by none other than the Bubbers king himself and this is how it happened…..

PICT0001 edited

This time around, I pulled out his trusty numbers puzzle.

And since we had 14 entries for the contest, I took out numbers 15-20.

Then I put it on the floor and told the Bubbers king, “The first number you pull out will be the winner of Andrea’s Beleoki Design. Okay?”

“Eh!” he replied and immediately toddled over to the puzzle like the big little boy he’s becoming.

Then he sat down and got to work…..

PICT0004 edited

Oh, oh! He’s picking up a number!!

PICT0005 edited

Wait–he had a number–I swear he did! But where did it go??

You know what, I think he threw it behind his back between pictures…..

PICT0006 edited

Oh, yep! I peered behind him and there it is!

Let’s get a closer look…..

PICT0007 edited

It’s a 6! Congratulations, #6!

PICT0011 edited

Oh wait, Bubbers wants to keep playing…..

PICT0021 edited

“But Mom!” he asked, “What about #11?”

“Oh, I’m sorry, son,” I answered sadly, “We can only have one winner. But I’m glad you want more people to win.”

PICT0023 edited

That temporarily appeased him, so he stood up and came towards me.

And I blinded him with my flash.

“That’s not cool,” he said as he walked off, swinging his left arm Wooga style.

PICT0042 edited

Then he stood on top of the puzzle.

PICT0045 edited

Then he came back.

PICT0049 edited

And totally made my day with one of his smiles!

“Aw, I love you, sweet Bubbers!” I said and then I squeezed him tight and gave his cute chubby Wooga cheeks a kiss.


Congratulations, Melissa Ducker!

Holy smokes! I’ll bet y’all were wondering if I was ever going to announce a winner from last week’s surprise giveaway. At least, that’s what Charming has been wondering.

“When are you going to announce the winner?” he asks every day when he comes home from work and then waits for my reply.

Slowly, I turn around to meet his eyes as I stand in a pile of boxes, with Bubbers wrapped around both ankles and no dinner cooking and then the light registers in his eyes.

“Never mind, forget I asked,” he chuckles as he kisses my cheek and goes into the kitchen to cook his own dinner.

But I’m happy to report Charming’s question is being answered today (and his dinner is being cooked in the crockpot, too!!).

With the wonderful help of my handsome, freshly bathed assistant, the Bubbers king:

And the use of his oh-so-trusty-and-beloved-toy, the Oreo shapes:


We’re going to choose a winner for Kara’s fantastic Tupperware!

So here’s the nitty gritty of how it’s going to work…..

  • Each contestant will be assigned a shape
  • Those shapes will be put into the Oreo shapes container
  • Bubbers will be given the container and the first shape he pulls out is the winner! (Hooray!)

Does that sound fair and random enough?

Okay–here are the shapes assigned to each contestant:



Crescent moon


Wandering Nana-Linda

And now we’re ready to hand the Oreo shapes container to Bubbers and see what happens!!

PICT0041 cropped

Aw, look at that cute chubby arm reaching in

PICT0038 edited & cropped

Hi, sweet Wooga man!

PICT0014 cropped

Oh, oh!

PICT0015 cropped

He’s got one!!

PICT0016 cropped

He looks pretty serious about it, too.

PICT0019 edited & cropped

Aw, you want to show it to the window?

PICT0020 edited & cropped

And put it behind your ear?

Holy smokes, what a cutie!!

So eventually, I was able to get the shape from him and see that it was:


Congratulations, Heather!

You requested a gift certificate towards the ‘One Touch® Reminder Canister Set’!

I will get you in contact with Kara to finalize your choice and work out the details.

Thank you again to everyone who entered and thank you to Kara for sponsoring such a fun giveaway!

(Sorry, Love, next time we’ll see if I can rig it so Bubbers can get what you wanted for him.)
