Ok, so, cute story of how I came to meet Lisa (the hot Mama behind Good Knits).
Y'all have heard me mention my friend Vanessa over at Random Pretties, right? I'm name dropping today. Well Vanessa and I have little girls that just happen to be the exact same age (and are pen pals, but kinda slacking at it). Her and I used to do project 365's (where you take one picture everyday for a year), which I think is how we met. Anyways, so Vanessa and I met through that, and then one day Vanessa sent me the link to a picture of the cutest little boy, who she said reminded her of Charlie. The little boy was chunky and squishy, and allll sorts of cute- very much like my Charlie, she was right- so I left a comment on the photo, and added the photographer as a "contact", so I could semi stalk the cuteness of her kids that she posted on a weekly basis. She added me back, turns out she knits really cute stuff, and now we're internet friends, and I'm sending her a Christmas card?
So thats how that happened.
-It doesn't keep my coffee any warmer, because we pour it from the press too fast.
-My husband always forgets to use it, because hes not a woman, even though he might sound like one on the phone (he raises his voice due to nerves?).
-Really, it serves no purpose other than making me smile. And sometimes thats all I need, ya know? Some bright colors and a good smile.
Wellll, Lisa is one of our wonderful sponsors this month (which means shes aided in the diapering of my children), and shes graciously offered one of our readers the chance to win one of her very carefully made hand knit hats!
Free, you guys. All you have to do is check out her shop and tell her how rad she is. You can do that, right?
