fun stuff people. (update)

hey!! guess what. a few weeks again heidi had this 'pay it forward' thing on her blog. and i was a fortunate one to comment and get a small gift. i got it in the mail yesterday. ohhh it was so fun. i got some notecards, paper, chocolate bar and three suckers...for my three girlies. or at least that's who got them. BUT in order for me to win these gifts, i had to agree to Pay It Forward. (the following was copied and pasted from Heidi's PIF post, and basically i copied and pasted this from ~stephanie~ too)Be one of the first three bloggers to comment on this post. You then agree to share your snail mail address with me so I can send you a small gift. When you receive your gift, blog about this game & link back to my blog in that post. You ALSO AGREE to "pay it forward" and send a small gift to the 3 people who comment on your blog post..... Remember - only comment if you're willing to send out 3 small gifts to other people!!

HOW FUN IS THAT!?!? soooo i want to send you all something. but i can't. so only the first three. k? k. but feel free to comment after those first three. because i love your comments. and hmmm. maybe this...i have a 'secret' number. so i'll give something to the first three. and any comment after that i have a number in my head already. so if i get that many comments. and YOU'RE that commenter...YOU'LL get something too. and don't worry it isn't some outrageous number. because i am not ms. popular so i don't get like a bagillion comments. so the number is less than a bagillion.


i've been waiting something like 22 posts for this. (she let me know ahead of time) my sweet new dear friend is hosting a giveaway for her 100th post!! so you MUST go check her out. here. i met her a few months ago. and i love her! she is pretty much hilarious. but has a dose of serious too. her comments always make me laugh. i make sure to not be drinking or eating and sitting down when reading any comments from her. she has her own little business, well two actually, and is giving away something from them. i love her cloth diapering shirts. and well a lot of the others. so i really want to win. and if i don't i may have to break down and use the 20% off 'code' she gave in her post. but i think she thinks i'm pretty cool...so maybe i'll win. :0) and i'm like dedicating an entire paragraph to her on my blog. that's worth something. lol. totally not part of the contest. but it's worth the shot to try. and hey if you're hosting a giveaway make sure to tell me to post about it in advance. and i'll dedicate a super nice post about you too. :0) lol....truly i love all of you guys. ~*michelle*~ just gets her moment of fame from me today. woo hoo. cool right?! so go enter people.

and while you're at it don't forget to Check out my giveaway! :0) i think i said i'd end it soon. so go enter both. k? okay.

so in efforts to be wise i've decided to take some pictures of my kiddos. instead of going to wherever to take them. so i did dustin and amelya yesterday. i need to do caitlyn and breigh, maybe after naps. or tomorrow. i think i need some sunlight. so here are my fav. of them...

i just can not believe how big they are getting!!?!? i have tons more on facebook. are you my friend on fb? no?? why not? lol. seriously though...if you have fb and wanna be my friend, i'd love to be yours. just search my email. amoschel@msn.com okay enough of that.

so i suppose. i have one more thing to say. okay yesterday i mentioned how we have decided to get the new tractor. shaun asked the guy TWICE if we need a down payment. because if that is the case, we aren't doing it. (a down payment on a tractor is pretty much like a down payment on a house! lol) we wanted it set up like the last time. one yearly payment in december. the guy told shaun BOTH times...no payment needed at delivery. well this guy should become a comedian. he called shaun today and said we need a payment. shaun told him nope can't do it. then the guy wanted him to set up a payment plan. shaun said no. i told you in december. the guy said...i'll see what i can do.

dork. seriously??! i'm so irritated because of how he is running this whole show. so we'll see what happens. oh yeah...shaun also said if he can't work anything out...we're bringing our other tractor back and not getting anything. which is fine. we don't care either way. so it'll be interesting to see what mr. beau works out. lol. either way is good for us. i'm just so thankful for the peace about it. i'll be sure to keep you updated. because i'm sure you're all losing sleep over this. he he he...

so update: well first shaun calls and says...it's ours..but the payment will go up because of pushing it back. i say. nope. shaun agrees. shaun calls me back a bit later. telling me 'he' bought the tractor again. apparently mr. beau man (that's what i call him) said the payment will stay the same and in december. i dunno. i don't know how i feel about it all yet. i'm irritated yet. and still trying to figure out what god has for all of this. all i know is that i am so not impressed with how this all 'went down'. and i have a feeling it 'ain't over yet'. so that's that. back to your regular scheduled programming.

so. that's that. remember to leave me a comment. because i want to give you something. and of course i still have anon. comments open. so even if you don't have a blog, but promise to play along...i'll send you something. and i have that special number in my head too...so come on and play along. and don't forget to enter michelle's giveaway.

peace out.

9 loving words from you.:

Oh my goodness. How big your little ones are getting, Amanda. Is it weird that I got a bit sentimental over this post?

Although they are getting bigger, they are certainly also getting so much more lovely.


PS: Sad that I missed your Pay It Forward. Is there some sort of door prize for comment #6? :)

Rachel said...
