A Little Somthin' Somethin' for YOU!!

Before we get to the goodies for you, I have to tell you I've been in party planning mode.  Derrick's first birthday is in almost FOUR weeks...WOW!!  Can you believe that?!  In thinking about his birthday, we've also been thinking about changing his room to a "big boy room."  Not yet, but just thinking about it.

It just so happens, that as we were picking out the giveaway for you, we came across this super cute kids bedding.  I really think we may go GAMECOCK for his "big boy room" because I'm in love with this table and chairs!  If we would have found this site before D was born, Justin definitely would have chosen this crib bedding.  I wonder if the comforter would work for his toddler bed?  Anyone know?  I'd sure LOVE to order it!! 

You know D's been a Gamecock fan for quite a while now...

This must have been after a game...but hey, that's all part of being a Carolina fan! Ha!

Anyway, on to the purpose of this post...something for you!  

Do you like these....

which would be cute in D's room,

or these...

 which I would totally have if we had a girl,

or these...
that would match our bedroom perfectly,

or these...
which I also LOVE for a girl!

Well, it just so happens that you get your choice of a set of adorable picture frames.  I'm sure you can find some that would be cute in some room in your house whether you have kids or not.  They'd also be perfect for a baby shower (or wedding shower) gift.  

You have up to four chances to win.  Here's how.  (And you do not have to have a blog to enter!)

For your first entry, become a public follower of our blog.  (Click on "follow me" at the top left side of the blog.  Again, you do not have to have your own blog to do this.)  After becoming a follower, leave a comment telling us you are a new follower, or that you're already a follower.  

For your second entry, click here and vote for the CHD car to be in the running for Toyota's race car design.  Leave a comment telling us you voted.  (Today (Monday) is the last day, so hurry!  Also, you can only vote once per day per computer, so if you have access to more than one computer...log on and vote!  Being on a race car would be a great way to raise CHD awareness, don't you think!?)  This one is over now! :(
For your third entry, click here and tell us which frames you would choose if you won.  Leave a comment with the name of your choice.

For your fourth entry, mention this giveaway on your blog, facebook, or twitter, or tell a friend about it.  Leave a comment telling us who/how you told.

You have until Tuesday at 9:00 PM EST to enter.  A winner will be chosen by random.org and will be announced here later Tuesday night.  Be sure to leave your email address so I can get in touch with you if you win.  You will have 48 hours to get back in touch with me, or another winner will be chosen.

Thanks for participating...good luck!!

**We are NOT being compensated for this giveaway.  The prize is being given by AllChildrensFurniture.com just for YOU!! :)

  1. Hi Shannon,

    I have been publicly following your story since D was born. I came to follow your story through Ethin Twigg's carepage. Did you get the juice box holder with the t-shirt from the Lions Have Heart Basketball Game? Wow it is hard to believe that D is going to be 1 in four weeks. I wish you all the best.

  6. Ok..since I have done all my entries, just wanted to comment on your post. I know you are super excited about planning D's party. I am once again thinking about planning Zeb's party, since he didn't get to have his, he had to have his "Miracle" Surgery that day. So we are planning a Celebration for him once he can get out and about. I can't wait. I am a party planner, love it, love it, love it! Also Kerr Birthday is in April so I got 2 to plan. I can't wait to hear what you will do since you are so creative. You know the comforter for the bedding might just work for a toddler bed, but if not you could use it for a wall hanging and get material to match to make a new comforter. I know it will be Awesome either way! Thanks again for those adorable pics of our Zbug. Talk to you soon!

  7. I have been following Derrick since he was born. I started off on carepages via Ethin Twigg's carepage. I am so happy that D is doing so well and I can't believe he's almost a year.

    he is absolutely adorable. I follow your blog and LOVE the updates.

  8. Thanks for the opportunity to win a set of adorable frames. I have a granddaughter coming in a few weeks so if I win, her picture will be displayed in them. I love the first set of pink ones (with paisley and stripes).

  13. I like the "Max Two Piece" and the "Heirloom Two Piece". They have a lot of cute stuff. I would say the "Max Two Piece" for a little boys room. :)

    I still cannot believe that D shares his birthday with my heart baby and that they will be celebrating their 1st birthdays in 4 weeks! Looking forward to celebrating these little miracles!

  14. I LOVE the Chibi Zoo picture frame set, they'd look great on the wall going upstairs to the kids' rooms!

  15. I put it up on my Facebook, and will post on the blog also! I can't wait to see if I win. :)

    Now that the work is done, on to the fun stuff. I can't believe that D will be turning ONE so soon! First birthday parties are so much fun, Emma just turned one last Thursday. I made sure to get all of my cake eating pictures and pics of her in her birthday shirt on Thursday with just the family, so that I could relax and enjoy her big party on Saturday. I'm SO glad I did! I'm sure D's big day will be memorable, and I can't wait to see the pictures. Thank goodness he doesn't have to eat a fat free cake, right?!

    Love,
    Cassie Bradley

  16. Hey Shannon!
    Been a follower since before "D" was born! The crib set should work for the toddler bed, assuming of course that you are using a crib mattress. Thanks for the update!

  25. I have been following Derrick's blog for a while now, since finding out our Jacob will be born with HLHS. Your blog has been such an inspiration to me and given me so much hope on the days where I worry about Jacob's future.

    Voted for the CHD car Vote #13606.

    If I were to win the frames I like the baby blue ones or the black and white ones. All of them are adorable but I have all boys!

    I will repost your contest on my facebook page.

    Jacob will be here in one week! I will post pics on our blog when he arrives. Hope your family is doing well. You must be so excited to plan Derrick's first birthday!

    My email is thebakertrio@gmail.com

  26. I may be disqualified for not reading the directions correctly lol. I didn't know there were other frames to choose from.

    Jacob's nursery is a jungle theme. Greens/browns. These would match better!

  38. Hi Shannon! I hope Derrick is doing well. I haven't been blogging lately but I am trying to get back into it.

    I will mention the give away on my blog right now.

    I would love the Sweet Safari Pink frames for Miss, Madi's room.

    Thanks for a chance at this adorable give-away!

  39. I have voted for the car several times. Tried to do it again tonight, but found out that the voting was closed. I like the black and white heirloom frames. I put a post on my Facebook page tonight about the giveaway you are doing. It said to visit your blog and "She is doing a fun giveaway and you will have an opportunity to find out about a beautiful little boy. He was born with a congenital heart defect and his parents are doing an amazing job of spreading awareness as they share his story."

  41. Hi Shannon!
    I am so amazed by your motivation. You are such a reminder that CHD doesn't have to own your life. You can own CHD!
    Thank you for being you and for keeping such a positive outlook on CHD and life. Your spirit gets me through some of those darker moments.
    I hope Derrick is being as cute as ever! I can't believe his birthday is so close! It seems like yesterday that we were all learning about HLHS and what life would bring.
    Congrats to you and your family! Derrick and the whole CHD community is lucky to have you around!
    BIG BIG heart hugs!
    Laura, Ruthie and Josh
