A Toot World Premiere and Extreme Blog Makeover

Okay, I about busted a gut trying to contain my excitement at announcing the winner of the blog makeover. How in the world was I able to wait so long?! I've had the winner's name in my hot little hands since this morning (around 1:00 in the morning or so) and have been choking on my secret ever since. (Don't ask me why I didn't just post it with my pin-up ATCs, I've got no clue other than I was trying to extend the suspense and come on, that's just dumb. :P)

I hate posting more than one post in a day because I don't want ya'll to miss anything but I can't hold it in any longer!!!!! So if you missed this morning's post, please scroll down, thanks!

So without further ado, the winner is...oh crap!

Sorry about that y'all, I looked over and Toot was biting on one of Lebowski's dog toys...flipping fantastic...Yuuuck!

Anyhoo, where was I? Oh right! Check it out, Toot made You Tube! Let me explain a little bit here. For some reason, Toot thinks it is HILARIOUS when I make a "gasp!" sound so that's what this is. Also, I was trying to get her to not look at the camera (which she loves so dearly already) so that's why you get a good shot of Anthony Wiggle in the beginning. Scorsese I'm not! :P

And with that may I present....the first ever (public) video of your favorite Toot and mine...


Is there any other sound in the world so beautiful as a baby laughing? Well, maybe "Let's get you a bigger diamond, Darling!" :P

Also, happy fun mail for me today, woo hoo! The fabulous Christy sent me this fabulous array of goodness!

Um, hello! Stickles, blingy embellishment, Tinkerbell stickers AND a new spatula for my Cricut (which I did not have!)?! Does this girl know me or what?!?! Thank you so much Christy, wowowowowow!

Speaking of Christy, did you know that she just found out she's pregnant with her first child??? Congrats Christy! If you have time, run over to her blog and congratulate her!

Well, that's all for today! Join me next week when you'll hear Toot say, "babababababababababababaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!" Bye y'all!

Huh? No, I don't think I forgot anything...

Oh! *blush* Well, jinkies I never announced my blog makeover winner, did I???

And the winner is:
