Critter Update.... and a GIVE-AWAY!

When I started a blog, no one told me that hacking would be an issue.  Especially being hacked by my own family members!

I've had many of you tell me that it's so difficult to make a comment that you've just given up and I simply can't have that!  I love hearing from you so hopefully, Reagan's tutorial will help and the comments will just start rolling in.... hint, hint.  See here if you missed the how-to lesson.

First order of business... critter update.  Let me just put it this way - it's a good thing that Ryan and I were not born in the olden days when people had to live off the land.  We would definitely have starved.  I can't grow a thing and evidently, Ryan's not that great at trapping.  We had not one, but two traps set up last night.  Both were empty this morning.  So Round Two begins tonight.  I know y'all are losing sleep over the anticipation of us catching something, so I promise to keep you updated.

I'm not sure just how much more excitement you people can take but here goes.....

It's time for the First Ever Along Came The Bird Give-Away!!!

This would be the perfect time for you to start singing the chorus of "Let's Get It Started" by the Black Eyed Peas.  Just a thought....

For those of you faithful blog followers, you might remember that last week, I told you about a back-zip pajama I just discovered called Little Keeper Sleepers.  Click here to read that post in case you missed it. I would like to add that we are now going on a little over two weeks and this sleeper is Lily-proof. That's even better than child-proof.

Well, I am happy to announce that the lovely company that makes the Little Keeper Sleeper is giving one away, along with free shipping, to one lucky Along Came The Bird reader!

Can I get a Woot-Woot???

Here's how this is going to work -

To enter the contest, all you have to do is make a comment at the end of this post by 8 AM (Central Time) Tuesday morning, the 17th of May.

Your comment does not have to be eloquent, lengthy, or include a bribe... though that might get you to the top of the list.  Oh, I jest.

Just comment something.

And only comment once.

Then you are automatically entered in the contest.

Once I know how many comments there are, I will choose a number using a handy random number generator at that my husband found, and the comment corresponding to that number is the winner.

I think it goes without saying that the more comments there are, the more fun this will be.  What a let-down it will be for me if I have to choose a number between 1 and 3.

But refrain from commenting multiple times.  I will have my computer goons (otherwise known as Ryley and Reagan) checking to make sure there is only one comment per person.

I will announce the winner in Tuesday's post... of which there could just be yet another super give-away.  If I were you, I would be checking this blog every day this week.  Just sayin.....

That's it!  This contest is easy-peasy.

So let's get started right now.

Make a comment.

Good luck!
