It's a Blog Shower!!!

I LOVE Lara over at the Farmers Wife Tells All!! Her dear friends hijacked her blog to throw her a Blog Shower since they are anxiously awaiting a court date in Ug*nda for their adoption of a sweet little boy. The Shower/Giveaway is to raise the last needed funds for plane tickets, lawyer fees, and in-country living expenses while awaiting adoption finalization. There is a Grand Prize for the giveaway of a brand new Canon Rebel T3i with stock lens and a zoom lens! Head on over to check it out! (yes, I randomly stop by her blog just to drool...hahaha...would LOVE to get my hands on that camera!)

If you grab this button below and blog about it, you can get an extra entry, too!

Autism Speaks Fundraiser

Can you imagine hearing the words "your child has autism"? In a split second, life - as you know it - has changed. For a different family every 15 minutes, tomorrow will never be the same.

My friend Lacy is walking in honor of her son in the Autism Speaks walk in Portland at the end of this month.  Her teams goal to raise for the walk is $1000 and they are at $60.  In an effort to help fundraise, we created a puzzle where she is "selling" the pieces for $5 each.  Upon buying a piece of the puzzle, your name is written on the back of that piece and the puzzle with the names of everyone who helped sponsor this walk will be displayed in the home.

Please consider clicking the donate button below and sponsoring a puzzle piece for $5!  For more information you can go to the 2011 Walk Now for Autism Speaks website also.
