Win a $100 Gift Certificate to Land's End!

Hormone Colored Days is offering a fantastic giveaway from Land's End! I'm really excited about this! I won a while back ago an entire swim set from Land's End. Their products are fantastic quality! Contest ends May 4th.

A Couple of Things...

First of all I found a Blog Scavenger Hunt called The Great Blog Hunt. There are great prizes to be won... it takes a while, though... and I've found broken links so... argh... but now I'm determined and a little addicted. All you have to do to join is follow the links and save the pictures to a folder... I'm not going to elaborate because that stupid page finally loaded lol! Just follow the link to learn how to join!

Also, I added a breastfeeding poll to the right of the screen to take! Thanks for your participation! :)
