Life and some Blog Candy!

Here is a new LO for you all to see.  I actually think it may be one of my favorites...I love the pictures the most.   Supplies are listed at the bottom of this post.  :)

My day was very tough yesterday.  Went to a doctor's appointment, immediately got sent to the hospital for an ultrasound (because of problems with previous ultrasound and because my dr couldn't hear the heartbeat yesterday).  When I got to the ultrasound I was freaked out even more because the gal first asked me "Have you had any bleeding or cramping," I told her somee cramping but no bleeding.  She started the ultrasound, moved it away from me and didn't say a word as she was looking over everything.  Then she looked at me and asked again "So you haven't had any bleeding, right?"  I was freaking out.   Finally I made the gal talk to me, I started asking lots of questions.  She assured me that the baby was fine and that the heart rate was fine...so I left thinking everything was ok.  But then got a call from my doctor telling me I have to take it super easy for the next two weeks because I have a hemorrhage.  I am not bleeding, but apparently I am very at risk to bleed.  It actually was kinda confusing.  My doctor is not too great with the communication and my hubby wants me to get a new one.  I tried to explain to the boys how I couldn't be lifting them and I needed to have a lot of help from them this week.  And they have been so good today.  But I am feeling kinda emotional and scared.  :(  So on to some better news:

I promised some blog candy.  :)  I think I will be giving away something for several days in a row.  So keep coming back!  Here is how it will work:

Check out the day's post and then make a post on your blog or on an MB letting people know about my blog giveaway.  Leave me a comment on today's post to be entered into a drawing for today's RAK (include a link to where you posted about my blog candy).  Then come back tomorrow and do it all again.  Instead of the drawing closing at the end of the day, I will leave each RAK open all week and will close all of them out and announce winners on Saturday, August 23rd.  

So leave a comment to today's post for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to The Coconut ScrapShop!  Who, by the way, I just placed a huge order with because they got lots of new goodies in!  So check them out!
