Listen to Lena . . .

I recently (using the "Next Blog" button) stumbled upon a blog entitled "Listen to Lena" http://www.listentolena.com/ Lena is a stay at home mom who's love for shopping prompted her to start looking for deals! Now, she strives to find the best quality for the best price and she shares the deals she finds on her blog every day! And she also manages to get donations for business so that she can have contests for her readers!

The first thing that caught my attention about this blog was a contest to win a Pudgie. What is a Pudgie you ask? Well, that was my question too! Simply put, Pudgies are big, cubby, round, hilariously adorable stuffed animals! You have to see them for yourself to understand! http://www.thepudgies.com/index.html

Once I looked at the Pudgies website, and saw these creatures, I knew that I had to enter this contest. I knew I wouldn't win, I never win stuff like that, but I had decided that Liam NEEDED a Pudgie, so, I would enter, and when I didn't win, I would start saving my pennies to order one for him for Christmas! So, needless to say, when Lena posted the winner a few days later, I was shocked to see that I had won!!!! I was getting a Pudgie frog!!!

Well, Pudgie the frog arrived today! And well, I know already said it, but you need to see these things to see for yourself how frigging cute they are! http://www.thepudgies.com/index.html And they are even cuter in person! Liam was instantly taken with his new friend! They played together for a good long time this afternoon. Liam quite enjoyed showing Pudgie his toys!

Thank you Lena and Pudgies for this awesome contest! And I recommend that you all check out Lena's blog!!
