guess the date giveaway

My days are now filled with waiting...
and since I have tons to do, but don't really want to do them, I have been a slacker. Although, I got a spurt of energy all last week and raked our lawn, filling 12 large bags with leaves, only to find that a nice breeze came through on Sunday and dropped the leaves from out of our 5 maple trees and they are NOT little. Brinley has LOVED having leaves to play in. I was also able to do some deep cleaning in the bathroom and kitchen. my front room needs it everyday, but the beds got made daily and the clothes even got folded. Now putting them away, that is a different story. What do I hate more than folding clothes? Matching socks. I did quite a bit of that too. Matt is happy.
So this week, I have been doing all I can to get this little pumpkin to want to make her enterance into the world. Brinley and I walked through Costco yesterday for 2 hours, Sunday we went with Julie and Cody to Fitch Arboretum and walk around, and jumped some too. Today, I think I will get some of those leaves off the ground, or make piles for Brinley to play in.
now onto the next thing...
Now that I am getting down to the next few weeks (hopefully days), I am going to do a giveaway. You pick the date and am/pm and if you win, you will recieve a $20 giftcard to Target, my favorite place.
So far, here is what we have:
* FYI: all of the birthday's are people I am related to*
28 Sheree Martineau (AM)
29 Lori Lowe (AM)
30 Lindsey Gardener (AM)
31 Emily Lyman (AM) Pamala Phelps (PM)

6 Raquel Ruggles (AM) Becky Wilson (PM) happy birthday Neal and Rocia!

I am not going to go past the 7th because I should be induced by then. I will change the color of the name as the date passes and no baby is here.

november 1st pm

Megan Erickson said...

hoping she comes before then, but I will go for the 3rd in the AM!!!

Anonymous said...

I choose the fifth in the pm because that is Ashleigh's birthday and that would be cool. Not that I want you to have to go that long, but hey, that is my guess.

Megan said...

I think you will be induced on the 7th, but won't have her until AM on the 8th.

Love you!

I am not sure why I didn't sign up to bring you dinner!!! Sign me up baby!! Just let me know what day is best for you!!I betcha she has her birthday on the....um...Nov 2nd. By the way, that picture of you jumping is HALARIOUS!!!! I think if I'd tried that while I was 9 months along, I would've peed my pants!!

Megan said...

Oh, the 8th would be good also cause that is Quinn's birthday. Thanks for the comment. We are going to be fine. You just have a very healthy baby and that is what you can do for us. Love you...

Sonnet and Cameron said...

I would like to predict the 3rd, (pm).

Although for your sake, I hope it is sooner than that. I can't wait to see what she looks like!

LINDSEY said...

Arah I will call you this evening...the 29th, and find out when would be a good time to stop by on the 30th, with your frozen meal. Love, Lindsey

Jandre said...

argh, the one I wanted to guess is gone. I'll say the 1st in the AM. Man, your guess the day went better than mine. No one signed up!

Raquel Ruggles said...

I'll guess the 6th (that is Neal and Rocia's birthday) in the AM. I love all of your pictures. The one at the top of your blog of your belly and Brinley is adorable and I love the jumping picture.

Kami said...

Eh, somebody already has my date. I say the 31st PM. I'm hoping for after the fourth so I can be there :) But I'm sure you want her here ASAP.

November 2 pm.

Ally said...

Can I have PM on the 4th? It is election day and that will send anyone into labor!!

Shevaun said...

I will choose nov. 1st. can 2 people choose the same date? I so remember trying to induce labor. I shoveled snow on our entire block one, wait actually 2 days. Good luck!

arah said...

if there are two names on a date (am and pm), then you have to pick another date.
your choices are:
Nov 5th AM
Nov 6th PM
Nov 7th AM

Andrea said...

Since I am not on the ball- I will choose the first spot open! Looks like the 6th PM. Good luck with the birth!! Exciting times!

Well I am really slow to check blogs so I will take the very last slot. Nov 7 am. I love the pic of you and Brinley. I hope you are doing good. It looks like you have a great line up for dinner, but if you need another let me know. I would be glad to help.
