Ooh, I’m really looking forward to this weekend! My sister-in-law arrives tonight, and we’ll get to spend some time catching up with her. Then on Sunday we’ll fly out to visit family in the northeast.

Kids Table and Chairs Giveaway
And for the mamas out there, I’m linking up with 9 other bloggers to host a giveaway for a kids table and chairs from Baby Gifts and Baskets. They are giving away a personalized white round kids table and two chairs to help encourage winter indoor activities for kids.
We love our kids table and use it many times a day- for snacks, coloring, art projects and more. L loves having her own special place to sit that fits her, and it’s perfect when we host friends with kids her age for dinner.
This table is valued at $120, and the contest runs through March 3, 2013. Use the rafflecopter below to enter:
