Time to Dream...

Wow. Was just over at my friend, Vanessa's, blog "I Never Grew Up" & found her BumbleRide giveaway for the Indie Twin stroller. I am in BIG love with this awesome double stroller!!! I was just saying to my husband yesterday that I needed to find a good double stroller that I could use to go jogging this spring & the Indie Twin is exactly - if not more - what I'm looking for! It comes with so many bells and whistles that I'm am singing right along. Looks like a snap to fold up & down & looks super-comfortable for the kids. Also, everything is adjustable, from the footrest, to the canopys, to the backrests, making it fit babies through toddlers really comfortably. I'm really, really hoping to win this sweet baby. That would be a dream come true!!! And you should try, too! Check out this amazing stroller & be wowed at all the incredible features. And be prepared to drool.

Letter from Congressman Matheson Re: CPSIA

A couple months ago I sent out the copy & paste letter to my senators & congressmen & - lo & behold - I got a response back! I thought I'd post them here for everyone to check out. More importantly, I want to post these to ensure that I am expecting these elected officials to stick to their word & truly continue to work this out & not leave all my mom small businesses in the dust. Feel free to click on the images to see the large, full content version. And let's all keep working to amend this law so that the intention remains, but the current implications are avoided.
