Thinking Out Loud Thursday

Oh my goodness -- do you know how long I've been waiting for this day to get here?!?  Do you know why?!?  Well, today my fifth nephew will be born (don't you just love planned c-sections)!  Eric and I are so excited to meet him.  Little Liam Jackson Talbot should be making his debut around midday.  September 17 -- what a great day to have a birthday!  I'll flood you with pictures as soon as I can get my camera pointed at him.

Speaking of birthdays, if you saw my post from yesterday you know I'm helping my friend Krysten from Why Girls Are Weird celebrate her 32nd birthday with a fabulous giveaway.  Get entered -- who would love to win some cash?

And speaking of giveaways, I'm actually helping host ANOTHER great giveaway that's happening right now over at The Farmer's Wife.  Win this one and you'll get some more cash plus these other wonderful things.
