    Thanks for hosting. Have a great weekend.

The second would be my baby shower (not preggers…yet) but I would totally love a Dr. Seuss inspired shower b/c it’s whimsical and colorful…perfect for a baby! I hope I win Amy’s book as the tips would be awesome to have for spring & summer gatherings! Tweeted: https://twitter.com/#!/GillianLuce/status/198589607321944065 Thanks for the giveaway Jen! :)
