Bloggers for Babies | Nailed it.

asdfghjkl! it’s hard to find more words right now so instead i just bang my head against the keyboard and hope you’ll all understand what i’m saying.

but i guess that won’t do. what i mean is THANK YOU. thank you to all of you who donated to the very worthy cause of March of Dimes and supported my team this year. saturday morning was our 3.5 mile walk. we all put on some hot pink, gathered our kids in strollers and hit the pavement. the weather was amazing!

my incredible teammates: ashley & arlo, fiona & elle, tracy & abby, my mama, chelsea & lily (and emily!), melissa & zoe & rowan & stella (and tim!), jill, chelsey, emily and sky (and josh!), stephanie & hunter (and Jesse!), carolyn & addie & portia, and not pictured Lindsy.

these ladies  were more than amazing this year. every time i called on them to try and get more donations, they came through. to the last minute they were all using their powers to get more people to give. the end result was a total of $3902 raised for March of Dimes and i’m blown away. all of this money will go towards helping premature babies, educating pregnant mothers, and giving support and resources to families with babies born too soon or with birth defects. a very noble cause indeed.

in the world of blogging and social media it’s all very ME ME ME. i can’t tell you how much i appreciate those of you who gave of yourselves, both in time and money. i’d hug you all if i could:

lena, jacquelyn, clarisse, delia, karen, jenna, maryam, amy s, ashley s, ruthy,katie t, kristi v, irene, kristin t, carolyn, bob and sharon, katherine b, trina, jennifer b, alyssa, sara b, suzanne, gregg, kristi d, rachel d, brittany e, meghan e, rachelle, jamie f, jenn g, sarah g, michelle g, lisa, andrea, addie, aliya, melissa j, toni, tracy k, sarah k, angie, jen m, lena, gina, linsdey, erin, arell, laurie, amy n.

thank you. thank you thank you THANK YOU.

i can only hope even more of you locals will join us next year and that we can bust through our record yet again in 2013.

and without further adieu, here are the winners of the raffle!

the goodknits doily blanket goes to Angie!
the set of changing the universe coasters goes to Lena!

    what a great group for a great cause!  I’d love to join you next year.  Unfortunately right now, walking up the street to my house is an effort at 6months!  (boy am i out of shape!)
