GGGiveaway: Olliegraphic Plate Set

**Updated with winner, below!**
IMG_3961Link
A few weeks back the lovely Meg from Olliegraphic sent Fable a personalized plate inspired by her new 'do. (See above.) Fable (and I) loved it so much I asked if she'd be willing to give away one of her plate sets here on GGC and she was delighted to. (Thanks, Meg!) So today, care of Meg at Olliegraphic, I'm giving away a personalized plate + dish set for a child in your life to enjoy. You can check out more of Meg's awesome stuff like these pillows (adorbs), growth charts, art prints and more, here. Everything is customizable to look like your child. Very cool.
To win a plate + bowl set? Tell me good news. Something happy. (My good news = I feel good! Sickness has left the building! Am almost fully functioning again! Knock on wood!) I'll choose a winner via random.org on Monday and post it here. (Please don't forget to include your contact information so I can track you down!)


Thanks to Meg/Olliegraphic for the giveaway and everyone for participating! Much love.

GGC

In December I was diagnosed with pseudotumor cerebri and was starting to lose my vision. I've been trying to lose weight which could treat the problem and I went in for a check up this week. They can't see anything wrong anymore and I haven't had any vision problems since January. Few more good check ups before they will say I'm "cured" but man is that encouraging news. Might get to see my girl grow up after all.

Good news: My sweet little girl is almost over her evil respiratory infection and high fevers that have made her (and all of us who are sleep deprived) quite miserable for the past week. (And her twin brother didn't catch it -- woo hoo!)

Adorbs indeed!! Good news? After a very long, cold, snowy winter, today we saw a flock of robins up on the hilly part of our yard where the snow had melted off. Yay,double yay, triple yay! I think we're out of the woods on this winter thing. Only 6 more weeks until I can plant the first hardy things in the garden!!

I worked out at the gym every damn day this week! Now I'm balancing out with pizza and wine, lol. My family is happy, healthy, and loving. My life is truly blessed and there's nothing happier than that.

So glad to hear you're feeling better!

Rebecca | 11:00 AM

We moved into our new house in winter, and it has been a struggle to fall in love with it. Now it seems the spring is here and there's so much potential...the windows can be opened, the grass will turn green, and we can tackle some of those home projects that made us excited about the place last October. Not really news, but it's good.

Adrienne | 11:11 AM

My 5 month old, Sterling, just rolled over from his back to tummy yesterday! (He did tummy to back a few weeks ago, so this is the next big milestone!) Now, according to the docs, I can finally let him sleep on his tummy without worry!

Jen | 12:41 PM

The good news: I went out running for the first time since having Linnea 9 months ago. Wasn't sure how that was going to go; my body felt different and my body moved differently. I was slow and became winded very quickly. But being outside in the sunshine made me feel strong.
