brrrr ... and a winner?!?!

It is absolutely freezing here in western ny. I'm not a huge fan of taking the baby out in the cold but the worst part is that his little hands are never warm.  For some reason his body temp stays around 96 degrees and very rarely seems to climb above that.  I try and keep him as warm as possible with fuzzy fleece jammies and outfits that have sweaters and sweatshirts but along with all of that he has to wear socks on his hands.  He gets so frustrated because he likes to put his entire hand in his mouth but when he has socks on he can't get his little hand in his mouth lol.  Either way he's absolutely adorable, just wish he'd stay warmer!

So the giveaway ... we have a lucky winner, she has a pretty awesome blog and some pretty awesome kids.  I'm super happy to say that she won, though I wish everyone could have won something! 

We had 12 entries total, 11 on the blog and Wendy (who was the first to enter so when using I considered her #1 on the list) sent an email that she had facebooked the contest also.

And the winner is ...........

Heidi from A Work in Progress!!!!

Congrats Heidi.  I'm super happy for you and hope that you guys enjoy your prizes.  Please make sure to contact me within the next 48 hours at

New and Improved, plus a give-away!

I've been m.i.a for quite a while now.  My old blog, thediabeticprincess hasn't been working since right before I had the baby.  I'm not sure why it doesn't work but for some reason I'm not able to log in or post.  :-(  So the only solution was to create a brand spanking new blog.  Unfortunately it'll take me a few days to get it up and running like it should and of course get it all pretty-a-fied ;-), but no worries, it'll get there soon!

Of course I'm sure you'd all love to know what has been keeping me so busy ... the easiest way to tell you all about that would be by a picture, so here ya'll go -

Baby Torry! - finally :-D  he made his appearance on Dec, 8, 2010 at 5:42 pm.  The handsome lil man was 7 pounds 7 ounces and 21 1/2 inches long.  I'll def be posting more pics and more about him soon!

But until then ...

So does everyone have it??? 

Ok and up for grabs we have -

To start not posted are containters of glucose tabs of all different flavors that were donated by Relion, we all need glucose tabs don't we? Especially ones that taste good!

Next we have an awesome cookbook called, Diabetes snacks, treats, and east eat for kids.  This was donated by Agate Publishing and is a pretty awesome cookbook.  It's super easy for kids to make (with the help of an adult) and it has some really good recipes in it.  Best part about it?  It has the carbs listed for EVERY recipe.

Next we have a pair of diabetic fuzzy socks/foot warmers.  Elly over at Unique Sewing Boutique  was nice enough to donate a pair of these for me to give a way and a pair for me to try myself!  I must say they're really nice and extremely comfortable on my tootsies!

And last but not least we have two awesome pump packs hand made by Malorie.  Both packs are super cute *boy or girl would like* They're stretchy and soft but sturdy at the same time!

So that's it for now .... enter away and we'll get this pretty awesome prize pack out to someone soon!
