Winner, Panda, Awards OH MY!

Every time Hayden sees my tattoo he calls it a "panda stamp". I have tried to explain to him that it's not a stamp, it's a tattoo. Well it got me thinking.. Wouldn't it be neat to have a stamp that is an exact replica of my tattoo?? UH YEA! So that's exactly what I went and did :) it came out perfectly!!!! I also had to get one made for Happy Mail too! I love how they both turned out :)

I already got black ink all over the wood part (oops). and apparently if you don't clean black ink off immediately it stains the rubber just an fyi. Good thing that's the only color I'll be using with that stamp :)

Hello exact replica!! Now I can share my tattoo with everyone!!!

In other news, we are very desperate for spring here. Joseph called me with this "amazing plan, you will love it". He wanted to pull the BBQ pit out.. even though we still have snow.. So we did and guess what we made????

OH EM GEE only the best steaks I have EVER eaten. I had the sirloin and he had a ribeye. then he made 2 baby steaks for the kids. :)

and on to the winner of Tiffany's amazing scarf!!! The winner gets to pick any color custom scarf she wants!!!

I used the random number generator. I couldn't get my print screen to work, so I had to take a pic of my computer screen.

THE WINNER IS AMY!!!!! YAY!! Congrats to Amy!! Email me :) I only did 24 out of 26 comments because one was a thank you from Tiffany and the other was a double entry from my Momma.
