Introducing...Featured Follower!

My business-minded husband, J, thinks that I should hold a big party and giveaway for reaching 250 followers. I think that is a fun idea...and hope to do it if i ever get my act together....BUT I think it is important to note that I'm not on the hunt for people to follow me just to be a number!

So, I decided to honor all 244 of you, one at a time (which could take years but you get the picture), by featuring one of you each week as a "Featured Follower". You can grab this button and use it on your site or email me for a direct code that would link back to the post I wrote about you. Fun stuff (i hope)!



Because I'm a rules-oriented person who likes to play fair, I didn't know how to go about picking my first featured follower. I decided to limit the people who could be featured to those of you who 1) follow publicly and 2) have a public blog (because you want people to come visit you, too!). That leaves 209 who follow publicly.

...and, since you know how much I love my Random.com Integer finder, I typed in that number and it spit out lucky number 100 (and I said you weren't a number...!)...Sweet Cuddle Cakes!



Sweet Cuddle Cakes is a vibrant blog full of awesome baby and nursery ideas. With 302 (scratch that--i just joined!) 303 followers she is waaaaay cooler than me (because, of course, coolness is determined by blog followers! and, yes, i jest)

I think I spent an hour on her blog just drooling staring at everything she posts about. Sweet Cuddle Cakes hails from Northern Virginia and has her own very creative Etsy Store named, what else...SweetCuddleCakes!

Look at this adorable "Berry Sweet" onesie bouquet she is selling!



and my sweet tooth is totally craving this ADORABLE cotton-candy "flower" bouquet:



Maybe we'll convince her to sponsor a giveaway on Monkeys on the Bed! :) hint hint...

Speaking of giveaways, her blog is sponsored by Henry Wetson Kids which is currently hosting one of their giveaways (bonus find!). Make sure you head on over to her blog and check that giveaway out!

***I hope you liked this first Featured Follower post. Let me know in the comments with a yay or a nay...I read them all and really take them to heart so don't be shy!***

Such a joy to find you! i just began this journey in blog land, but continue to be amazed. I found your blog via CSAHM and fell in love with the title. Monkeys on the bed is one of my favorite books.
