The Life of Bon: A baby named Bonnie and... a GIVEAWAY? Does it get any better?!?!

A baby named Bonnie and... a GIVEAWAY? Does it get any better?!?!

Sometimes I talk on this blog about my adventures with Crazy A.  Like when she flirted with Hubs in church or hooked me up with a free dresser.

Crazy A is one of my best friends ever.  I can't exactly say she is my best  best best friend because I have been blessed with so many awesome friends throughout my life.  Let's just say I've got a lot of best friends.  Some people had a alot of boyfriends growing up.  I had a lot of girlfriends.  The good thing is that girlfriends stay, even after you're married.  Boyfriends don't.  Er... at least they're not supposed to.

ANYWAY... this blog post, specifically, is dedicated to this girl:  Crazy Amy.



We were trying to still boxes of cookies from a party...


We were really into the peace sign for awhile.
 
Me and Crazy A over the years.  We met in 2006...
It's been love ever since.
(Also, please notice how annoyed I look in the above picture.)


Crazy A went and pulled a fast one on me in December when she told me she was preggers.  And by told me she was preggers I mean I was looking at her calendar in the kitchen and noticed every Wednesday of the week she had written "five weeks" "six weeks" "seven weeks", etc. 

"Amy, you weirdo, what are you counting off the weeks on your calendar for?" I asked, oh so naive and innocent.

That's when Amy did a wicked fast dive for the calendar "Oh you're not suppos---" she started.  But by then it was too late.  I had cracked the code.  Amy's eggo was preggo.




Last week Amy and her husband came over to tell me and Greg the gender of the baby.....

Drumrolll............

It's a GIRL!

Then.....

Amy and Husband announced the name they had picked out for the baby.....

BONNIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am not joking you, people.  Come on, would I joke with that many exclamation marks?

Tears sprang to my eyes when I heard the news.  I could barely contain myself.  I was so happy and excited and totally elated that I offered up a lifetime of free babysitting right there on the spot!

You better believe it, a little baby Bonnie is going to be entering this world come July!  And then Bonnie will no longer be a name only used by grandmas!  HURRAH!

To celebrate little Bonnie's arrival into the world, I decided to give away a bunch of Amy's jewelry.  Because, HELLO, what is a cooler way to celebrate your namesake than free jewelry from her mother?

I am giving away two sets of earrings.  The first:


Sparrows.  Perfect for spring and goes with any outfit.


The second pair:  Owls.  Because everybody seems to really be loving them some owls lately.

Alright chicas, (and chicos.  This blog does NOT discriminate on basis of gender.  All are welcome!) here's the dealio:

One entry: Follow Life of Bon on GFC
One entry: Follow thelifeofbon on twitter
One entry:  Visit Amy's shop and tell me which piece of jewelry you like best.
Other entries:  Tell the world that my BFF is naming her baby after me!!!!  Um.... I mean... tell them about this drawing on Facebook.  Or twitter.  Or your blog. Whatevs.  One entry for each.

Leave a blog comment for each of these things that you did so that I make sure to get your name in the drawing the appropriate amount of time.

You could have a grand total of... alot... of entries?  (Six I think?  I got confused...)

Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favor!

I'm sorry... I just had to...
