Everything's going swimmingly (and giveaway #5)


Captain Husband came home late Tuesday night (which also happened to be our third wedding anniversary--pretty good timing, eh?) and we've all been adjusting pretty well. It's so nice having our little family all together again.  I think Sammy even remembers CH from his visit home a month ago because Sammy hasn't really shown any signs of being strange around CH, thank goodness.


Yesterday we headed over to the pool to cool off for a bit after finishing up some things on our to-do list for the big move, like re-caulking the master bathroom, re-installing all of the original builder's grade light fixtures, and repairing the split seam in the kitchen floor (my dad came down and helped a lot--I'm going to miss having him an afternoon's drive away when we attempt our first DIY project in El Paso).


No, I don't see any resemblance at all.  What are you talking about?


I think they're getting along just fine, don't you?

And that brings us to this week's final giveaway--something that can definitely come in handy on your next trip to the pool:


The Planet Wise wet bag would be a staple in my house even if I wasn't using cloth diapers on Sammy; in addition to keeping his dirty diapers safely stashed in my diaper bag, I like to use my wet bag for packing toiletries (because it's totally leak-proof I don't have to worry about my moisturizer leaking and ruining all of the clothes in my suitcase) and yesterday I used it to keep my camera and iPhone safe and dry while we were at the pool.  The winner will receive an 8 x 10" wet bag in the groovy guitars print, which I thought had a nice southwestern feel to it:


Okay, so here's the nitty gritty on how to enter:

Still following/stalking. Your trip to the pool looks awesome. Hi CH! Welcome home:)

I think the wet bag would be great for swimsuits. They are such a soggy mess in the car :-P

I follow! I follow!

Maeve's Momma said...

I would put Maeve's sippy cups that are not totally leakproof in the bag! And also juicy snacks that can make a mess.

Do you think my 4 lb chihuahua would fit in that bag? She doesn't like water. If not, I'd probably put my phone in there. :)

We go the pool all of the time since it is right next door. I would use the bag for the camera, C's snacks, and the hats sunglasses as they come off. Love it!

BigP's Heather said...

I would put my car keys, phone, and camera in there. Last week I went swimming and my keys and phone ended up in the pool because I forgot to check my pockets!

Kim said...

I love Sammy giving the scrunchie noes to CH and showing his teeth. The baby does that, too. So adorable!!!

Karin said...

I follow you even with out goodies, cos I love reading about Sammy and I am so glad for your little family you are finally complete again. This will take some pressure off you...it is nice to have a partner to hand the little terrors over every now and then;-) enjoy the time until your move and keep taking these cute pics of the wee man!

I would use it for the same purpose you did yesterday. Little man and I have been frequenting the pool and I never have anything to put my nook and cell phone in so this would be perfect!

Sarbear said...

Looks like they are doing great together and having a blast. :)

Sarbear said...

I'd use the wet bag to protect camera stuff and to carry around all sorts of things for my future kiddos. :)

Turtle lips! So amazingly cute. Welcome home Captain Husband!

I follow your blog!

I have a homemade wet bag, but have a remorse that I don't own MORE wet bags, because I always forget ours. I'd love an extra to switch out when one is dirty. And I put everything in them-wet swim trunks, dirty clothes, leaky sippy cups, and of course diapers. Once in a while it even doubles for a diaper bag. I just pop a clean diaper in with some wipes and a changing pad, and then trade it out for the dirty.

Sarah E. said...

Your son is so cute!

I would put my Kindle and cell phone in there for sure. I can see this being a plus away from the pool or beach.
