I am psyched to announce that the winner of the 1-800-Flowers bouquet giveaway is commenter #6—Jo of Monkeys Paws, who liked this bouquet. Congrats! That's my favorite, too.

Jo, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address/phone number, and when you would like the flowers delivered. I will remind them about the Fabio signature. :) Please take a photo of Daniel with it and send it to me! For the rest of us, tell your beloved that if he fans 1-800-Flowers on Facebook, he'll get a promo code for 15 percent off the Mother's Day collection.
We had a great weekend. Max played baseball again yesterday on his special team, and he barely cried. This is typical—it just takes him time to adjust. He continues to be obsessed with tee ball. And jelly donuts.
Ok, now guess who this is?
It's Susan Boyle, from Britain's Got Talent. You just knew someone was going to give her a makeover. She looks good, but wasn't there something so lovable about the original her? I opened the newspaper yesterday to see a huge photo of old her, plus an interesting article on how looks do matter (too true), and this photo.
Oh, I do have one more thing to give away, just a little less exciting than flowers, though: Max has outgrown his Hatchbacks, shoes specifically made to go over his braces. Here's what they look like, they are a size 8 and they are in great shape. I'd be glad to mail them if your child could use them.
