Bunny Name Reveal and a GIVEAWAY!

Yes, you read that right.
And I cannot wait to share Bunny's name with you!

I had a great opportunity to combine the name reveal with a giveaway when Lisa Leonard Designs approached me, offering a $50 gift certificate to one lucky reader. That's $50! Fifty bones to buy whatever you want from their shop! It's like Supermarket Sweep but without a cart or a time limit or that pesky coffee bean grinder to slow you down!

So to paint the picture of how many things we currently have on hand for this little guy, let me just say that aside from the two items we purchased in Italy, we haven't acquired anything, at least of our own doing.

Hank did buy this onesie:

Oh, this kid will learn to love jam bands like his dad or at least learn to love some songs like his mom. 

And I haven't purchased anything as of yet, so to be able to pick out something personalized as my first Bunny item was pretty neat. And if I do say so myself, I chose rather wisely because I love it!

Behold the tiny squares necklace.

A few things to point out...1. LOVE the packaging and 2. Yes, that's two days of wearing it since I got it two days ago. What can I say, it's my perfect new necklace.

Ok, so are you curious about the name? Well, here's one square revealed.

You knew it would be Hank. Dang, I love that guy.

[edit] Hank is my husband's name and so I ordered a necklace with both names  - one my for current love and one for our newest love to be. We're not 100% on River's middle name yet. Stay tuned.

Also, can I just say that I love lowercase letters for names? Clearly, if you've read enough of my posts, you know I am no stickler for sentence case. I've always signed my name with all lowers and seeing this trend pop up everywhere is kinda validating and exciting - like yeeeeh, I'm trendy now! No one can laugh at me or point out my mistakes because hey man, it's coooool.

Ok, ok, fine.

Bunny's name shall be, in all it's fine pewter glory...

It's River! wait, it's river! (lowercase)

Like, ya know, a river!
Body of water, going with the flow, strong, beautiful, etcetera, etcetera!

Aw, so precious. Dad-to-be's hand holding son-to-be's name square!
Awwww, Ooooooh, Awwww.
