I recently got my 200th follower!

And, in the spirit of being appreciative I'm doing a giveaway!

We have monkeys on the brain around here so...

You could win one oddly happy, semi agreeable, 16 month old baby monkey who loves playing peek-a-boo and long walks! As pictured below.

Kidding! He's not a huge fan of long walks.

And, for the giveaway you might actually want to enter: two monkey related items for your keeping or regifting pleasure!

1. A Punky Munky t-shirt size 12-18mo from one of my most favoritest stores: Urban Baby Runway. You know, it's the same place I got this shirt:)

2. A set of monkey Crawler Covers from Fategoddess on Etsy. Everyone knows how much I LOVE Crawler Covers.

To enter you MUST:
1. Go to Urban Baby Runway and tell me what other item you like.
2. Leave a comment answering #1.

For Extra Entries:
1. Follow me! (+1)
2. Follow me on Twitter.(+2)
3. Share your favorite Etsy store with me (always looking to support the little people!). (+3)
4. Add me to your Blogroll.(+4)
5. Post this giveaway on your blog.(+5)

For each entry you complete, please leave a comment to this post.

Contest ends June 16th @ midnight, and the winner will be posted on the 17th.

Good Luck!

Disclaimer: Baby is not actually part of the giveaway. He is mine to keep and I'm not sharing:)



Congrats on the followers! Stopping by from SITS to leave some hump day love!

Although I can not actually give the baby away (Mimi would die), I can send around a sign up sheet and we can workout a schedule so that he can visit all interested parties. Only catch... you have to take #1 & #2 as well:)
