We ran a secret contest for “Most Comments.” It ended today, and we have a winner! Stephanie H. has contributed the most comments in the past month, and has won a $50 giftcard from Starbucks. Hurray for Stephanie, and THANK YOU for reading and participating!
I didn’t even think I commented THAT much…compared to how much my big mouth has to say on EVERY subject! LOL!
We’ll continue to have more secret contests for different prizes. You’ll never know what the contest is (it’s a secret!), unless you stay involved. It could be for submitting photos, sharing a story, recipe or funny quote, or maybe…just for commenting. So, if you want to win, keep coming back and sharing with le•top blog!
Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa welcomed a new baby boy last month. I know it’s not “new” news, but this baby’s name sure has caused quite a stir this week. His name is Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa.(Try saying that name three times fast!)
A place for everything and everything in its place...for now!
My friend, Erin T. (everyone will soon realize I have many people in my life named Erin or Aaron!), is 7.5 months pregnant and never thought “nesting” was a “real” thing.

Can you come over and help me sort through them?” Of course I said “YES!” Being in the children’s clothing business, I love going through baby clothes and see what people are putting on their kids (besides our brands!). Let me tell you, there were some really cute clothes in those bags…and I was very happy to see le•top and rabbit moon clothes (and no they were not from me) in the mix! We trudged through and weeded those ten bags down to about three, with the rest for donation. Whew! that was some work. (more…)
One of our readers, Emmy, commented in a previous entry, “….as much as I was excited with my new addition to the family, I was overcome with a touch of sadness that my uninterrupted one-on-one time with my first-born daughter would come to an end.” I’ve heard similar stories from my mommy friends about how the closer they got to the end of their second pregnancy, the more guilt they felt. The thought of having to split their time with another child, or worse yet, spending almost all of their time with a newborn, has taken a toll on their emotions. I remember one of my friends, Kim, bursting into tears as she was telling me this. Back then, I thought she was just hormonal and overreacting. Now, I know EXACTLY how she felt! (more…)
