Happy Birthday, Blog

Pink ProntoToday is the 1st anniversary of my very first blog posting. Who could have imagined we would grow so quickly? This project started out as a place to primarily keep the store staff informed about new products in the store, but soon we realized that other people might be interested in getting the inside track on toys and gear, too. So spillingthebeans was born, and it has been a lot of fun. I don’t sleep as much, but I look forward to having this little outlet at the end of the day.

Anyway, I thought it would be fitting to do a giveaway to mark the occasion. To celebrate, anyone who comments on this post before Friday will be entered into a drawing for a free Skip Hop Pronto. Why a Pronto? Of all the items I’ve covered over the past year, this is the one product I use most, and each time I use it, I’m grateful to have it. Thanks for reading, and here’s to another good year.
