T-shirt and cookbook giveaway!

Win a T-shirt and cookbook, simply by choosing your favorite out of the below names!!! I will draw a winner on June 14, 2009, which will be the Dad's 20th birthday! You get one entry for a girl's name choice and one entry for a boy's name choice. The choices were put up on a poll by the soon to be Mom (my beautiful daughter-in-law!!!)

A. Aubrey
B. Alyssa
C. Amberlin
D. Analeigh
E. McKinley
F. McKayla

A. Gavin
B. Daylon
C. Dakota
D. Brawley
E. Brody
F. Braylon

I chose McKinley and Brody, although I would prefer Breck for a girl, LOL, unless it is twins, then my choice would be McKinley and McKayla for girls and I would have to think for twin boys names. My dil's grandmother is a twin, so maybe.... Give me a great UNIQUE name and I will give you another entry. It has to be something unique and different!

I am very excited about becoming a Granny! I loved my Grannies dearly and they were both amazing women and my mom is the best Granny in the world (as I am sure all of her grandchildren would attest to, although she is called JoJo, thanks to her oldest grandson). I am very honored to be joining the ELITE women called Granny (grandma, maw maw, nana, etc...)! You all know I am a part of the weight loss group over at WAHM Addicts, (which is a sister site of and I intend to further my goals so I can be in great shape to help take care of my first little grandbaby. All of you who know me, know how excited I am about this new addition to our family. Due on Christmas Day, so BAM, there is my Mother's Day present and my Christmas present all wrapped into one. WOO HOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

SOON TO BE PARENTS: Brock and Dondra

Vickie said...

I like the names Gavin and Alyssa. How about Kimber or Rhiannon for a girl? I love being a MeMa and I'm sure you will too.

Becky W said...

Who doesn't love a new baby? Especially a "first" exciting...

From the list given I would choose: McKinley for a girl and Brody for a boy.

But if I could choose a name not on the list I would choose "Corliss" for a girl, and Brockdon for a boy (Brock and Donda together...?...)

Jo said...

I am Sam. Sam I am. said...

Congrats!! My favorites are Amberlin and Daylon. I still have a looonnngggg ways to go to being a grandmother but if it's anything like being an auntie, it's great!

Snowberry Creek said...

Congratulations, Granny!!! How happy for you. A precious little bundle to spoil! :)

I like the names Analeigh & Braylon. I like the name Blakely or McKinleigh for a girl...boys names are harder - Braxton is cute.

Know you can't wait to be a Granny, Nanny, Nana, MeMe, MeMa, Grammy or whatever. It won't matter what your called because it will fill your heart with love to hear any of them. :)

Carebear said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Wonderful, exciting news! So happy for you all. Cute, different name choices. It's hard to choose, but my fave girl option is Analeigh (we have a Ryleigh, so I'm a fan of the eigh) and Gavin. I also like Brody (we had Brady and Braedan on our boy list, so it seems we have similar tastes to your son and DIL).

DiPaola Momma said...

WOW sweetie CONGRATS!! I'm sooooo excited for ya. Though we both know you are far far far too young and cool to be a granny! I love Analeigh. If I weren't DONE at four (wheew) I'd steal that one for SURE! I've always loved Gavin. And hey my BFF's hubby is the drummer and a very good pal of the singer Gavin DeGraw. If we picked that one maybe we could get him to do a trubute to your little one! Yeah it's a bribe but I want to win AND I heart that name. BIG HUGS!

Liz said...

What a lovely couple. I like Alyssa and Braylon

I am so happy for you, being a grandparent is so special, and you will be a great one!!! Even though I have 8 already..I am excited about our next one is due December 2nd. My favorite names are Analeigh and Dakota.

kimber p said...

I'm SOOOOO happy for you!!!! I can't wait to get news that I'll be a gma too!

here's my picks..

McKinley for the girl
( I don't want to hurt anyone' feelings, but when I saw McKayla, I immediately thought McDonalds. Kids would be brutal..)

and for the boy, I love Dakota, I know its more common now, but it's so strong..

Breslin would be a great boys name...

My pick of names would be Alyssa for a girl and I like Brock Jr for a boy. : ) Why not.... after all he will probably be a chip off the old block! : )

Either way.... I wish for a happy healthy Grand baby for you and your family! : ) Good luck and keep me posted!
