Petunia Pickle Bottom Bag

The reality of my son Shawn & Nicole having 3 in diapers gave me great cause to research quality diaper bags. And it quickly became apparent that a backpack diaper bag was the way to go, especially with moms & dads 'wearing' their babies in slings. It only makes sense to balance the baby weight in the front with a diaper bag in the back.
Now to find the most functional one... that stands on its own without tipping over... that is super cute and easy to clean. Meanwhile I'm linking several bags to Nicole through this whole process and getting her feedback. We agreed that the Petunia Pickle Bottom Backpack Diaper Bags were the best ~ but also rather expensive. So Nicole put it out there on facebook, asking her friends whether it was worth splurging on a quality diaper bag. They not only said yes, but a few recommended she check out Last Chance. So I told her I would do that for her.

So Randy & I stopped at Last Chance on our way home from church last Sunday and here's where the story gets good.

I head to the purse bins and it's crazy with people grabbing and flinging bags everywhere. I immediately see someone pick up a Pickle Bottom Diaper Bag and put it in their cart. I was stunned. This can't be happening... I miss it by mere seconds? And the last one no less. What's a girl to do? Well, after several minutes I mustered up the courage to approach her and ask if she was actually going to buy it and she kindly replied she wasn't sure, especially if it was over $40.00, but she'd call my cell if she changed her mind. Meanwhile I start walking around the store and see another Pickle Bottom Bag sitting on the floor next to a cute pregnant couple. I asked if they were buying the bag and they said they were. In fact they told me it was only $29.99. That's when I knew the other girl wouldn't be calling me, so I decided to just leave. WELL, as I was about to walk out of the store, the cute pregnant girl runs up to me and tells me they have decided not to buy the bag, and then she hands it to me. I'm stunned. She didn't have to do that, to find me... but she did. I almost hugged her I was so grateful. And my daughter-in-law Nicole was thrilled when I told her the story and that she is now the owner of a Petunia Pickle Bottom Backpack Diaper Bag (the very one pictured above) ~ originally $175.00 ~ for only $29.99!!!
Isn't that the best story!

Hi,
I'd like to inquire about doing a sponsored blog post - about 150-300
words that talks a little bit about cars and automobiles and links back to our site http://www.infinitiom.com/. We are a car dealership and thought
we might be a good fit for your readers/visitors on http://lindathompson.blogspot.com

Here's a list of some blog post titles we've done in the past:
- What To Look For When Buying A New Car
- 2012 Cars That Look Good And Saves You Gas
- Reasons Why Buying New Cars Is Better Than Used

Our budget is around $15 for the post. Is this something you'd be open to?

Also we might be interested in a small banner ad if the price is right.
Our budget is $40/year - something like this:

Let me know if you'd be open to either or both of these.

Also if you have some other sites just send them over and we might be
interested in doing a sponsored post on there as well!

Regards,

Phil
