How cute is this construction plate and silverware? Not only is it orange (her favorite favorite color), but it's made in the U.S. and BPA- and PVC-free. Rooney loves to push the peas onto her spoon, shovel them into her mouth, and then do it again! It's made mealtime super fun (and productive!).

Thank you to Uncommon Goods for sending over this plate for Rooney to try! Uncommon Goods is a fun, quirky website that offers great gifts for womengifts for men, and gifts for kids. At the core, they're a really great company that celebrates independent artists, cares about the environment and donates a portion of each order to charity. I'm a big fan.

And because I'm a big girl and already eat all my peas, they graciously sent me this lovely handmade basket. It is so gorgeous and the perfect size. I'm in love!

Of course, Rooney already thinks it's hers...

Not so fast, sister.

AND, because you're awesome and I love you, today I'm giving away a $25 gift certificate to Uncommon Goods to one of you! Just enter using the Rafflecopter form below. Here are a few ideas on how to spend it if you win:

P.S. I just have to show you Rooney's awesome face when she eats chips. Makes me laugh every time!

Our friends Missy and Lola invited us to visit the zoo with them this past Wednesday. I asked Rooney what she wanted to see and she said "Orange." She is seriously obsessed with the color orange. So, we found some orange fish and she got brave enough to feed them, and it was her favorite part of the entire trip. They were so excited for the food that they were splashing us in that last photo!

P.S. Rooney has worn this hat for a solid two years now. We get so many compliments on it. It seems to keep growing with her. My parents bought it for her at the farmers' market right after we found out she was a girl. The gal who made it is still in business - you can click here to visit her Etsy shop and send her a message if you'd like one of your own!
