  1. Hey Shelby, Dimi here hope all is well. Wanted to share a fun new website with you that me and Derek built for soon to be moms and dads that are looking for a fun new way to announce their exciting news to their friends, while allowing them to cast votes (guesses) as to the gender of the baby. I wanted to send it over to you with the hopes that you or someone you know in your network might find it worth sharing with their friends or writing something about it. It works with Facebook so its easy to spread the news with friends through facebook 😉


    Email me if you want more infor about how it works etc.

  3. Hi Shelby. Glad I found your site, look forward to catching your deals. Growing up I had a soft coated wheaten terrier named Wookie, he actually got to go to college with me. My mom actually still has him in florida. He is the most loyal and gentle dog. My husband and I have an english bulldog and shih tzu now.
