I just realized that I get the newletter a day later than you send it out. I tried yesterdays links when I got them and they had expired and thought maybe it was because I was away for the weekend and just got home last night.. of course I wasn't smart enough to just check the blog right then for the actual Sunday post and just got the email today for this one. Ah well... can't get the frebies but I can still enter the draw I hope!! :)
