It’s the weekend and you know what that means…it’s time for Monster Likes! What’s Monster Likes? I list my favorite selection of posts I found throughout bloggy land over the past week.
I’m gonna be honest – these past few weeks have kicked my blogging butt. I committed to do a job that I thought I’d have time to do, but it’s leaving me doing nothing but sitting in front of the computer writing. Don’t get me wrong I love to write, but damn if I have not been neglecting my blog, reading your blogs, and everything else. Next month, my work load is going to lighten up significantly and I’ll be back to normal. I hope…
Now on to the few things I have had time to read! If one of your posts is listed below and you want the badge, just shoot me an email or leave me a comment and I’ll send you the badge to put on your post!
And now on to the good stuff….
Poppy from Funny or Snot made me laugh out loud with her post Shit Hank Says. Not for nothin’, but I think Hank was right on the money with his observation!
Have you guys seen the site Child’s Own Studio? It’s the coolest site EVER! She takes your child’s drawings and turns them into stuffed animals! You’ve got to check the site out.
Over at SITS, there is an AWESOME giveaway going on right now that you won’t want to miss! Check out the Summer Camp Giveaway, enter and then tell your friends about it too! I think that this summer camp would be awesome for my niece Nikki. She’s always wanted to go to Catalina and maybe this would be her chance. She’s adventurous and would love trying all those outdoor activities like archery and the climbing wall. And she LOVES to wakeboard and I’m sure she’d want to try that in the ocean! I am entering to win a session of summer camp for a child at Catalina Island Camps from The SITS Girls! You should too!
