Saturday Stuff #5

Let me just say I’m glad this week is over.

Construction on the stairs? Done. Finally!

Tater’s fever? Gone. And so far, the twins are not sick either!

So hopefully this weekend will be full of good times and not crappy stuff. Because I’m done with dealing with crappy stuff. Seriously.

Now, on to the fun stuff…my favorite posts of the week!

My favoritist (I just made that word up!) post…possibly EVER…was The Blorax, written by The Flying Chalupa. If you don’t ever check out any of my recommendations, I understand. But you MUST check this one out!! I tweeted the hell out of this, and she’s probably sick of me talking about it, but I loved it!

That love that we all feel for our children? Full of all these crazy positive and negative emotions that go with it? Over at WTH am I doing? she describes it perfectly with a post titled Love, Hate, Hope, and Fear.

Trying to keep the young ‘uns busy while they’re on summer break? Check out the suggestions at Get.Out.And.Play and her post Summer Boredom Busters.

And these next two are “two fers”, meaning two for ones! Visit these blogs and you get two fantastic bloggers at the same time!

Nichole over at in these small moments hosted Andy from Crazy With a Side of Awesome Sauce. Andy wrote a guest post titled Blissful Moments that made my heart all warm and tingly.

The Empress over at Good Day, Regular People hosted one of my favoritist (there’s that word again!) bloggers out there, Gigi from Kludgy Mom. Gigi wrote a post called Less is More and it is a fantastic reminder about being happy with the small things in life.

A very special thank you and a big hug to Sherri over at Old Tweener for passing along the One Lovely Blog award!! And another big, special thank you and hug to one of my first blogging friends Alicia over at A Beautiful Mess for passing along the Versatile Blogger award. And also a big thanks to Cori at Cori’s Big Mouth for giving me two…count ’em two!…awards! Please check out their blogs because you will be glad you did.

And now for the winner of my Frito Lay giveaway…the winner was randomly selected through I had a hard time getting it to show up correctly here, but if you want to see the evidence, I can email it to you! The winner was #1…Ms. Understood! Congrats Janel! Please email me your full name and address so that I can get you your gift right away!

Here’s a SUPER COOL thing…Chelsey over at the paper mama is giving everybody the opportunity to get to know each other better. She is conducting mommy interviews, and gives readers the chance to ask moms questions that they have. This week, she is interviewing ME! So if you have any questions that you’d like me to answer…it could be about anything…head over to the paper mama and leave the question as a comment below the post. Thanks for the opportunity Chelsey!
Have a great weekend!

And so it goes…

    You were right about The Blorax...hilarious stuff. Thanks for the link!
  2. Funky Mama Bird says:
    I agree that the Blorax was quite possible the best post ever written in the history of the internet. Have a great weekend!
  3. Yup. Blorax = best post ever written. As soon as I read it, I was smitten!!!

    Thanks for the shout out..again!!! have a great weekend!
  4. Amen to this week being over! Glad to hear Tater's feeling better. Have a great weekend!
  5. Aging Mommy says:
    The Flying Chalupa is my favorite blog and I tweet her posts as well, which I don't typically do. If you've not read her post L.A.M.E. then do, that is I think even more brilliant than Blorax. Destined for fame for sure.

    Glad Tater is better and I hope you have a great weekend.
  6. The Flying Chalupa says:
    Thank you SO much for including me on your famous Weekly Favorites! There's just no following up The Blorax so I might as well retire now.
    And I, too, loved Gigi's Less Is More and can't wait to check out the others.
    So glad your household is healthy! Have a great weekend.
  7. Glad our babes aren't sick. Hope your weekend rocks lovely lady.
  8. You are most welcome on the award, and congrats on your plethora of other awards, too! (Ha)

    Love, love, LOVE the Blorax, have read it twice more because it just cracks me up! This was my first visit to the Flying Chalupa, and I'm hangin' around that one.

    Here's to Happy Weekends, not crappy ones!
  9. So glad the girls escaped and I hope you do too.
  10. I still feel like the blorax is the best blog post E.V.E.R!
  11. Laurie Wallin says:
    Yeah. The Blorax post was a great recommendation. I think I just peed my pants I laughed so hard. Needed that today!!!
  12. Congrats on the awards! Well deserved! And, just so you know, I do check out your recommendations. I'm going to go check out this Blorax post everyone is talking about...
  13. Every time I think about your stairs being done I breathe a sigh of relief.
  14. MommaKiss says:
    I want to have a flying chalupa. Like in real life. Is it a real thing? I'm mad at The Google right now so I haven't looked it up. [blorax post ROCKED]

    WAY glad the sickies are gone.
  15. Mama Penguin says:
    Ohh the Blorax was hilarious, that was a great post!
