Saturday Stuff #9

First of all, I want to show you this:

Yes people, one of the ghost peppers has sprouted! I don’t know how long it’ll take to grow actual peppers, but we are now on our way!

I have two favorite posts of the week:
Funky Mama Bird talks about miscommunicating with her toddler and I swear I’ve had the same conversation with Tater. It’s funny!

Aunt Becky over at Mommy Wants Vodka addresses blogging integrity, or some blogger’s lack thereof. Check it out – it’ll make you think and also realize how much support our readers give to us!

And seriously, go read The Flying Chalupa. She has earned a permanent spot on my weekly favorites list. Her blog and everything she writes is that good…she is AWESOME!! If you don’t believe me, check out my all time favorite Chalupa post – The Blorax – and see if you don’t fall instantly in love!

A big, fat thank you to Jackie over at Lumps On a Blog for bestowing an award upon me! I appreciate it!

And last but not least…it’s time to announce the winner of my citizenpip lunch gear giveaway! The winner, as selected by, is comment #6. Congratulations to Gigi over at kludgy mom!!!
