blog hop potluck with a prize



Blog Hop?


Yes, I know it is a bit difficult to recognize potluck when it seems to have a purpose…but never fearrandomness remains.

And now it is time for Holly to add the word potluck to a musical number to amuse herself

My sincere apologies to the Black Eyed Peas for this…

I love this song and it just seems to fit the new and improved potluck.

Today is going to be a potluck!

I gotta feeling that today's gonna be a potluck
That today's gonna be a potluck
That today's gonna be a
pot potluck
Today's the potluck
Let's live it up
Here we come
Here we go
We gotta rock
Easy come
Easy go
Now we on top
Feel the shot
Body rock
Rock it don't stop
Round and round
Up and down
Around the clock
Monday, Monday,
Monday, Monday,
Monday, Monday,
Monday, yes Monday
Get get get get get
With us you know what we say
Potluck every m-m-m-Monday
Potluck Monday
I gotta feeling that today’s gonna be a potluck
That today’s gonna be a potluck
That today’s gonna be a pot potluck

Shhhh…don’t tell blog-Stedman, but 6 of you arrived this week after Googling him.

Hey, why are you Googling him?

Two visitors arrived here after a search of “horses rip a man apart”.   Hmmmm….

And then there are YOU.   You know who you are.   You stop by all the time after searching for “June Cleaver Nude”.

People!   Move along…nothing for you to see here.

And now for a little story…

Ryan mentioned at breakfast this morning that he was playing with one of those LeapFrog alphabet “computers” where you push a letter and it says the letter/sound and that if you pushed the B right before the T it said the word “butt” and of course, if you pushed the P it said “pee”.

Since we no longer have one I asked where he was playing it.

At grandma and grandpa’s house last weekend when you were gone.

I am sure your grandma really didn’t want to hear THAT.

No she didn’t.

Did she send you to your room because you weren’t behaving?

No, grandpa just threw the LeapFrog in the trash.

Oh my.   Glad I was out of town for that one.

And now for an act of Shameless Self Promotion by Holly…

I was really, really, really excited about being one of three mom bloggers featured on Woman’s Day this week.

One thing I learned is that I might overuse the phrases Holy crap and Oh my gosh which seems fine here at the Nirvana, but sounds a little out of place over there where actual writers write actual facts.

What is Up with Holly’s Coccyx?

Not much!

And How Firm is Holly’s Butt due to Skecher’s Shape Ups?

Just a little!

In response to The Price of a Popsicle…

“In some alternate universe, you're applauding at Reid popping Ryan in the mouth and saying ˜what color popsicle do you want? ™.” — Manic Mommy

Some days I think I live in that alternate universe,

or I would like to move to one…

Alrighty, today is the beginning of the Monday Potluck Blog Hop.

What that means is that YOU can throw your own potluck and link below…this week I will keep the Linky up until Thursday (and your potluck doesn’t have to be on Monday this week).

From now on until I get tired I will be posting my potluck on Sunday evening and you can link up between Sunday evening and the following Tuesday night.

I have written up a little HOW TO THROW A POTLUCK which also has a lot of the images I use.   Feel free to take what you want/need.   There are really no rules about what is in a potluck.   It just needs to be random.   That is it!

You are already here. I just wanted to test it!
Bobbi Janay @ When did I go from a kid to a grown up
She started this potluck because I told her too.
Potluck, its whats for dinner

This linky list is now closed.

  1. Where’s the code? I didn’t post anything about food. Is that ok? I assumed it was a metaphor. =)

  2. I’m in. Sorta. If I have time.
    I have potluck commitment issues…
    Just in case, where’s the code?

  3. you can find the code under the “enter here” button in the by clicking on “get the code here”

  4. no food required…I can’t cook.

    Just call it a potluck and link back here…that is all!

  5. I think ours multiply…is that possible?

  6. I’m not sure that Free WP is happy with me using a scr code in my blog. I’ve tried it in visual and in HTML and it either prints the code into the blog, or ignores it completely. : (

    Phooey! I’ll keep trying but I’m worried I’m going to be a dead end on the hop, and that was NOT the plan. (That sounds so bad!)

    Or I could link back here. Ok, I’ll do that in the meantime.

  7. love this idea… i’m not in this week… but next week for sure. (possibly)

    i am a little intimidated… you host such a lovely pot luck. I sort of feel like martha stewart just said “come on, misty, decorate my cake.” which, lets be honest, if that ever happened it would be a trick. probably…now I’m nervous…

  8. Here s where Data De-Duplication henceforth referred to as a file-based online backup reviews.
