It is Monday.
It is Potluck.
*See how I take a theme and work it seamlessly in?
I am just SICK that Mother’s Day is over.
Sick. Sick. Sick.
Why you ask?
It is going to cut my blog traffic to a fraction of what I received last week.
Oh, that makes sense…Mother’s Day…you write a mommy blog.
Nope. My increase in traffic over the last week has nothing to do with all the mommy crap I write. It has to do with the selling of Pajama Jeans as a gift to mom. The radio ads were so intense that people were Googling up a storm about them and landing on my pajama jeans review by the 100s…
It’s OK. I was used to writing to myself before. I can get used to it again.
Last week was also a very good week for funny comments. In response to my expose’ of eeny meeny, miny, moe:
“He's the ultimate spoiler isn't he? Next he's gonna tell him how The Sixth Sense ended. (please, don't let him do that someday. That would be just WRONG.) ” — Elaine
Thanks Elaine for reminding me to NOT show my 9 year old The Sixth Sense…anytime soon.
Last week several of you threw potlucks! YAY. Thanks so much. If you are throwing a potluck this week, add your button to the Blog Hop below (please link DIRECTLY to your potluck post ONLY or I will remove your link and send you Beet Jello via mail).
Our unofficial potluck sponsor, Scrubbing Bubbles, is providing one of the potluck participants each week with a fabulous gift basket of Bubble Nirvana…things to make morning madness disappear.
Last week’s winner is…
You have until Tuesday night to link a potluck this week and be eligible for the fun spa basket which includes Scrubbing Bubbles new product, Extend-A-Clean.
Speaking of linking up…here is where you can do that:
You can add the Monday Potluck Blog Hop to YOUR potluck by clicking on the “get code” above.
And now for a little story…
The boys have been uninterested in everything in the world that doesn’t have to do with Legos and video games and candy. But something has changed all that as indicated by the intense campaigning I have been the recipient of for a shopping trip.
The boys WANT to go shopping?
The boys NEED to go shopping.
What has changed their world? Those rubber band bracelet things that are shaped in animals. Only they don’t have any yet because we haven’t found them. Does anyone know where we can find this sought-after treasure?
And now for a new feature!
The Word I am working into conversation this week…
This feature was the potluck brilliance of Ash. I love it and made a badge. I think I am going to use her word from last week as my word for this week…work with me, people, it is new. You can play along at home!
The word is: UNPRECEDENTED
Another feature my potluck can’t live without is…
Things I didn’t burn.
This gem was the brainchild of Martha.
This week I DID NOT burn: instant oatmeal, popcorn, yogurt or popsicles.
And again, another feature my potluck can’t live without for another week is…
Confession of the Week.
This potluck addition was from Heidi who I believe outpotlucked me (totally a word) on her very first try.
My kids ate pizza for both lunch and dinner one day last week.
*duck and run*
Let’s find out What is in Holly’s Fruit Bowl!
Three orange pencils that say GAME TRUCK, a red pen, a glue stick sans cap, a 9 foot piece of blue curling ribbon, a silver gum wrapper, a pair of safety scissors and a purple Hot Wheel.
Thanks for stopping by the Monday Potluck today…
I hope that your day is unprecedented.
