Again, this may be funny just to me

Bored this rainy Saturday, Doug decided to do-up P’s do.  Warning, this may only be funny to me:

I hope you all feel like winners of course, but the winners of the Kroger Gift Cards are:


#11 AKA Bargain Briana and #2 musicalkel

Congrats – I’ll send you an email later today to get your mailing information!


Begin your rampant jealousy now as I list the gals I’m hangin’ with for Moms Nite Out:

Andrea from MommySnacks

Tricia and Cortney from Once A Month Mom

Erin from $5 Dollar Dinners

Marcy from Stretching A Buck

Jenny and Emily from Mommin’ It Up

Tara from Deal Seeking Mom

LuAnn from I Want MK

(hope I didn’t miss anyone!)

And thanks to MomSelect and the wonderful people from Unilever I don’t even need to worry about dinner!  This amazing package arrived yesterday in the mail and all I can say is WOW and THANK YOU!!


All these great Unilever products you see here and amazing coupons for free (and near-free products): Bertolli Meals (my boyfriend Rocco – not mommybits’ boyfriend, ahem – introduced those to me at Blogher last year) and they are one of my favorites when it comes to a quick and delicious meal; Country Crock and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter (perfect as we head into CORN ON THE COB SEASON!!). 

And as if that wasn’t enough, they included a terrific cookbook – “Family Fun Book” – from Jennifer Bushelman, the author of “Kitchen Coach” Cookbooks.  I can’t wait to try some of those dishes and ideas out.

Thanks to Maria BaileyBSM Media,, mariabailey100MomSelect, and MomTalkRadio for inviting us to the  first national celebration for MOMS, a tradition in the making if you ask me! They are hoping to stream live video of party mommanimals around the country, so go to and look for us Ohio gals! Here is the direct link to our Datyon PAR-TAY:

So I better get in the shower while P is sleeping, I gotta bit of a drive ahead (totally worth it) and I’m out the door as soon as Daddy Knows Best gets here.  Tune it tomorrow when I’m sure to have some incriminating lovely photos and video of our Moms Nite Out Adventures!

We were at the zoo all weekend.  Went for a class Saturday morning and then Sunday the weather turned out to be near perfect (ha Cincinnati weather “forecasters”) we headed back to stroll around for a couple of hours.

Late in the day, just as the zoo was closing up for the night, we stumbled upon this, apparently love was in the air:

I had no idea their feathers spread out that much.  And that shimmey thing they do when the female walked by was amazing.  It was a rare moment indeed.  Sadly,  I don’t think the Love Doctor was successful, that female was promised to another.

Yes that is my P shouting “He’s gotta bigga one” over and over.  I can only hope she was referring to his feathers.  I took my toddler to Peacock Porn!

Thanks again Mo for the Flip – this moment would have been lost if it wasn’t for you!



Go ahead, GET LIPI!

Why get so riled by the events of the world, you ask? Because…

"Becoming a mother makes you the mother of all children. From now on each wounded, abandoned, frightened child is yours. You live in the suffering mothers of every race and creed and weep with them. You long to comfort all who are desolate." Charlotte Gray
