Three things

Scribbit gave me the Mwah award. Isn't that sweet? Right back atcha, blondie. Thank you! Mwah! Mwah! Heather at Cool Zebras also awarded me this gem. Yay! I'd like to pass this on to . . . you!

- - - - -

And Kelly at Don Mills Diva tagged me for a meme about favorite posts I've written. This is tough -- I don't know if I am capable of picking the best/favorite posts of mine -- but here are a few goodies from the past six months.

Oh, and the posts have to follow certain guidelines.

Link 1 must be about family.
Link 2 must be about friends.
Link 3 must be about yourself.
Link 4 must be about something you love.
Link 5 can be anything you choose.

1. A baby's parting gift. Babyhood, toddlerhood, mamahood.

2. Weekend camping trip, Or, Lovebug orgy fest. This is what happens when you go camping with friends during lovebug season.

3. Where are you, Jamie Lynn Drury? Making friends, or not.

4. The greatest of these is love. Just love.

5. My dad can beat up your dad. For all those competitive fathers.

I'm also supposed to encourage you to comment on these posts if you haven't already.

And then I'm supposed to tag five people, two of whom are newish to me, except this is already a lot of supposed-tos, so I will just let you have at it if you'd like to show off your favorite posts.

Thanks, Kelly!

Also, um, have you seen this? Would you use it? For the purpose it's intended?

OK, four things. Don't forget I'm Sincere Week coming up in two weeks. Write a post to imitate your favorite blogger(s). It can be a post in his or her writing style, or it can be your version of a classic post he or she wrote . . . that kind of thing. Show your favorite bloggers that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!

Congrats on your award!

And would i use that? Umm ... it looks kind of gross ... how do you store it and carry it and wash it properly (since it talks about using it camping and such?). I'm pretty sure I wouldn't ever use it but!

Uh, no. I don't think I'd be using that product. Makes me think they have penis envy or something.

You are so smart! I wish I'd thought of that! TJMAXX!!!!!
I hadn't told my hubby about my giveaway yet, and when he went to check my blog and saw I had 40 comments (at the time), he told me I was the blog queen (at least in our house where our own parents don't even comment on our blogs)!

That SweePee is a great idea for emergency stops in strange places, don't you think. I would certainly try it at least. And I'd try that TJ Maxx CG out too. Great giveaway. Thanks.

TJ Maxx ... I don't know what it is like to have hundreds of comments either. You are much closer to that than I am. Maybe it would be a little over whelming.

TJ Maxx - my favorite! Hope I win! Come on over and enetr my bloggy giveaway by Feb. 8

Brilliant idea! I quickly learned at the last giveaway that most people don't bother to read the instructions, they just hurry-up-and-comment so they can hop off to the next blog. But since I'd be interested in winning your GC to TJMaxx, I hopped over here to see your other posts.

I like the meme about 5 favorite posts. I've been blogging for awhile, so that would be a fun one to run on blog... next week maybe. So, I'll bookmark you to come back for it.

Thanks so much!

That My SweetPee invention is...crazy/weird/funny/etc. I almost thought it was a joke at first. But I guess it might be nice for...camping?

P.S. I wouldn't use it at TJ Maxx, but I would totally use a gift card there. Please enter me.
