This Post Is Brought To You By The Number 2

Not THAT number 2. Gross.  The actual number 2. Why?

Not because the Longhorns are number 2. No no no. Because we’ll have TWO winners this week. I love having TWO winners!! Will it be annoying if I write TWO in all caps every time I use it today? Let’s see.

So now that it is TWO thousand ten, everyone is in a big “out with the old, in with the new” mood. Me too. I mainly want to be out with the clutter in my house and in with a housekeeper. (Does anyone know a housekeeper in Houston that works for free? Or maybe for blog shoutouts. Or for food? I can provide food!)

You might be out with the fast food and in with the home-cookin’! Or out with the procrastinating and in with the Martha behaviors. Minus the whole insider trading and prison thing… let’s leave those in the past.

One thing I know is this… You need a calendar. How about a nice clean, decluttered, beautiful one:

Or maybe a cute one to put on your desk at work.

Aren’t they sweet?

And this is totally not what I’m supposed to be promoting, but just look at her stationary! Specifically these TWO.


I love many more than those TWO but I just needed a reason to say TWO.

(I think this is one of those instances where I think I’m hilariously clever and you are clicking the little “x” in the top right.)

I guess I’ll get to the point. Stelie Designs is giving TWO people their calendar of choice. I’d really like the wall calendar for my office but we have glass walls and it’s really a pain to try to get thumb-tacks to stick in there. So maybe I’d rather have the desk calendar. Although it doesn’t really matter what I want, I don’t get one. You do. And so do you.

And here’s how:

Leave any ol’ comment. You can say anything but I’d prefer if you said something fun. Like a joke… or a haiku.
Blog or tweet about the giveaway. Or blog AND tweet. (One entry for each.)
Put my button on your blog and make sure that when people click it, it actually leads them here! (If it’s already on your blog, let me know!)
-Go to Stelie Designs (<– link) and tell me your favorite item. She’s giving away TWO calendars but it’s possible that your favorite item is something else. And that’s okay… you just won’t win that something else… but you’ll still be eligible to win the calendars. That was confusing. 

-Remember ages ago when we used to do the TWO word challenge? You give me TWO random words and I manipulate them into a cohesive post? Well it’s been so long since we’ve done it that I don’t know where your latest suggestions are saved. So for an EXTRA ENTRY, give me TWO random words and we’ll see about getting this going again! And if you have no idea what I’m talking about, click here for an example… or just a funny story about inappropriate church lady brownies. Ahh… good times.

So what is that, like 17 chances to enter?? Six I think. You have until Wednesday at midnight to enter. Be a peach and if you put all of your entries in one comment, tell me how many entries are included. That would be grrrrreat.

Avery Picks An Apron Winner

Last night after the game (that I don’t want to talk about, thank you very much) we drew a winner for the Boojiboo apron. Avery decided that since she was the new kid on the block, she should get to draw. I thought that was a pretty good idea because that would mean that y’all get to see more pictures of her.

So without further ado, my niece.

She’s is preparing herself for the task at hand.

She’s going in!

(She’s so cute, I could just hurl!)

She even decided to wake up for a second.
You can see it in her eyes, “Dad! What the deuce??”

I know that’s hard to see. I couldn’t get any closer because Avery doesn’t like cameras being in her face. Every time we take a picture, she squints. Not cool.

Our winner is Ashley Brenstein.Who, as a matter of fact, is engaged and learning how to cook. So I think this went to a good person. Although I know a lot of you will be pissed. The good news is that Boojiboo (<– link) has an entire store full of aprons and you are welcome (encouraged, even) to go get one! If you do, send me a picture!
