Monday Giveaway : Sticky Candy

Hello all! I am back from my faux summer vacation. I had a little staycation (my husband took the girls to visit his parents for a few days.) That was totally glorious. All I did was sleep, read, watch True Blood (only on season 3.) Oh and clean the house. The price for the staycation. Then the girls were home so I stayed offline for a few days. Summer school started to day (I am a meanie and send them) so it's back to blogging. And I am so glad, because today's giveaway rocks! FREE CANDY!!! … [Read more...]

Monday Giveaway : Parenting With Crappy Pictures

Want to be LMAO IRL? Then enter to win a copy of Amber Dusick's book Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures which was just released (congrats Amber!)

It will let you know what you are in for. This book would be a bad ass baby shower gift. Or even an even better "you survived the first year" gift for the parents on a child's first birthday. Do as I do, and include a bottle. Seriously, I was laughing and recognition as I read every word. Amber, who's been a Twitter friend for a while, captures just how craptastic parenting can be.
