And the Mother of the Year, Decade, Millenium Goes to.....(also Bee's Halloween Giveaway Final Day!)

So, I am now officially "Mother of the Year!"  Wanna see how I won this prestigious title?  Take a look...


Meet Connor (aka Teen Caveboy)...he's hanging out with Shim, lead singer of Sick Puppies!  You may know Sick Puppies from this very famous video....



(Why not go ahead and watch it again? It will brighten your day and chase away those Monday blues...)

Connor and I headed out to a Sick Puppies concert yesterday.  It was FANTASTIC!  They are amazing entertainers and the band was very kind in the autograph line.  (Connor was first in line, of course!)  So how exactly does all of this make me Mother of the Year?  Sit a spell and I'll tell ya!


Sick Puppies management made it VERY clear that NO photos were allowed to be taken with any band member personally.  They would allow photos of the autograph signing, but no "one on one" photos with any band member PERIOD.  Not Gonna Happen...Don't Bother Asking...Just get your autograph and go. Totally understandable since there were over 500 people (seriously, no joke) in line for autographs.  Well, being the rebel that I am, I saw an opportunity after they were done doing autographs and just went for it.  I wanted to make this special for Connor. I found a staff member who seemed open to my request and thought the worst that could happen was that he would say no.  No big....But...he said YES!  So off we went to meet Shim!  He couldn't have been nicer...this guy absolutely rocks!  He was very, very kind to Connor.  It was truly one of the highlights of Teen Caveboy's life!


Some highlights of the show....








So there you have it!  Mother of the Year!  Who's your Mommy now?!  (Thanks Chilly, again, for my awesome camera! I've had the best year in picture taking EVER!)

(Update! Comments are now closed for the Monster Giveaway! Thank you for participating!)

Whooo's 100?

I am! This is my 100th post!

To say I am astonished and humbled by the incredible support of my blog from fellow bloggers, friends and family would be an ginormous understatement! I am truly, deeply grateful that ya’ll stop by and visit me! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

(I had this scheduled to post at midnight, but for some reason, it didn't! I got up to check it about 1:30 am and discovered blogger's mischief! Sorry if you came by then!)

All righty then…do you have a cup of coffee, hot cocoa, tea, martini? How about a masseuse? You’re gonna need it! It’s my 100th post and by the time you are done reading it, you’ll probably feel as old and tired as Rip Van Winkle! You know me and my long winded rambley-ness! (....the giveaway is here..I promise!)

So, this is what I’ve come to know about blogging in the last 100 days….

Blogging is like taking a vacation to a place you never k…

A Wee Drop of Irish (or Cloudy With a Chance of B*tchy Part 2)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! How about a wee stroll down memory lane?  Thank you to everyone who messaged me about sharing this blast from the past again this year:)  (yes, Maureen...I do read your emails too!)  Even though it was originally posted in 2009, not too much has changed (says Dawn in her "I can't believe I have PMS every single year at this same time"  happy (think Pharrell singing "Happy") voice.  So grab a cup of Irish coffee, Jameson whiskey, Guinness or whatever suits your fancy on this fine St. Patrick's Day and let me share a tale of whimsy with you.  (and may the luck of the Irish be with you if you come my way today!  Don't say I didn't warn you!)   



Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we? 

Well, since I have a full day of Irish activities planned, I guess I better be gettin' my Irish on....hmm...let's s…

Chilly Update...

I hate this disease with a passion...more on that in a moment...

First and foremost, there aren't enough words in the English language to convey my most sincere gratitude for the amazing love and support you've all shared with my family. I am completely overwhelmed and very humbled by it all. I've shared all of your comments and emails with Chilly and the kiddos. It has meant so much to us! Thank you, thank you and thank you again!

I wish I could write that Chilly is fine and coming home tomorrow. I wish I could go back to last Friday when every fiber of my being was screaming at me that Chilly was having a heart attack. I wish I would have pinned him to the ground and shoved an aspirin down his throat when he put me off about his symptoms. I wish he would have agreed to go to the ER...Sadly, I can't turn back time...

We were told today that Chilly has suffered a stroke in addition to a heart attack. These two events occured together...meaning, he had the stroke w…
