A Little Bit of Everything + The Winner Announced!

I just can't resist adding a few more of my favorite things, since I had so much fun reading all of your favorite things! Of course, I snagged the first bunch of tulips that I could find. Shocked, aren't you?

I have two new favorite bands that I just can't get enough of; The Decemberists and Mumford & Sons. Love love love new (to me!) bands.

February, at our house, is known as Love Month. The first 14 days of the month have special designations such as, We Love Breuklyn Day or We Love Our Teachers Day. Sprinkled into the mix is a day to make Valentine's Day cards and a day to make Valentine's Day Rainbow Cupcakes.

Of course this means two things. 1. I get to buy exorbitant amounts of sprinkles and not feel guilty about it. 2. Everyone wants to know who gets to be honored on February 1st. Oh, the things we worry about over here.

This year, Paiz gets the honor. She has decided to acquiesce to my ranting and raving about potty training therefore she has been awarded the February 1st honor. You can read all about my adventures over at where I am also giving away a $20.00 gift certificate.

All you need to do is leave a comment over at about something hilarious that has happened to you this month. Day Two of potty training and Paiz is losing interest fast. I need the entertainment. Desperately. Trust me.

Even though I told my kids that we might get started on Valentine's cards, I have decided that I lied. I am happily working on my own projects and they will just have to wait. I am so up for the Mean Mother of the Year award. And it's only January.

Thank you thank you thank you for all of the fun comments on my 400th post!! I am working my way through and having a blast checking out your blogs. My little troublemaker was more than happy to choose our winner.

Congrats, Sara! Estee, I love the love month idea. Good luck with the potty training. I hope Paizley decides it's a go. LOL.
