>I’m only doing this for good karma…

This, here, is Liz and she likes to give stuff away for free.  I like to get stuff for free.  A match made in heaven. Only one problem…
I NEVER WIN.

So, as much as I love the author of Staying Home and Staying Sane, I really don’t want to tell you about her current giveaway.  I’m a tad bit competitive.  I never win anything and right now I stand to lose a really cute eco-friendly set of books for my 2yo, AH.  I get an extra entry for blogging about the goods and I’m not giving up until I get something for free.

CUTE, right? She’s got her book bag all set for the win.

Anyway, back to the books…

Love these colors! 
                 
                              

So Sweet.
 

For this giveaway, Liz at Staying Home and Staying Sane has partnered with Little Green Books By Simon and Schuster and there are going to be MULTIPLE WINNERS! 

Of course, this excites me.   Because, should you steal my thunder and go enter yourself for this bundle of awesomeness, there’s still a chance for me, ahem, my daughter to win! *cue evil laughter*   And nobody likes to win more than me, except for maybe Charlie Sheen, but that’s another post. 

There will be a grand prize winner (to win all 4 books reviewed by Liz) and then four other winners (each winning one of the reviewed selections).

While I really don’t want to share this little nugget of giveaway greatness, I’m hoping that doing so will send some good karma my way, thus, bringing home the goods for me, um, my kid!

Good luck, y’all!

All is fair in love & war,
Adrian

>What I’m Diggin’ Wednesday Blog Hop

>Here’s a little peek at what I’m diggin’ today…

Bedtime.
Two nights in a row, my 2 yr old has gone to sleep early, in her own bed without screaming and pleading to lay down in our bed.  I’m giddy like a kid on Christmas Eve over this!  Only I can’t scream of my joy from the roof tops because that would wake her up and ruin the moment.



Three letters: D.V.R.

This mama doesn’t get to watch live television.  Without DVR, I might not be able to keep up with the most crucial current events, like who got booted off Dancing With The Stars or the latest mobster fallout on General Hospital. Now, if only there were a time machine that could create the time for me to actually catch up on my 50 bazillion recordings.

This song.

Last week was a hot mess. I had a grueling week at work plus a 2 yr old with strep throat. Pulled in two separate directions and feeling really unsuccessful in both arenas. I felt like I was trying to do so much with so little time and energy. I was exhausted, emotional, snippy, and my attitude sucked. Monday, on the way home from a terrible day at work, I heard this song on the radio. And I cried. And cried. I’d heard it before but it seemed to speak to me in a different way this week.  Too often, I forget to seek God when I’m needing Him most.

Now on to the Q & A portion of this hop:
1. What is your biggest pet peeve?
This week it’s people who have a God complex at work.  I mean, it’s JUST work.  Do I take it seriously? Yes.  So serious that I’m willing to treat other’s as second class citizens because my task manager is more cruicial that yours? NO. Get over yourselves, people.

2. One pantry staple that your family could not live without?
Wheat bread.  I wish I had something more exotic or fancy shmancy sounding, like, couscous or ginger root extract.  But I don’t.

3. Favorite piece of clothing….you know the one….the one that you wear at least once a week?
My American Eagle boyfriend capris.  They are the most comfy pare of jeans I own.  They’re fashionably tattered and a little too big, so as to not make the muffin top overfloweth.

4. Favorite scripture or mantra that you tell yourself when the going gets tough?
 Proverbs 3:5-6. Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

5. Most hated household chore?
Dishes.  I hate them so much I married a man who would do them for me.  Gosh, I love him.
