Butts and giveaways

Friends, my butt HURTS!!

Every time I sit down it says to me "Hello?? Do you not remember what you did to me yesterday???? STOP SITTING DOWN!!"

Just thought you'd like to know :)

I have to share a funny conversation Boyfriend and I had with Mama Smurf yesterday, but I have to set the scene first

Every night Boyfriend and I say prayers...we kneel on the couch cause it doesn't hurt as bad, we hold hands, and, as Boyfriend is very...cuddly? I guess is a good word, he likes to kneel pretty close to me...oh, and we face each other

So last night we got all ready to pray and, as it was my turn, I began the prayer and had only got into the very beginning lines when we here from upstairs:

"Hey Manda? Aaron?"

I opened my eyes a little and Boyfriend and I sat looking at each other, trying to figure out what we should do

I said "Yes, mom?"

She came downstairs and started to ask us a question when she looked at us and stopped

"What are you doing?"

"We're just getting ready to pray"

(I didn't want to make her feel bad by telling her she had interrupted)

"Okay...why do you look like you just got your hand caught in the cookie jar then? Were you being inappropriate???? Making out????"

I just laughed and said "No, it's cause we had already started our prayer"

"OH!! I'm so sorry!! I didn't know!!"

And then she proceeded to ask us her question and we answered and as she went upstairs she said "Okay, you can go ahead with your long as you don't make out"

Haha. Oh that woman makes me laugh :)

So are you ready for the exciting news I told you I had for you today?? :)

I am hosting my very first official giveaway!! :D

Isn't that exciting??

The wonderful people over at CSN Stores asked me to host a giveaway, so host I shall!! The lucky winner will receive a $35 gift code that you can use on ANYTHING...and believe me, they have a lot to offer with their 200+ websites

So, I went looking myself to see what you were all going to get, and I found this section of barstools that caught my eye

And look what I found:

Isn't that so cute?!?! They also have them in red, orange, green, blue, brown, yellow, and pink!! (but come on, who wouldn't want it in purple??)

CSN could be a very dangerous thing for me...I've already found a bunch of purple stuff that I want...


So, here are the rules for the giveaway:

1. Be a follower :)

2. Visit their stores and tell me what YOU would get...I'm very curious :)

3. Just leave a comment on this blog

That's all. I won't make it too difficult

The contest will run for 2 weeks. I'll keep a tally of all those enter and then find a fair way of picking the winner :)

So, November 13th at midnight (my time...aka MST) will end it and then I'll pick a winner

Sound good??


Last, but not least, I have to show you what I bought today while looking for Halloween stuff!!

I'm still deciding on whether or not to take them back...I don't want to, but we'll see:

Aren't they lovely Daze?? They're purple!!

AREN'T THEY SO FUN???? Well, I guess "it" would be better in that sense cause you can only see one, but just go with it.

Okay, I must go continue to work on mine and Boyfriend's Halloween costumes (no worries, pictures will be shown) 


Hope you all had a good Friday!!

Your butt hurts. hahahaha. sorry it just sounds so funny.

CSN stores. I would get something for my backyard. Even tho, those purple bar stools rock.

And your purple shoes. oh my. I am beside myself with jealousy.

Consider myself in the running.

No, no, don't take them back. Those are great shoes. You'll be the only one wearing shoes like that, for sure.
Your mom's funny. (Psst, I hope you have some make-out time when she's asleep or not around.)

Cheeseboy said...

I'm good on bar stools, but that prayer story was a classic.

Kendra Sue said...

I would get bedding. The pretty kind since I have like the homemade, simple kind.

And never take shoes back. Shoes are like jewelry, it is always there for you and never lets you down.

Noelle said...

I love the shoes!

Domestic Diva said...

I'd use it toward a guidecraft kitchen helper (though purple is way cool). Thanks for the chance.

I follow on gfc

You set the scene very well!! I laughed SO loud!!! :D :D Mothers!!

Your purple shoes look gorgeous! (I'd fear tripping and stick to my flats though. Boring.)

You forgot to announce something mindblowingly important. CSN giveaways are for US residents only. :D I know because this girl here never gets to participate!

Matt and Manda said...

Do not even think about taking that beautiful purple foot adornment back! I LOVE it! Oh, and to second Mama Smurf - don't make out while you're praying. ;) heehee

Those purple shoes are too too gorgeous. Definitely keep 'em! So cool that you're hosting the CSN Stores giveaway. They contacted me to do one as well -- I just don't have it together yet. If I got anything, it would be a new toaster. Our toaster is suckin' wind right now! P.S. You and your darling sweetie pie make me think of the song, I say a little prayer for you. =)

Baby Sister said...

@ Domestic Diva - That's a good idea too.

Ummm...what's gfc?

@ Amanda - I'll try to work on not making out while praying. ;)

I want the air baked cookie sheets. I'm sorry you didn't win my give away but I'll sure give yours a try.
I love the shoes on you. They really are beautiful. I couldn't see me in anything like that but then I'm a life time older then you too.
Love the story and your mama. I bet her face turned 10 shades of pink.
Take care and have a blessed afternoon.

Jami said...

I would get some new Fiesta-ware to compliment my current colors. (I love the turquoise.) OR new baking sheets. I know, boring, but I do bake a lot!

Amy said...

I want an non-ugly light fixture. :D Count me in!
