Teething Biscuit Giveaway!

St. Amour Teethers


Remember those teething biscuits I raved about?

Well, the owners of the company were awesome, and sent me a few boxes of them, along with some of their other products, which are some lovely kid-friendly cookies called Dino Bites in different flavors. All of the products are 100% natural, vegan, and well, awesome. I have to admit that I am not a vegan, and love my butter, but even I really enjoyed the cookies. They are light, delicately flavored, and have just the perfect amount of crisp.

So, I’d like to give you some! I’ll be giving away four sets of teething biscuit/cookie combos, with a total of three boxes per prize.

Here’s how you can enter:

One entry for adding Teeny Manolo on your RSS feed.

Two entriesfor becoming a fan of Teeny Manolo on Facebook.

Two entries for following Teeny Manolo on Twitter. (Be like Veronica Webb, who for some strange reason is following me! I will confess to screeching when I saw the name! Love her!)

Three entries for blogging about the giveaway and linking back to the site.

The first three options are easily done by looking for the handy-dandy Twitter, Facebook, and RSS buttons at the top of the peach-colored middle column of the site.

The winner will be picked by random number generator on Tuesday June 22, 2010.  Unfortunately, contest winners must be from the United States or Canada.  I love you Aussies, but it would cost me a fortune!

You must leave a comment on this post so I know how many entries to give you! We work on the honor system here, so don’t make me disqualify you!

A “Mom ‘Do” Done Right

Salma Hayek cannes 2010

Have you seen Salma Hayek’s new shorter style? She is genetically blessed, though, with uber-thick hair. My hair would never do that. It would just sort of hang there, not swirl so impressively.

Spring/Summer Dresses For Girls

Oh yes, it’s that time again!  Time to look at all the pretty dresses!  I know some of these are a bit on the spendy side, but did I mention how pretty they are?

What do I look for in a dress? Vibrant color combinations, wearability, and uniqueness.  Because I have become intimately acquainted with the girl’s section of the clothing store, and there are just so many dresses that look awfully similar to each other, and I can only take so much pink and brown and pink and white.

Have you ever been just going along, thinking your life is pretty A-OK when blam! Something or someone or a combination of  somethings and someones happen to throw off your mojo?  Well, today that is me, and what can I say, I’m a bit verklempt.  And damn it, I can’t blame post-partum mood swings because after five months, those should pretty much be gone, right?

So, as a distraction, I went looking at some spring/summer shoes for the young ladies, and found some that lightened my mood a bit.  Ahhh, shoe therapy always works, doesn’t it?

Because I Can’t Resist

Posting a teensy bit about the newest addition to our family.

The Munchinette was born at the very civilized hour of 9:33am on November 5. She came in at a healthy but petite 7lbs, 6oz. She currently has curly brown hair and blue eyes. Both of those could change, I’m guessing.

I had a repeat C-section, and according to the anesthesiologist, I set some sort of World Record in Vomiting During the Giving of Life. I guess my body does not react well to anesthesia, and I even told the doctor prior to the surgery that I had some similar issues with the Munchkin, although not nearly as bad. Even the anti-nausea medication he put into my drug cocktail didn’t work. Boo.

So, I’m slightly sleep deprived, even though I am lucky enough to have a wonderful husband who is taking two months off work to help out with my recovery and just generally making sure that the Munchkin gets to school on time and wearing appropriate clothing.

Here’s to the many sleepless nights to come!

My Mom, The Style Icon

Mom style icon picture

Who says that moms are all about “mom jeans” and sweats?

Certainly not the people who have submitted photos of their stylishly clad mothers at the aptly named “My Mom, The Style Icon” blog.

I don’t know that my mother would have been considerd a style icon, but she did have some pretty rad cat-eye glasses during the seventies.  Oh yeah, and she had a sort of bouffant hairstyle that went well with the glasses. 

I don’t have a huge impression of her clothing, but the sad part is, she has a lot of her old clothing still in her closets, and yes, she has closets plural, so all I would have to do is go over to her house and have a look-see.  She probably still fits into most of them still, damn her.

I do seem to remember a pair of white go-go boots.  I think I’m going to have to dig up some old albums!
