Monday Morning Coffee Clutch: The first edition

Holly at June Cleaver Nirvana does these great "Pot Luck Mondays" - an amalgamation of updates on various topics, including, but not limited to "What's in Holly's fruit bowl?" and "What's up with Holly's coccyx?" Because I don't have a fruit bowl, my coccyx is rather dull, and I have a hard time talking about myself in the third person, I can't completely copy her. Besides its "imitation is the most sincere form of flattery", not copying so I'm morphing my past "Weekend Updates" into "Monday Morning Coffee Clutches". And if I don't get them posted until afternoon, well, its 8 a.m. somewhere.

Moments for Me
My friend Tammy used to host these on Mondays, but then her Mr. Linky broke and well, I think most of us let them fall by the wayside. But dang it - I'm determined to not just become some Mom with frumpy waist-high jeans and a Pooh t-shirt!

Friday morning I went to my friend Emily's new salon and had my hair done - I'm letting it grow a little longer than usual, and she put some 'copper' color in it. I'll have to take some pictures when its not greasy and tied up for ya. Tryin' to stay purty for the ol' man, ya know.


Recently, I got the above award from Penelope at the Cafe at the End of the Universe and Kelly, the Don Mills Diva. I want to thank them, and award it to the following peeps:

1) Rebecca from Ramblings by Reba

2) Melissa at Green Girl from Wisconsin

3) Vodka Mom from I Need A Martini

4) the brains behind Zip 'n' Tizzy

and last but certainly not least...

5) Christy at Cakerwalkers

Other Random Bloggie-relatedness
A few months ago, Lotus did this contest where the prize was the travelling t-shirt. Entrants needed to send in a shot of their bewbs to enter.

Guess I was bored. I did.

No, not nekkid boobies. Clothed boobies. It was all in good, clean, PG-13 fun.

But she lost the shot of my bewbs and so sent me a consolation prize, a 'floating picture frame' from Brookstone. I haven't put pictures in it yet but my boys are MESMERIZED by it. Just wanted to give a little shout out to Lotus to say 'thanks!'


Random video of the week
Saw this on Vodka Mom's blog! I ♥ Craig Furguson and he makes a VERY good point. Enjoy, and I hope you have a great week! (OH! And come back tomorrow for a big announcement!)

I love it! Thanks for the linky love. And I am a little jealous of your super boring coccyx.

The video was really fun.

Sarcastic Mom (aka Lotus) said...
