Doesn’t giveaway look weird as a word? You know how you look at a word and you’re suddenly convinced it’s not written correctly? Giveaway. Yeah, that’s right. (I know because I looked it up. I’m anal that way. I can’t help myself.)
So yes, a giveaway! My first giveaway! Yippee!
I’m so psyched about this giveaway (how many times can I write giveaway in this post?) because I’ve had the pleasure of watching it grow from afar. In spite of facebook’s many ills (girl, puh-lease…don’t get me started), it’s gotten me back in touch with some very cool people. One of those people of coolness is a high school friend, Janet, whom some of you may know as Muffintop Mommy, blogger extraordinaire. It actually takes a lot to make me laugh and for real this chick has me LOLing with every post she writes. And I mean real LOLing, not that fake facebook LOLing. No joke, her blog is awesome, and I’m not just saying that. I don’t go around talking awesomeness. I’m kind of a pain in the ass that way.
Anywho…Janet has been plugging away at writing for years (all while in charge of three youngin’ sons she affectionately calls the frat boys). A while back, before she started her blog, she emailed me some of her essays and asked me to take a look. Hi-freakin’-larious.
Yadda yadda yadda (Seinfeld reference, anyone?)…she wrote a book! Dude — a book! I’ve had a sneak peek (how cool is that?) and I have a feeling y’all are going to love it. It’s called Mommy Mixology: A Cocktail for Every Calamity. See? Told you you’d love it. And you’ll love her, too…well, if you like a little sass in your frass. Otherwise, you’ll hate it and stop reading this post now.
So yeah, I’m giving away a copy of her book! It’s due out in August (so the winner will have to be patient), but here’s all you have to do to enter to win:
- Leave a comment on this post describing your best worst parenting calamity. Nothing horrible or serious that will make me question a call to CPS or a therapy referral. Funny stuff, embarrassing stuff, gaffes, goofs, bring it on! Or…
- Leave a comment on the Peas Out Mama facebook page doing the same. Comments should be posted under the link to this blog post.
- Unless I am a friend of yours on facebook, please, please include a way to contact you should you be the winner!
That’s it! Super easy. I complicate my life in too many ways. This giveaway won’t be one of them. So how do you win? Make me laugh, make me smile. I’m picking the winner. Best answer wins. Hey, it’s my blog — I get to decide what’s funny. Am I right? Are we good? Cool!
I can’t wait to read these calamities. Because, let’s be honest, this is really an attempt to make me feel better about myself as a parent. Cheers! Clink.
***Deadline for entries is Wednesday, August 1st!***
