This is my first, and who knows maybe my last weekly wrap up, but I thought I’d give it a try. Some of my favorite sites use Weekly Wrap Ups as a way to put the week’s posts and other stuff in one spot which I love because then I’m able to catch up all from one place.
I’ll be listing my week’s posts along with some of my favorites from other places around the web as well.
Is your house a form of birth control too? Thanks for all the shares on my 15 Things My Friends Without Kids are Thinking When They Visit My House; in just four days it’s become my 7th most popular post of all time!
Big news! This week Hallmark also hired me! Well, sort of…you can read the work they actually did pay me for here. No news when I’ll be making cards though…
Also from me this week, I had some advice on what to do if you see anyone using their Elf on the Shelf already with some help from Troll from the Pole.
Oh, and tomorrow the Cozy by LuLu scarf giveaway ends – hurry up and enter! Winner picks their favorite!
On Facebook, I showed you how I pulled a hammy dancing around the house to “Fame,” which surprisingly wasn’t related to the giant hole in my Lucky Jeans – again my deepest apology to anyone who got a peek at my ass at school, the grocery store, the pharmacy, and the neighborhood before I realized it was there.
I made a new ecard inspired by a rare event:
But this old one was popular this week too:
From other places around the web, did you hear the co-founder of Lululemon blame the consumers for their fabric woes? Well, I’ve never had a problem – to keep my Lululemon yoga pants from experiencing that pesky fabric pilling on the inner thigh area, I simply rub chubby fingers, which are often covered in butter or bacon grease, onto the fabric. The grease helps ease the friction from my “over-zealous wearage,” and helps my $100 yoga pants stay in shape! Just kidding; I wouldn’t spend $100 on yoga pants, especially not from that guy…I couldn’t wait to read People I Want to Punch in the Throat’s take on Lululemon’s Yoga Pant Problems. They certainly had it coming.
I really related to Motherhood WTF’s Waiting for Tragedy (or as I like to call it, “worrying about the worst case scenario so that if it ever happens I’m prepared – sort of”).
Mommy Shorts shared an award-winning short her daughter co-starred in, and it was the cutest thing I saw all week. Suburban Haiku had another funny 3-liner on NickMom, and Nicole Leigh Shaw, Tyop Aretist made me LOL with her Missed Connections (for Moms) also on Nick Mom.
Now that I’ve finished laughing my way through Baby Sideburn’s I Heart My Little A-Holes, I’ve pre-ordered Ron Burgundy’s book Let Me Off at the Top!: My Classy Life and Other Musings.
On Pinterest I’m adding everything from festive to funny on my ‘Tis the Season Board, so if you have some Pins you’d like me to add, or boards about the holidays to follow, leave me a link in the comments.
Thanks to Facebook follower Claire Spiers for sharing this funny video from English comedian Michael McIntyre talking about the differences between people who have and don’t have children. My favorite bit was that he and his wife no longer say “Good Night,” but instead now just look at each other and say, “Good Luck.”
And one last note, even though there are over 70,000 of you who follow me on Facebook, only a fraction of you are actually seeing my posts according to my insights. Here’s how to make sure Facebook isn’t hiding posts from pages you want to read in just a few clicks of the mouse.
