Another Friday...

And I've learned precious little this week. It wasn't a bad week exactly, just a blah week. I definitely left the house and we definitely did stuff, I'm just not sure what we did.

Anyways, here's what I learned in the 2nd to last week of June:

1. Our friends are funny. The searches that you guys are putting together for our little contest are fabulous. Some early favorites include: "sleeping with Zack Effron is a feast of awesome," "child leashes slut monkey," and "Jackasses drooling over buzzed monkeys." There are also another couple of searches including "lisa and laura are whores" and "justin bobby stripper punishment." I'm not sure if these are part of the contest or not, but I found them highly entertaining.

2. Rainy days = Mommy Fail. Have you ever spent the entire day inside your house with a 2-year-old and a 4-year-old while it rains buckets outside? Have you done it 4 days in a row? I hate Cleveland weather.

3. Summer television isn't that bad. Now that the Real Housewives of New Jersey has come to a premature end (that season was WAY too short) we have NYC Prep to look forward to. And Royal Pains is getting better. Honest. The acting isn't terrible and the doctor is really cute even if he is really short. And fine, I'll admit it. I watch True Blood. It's horrible, trashy and oftentimes repulsive, but it's also compulsively watchable.

4. I love Libba Bray. I'm on the final book (The Sweet Far Thing) in Libba Bray's Gemma Doyle series and it's fantastic. The books are paced perfectly and are almost impossible to put down. As I'm reading, I keep trying to figure Bray's secret, but so far all I can come up with is phenomenal writing. Helpful.

5. Dads rock. Sunday is Father's Day and I'm grateful for all of the dads in my life. My dad and my father-in-law are two of those rare men who wanted to be involved in every aspect of their kid's lives. They set a precedent that my husband lives up to every single day when he changes diapers, puts the kids to bed, gives bubble baths and plays the infamous "catch me" game. I'm so grateful to be surrounded by amazing dads.

Well, that's all she wrote for this week. Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

I think my hopes for NYC Prep are WAY too high...these kids could never live up to my expectations. Gawd, I hope their lives are train wrecks. (And what kind of human being does that make me???)

I love #5, thank goodness for hands-on husbands!! Mine acts more like the mommy than I do sometimes. He deserves a week, not just a day!!!

I think everyone loves Libba Bray. She's very lovable.

Okay, now I MUST check out Libby Bray.

Fun contest, can't wait to hear about the winners. That should be great for a giggle.

I have to get my hands on one of Libba's books. I've heard such good things.

Wow, I came to the comments to LOL about the Google contest, but everyone is just praising Libba Bray! Guess I should jump on the bandwagon and check her out too...

(P.S. "Lisa and Laura are whores" was one of mine, but I thought sleeping with Zack Efron was funnier. Can I have multiple entries? I can Google funny search terms all day...)

Sounds like I need to check out Libba Bray! You two have a great weekend!

I loved Libba Bray too -- until I met her at a conference and learned she was nice AND funny. Then I decided to hate her ;)

Dads do rock! Especially when they do diaper duty. :D

Have a great weekend yourself!
