Potluck: I'm all in

Posted by texasholly |



Wow! It hardly seems like Monday when you only post twice the week before. The Nirvana was experiencing technical and time-space continuum problems. Technical problems were solved by my IT department (the long-suffering blog-Stedman) and the time-space continuum issues will soon be resolved by the time machine I am building in my garage (patent pending).

Today's potluck will not feature any food "that requires baking or cookin ;) Yes, I am THAT mom!" for Greta. I am so glad she is that kind of mom too. So everyone can help themselves to the 1/2 of bag Sam's Club size Dark Chocolate Peanut M&Ms sitting out on the kitchen counter.

We interrupt this potluck for an award ceremony:
JustanotherManicMommy sent this over. Thanks so much JAMM! If you missed the S-JAMM awards...you really missed out.


I would like to pass this award on to the following people*:
1. Manager Mom. Who reposted one of my very favorite posts of all time here.
2. Jenny Gardiner who I sometimes have a hard time keeping up with.
3. Veronica whose blog looks AMAZING. Makes me want to just stay for awhile.
4. Lisa at Very Busy Mom of Four. I had the pleasure of visiting with all 5 last week.
5. Flickrlover at I'd blog that who has one of those blogs that you say, "why didn't I find this sooner?"

*The Nirvana award disclaimer (enacted 7-21-08, ratified on that same date): I can't help it if I am not the only person on the Internet that thinks you are cute, smart, original, creative, hot, excellent, good, great, in need of a hug, in need of a bouquet of flowers, in need of a poem, and/or funny. I cannot be held accountable for the actions of others that may or may not have resulted in a duplication of the award in question. Accepting the award is up to you, but once you do accept said award if I hear any crap about said award I am revoking said award because if I gave you said award you deserved said award so deal with said award. Thank you very much.




This week I received visitors Googling, "alternative fuel bus" and "alternative fuel buses" and also "alternative toilet plungers". Just call me your alternative to ACTUAL knowledge. That would make a good tag line...


Reid (5) asked, "What would happen if a chicken laid the WRONG kind of egg?"


What is up with Holly's coccyx?

Present and accounted for.


Let's find out who is Peep of the Week...


In response to my weekend photo post, Car Wash. Car Wash:

"It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye to Turtle Wax."

Thanks Tootsie Farklepants for that sage warning. You are Peep of the Week!


Would it be super politically incorrect for Rhett (2) to be yelling "No way Jose!" in a Mexican Restaurant?

Despite the Nirvana difficulties last week, it was an awesome week. My "Holly throws herself under the alternative fuel bus" post was featured on Blog Nosh. I am down-right giddy. Thanks so much Blog Nosh!

Blog-Stedman and I both made the final table at the poker tournament last Monday evening. It was the first gleam of poker success for me within the walls of a Casino. I ended up a very shocked third who may have overstepped poker room decorum by dancing around screaming how fierce I was with wads of cash in hand.


And now it is time for...

What is in Holly's fruit bowl?

All my in poker cash (just kidding).

It doesn't get much better than that. May your Monday induce fierce dancing...

Suzie said...

I love the dark ones. I need a little sugar kick this morning.

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

Aaah yes, technical difficulties. That would be what I'm currently experiencing. Grrrr, TypePad.

I think 2 year olds get free passes on political correctness.

Beck said...

I caught my kids throwing dark m$ms into their breakfast cereal.
"Dark chocolate is GOOD for you!" they said, all innocent-like.

Rachel said...

Dark Chocolate rules.

Congrats on yet another award! You're racking them up woman!!

Happy Monday.

Tootsie Farklepants said...

Congrats on the award, your winnings, and Blog Nosh!! Great week indeed!

Misty said...

fierce dancing already... It's fun.
I want a bowl full of cash... It's my turn to be jealous.

Nanny Goats In Panties said...

I love the idea of you dancing around with fistfuls of cash yelling crazy things while bewildered onlookers wonder WTF?

:)

Lisa@verybusymomwith4 said...

Woo--hoo! Thanks for the award :)

Sounds like a fun poker tournament--glad you won and had fun!

Happy Campers said...

Hi from vacation! I loooove dark chocolate too, so thanks for thinking of me during this pot luck :)

Marcy - The Glamorous Life! said...

What IS the wrong kind of egg?

Elaine A. said...

They make dark chocolate peanut M&M's now?!?!

Sorry, gotta go...

Sarah said...

Oh potluck always makes me smile!! Thanks for the dark chocolate M&M's...I'll share my baby ruth with you if you'd like ;)

Congrats on making it to third in poker!! That's awesome...I've only ever done that once...by folding...a LOT...*lol*

Brittany said...

M&Ms, Bugles and Beer...my go to pot luck dish:)

Lizz @ Yes, and So is My Heart said...

I look forward to your potlucks. I think dark chocolate should be standard. It doesn't always have to be of the M&M variety, but do please keep it dark. Thanks and Happy Monday.

I love Mondays here - just thought I'd say so!

Jason said...

I love that Tootsie Farklepants! I'm glad she's your Peep of the Week.

frogpondsrock said...

Now I am sitting here wondering, what exactly the wrong kind of egg could be? mmmmmm

Danielle said...

I love a little "Flashdance" on Mondays!!!

Angie @ KEEP BELIEVING said...

no no no no no no no no no no. You don't dance after a big win. Now your gonna let everyone in on your tell when they see your feet start to Electric Slide under the table as you look at your pocket aces.

KEEP BELIEVING

stephanie (bad mom) said...

That was like ADD Post of the Day; LOVED - hey, dark chocolate M&Ms? Yummy.

(You're fun :D)

Loralee Choate said...

Potluck day makes me grin. (And feel hideous amounts of guilt that you are WAY better at Peep of the Week than I am. Le sigh...)

OHmommy said...

Mondays always rock at your place. ;)

Louise said...

No way Jose? THAT's funny! Probably depends on where you live whether or not it's politically incorrect (like that should matter). But where I live, you would have more than half the men in the restaurant turning to see what they were not supposed to do.

Come on, what's REALLY in the fruit bowl?

Veronica said...

Oh thankyou so much! Makes me feel bad for lurking over here instead of commenting like I should be.

AMomTwoBoys said...

Did you say DARK CHOCOLATE Peanut M&M's? I'll be right over.

Ok, Where Was I? said...

I love the new tagline. Alternative to actual knowledge. That's hilarious.

Domestic Accident said...

Oh, my that is hilarious! Smart kid you've got there.
