Anyway, since my brain is pretty much fried from the day-to-day events of the past week, this is going to be a very random post of bullet-pointed things.
Thing #1: Toddlers, man.
I have long maintained - through three kids, even - that whoever coined the term "terrible two" was delusional. That three is far worse than two.
But I'm pretty sure my two-year-old, Corbin, is actually in the throes of terrible two-dom. You wanna know why?
Because I told him he couldn't eat mustard for lunch.
Because I told him to take his brothers' toothbrushes out of his diaper.
Because he's just a bossy little beast.
So either I've got a child who is ACTUALLY experiencing the "terrible twos" ... or his threes are going to be hellish beyond my wildest dreams. Either way: gray hairs.
... And big hips. I'm going to blame those on him too. I mean, I'm sure he's responsible in some roundabout way.
Thing #2: The Walking Dead comes back on this weekend OMGOMGOMG.
I am so freaking excited. I've never, ever missed a single episode. I caught up on parts of the marathon they had this week after the kids went to bed. Wednesday evening, I flipped back and forth between The Walking Dead and the Teen Mom 2 Reunion Special and reflected that my tastes in TV are pretty weird. Anybody else??
Thing #3: You guys need to win stuff.
I reeeeeally need to revamp my Giveaways and Reviews page (and my blog in general), but until I do, here's a list of the stuff you can currently win from The Frump, conveniently hyperlinked so all you gotta do is click and you're set up to enter:
$100 Visa gift card from Vanity Fair! ← because hello? Free money??
A Pur Water Filtration product soooo new, it hasn't even hit store shelves yet (and I'm giving away THREE of them!)
And next week, I'll be giving away one of these:
That's right. They are DELICIOUS AND EDIBLE CHOCOLATE GAMES. Although .......
This week I was PMS-ing so hard and Curtis was gone and I was desperately in need of chocolate so I ate the entire Monopoly set by myself. This is my confession.
Anyway, I've also got a few other fun giveaways coming up (if I don't, you know, eat them), so check back regularly!
Thing #4: I'll have some big news to share next week! Hint: I'm going to be in a book with some amaaaaaaazing writers (including the hilarious Hannah Mayer of sKIDmarks, whose guest post about asshole goats and injured vaginas was a huge hit around these parts)! And you're going to want to buy it, because the proceeds go to benefit a fantastic cause. Are you curious yet?
Okay. I think that's all the things, although I will inevitably remember ten more once I hit "publish."
Happy Friday, y'all!
