Fawk You Friday!

BWS tips button


Fawk you...

The newspaper delivery person.  My newspaper doesn't go on the front lawn as far from the front door as possible! On the front porch is nice, even in the driveway would be acceptable!

Target! It's not even Halloween and the Christmas stuff is already taking over!

The asshat who works with Daddy! Just because you hit the realization that you need to grow the fuck up and in turn stopped drinking all together which in turn makes you act like the world is up your ass! Your pissiness is pissing of Daddy who has been coming home in a shitty mood because of it.

My friends boss! How the fuck can you say he can't bring his personal phone into work and if he does he will be sent home without pay.  Everyone else brings their phones in. Double standard a little!

Fawk you Friday

Just one big one today!

Fawk you to the payroll dept. at work! Because of your fuck up direct deposit didn't get deposited, which left me short on money, which meant I ended up getting hit with 4, count them 4, fucking overdraft charges. And what is your response when I say something to you - "To bad". Seriously my head almost popped off I was so pissed! I guess Monday I get to go over your head to the big boss. I am not going to be charged over $100 because of your fuck up!

Like a deer in head lights!

Last night I was caught like a deer in head lights by damn reality TV! It drew me in so I couldn't look away and it made me watch episode after episode. And damn it it wasn't even a fist pumping good time type train wreck! It was that new flippin Sister Wives show! I was watching Say Yes to the Dress while sewing last night and next thing I know this twisted show was on and I couldn't look away! So twisted and bizarre to me. It was like watching firefighters pulling bodies out of wreckage, you know you shouldn't look but you just can't stop!

I seriously don't understand how these people find this normal, it just seems so odd. And the fact that their house was built by another polygamist with separate "houses" for each wife under one roof just blew my mind.  Then they go and bring another wife and her kids into their "family".  Those poor kids going from a mom and a day to being thrown into that situation and now having 3 other "moms" a new dad and 12 "brothers and sisters". Wow. Just wow!

Pumpkin Patch

Well it is that time of year - HALLOWEEN!!!!!
I love love love Halloween! Such a fun "holiday"! (No I don't consider Halloween it self a holiday. I consider Samhain and All Saints' Day holidays, but not Halloween. Halloween is a fun event that happens to correspond with those holidays. Ok I need to stop now so I don't get into the whole made up holiday debate right now since this is supposed to be a fun post.)
 
Anyway, just like any good family we made our annual pilgrimage to the pumpkin patch and apple orchard!
We had a blast! I was a lot of fun watching sweet potato run around trying to pick up all the different pumpkins. Plus he had fun helping us pick apples.  I was a little disappointed about the apple crop.  They only had Red Delicious and Empire apples left to pick. I guess in the spring we had a very late frost (around Mother's Day is was told) that killed almost 65% of their crop.  That is a ton of loss! But we got to go pick some apples (luckily - since I was told that was going to be the last day that the orchard was going to be open to the public!)

Another CSN Review!!! Yay!

Yay!!! I was contacted again to do another review for CSN Stores since I am a "Preferred Blogger".
How cool is that!

CSN Stores is one of if not the best site for online shopping.  Their site has everything for dining tables, to baby and kid furniture, to shoes for the family, and even kitchen sinks!
I don't know where else you would be able to find that much variety in one place!

I'm not sure what I am going to get to review this time but I think this time I'm going to let my husband pick something out.

Wholesale Costume Club Review!!!

Wholesale Costume Club is an innovative new concept in costume shopping. They are the only costume website on the internet that lets you purchase Halloween costumes at wholesale club member or non-member prices that are below the lowest retail prices you'll find on any online costume store!


WholesaleCostumeClub.com was founded to give consumers the best possible selection at the lowest prices available on the internet. They have the newest and best designs from the most popular costume manufacturers in the industry. These are the same costumes you'll find at mass retail stores and online Halloween costume shops except for one major difference: WHOLESALE COSTUME PRICES!!!

When you think of wholesale clubs you think of places that require you to buy items in bulk or that require a minimum order amount. You may also think about those high annual membership fees. This is NOT the case at Wholesale Costume Club. You don't even need to be a member, although for a very low $5 fee you can become a member and save even more on costumes.

Membership has a clear advantage even if you only purchase one or two costumes a year. However, the more you buy the more you save. So, if you have a large family this is the place to shop for Halloween costumes! Also, if you are from a school or other type of organization, this is the best way to buy costumes and stay within a tight budget.

I decided to check out the toddler Halloween costumes for my sweet potato. There is a bunch of adorable costumes to pick from.
 

Or if I had a little girl I wouldn't be able to  pass up:











Soo Cute!

But I decided that since both me and daddy were going to be Star Wars characters that little guy should be too! I picked a Yoda costume for him!!It was to cute to pass up!!












See! Cute!
And when we got it I was not disappointed!!

















Love it!!!! And sweet potato seemed to like it too! We'll at least he didn't try to rip it off! It is very cute and is great quality!

I received the above product from Wholesale Costume Club for reviewing purposes, no other compensation was given and all opinions expressed are my own.

Yo Gabba Gabba Live!

I took my little hellion sweet potato to see Yo Gabba Gabba Live! on Friday afternoon and I survived we had a blast.



Sweet potato had so much fun! Especially after I bought him a rip-off cool flashing light stick, since all the kids around us had one and you know I can't be that loser mom and not get one too.







He loved Biz's Beat of the day with Biz Markie!



He even got a complement form the crazy nice mommy two rows back.  He was keeping up the beat box right along with Biz when she decided to yell out "That little white boy gots rhythm!". Haha!

He had a blast seeing his favorite characters in person.






Well he had fun I was left scratching my head on a few things. For our Dancey Dance special guest we had Leslie Hall - The Midwest Diva? Who? Seriously? Never heard of her.

???


And for the "Super Music Friend Show" the guest was Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. Again who???

Seriously Detroit is a big city and so well know for its music they couldn't find someone better, maybe a bit well known to guest star. That was a bit stupid unfair of a let down for the parents.

Overall after I took a painkiller for my headache we had a blast. Sweet potato had fun and isn't that all that really matters after-all?!?!?!

Fawk you to the stupid jealous bitches at work! Just because I'm younger, more successful, much prettier, and have an awesome family doesn't give you the fuckin right to go around bad mouthing me. I will never bring my son in to see you again to see you on my days off. No I'm not that "well off" that it doesn't matter how much or little I work, we just made certain choices so I didn't have to work 5 days a week and could stay home with my little guy ONE day a week! So you ladies need to shut the fuck up about shit you don't know anything about!

Fawk you to my stupid newspaper delivery paper!  Delivering my paper 2 out of 3 days is not cool! I need my flyers!

Fawk you to my neighbor and your stupid dog! Seriously if you need to let the dog out at 2am on a work day watch her and don't let her run around your yard barking for almost a fucking hour! You're lucky I didn't take matters into my own hands to shut her up.

Fawk you to my hurt wrist! Another fucking month is this brace sucks big hair balls!

Clearing up so Misinformation

I'm sure most of you have read about a particular family in need. It's been posted on my blog so many and so many others. The amount of compassion that has poured out has been overwhelming to say the least. However, it has been brought to the blogsphere attention that some of the details may have been misconstrued. Ashlee explains it in depth HERE, if you care to read it. I just wanted to pass this on because I don't want to misrepresent in any way, shape, or form.

CSN Stores - Down Duvet Review

I was contacted recently to do another awesome review for CSN Stores since I am a "Preferred Blogger". How cool is that!

CSN Stores is one of if not the best site for online shopping.  Their site has everything for dining tables, to baby and kid furniture, to shoes for the family, and even kitchen sinks! I don't know where else you would be able to find that much variety in one place!

I absolutely love shopping at CSN Stores! I can spend hours just searching the sites for one awesome thing after another.

For this review I decide to get a new down duvet, actually my cats decided for me when I found that one of them had torn a hole in my old one and were eating/playing with the feathers. I guess that's what I get for storing it in a place they can get to and not in anything. Stupid me.

I ordered the Highland Feather Cordoba White Down Duvet.

Let me just say really quick that this thing is the shit!

As always the ordering process on CSN's website was a breeze.  I was originally a bit disappointed in the shipping going to take almost 2 weeks but once I got it I realized that it shipped from Canada and had to go through customs, a bit more understandable. But damn I live 25 minutes from the Detroit / Windsor boarder and would have been able to pick it up over there in a lot quicker time then it took to get to me. Not their fault just those freakin customs agents hold up so much stuff! (Sorry partial vent from my job and having to ship things to Canada).

But anyway back on topic - my new duvet!


Can I just say this thing arrived just in time - we are having a major cold snap here in southeast Michigan, like going down to the high 30s at night - brrrr.  So I ripped that bad boy open and threw it right on the bed for the night!




I was so nice and warm that night, it was soooo soooo nice! I really like the actual material the duvet is made out of. It's very soft and not shinny like some duvets I've seen.  If it wasn't for my 2 cats and the runny nose monster I call my son, I might actually consider leaving it without a duvet cover. But alas I can't. Oh well.

I am very happy with my new duvet and CSN Stores in general!

Thank you CSN Stores for the opportunity to review the Highland Feather Cordoba White Down Duvet for you. I look forward to doing more review with you in the future.

Disclosure: I received the product mentioned above in exchange for this review, Thanks to CSN Stores! No monetary compensation was received by me. This is my completely honest opinion above and may differ from yours.

Please take a moment

I just read this on one of my girls blogs - Mama Still Wear Gucci - and had to repost it. This is absolutely heart breaking. Please take a moment to read this and help if you can.

Copied From Mama Still Wears Gucci:

Oh, my Gucci babies, I've been staring at this blank screen for almost an hour trying to figure out where to start.  I don't know how to fix this; I can't fix this and I don't know how to deal with something I can't fix.

I am devastated.

I hate being helpless.  I hate seeing my loved ones hurting and struggling and being powerless to take the pain away.  I can't fix this.  I can't fix cancer.  I can't heal it.  But I can help with the struggles this family faces.  And so can you.

I've known Renee a few years.  Though I've moved out of state and we haven't seen each other in quite sometime, I just love her.  She is sweet and loyal and smart and talented and strong.  She is a giver, a fixer, a helper.  Her heart is as beautiful as her face.  She loves fiercely, she works without ceasing, and she sacrifices without complaint.

And her husband has been diagnosed with a very aggressive cancer.  He was the sole breadwinner and is now too sick to work.  We all know the state of the economy.  We all know how difficult it is to find work and to complicate things for Renee, willing as she is to do whatever she must to keep her family afloat while her husband fights for his life, she homeschools her three children, one of whom is autistic.  She's been a homemaker for so many years and when employers have the luxury of choice, as they do now, they are not interested in a woman who's been out of the workforce so long.

They have lost their house.  They are currently living in an RV in the parking lot of the hospital where her husband is being treated.  Because they have no running water, Renee and her children are going to Sassy's house, which is thankfully close by, week after week to fill buckets and jugs with fresh water.  The children are growing rapidly out of their clothes, and the clothes they do have are becoming worn with use.

Right now the hospital is generously allowing them to keep their RV in the parking lot and use their electricity, but this is a temporary solution to what is rapidly becoming a permanent problem.  And winter is coming.  Montana winters are cruel and long.

The amazing thing about Renee is, she remains hopeful.  She finds the good in the midst of this nightmare she faces.  She squares her shoulders and raises her chin in the face of this overwhelming adversity even though the stress of this situation must be almost intolerable.  She is holding her family together, taking care of her husband, teaching her children, and trying to make a home out of a travel trailer parked in a hospital parking lot while stretching six hundred dollars a month to feed and clothe a family of five.


If this was your family, or someone you dearly love... Can you imagine?

I've seen the power bloggers can generate when we band together, let's make it happen.

A week from right now...

I just realized that a week from right now I will be in downtown Detroit at the beautiful Fox Theater with my son and several hundred other toddlers and small children getting ready for Yo Gabba Gabba Live to start! Goodness what have I gotten myself into?!?! J/K maybe

As sick as it sounds I am actually really looking forward to this.  I know my little sweet potato will love it!  He loves the show on TV.  I can't wait to watch him bop around to the music. Plus I'm curious who the special guest will be!  I've heard some other cities have had great guests like The Aquabats, Zac Brown, Drive-By Truckers, Jon Heder, of Napoleon Dynamite fame. I'm hoping we get some one equally as cool. Maybe Eminen? He is from around here and he does have 2 young daughters. Hmm who else, Kid Rock maybe, or even go classic with some Bob Seger. Just some ideas.

I'll let you know if I survive  how it goes and who our awesome Dancey Dance guest is after the show!

Hmm... Ah I know - FUCK YOU skinny blond bitch who tried to ruin my best bitches wedding last weekend! You're fucking lucky I didn't kick your and your loser husbands asses! How the fuck could you think it was ok to have him come in to the reception after being specifically told his ass was not welcome! You're fucking lucky someone else got to you before I did!

Fuck you to my MS.  I just want some god damn energy! This is fucking ridiculous - a fucking extra large coffee and a 5 hours energy shot and I'm still ready to fall asleep.  I got shit to do, I can't be napping consistently!

Fawk you to this headache I've had for the last 4 days! I'm sure you're a lovely side effect of my MS! So again Fuck you MS!
