Monday suck-day, 22!

Monday, March 30, 2009

Usually Monday suck-day is up before the sun, but today... oh today has been extra awesome. And by awesome, I mean sucky. Adventurous really. My Mondays never actually "suck". I'm grateful for every day that I have with my family, no matter what mood hovers over it. Maybe I should change Monday suck-day's name. What do you think? Monday awesome-day. Monday used-to-suck-day. Monday only-wishes-it-sucked-day. ...OK that last one didn't even make any sense. Maybe I'll just leave the title alone.

This morning started off with me dishing up a big bowl of allergies for breakfast, yum! I knew that in a few hours I'd be giving 7 viles of blood for special testing, and I wanted to make sure that my body was acting as grumpy as possible, for the best results. Does that make sense? Not only did I have to go give a gallon of the red stuff away, but my 3 month old son had to get a hefty round of vaccines. Tickle shots, we call them. I'll have to post a picture of his cute bugs bunny band aid covered leg tomorrow. Well while Charlie was getting his shots, Eleanore found the mother load of doctor-loves-patient prizes. She wanted a bracelet. No, a ball. No... a bracelet. No wait, a ball! I took the baby and walked away from the situation, letting Dad handle it. She wouldn't be happy no matter which item she picked out anyways. 15 minutes later we ended up in the parking lot with a screaming snot-covered 2 year old refusing to get into the car, throwing a tantrum on the sidewalk, very upset that she had a new bracelet instead of a new ball. Oh please. We dealt with it, and managed to get home. But just a few minutes after getting home, my Sasquatch husband knocked his giant monster-man shoulder into a bathroom shelf and tumbling down it came. Did anything break? No. Wait.... yes. And it had to be a bottle of cologne didn't it? Gah.

So, Monday awesome-day, right?


Man, I'm really excited about this weeks giveaway. When I first saw this shop I fell in love. Angelcake. I want everything that she makes. Everything. Her shop announcement simply says "thanks for visiting. I'm obsessed". Direct and right to the point, my kinda gal!

Oh, what, you want that? I know you do! I do too, but unlike y'all, I can't enter my own giveaway. I'm not fooling anyone though, we all know that I never have the time to play dress up. Wait no, that's a lie. I have the time, I just don't have anywhere to go. The commissary? Lame.

So, enter this weeks giveaway, and win it, and love it!

Le Rules:

-Visit Angelcake's shop. Browse through all of her gorgeous Victorian inspired accessories, and then come back here and leave us a comment telling us what you liked the most, and why.

-For an additional entry, tell us why Mondays suck (or, why Mondays are awesome, har har) in 20 words or more. This is my favorite part of the giveaway actually.

-If you're a follower of my blog, mention that in the comment and you'll get an extra entry. If you're not, then you should be! Click follow. Leave a comment. Ta da!

-If you purchase anything from Angelcake's shop, get an extra 10 entries. Yes, ten.

Giveaway ends this Friday night at Midnight. Any entries posted after that time will not be considered valid. The winner will be announced on next Monday's giveaway, and of course contacted by email (which is why you absolutely must leave us a name and email). By the way, last weeks winner was Meredith.

I like the Emerald City's Waterfall Necklace! I just love the colors in it....

Today sucks because my husband got me sick to the point that I don't know if I can make it to bellydance class tonight...and I really wanna gooooo (can you hear the whine over your computer?).

I'm you know :-)

I love all of your items but my most favorite is the ANTONIA necklace I love this design.

Today sucks because on my day off I had to drive my daughter to my parents house (shes spending spring break with them) its a 2 1/2 hour drive there and then another 2 1/2 hours back I hate that drive

follower or stalker if you want to be dramatic about it

MOMFOREVERANDEVER March 30, 2009 at 5:41 PM  

mondays suck because I need to make sure everyone has clean underwear for the week..hey on weekends I can tell them go commando if they are staying home and just wear sweats or pjs but I cannot tell them that for school. Mondays suck because the alarm clock needs to be back on, and I have to turn on the phone because the kids are out of the house..otherwise I could give a crap less to talk to most people. Mondays suck because the mailman brings bills andmondays suck becuiase I am expected to work to pay the bills . Mondays suck because we go back into a routine and there is less play and fun, and mondays turn into day of seriousness and school..mondays suck I realize its a long way till friday afternoon.

The favorite bead and rose necklace is beautiful!

ABCDErica March 30, 2009 at 6:57 PM  

Don't know if I need to seperate with each additional entry but I'm gonna have a say on why this particular Monday sucks and is awesome. WHOA!

Well, it's awesome because last week I was sick practically the whole week and today my sick germs have gone adrift. Unfortunately, it has landed on my mother and now she's the sick one! I had to take care of her all day yesterday and because of her cold, she missed work. Boo hoo :(

Tanna March 30, 2009 at 7:59 PM  

I'd love to have all the skull fashions for my daughter, but I really like the colors in the Best Colors Hair bow.

Tanna March 30, 2009 at 7:59 PM  

Monday, or especially today, sucks because I've been very menopausal today, LOL. Dropping everything, everything is getting on my nerves.....I need to win something!!!

Shannon March 30, 2009 at 9:13 PM  

I like the rock candy hair clip.

Today was horrible as my manager said something not nice to me almost as soon as I walked into work. It turned out to be a misunderstanding but didn't make the day go well. Also, I have a horrible cold and can barely talk.

denyse March 30, 2009 at 10:14 PM  

I love the i love skulls denim color necklace because we love skulls.

I like the golden berry blue necklace because, as simple of an answer this is, blue and purple are very high on my list of favorite colors.


Suzanne March 31, 2009 at 1:00 AM  

I love the bead waterfall necklace OOAK vintage cab. I love the contrast of the black, white, and blue beads.

Suzanne March 31, 2009 at 1:01 AM  

Mondays totally suck because that's when I have to go back to work and since I'm a social worker, all hell has usually broken loose over the weekend. Therefore, Mondays are most definitely clean up everyone's crap time!

Suzanne March 31, 2009 at 1:02 AM  

I follow your blog!

Meredith March 31, 2009 at 1:51 AM  

I love the pink ice chandelier --a most sparkly necklace (and her description of it!) Lol. It reminds me of Strawberry Shortcake, my animated hero.

Meredith March 31, 2009 at 1:51 AM  

Mondays suck because this Monday I woke up with severe Endometriosis pain and then a couple hours later a migraine followed. What the hay?! Have a great day!

Meredith March 31, 2009 at 1:52 AM

I like Mondays because it's a fresh start to a new week. It's the first day of the rest of your life.

Thanks for a great giveaway.

Mondays suck because it is the end of the weekend and my hubby has to go back to work....WAH!!

Shanda April 1, 2009 at 4:19 PM  

My favorite is the Pink Crystal Romantic Waterfall necklace!

NessaGurl April 2, 2009 at 7:05 AM  

I like the
mary's little lamb lacy hair bow the best because its cute and simple. I dont' usually wear hair bows... but I would wear this. All the stuff in the store is lovely.

Mondays actually don't suck for me because it is the day that my oldest Sophia goes to Gramma's house for the day and a sleep over... so I have the day to myself with Charlotte. A little one on one time with my new baby girl and a break for me from my crazy toddler. Although by Tuesday evening when Sophia comes home... I miss her terribly!!

I love the day of the PINK dead hair bow. It's really different and I love the color pink and skulls. Awesome site!

kylie8cake April 2, 2009 at 11:53 AM  

Mondays suck because it's the first day back to work and school for all of us which means more stress :( It's hard to recover from the weekends. Plus nothing good ever comes on tv Monday nights, there aren't ever any parties on Monday nights and well...they are usually blah.
