Monday suck-day, 25!

Monday, April 20, 2009

I don't know if this is a new trend or what, but again, my Monday has yet to suck? I had a great weekend actually. Christopher came home from work early on Friday morning, surprising us all with an extra day off. We used that as an excuse to spend hours at the bookstore with the kids. Saturday night we went to a going away party, where I consumed entirely too much alcohol on accident (our imported beer was apparently twice as strong) and then came home and devoured a gluten free soy cheese pizza with hubby on the couch in nearly one bite. Yesterday we got all of our weekend chores done early, and despite a hard crash in my blood sugar around 3pm, we had a really relaxing day together. This weekend was so perfect it kind of makes me sick, haha.

But for those of you that didn't have a great weekend, would it cheer you up to win a really cute makeup back from Lemonade Accessories? I know, right? If you're anything like me, you're hanging onto the same old makeup bag that you've had for 10 years. Is yours filled with crumbs from god knows what in the bottom too? I know for a fact that all I've ever put in my makeup bag is makeup, so how there are possibly-living creatures lurking in the deep dark corners and around the zipper, I'm not quite sure. Its scary though. I hardly even use it anymore. Mostly because I keep my makeup in a box up on a shelf for easy access. Usually when I have time to put makeup on, I'm doing it in a hurry, and don't want to be digging around in a bag that could potentially eat me, since by now it may have mutated into something with fangs.

Lucky you, you can throw away your man eating makeup bag, and replace it with this brand new one! (For 20% off of Lemonade merch, use the super secret code "Tia" *giggle* at checkout).

Here's how:
-Go to Lemonade Accessories, and take a look at all of the cute things Megan makes. Pick your favorite item(s) and then come back here and leave us a comment telling us what you liked.
-Contest ends Friday, April 24th (I have an appointment with the allergist that day! Don't let me forget), at midnight. Give or take a little. Actually, its always give. I don't usually pick a winner until Sunday. Strict huh?
-Contest open to US residents only.

Additional Entries:
-Tell us why Mondays do, or do not suck for you (in 20 words or more please). Be specific. This contest was born out of hate for Mondays, so don't hold back.
-Follow this blog. If you already follow, mention your loyalty in a comment. If you're a new follower, introduce yourself!
-Blog about this giveaway on your own blog, complete with pictures and links. Leave a comment letting us know where we can read it.

That's it. Pretty simple, and totally worth your time. Oh, and congratulations to last weeks winner Shanda! Shes waking up this suck-day, the proud new owner of a pair of rockabilly retro red earrings, thanks to NeatnixDesign.

I love Lemonade's stuff and I love her new website. Glad you pointed it out. I own one of her totes and a coin purse and adore them.

My favorite thing I spotted were those wristlets...especially the orange polka-dot one. Cute!

( suck yet, but it's pretty early still)

this particular monday sucks a little because after a week's break at home my baby boy went back to college. i'm glad he has a chance for a good education, but i'll be teary-eyed all day.

Sarah J S April 20, 2009 at 2:49 PM

Mondays suck because they start with the dreaded alarm clock at like 6am.

Rita A. April 20, 2009 at 3:39 PM  

I like the Holly Headband.

Rita A. April 20, 2009 at 3:39 PM  

Mondays do not suck for me because I get more email than over the weekends.

dinwoodie,  April 20, 2009 at 8:01 PM  

Hi! my name is Sarah... first time visitor.. but will def be back! I love the website.

Favorite things:
Bettie Headband
Jessica Pleated Coin Pouch
Jordy Pleated Coin Pouch
Lauren Clip Pouch
Bettie Make-Up Bag
Dandelion Mini-Tote
All the wristlets...

pretty much love EVERYTHING!!

Why do mondays suck? I dont even know where to being. But for anyone who says mondays dont... i'd like to switch lives. On sundays i usually work pretty late at my deadend job and come home, knowing when i wake up in the morning i'm going to be completely exhausted. And you know what I have to look forward to on mondays? Besides the start of a horrible week of school, I have an hour of AP Calc class before school even starts. And usually, I have to wake up at 4:45 am to go to swim practice, then go to Calc, then start my day, then go to crew practice, go home, make dinner for my family, clean my house, do the laundry, feed my dogs... etc.

Jelly Bean Eyeglass Casemondays suck becuase its another lost day of doing work for the unappreciated and lack of sleep and the start of the visitor really proves its a bitch of a monday

Danielle April 20, 2009 at 9:41 PM  

I Love the Aviary Headband the most

lollywood April 20, 2009 at 9:44 PM  

and the reason why mondays suck is because i have class, work, then a meeting... then i have to get groceries... same schedule every monday... but all i want to do is go back to bed. oh and i usually need to do laundry too... its my busy day and at the beginning of the week.. no good!

Monday sucks because the warm weather (finally!!) has brought out the tree pollen and I have been sneezing and sniffling all day. I bought my son a new car seat and discovered that he can escape out of it (good thing I kept the old one!) And last, but certainly not least, my 7 year old daughter decided to comb my hair tonight and rolled the comb up with my hair in it. An hour and a handful of hair later, my husband finally got it out. I think I'm ready to call it a day.

Jean April 21, 2009 at 4:55 AM  

I really like the Jelly Bean Eyeglass Case. I own a bunch of pairs of reading glasses, and could always use cases

Mondays are good for me when it is my week off. I work every other week, out of my home, and every other week, in my home. I love working from home and wish I could do it ALL the time. Maybe some day.

I adore anything with retro images and polka dots OBVIOUSLY!! I love the wristlets and makeup bags! I have given you a shout out on my blog at

Mondays don't just suck, they SUPER-suck! I hate getting up before dawn, leaving my cozy little home, and fighting traffic to get to my sucky place of employment. I never get used to it. I hate you, Monday!

Vivien April 21, 2009 at 12:46 PM  

Normally I am not a big fan of Mondays and getting back to my non-weekend routine. However, I do like getting mail and packages that piled up over the weekend!

Karen April 21, 2009 at 3:22 PM  

I love the jelly bean wristlet! I would love this make-up bag! I so need a new one. Very nice website!
Mondays suck because my house is always a mess from the weekend. I have lots of laundry to do, cleaning, etc! It always takes a few days to back on the regular schedule!

judybrittle April 21, 2009 at 11:22 PM  

I really like the Bettie Coin Pouch. That is really cute! Thank you!

judybrittle April 21, 2009 at 11:23 PM  

I do not mind Monday's. Its usually my day to rest after working hard all weekend.

calabaza April 22, 2009 at 8:23 AM  

I like the Emma wristlet. It looks like a perfect size.

mogrill April 22, 2009 at 12:57 PM  

I LOVE the Dandelion Mini Tote. Thanks for the chance.

Maggie April 22, 2009 at 2:17 PM  

My favorite from Lemonade is the Aviary Make Up Bag.

Mondays do not suck because House is on. That alone makes Mondays the best day of the week. Mondays also rock because, if you go to school or work, you get to hear all the stories about what happened over the weekend from all the people you like well enough, but not enough to actually see outside of work or school.

I'm Maggie! I'm technically new, but I've been reading you passively for about a month! Hi!!!
