not me! monday

it's a happy monday....

make sure you visit mckmama's blog to play along and to read what everyone else has not been doing! but for now, here's what's not going on with me!

i certainly did not take advantage of the 70 degree days we had this week. i did not walk with the kids to the park in hopes of taking some great pictures. and, thinking ahead, i did not check the camera battery and change it before we went. then i did not walk 15 minutes to the park, get ready to take some pictures, and notice that there was no memory card in the camera. nope, not me! if i'm smart enough to check the battery i'm definitely smart enough to check that there's a memory card!!

while driving in the car with the kids, samantha did not notice some litter on the street, then proceed with this lecture while sounding entirely devastated, "oh no mom! someone littered!!! and this is the only world we have, mom!! we need to keep it clean for our kids... yep, it's our only world..." nope. my 5-year-old is not a green freak!

if anyone saw me at church on saturday, i was not dropping off samantha for sparks-o-rama practice which i found out doesn't start until NEXT saturday. nope, definitely not me. i'm way too detail oriented to skim over the flyer that had the times and dates!

i absolutely did not clean up drying paint on my floor at 11pm last night. my son did not tip over a paint bucket which did not create a lake of paint on our floor. and i did not blog about it before cleaning it up.


....last but not least.

today is not my birthday, so instead of giving myself a present, i am not gonna give you the chance to win one!

here's what you do: leave me a comment with your guess of what time i was born. whoever is the closest gets this lovely mary kay prize consisting of an eye essentials set, oil-free eye makeup remover, age fighting eye cream, and soothing eye gel!

sorry family, you can't play on this one!

and this is also not my 100th post, so i'm not gonna have a double contest!

to win a dvd of the new movie fireproof, you can get one entry for following my blog, one entry for following me on twitter, and one entry for leaving me another comment about your favorite thing about my blog. (you automatically get an entry if you follow my blog or twitter.)

family, you can play along on this one!

make sure i have a way to contact you if you win. and sorry, i can only ship to the 48 contiguous states! the contests will end when i post the winners on friday, february 13th!

happy monday!!!

Becky said...

do I get an extra contest entry for being the 1st one to leave a comment?haha! My favorite thing about your blog is the pics of the kids... being that you're far away, I don't see them that I enjoy seeing what they are doing throughout the week.... even if they are in a picture with a shopping cart....

Happy Birthday! I'm not good at guessing. How specific do you have to be?! LOL! I was born at 12:45pm, so I'll go with that. Hope you have a great day!

Ahh, cute list, I am a green freak too. And the camera thing? My MIL once did that at a wedding she was shooting!
I think you were born at 8:52 a.m. Mostly cause that is when I was born. Happy birthday!!!

Keyona said...

Great post! Happy Birthday! My guess is 2:25am.

Ashley said...

I love the not me about samantha commenting on the litter... that is too cute!

Happy Birthday!

A day in the Life... said...

Hmm.. Well I am going to guess 9:05am. :)

My favorite thing about your blog is all the funny Samantha stories and I should automatically win the DVD because I have never seen Fireproof!

Happy birthday! I think you were born at 10:43 a.m.

And what I love about your blog is getting to know you after "knowing" you for all these years at church! :)

my favorite thing besides kid pics b/c that is a given favorite (they are so cute!) is just reading about what is going on in your life, whether that is through "not me monday" or "tuesday tips" - =)
