100 and a Cup of Joe

Hey, I've reached one hundred posts. Unbelieavable how the time flies. Well, in honor of my 100th post, I am going to host a giveaway. Now, I don't create anything on Etsy, I can't decorate anything like the Nester or Kimba, I don't have tons of money like... oh, I don't know. (But if you do have a lot of money and you'd like to share, I'd oblige.)


Anywho, back to this giveaway thingy... Oh, yea, I'm giving away a Starbucks Gift Card and something else, but I don't know what yet. I guess the second thing depends on who wins.


So in order to enter leave a comment telling me what your favorite fashion pick-me-up, decorating, cooking, or parenting trick is. Or sign up to follow this here lil blog.


If you do both you'll get five chances. Am I making this too complicated? Figures...
I'll keep the giveaway until Friday night and announce a winner on Saturday morning.

Oh to many things to share... I love to make my own chicken stock using the bones from the roasted chicken at costco...I just add carrots, onion and celery and let boil for a few hours. SO tasty. Then I freeze it! H

I make all the kids sandwiches for the week on Sunday. I put them in baggies in the fridge, then everyday I just grab one and throw it in their lunch. Huge time saver!

Congratulations! I have you on my google reader and my favorite tip. Since I have 3 kids, I think I have some pretty good tricks up my sleeve. Sometimes it's good for mommy to take a time out too. When things get crazy and I'm about to lose it, I put myself in time out, it calms me down and I can refocus AND it boggles my kids. It confuses them...gotta keep 'em on their toes.

Oooh a prize! My favorite fashion pick is a great pair of jeans. You can dress them up or down & they are way comfortable. As far as a parenting trick, I would say bribery always works :) HA HA :)

So Fun!
Alright, you know I don't cook. However in the Metzger household everything is about choices. The kids make their choices all the time with things. The kicker is that one choice is the one thing I want them to choose and the other is completely what they don't want to do. Brad and I have perfected this skill and it's a keeper. Ex. You can eat your dinner or go to bed, pick one. Luke has chosen to go to bed once. So off he went.
I don't consider myself fashionable, but great earings always get me excited. I wish I had more time to stand around and browse at them. Maybe then would I have more.

I love cooking so it always picks me up. I especially love making cakes and cupcakes. And because I am a cook, I love aprons and that's another of my pick me ups. I go out and buy a fancy cool apron.

Congrats on 100!! My favorite decorating pick me up is to rearrange my accessories. It always makes me feel better and seems to freshen up the room.

Congratulations on your 100th post.

My favorite pick me up is to find one area and make it mine - pick up and put away, light a candle or two, put on background music and curl up with my journal or a good book. Sometimes we just need SPACE...especially as moms.
