Mother of the Year & Giveaway Winner!


The winner of a necklace of your choice from Anne Franklin Designs is #71 MCM Mama! Congrats. Shoot me an email at and I’ll tell you how to claim your prize! Anne of AFD wanted me to pass on to you how much she has appreciated your views of her site and “likes” on Facebook. Keep her awesome products in mind for the holidays! She sent me a necklace and I love it.


In other news, for Sam’s birthday he wanted to go paint balling.

I seriously should get some sort of prize for this:


Feel free to comment on the elephant in the room – i.e., that lumpy muscle in my arm. Want a muscle like that? Use crutches. I may not be able to run for shit when this is all over, but I’ll have some crazy arm candy.

Believe me, I tried to not wear the mask, but if you even lifted it an inch off your face you had to do ten pushups. No joke. Those rednecks don’t mess around.

Hanging with the 13 year olds,


PS: Don’t forget my $25 Subway Gift Card Giveaway.


  1. LOL! Hilarious picture of you in the mask. You are quite the trooper - paintballing on crutches!

    You win the "best arms" award at the paintball park. And I bet you were the only mom there on crutches!

    Happy Halloween to you and your family :)

  2. Ha ha....awesome! I can't believe you got out there on your crutches!! I used to go paint balling in college and it was a blast!

  3. laughed a LOT at this! You DO deserve some sort of prize for this.

    Also, I failed to mention before that I wanted to thank you. When I was doing marathon #2 a few weeks ago and I started to get tired around mile 23, I thought of you asking "so WHAT if you're tired?" It really helped get me through!

  4. elephant?? I was thinking "damn! nice arms"
    rock the (paintball) gun show!! WOOOO HOOOOO

  5. So funny, as soon as I saw the picture I was in total arm envy, didn't even notice the mask....those are some killer arms...see, there is your 'silver lining' to this whole crutches thing!!

  6. I can't seem to run for shit ,even without crutches- you are still my hero.

  7. can you adopt me? please? i know you're not old enough to be my mother (or at least i don't think you are...maybe you are. who knows) but seriously: i'm not that needy of a kid ;)

  8. omg so fun! what a cool momma you are!

  9. I'd run away scared if I saw you, your muscle arms and that mask in person!:) You are a trooper and a very nice Mom, no doubt!

  10. Great birthday present! I bet everyone enjoyed it. Did they give you a gun?

  11. So the only "guns" at the paintball game were yours.

  12. Holy crap you are jacked! That is an awesome photo. I hope you are healing well.

  13. What an awesome mom. But we already knew that. And seriously, the abs and now the arms.

  14. Mmmmmmmmmm, arm candy! Where are my crutches?????

  15. i think the mask is a good look for you. wait, that came out wrong.

  16. Is it bad that I can't get a picture of you getting pelted with paintballs out of my head? yeah, I probably should have left that comment to myself......
