catching up and giving away

The visit with my mom was very nice. She’s definitely stronger and has put on eight pounds in the last six weeks or so. She lost so much weight over the past several months that we cheer when she gains weight. We had a very nice time and made it to the Dairy Queen (ahem) more than once so it’s possible I put on eight pounds much faster than she did.

We saw lots of her friends and some of our relatives. I spent part of the weekend responding to “Mary Ann,” which always takes a second to realize it's directed toward me. It’s my real name but after I was four years old only my father and a handful of relatives called me that.

Hey there, I have a giveaway! I’m a big fan of Darling Mummy. Do you wear those tees? If not, you should…they’re so comfy and cute. I got my first one as a gift and immediately went back for more. Anyway, I was on the site looking for a new tee and noticed that the MOOD SWING tee is being retired. So...I exchanged emails with the founder and mentioned the name of my blog and she gave me a tee to give away! Don’t you love nice people?

The tee is black, 100% soft and snuggly cotton. Because this tee is being retired there are limited sizes left. I have an XL to give away. No rules (it is summer, after all)...just leave a comment here and IF you feel like it follow me. Pass it on to others...really, the tees are scrumpdillyicious (ah, the DQ, again!). The winner will be randomly selected on July 6. My camera is a bit funky at the moment so I'm using the image below to show the tee. It's a little fuzzy but you get the idea...

Okay, now I'm off to catch up on all the things I missed while I was gone.


  1. That's a very cute tee!
    Awesome that she gave you one to give away! I wish I could find someone to give me something. Just for me, though. :)

  2. ooh id love a tee.

    (and glad your mom is dong better>)

  3. Oh that shirt makes me smile.

    Glad you had a good time with your mom. There are certain people in my life who still call me "Chrissie". I cringe a little...

  4. I'm so glad you had a good visit.

    What a cute tee!

  5. I'm glad you had a good time and are home safe.

    I'd love to have that fab T!

  6. Very cute T-shirt! Free is always the best kind.

    Thanks for stopping by my Blog :)

  7. That t-shirt is so cute! Perfect for your blog!

  8. I love that you have so many loyal fans. And that you got to spend quality time with your dear Mom and the Queen of Dairy. I have been trying to make homemade blizzards of sorts but never the same.

    I am now hooked on your blog, missy. And throw my hat into the Mood Swing tshirt give away. As I am now in 3rd trimester, I think it wuld serve as fair warning to those around me.

  9. Cute tee! I would follow you, but I haven't actually figure out what that's all about. Should I be following people? Should people be following me? I have a blog reader, so I'm not sure how this is different! ACK! so many questions. . . now I'm off to investigate.

  10. I wish we had a DQ where I live. Waaah! So cool that they had a T-shirt with your theme! :)

  11. I've never heard of Darling Mummy before. I MUST have the Mommy needs a margarita shirt! Thanks for sharing!
