The Weekend Wrap-Up

Welcome to the start of another week (or the end of the last one depending on how you look at it!); I hope that everyone had a happy Easter filled with jelly beans, egg hunts, chocolate bunnies, and renewals and, despite the lingering Winter weather, you're ready to hop into Spring.

I had to work today but it was pretty relaxed for a change and even though I had no Cadbury Mini-Eggs or chocolate bunnies, one of the paramedics on duty brought me an Easter bagel (blueberry with strawberry cream cheese - yum!). When I got home I gave Amanda her Easter basket but because I had waited until the last minute, I'm afraid she didn't get any Mini-Eggs or a chocolate bunny either. In the zoo that was Wal-Mart yesterday I could only find a white chocolate pig (name of Pigglesworth to be exact) so that's what she got. I was going to take a picture to show off on my blog but I'm afraid Amanda ate Pigglesworth's face off before I could get to the camera! Never underestimate the power of a chocolate animal!

In other news, my blog was the recipient of a mini-review over at The Pisstakers, a blog that totes itself as "daily satire at its best". I stumbled upon the blog via Polliwog's Pond when I read her post about winning an entire pound of gummi bears - and a full blog review - through a contest at The Pisstakers. Well, as you might well imagine from my recent M&M posts, I am all about free candy so this week I'm going to strive to win some gummi bears myself. In order to do that, I need as many of you as possible to sign up at MyBlogLog (if you haven't already) and then pop over to The Pisstakers from any of the three links I have conveniently left for you in this paragraph! And if you're one of the last ten bloggers in the sidebar widget when Ed starts blogging next Sunday you'll get a mini-review and a chance to win the gummi bears, too! Who doesn't love a contest? Who doesn't love free candy? Who doesn't love helping a fellow blogger out?

And last but not least for this Sunday evening; I fear that Amanda has become quite obsessed with her favorite band, My Chemical Romance, as she decided that we absolutely, positively had to bake a cake for lead singer Gerard Way's birthday tomorrow. Gerard will never know that we had a very nice fudge swirl cake with chocolate icing and red and white custom-designed decoration to celebrate his 30th birthday but I will be more than happy to scarf some down in his honor! And you never know where a picture may pop up!

Have a great week everyone and don't forget to make a suggestion for the saying on my M&Ms in the sticky post above! And to visit The Pisstakers (one more link in case you missed the first three!).

    Hope your Easter was joyous.

    Ya know, I thought of you when I saw that you can order M&Ms now with your own stuff stamped on them....for your mom on mother's day. LOL ---don't ask me why I thought of you, guess it was your M&M post. Who knows? *shrug*....

    Have a great Monday and a great week.

  3. After reading your post, I realize why this Easter seemed so incomplete and now I'm depressed. I somehow went Easter candyless this year...not one Cadbury egg, chocolate bunny, jelly bean, gummi bear...sob, sob. I've lost my one opportunity to eat yummy calories without the guilt. Oh well...

  8. My mom said she stopped by wal-mart and they had a sign on the door that said they were SOLD OUT of Easter candy! Man, that sounds crazy!! Was there some sort of shortage this year?
    We had more than enough...actually we still do if ya want some. :)

    Hope you have a great week.

  9. Thanks for the mention, it looks like you have helped turn the mybloglog spotlight onto the pisstakers in more ways than one. From the highest power in the MBL land ...The Community Manager at MyBlogLog, Robyn has spotted our interesting angle with the MyBlogLog Sunday feature.

    Thanks and I hope you enjoy your visits.

    That is a great post you did on keywords. Never knew people were so creative with their search ideas - at least not till I started blogging! I daren't mention any examples on here, so maybe I will put a screen shot up on my site this week, Scary minds.
