winner winner Elmo dinner & some happy.

Sometimes things just show up that make you smile. WWJD’s Christmas card this year is one of those things. In fact I asked her if I could share it with you because, even though you don’t know her maybe it will make you smile too. The real story here is her husband, whom I adore. I mean flat out adore. You know how you love your friend and think about what you would like for them in a partner and then it comes true?? That. In the last three years WWJD had kicked cancers ass before it kicked hers (literally goodbye colon cancer) and is now making Lupus and RA her bitch. Yeah, I said it. Because Janice never met a challenge she didn’t win. Plus she always has the cleanest house in the history of ever. She’s amazing. We used to joke that I needed a What Would Janice Do bracelet because I was such a dumbass when it came, in particular, to men.Hence her blog name WWJD.  I still sometimes think what WOULD Jancie do…and then I do that. It always turns out right. It’s only 100% annoying and helpful when she smiles her her eyes light up all evil genius like and she says “I’m always right!” Because she is.

But I digress. So yeah. This.

I died. Her husband is an outwardly controlled man. He is lovely and friendly and wonderful…but a public goofball? Not so much. Me and Janice? Oh yeah. But Hubs? nope. So when this came in the mail I laughed until I wept and then I promptly hung it up because it just gives me a dose of Holiday Cheer. Also, check out my GORGEOUS Godson. God, I love that kid to the moon and back.


Oh, perhaps you swung by to see who is going to Sesame Place!  Duh duh duh duh!

Sesame Place Furry Christmas GIVEAWAY!

Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street? When I was little I thought it was Stephanie Street. In fact I almost named this blog Stephanie Street, but there is an actual woman named Stephanie Street and she owned the url. THE NERVE! (I also thought the magic words were Open Stephanie but perhaps that’s a matter for Dr. Freud.)

My point is, that besides being the quintessential only child in my early youth, I loved me some Sesame Street. I still do. Especially Grover. There is not enough Grover on the street these days if you ask me, not that anyone did.

So, we took The Boss to Sesame Place for his third birthday waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in July and he said wanted 2 things “I am going to say hello to Ernie and he is going to say hello to me and we will play together” and “I am going to hug Abby Condabby” Both of those things happened.

And now a dream come true:

But then….BUT THEN…

He still talks about it. Whenever anyone asks him how old he is he says three. and I went to sesame place.

So. Who wants to take their kiddo to Sesame Place’s Furry Christmas? I have a family four pack of tickets to give away! Guys they are even open New Years Eve which I think would be totally cool to go to. This giveaway will go till Monday night at midnight so we can do a quick turnaround for Furry Christmas! We will be taking the Boss and his cousin Zuzu to it and I can’t wait to see Zuzu freak out. It’s incredible.

Per usual you can enter just by leaving me a comment telling me who your favorite Sesame Street Muppet is. You know I am Team Grover. (If we are talking Muppet Show then I am wocka wocka. You know what I mean!)

You can get an additional entry by subscribing to my RSS feed! (please do this if you follow me on google friend connect because it’s going on away next month and I am hating that. Not that they asked me. People should really ask me things because I have some great ideas!)

An extra entry for following me.

Leave a separate comment for each one and I will announce the winner bright and early Tuesday morning. Or maybe Monday at 12:01 EST. Cause I am excited.



**My family was provided tickets to Sesame Place as part of the Sesame Place Ambassador program, which saved me a boatload of money because we were going to take him there before they asked me. Total win for me! All the opinions expressed are mine and mine alone.  The only negative part of our experience is that The Boss is terrified of every member of Mr. Noodle’s family, including Mr. Noodle’s nephew Mr. Noodle in Elmo’s World Live. But really that’s my fault for taking him in there…I shoulda known. No worries, he forgot all about it by the time we got to Elmo Rocks and only talks about what a blast he had.
