Yeah! It's a Party in the USA!


I'm in a Slump

With apologies to Mr. Fairway, we've snagged his 1st Birthday Shot for today's festivities. But before I let you know the particulars of today's 2nd Blogoversary Throwdown, I have an announcement to make.

The winner of yesterday's $50 Target Gift Card is~drumroll, please~Shell, from Things I Can't Say! Be a dear, Shell, and send me your contact info, so I can get your party favor in the mail, OK?

Rolling right along...Offering even more bling to my bloggy readers today. In honor of 2 years in the blogosphere (come tomorrow, darlings), I've got yet another $50 Target Gift Card for you! Here's what you have to do to win:

Take a gander at this Superior Snap. Conjure a caption for said snap & tippy-type it, real quick-like, in the comments section of this post. To get an extra entry, follow Ella Numera Dos' fab fotoblog, MOO. And make sure y'all leave the chica a comment, too, hear? Or, if you're not the caption type, just leave me a comment, OK?

That's the way we play our weekly Silly Sunday Sweepstakes, Scribe Fans! Contest runs until 11:59 p.m., Monday, March 1, which is Your Humble Scribe's actual blogoversary. And tune in tomorrow, y'all...I'll have more goodies in store!

What any one year old would ask for as a last meal. A bear of a cake. As for the candle, strange torture devised by older brother (he must wait for it to burn down before digging in).

quilly said...

I guess ma really meant it when she told dad my 1st birthday would be a real high light.

Dazed by all the flashes the boy has no idea of the delight in front of him!

As he had yet to hit the age of complete immaturity, all phallic jokes whizzed over Johnny's head on his special day.

P.S. Please tell me your blog title is not in reference to Miley Cyrus. And if you don't know what I'm talking about, please tell me I did not just recognize a Miley Cyrus reference.

"Seriously, dude? If these 4th generation hand-me-down shoes aren't embarrassing (and unfriggin'comfortable enough), you actually spent the time to... and, are you kidding me... frost ugly rhinoceroses on my cake? You are making me look like such a pansy, and I'm not even 2 yet! Throw me a bone, would yah?"
