Drinking in the New Year over at Ilina’s

January 1, 2010 | 2010,BlogHer,Holidays,Norway

I got to meet Ilina in Chicago last summer. She’s always cooking up something tasty and tempting, and she celebrates 5:00 every Friday with a cocktail. And guess what? She let me kick off the new year with a guest post. Thanks, Ilina! Raising my glass and wishing you a happy New Year!

Merry Grinchmas

December 23, 2008 | Holidays

I’ve got gifts to wrap and food to prepare, but we’re just not ready for Christmas until we’ve seen How the Grinch Stole Christmas! We just watched it … so, bring it on!

Happy and merry to everyone in Whoville, er, Blogland!

Memorial Day

May 26, 2008 | Books,Holidays,Memorial Day

What are you doing today?

I’ve written a guest post about Memorial Day for Mothers of Intentions at PunditMom. It will be posted Wednesday.

In the meantime, I’ll go read eMail Our Military, whose motto is, “Supporting Our Military, One eMail At A Time.”

I’m also planning to extend the deadline for the Final Salute giveaway to coincide with eMail Our Military, which will also be giving away an autographed copy of the book.

Stay tuned.

Update: The book giveaway is up at eMail Our Military. Go check it out!

Fat, Super … Valentine’s Day?

February 5, 2008 | 2008 campaign,Holidays,Weird things

When I picked up my son from school today (with his two sick sisters along for the ride), he showed me this mask he made.

Wait. Is it Super Tuesday or Fat Tuesday?

He said he made it for Valentine’s Day.

Ow. My head hurts.
