Dang...this is my 1000th post!

I've been so busy with the Christmas card photo rush and general baby duty these past few months that I haven't been as present on the blog as I would like, something I hope to rectify next year. In honor of this auspicious event, I'm having a little contest. Leave me a comment telling me why you need a $25 gift card to Target, and the funniest, weirdest, whatever fits my mood best at the moment wins!

*edited to say that I will close comments at 8PM CST tonight, so keep em coming!


  1. because last friday night i went to my office christmas party in a pair of too small shoes. i purchased them earlier from modcloth even though they didn't have them in my size but they were so cute i felt like i'd just have to suck it up and live with the pain - so i did. and ... ended up, after our car got locked in the garage overnight, doing a barefoot walk of shame on saturday morning across downtown DC. because i had no other shoes and my swollen feet absolutely refused, refused to stuff themselves back in. Without a doubt those ridiculously adorable peacock feather themed shoes with the turquoise kitten heel is the reason that my toes still feel fractured today (Monday) -- needless to say ... mama needs a new pair of shoes.

  2. Congrats on 1000 posts! I will just keep it real- a kid-free trip to Target is *almost* as satisfying as a bottle of wine, & a $25 gift card means I may actually buy myself something instead of just roaming the aisles with glassy eyes and a messy ponytail at 10pm.

  3. Congrats on hitting 1000! Here's the thing: I need a $25 Target gift card because I'm tired of trying to come up with a thoughtful Christmas present for a 16-year-old boy I've never met and know nothing about who joined my family via a marriage this year. How dare he.
    ANNNNNND, we should have drinks! (You and me. Not me and the boy.)

  4. Dammit, my story so closely resembles Ty's that I'll just cede to her. They really are ridiculously adorable ...

  5. Congrats on the 1,000 post! I need the Target Gift card because I'm a junkie and I have do drive about 40 miles to the nearest one because my town won't build one we just have Wal-Mart (boo!)

  6. And the winner is....Ty! Shoot me your address so you can get a gift card toward those new shoes!

    Thanks everybody for playing!

  7. haha! YAY! my feet thank you - i'll make sure to take a picture of them for you :)

    Happy Holidays to you guys in Memphis!
