Number 4


In horse racing it's win, place, show. In beauty pageants, it's 2nd runner up, 1st runner up, and The Title of Miss So-n-So. Seems like 4th place never gets a prize. Well guess what! Today's the day for #4. Really. Random.org told me so.

UrbanDesign made the 4th comment on my What's Buggin' You? post. So, what was buggin' her? Insurance sales people, and the fact that the DH is doing a little better on the diet than she is. And I'll tell you what...both of those things would seriously bug me too. What doesn't bug me is her photography. Check out her Etsy Shop. She's got some amazing stuff -- no bugs, but lots and lots of beautiful botanicals and landscapes. Really beautiful work.

I had so much fun with this post. I think I'm going to make it an annual thing. Actually when I read through the list of complaints, there was only one on there I couldn't relate to at all...but that's only because I don't have a sister. I asked The Boy and he confirmed it with rolling eyes and clenched fists, "Oh yeah, Mommy, it's really annoyting (his word) when a sister wont leave you alone." And to those of you who were concerned with sounding "bitter".... Hey, embrace the bitter. Bitter is good. OK, bitter is bitter, but we all need to vent every now and then, right? Right!

Two things you don't have to feel bitter about today: bugs that bite - because you can take care of that problem with my lovely little product, and not winning my give away -- because I've got a special deal for ya. I'm offering the 2oz. bottle of Bzzz Off! insect repellent for $4 to anyone who left a comment on the What's Buggin' You? post.

And because I had so much fun with this, I'm extending the offer to anyone who leaves a comment on this post, but there's a catch. To qualify for the offer you have to follow the links to one or more of the Etsy shops I used to illustrate this blog entry, visit the shop or blog of someone who left a comment in the What's Buggin' You? post, or visit my shop (WTH! Promotion's what it's all about, right?). Then come back here and leave a comment about your favorite item or post. Hey, we spent the 1st half of the week complaining, right? Let's finish the week spreading some love (and repairing our Karma). I've made it easy for you. Here's a link list:
