I've won several giveaways on some sweet people's blogs--three books and a bracelet, to be precise. So I decided that since I am nearing my 30,000th view I wanted to share the love, pass it forward, and nudge some people (OK, probably just two or three of you) out of hiding.
On the recommendation of my new friend Ashley, I recently started the book "My Bangs Look Good & Other Lies I Tell Myself." It is fantastic thus far and seemed like the perfect item to share. The author's basic premise is that the Liar is an expert is getting tired supergirls like us to believe that God isn't quite as good as we thought, and neither are we. Each chapter shows us, with great humor and examples that often hit too close to home, how we fall for his lies and how to combat them.
You know the drill: leave a comment with your name and some way to get in touch with you (I'd recommend an email address).
Better yet, leave a comment telling me about your worst hair mishap--I promise it relates to the book. Here's mine: I hate to throw someone under the bus, but when I was in junior high a certain parental unit decided to frost my long, dark hair in a pull-through cap. Two particular chunks of hair on the crown of my head pulled through a little thicker than the others, leaving me with an unfortunate resemblance to a skunk. I'm sorry I don't have pictures to share.
On Mother's Day, May 9, 2010, I will write all the names on slips of paper and ask a child to draw a name. Probably Vera, unless she's having one of those days. Maybe Emma, since her bangs are always a mess (she has a parental unit who cuts her hair, poor baby). Either way, I'll let you know who gets the book! Unless I forget or something...you can hit the "M" button on my sidebar and email me a reminder.
Thanks, dear readers, for caring about our large and often funny family!
