Follow Friday – Terrarium Giveaway

15 Jul

In honor of yesterday’s Vintage Terrarium Book Giveaway post, today’s Follow Friday theme is terrariums. There’s still plenty of time to enter to win a vintage copy of a how-to terrarium book, and it’s open world-wide, not just to residents of the US.

Isobel and I officially finished this round of swimming lessons this week, and I’m a bit relieved. It was a Mommy & Me class and I swear I came home more exhausted than she did every day! She got a report card and a popsicle for completing the course and we are officially cleared to move into the Preschool Class next year.

What is Follow Friday? It’s a Twitter meme that I have taken a couple steps further.  Learn more about it in my FAQ. See my nomination for a Shorty Award for Follow Friday here. You can read more Follow Friday goodness here.

    Where did you get those little (ceramic?) mushrooms? WHERE.

    I feel like I should tell you that every Friday I obsessively check to see if your Follow Friday post is up yet and before I read through all the hysterical tweets, I scroll through to see if I am featured in some sort of pathetic gauge of my self-worth every week. Thank God I made it this week, otherwise my self esteem would be crushed and I’d have to spend the weekend making bad decisions and cavorting with inappropriate men. And while that would be a fine weekend normally, I am determined to devote this weekend to my quest of perfecting alcoholic banana pudding as I mentioned in my last blog post. So, by finding me funny, you totally saved alcoholic banana pudding – probably.

    • Cookbook July 15, 2011 at 8:33 am #

      I do the same thing. Nothing compares to the time I got Tweet of the Week!

    • LittleBig July 15, 2011 at 4:01 pm #

      I am so glad I saved banana pudding from turning to a life of alcoholism. OR DID I?

    Whenever I make it into the follow friday post, I feel like a celebrity.
