Whatever Friday

It’s Friiiiiiiiiday!

Want to know everything I did? I figured as much…since you’re here and all. 😉

1. Okay. Let’s talk Real Housewives of New Jersey. Total set-up, methinks. Although, I really don’t know how I felt about Teresa being involved. I think she knew about it and did nothing to stop it, but I don’t think it was her idea. Thoughts? Oh, and is it just me, or does knowing all this took place before the last reunion make you feel weird? Like the last reunion was the reunion for this show? And it said they hadn’t seen each other since – are they making a new season???? So. Many. Questions. I can’t wait to watch the reunion!

2. Oh, you want to see what food I made? Okay.

I made crack balls.

I made the BEST. CAKE. EVER.

And Jordan made you some bars of goodness.


Oh, and I also posted about how my husband met and fell in loooooooove over on Friday Night Date Night, in case you like sap.

3. I am also running a giveaway for a year supply of Trident! Chew, chew, chew your way over and enter. You still have a few hours left!

4. Oh, and then there is a giveaway for My Memories, courtesy of Online BlogCon. Go enter that too!

5. We’re full in the middle of season premiere week. My favorite week of the year! Let’s talk Hawaii 5-0. Did anyone watch? Please agree with me that the helicopter-claw-ocean scene was totally unbelievable, even to me. And I believe in vampires!

6. I had happy hour with Hayley. I’m so glad we found each other!

8. Online BlogCon registration is in full swing. We have another awesome sponsor doing a sweet giveaway.

Vintage Printage is a supercool Etsy shop that makes personalized iPhone cases (soooo cute) AND she does blog design too. They have generously donated 3  amazing prizes to 3 conference goers: a “big shabang” blog design (worth $100!) and two $25 gift certificates for her shop! Be sure to visit Vintage Printage and see all there is to offer. I wish I could win!

I don’t know about you, but I think that iPhone cases need to be like purses: you have one for every mood and occasion. Because I have several that I want.

9. Have a great weekend!!!


Dorothy 🙂

  1. man I should not have read your story, now I am all “aw, how sweet” and sort of sniffly too, and I am at work! Bad girl, just the sugar next time!!!!!

  2. I love your Friday Ramblings! Thanks for including me in your roundup!!! Those crack balls are haunting me….

  3. I do always want to hear what you have been up to for the week. Although I am slightly jealous that you get to hang with Hayley on a regular basis…not jealous in a bad way…just jealous because I want to come too:-) Moving on…love the pumpkin and apple round up. Thank you for including me! Hugs!!!

  4. Thanks for the feature, girlfran! I’m glad we found each other too–yay for happy hour!!

  5. I cannot WAIT for the RHONJ Reunion!! Totally makes my Sunday night!

    Thanks for the feature:)

  6. You put my cake in your line up! Awwww…that makes me “heart” you even more! Thanks!


  7. I love reading your Friday posts! And I’m with Jocelyn…totally bummed that I can’t tag along with you and Hayley!

  8. All the sweets look great. I will be making one or more of them this weekend.

    Regarding RHONJ – Tre isn’t the sharpest tack in the box but I almost feel sorry for her over this. If the RHONJ would just watch the show like we do, they would see that Tre isn’t the bad girl (in this fiasco anyway) My money is on Kim D setting the whole thing up.

  9. Thanks for including me in your round-up! I hope you have a fantastic weekend! 🙂

  10. Ohhhhh, all those desserts. Now I’m hungry. As if I don’t ingest enough sugar.

    Have a relaxing (hot/humid) weekend!

  11. I wish I could sample all those pumpkin and apple treats RIGHT NOW!
