The Caped Crusader and other news

We recently found out that Kami has some kind of skin allergy.
Our vet wants a lot of money to find out what it is and treat her for it, so instead, I decided to do some research.
Apparently it is very common in lab mixes and people just treat it with benadryl. I asked a vet tech about it and they agreed this is a good idea, so I went with it......only it takes a few days for the medicine to actually kick in.
So, instead of buying Kami an outfit, I tied Jackson's old blanket around her neck to keep her from chewing on herself...
Seriously, after that she played for hours [.........or at least until she got tangled up in it and I had to take it off of her.]

Here she is, about to save the world.

...or atleast a turtle.

In other news...

As soon as I press 'publish post', this will be my 200th blog post!
I am so excited. I know, most of you are probably like 'who cares', but this is a big thing for me.
I've actually stayed committed to something [other than a male] for a really long time!
So, to celebrate I'm having a give away.
We all work hard [or atleast pretend to]
therefore we all need to take the time to pamper ourselves...right?
Well, I'm here to help you out.

Here's what's up for grabs:

Package #1:

A kitkat bar
Limeade bath beads
A mud pac anti-stress mask
A sample of 'Exceptional' perfume WITH a $20 off coupon
and a weekly planner with a shopping list

Package #2:

A kitkat bar
Strawberry Sangria bath beads
A mud pac anti-stress mask
and a weekly planner with a shopping list

Enter to win one of these so you can go home after a long day of work/school/nothing, run a nice hot bath with your yummy smelling bath beads, apply this anti stress mask, and eat some chocolate. What could be better?

For one entry, leave a comment on this post telling which package you'd want to receive if you win.

Extra entries will be accepted:
  • if you are a NEW follower, let me know in a SEPARATE comment than the one above.
  • mention this give away in a blog or tweet [so spread the word!!!], but a link to said tweet/entry must be place in a SEPARATE comment on this post.

Sorry, this give away is limited to US Residents only.

The winner will be announced on Sunday, March 28th, 2010.

Yes. I need this. And I can think of a few other things that would be REALLY helpful at the end of one of my work days. One would be some potato oles. But Matt informs me that you people don't have a Taco Johns down there and that makes me sad for you. You are missing out on a little bowl of awesome. Number two would be a hot guy ready for me after my bath. Hubs doesn't count. I need to tally it, but I think it might be cheaper to hire a boy toy than fund the batteries that are horribly expensive. So short of mailing a boy, you can mail AA batteries. ;)

I'm not entering, but I wanted to say that Kami looks so cute! Congrats on the 200th post!

Mr O said...

200 posts is a big deal.

A superhero dog is an even bigger deal.

I just want some kit kats...

Jenn(ifer) said...

Your dog is too freakin' adorable!

I think Matt would totally rock the facial masks ;-)

Jaime Hungry said...

Cute puppy!! And congrats on keeping up with the blog! I'm really struggling to do that myself! Number 1!

Jeanette said...

200th Post woot woot!

I guess I would like the 1st package. And I'm about to go tweet about this.

Smart Ass Sara said...

I have pimped you properly. Two times in one post. ;)

____j said...

@ Sara - Nope. No Taco John's. I have no idea what Potato Oles are, but I'll take your word for it! I'll see what I can do about the boy toy HA.

@ Matt - Do you want in on the give away? Because if so, I'm going to make it mandatory that IF you win, you have to come to troy to get the package, and let me put the face mask on you...and you have to let me take pics. HILARIOUS.

@ Jennifer - Matt would totally rock the face mask....just ask him about the other girly things he's done.

@ Jeanette - THANKS LADY!

I would love the package without the perfume. I need to de-stress. We all work really really hard and pampering ourselves is important. I like to have a strong margarita and some chocolate :)

Mr O said...

I'll do it for the blogosphere. Sign me up.

Sorry Jaime. I meant to post this yesterday but I gave your giveaway some love here

Smart Ass Sara said...

WHAT? Do you have photographic proof of Matt getting his vag on? Because that needs to be shared with the world. ;)
