A Valentine's Giveaway and My Fav Poem


Although I think that Valentine's Day is a made up holiday, here to make the card and candy makers an extra buck, I do like the idea of a day dedicated to love. So, in honor of this love-filled day. I want to share my favorite love poem of all time, written by none other than Mr. Shakespeare himself...


Shall I compare thee to a summers day?


by William Shakespeare


Shall I compare thee to a summer's day ?

Thou art more lovely and more temperate:

Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,

And summer's lease hath all too short a date:

Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,

And often is his gold complexion dimmed,

And every fair from fair sometime declines,

By chance, or nature’s changing course untrimmed;

But thy eternal summer shall not fade,

Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st,

Nor shall death brag thou wand'rest in his shade,

When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st;

So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,

So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.



This poem just makes me happy when I read it. I think it would steal any girl's heart. It is an expression of complete love.



I also am having a little Valentine's Day Giveaway.

Funny story: Isaiah has an obsession with infomercials. He watches them and memorizes them. If it was up to him, our house would be full of Magic Bullets and Tobi Steam Cleaners. He thinks everyone should own Aqua Globes...that was what we bought moms and grandmas for Mother's Day last year. I'm always aware of any new fitness contraption or phenomenon...Isaiah is sure to let me know..."it'll make you skinny" he says...thanks for thinking of me Bub. During Christmas, the Snuggie infomercials were a hot new thing, so what did he want to buy everyone for Christmas? Yep, Snuggies! However, the lovely people at Snuggie did not send out our 8...yes, EIGHT...Snuggies until a few weeks ago. So, here we are 2 months after Christmas and we have 8 Snuggies! I have given some of them away and we've kept a couple to use ourselves, but we do have one Snuggie left...and it needs an owner...a free book light is included with every purchase...er, I mean giveaway.

If you would like to win a Snuggie and a book light, leave me a comment. I'll draw a winner on Wednesday (February 18).



To all my blog land friends...Happy Valentine's Day

Hey JennyKate,
I actually was just thinking that I thought my little darling daughter must be watching too much TV b/c I was complaining to myself last week about a little, well... zit that showed up on my face. I was going on and on about how I hated acne and so on, when my sweet little Tori-bug said that I should get Proactive b/c it is guaranteed to work and if it doesn't you can get your money back. HILARIOUS, these kids!! I was contemplating taking away her TV priviledges when I thought I shouldn't b/c just maybe she could help me someday. Who knows, she might find something to help me with cellulite!!
Thanks for the fun contest!! Happy Valentine's Day.
Wendy
