How amazing are these “Apple Cases” from KarasKustoms?! I’m drooling.

They sent me the aluminum case (below, left) for my iphone and it’s ridiculous. I originally wanted the copper (below, right), but they were out and I have no patience. . . especially not for something as awesome as this! Still on the older version of the iphone/ipad? . . . never fear, they’ve got something for everyone over on their site. Check it out!

Above, completely awkward, picture of yours truly shot by Richie using the Hipstamatic app for Iphone.
Like my messy house in the background? Y’welcome.

Remember this quote from this post? Well the other day, the owner of Designer Teez, Mike, sent me this bad boy (in both black and red). I LOVE it! Richie and I laughed our faces off when I tried it on. I’m admittedly a little leery about wearing it in public, because you know, people who don’t know me probably won’t see the amazing humor in it the way that I do. But I think, at the very least, I could pull it off at the gym. What do YOU think!?

I just have to make sure I remember to change before you know, showing up at a March of Dimes speaking engagement or something. . . or picking the kids up from school for that matter. Somehow I don’t think all these sweet, conservative little Arizona momma’s would know what to make of me. . .

Want one of your very own?

Comment below and I’ll send you whichever one I decide I don’t need. . . I’m leaning toward keeping the red, so the black (Women’s M) is up for grabs to one lucky commenter (to be chosen at random on Thursday afternoon).

Just FYI, Mike’s email read:

“I’m glad that you can see the humor in that particular t-shirt as I though of it after we had our 2nd child and was having a moment of panic . . . or frustration. But kids are the greatest things in the world and your blog shows what is really important in life. Thank you again.”

I’m so glad for all you blog friends who come and read and share and . . . well, simply participate in my life (albiet virtually).

Sincerely, you make a difference in my life, every single day.

xo, N

Giveaway from Umba Lumba!!

This week, I’m so excited to be hosting a giveaway from Umba Lumba! These hand sewn sock monsters are so fun I can hardly contain myself! Basically, every pregnant friend I own will be getting one of these bad boys for a shower gift from yours truly!

The winner will be free to select any sock monster from Umba Lumba’s Etsy, OR you can send in a pair of fun socks, and Umba Lumba will create a custom monster just for you! The Etsy Shop is getting a little sparse, they can’t keep these bad boys on the shelf, so for inspiration for custom monsters, check out some previous designs here.

To Enter:

1.  Comment below.
2.  Like or share this post on Facebook (there’s a convenient little link below), tweet, blog, tumble or coconut express about this post, and comment a second, third or fourth time to say you’ve done so, and you’ll earn yourself additional entries!
3.  Entries must be received no later than Thursday, 8/11.

Winner will be selected at random and announced on Friday, 8/12. Be CERTAIN to leave a way for me to contact you should you win, otherwise, another winner will be selected.

Good luck (and happy Monday)!
