A Couple Quick Things

Just a couple things for your Wednesday. Then, after you read this, you should go outside, because it is gorgeous! Even if it's not, where you are, you should go outside anyway---the spring air is good for the soul.

1. Recently, Kate at Mommy Monologues posted a funny blog titled, Popular Searches that led to my blog--what the heck? I've had a couple pretty funny ones pop up lately, so I thought I'd share.
  • Mom duck tapes baby to chair. I do have babies, and I DO love me some duck tape, but I'm really not sure I've ever actually said the word "chair" in my blog---oops, I just did.
  • Worms in children. Ew. The girls do not have worms. They have never had worms. We've been a little busy to go fishing, and, while I do garden, I don't make it a point of discussing how many worms I run into, or slice in half with my spade (ew, again). Pretty positive I've never had a reason to use the word "worm" until this post, in which case I've typed it out five times (you're counting right now, aren't you?).
  • Lynda Carter, Wonder Woman. I did use a picture of Wonder Woman in my duck tape post. Who knew tape could be so inspirational?!
  • Amber teething necklace. We love these!
  • Hazelaid Discount Codes. This leads me to my next point.
2. Hazelaid (the company from whom I bought the Baltic amber teething necklaces) is offering my readers 10% off. Just enter discount code twinmom10 at checkout. This code is located on the right sidebar of my blog, and there's no expiration date for it.
A few people have reported back to me that the product they were interested in is sold out. The company often gets shipments in. I will make a point of letting you know when they get in a new shipment on Pontifications of a Twin Mom facebook page or--you can like Hazelaid on facebook.

See you later, we're going outside to play!

Thanks for the post, Julia! I love, love seeing pictures of Brynne and Hadley. Now that the weather is breaking, it would be great if we could plan a day at the park together.
I wanted to let you know that the people at Hazelaid told me I could pre-order my necklace, in order to make sure I receive one from their next shipment. They also let me go ahead and use your coupon code. What great customer service!

I love seeing what searches have led to my blog from time to time, too. I knew I'd get some doosies when I posted about the girls talking about "Daddy's panties" (before they learned to distinguish "underwear" from "panties"). And I used the word "strippers" in the title of my post today...should make for some fun company....HA!

I'm still overly excited about the pretty duck tape patterns. Who knew household maintenance stuff could be so much fun?

I have to agree about the folks at Hazelaid - they are wonderful. They offered to email me when the next shipment comes in.

Hope you had a lovely time outside! Hurray for SPRING! :)

Hello! I'm Kate. said...

Hope you had fun outside!!!

Those searches are hilarious! Baby & duct tape...I mean yes it's tempting (only joking) but I've never used it myself. :)

Well, that is...I've never used the duct tape on the kid!
