Winner, winner; I want dinner.

Beep… beep… beep… and now, please enjoy an update from moi.

I have so many important things to tell you all! So now, in order of how I randomly decide to type them, here are some announcements:

Special Important Announcement #1:

Apparently there was some sort of contest on this here blog, and one of my lovely followers won a $45 gift card to CSN stores! That lovely follower is Sharon! Congrats, and enjoy!

Thank you to all who participated this time around, and special-brownie-points-powered thanks to Jay for submitting a doodle! I will get this up on the fb page soon :)

That kind of sounded like the points are coming from special brownies. I cannot confirm nor deny this.

Special Important Announcement #3:

This has been one crazy and stressful semester, but I am DONE!!! Only one semester left, and I’ll have that purty degree I’ve been working for :)

Special Important Announcement #17:

I got another blog award!!! This one is the Chupacabra Award for Excellence, and it’s from my bloggy friend, Gnetch. Her blog is bomb, and you should totally check it out. Right now.
There are no rules for this award, so I’m making up my own because I think I’ve earned it.

1.      If you are viewing this award on my blog right now,
and you think you’re pretty legit, raise your hand.
2.      If you raised your hand, you are awesome for 
obeying me and this blog award is for you.
3.      Only 3 of you are allowed to receive this award,
so commence the fighting.
4.      Ok, I lied; I have no way of tracking how many people
do take the award, so there is no limit.
5.      If you take the award and put it up on your blog, 
you have to make up your own rules
(because it’s kind of fun).

Special Important Announcement #K:

I think that I may have come across as too much of a winter-lover in my last post, so here’s a doodle that should make up for it.

Eff you, Winter. I'm in the desert, and you can't get me here.

Special Important Announcement #I Stopped Counting:

I’m hungry, so I’m going to get some food. Yes, I know it’s 10:30pm, but I am officially on winter break, so don’t judge me.

Another Giveaway!!!

In celebration of This Freckled Lemonade passing the 100 follower mark, I think it’s time for another giveaway, and my friends over at CSN Stores have offered up another $45 gift card to one of my lucky followers! As you know from my last giveaway with CSN Stores, this is only for those of you in the US and Canada. Sorry, international friends, but someday I will do a giveaway so that you all can participate.

In case you don’t remember, or weren’t following This Freckled Lemonade when I had the last giveaway, CSN Stores has over 200 websites where you can find everything – from cookware, to shoes, to TV stands for flat screens for that new addition to the den!

I’m going to change up the rules this time around, because I like change. So, here are the rules.
To enter, you must do two things:

1.      be a follower of This Freckled Lemonade either on Blogger with Google Friend Connect (located on the right side of the page) or by liking the Facebook page (link located on the right side of the page)
2.      send an email to (using the email address where you would like to be contacted if you win) saying that you would like to enter the giveaway and telling me your favorite (or least favorite) part about winter/the holiday season.

That’s it! 

However, since I loved your pictures from last time, you can get an additional entry by drawing me a doodle of your choice (using computer software or free-hand, whatever you prefer) and sending it to me in a separate email. You may draw multiple doodles if you want, but you will only receive one additional entry… and brownie points. 

So everyone has the chance to get two entries!!!

IMPORTANT: I’m only going to give you guys until 
Thursday, December 16th 
to get your entries in, so get to it! I will be announcing the winner one week from today!

In an attempt to persuade you into making me a doodle, I made one for you.

Good Luck!!!

Some Boundaries

My posts have been very few and far between these days, but I don’t really like that saying, so I’m going to change that
My posts are as rare as an attractive mullet lately. I bow at your feet and beg for your forgiveness. I have been super-duper busy and stressed out in regards to school and other things lately, but let me tell you something: I have NOT been too busy to notice that I now have over 100 FOLLOWERS!!! This is me:

Do you guys have any idea how many people that actually is? I am not sure if I do. While trying to wrap my mind around this huge number, I got to thinking: if you were all literally following me around all the time, that would get kind of weird. So, I’m thinking that, since our relationship has just risen to a whole new level, we need to set some boundaries and maybe even come up with a safe word for if things get too serious.

First: the boundaries
Now, I don’t mind if you guys are following my blog – in fact, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE that you are following my blog! Follow it some more, if you’d like! And bring your friends! But, when you step out of the blogosphere and into my world and start following me around, here are some places where you probably shouldn’t follow me. Maybe you should bring a book or a magazine or something and just wait for me outside.

The bathroom.

I know that you are all interested in what goes on while I’m in there, so let me just say that I am currently using Aussie’s 3 minute miracle on my hair, and that’s about all you need to know. Besides the fact that you probably shouldn’t be following my naked self around, having 100 people in my tiny bathroom would just be insane. Elbows would be everywhere! Someone would be standing on my toilet, and I’m sure they’ll break the seat off and then I’ll have to buy a new one. It’s best if you just wait outside, and I guess maybe hand me a towel if I need one.

The elevator.

First of all, you have to understand that I loathe elevators on their own, so you should not take this personal. I would much rather take the stairs, as riding in elevators makes me uncomfortable. The only fun part is when the elevator first takes off and starts going down, jump as high as you can! You’ll feel weightless and it is totally awesome.
Next, there is the fact that I am pretty claustrophobic. This probably stems from playing hide and seek at a sleepover when I was a kid and accidentally locking myself in my friends upstairs closet. Nevertheless, stick me in an elevator and add a shit-ton of people, and I’m checking out. Plus, one of you will probably fart and make it all smelly and hard to breathe.

These boundaries should be good for now.


p.s. the safeword is always onomatopoeia... 
and you have to spell it.
