Congrats to Stef, who won the music giveaway extravaganza. Stef? If you read this, e-mail me!


Meanwhile, there’s one more day for the personalized kid’s art book giveaway, so have at it!


Also! Tomorrow is a brand new giveaway from Moon and Back Studios. You won’t want to miss it.


I’m liking this spreading the birthday love thing.


And finally, I thought I’d share with you some of the family photos I unearthed the other day:




(Someone got a hold of the Evil Dictator Style Guide)




Looks like we all grew up next to a radioactive lake.


(I can hear you from over here.)

I keep telling my daughter she’s going to look back on pictures taken of her now and think, “What the HELL was I thinking?” She always replies, “But I like my clothes/glasses/shoes/etc. They’re cute!” I say, “Yeah, I thought that, too, way back when.” Then I show her my yearbook photos. After she stops screaming, I say, “See what I mean?”

Wow. Harvest gold shag carpet and burnt orange crushed velvet upholstery. Sniff. It takes me back. And the caftan? I think it just activated my 1970’s PTSD.

oh dear god, these are hilarious! when i look back into the family picture archives, very seldom do you find staged poses (well the first one looks staged, and the second one is *kinda staged) as my mom would always be the one with the camera taking candid shots.

i do have a great one (after my parents split up) of my mom, my brother and myself from 1991… socal awesomeness… will have to scan it for you.

I love these photos! Now you’ve inspired me to go through some of my family photos! And I have to say, it’s uncanny how much you look like your mom. So you should feel her spirit that way. :)

Ohymygod those pictures are SO AWESOME I can’t even STAND IT. The white leisure suit and the look on his face. Classic. I am DYING. I loved you before, but I love you SO MUCH MORE now.

Great pictures! As a product of the same time period I can totally appreciate the transition from traditional to groovy in these! Aren’t you glad they outlawed polyester finally??

Bwahahaha! I laugh because somewhere I have the same beauties. The 70s were just not kind. In general.
