How to Increase Traffic to Your Blog

 How to Increase Traffic to Your Blog

(Otherwise known as a BLOG HOP!)

If anyone out there has any great Vitamix recipes to link up, please do. I finally gave in and invested in one! I never thought I'd spend over $300 on a blender, but it seemed like such a healthy TTC tool (and, hopefully, we'll be able to use it for homemade baby food). If you've been on the fence too, they're offering free shipping this month, which saves $25. My credit card also has a 5% cash back offer for online purchases in December, so that helped a bit too. The one I have coming is a refurbished Vitamix 5200.

Please, please, please be worth the money!

ABQ Airport Shenanigans

Waiting at the airport.

Flight before us is missing 1 passenger.

Many announcements with her name.

Final call.

More announcements.

"Will so-and-so please make their way to the gate?"

Plane leaving.

The missing woman was sitting there THE ENTIRE TIME. She was playing with her phone and not paying attention. Somehow, she didn't hear her name or notice that every person sitting around her had left.

Now, she's yelling at the gate attendant because no one called her!

Merry Xmas to My Bloggy Friends!

I am watching The Price is Right while waiting to go over to my grandparents house. It has been forever since I've watched this. Did Drew Carey lose weight? One woman won a car, but the other contestants seem baffled by how to play. Maybe 2013 will finally be the year I get to compete.

Sexy Nerd just made me coffee with caramel creamer! What a perfect Christmas.

I wish you all a cozy, happy holiday!

Blog Hop! Link Up Your Faves

It's the final weekend before Christmas. Are you ready?

Perhaps you have things that you should really be taking care of before wasting time online.

Yeah, me too.

That said, I'm looking forward to reading everyone's posts!

(And, if you would be so kind as to comment on a few posts, letting the blogger know you found them through LambAround, that would be greatly appreciated. It can be your Christmas gift to me!)

Last Minute Gift Ideas

The holidays are in full swing. I'm pretty sure we should be coming up on Thanksgiving soon - this year really got away from me! No more procrastinating though. Now is a great time to add extra dazzle to your daily look. With Fekkai's luxurious line of high-end hair products, you're going to look amazing at all those office parties and family get-togethers.

And, of course it doesn't hurt to save some money in the process! LambAround readers can use the Fekkai coupon code HEADBAND at to get 10% off their order. You'll also receive an exclusive holiday headband (hence the clever coupon code, right?) with a Fekkai purchase of $50 or more, while supplies last. A Fekkai coupon is nice, but you're all such super duper blog followers that you deserve a Fekkai coupon and a free bonus gift! You're welcome. ;)

What can top this? I just checked the fekkai website and it looks like they're also offering free shipping and free samples! Yaaaaay!

What might you buy with your Fekkai coupon? Here are a few of the nifty gifties that caught my eye (hint, hint, Sexy Nerd):

(For anyone looking for last minute Christmas ideas, I've heard this is one of Fekkai's best sellers.)

The gift ideas listed above are budget friendly. However, if you're really looking to splurge, you can always order the Fekkai Ageless Overnight Hair Repair, which is described as "Anti-aging for your hair. Restores hair's intrinsic strength, structure and vitality." It has perfect 5 star reviews. It had better, since it costs $195!
Only $175.50 with Fekkai coupon code HEADBAND

I'm afraid my budget this year is only going to allow for some of the $9 items on the Fekkai site. If someone out there is feeling particularly generous though, my hair could use some anti-aging TLC!

Is There Such a Thing as a Relaxing Vacation?

Vacation Day #2 - Waikiki, HI

Nothing had been going right on our vacation. Our Southwest flight from Albuquerque was late to depart because a plane had been struck by lightening. We landed in Las Vegas, then sat on the backed up runway another 30 minutes. We called our hotel for their courtesy shuttle and we waited. And waited. A follow up call revealed that they had forgotten to send the shuttle to pick us up. 
By the time we finally made it to our hotel room, it was after midnight. It seemed best to scrap our idea of walking to the strip for our one and only night in Vegas and just go to bed.

But things were going to go better now that we were in Hawaii!

We pulled up to our hotel, the Wyndham Royal Garden at Waikiki, and it was nicer than we had expected. Actually, it was probably one of the nicest hotels we have every stayed in! A friendly valet instructed us to reverse out of their parking area until after we were checked in. He guided us into a spot in front of the hotel where we could zip in, then return to be valet parked once we were settled. Inside, the hotel lobby was gorgeous! Enormous, sparkling chandeliers lead the way to the reception desk, where we received prompt, cheerful service. Our vacation had gotten off on the wrong foot, but clearly we were just getting all the badness out of the way.

Checked in, we turned around just in time to see a parking enforcement officer place a ticket on our rental car!

Blog Hop! Share Your Favorite Posts

It's 3am and I'm wide awake. Hooray for idiopathic insomnia!

Methinks I will schedule this post for a more reasonable hour. What's the best time of day to post on a blog? Mealsothinks that methinks is a pretty cool word.

Merriam-Webster was with me on methinks, but isn't going for smooshing 'me also thinks' into one kick a$$ word. I suppose it does look like something to do with a meal.

Does a banana count as a meal if you eat it at breakfast time?

Is it still breakfast if you eat it at 3am?

Methinks you might be reading the ramblings of a crazy person. I'd better go back to bed.

Have a fun weekend, bloggy friends!

Christmas Wishes from Crazy People

I've seen some fairly outrageous shopping suggestions in Elle Decor, such as $10,000 sofas and $500 throw pillows. However, I don't think this holiday gift suggestion from their December, 2012 issue can be topped.

It's a "Jam Pot with Bent Spoon" from Asprey (whatever that company is - I'm guess I'm too poor).
 Only $925.

Think how delighted your gift recipient will be! Mostly because I imagine it would be pretty nice to have such a rich friend.

One who doesn't even know that jam already comes in a perfectly good jar when you buy it.

Or that any spoon - better yet, a knife - will do the job just fine.

Man, I would take that friend for all they had. I'd be like "Yay! A jam jar! But, oh, if only I could afford the jam to put inside it. That stuff is super expensive. And I'll never be able to afford a little bread plate, making it impossible to use your otherwise completely practical gift. Speaking of which, have you seen how the price of bread has skyrocketed lately?"

Side note: If someone did actually give me this insane jam jar, I would be too afraid to ever use it. How bad would you feel after accidentally dropping a $925 piece of glass? That's like a sit-in-your-garage-parked-car-with-the-engine-running mood inducing catastrophe.

Silly Elle Decor.

Side, side note: When I showed my brother my new Chevy Volt, the very first thing he pointed out was that it must be a lot harder to kill yourself in an electric car. Perhaps worse, this seemed like a normal thing for him to say. Worse yet, I had already given that some thought and explained to him that you just need to drain the battery first, then it functions like a typical deadly vehicle.

Happy holidays!
