Just a Little Note

I know that Lisa and I just started The Blonde Moms: Giveaways and Reviews not all that long ago. However, most companies prefer to see the giveaways directly on my main blog. At least at this point. To me, it's the same thing whether they are here or there, but it's a numbers game, I guess.

When I started blogging, I never had any intention of doing reviews or giveaways. I didn't even know about things like that. But, I have had fun with them.

I do not accept every offer that comes my way; only the offers that I think is a good fit and will give you something that you will like out of it, too.

I'm going to try my best to do the majority of giveaways on the weekends, with the links over in the sidebar. So, if you love giveaways, you can easily find them. And, if giveaways are not your thing, well, hopefully they won't bother you too much.

Some of my favorite bloggers manage to keep a good balance on one blog of doing giveaways and their regular postings and I hope to be able to do the same thing.

I'm not giving up on Blonde Moms and there will still be giveaways and reviews posted over there, but I wanted to take a minute to explain why you are all of a sudden seeing them here again, too.

Ugh, I kinda hate doing FYI posts, but I hope you understand and are having a fabulous weekend!

I haven't been doing awards on my blog for a while. I just get behind on things and something has to give, so I prefer to do other things to recognize bloggers that I love. I still appreciate the mentions, though. :)

I'm making a little exception here because this "award" from Jen at A Daily Scoop of Chaos is just too hilarious to pass up.

Here is what you have to do: name 5 CHARACTERS NOT THE ACTORS BUT THE CHARACTERS that you would get down and dirty with!!! And then pass is it on!!

All in good fun, since it's not possibe for the characters to show up on my doorstep and want to take me up on this offer. Unlike the actors that I might stalk down if I could.

First is Peter Bishop from Fringe. He's intelligent, funny, and mysterious. If you are not watching this show, you are missing out: on a great show and on some yummy eye candy.

Next is Domenic Toretto from The Fast and the Furious and Fast and Furious. What genius came up with chaning the names of the movies like that? Confusing much? Anyway, he's a bad boy with a deep sexy voice, amazing arms, and a soft side that he tries to hide. Hubs laughs at me whenever we watch one of these movies and asks if I need something to wipe up my drool.

Then there's Michael Scofield from Prison Break. Again, those arms. And his eyes. And he's so freaking intelligent. And sensitive. Was the ultimate good guy until he was forced to fight The Company. Remember we're talking about characters here, not the actual actors who play them even though I secretly hope to run into him in his small hometown any time that I am there.

There is no pattern here whatsoever with the bad boy with a heart of gold. And nice arms. None. John Tyree from Dear John is my #4. Even though I HATED the way that end of the movie ended- it was even worse than the book ending, which I didn't think was possible. But, John Tyree, the bad boy with a soft side, who runs around with his shirt off for no other reason than that he's pretty to look at, is still on my list.

Finally, a blast from the past and possibly the reason for my Fringe obsession: Pacey Witter from Dawson's Creek.  I was never Team Dawson: always Team Pacey. His sense of humor, the way that he always stood up for what was right- even if it meant that he punched someone to do it. Bad boy with a soft side? I wonder. LMAO Since it's probably a little creepy and cougarish to even put him on my list, I'll at least say that it's the college-age Pacey who is on my list.

I'm not going to tag anyone in particular with this because I don't want to give you one more thing to do, but if you decide to do it, let me know so that I can read yours, too!

I totally agree with 2-5. Not 1, but just because I've never seen the show. Well, to be fair I've never seen Dear John either, but the actor is HOT. So not the point though since it's supposed to be characters.. ah well, guess I screwed that up lol. But Dominic Toretto is my number one. I have an unhealthy obsession with that movie. I need to see the latest one.

mmmm pacey!
and all those other delicious hunk of men!!
yum yum yum!

and i get it about not wanting to overload a personal blog with giveaway stuff!
i try to only do mine on off days that i know people are more likely to be spending time with their families and then announce winners on mondays when people are trying to catch up on the blogs they missed out on over the weekend...it seems to work pretty well and i don't feel like i am selling out!

And yum....for all!

And..do you have any advice for giveaways/reviews? I've signed up on several different sites that were suggested to me, but I got notta. I was thinking maybe you knew of more that I haven't checked out yet.

Hope you're having a great weekend!

The other star of prison break had kids at the same school as my daughter. But that was last year (when my daughter didn't go to this school). I don't think they go there now! Oh well. My lust right now is for the psycho guy on Desperate Housewives. He's hot, although I understand he plays for the other team in real life. Oh well (like I had a chance with him otherwise!).

Good choices! There's nothing wrong with the bad boy who has a heart of gold. I may or may not have married such boy :)

OMG, I love Peter Bishop! I got sucked into that show because I'm a total Bones junkie and never turn the channel when it's over. But now I'm totally hooked on Fringe too!

I'm with you on Peter Bishop too. I've had a thing for Josh Jackson since Dawson's Creek as well, but his character as Peter Bishop definitely lights up my week :)

Mmmm Pacey Witter / Peter Bishop. He got better looking with age. He was my celebrity obsession years ago.

Pacey just keeps getting hotter. And that Dear John guy...HOT! Good Lord, I need to go see that movie just so I can watch him for a couple of hours :)

As soon as I saw the giveaway on your page, I had an idea what was happening :( doesn't matter where they are for me, I'll still be following you. You got your hooks in me and they aren't coming out.

Love, love, love Michael Scofield! He is (was) so hot! Too bad that show went off the air. But I guess he could only escape from so many prisons!!

What a funny award. Is it just me or does the first guy on your list and the last guy look very similar? Thanks for the eye candy.

John Tyree and Micheal Scoffield would be my top 1 and 2!
I have a couple of awards for you too, but don't feel like you have to do anything with them!

Oh what a list! I loved Dawson's creek and was team Dawson till he got all whiny. Pacey all the way")

I don't do awards either, but as I was reading this, I was thinking, "Oh please pick me, Shell. Please, PICK ME!" Because, I have to post those freakin' naked Barbies on my post! This is great because I didn't have anything to blog about tomorrow, so this is it. Check it, tomorrow, but probably not until late morning time. I have a lot of yelling to do before that. Monday mornings seem to be too much for kids and they drag around like sloths. Look for me after the yelling about 11ish. And thanks for the naked barbies!

Ohhh Pacey I haven't thought of him in a long time. He was my favorite on the show. I always found Dawson to be annoying.

May 16, 2010 at 7:06 PM

OMG, I love Pacey too! I was always rooting for Dawson because I feel bad for the good guy, but maybe that was also so I could run off with Pacey! LOL

Ooooh...I wet myself just a little bit over Michael Scofield...I'll help him run a prison break anytime! God, I sound so cheesy! Pacey...that freaking cracks me up! I totally forgot about him!

Although Joshua Jackson breaks your mold a little, doesn't he?

That's okay, I have a type, too.

Mostly funny nerds.

Wow, I love your stand points.
I like Peter Bishop so much as I'm addicted to the series. (I sincerely hope he'll choose Olivia after all).

And, of course, I like Michael Scofield so much. So sad that there was no Season 5 for Prison Break or there were no other prison to break to, I wondered. haha

To be honest, I still re-watch the series until now. =)

This is why I found this blog. I typed "Michael Scofiled vs Peter Bishop" on Google.

And I love "Dear John", I mean the movie. I'm not so familiar with John Tyee.

I love "The Last Song" more than "Dear John". The story is nicer. And of course Books by Nicholas Sparks are nice!
