I’m a cheap date.  It doesn’t take much.  If you can make me snort-out-loud, I’m basically sold and in love.  So when one of my all-time favorite bloggers Delilah from Confessions of a Semi-Domesticated Mama* referred me to the My Life and Kids Community, I felt like a I tripped on a gold mine.  These people were funny!  Moreover, they were real!  I felt like I just walked into a room, could be myself and just breathe–and smile, a lot!  Then it got even better: I discovered this community had an awesome weekly feature Finding the Funny (this is also found at Kelley’s Break Room).  Basically, a whole bunch of bloggers link up posts each week that make them laugh.  Then everyone gets to read each other’s posts and laugh even more.  So, basically it’s a lot of fun, and, since I like to laugh, it really works for me.

Today I totally scored and get to be the lucky one to pick what I think are the five best from the past week.  Obviously, not an easy job, but overall, gave me a sense of self-importance and something to fuss over beyond changing a lot of poopy diapers, so it was really cool, and I’m so grateful for the opportunity.  Here are my picks for the five best of last week:

1. Stranger Danger from According to Mags
2. Fifty Shades of WTF Did I Just Read from The Fordeville Diaries
3. #$%! from Motherhood on the Rocks
4. You’re Full of Crap: Congratulations Grads! from Pish Posh
5. Don’t Forget to Manscape from Your Doctor’s Wife

*further shout-out to the rockin’ Delilah here: she is the one I credit with re-introducing me to the fantastic vocab-word-blast-from-my-past “snort”.  I had forgotten the importance of frequent usage of this word, but thanks to her I’ve now circulated it back into my regular vernacular 😉

    Thanks for including me in your picks!


    Kim–VERY easy pick to make! I think I might have to print out that post and frame or something b/c it would just be easier than repetitive “No, actually, Fifty Shades is NOT the same thing as Jane Austen”… 😉
