♫ Let's talk about Give-a-Way...♫ (hijacked by Collin)

...Let's talk about you-and-may.... (British accent makes it rhyme)

So most of you know my wife has put on a liiiiiitle bit of stomach weight these past 9 months which she just informed me is a actually a BABY and she's not hiding a post-Halloween jack-0-latern under her shirt (phew). She has been incredible these last 39 weeks and deserves a break from picking winners hence moi gets to do it. Embarrassing story? I once saw asked a woman if she was fat, and she said "NO, I'M PREGNANT!" (whoops and JK) This turkey is set pop out the oven 2 days before Thanksgiving so if everything goes as planned, we'll be enjoying HOSPITAL FOOD on Turkey Day!!!

YAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYyyyyyyaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrggggghhhhhhh.....

And just for the record, I'm not one of those husbands who walks around telling people, "WE're pregnant". What's all that "WE" stuff? SHE is pregnant, not me guys, so why do some men say "WE are pregnant"? I do that mainly because I don't want her walking up to a group of her friends and saying, "WE have been chewing on a toe-nail clipping for 20 minutes." I...*I* have been chewing on a toe-nail clipping for 20 minutes. Sheesh.

Oh, I have a question for you all: out of 756 comments NOT ONE OF YOU SAID YOU WERE THANKFUL FOR COLLIN?!?!?! Really ladies, after ALL these years? One person *did* mention my name, but not a single ounce of gratitude? (epic eye roll). I would've picked everyone to win who said "I am thankful for Collin and his slanted chin".

Lesson learned, ladies?
Now, if you DIDN'T WIN anything today, please do NOT get angry and throw you're computer out the window. Bright side? At least your name isn't Eunice Bumsniffer. (glass is half full, people).
Let's start with the 5 winners of Bijou Market handmade awesomeness!

3. Kathy said...

Beautiful post as always and a gorgeous giveaway, you are a dear soul:) I hope that baby bump is being kind and you are getting plenty of feet up time. We don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in Australia, but I am grateful for many things... one being the cherished moments with my delicious twin girls (now 5), who graced us way too early with their presence during my short lived 6 month pregnancy, they are a true blessing and one that I am grateful for each and every day.

Make sure to email your address to elizabeth.kartchner@gmail.com and each sponsor will ship out your prize!!

That was fun. I'm bored now.

Jane said...

LOL! aahh my cheeks hurt from laughing...the ones on my face!!!LOL see what Collin does! You're so fun and I'm thankful for you and your awesome wife! ;)
Congrats to all the lucky winners!

Ann Marie said...

Collin Kartchner! I did say I was grateful for you (didn't I?).

Even though you didn't pick me, I still got a great 3:51 p.m. laugh. So thank you for that.

Congrats on the toenail.

leah said...

WOw! i think you should hijack more often. I am thankful you made me laugh today :D Lizzy's cheeks must hurt from laughter all the time.

love the labels btw ;)

Joy Thomas said...

You are too funny!! Hope your little girl come out on time :)

Beatriz said...

Congratulations to all the winners! I hope Lizzy and the little girl are ok!

Thank you Collin for your hilarious posts!

Melissa said...

Hah.. I'm thankful for your hijacks, Collin. :) Hope all goes well next week with the baby, and congrats to all the winners!

xoxo... t said...

You are hilarious. I look forward to many more hijackings!

beckyjune said...

I love your hijackings, too, Collin! And, I would have said I was thankful for you and your slanted chin. I missed my chance at the giveaway because I, too, am pregnant (just me, not my husband, though neither of us eats toenail clippings) and have been so sick. I hope you get your little one in time for Thanksgiving!

Esther said...

Even though I did not win anything (boo-urns), I thoroughly enjoyed this post.

ps. I now have Hanson in my head. Thanks a lot.

Nancy W said...

How rude of me not openly admit that I am thankful for Collin! I mean a day doesn't go by that I don't pull out Liz's book and scratch and sniff the page that he autographed for me! I mean really, how rude ;) Love it when you hijack the blog, Collin! Hugs, Hugs and more Hugs just for you my Spark Brother ;)
hugs from Conroe, TX

Sent from my ipad ;) LOL

Laura said...

Ha! This is probably why Mrs. K. is not posting today...too busy trying not to laugh hysterically in her late prego stage;) Fabulous hijaking Mr. C.

Jackie said...

oh man, i just love chewing on toe nail clippings! it is a definite guilty pleasure of mine lol :X kinda embarassed now, but whatever! ;P

paperpaisleys said...

Collin, that was so amusing, I nearly....well I can't tell you what happened from laughing so hard! And here I thought that my DH was the only one with the atoenail issue! HA who knew!!! Thanks for the chuckle!

brjenka said...

and just how did you know my name was Eunice Bumsniffer???

HoneyPunches N' PumpkinStamps said...

COLLIN..... I do believe that you are referencing my post, atleast I think it was me, here is my post that I sent on Nov. 15 @ 2:57...As you can see I clearly said that I was grateful for COLLIN but still was not a winner..... :(

POST FROM NOV 15.
HoneyPunches N' PumpkinStamps said...
I am grateful for firsts...babies first smile, babies first giggle, babies first snuggle, babies crawling for the first time....(Not so grateful for babies teething, which my son is at right now.) But I guess it's still a first so maybe I can be grateful for teething just a bit. OH AND GRATEFUL FOR COLLIN if he is again picking the winner...PICK ME!!!!

Cheers, Shannon (if I am chosen email shanjay@shaw.ca)

Cristina-Sweet Pea Ink said...

ok...the labels below the post are the funniest part! love it!
and i bet you all will be so wrapped up in your newest little bundle you will hardly miss the turkey from home...ok you probably will...but it sounded good!

Helen Tilbury said...

Collin please DO NOT let your wife read this UNLESS you really want her to go into labour immediately from uncontrollable laughter - leading to belly ache - leading to contractions! I love the label "I should buy Collin a Christmas Gift" & am definitely remembering to be grateful for you next year - you seriously crack me up!

Vintage Love and Photographs said...

I've always thought it was strange when guys would say 'We're pregnant' cause last time I checked guys aren't carrying a baby for 9 months and then giving birth to babies. If that were the case my husband can do all the work and I'll go out for pickles and peanutbutter for him instead!

Renee said...

I hope that it is not too late to say that I am grateful to you, Collin! Oh, you did an awesome job with this blog post-really awesome! Please say Hi to Elizabeth! You all are awesome!!

Renee said...

P.S. Best Wishes to both of you!! 'So happy for you and much more!!

Winter said...

You CRACK me up! :)

Antoinette said...

Oh dearest Collin - you are so funny! Thanks for putting a smile on my face today!

The Slack Family said...

Just had to add I HATE when people say "we" are pregnant, too. Especially when the girl says it! I always feel like say, "Really? Your husband is pregnant, too?" Happy you brought that up. Thought I was the only one who was annoyed by that :)

Steff said...

Although I didn't win...(sigh)...it was fun reading your post, Collin! You have such a great sense of humor! Thanks :)

jillian said...

Oh, yes, my bad. I do quite enjoy when Collin hijacks and adds in his two (or three or four) cents worth. :)

Liz, good luck with the next baby! Hopefully, if you are in the hospital for turkey day, they make you something delicious. But maybe little girl will get to wear a feather! :)

Anonymous said...

I'm confused....your husband actually hijacked you blog and wrote this silly stuff or is it a joke?

Anonymous said...

You are freakin hilarious, Collin.

michelle louise said...

Hope you can make Liz laugh when she's in labour Collin, I'm sure if any husband can it will be you! Hope all goes well next week and can't wait to see pics of your new princess.
