Ode to Aiming Low.

I didn’t intend to blog today – that last bit o’ random was totally enough MommaKiss for a few days.

I can’t help myself, though, I have to share that I won something. I won a give away. And it’s a doozy!

So I’m minding my own business this morning, having a lil’ quickie with Target before work (sigh, amazing what you can get accomplished in 7 minutes…) and I’m in line to pay and my phone buzzes, showing me a an e-mail.

From The Ali Martell.

Subject: “congrats from Aiming Low”

Um, heart palpitations. No really, I started to pit-out.

This past week, I wrote a comment on their site – Aiming Low – because the lovlies there were giving away HP printers. So I commented and carried on, totally thinking I’d be jealous of the winners and bla bla bla.

Donthca Know – I’m the Grand Prize Winner baby. Look at this thing! It’s an HP Photosmart Premium Touchsmart Web AiO. They say it's easy to use. Please pray for me. That's a lotta buttons.



I am beyond excited.

The ladies of Aiming Low are divine. Truly. I met (and totally hugged) a few of them last fall when I went to an event in Boston.

And because I’m now a winner winner chicken dinner, it’s only fair that share some of the ways that I Aim Low: 
  • Sometimes dinner is a bowl of cereal. For me AND the kids. Could be Lucky Charms, could be Fiber One. We mix it up.
  • I am notorious for rockin’ hats on the weekend, less fuss with the hair.
  • When I’m wearing a casual skirt and have to pee, I just hike it up. No buttons or zippers. Way easier. White trash? Perchance. But easy.
  • For birthdays? Why mess with a whole big cake that you have to decorate? I just bake cupcakes, frost quick-like, use some sugar sprinklies and then decorate with print outs of the kid’s ‘character of the moment.’ i.e. Spiderman, Transformers, Diego. Just print and cut, tape on a toothpick and shove it in the cupcake.

Ha ha, lookit that, I rolled that last one into me winning the printer. Not bad, eh?

Have a good weekend, y'all.

At first I wasn't going to comment, instead just drink my bitter juice and go on with my day. BUT, I had to give it to ya lady! CONGRATS! Not to say I'm not seeping with jealousy, but I'm happy when cool people who deserve to win, actually DO win!

That's supah cool.

I aimed low today. Skipped drying my hair to shove it back in a few bobby pins instead. Hawt.

Wait, you're not supposed to just lift your skirt? Um....Do you take the whole thing off?

Since I don't know know when I aimed high, I don't have a measure for when I've hit bottom.

Congrats Momma! Lucky dog!

I mean I'd never thought I'd say this, but that's a sexy printer. I mean way sexy. Look at it, all seductive and glossy, like a sex toy really. Maybe it vibrates in scan mode?

Jellus? Me.

Wow. I never win anything and am always so jealous of people that do.

It all began in 3rd grade, when the girl next to me won the statute of the virgin mary that I wanted.

Can't shake the green eyed monster.

Can still say happy for you, though!!!

And thanks for your sweet comment. I also LOVE aiming's the best way to live...(-:

Nice! I had a short string of winning things when I first started entering giveaways and haven't won a damn thing since. Humph.
