Bloggy Giveaways Time!

Well, since I missed the last quarterly bloggy giveaway...I figure I might as well participate this time!

So, since hubby just recently joined me at this blog, I think we'll give away two books.

But first, quickly who we are: I'm Majellamom, stay at home, soon to be homeschooling mother of two sweet girls, Eva (almost 4) and Charlotte (21 months). Hubby is il postino, which should give away something extra about him. He's a hard working stand up guy who loves to think, read, and state opinions. His only male companion in this house is our dumb pug dog...who is not exactly all male anymore. We are a Catholic family in rural Colorado. We love to hang out with our family and do all sorts of dorky things together. We blog about whatever we are thinking about...which is kind of a scary, when I think about it...

So, for my selection, I will be sending out a well loved copy of "Guiltless Catholic Parenting from A to Y*" (*Nobody knows everything there is to know, but here's wisdom to help you do it well.) by Bert Ghezzi and others.

And since hubby is not yet home from work, I am sitting here contemplating what would say something about him: A dorky history book? An in depth theology book? But in the end, I've decided on a joke audio book...

I promise the jokes on this book on tape are more entertaining than most of the jokes he tells. So, the second giveaway is a tape (yes, tape...we are that old!) "A Prairie Home Companion Pretty Good Joke Tape" featuring Garrison Keillor, Paula Poundstone, Roy Blount, Jr. and more.

So, have at it! For fun, leave me a funny comment about something quirky or dorky about yourself or your spouse!

And then go check out HUNDREDS more giveaways at the Bloggy Giveaways main page!

EDIT: Oh yeah, I always forget to add this--I'll take comments through Monday August 5th, and draw on August 6th. I'd stop the giveaway sooner, but we will be at the Midwest Catholic Family Conference this coming weekend...and I doubt I'll be recovered enough to do much before Wednesday!

No comments yet? I'm first?! Well I'm happy to enter, and am sitting out this big giveaway since we're in the middle of moving. Hope you get lots of visitors. :)

And I'm a dork, because I read everything in your post - except what to do to enter..forgive me. :)And you already know lots of my quirks.

My husband has the quirky habit of needing a fan blowing in his face to fall asleep. Don't tell him that I told you that though. Hope you have a great week (& weekend at the conference)!

Our first place was an apartment and he kept answering the phone when it wasen't our phone it was our neighboor. Then he would answer the door when the person was knocking next door not our door. He was a dork and still is!
Just kidding!

My hubby & son *love* Prairie Home Companion! (and we are still using cassettes around here too.)

How about something dorky about him? heh-heh.

He is kinda becoming a weather geek. He's always looking at radar and satellite online even when there *isn't* any weather going on...*LOL*

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog yesterday!

Oh my gosh, our family is (are?) SUCH dorks...we are board game geeks and play crazy "three-hour-long-with-encyclopedia-sized-rulebooks-involving-wizards-and-dragons" games.

wow - i would love that book!

a quirk of my husbands? as he's falling asleep, he tends to crack his toes frequently. SO GROSS. he's gotten a lot better after 2 1/2 years of marriage/cringing on my part, but he still does it when he's really sleepy. =)

I MUST sleep with the blankets completely over my head. Even though I get so hot in the summer, they must be up and over the head!

I'm a guilty parent! Maybe this book could help me.
My quirk is that I don't like mushy foods. I hate jello and seafood.

Quirky thing about us....in the winter my husband likes to sleep in just his shorts and crank the heat, I like to layer on the sweats have the heat low and burrow under covers. We can never find a happy medium so we never sleep well!
