Weekend Wisdom + My first Blog Contest!!!

If you are looking for my winning Italian Idol vocal performance, you can head here.

Weekend Wisdom is a series that will run every Monday. We've had three days to make mistakes, come to realizations and learn new things. This series will allow us to share those insights with others. Please leave your amusing, inspirational, useful and just plain hilarious 'weekend wisdom' in the comments section below.

And... this week I will be running a contest! The winner will receive $30 to Amazon!

So the question is... how do I enter? That's a very good question actually and there are three ways you can enter.

First: Leave a comment below with your 'weekend wisdom'. I have a few examples at the end of this post, but pretty much anything will work. Doing this will earn you 1 entry.

Second: 'Follow' my blog. You can either do that via Google Friend Contact or by email. (Both are on the right side of this blog) Doing this will earn you 1 entry as well.

Third: Either promote this contest on your blog, facebook page or twitter it. Doing one or all of these things will earn you 2 entries.

In the comments section below just let me know how many entries you get. (I trust you.) It'll look something like this:

Did you know that the strongest bone in your body is your thigh bone?

That's it! That's all you gotta do. I will draw and post the winner here on Friday, July 29th. Good luck!

So now, for a little bit of my weekend wisdom.

Don't give your dog a treat she's never had before, just before you leave for the day. You might find that it doesn't agree with her stomach and she'll spend the whole day getting rid of it on your carpet...

But how could you get mad at this face, especially when it was my fault...

Don't rock out to 'Livin' La Vida Loca', thinking about eighth grade dances, while at Spin Class. You may just shimmy right off your bike and onto the floor... not that I did that this morning or anything.

What is your weekend wisdom?

Don't drink more than 3 different types of alcoholic beverages without a period of sobriety in between. It does funny things to your digestive system.

DON'T assume that just because you think you dreamt that there was a bat in your house, that there isn't really one living in your office for the day...

Many home warranties only cover the plumbing directly under the foundation of your home, so if you have to have your pipes jetted 2 weeks after closing, you have to pay for it yourself! Wheeee.

Reading Kelley's Blog is NOT an excuse to skip physical exercise :)

If your breaks squeak and make a "farting" noise. You may need new breaks! Taking apart, cleaning and putting your breaks together may help with their gas problem too- but it may just be a quick fix!

Don't underestimate the amount of time it takes to dry your sheet if you don't have a second set and do laundry late.

Kelley said...

Wow you guys! These are great! I love the balance of insightful and hilarious.

Cait said...

Always stay true to yourself :)

If you are looking for an excellent alcoholic beverage that you can literally drink right from the bottle try RumChata. OMG! I just had it this past weekend for the first time and I fell in LOVE! It tastes like the milk from Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal. You feel like a little kid again and just want to keep having more... and more... and more.

don't ever do anything aggressive or negligent on your way to an interview- that guy who you honked at for littering might be interviewing you!

Kelley said...

Oh my gosh. That would be a horrible way to start an interview!

Would you want to work for a guy/girl who was like that though?

Hmmm... I suppose it you needed the job bad enough...

Don't assume you'll remember the combo to your lock at the gym; you won't--that's why you have 7 useless locks at home. Write it down somewhere!

Kelley said...

That's a good one... right now I don't get a locker when I go to the gym. But I can totally relate to having three locks at my house, all of which I don't know the combination too...

So why do I keep them? Ha

e@thisnotedlife said...

don't leave your purse on the stairs while your husband is carrying heavy boxes down the stairs...

Kelley said...

Oh my gosh! I don't want to know how that ended...

I hope he's okay.

Thanks for stopping by!

I have three bits of wisdom:
Lobster rolls are AMAZING, but they taste surprisingly even better when you're wasted.
Don't put all garbage down a garbage disposal even if it's name suggests otherwise.
Go to Ireland.

OMG! I can so attest to Lobster rolls, though I haven't had them in Maine. I also didn't have them when I was wasted, because I had them when I was traveling on business... haha.

Is there a story to go along with the Garbage disposal wisdom? :)

And yes, Ireland is amazing! I will definitely finish the recap of the trip tomorrow and Friday.

Don't leave your lunch where your students OR(Insert lunch stealer) can find it.

I am following your blog mainly to find out if you get and I-pad because I think it is one thing every person should have (and I dont even have a TV) AND I will post it on Facebook if you want ohioans to follow it! Let me know!

Kelley said...

I love me some Ohioans! The more the merrier my dear :)

I hope you got to eat lunch... I can just picture you sitting there, your stomach rumbling... bummer.

I'm definitely going to go check out the iPad. Thanks for the tip :)

It's illegal to name a pig Napoleon in France. So no naming of pigs as Napoleon while you'e in France.

Kitty litter is cheaper than Odour-Eaters for your shoes, and it works better.
