The Fiesta of Awesomeness

Remember the Valentine's Day Challenge? We totally made it! We promised to randomly draw a name and send them a Fiesta of Awesomeness. We thought we'd show you the Fiesta and tell you all about it. We wish we could send you each your own basket 'o' fun, so that you too could feel the love, but alas, we are both technically unemployed. And therefore broke.

What is in a Fiesta of Awesomeness? Other than - of course - awesomeness...
  • Girl scout cookies - SAMOAS
  • Two kinds of Ghirardelli chocolates
  • Beef jerky (because Lydia loves it soooo much)
  • Two amazing books hand selected by Kate for your reading pleasure:
    • The Book of General Ignorance
    • Secrets of a Shoe Addict
  • A Starbucks gift card
  • A little T-box (red flavor)
  • A playlist with MommyLand songs hand selected by Lydia for your listening pleasure

There was supposed to be a box of free-trade Punjana but apparently (after looking in SIX stores) there is some sort of regional Punjana shortage. Think about it. Where we live - there is no punjana. How terribly sad.

Also, we had a couple of people express interest in what was on the MommyLand playlist. Lydia and iPod collaborated on songs that alternately amused and offended Kate. Here they are:
Songs from the BWT

  1.  My Hair Looks Fierce by Amanda Lepore
  2. In These Shoes? by Kirsty MacColl
  3. Tres Tres Chic by Mocean Worker
  4. Give Him The Ooh-La-La by Blossom Dearie
  5. Bourgeois Shangri-La by Miss Li
  6. These boots are made for walking by Nancy Sinatra (But Kates's are made for kicking your a$$)
  7. Man Smart (Woman Smarter) by Harry Belafonte
  8. What You Waiting For? by Gwen Stefani
  9. That's Not My Name by The Ting Tings
  10. Low (feat. T-Pain) by Flo Rida Low (feat. T-Pain)
  11. U.N.I.T.Y. by Queen Latifah
  12. Gunpowder & Lead by Miranda Lambert
  13. Young Folks by Peter Bjorn and John
  14. The Humans Are Dead by Flight of the Conchords
  15. My Stupid Mouth by John Mayer
  16. Trouble Maker by Weezer
  17. Cold Beverage by G. Love & Special Sauce
  18. 15 Step by Radiohead
Please note: You can hear all the songs by clicking! They're all either YouTube or Amazon links. You will notice there is NO Sarah McLachlan. Also, the first Twilight nerd that can tell us the significance of the last song, gets a cd. As you know - Lydia has watched the movie about 11,000 times on cable.

So what do you think? We really tried to make it awesome because we are so grateful for you and the fact that you shared our rants with your friends. And we had fun putting it together. So much fun that maybe in a couple of months we'll have an all-new challenge with an all-new fiesta. Or maybe this time is will be a "Fete D'Awesomeness" or a "Soiree of Super" for the mommies who get us to 5,000 fans. It can have French things. Or fancy things. But also a little beef jerky because it is so delicious.

Seriously though - we just want you to know how much we appreciate each and every click, comment and share. Sigh... Not to get schmoopy - but we ADORE you. Because you're awesome.

Have a great weekend!
xo, Lydia and Kate

  1. 15 Steps is on the soundtrack to Twilight

  2. Amanda no it's not it was left off! It was a song in the movie Twilight and that's why it hit such huge sales!!!

  3. The big question: When in the movie was 15 Step featured??

  4. love, Love, LOVE your playlist!!!! You both just moved to the top of my list of AWESOME people!!! Have you ever heard of Fleming and John? I highly recommend checking out their music. They have a song called "Ugly Girl" that I have a feeling you will both love! :)

  5. In the closing credits :) Give the CD to Amanda!

    By the way Amanda Lepore creeps me out ever since the Heatherette/MAC video!!!

  6. Amanda - shoot us an email with your contact info and we'll mail it to you - with *extra* love. And Anonymous, you're VERY cool. Just thought I'd tell you. Kitty, am about to YouTube the Ugly Girl song. Thanks!
    xo, Lydia

  7. Why thanks but I'd say I was anything but cool in the sense that I took the Twilight Score (not the soundtrack)and made them ringtones for my phone LOL

    Question for Lydia: Do you not own the movie yet or are you just trying not to wear out the DVD ;P

  8. Lydia: Please wear out the DVD so that Twilight virgins aren't exposed to it, mmmkay? If, that is, such things as Twilight virgins still exist. Oh! The saturation! The schlock! The sparkling skin. Now, once you've worn a hole in THAT DVD, buy yourself the complete set of Buffy the Vampire Slayer DVDs. You'll thank me for it.

  9. P.S. That basket *IS* awesomeness.

  10. Forgive my ignorance...what is a Punjana? I'm feeling as though I may be missing something extremely important from my it Punjana?

  11. OMG! I totally love this song from Twilight!!!
