A Pregnant Chicken Hooking on a Corner - FOR US
You may remember Amy from her now infamous guest posts (things not to say to a preggo and her "oh! now I get it" moments) that are both the funniest and most popular posts in the history of Mommyland. Also, her advice for new dads made me wet myself.
Here's the sitch', (as you may already know) Rants from Mommyland is up for "Best Overall Mommy Blog" thanks to our relentless voting that lead to their win in the Best Miscellaneous Mom Blog (only because they didn't have a "Retina Burning Awesome" category).
So they need our votes again. Kate and Lydia are too nice to whore it up for your votes because they think it's kind of tacky so you know what, I'll do it.
We know they are the best. We know they were robbed by that rigged Babble Top 50 crap like a fat tourist in Brazil. So this is going to happen (insert Scarlett O'Hara fist shake and some kind of emotional, swelling orchestra music) because we know these woman are great, funny and look good in hot pants and they deserve to win!
We have until midnight next Tuesday (November 23rd) to click them to victory. I've even decided that I'm going to create a different vote button everyday that will get wackier as the end of the contest draws nearer (mainly because I'll run out of ideas).
Here's the first one in honour of Lydia's True Blood obsession.
I think the next button should be "Best Overall Blog? Oh, even yesser." (Courtesy of Stark Raving Mad Mommy) but feel free to suggest others. Just leave 'em as comments.
Don't forget they're going to still give away that iPad if they win it, so click away then leave your comment here to be added to the draw. Now to get all misty (cue the string section), I know these girls deserve to win, you know these girls deserve to win and they make us laugh and cry (and sometimes both) every single day. I don't care if they're too polite to ask for your help again because I'm not. So vote, and vote often, for Rants for Mommyland and make your mother, your friends and the creepy guy that hits on you at work vote too. I don't want to hear any excuses about feeding kids, possibly getting fired and needing more than 2 hours of sleep – I'm counting on you guys! After all, I didn't buy confetti canons for nothing you know!
Viva la Mommyland!!
