Trendy Tuesday - A Contest

We have not had trendy Tuesday contest in quite some time. So, no time like the present. As you may have guessed from my Sunday post, our year long experiment of Fancy Simple has had some highs (super guest bloggers) and lows. It has also brought a lot of you to our life. When things are bleak, it is the funny and sweet commenters that really keep us going.



1) We like to know you are out there and we are not spitting into the wind.



2) Are we missing any topics? What are YOU thinking out there?



For today's Contest - a prize will be drawn for one of the commenters. The more commentors the bigger the prize. It could be lipgloss....it could be Starbucks... it could be .... SOMETHING MORE AWESOME.



Here goes, a little game I like to call either or. You have to choose the first option or the second. Neither is not an option:



A. Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi

B. Tank Tops or Cozy Sweaters

C. Apple Pie or Chocolate Cake

D. Chap stick or lipgloss

E. A bike ride or a long nap.

F. Party all night or peace and quiet.



See... that is not so hard. Let us see what you are about. If you have an either or you would like to see what our lovely friends and readers like, throw it into your comments!

A girl will do anything for Starbucks.

Diet Coke-Pepsi goes flat too fast
Sweaters-much more variety
Chocolate cake-I may love anyone who chooses the apple a little less
Chap stick-i'm a utilitarian kind of girl
i think the next two go hand in hand-long nap and peace and quiet

Don't worry, you aren't spitting in the wind. I don't seem to be much of a commenter, but I'm always reading via RSS!

1. Having worked at a place that was loyal to pepsi products I would have to day I was a diet pepsi girl.

2. Oh please, cozy sweaters definitely - they hide more!

3. Chocolate cake.

4. I like chap stick because I have somehow convinced myself that it is good to have sunscreen on the lips.

5. Nap. What is a nap? I have three young kids... so I pick a nap (oh, now I want a nap sooo bad!).

6. See #5... peace and quiet would be wonderful.

I have been enjoying your blog for many months, though I don't always have time to comment. I have even used some of your quotes in my scrapbooking and once used one on my blog (gave you credit and everything). I hope you keep posting! :)

Take care!

F. Party all night **I surprised myself when I answered this way. But, I’m a stay-at-home mom of two (wonderful) kids, and sometimes the snotty noses, fruit snacks, diaper changes, Blue’s Clues, laundry, time-outs, games of Candy Land, etc. just make me want to rebel against it all, and go find something wild and crazy to do.

Robyn said...

A. Diet Coke, but I pick Pepsi One over everything

B. Cozy Sweaters

C. Chocolate Cake most of the time

D. Lipglosss, but it has to be Bare Escentuals

E. A long nap

F. Peace and quiet. I too have 3 young kids so I love peace now like I never have before. :)

I know it may seem like a thankless "job" when comments are low, but I truly enjoy your blog. I think you're read and enjoyed by many more people than you realize. I suspect that there are many more readers like me that read the quote, feel better about the day and move on without commenting.

Greta said...

Diet Coke- Pepsi is way to sweet

Tank top- we don't have season's down here...in sweaters you would sweat to death even when it is suppose to be "winter".

Apple pie- Although i am not a big sweet eater. i could take or leave both of them.

lip Gloss- MAC lipglass all the way.

Long nap- which i need right now. i don't own a bike but I would love to buy one.

party all night- I need it. I haven't partied in quite some time.

CoCo said...

Hey ho - mine very much reflect the feeling at the moment....am 8 months pregnant....

Diet Coke (but prefer non diet)
Cosy Sweater (although I'm having heat issues...it's getting cooler now and I'm kinda looking forward to winter)
Apple Pie (chocolate brownie, yes, but cakes can be unpredictable - every apple pie is good in some way)
Chapstick (not a lip gloss or lipstick kinda girl...eye makeup all the way instead!)
Long nap (and it's 8am...I could nap at any time at the moment...oh the joys of pregnancy!)
Peace and Quite (ditto...I might otherwise be a party girl but not in a party mood at the moment)

Love the blog btw.

nic said...

Hmmmm, let's see...

A. Does it have to be diet, cuz things without real sugar just aren't as sweet. If I must choose, Diet Coke.

B. Cozy Sweaters. Goes great with cold nights and hot tea.

C. Chocolate Cake, especially if it's in the form of a cupcake with sprinkles. It's just better that way.

D. Burt's Bees all the way man.

E. A long nap, a really really long nap in an exceptionally dark room (sounds like an excellent idea right now).

F. Mostly peace and quiet.

I haven't been around much in-- oh months-- but I just had to pop in today and tell you guys how much I enjoy reading the quotes-- even if I don't blog about them.

So to answer your questions.

A. neither-- I'm breaking the pop habit one day at a time.

B. Cozy sweaters. Good thing I live in WI :)

C. I'm going with apple pie since it's fall and that makes me happy

D. Chap stick. I think gloss makes me lips look like they're shaped funny.

E. gotta go with the nap. Never seems like I have enough time in the day to take one!
