have you...

entered our contest? http://www.mayaroad.com/2006contest.htm the deadline is only 3 days away but we would love to see your entry...

so i was thinking about the whole baby shower thing and as crazy as it sounds, i am not going to have one. i think it is a combination of things - from having a lot of guy friends for the longest time to almost feeling uncomfortable getting things from people, my DH and i decided that this was best for us. but there is nothing like those crazy baby shower games! so i have one for all of you blog stalkers!

i played this one at a friend's shower a couple of years ago and i think it is hilarious. this time, i am putting it together with a twist. here is the game:

how many SHEETS of toilet paper do you think deb and my bellies are added together? basically we are going to do the perimeter of our bellies but measured in toilet paper sheets. since deb is about 10 states away from me the rules are - we will each use the toilet paper we have in the house to measure ourselves and we will add the 2 numbers together... as always with games like this, there is a PRIZE -for the person that is the closest! we will fill this beautiful coffee break tin below with ribbons and chipboards for the winner and i will send it to them! in the event that there is a tie, we will draw a name for the winner.

so think about it and post here to my blog - make sure you have some sort of ID instead of anon so i can reach you! good luck!

First of all, no, I did not enter the contest, because that would require me to use this beautiful stash of colorful MR ribbons that I have and honestly, I can't stop looking at them long enough to put them on paper!! They are scrumptious! Secondly, what a fun toilet paper question! Ummm...I'm going to guess 26. I hope that I have grossly underestimated my guess so that it offends neither of you teeny tiny girls!

I love the picture of you in the window! Great shot!

Well, unless toilet rolls in New Zealand are smaller than in the States, I'm guessing 36. Would you believe I have just got up from my desk at work and casually wandered into the toilet to see how big 1 sheet of toilet paper is. Then I had to flush just in case someone happened to be walking by. LOL
