Upcoming Review and More Bloggy Business

This post is all bloggy business, so put on some sensible closed-toe shoes and nod along like you're really listening.

1.  I'll soon be reviewing another product for CSN Stores right here on my blog.  I'm super excited to be working with them again, because they sell awesome stuff such as dining room sets and cookware and toys and bedding and pretty much any other product you could think of.  So stay tuned for that!

2.  I'm bringing stupid back, baby!  Yes, that's right, another edition of "Little Things That Make Me Stupid Excited" is just around the corner!

Little Things That Make Me Stupid Excited

I think I'm going to make it a monthly feature and add a link-up thingy to it.  That is, if I can figure out how to do that.  Anyways, I'm planning on putting it up on the 1st of each month, so if you're interested start thinking about things that make *you* stupid excited for the August edition.

3.  As if this post wasn't exciting enough with all the bloggy blabbing, I'm *also* going to start another little regular feature here on my blog.  I'm calling it the "Date Night Challenge," and it came about because Scott and I are constantly trying to come up with interesting ways to entertain ourselves whilst chained to our house due to the fact that we have three children and zero babysitters.  Each week I will provide you with a recap of whatever date night we came up with for that week.  So without further ado, this week's Date Night Challenge theme is........

(imagine a drum roll here)

A Night at the Bowling Alley

A festive recap with all the details will be forthcoming.  Once we actually have the date.  Which will hopefully be tomorrow.  Or maybe Friday.

My hope is that this feature will inspire some of you to plan your own spectacular home date nights.  Or in the alternative, that it will make one of my local friends have pity on us and offer to babysit so we can actually go on a real date.  I'm good either way.

So glad to hear that you'll be doing another Stupid Excited list (and that you now have a button to go along, to boot!). From your last list I linked over to the Pioneer Woman site, and I think I love her, too. I have a bag of Stacey's Chips just waiting to be turned into one of her yummy recipes. Go ahead, give Ms. Winfrey a run for her money! :)

Whenever we do end up having a real date night (every couple months), we go out to dinner and then loiter around until we think the maniac is in bed! We don't really know what else to do with ourselves!

I'd babysit in a heartbeat. That would make me stupid excited!!!!

I know!!! You should make the date night thing a feature... but you have to do an activity your readers recommend! Oooooh, that would be stupidly exciting :)

I could never figure out these link-up thingies... maybe someday :)

Gosh, I haven't been bowling in so long. When my husband and I started dating, that was definitely one of our things to do. I can't wait for you to start the Date Night Challenge.

Every time I visit your blog and see your owl it Cracks. Me. Up!!
