Hey, how was your week? Good? Well, let me ask you this: Did you experience a catastrophic hard drive failure in the last seven days? No? Then it was a good week. Trust me.

Let’s all go cruise some blogs and put this week behind us….

See, your week just got better after reading those!

* * * * *

And just to make the week even better, I’m guessing a deal or two might put a spring in your step. Just a hunch, of course.

It’s probably a little sad that the Amazon Friday Sale is one of the highlights of my week, but I can’t help it.

Today and tomorrow only, why not get free shipping on your order at Old Navy? Just use coupon code 1CHECKOUT and shipping is absolutely free. There’s plenty on sale, too.

Got Father’s Day on the brain? Daddy wants delicious specials from Omaha Steaks. I mean, unless Daddy’s a vegetarian. (If he’s a vegetarian, may I suggest a nice bag of carrots, instead…?)

If the steaks don’t float your boat, check out the outlet at Brookstone for dad-friendly gadgets. And don’t forget to use coupon code AF2JUNE for $10 off your $100+ order. (Big spenders can use code AF9MAY for $30 off $300+, and if you choose to utilize AF1JUNE for $70 off $700+, I’m available for adoption.)

That’s it for me; enjoy your Friday and have a great weekend!

Gooooood Friday morning! I hope you have a marvelous weekend planned, and I can help you get into the slacking spirit with a few extra blogs to cruise, this morning. I live to serve, you know. (Just don’t tell your boss it was me, mmmkay?)

* * * * *

Hey, isn’t this one of them there shopping weekends? I do believe it is. Let’s scope out the savings, shall we?

Over at Liz Claiborne you can take an additional 30% off already reduced items with coupon code LIZMEM08.

There’s a whole slew of Memorial Day Doorbusters at Linens ‘N’ Things, plus you can use coupon code 26620000008 to take another 20% off of one item. (Ship to your local store for free pick-up, if you don’t want to pay shipping.)

There’s always the Amazon Friday Sale, of course.

The half-yearly sale for women and kids (because, really, the men don’t care, anyway) is on at Nordstrom, too. That means savings of up to 40%, and a handy excuse to treat yourself.

I’m off to enjoy the day. I hope that you do, too. Have a great weekend!

Good morning! I’ve been fighting a cold all week, and I would like nothing more than to go back to bed and curl up with some good blogs. Oh, wait a minute… there’s no one here, so I may do just that. I’ve even got some great blogs to get me started.

* * * * *

Ready to shop a little? Hey, maybe just take a look….

Spoil your little ones, or stock the gift closet: Get 10 hardcover books with 10 audio CDs for just $23.85 shipped!

Kiddie shopping alert: There’s tons on clearance at CompanyKids, especially if you’re wanting to buy ahead for next winter. Over at The Children’s Place, the clearance is at 50% off (and you can use coupon code S2A58 for an additional 15% off). And finally, at Crazy 8 you can take 20% off and receive free shipping with coupon code SAVE20.

And don’t forget the Amazon Friday Sale; how else would you know it was Friday?

Have a great weekend, all!

Good Friday morning once again, my friends! Do you know what today is? No? Well let me tell you. This is the first day of Mother’s Day Weekend. Don’t believe anyone who tells you it’s only Sunday. It’s a three day weekend. Says me. The pampering needs to start today, is all I’m saying.

Offered up for your reading pleasure:

* * * * *

Now, what might you need to look into as a little Mother’s Day gift for yourself, hmmm…?

Through May 12th, 2008, find yourself something purty over at Shoebuy.com and use coupon code Mothersday08 to take 20% off your order. (Free shipping, free returns, no sales tax!)

Through May 14th, 2008, enjoy flat $5 shipping on your order at Kohls. Have a Kohls charge card? Use coupon code MAY15OFF for 15% off through the weekend, and you can stack it with code MVC2554 for free shipping. If you don’t have the Kohls charge, enjoy the $5 shipping and use code NEW5459 to take 10% off, anyway.

Of course you’ll want to look through the Amazon Friday Sale, right? Lots of goodies there.

This weekend it’s 5% off Garden and Patio items at Overstock, plus if you go through this link you’ll save another $20 off $300+, which is useful if you’re buying something biggish.

And biggish is totally a word, this weekend, for Mother’s Day Weekend. So there. Have a great one!

Goooooood morning, and welcome to May. I know. No, I don’t know what happened to April, either. I mean, it was just here a minute ago. Weird.

You know what’s good for that panicked feeling that time is passing too quickly? Reading some blogs. Pinky swear! Why, the new handy list format practically makes them official!

* * * * *

You have one short week left to shop for Mother’s Day, you know. I’m just reminding you, because I’m helpful like that.

Take 10% off all jewelry and watches at Overstock this weekend, through that link.

Be part of the family at Eddie Bauer and enjoy Friends & Family savings; take 30% off everything but clearance with code SUM8FRFAM through May 4th, 2008. Or do the F&F thing at Macy’s with an additional 20% off using coupon code MACYSFRIEND through May 5th, 2008.

Well hello there, Amazon Friday Sale. Have you lost weight? You’re looking very pretty this week.

Enjoy your Friday, everyone!

Goooooood morning! You’ve made it through another week, and really, who could blame you if you spend just a little extra time reading blogs with your coffee today? No one, that’s who.

I don’t know him personally, but I just have to tell you that this installment of Project Christopher rocked my world.

Do you love Target? I mean, do you really love Target? (Truth: That blog scares me a little.)

Jenny went to Puerto Rico, and all we got was this hilarious entry.

Before you buy Spanx, please read this. And (an oldie but goodie) this.

* * * * *

Ready to shop? Mother’s Day is nearly upon us, people!

If you’ve got the budget, this digital picture frame is the one to get—Philips is top of the line, and that’s the only frame I’ve seen that’s actually cute as well as functional. (Want other Amazon goodness? I’ve got your Friday Sale right here!)

It’s the biggest sale of the year at Overstock: 7% off and free shipping through that there link. Excludes media like DVDs, but works on big stuff where the savings could really add up.

Today only, take 20% off any one gift at Harry & David with coupon code BLOOM. Get something for Mom, or even better yet, something to share!

What do you get when you combine beauty, sun protection and a great deal? The Sephora Sun Safety Kit, of course. It’s $87 worth of products for just $25, and the profits from every sale are donated to the Skin Cancer Foundation.

Have a wonderful Friday and a great weekend, all!

Gooooooood morning, and happy Friday! As it so happens, there is very little casual about my Friday today—my daughter is turning ten and there is much pomp, circumstance, and cupcakes in the offing. But while I try to make all of her double-digit dreams come true, you feel free to kick back for a little bit.

I’ll probably write a sappy post later, but Shannon already covered the whole 10th birthday thing, probably better than I would.

You should wear a bra that fits you properly. You should also have helpful illustrations to show you why.

Ze Frank has yet another awesome project in Color Wars 2008, and I am loving the submissions for Youngme - Nowme (a collection of photos where folks duplicate an old childhood picture as their current, adult selves).

Know what the world needs? More anthropomorphized ice cream. Obviously.

* * * * *

Shopping? Save some bucks and make me proud, people:

Today and tomorrow only, take $5 off your $25 purchase at Toys R Us through that link.

Need plus size clothing? Scoop up a great deal at Catherines—today only, use coupon code 776923906 to take $20 off your $20.01+ purchase!

Circuit City is having their Friends and Family Sale though Saturday, with loads of discounts and always free shipping on purchases of $24+.

And of course, I’ll be over browsing the Amazon Friday Sale. (And frosting cupcakes. Maybe all at the same time! Wooooo!)

Helloooooo! Did you miss me? Last week I was busy at BlogHer Business, and my Friday wasn’t all that casual. Sorry about that. This week I’m all about a bit of relaxation, though.

Do you think all lawyers suck? I don’t, but I won’t argue with a law student, especially when she’s taking children’s programming to task.

No time for vacation? No matter—you can laugh at tourists from the comfort of your home.

Vlasic is holding a very stupid contest.

Have a problem with a household appliance? My new boyfriend is the Samurai Appliance Repair Man. He told me how to fix my dishwasher, and I told him I’m married but willing to chat about valves when my husband isn’t around. Ahem.

* * * * *

And now a few shopping quick hits:

Hit Walgreens today and you can save $5 off your $20+ purchase with that printable coupon.

Use Clinique products? Stock up at Macy’s; use coupon code CLINIQUEG with your $21.50+ purchase and get a free $50 gift! Don’t forget that Clinique purchases of $50+ ship for free, too.

Take an additional 50% off anything at Coldwater Creek with coupon code WXH3123, even items in the outlet. But hurry—this one expires tomorrow (April 12th, 2008).

And it just wouldn’t be Friday without the Amazon Friday Sale, now would it? No, it would not.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Gooooood morning! It’s Friday, and… well, amen. That’s all I have to say about that.

There is a right way to get healthy and a wrong way. It’s always nice when the wrong way comes with pictures.

I always knew there was a reason I don’t play tennis.

Farting is not funny. Except when it is. Also, head wounds are not funny. Except when they are.

Furthermore, Mac users aren’t smugly superior, they’re smugly superior and hilarious.

* * * * *

If you’re shopping today, could you find me something to wear? No? Fine; be that way. You’ll be sorry when I show up at BlogHer Business naked. Hmph.

It wouldn’t be Casual Friday without the Amazon Friday Sale.

There’s plenty of bargains in the Coldwater Creek Outlet, and coupon code WXP1482 will take an additional 40% off your order total. They’ve got nice clothes but there’s also a ton of holiday items in the Home section, if you want to get a jump on next year’s shopping.

Have you seen all of the choices in the Lands’ End Overstocks lately? I swear I hardly ever visit the main site, anymore. Through April 4th, 2008, get free shipping on any size order with source code GOLF and PIN 530353035.

The big Spring Sale is on at Old Navy. I do love their clothes for the kids, even if their jeans do make me cry every now and then. (They’re called hips, Old Navy. Hips.)

Enjoy your Friday and have a great weekend!
