I’m SUPER excited about this week’s Freshly Picked Rosebud…It’s none other than the lovely lady behind A Day in the Life of a Surferwife!

a day in the life of a surferwife

I visit this chicka’s blog whenever I wanna laugh my arse off. She is freaking hysterical! Plus, we have some killa Twitter wars. I.E. We recently debated who was hotter…Dylan or Brandon? Thoughts?

My favorite feature about her blog are her regular “Celebrity Encounter” posts. She rates how good or not so good her encounter was with a certain tinsel town res…like this guy for instance.

kirk cameron

And then there was this girl…I wonder if she was wearing a cut off sweatshirt?

tinnay amber thiessen

Not only does she regale you with celebrity tales, but she’s obsessed with Heather McDonald…and if you watch Cheslea Handler, you can understand the obsession!

heather mcdonald

So, haven’t I whetted your appetite? Go laugh your own arse off and show your fellow Rosebud some love at her blog!

p.s. Have you guys seen The Old Spice Guy’s video responses to Alyssa Milano’s tweets about him? PRICELESS! They even inspired me to do a Shoptopia list…How to Get the Old Spice Guy…It’s really just a list of uber hot clothes…Perfect for date night!

    1- Pink Wrap & Go Tool Pouch from wedding favors unlimited is so cute. I’d love my own pink tools! (and I LOVE monogrammed stuff too…omg!) The β€˜I Think Of You’ headband from Spellbound is too cute. OH! They have this summer solstice festival where I live (I wrote a whole blog about it. It was a trip! And all the girls/ladies/old women wore fairy wings. This would be PERFECT for that). The Beaded Trim Jersey Tank on Fashion to figure is awesome!

    LOVE that tote – okay, most totes and nearly all things monogrammed, because my inner prep is so strong she isn’t really an inner prep… – but suddenly I think that year #13 is a great time to renew our vows just so I can buy personalized tea and cocoa (hers and his?) favors for our guests…

    Have a great weekend!

    SURFERWIFE!!! She is one of my most favorite bloggy friends. Great choice!

    As far as this awesome giveaway is concerned…I have been wanting a monogrammed tote ever since I got married. So that would be my favorite thing from that site! From Fashion to Figure, I love the chiffon top with jeweled shoulders. And I LOVE the “You Are my Sunshine” flower from Spellbound! I might need to get that for myself actually.
