Vintage Me: Awkwardpalooza

VINTAGE ME is a series I started in June while I was away at the Type-A Parent conference in Asheville, NC and I'm wrapping it up this week with a competition.

My challenge to you? Find the most awkward photo of you and post it THIS WEEK. There is a Linky at the bottom of this post. If you're not sure how to link up, shoot me an email.  Prizes for the MOST AWKWARD!

Let's take a look at awkward me. There are so many options, it's hard to choose just one. But when I saw this photo I thought it clearly deserved a post of its own. Let's take a moment to take in everything that is going on here, shall we?

  • Spiral Perm
  • Thick Headband Applied Partially Over Forehead
  • Giant Glasses
  • Braces (Probably with Pink Rubber Bands)
  • Quartz Crystal Necklace 
  • Bright Festival T-Shirt
  • Plaid Jacket (Hello Midwest!)
  • Multicolored Belt
  • Pants Pulled Halfway Up My Torso
  • Pleated Jeans
  • Some Sort of Ring (I'm Sure There Was More Than One.)

And, that my friends is just what we can see. Who knows what lurks beneath my knees?

Think you Can Beat Me? I dare you to try!

Here are the rules:

1) Post your Most Awkard Photo on your site and come link up below.

2) Place the badge below on your post.

3) Leave a comment below, so I know that you are linked up.

4) Take a moment to comment on a few other posts.

*My friend NC will be the sole judge and her decision will be final. She'll check out all the entries and make a final judgement no later than August 15, 2011.

The contest is period is from August 8, 2011 at 12:01am until August 13, 2011 at 11:59pm. No late entries will be accepted.


1st Place: $25 Gift Card and Wii Game Fit in Six

Book Review: Curious Baby My First Nursery Songs

Credit: Courtesy of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company
"Curious Baby My First Nursery Songs" with Musical Art by H.A. Ray will take parents on a fond trip down memory lane as the book features 5 classic tunes from the childhoods of parents and grandparents alike. One of my favorite features of this book/CD are the classic depictions of Curious George and the nursery rhyme characters. In addition to providing the lyrics to each nursery rhyme, this book also includes clever musical notation, such as eggs instead of regular notes for Humpty Dumpty and Spiders for Little Miss Muffet.

Accompanying this book is a CD that showcases each nursery rhyme in three different ways: Music & Lyrics (Tracks 1-5), Music Only (Tracks 6-10) and a capella (Tracks 11-15). We enjoyed listening to the folk style renditions of these classic nursery rhymes and found the CD to be enjoyable for both casual listening around the house and lengthy car trips.

My only wish here was that there was a code for a download of the music instead of a CD—if it weren’t for an old laptop we wouldn’t have had any place to play it except in the car. We did give it a listen there, but it’s just so much more fun to follow along with the book.

If you would like to WIN A COPY of this book (I’ll even pay the shipping.) leave a comment below with your favorite nursery rhyme. Please be sure to leave your first and last name in your comment. Each person may leave up to two comments. Additional entries will not be counted when selecting a winner. A winner will be chosen at random on August 4, 2010 at 11:59pm. Tell your friends, tell your family--spread the word. Good Luck!

Things are a Changin'

Well here we go again. I tried to incorporate folks feedback into my latest blog design. I have made the text larger, although it didn't take in the "Tug" post. It does seem to be working elsewhere. I also tried to make the design more simple and distraction free.

Feedback left here will also be entered into the contest for the $10 Starbucks gift card.

What say ye? Any and all feedback welcome.

Consider these little guys and gals the Executive Board of Have Stroller Will Travel (HSWT). And these little little people want to hear from YOU!!

Tell me...err...I mean "us"...what you think!

What do you like/dislike about the blog?
What kinds of posts would you like to see more/less of?
What would you like to see in the future here?
Do you like contests?
Do you like the new design?
Did you prefer the previous design better?

Any and all feedback is welcome! In fact, feedback is so welcome that I went out and purchased a Starbucks gift card ($10) to give away to a lucky reader selected at random who leaves a feedback comment below. The more comments you leave, the more times you are entered into the contest.

I'll leave this up for a week or so. If I get enough comments, maybe I'll even go get another gift card to give away.

I can't wait to hear from you.
