A Giveaway: Something For Your Top, Something For Your Toes and Something For Your Bottom

Good Morning Blogstalkers.

So Sunday was October 7th which means Quarterly Giveaway time!  Ryan loves to remind me that it also means I am officially 28 and 3/4 years old.  Ryan is a butthead.

Ryan's 29th birthday is this Sunday so I was going to make this giveaway all about his favorite things but I couldn't think of anything that he likes that you all would actually want.  I mean, who wants a boxed DVD set of Shark Week 2012, a bottle of Sriracha and no jaunty hats?

Sidenote: When I told Ryan my original idea for this giveaway he suggested that I box myself up and send myself off.  Which I didn't even take offense to and instead was like 'Ohhhhh you just admitted I am one of your favorite things." And then then Ryan was like "Shit. I take it back. You stay here with me."  And then I was like "Ohhhhh you want me to stay here with you."  And then Ryan realized he can never win.

So anyway, I decided to make this giveaway All Of Ryan's Least Favorite Things.

So comment below for your chance to win ALL of the following things:

1.) A membership to the Tee Shirt Of The Month Club at Busted Tees.  Each month you will get sent a code that is redeemable for the shirt of your choice.  There are new shirts like weekly and you can save the codes for whenever a shirt strikes your fancy.  Here are some of my favorites.  Even if you don't want to wear these shirts out of the house, they are excellent for lounging/sleeping.
































2.) Slippers.  From Zappos.  They come in about a thousand different colors (you choose) and have rubber soles - you know- for wearing to the grocery store and out to dinner and stuff.  They are available for boys too.


3.) Cake.  It's still hard for me to accept the idea that Ryan does not like cake.  It is not hard for me to accept his piece of cake as well as my own at weddings.  From Bake Me A Wish.  You choose the cake.  I suggest the S'more Brownie Cake.  I did not once eat this entire cake in one day.  It took me two.




4.) Surprises.  Because I like a little mystery and also because I can't think of anything else right now.

So comment comment comment comment to win.  This giveaway will end one week from today on Wednesday October 17th at noon CST when a winner will be chosen randomly.  Comment comment comment.

FYI: Only the first 200 comments will display below, you can see the rest by clicking "Load More" at the bottom of the comment section.

  2. Oh dear lord. I love the purple slippers!
    You're awesome to think up amazing giveaways quarterly - you should turn that into a job. Wait, now I want that job. Forget that previous statement.

    Obliviate!

  3. Some of those t-shirts look kind of fun. :/ Also, S'mores cake? YES, PLEASE.

  4. It's been a while since I have owned a pair of grocery store appropriate slippers. I think it's time.

  5. Chocolate, slippers and tshirts, oh my!

  6. I've never met a guy that hates t-shirts. That's just weird RYAN.

  7. I'm totally trading my healthy can of soup for that cake for lunch today. Diet schmiet.

    Happy birthday to Ryan! My high school sweetheart/soon-to-be husband's birthday is Sunday, too!

  8. These are AWESOME.

    ReplyDelete
  9. It's like you tailored this giveaway for my new work from home status! Shirts that I can wear now that I couldn't before! And SLIPPERS!

    Side note - just two nights ago I was doing the "RUfio RUfio RU FI OHHHHHHHH!" when the Alaskan kid that TOTALLY looked like Rufio was on The Voice. My husband thought I was crazy. I told him he was old and lame if he didn't get the reference. Then I decided we WILL watch Hook sometime this week.

    you already gave me a tentacle signed by the bloggess, so it is totally selfish and horrible of me to enter to win anything else. but I'm okay with selfish horrible behavior if its my own. :) <3

  13. I think I gave myself a hernia laughing at the Ryan Gosling as gosling t-shirt. Now I'm going to have to go to the doctor for an ultrasound and worry about undressing the proper amount AND not falling off the exam table. Thanks, LAUREN.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I think I should win becuase I invited you to my birthday party and STUPID RYAN! is having his the same day.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'm pretty sure I need all of those things in my life.

    ReplyDelete
  16. There's just something seriously wrong with a person who doesn't like slippers and/or cake.

    Being the nice wife that *I* am, I would bake a cake and buy him slippers for every gift-giving occasion :-D

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ryan doesn't like tee shirts? What on earth does he wear, then? And he doesn't like slippers either? Well, all the more comfy clothing for me!
    P.S: I would totally eat that s'mores cake in a day. Quite possibly in a few hours.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yes to slippers! October 15th is Monday and I need something good!

    I'm moving into my new house the 18th and I still have no phone, internet (*gasp*), or TV. I have no time between now and then to set these up or to order new slippers or a surprise. :)

    What a coincidence, I am in need of all of those things!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yes, please. Who doesn't need a pair of slippers to wear out to dinner? No one I'd want to be friends with:)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Jamie R.10/10/2012

    I love the t-shirts! I would wear them out of the house, especially the "Don't Stop Believin" one. And S'mores is my favorite dessert ever. I would finish that in a day. :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yes. Please. Oh random number generator gods - pick me! Thanks! Love, OL

    ReplyDelete
  23. How does he not love those shirts?! And the slippers?! And cake?! He is such a goober...

    But seriously, those slippers are amazing. They are going on my Christmas list!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I am super excited about the t-shirts. I do not have enough awesome t-shirts in my life.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hi Lauren! I love your blog! You have made me laugh many a time during my boring workday. I would love to win some cake!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ohh man. T-shirt of the month club might be the coolest thing I have ever heard of. Yes Please.

    Comment Comment comment! These t-shirts, and you, crack me up. I found your blog through another blog and I have loved reading with you daily ever since. Keep typing.....I need the entertainment becuase my job is about as exciting as an accountant in the middle of a quarter. :-) Cheers, Bobbie

    ReplyDelete
  29. Me please, they stopped making my favorite slippers that I wear to the store and I need a new favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think Ryan Gosling is my favorite of the t-shirts, though frankly all of the things in this giveaway are some of my favorite things! (Thank you, Julie Andrews)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Sitting here depressed with cold feet...i need the chocolate and slippers!! :)

  32. this is an amazing giveaway. I understand why Ryan hates shirts...but what does he have against slippers? Please me for the win!

    Oh my goodness, how delicious does that cake look! I could indeed eat that in a day.

    And love the slippers! I wish I had them now, it is freezing in my office. Apparantly my employers think that the colder it is the harder we will work. They are mistaken. The colder it is, the less I am able to think about work, and the more I think about how cold I am. That's just math.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Years ago, and we won't mention how many years ago as I'll suddenly look like one of those weird people that doesn't realize that they're too old to love and wear awesome t-shirts, so anyhow, years ago I had the greatest t-shirt ever that I have since lost and been unable to find. It showed a big crab dressed in an apron and a chefs hat and it was stirring a stew pot. Inside the stew pot you could see people floating around and the caption on the shirt read "Paybacks are hell". It was THE.GREATEST.SHIRT.EVER.

    ReplyDelete
  37. LOVE this giveaway! The shirts and the slippers are super cute, and I could no doubt eat one of those cakes in a day :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Awwww gotta love those catch-22s of love! Also those slippers look amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Those slippers just made me hate my shoes and my job; I wish I was at home wearing those exact slippers instead of at my desk in stupid heels! The cake made me insanely hungry, so off I went to Trader Joe's in search of something equally awesome. I didn't succeed, but did find whoopie pies. So, kind of happy. I'd be happier if I won!

    ReplyDelete
  40. THANK YOU for introducing me to the Shirt of the Month club! Even if I don't win, I may get that for my friendboy for Christmas. :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I NEED to win! I'd be uber grateful for some new t-shirts.... I'm running low and quite frankly I don't have the moxy Ryan has to go shirtless all the time. Those new slippers are quite swell and I promise to send a pic of me wearing them to a fancy restaurant if I'm chosen. And I love cake. I don't trust people who don't love cake. And people who think about sending their wives off to strangers. But then again, having you around to eat cheese and wax poetic about awesome books would be pretty cool.

    ReplyDelete
  42. That cake looks devine. A combination of brownies AND cake? Bliss.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I think it is unamerican to NOT like cake!!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. T-Shirt of the month is awesome! Totally excited to see what the surprise willl be.

    Love your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Thank you for giving me a reason to surf the internet at work...I work at a public library so I am all sorts of combinations of crazy, bored, stressed, and near tears every day.

    ReplyDelete
  46. OMGCAKE. Sorry... had a moment.

    I kinda of NEED that outdoorsy shirt like now. Those slippers make me want to take a nap.

    I wonder if I can get away with napping at work...

    ReplyDelete
  47. OMG I love the Cray-Cray as this is a term used often and with enthusiasm by myself and my sister-from-another-mother to describe when things are out of control Which is pretty much every day and does resemble a crawfish. Because crawfish are out of control. YES THEY ARE RYAN.

    ReplyDelete
  48. This giveaway is Cray Cray! I love every single one of these things!! I am a baker who works at home, so T shirts and slippers are kind of my uniform. :) Please?

    How can any of these items NOT be on someone's "favorite things" list?!

    ReplyDelete
  50. UGH I can't decide! the shirts are cool. but so are the slippers, especially since its almost winter. And who can turn down a surprise. Crap. Do I have to pick one? Can't you pick for me?

  51. Me! Me! Me! As a stay-at-home mom of a 12 month old and a 4 year old I live in t-shirts and slippers. (and my collection is looking pretty shabby right now) Also I happen to love cake and would likely eat the entire thing with a bottle of wine immediately after the children are in bed. And lastly mystery is sadly sadly lacking in my life right now. The last "mystery" I solved was "what the heck happened to my son's pants while he was sleeping" (he shoved them under the mattress in case you were wondering) It's like you designed this entire giveaway just to fit my needs! That was awfully kind of you!

    Also we share the same birthday... just thought I'd throw that in there for extra points?

    ReplyDelete
  52. A giveaway of all the best possible things! I'm delighted to realize I'm not the first person to make the unicorn-narwhal evolution connection, and I kind of need to show that to the world now...

  53. Alanna S10/10/2012

    Hmmm.. Shirt of the month club. Not as good as a cheese of the month club, but I totally wouldn't whine if I won.

    (P.S, is there anything as good as a cheese of the month club? I doubt it)

    ReplyDelete
  54. My sister says Cray Cray all of the time! That shirt is amazeballs! Please bick me to win!

  55. ooooh Me! Me! Me!!!

    Ryan's least favorite things include cake...I guess that can be a positive thing in which more cake for me...but really, it just makes me sad. Poor widdle cake - what did it ever do wrong?

    I want to eat cake wearing a shirt that says I love you like a fat kid loves cake.

    ReplyDelete
  56. The shoes look so cozy and I love cake, Tshirts, and suprises!

    ReplyDelete
  57. My husband and I sing don't stop believing all the time in the car ... and he isn't even embarrassed when I attempt to dance along to the music or pretend I'm holding a microphone. He is kind of awesome. Happy Birthday to your husband.

    I'm so excited about cake & t-shirts that I'm finally commenting.
    I heart your blog.
    You are funny even when you think you are unfunny.
    Thanks for being awesome.

  60. Everything is amazing! You have the most fun giveaways! Ryan is lame for not liking these things. :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. Talk about a perfect gift for MY husband... all of YOUR husband's least favorite things.... hmmm... on second thought, since Cake is involved I think I need to keep it all for myself. Shhh... don't tell!

    ReplyDelete
  62. T-shirt of the month is GENIUS! Are those slippers Ryan-approved?

    ReplyDelete
  63. I LIKE CAKE! (And those slippers are pretty damn fly. Also, I'm bringing back "fly". You're welcome)

    ReplyDelete
  64. I am apparently the bizarro Ryan because I LOVE everything on this list. Please, please, please let me win -- I NEVER get a chance to spoil myself with stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  65. OH MY GOD!!! This giveaway is unreal!! Lauren, I found you through the Bloggess whom I love dearly. And now I love you dearly. Now I check your blog and her blog on a daily basis in hopes of a new blog entry and a hearty chuckle. I'm in the Chicagoland area so we are practically neighbors! Love you, love the giveaway, would love to share a cake with you! Now I will get up from kissing your feet and i need to get back to work. :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. I love cake, but I'm more excited about the t-shirts. I busted out the term "cray cray" just last weekend and a girl looked at me like I was....cray cray. She said I sounded like my toddler daughter. I need that shirt.

    ReplyDelete
  67. TraceyM10/10/2012

    I love everything on your list almost as much as I love your blog! Who doesn't love cake?! That's like not loving cheese or unicorns. Your blog always brings a smile to my face, and after the week I'm having, I need that smile! Keep the posts coming!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I WANTED to say Happy Birthday to Ryan, but then you distracted me with the thought of eating cake wearing furry warm slippers and a witty t-shirt. Then I got sad thinking I could only get ONE of those options. But then I decided it didn't matter because those are all good options. Well played.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I do not like cake either. I often wonder what is wrong with me. I do however love me some Busted Tees! Girl, you cray-cray!

  70. Bethany10/10/2012

    Oh my gosh, best giveaway ever! I actually almost bought those exact slippers at Nordstroms this weekend but my feet are weirdly big, so they only had my size in tan and not the fun pinky-purpley. I think Ryan and I must be exact opposite soulmates. Cake is my absolute, #1, can't live without food. And, who doesn't like tee-shirts?

    ReplyDelete
  71. Oh those things all look fabulous! Sign me up for sure!! You're so sweet to do these giveaways :)

    ReplyDelete
  72. Cake and funny T-shirts?! How can Ryan not like these things?

    ReplyDelete
  73. Who doesn't like cake..That's just insane! Also while the slippers are super cute, no wearing them to the grocery, I just can't do it. Maybe to get the mail, that's my limit!

    ReplyDelete
  74. i am 41 & 3/4 so i WIN! oh wait.... crap! a t-shirt could really ease the sting of always being the oldest person in the room (right now im in my office all by myself, but still...).

    ReplyDelete
  75. These are my new favorite things! Thank you for introducing them to us!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Ummmm slippers, big tees, and cake? It's like a girls guide to lazy, and I am ALL about the lazy!!!

  81. This is an amazing giveaway! I want to hug that cake. Hug it then eat it.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I need those slippers (and that cake!) now!

    ReplyDelete
  83. It is like you picked all of my favorite things. Obviously Ryan has no taste. Except in you. Natch.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I really wish you were giving yourself away, but I guess I would take cake instead! :)

    ReplyDelete
  85. I would totally rock those slippers at work! haha I swear my (male) boss is going through the"change" is constantly hot! So it's like a penguin habitat up in here! But without the penguins! Holy Smokes how cool would it be to have penguins waddling around my desk! IT would be AWESOME, that's what!

    Thanks for the giveaway Lauren! Hope you a feeling better!!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Hey, I've never met you, and this is cray cray. But here's my mailing address, so send cake maybe.

    Best giveaway evs - thanks, Lauren!

  87. Awesome! Slippers, cake, and t-shirts! Who needs pants? Unless pants are your surprise???

    ReplyDelete
  88. I think my comment disappeared; hopefully they don't both show up.
    I LOVE CAKE!!

    Thank you for the giveaway, Lauren!

  89. is 89 a lucky number? i feel that it might be.

    i love all those things, especially cake, and would be happy to relieve you of them!

    Woot-woot! (don't judge me)

    ReplyDelete
  90. Yes, seriously. Yes to all of the above.

    True story - my husband once attempted to mail me away while I was sleeping. I was taking a well-deserved nap on the front porch after a Firefly marathon and I woke up to the UPS guy standing over me, looking at me quizzically. I realized that my husband had placed a package for pickup on my lap and apparently the UPS guy was confused if I was coming WITH the package or not, as apparently I had it in some kind of death grip. My husband denies attempting to mail me anywhere, but we both know the truth.

    Is Ryan a distant relative of Hitler? Because I'm pretty sure he's the only other person ever to inhabit this planet and not like cake.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Ok so seriously you just basically tempted me away from any diet idea I thought I would have haha! I LOVE those shirts! You are just a bit of amazing little miss!

    ReplyDelete
  93. Love the cray cray shirt! How can Ryan not love silly t's and cake???

    ReplyDelete
  94. Yes please! I really need some slippers for my footsies.

    ReplyDelete
  95. Yay a giveaway! I was too late to the party for the last ones. But now I can come to this party. I shall wear a t-shirt and slippers and eat cake!

    ReplyDelete
  96. I love everything about this giveaway!!! my hubby doesn;t like cake either, so I never really have them in the house :( This would be perfect! Also- I have pint glasses that say "Im outdoorsy in that I like getting drunk on patios" I obvs need the shirt too.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Yes... Please yes!

    I <3 the Cray-Cray T-shirt, and the Narwhals one, and the Outdoors T, and really.... so many of those, I think you might be a Secret Sister, given away at birth. I think I'd remember, since you are so much younger than me, but you never know. I do kinda have a blank spot in my memory, of my family, between the ages of 14 and 17. I blame it on High School and Duran Duran.

    I also LOVE your blog and as soon as I see a new post I just HAVE to read it right away...then wait...and wait for the next post. Not that you take a long time to post, it just seems that way. So anyway...thank you for sharing with us. I look forward to reading many more posts...and hopefully winning a giveaway...eventually :)

  100. Oh, these are the ultimate comfort items!! I adore those slippers. And cake. Oh dear, sweet cake...

    ReplyDelete
  101. If I were to give away MY husband's favorite things, I would be giving away beer and... porn. I don't think that's a good idea

    ReplyDelete
  102. Yea this is the best giveaway ever. Why do I suspect that the surprise gift might have something to do with tentacles? Or joy. Ryan hates joy. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  103. I'd have to bribe my husband with that cake to let me out of the house in those awesome cozy looking slippers OR unicorn/narwhal shirt...what a perfect combination!

    ReplyDelete
  106. I love this give away. so many things you can choose your own. T-shirts, cakes, slippers. Most giveaways you get are pre-determined. I like that you let us choose our favorites from Ryan's least favorites. Stick it to the man (Ryan in this case) again!

    ReplyDelete
  107. How exciting! a giveaway! I want in!

    ReplyDelete
  108. Those slippers look like the comfiest thing you can ever wear and possibly leave the house in so when people are all like "hey, did you just leave the house in slippers," i can be like umm no, these are shoes that look like slippers. and then proceed to give them a complex. thats fun times. also, i want in on the surprise and shirts too. because funky shirts are awesome and make me laugh.

  112. No offense, but Ryan doesn't sound much fun. Seriously, who doesn't like CAKE? I want to wear all of those prizes at the same time.

    ReplyDelete
  113. The cray cray shirt totally rocks. Love it and who can turn down free warm feet and yummy cake? I don't get not liking cake either but hey thanks Ryan for giving me a shot and many unneeded but totally lovely calories.

    Happy Birthday to Ryan! I think you need to get him the yummiest cake you can find so you can celebrate as well. I don't get cake on my birthday unless I bake it myself. My doesn't see the purpose (although he gets a cake, and so do each of our kids).

    ReplyDelete
  121. Ooooh! All of this stuff is awesome! Love the Ryan Gosling shirt, and the Rufio shirt of course.

    ReplyDelete
  122. This stuff is awesome! And my (28th) birthday is this Saturday (at midnight on my birthday I will totally take a shot to Ryan's birthday, too!)...but really we're calling it the 3rd anniversary of my 25th birthday, because I refuse to accept that 30 is slowly creeping up on me! I don't think anything could ease the pain of 28 like a box full of lovely from you (especially those slippers...old lady feet sure get cold)! So, pick me! pick me!

  124. Ryan doesn't like CAKE?!?!


    All I can think of is that is anti-American. Or maybe he's anti-delicous. Was he traumatized by cake, perhaps in another life? Either way, he has to be the only person who ever existed who doesn't like cake. Call Ripley's.

  125. Lauren! This giveaway is awesome! My birthday is October 31st, so I obviously need this cake to eat...not all at one time! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  126. I love that unicorn shirt! So funny.

    I didn't like cake for a LONG time until recently, and now I'm like, what the fuck was wrong with me my whole life?!

  127. I would have been really worried about marrying someone who doesn't like cake. You're so brave.

    So, this is the first time I've EVER posted on a blog that I read. And I shamelessly admit that it's because a) those shirts are amazing and b) I've been wearing my husband's same 5 too-small t-shirts since we got married two years ago and c) I am broke and have no money to buy new t-shirts. Am I whoring my words out with my commenting for free clothing? Perhaps. But I do in fact love this blog and it makes me laugh all the time which, when you're broke (see above) is important. Thank you, Lauren, for fabulousness in multiple realms!

  129. My last surprise was a $10,000 unexpected bonus from work. I expect your surprise to be just as awesome, if not better. (Challenge thrown!)

    I honestly would love everything in this package. Comfy slippers, cake, soft t-shirt? Throw in a couch and you've got a weekend package.

    ReplyDelete
  130. This is a brilliant idea for a giveaway!

    And, in general, I'm really like what you're doing with the blog since you left your job to work for yourself. I predict big things.

    ReplyDelete
  131. This is an awesome list of stuff. and Kathleen W up there I am totally with you I don't get a cake on my birthday unless I bake it myself or I can buy it myself. My spouse and our kids always get at least one cake/cupcake set (yes I said at least children have been known to have up to 3 celebrations).

    ReplyDelete
  132. Wait... so Ryan doesn't like Tshirts? What does he like?

    ReplyDelete
  133. What a fabulous set of prizes! I love the On/Off tee shirt - I think I will have to go get one of those just because. I wonder what the off button would look like? Oh, and the cake? Perfect for my wedding night - cuz you KNOW you aren't ever going to get enough cake from the ceremony itself!

    ReplyDelete
  134. This giveaway sounds like the lovely start to a weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  135. I would like to win these things. Is the winner chosen randomly or do you have to say something clever?

    ReplyDelete
  136. That cake looks so good I could smear it my my hair!!!!

    Sweet Jesus.

    ReplyDelete
  137. I recently found out I have to give up starch but I might take my risks with a cake that looks like that. Is it cheating on your husband if you hide a cake because he might eat it all? Again, will take my chances. Please enter me in the drawing!!

    ReplyDelete
  138. Who doesn't like cake?! That should be like a crime or something! (True story, my autocorrect changed 'something' to 'Somwthing', I apparently make that mistake A LOT). Also, this is my third attempt at commenting as the comment box kept freezing up. Dang computers!

  139. i need. those slippers. on my feet.

    ReplyDelete
  140. October 17th is my birthday! So I should totally win!

    ReplyDelete
  141. I totally need all of these!!!

    ReplyDelete
  142. Those slippers look amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  143. I could happily eat myself into a sugar coma while wearing comfy slippers and a snarky tee shirt. Just saying.

    ReplyDelete
  144. How can he not love those things? They're all ridiculously loveable. Shame.....

    ReplyDelete
  145. Is this a giveaway or Christmas? Oh, wait. Must be a giveaway considering what I usually get for Christmas is stuff I've already picked out for myself. LOVE the shirts! LOVE the slippers! LOVE the cake! Would happily post a photo of me wearing all 3 at once!!!!

    Lauren, I would so love a boxed DVD set of shark week, but will settle for the miserable t-shirts and the slippers (I am sure there is someone at home I can whack them with and throw them at), the cake.....as much as I would love to say that I would love to have a one of a kind food fight with it....I love cake too much to do that to and the surprise, well gee who the heck doesn't LOVE surprises!!! So pick me, PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Omg yes to all of the above!! Ryans cray cray!

    ReplyDelete
  148. I love that the cake is "for your bottom." Luckily, not even a scrumptious picture could tempt me to eat that much gluten! My roommates would adore, though :)

    ReplyDelete
  149. Oh, I love them all but especially the t-shirts! My husband is running the Marine Corps Marathon in a few weeks (as a veteran of the Marine Corps) and I've been trying to figure out how all the supporters coming out for him can have matching (and obviously, awesome) t-shirts...some of these would be perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  150. I would totally wear all the shirts and the slippers and eat the cake.

    that's the first day, what's next?

    ReplyDelete
  151. I nearly died when I saw the narwhal shirt. Oh Geez....

    ReplyDelete
  152. Gotta have those purple slippers...and also cake.

    ReplyDelete
  153. I love the t-shirts and the look of the cake (yum!) but alas, I live in the UK so I don't think the cake will make it over here. I love the fact that you do giveaways though, it's really fun x

    ReplyDelete
  154. Must have fuzzy slippers! I hate sock. this solves the sock problem whilst keeping my tootsies toasty! (and cake... mmmmm cake)

    ReplyDelete
  155. I wanna win! I love the slippers and the cray-cray t-shirt.

    ReplyDelete
  156. Yummy and warmie! Need to get those for the cold VT weather.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Wow, Ryan's least favorite things happen to be awesome! Please pick me so I can make Ryan's least favorite things also Brent(my Ryan)'s least favorite things... I so want to see his face when I try to wear those slippers in public while wearing the cray cray tee shirt with leftover cake on my face...
    he loves me anyhow

    Lauren,
    I' d love this, but not for me. I'd give it to my parents and my son. Mom is fighting cancer and dad, at 81, is her caretaker. If she's awake, so is he... They celebrated 52 years of marriage Monday and they love each other more now than ever.
    I'd give the shirts to my son because when we were at my parents' place Monday, he jumped in and started cleaning the house for my parents because they are too tired for anything more than basic upkeep.
    So, this would brighten my parents' spirits and reward my 12 year old for being so awesome. It would make me smile too... Something I do far too little lately.
    Thanks for listening and good luck to everyone.

    ReplyDelete
  161. Absolutely LOVE the look of that S'mores cake. It would maybe take away my woes from the hell that is the car accident of DOOM that I was in 2 weeks ago. If nothing else it would put me into a sugar coma for 20 minutes. So sign me up!

    ReplyDelete
  162. Great giveaway! I love that tshirt of the month club!

    ReplyDelete
  163. I've never commented before, but I've been reading your blog for some time now. I'm a huge Bloggess fan and your blog makes me giggle just as much as hers does. The bonus for me is that I'm moving to Chicago soon so I get some reassurance that there are awesomely weird girls like you there. I might find friends after all! I hope I win a prize, but either way, I'm glad I finally got the guts to comment.

    ReplyDelete
  164. I don't really like cake either. Although it isn't the cake part but the frosting. If I win though, no worries about that cake going to waste. I'm sure my husband would eat it.

    ReplyDelete
  165. Those uggs are actually cute. :) I wouldn't mind the t's they are pretty funny!

    ReplyDelete
  166. Is Ryan secretly a commie? ;) I think it is rather un-American of him to dislike all these wonderful creations, but I hope he has a wonderful birthday anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  167. WoodsCommaL10/10/2012

    No jaunty hats? Love the idea - and the slippers (the exact ones pictured).

    ReplyDelete
  168. I love UGGs, don't hate on me :) Plus that cake looks amazing. Pick me!

    ReplyDelete
  169. I LOVE BUSTED TEES. I am similar with my boyfriend in that I can't believe some of the things he doesn't like. We live in San Diego and he hates guacamole and avocados. CRAZYPANTS. He's lucky he's cute.

    ReplyDelete
  170. I love your blog. Mostly because it makes me feel okay about all the weird things I do to my husband (that I'm sure he secretly loves me for). Also because I really love to wear embarrassing t shirts when I'm with him in public, which is why this gift would make my life even better. :)

    ReplyDelete
  171. I love the blog and I would love to win! Handing in my English thesis soon, would be an awesome celebration :)

    ReplyDelete
  172. Man, all three prizes are amazing plus the bonus fourth of secret fun times! And now I really want some cake. Or cupcakes. Mini cupcakes! I won't feel bad for eating a whole cake worth of mini cupcakes because they are small and therefore automatically have less calories. Done and done. Mini cupcake time.

    ReplyDelete
  173. Haha. This has to be your best giveaway theme yet. And thank you, RYAN, for disliking so many of MY favorite things!

    ReplyDelete
  174. Wooooohooo! Happy birthday, Ryan! Apparently Ryan and I are both Libras since my birthday is the 17th, which also happens to be the day you end your giveaway, which means, obviously, I should win.

    PS I tweeted a link to you for a pair of shoes which aren't nearly as cool as the Zappos but close. You should A) check your tweets, B) buy a pair of those shoes, C) make me the winner so that D) we can get together and model our new shoes. Just sayin'

    That cake looks delicious! If I won it I would throw my 7 year old, 6 year old, and three month old boys at my husband and run with the cake to my bathroom where I would lock myself in until it was all gone. :) Also that ruffio shirt is THE BEST!

    ReplyDelete
  177. It's inhuman to not like cake. Maybe Ryan is secretly a robot or an alien.

    ReplyDelete
  178. I think Ryan's least favorite things are my favorite things! It's always funny for me to read your posts when you mention RYAN because my almost 4-year-old son is Ryan and I feel like I say "RYAN!" a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  179. Slippers I can wear to the grocery? SIGN ME UP.

    T-Shirt of the month club? Hell yes. I've wanted to be a member of an "of the month club" ever since I saw National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. If the t-shirts fall through, a Jelly of the Month Club would also be appreciated.

    Happy Birthday to Ryan! My husband's birthday was exactly a week ago. :)

    ReplyDelete
  181. Your husband doesn't like cake, mine doesn't like icing...ice cream...whipped cream...all the good stuff you put ON cake. So not right. So I need to win some cake covered with icing that he won't eat. Because his birthday is this month that's what loving wives do...torture their husbands.

    What a lovely giveaway!

    Though I must admit, Shark Week 2012 and a bottle of sriracha is not my idea of a bad time. Ryan's on to something there...

    This would be my first ever of-the-month club membership, I have cold feet and my bottom needs some more ... of it ... so this would be the perfect prize for me!

    And I love surprises too, in all shapes and forms. Thanks, Lauren!

  185. These are all great gifts! That cake looks awesome! My other half doesn't like cookies - weirdo.

    ReplyDelete
  186. My co-worker just sent me a link to a funny shirt this morning but I never want to spend the money on one. So the shirt club would be fun!

    ReplyDelete
  187. Sharon from Bama10/10/2012

    Love all the prizes listed. Throw my name in the ring please. And keep up the awesome blogs - they've gotten me through many a tough day. You rock!

    ReplyDelete
  188. I would love any of that...the t-shirt club sounds awesome!

    I found your blog via The Bloggess and I'm loving every minute of it! You are hilarious!

  189. These look awesome, and October is my birthday month =)

    Oh my!!! It is so lucky for me that Ryan's least favorite things are some of my favorites! I love funny shirts, really NEED new slippers and love cake (it should be it's own food group). Can't you just imagine one of your readers (or ME) at home lounging in new slippers with a fancy new T-shirt eating cake?

    ReplyDelete
  191. Mmmmmm. Cake :] How does Ryan not enjoy fuzzy slippers or funny shirts??

    Happy birthday to him!

    ReplyDelete
  192. Oh my goodness, Lauren! I usually leave any commenting/prize winning to people who actually know you or who have something important and/or funny to say. But, I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to wear a snarky tee with comfy slippers while eating a super awesome cake and who doesn't love a surprise? BTW - It is less than one month 'til my 40th birthday and I think, no, I KNOW this would be the most awesomest birthday present ever (and I've asked my husband for my very own Beyonce!)

    ReplyDelete
  193. Slippers and cake?? Oh so sold, please put me down! Also Happy Almost Birthday, Ryan. And happy 3/4 birthday to you :)

    ReplyDelete
  194. Ooh, this giveaway sounds fun!! And all of those things are perfect! I want cake right now! Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  195. How could someone not like cake!!! Inconceivable!
