Shes.No.Martha…or is she?

February 22, 2010

I can’t believe I forgot to post about the fact that I WON a contest last week.  Yep…you want to know what it was?  On Martha Stewart Living Radio (Sirius 112), they had a daily giveaway to see “How Martha Were You” over the weekend. Yes, oh yes…I had channeled my inner Martha like you wouldn’t believe.  

I drove my husband’s car that day (He has Sirius, I have XM).  I listened to the rules, contemplated my productivity and did it…I called in. The host, Betsy, and I discussed the merits of Columbus, Ohio for a bit for her upcoming trip, and then I launched into my list: 

  1. Made heart-shaped pancakes made with my wonderful Williams-Sonoma Pancake pen
  2. Worked on a little sewing project for my god-daughter’s birthday (to be posted soon!)
  3. Finished several organization projects
  4. Handcrafted a pair of glasses for the “Glasses Party”
  5. Baked a cake and cupcakes for the above “Glasses Party”
  6. Made Homemade Chicken Mac & Cheese

 I thought I would seal the deal with the Glasses Party.  I mean c’mon — sympathy points for having to get a 3-yr old boy to wear glasses?!? 

And, about 5 hours later, I got the call – I WON!!!!  And, the prize?  A coffee mug.  Yep – how freakin’ non-Martha is that?  How about a signed copy of a book?  A hand-crocheted coaster? 

What do YOU think would have been a more suitable Martha-esque prize?

    I’d say a trip to NYC to see Martha live! You should send emails to her show about your blog! Then if you get to go you have to take me….remember Amy P. calls me Martha (even though I am far from it these days!)

    A pre planted organic vegetable garden for the wonderful meals you prepare for your family would be a good gift. Martha showing up with her hoe and rake weekly would also be a welcomed addition.

      Shes.No.Martha’s Mom wins the award for Best Reply. Except Martha would have to live outback and prepare (daily) the bounty of that garden. And serve it up on my china, damnit!
