Chipmunks. I’m so excited I could just pee.
But I won’t.
I don’t think.
I now have enough GoGuiltyPleasures slap bracelet photos to do not one, but two Slap Bracelet Comeback posts! So, continuing on in the order in which they were received…
#1 – Olivia from A Single Blog
Olivia and I are new buds. I was excited to hear from her a few weeks ago, requesting a slap bracelet and bloggy feedback. She reminded me of the best part of blogging – connecting with other writers.
#2 – Misty from Misty’s Laws
Misty really wants everyone to put their best foot forward, especially her family. She reminds people to stay on track (and out of stretch pants) in her always-amusing Friday fashion disaster feature, Weekly Whacked. For even more hilarity, check out this recent post that is as humorous as it is horrifying.
#3 – Erin from Catstache
You may remember Erin from her recent victory as a runner-up in the GoGuiltyPleasures gift basket giveaway. Her guilty pleasure submission, along with her AMAZING photo accompaniment, were simply breathtaking. She is a true chipmunk.
And her cat, Alex, may just be one of the cutest pets I’ve ever seen. Even if he is trying to mangle the greatest fashion look since side-ponies.
More slap bracelet pics to come next week! By the way, I still have some slap bracelets left, so email me ASAP., a.k.a., As Soon As Perfection-interests-you.

What kind of guilty pleasures are you engaging in this weekend?
P.S. – I didn’t pee. …Yet. I think we’re safe.

Yay! I’m all famous now. 😉
It is a testament to how much my family is accustomed to my craziness that when I threw slap bracelets around their ankles and took pics, not one of them asked me what on earth I was doing. Not one. Yep, we are that kinda family. It also helps to do it while the youngins are distracted by Angry Birds, I guess.
Ha! I love that. You should see how far you can take it. Like, tying them to the chair… Oh. Am I the only one who would try to tie my kids to a chair to see if they’d notice?
Alex is EATING the bracelet. Disqualified! Just kidding. Esme did the same thing.
Misty, when we go to Cinnabon, are we wearing bracelets on ankles or wrists?
Well, I DO have four so . . . both? 😉
LOL! I know – he is REALLY enjoying some slap bracelet. They probably do make pretty cool cat toys, but do they freak out at the ‘snap’?
It would make me so very happy if ya’ll wore slap bracelets to Cinnabon.
Today is my blogging day, so I’m trying to see if I can comment on all your pages. I do have a real question for you, though. As the proprietor (can you say that about a free blog?) of a “wildly popular website,” I think a lot of us would like to hear you describe your creative process. How long does it take you to write a blog? When do you typically write? How many times do you obsessively go back over your post looking for typos before hitting that scary “Publish” button? (This has nothing to do with me, BTW.) Thanks.
haha Louise, you crack me up! I feel so wild and popular! 😉
Once I have an idea for a post, it usually doesn’t take too long to write it (less than an hour). The lengthy part is doctoring up photos and formatting, because I like my posts to be visually appealing and (hopefully!) easy to read. For ones with a lot of pictures, or where I’m ‘making’ pictures, it can take 2-3 hours before it’s ready to go. (For ones with videos I’ve made, I’ve spent many, many hours on them. But I love doing it!) I try to post 3x/week, usually Mon, Wed, Fri. Sometimes I feel like I’m bursting with ideas, but definitely can struggle to come up with new and fresh topics. I usually write during the day, on my lunch break or weekend mornings. I seem to be most inspired when I’m supposed to be doing something else 😉 Lastly, I usually ‘preview’ my post at least 4-5 times before actually publishing it, then a few more times after I publish, just to be sure.
Thanks for the great questions! I’m always more than happy to talk about writing/blogging!
Thanks! I’m having a blast. If you’re interested in a slap bracelet to call your own, just let me know! 🙂
I do want one! How do I get it Is it too late?
Definitely not too late! All ya gots to do is email me your address! Julie.Davidsoki@yahoo.com
Oops! Can’t spell my own name. I swear I’m not drunk. Yet. It’s Julie.Davidoski@yahoo.com
I’ll pee for you. I’ll just stand up too suddenly from my computer chair.
Ha! Excellent. I mean, SOMEONE had to pee after this post.
Alright. I think this means I need to outfit my family in slap bracelets and email it to you this weekend! Plus its my husband’s birthday tomorrow! Slap bracelets as decorations!
Yesssss. I can’t WAIT! And happy birthday to your hubs!!
I just got my package and — for real — my son and his friends immediately ate the Pop Tarts. Some girl ate the bacon chocolate. I didn’t get one bloody square. The girl across the street took the chipmunk sticker, and then everyone got bread and laid into the nutella. Sheesh! I still have the pop up book and the mustache and my slap bracelets. I will send you a pic. Thank you for the box of deliciousness. I can’t believe most of the edibles are gone. Well, I have your doggy to look at. Have mercy. 😉
Who took, nay, STOLE the bacon-chocolate?! Her ‘tweeny behind is MINE! Oh. No. She. DIDN’T.
You mean you posed in that chipmunk bikini and didn’t get ANY chocolate bacon? I am sad for you. (still very jealous)
But I don’t eat bacon.
Don’t feel too bad for me.
I seem to be doing a pretty good job on the Nutella.
That bracelet will be mine. Oh, yes. It will be mine. My daughter has a snap bracelet and I often find myself sneaking into her room at night and stealing it away so I could have it for myself, if only for a couple of hours. I think it’s time I get my own.
My guilty pleasure this weekend is I’m going to watch the last few episodes of the last season of Big Love. I don’t care what the critics say about how great it is because I think the show in fact sucks. It’s one big drama-filled soap opera. But I am completely in love with it and I don’t care who knows it.
Oh god. great. Yet another show I have to see so I can pretend to hate it while secretly loving every second of it. Wonderful. Thanks, Angie.
You won’t be sorry, Darla — you won’t be sorry that you watched it and you won’t be sorry that you hate it. It’s worth every bit of self-loathing you’ll feel as you sit in your room all day watching all five seasons back-to-back.
Like Mad Men? Because I just saw a recent episode of that and I feel so ashamed and just dirty. (the self-loathing thing is something I do well…)
The Megan cleaning the apartment part? The Pete wanting to be called “king” by a prostitute part? Or the Peggy in the theater with a stranger part? I hope I didn’t throw out any spoilers here.
Yes, yes, yessssss! All of it!
Well, the most disturbing so far for me was when Draper’s daughter walks in on Roger getting uh….”taken care of” by Megan’s French mother. They crossed a line there. (but I will still watch it)
Yes, that part was the absolute worst. I think it sucked out (oh, God…no pun intended, I swear) every last shred of libido from my body. Horrifying!
ahhhhh!!! Haha! I could say something else but I won’t. (and it is KILLING ME)
So now I need to watch Mad Men?? And thank you for letting us hijack your blog, Jules! Your Welcome!
Yes, you most definitely do. It’s amazing writing, great sets, actors. It’s got everything. Drinking, smoking, wild sex. You know, all those things none of us ever do anymore so we can watch this show instead.
You got that right! I’m gonna have to watch it. MLB will love it, too.
I watched four seasons in one month to catch up. (sorry for hijacking,Jules!)
ha ha! Any time! I love seeing my chipmunks chatting about guilty pleasures where I can read along and nod approvingly 😉
Angie. You know I cannot WAIT to outfit you with a slap bracelet 😉
I’m afraid to watch Big Love. Because I know exactly what will happen.
That cat is so cool … and I don’t really like cats!
I think Alex could be the poster cat for things like, “Convincing Your Spouse They Really Do Want One.”
P.S. – I can’t wait to post your slap bracelet pictures in the next round (this week)! Thanks again!
I just called to say “I suck,” I received an AWESOME GGP SB in the PM (postal mail) and didn’t even call to say I love you, er, send a photo.
Anyway, I hope it’s a small comfort to know that I feel guilty and cretinous. Will send a better thank you soon. Till then, thank you!
Ha! No need to feel THAT kind of guilt here at GoGuiltyPleasures 🙂 I’m so happy it arrived safe and sound! It’s like I can hear the onslaught of compliments you’ve been getting all the way over here in Jersey.
aww… so true… but you didn’t warn me that people would try to claw it from my body and I’d have to use defensive measures!!!
I almost feel like a celebrity! I’ve made all my friends check out your blog to see that I was mentioned in it haha
Thanks for all support!
Yea!! I knew it felt like a real party up in this piece.
Thank YOU! 🙂
Evvery time I see you wrote a new post I get so excited because I know I am going to laugh my butt off. Well my butt’s still there, but I definitely laughed!
That is SO chipmunkianly awesome of you to say. Thank you very much! 🙂
Oh, Gawd!!! You used the word I made up!! I’m so proud of you! 🙂 I owe you slap bracelet pictures. Lately, my guilty pleasure is procrastinating!
Yes!! I want to use it ALL The time (and think of you when I do)! And dang, I should have given you credit here – I meant to the first time I used it on my blog! 🙂
Can you find a gypsy to wear the slap bracelet?! OMG. No pressure, but that would make my life complete.
That would make my life complete, as well!! I’m pretty sure I saw some gypsys in Micheal’s a while back. They were being thrown out for rowdy behavior! I’ll keep looking for a friendly, calm, approachable gypsy to pose with one of your bracelets!!
Hey, the package just arrived yesterday! Thanks again. The bacon/chocolate was snatched up by a certain pregnant woman living in my home before I’d even finished unwrapping it. The flask may be safe, though… And thanks for including the autographed pic of Uncle Jesse. Now I don’t have to sulk.
Sweeeeet. That makes me so happy that Mrs. B-Man got to have bacon-chocolate whilst with child. (Did she like it??)
And I seriously can’t tell you how many times over the past ten years I’ve tried to make that card ‘work.’ I was sure Jenn would be its eventual recipient. But it knew its moment was coming.
Me want one slap bracelet too.. how can I acquire one? 😦
I would LOVE to send you one! All I need is your address (JKSchnedeker@yahoo.com)!
Aw… those are lovely. Sad to be in the Philippines. 😦
Thanks, Karla! And you are in luck – I’m MORE than happy to ship worldwide! Not counting the U.S., slap bracelets have found happy homes in China, England, Canada and even Pakistan so far! All I need is your address (JKSchnedeker@yahoo.com)! 🙂
Omg! How can I send you my address? Can I post it here? Thank you so much! hugs*
It would be my pleasure! If you can email me your address, that would be great! It’s JKSchnedeker@yahoo.com, or you can use my contact page: http://goguiltypleasures.com/contact/
OMG, your kitty is so cute. Reminds me of my own. Love it 🙂
I wish I could take credit for Alex, but he belongs to Erin at catstache.wordpress.com. Isn’t he gorgeous?! 🙂
That is a great tip especially to those new to
the blogosphere. Simple but very accurate information… Thanks for
sharing this one. A must read article!
