Weekly Winners: May 18-24



Blender bonding:


Aren't they cute together?


An oxymoron, doncha think?

Feel my pain. And the day after I took this shot, it went up another 10 cents. No lie.


Birthday cake (so we don't end on a downer):


For other Weekly Winners participants, go here.

Aw, the blender saga continues, and those are super cute. The whole gas situation is getting stupid, cruel, painful and beyond belief.

Kat said...

Oy. I was just griping about paying $4.06 yesterday! That's awful!

My husband just installed a hydrogen generator in his truck - can double mpg! I'm excited about that!

jientje said...

I love those first two pictures, they have such a feeling of togetherness and family ...

Kelley said...

Stop your bitchin' I just converted it and we are paying over SIX BUCKS a gallon here in Oz.

*boggle*

tiff said...

I love that last photo and the first two as well.
Yeah, petrol is expensive everywhere. Time for some garbage fuelled vehicles, i think.

Immoral Matriarch said...

Oh My GOSH - SUCH an oxymoron.

HRH said...

Love the blender bonding. I bet it was yummy too.

Ugh on the gas thing.

Happy cake eating.

Happy Campers said...

Oh, the gas thing is just sad. I feel your pain :)

Love the blender bonding. VERY cute

That is totally an oxymoron if I ever saw one!! It's getting so I don't know if we're going to be able to afford my husband's commute to work anymore.

Jenty said...

I think Thrifty should change their name!

Punk Rock Mom said...

Happy Birthday!! And yes the gas prices are outrageous.

abritdifferent said...

Sad when it's cheaper to buy a gallon of milk...

Love the pics, except that one!

karisma said...

Geez I thought the gas was expensive down here! I think its time you started riding your bike around or walking maybe?

I retract that, just read Kelley's comment so we are paying more anyway. And yes we have been trying to walk everywhere we can.

Pamela said...

looks like a fruit smoothie....

yup.. gas prices kept me home on this weekend.

But -- I'll be traveling when that baby arrives.

Burfica said...

it's crazy, our gas has been going up every 2 to 3 days.

Crazed Mom said...

Your girl is adorable and I love her hair. They do look lovely together. Not an oxymoron but a complete and total insult. Soooooooooooo stupid and don't tell me the oil companies aren't gouging us all.

The cake looks yummy.

Janet said...

I'll stop complaining now. We're up to 3.99 (at least on Saturday it was 3.99). But 2 weeks ago today it was 3.69. The gas stations have just stopped putting the prices on the signs since it changes so often.
And Happy Birthday to J-Bear.

I cry every time I fill my tank :( It's getting to the point where I don't want to leave the house unless I can walk or bike to my destination.

Love your photos! That cake looks lovely :)

K said...

Oh please please please can I play this feul pricing game?

I'm in Sydney, Australia.

I paid AU$1.51 per litre of feul yesterday.

Various internet conversion sites tell me that.

AU$1.51 = US$1.47 (yay dollar!)

1 litre = 0.264172052 US gallons

Which works out at US$5.56 per gallon.

Ouch!
