Welcome Pee Wee

If this is your first time hearing about the Mommy Reality Challenge we are so glad you are joining this great community of moms who participate in our bi-weekly challenges that showcase all the fun, crazy, and sometimes overwhelming moments that are in every mom’s life!

Please don’t just read. This is an INTERACTIVE post! Come join in all the fun!

The Rules are Simple!

        1. We will announce the theme.
        2. You will write a post or take a pic, post it to the social media account of your choice with the hashtag #mommyreality and then link it up to this blog post!
        3. Then in two weeks, we will announce our favorites and award a meme to the winner. The winner can then co-host the next challenge with us!

Just a little background on how our challenges are selected- Jen and Celeste take turns writing the post and creating the winning meme from the last challenge.

This week it’s Celeste’s turn! So, let’s get down!!

Last week, Jen asked us all to look out our windows and snap a photo of our view! We saw some gorgeous backyards in all kinds of weather, but there can be only one winner!

The winner of Mommy Reality Challenge 31: A Room with a View is…

Jennifer of The Deliberate Mom!

Last week… a beautiful thing happened. A Target shopping cart happened to roll along the walkway outside Jennifer’s townhouse when she looked outside the window to snap a pic, and I was so jealous because I love Target, that I had to declare her the winner!

So, Congratulations, Jennifer! Here is your meme, and we hope you join us in two weeks to co-host with us!

      Yay, I hope you can link up :)

      Sometimes it seems more like determining what is actually working right in our homes than the other way around!! Right now my refrigerator sounds like a chicken and I have no idea why!

  1. Woohoo! Target for the win! LOL

    Okay, now everyone knows I live in the slums….

    I hope people will look upon the Target shopping cart and think “if only”. May it inspire others to work hard and be steadfast… eventually, one day, we will live in a world where everyone gets their own Target shopping cart.

    Seriously though, thanks ladies.

    Wishing you a lovely weekend.

      Oh that view is stunning, breathtaking and when the sunrise or sunset happens I cannot imagine the amazing glint as the red of the sun and the cart mesh together…..

      It really is an ‘if only” kind of picture!

      You are the best and I am so happy to have you on the #mommyreality train again, you busy lady. I will try and come up with something good for the next challenge!

  2. Our master shower is broken. Well, it’s not really broken it just doesn’t have hot water. The rest of the house does, but not the master shower. Need to get that fixed.

    What a delightful meme. Tons of fun.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

      Eek, no hot water!! Is it warm right now where you live, because even in Southern Az it would make for a miserable morning to have to shower in cold water! Here’s to hoping you can get that fixed stat!

      I made my kids watch Pee Wee last week with me and only the 10 year old boy thought it was funny! I grew up on it as well and wanted them to enjoy it along side me! Oh well, I guess some things don’t translate so well across generations…..

      We would love to have you join in the fun and share what’s broke in your neck of the woods!

  3. ha! I love the winner. I love the shopping cart too, though.
    I wish I hadn’t been in my stupid data entry fog because I would have entered. Out my window is a TARDIS shed disguised by snow.

  5. I absolutely LOVE the whole Pee Wee Herman theme! I don’t think I ever missed an episode of Pee Wee’s Playhouse. Freshman year of high school we nicknamed our bus driver Large Marge… She totally hated ALL of us kids. Once she just decided to NOT come pick us up for school. Oh, and she drove directly into a fence once. Craziness!

    I was secretly hoping Jennifer would win the last challenge because well, it’s Target! ;-) Target is one of the stores in my $100 Club. My sister and I came up with that because we can NEVER leave that store without spending at least $100! I have been banned from shopping there more than once a month though. LOL Congratulations Jennifer!

    I’ll have to figure out what is broken around here for this challenge because for the first time like EVER everything is working… It really is a fluke because usually it seems like everything is broken. But… I know I just jinxed myself. LOL

    As always, thank you for hosting #MommyReality! <3

    Much love,

    Lysa xx

    1. Ooh that would have been a scary bus driver!! Plus how did she keep a job if she was that bad??

      I watched the movie with my kids a few weeks ago and only the 10 year old thought it was funny, but they all did laugh at the Large Marge scene!

      You are sooo right, Target is the $100 dollar store. Well that and Costco for me!
