1 year anniversh!

january 21st, 2007 was the date that WORD TO YOUR MOTHER first came into this world.

although not life changing for any of you, (as it SHOULD be.) it's been a wonderful journey right from the beginning for me.

i've "met" and interacted with so many different people and have truly enjoyed blogging--so i want to celebrate 365 days by doing WORD TO YOUR MOTHER 1 YEAR ANNIVERSH giveaway~

it's your luckiest day, ever, as i've included some of my favorite things and items that i have blogged about during the past year. i think you will be psyched when you see this most lucrative and utterly stupendous giveaway booty:
(heh. heh. she said 'booty.')




seasonals (valentines in this case)


25 $ i tunes

lip balm or "chappy" if you live at our house





'a-okay' symbol

& finally, something new: 25 $ pottery barn certificate


anyone can play and all are welcome--simply leave a comment stating one thing on this blog (you might have to think REAL HARD) that you've enjoyed so you can stroke my ego. if you've been a silent stalker and have never felt the need to comment, i VALIDATE YOU. but hope you'll come out and enter. I TRIPLE-DOG DARE YOU.

want two chances? pimp me out on your blog~not required for my love, however.

the winner will be drawn on day 365--wednesday, january 21st


thank you all for 1 year of blogging bliss!

I love the catalog for men stuff.

Great giveaway! You've been missed!

Pedaling said...

thanks. it's utterly, i'll remember that.

easy question. i've enjoyed many things but the one thing i loved most was the first post i read on your blog - the conversation overheard while trying on pants at old navy!
(also, kinda dig the confession booth, too)

Vanessa said...

I would have to say confession booth! That was my first introduction. And then when you brought it back, I was glued to the screen for a week!

You are on my sidebar, so two for me!

PS, glad you are back!

Misty said...

"Merry Christmas shitter was full"

Love it...Yes, I have been a silent stalker, but your dare was to much and I had to come out...Thanks for making me giggle so many times.

Stephanie said...

OK, I just love your sense of humor. We are the same age so your references to your childhood and teenage years often crack me up! Keep up the good work!

Bagiera said...

hmmm, where to start. I will probably pick the music selection. I put it on when I'm working on the comp!! Also, gotta love the giveaway's, even though I haven't won. YET. But I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to!!!

Aaron, Kelli, and Kaylan said...

My personal favorite would definitely have to be the international male posts! I came out of the stalking closet a few months ago and just love your blog.

Mikki said...

happy anniversh!!
One thing? There are so many things I like about your blog though!!
I think what I like the most, (and it's not one post in particular that I'm going to mention) is that there's lots of pictures. :o)
sometimes it's nice to just look at the pics, and not have to do a TON of reading. I love that about you! You post just the right amount of text.
The 21st is the day before my birthday--wouldn't it be AWESOME if I won?

ern said...

i like thankful thursdays, i heart the random items you find and put on your "i want" lists...but the thing that first drew me here were the random WTF posts that make me laugh out loud.

Kristen said...

I visit your blog first thing every morning to get a good laugh and start my day with a smile. Sign me up! And I'll be "pimping you out" on my blog.

tammy said...

There's just too much to love about Mindi's blog. The International Male, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, the Motivational Posters, and of course the contests! Count me in. Pimping you out right now.

Brooke said...

I love the motivational posters, too! The confession booth was also my first into, and I was constantly visiting your blog to see if there were any new ones. And I LOVE funnyfunnyfunny randomness. Really, your blog is so fun to read.

mary elizabeth said...

my fav was the confession booth, but i love all your random finds! i love the silly posters, the crazy + fun products, and to boot, you are hilarious.

now don't you think i deserve the prize?! :D

Misty said...

I could really really use a good give-a-way win. I know I always say that... but this time, I'm serious! Count me in.

Marci said...

Love all your fantabulous vacations! The JW calls my name every time!
The chappy is sounding really good right now..my lips are killin with this cold dry weather we're having.

K and/or K said...

I loved the Rick Astly cake!

Happy New Year!!

Lesley said...

I have to win this. Happy Anniversary!

LN said...

Happy (almost) Blogiversary!

One thing, huh? How can I narrow it down to only one thing? The Funny Funny Randomness, the great dance moves, the What I want for Christmas ideas, the 1980s tv/movie flashbacks -- they're all great. I guess I could sum it up by saying the one thing that keeps me coming back is the sense of humor & how it's demonstrated.

Trying to Stay Calm! said...

I l♥ve the Keep Calm Rock on sign on your side bar! It is perfect as I am trying to stay calm :) Please count me in on this wonderful giveaway! Have a great day! ♥ Hugs :)

Tiffany said...

Active stalker here. How could I ever choose just one post that I love? Happy anniversary! Your blog has brightened my life significantly! And I don't think I should be eligible to win the giveaway because I already won one of your incredible giveaways.

Breakfast for Dinner said...

Congrats!!! My fave posts that make me smile are those funny pics you post with the sayings underneath. Love those!

queenbee4 said...

I love your blog! I just found it; but I think now I'll be an official stalker!

Tanja said...

I don't know where to start. I think you had me at International Male or was it the 80's music, or Mindy no likes. You pulled me in and here I am! i ♥ you.

I will shout you out too! I am all over this one!!

Martha H. said...

I *heart* all the fun products you show. I seriously bought the Schticks from Urban Outfitters for my SIL and she LOVED them.

I *heart* your blog because it makes me smile.

I also *heart* that I won the last give away.

tiburon said...

I need to win this. Bad.

Let's just put aside our agreement and you can give me this one.

Puh-lease!!

Oh and you are totally getting a shout out :)

tiburon said...

Oh and the best post you ever did was the Tiburon Stalker post. Where you put your head on Adam's body and you made a voodoo doll out of the hair in your shower drain and ate it.

I still get warm fuzzies just thinking about it.

Kris said...

I love the pictures...sometimes I just need a giggle at work and I know that I go to your blog for a minute I will get anything from a giggle to a good belly laugh. Thank you so much for sharing your blog, I love it.

Anonymous said...

I love the fact you are the same age as me- you take me back to
Depeche Mode
The Chrysler Cordoba I drove in Highschool
Movies like Sixteen Candles-my alltime favorite show as naughty as it is!
Mall bangs
and last but not least- the "popped collar" picture!
Thanks for making me laugh daily!

Misty said...

I meant to leave my name with the above comment! sorry.

Jillyn said...

I come here for my daily dose of laughter and love your total randomness.

Holly O. said...

Yes please!!!

Amanda said...

Confession booth.

Linked over from my friend Suzy @ Eagarbrood the first time and forwarded it on to my bff Vanessa. . . she too was hooked. Have you on my google-reader.
Congrats on one year...can't wait to see what the year brings!

rachel said...

Your blog HAS changed my life, significantly :) I have made my own stalkerish pics of you and I together, but am too shy to post them....hee hee, just kidding! But I do love you and your little blog too!

rachel said...

Oh Yeah, and a shout out is in Full Effect, yo!

Renee said...

Oh yes! That PB card has my name on it.

I personally love your side bar. That's what caught my eye from moment one. Pop up collar and cowbell, baby!

Ida said...

Happy Anniversary I knew I loved your blog when you incorporated ghetto slang in to your posts. It was love at first read. OH and I so want those skull candy headphones. Richie and G look so cool with theirs.

Lamchops said...

I think that the part that I have most enjoyed has to be the fact that when I comment I get to be a smart-A all I want. But since Kristin outed me & my covert-name I have to own up. Too bad. Sometimes I laugh soo much my hubby thinks I have lost it. It is fun to peek into your little pet project once in a while too.

Brenda said...

Can we say EVERYTHING! I've been a silent stalker for some time. The triple dog dare brought me out. Consider your blog pimped on mine.

Krista said...

I'm not sure of the exact title...but I always look forward to those male catalogue posts. the men are so dreamy and suave

veronica said...

I love to see "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" come up in my google reader!

I'm pimping you out on my sidebar!
(Do I need to comment twice?)
Happy Anniversary!

Christie said...

I feel like I've been reading you for longer than a year. Has it really only been that long? Please add me to your drawing, and thanks for turning the comments back on. I've missed not being able to say something.

JMadd said...

I love your blog because it is not lame, it is funny, and you can't go wrong with a title like Word to Your Mother.

Kami said...

Holy Giveaway! This is the Mother of them all. How can you not just love everything about the Mind?! I am gonna have to say that you always have the best funny finds.

Happy 1 year!

hoLLy said...

Gretchen said...

AWESOME. Congrats on the milestone!

MiaKatia said...

Wow! This is one heck of a giveaway. I think my favorite was meeting you in person, then seeing our happy faces up on your blog ;) I also can't get enough of the international male (tee hee hee).

Staheli said...

I liked the story about the car alarm going off.

Cassie said...

Cassie said...

Melissa said...

Oh how I have missed you WORD!
Only blogging a year? You seem like such a pro! I LOVED the confessional booth and am anxiously awaiting the next one!
And, there will be a shout out for you going on my blog later today.

Aimee said...

I'm glad your posting again!!! Finally I have something in my reader to read!

I'd love to win at least one giveaway in my life. PLEASE! :)

Vennesa said...

My favortie was Death By Manilow. I missed the confessional booth. So could you please do another one?
Thanks!

Sher said...

I came over from Tammy. I've never read your blog before, but apparently you rock, because I just read through all the above comments, and people see to love you. So, can I enter your drawing anyway?
I promise, I'll come back!

Molly said...

This is my first blogging comment ever. This giveaway is booty-licious!

Tammy said...

Great blog too funny!!!

Eudea-Mamia said...

That Perfect Kiss is on your playlist!!

Excuse me now, I HAVE to dance...

Oh, congrats on one year! Sent via Time Flies and Tammy.

rinehart said...

I forgot to mention my favorite thing in your blog. I loved the different scenes from a Christmas Vacation, it's one of my all time favorite movies.
But my all time favorite thing is the confession booth!

heidi said...

hmmm, one thing? perhaps that i keep coming back to read more even though i have never won a giveaway.
or
your love of gas station nachos?
perhaps your maternal witticisms?
the slang of the day?
is my nose brown enough yet?

Amy said...

Favorite is the International Male, and the confession booth...I need to win this... or I might need to divulge ALL the secrets from Vegas. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas...IF I am the big winner! Oh...yeah that means you could tell on me too...Never MInd!

TIM & MISTY said...

Okay... I want entered! And... although I am new to your blog, I love that your humor kept me intriged enough to read on and on and on. Thanks for the humor (I needed it today)! :)

Erin said...

Your sidebar is so cool, I kind of feel not worthy to even read your blog. Then again, I hope that even a teensy part of your coolness rubs off on me when I read your blog.

(P.S. My husband thinks you are awesome because of "more cowbell."

Brooks said...

I love your motivational posters!

Nikohle said...

I seriously look forward to stalking your blog daily, and have yet to be disappointed. My favorite part of your blog is the way you describe each experience. I can picture your reactions to them all. The car wreck in SLC, the rental van. Your love for the hoodie you had been "coveting for years" Russ agreed you should buy in Park City. Thanks Mindi for an AWESOME year of hysterical laughs. Keep it up.

The Ladd Family said...

Okay, I have been a silent stalker. I found your blog through a friend only last week and I am such a stalker I am telling friends at work how funny you are!!! My favorite thus far would have to be,"God's gift to Women"! I laughed the entire day over those photos and into the next morning! I just started a blog myself on Dec 26th,2008 and you inspire me!!!

Judi said...

There are so many things that Rock about you Mindi! How can anyone narrow it down to just one?

Confession Booth was da bomb...
International Male~need I say more?
Music~to die for
Posters~fabulous

Congrats one the 1 year mark :0)

Oh, and I will be shoutin' ya out as loud as I can...

Liz said...

I have been reading your blog for a little while, but a silent stalker for comments!! I posted you and linked you on my blog lizhapari.blogspot.com.

Liz

devri said...

Confession booth... I was hooked..

But then again, you had me at Hello.

Kristi said...

One thing?! Honey, there has been many more than just "one tihng" I have enjoyed on your blog, but I will say among the MANY things I have enjoyed is your wit and your demotivational posters. I am so glad you blog, my friend.

Amanda said...

Two words: Confession Booth. Rusti shared that with me. Looking forward to more!

Lisa Loo said...

I am new here--just came from Tammy's blog--where have you been all my blog life??!! So far--I've only read all the International Mah-hale posts and if I don't go to the bathroom soon its going to get ugly. You are hilarious!! I WILL be back!

Penny said...

Mindi, I found your blog through Jillyn Wells' blog today. I was surprised to see it was you. I met you this summer at your High School reunion. I am Joel Beckstrand's wife. I love your blog. It's hillarious! I especially love all of the 80's things on here. Depeche Mode Rcoks!!

Vera said...

Love your blog. It makes my day.

Laura said...

My absolute favorite post was the confession booth! I laughed for about 5 hours straight and my son had a wet diaper all morning because I was too addicted to it to get off the computer!! Thanks for all your funny posts, your blog makes my day happy! :)

Mickelle's Minute said...

Wow, first time I have entered. I love your blog because I grew up in St. George, but now live in a town, far far away (and 20 years behind), so I love your witty posts about things on the web, but I also love your regular posts about St. George, your family and friends because it reminds me of home. Plus, I sometimes use your playlist in the background when I am working. Keep up the great work!

{Annie N.} said...

Lots and lots of laughs! Maybe the exposer of the creepy doll house and other funny thing that some of us don't dare blog about. Also I like how you are honest with your feeling like saying your boobs were to big. Makes me happy to know that others have insecurities. :)
Love the blog, glad you started it up. :)

Suzie said...

Awe. Mind. LOVE YOU!

I happen to really enjoy the confession booth. Even though it made me sad & scared.

Loni said...

Mims, I love your sense of humor (when used appropriately, of course). And any family dirty laundry...but I'm holding a few secrets of my own just in case I need to retaliate :P

steveandsteph said...

YOu always have the BEST blog giveaways. I really can't see me being lucky enough to win TWICE!!! But, of course, it's worth a shot!

daisy said...

Please.

Aimee said...

Love love love International Male... my absolute fav! Congratulations on your anniversary... quite the milestone!

Seth, Sarah and the kids said...

CJ, the Purple Diva said...

I loved the international men's catalog...and the motivational posts...and the confession booths...matter of fact...I've loved just about everything on here!
I'm gonna shout you out on my blog page!

nikkicrumpet said...

I think the giant stuffed microbe was the first post I ever read of yourse....I have no clue why it took me so long to find you. I'm old and slow. I knew instantly that anyone who would celebrate a giant microbe was gonna be good for a lot of laughs. And you haven't let me down!

ang :o) said...

You're blog rocks my socks. Please pick me. I will worship you forever. Or maybe just really like you for a bit. :)

Paige and family said...

I love everything about your blog. I love your sense of humor. I like the one post you did of how you thought that Bella should donate blood to Edward. I had just started reading the books when I saw that. It cracked me up. I like your post like that. I am going to give you a shout out on my blog. I really want this giveaway!!!

Harlene said...

My youngest wants me to tell you his fav posts are all about your oldest. He's got quite the thing for her!

No worries, he's only 9, and a perfect gentlemen I'm told.

My fav woudl be the first shout out I gave you on my blog, the motivational poster with the teen in the Mom's minivan.

Kindred spirits I tell you.

MiaKatia said...

Shout out is up!!!

Chanda said...

What's not to love?! Your blog is so great. I do so enjoy the many motivational posters - I could look at those all day. You have a real knack for picking out the best.

Suzanne said...

I like that each time I come here I know your posts will make me smile. EACH AND EVERY TIME. That's why I'm a follower. :)

Holly said...

I'm a friend of Tib's and have read your blog a couple of times. I think you are very funny, I have laughed out loud at some of your posts, but some of the pictures you post are creepy. Like haunt me forever after creepy. But that may be because I'm on the sensitive side.

Angela said...

I don't think I entered already, if I did ignore this. But one of my favorites is your favorite: Movies and music. I love all the 80's stuff. Thanks for a great read. Please enter me in. I will give you a shout out on my blog.

the Braby family said...

Gotta love the Nat'l Lampoon's Christmas tribute: "best singular use of a black dickie and a white sweater in movie history. PERIOD."

Yeah, I laughed out loud.

Omgirl said...

International Male. Without a doubt. That and the sweetness of meeting Her Royal Mindiness in person. Oh, that was a great day for all of us.

p.s. You totally stole my thunder because my 1 year blogging anniversary just passed and I haven't posted my blog's birthday post yet. I can't get my act together and come up with prizes for my giveaway. I will look like such a poser when I do. Boo hoo.

Melissa and Justin said...

How about...What DON'T I love?! My sister linked me up to your blog. It always makes us laugh. We live on opposite sides of the country and blogging has helped us stay connected. (She's the Depeche Mode lovin' Michelle) Anyway...HAPPY ANNIVERSARY...and thanks for keeping us in stitches all the time! My personal fav, though, was the confessional booth-so genius!

Angi said...

I would have to say your random-ness is my favorite part of your blog. My sis is Lesley Sparks, and she raved so much of your blog that I have come back several times for a peek. keep on bringin' it!

GDR said...

Your off the wall sense of humor ! Some time you SHOCK me. But I keep coming back :)

The Moorhouses said...

I just found your blog from another friend's link and it is hilarious. i love the gangsta talk. My sister (32) and I (29) always joke that we are the only whtie 30-something moms that speak gangsta!

jori-o said...

I love that your blog makes me LAUGH...like belly rolling, laugh out loud laughing! You are a very funny person and although I "know" you from SG I don't really "know" you...now I am getting to know you better!

I love your stories, the awesome pictures of everything under the sun and your sense of humor.

Thanks for sharing with all of us!

Now that I have found the bottom of the comments. Just to leave you some more goodness. How do I know all this praise is not going to your "head"? Even though at this point you really don't need me to tell you how funny some of the pictures are that you are posting. Or the fact that I love how random every post seems. I am drawn in by the "Loot" that you are giving away. Silly Me!

or maybe it's the fact that you are uber trendy?

no, i know... it's the fact that you are SO real, confident, smart and an awesome writer!

yep that's it.

Ok so I found your blog from another blog, and I freakin love it! I posted a link on my own blog and you have inspired me to change the name of my blog in the near future ;) I just love happy people!

Thanks for a chance at a great giveaway too!

Shanz said...

OK, my most favoritest thing ever are your high school memories! Especially the one about the Thompson Twins concert that you went to with your really cool friend that wore like 3 swatches on 1 arm...;)

I'm making it official...I'm in. (Tib chastised me for not commenting enough...it's my New Years resolution.)
I am going to have to go with the confession booth- not only was I checking it every 15 minutes to get another nugget of jaw-dropping fun, it's what led me to send you that email and allowed me a coveted place among your FB friends.

Lyndsey said...

Does this count, I Loved the comment you left on Shannon's blog about how Lyndsey never smiles. I smile all the time, I just wouldn't smile at you guys because you were mean to me, or so I thought.

Seeker said...

Love your postings...dont' have a fav because they are all so darn good. Love that i can listen to your music while reading....you are AWESOME..

Misty said...

HAPPY ANNIVERSH! We can only pick ONE favorite thing...seriously? Well, I may or may not break the rules. My favorites would have to be the Motivational posters that make me laugh hysterically, the Confession Booth that you did a couple of times, the posts about your adorable daughters, your Funny Funny Randomness posts, your Giveaways (of course), your Seasonals that you put all of us to shame with every season, oh and I can't forget your flashback pictures - you were definitely an 80's WOMAN! And that's pretty much one...right?!

Misty said...

Oh yeah, and I totally pimped you out on my blog, so count me down for 100 extra entries...you mean we only get 1 extra entry? Best Napoleon Dynamite voice: GAWSH! Okay, just kidding. But seriously, check my blog out. I totally posted a picture of you!

Wendyburd1 said...

Cool Giveaway! I learned a few things actually. I had NO idea that skipping was jogging's gay brother. Or that Barack's car in on e-bay. And that you want some COOL t-shirts!!

Sunny said...

One thing I've loved? That you're this cool in PUBLIC! No shame. No apologies. No explanations...unless they only serve to add to the hilarity. You rock my world. Float my boat. I've pimped you out on my blog and if I ever came across you being pimped out for real on the mean streets of St. George I would buy the whole night and then some.

Aimee said...

The one thing I love about this blog is YOU! Seriously. I love you!

Meladie said...

Melinders said...

Obviously I've been missing out!!! I just happened to click on the link to your blog, an what I have read has been so funny!! I will have to keep up on reading your blog, so I too can start my day out with a smile! I happened to see your safe baby handling tips and couldn't help but laugh!! Maybe it's because I have a new baby.

Melissa said...

Monika said...

I came across your blog today and LOVE IT! I have laughed reading through it, I don't think I can pick one favorite, I like it all.

Melinda said...

I've never read your blog until today, and I love it! I loved your post about Curve cologne. I totally understand, and I can't resist a fabulous giveaway!

Rusti said...

It's quite a love fest over here. And why not?! I know I've got a lotta love for ya.

Certain phrases pop into my mind when I think of Mindi. Things like Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot, the 80’s as a whole, 5th grade humor (love it), mullets…

One of my favorite posts was a video you took of Tiburon from the John Mayer concert. I tried to search for her exact words from the video but I can’t remember when it was. It was something along the lines of, “I’m gonna pee my pants!” Awesome.

Also, my husband does enjoy looking over my shoulder while I'm on your blog.

Kendra said...

Mindi -
I love your blog and I just started looking at it like a week ago. My favorites so far are the "free hugs" and the 2 boys and the principal about "dirty dancin'"
Your my favorite blog and hey YOU were the 1st person I met when we moved here many long long years ago!!!! I should win just for that memory=)

Mari said...

Hi! I found you blog through a friends and love to stop in to see your round-up of funny, no hilarious pictures. I was hooked on your blog when I clicked on yourInternational Male catalog post. I laughed SO hard and have been back to see your other great posts. I hope you don't mind I read, even though I don't know you. Thanks for the laughs! You crack me up!

Kristin said...

I love it because it is YOU!

Plus, it is my big bday on the 22nd, so this would be the greatest present ever from you to me. ;)


(ps - Blogger is freaking out, so please delete this 2nd comment if it is a duplicate...)

Melissa said...

Wow, how did I not comment? I'm an idiot! I love the confession booth myself.

ashlynn said...

Ok I will enter now ... I love reading your blog because it is always funny & you do all the work of finding all the stuff for me. Thanks lady

Babe said...

I liked the post where you went to a concert and took a pic of someone in the background????? I can't totally remember what happened, I just remember laughing out loud, thanks!!

Sylvia {+ Mark} said...

Props to you for a really fun blog with lots of edge to it.

A fav...hmmm, so many but I think I loved when your daughter used a sharpie on your family photos and you didn't string her up by her ear lobes and I loved the post where you treated yourself to a Roots sweatshirt.
