Not Your Typical Baby Shower & 100th Post Giveaway!!!

This is it guys your chance to win some of my favorite things!!! But first....

I have had a crazy busy weekend preparing for my friends White Trash Baby Bash aka baby shower. The man was outta town so the little one and I had fun filled girls only weekend. We stayed up late all weekend long and hung out at my friends house down the road (the preggers one). There was lots chocolate and a little bit of wine involved pretty much all weekend long. I didn't take many pics but for the 3rd post in row I got to eat outta everybody's favorite bowl...
This bowl contained chia seeds and berries.

I have now polished off Kroger Creamy PB, Kroger Crunchy PB, and TJs Crunchy AB. MMmmm

So on to the White Trash Baby Bash. You would have to know my BFF to understand the theme behind this baby shower. There is honestly no one in this world like her. She is a very unconventional girl with a very unconventional since of humor (its almost sick). haha

I will just show some pics. Don't try to understand....
Here's some of the spread. Gotta have that Nascar!!!

My poo poo vegan cupcakes which by the way I think I found a perfect recipe!!

My dirty diaper chocolate cake.
Not pictured was a beautifully yellowed pee pee punch.

The guests all had to where tags with dirty names. I think someone slipped her an extra one...
We played 2 games. One was a dirty diaper game where guests had to sniff melted candy bar filled diapers and try and decided which brown melty chocolate was gracing the diaper they were holding. Here's some pics of the guests sniffing the dirty diapers...
We also played a game where the mommy to be picked 3 guests to race eating chocolate rocky road ice cream out of a diaper...Some of our guests (some in their finest white trash attire)...
There was also some crazy guy in a diaper...
The mommy to be had a great time. Here she is opening some gifts...
She was really feeling it after the party...
Enough of that craziness. Onto my giveaway!!! Wanna know whats up for grabs? Here ya go...
1 box of Kroger oat bran (my fav.), 1 jar of Kroger Natural Smooth Peanut Butter, 1 jar of Kroger Natural Crunchy and 1 jar of my new obsession, Artisana Coconut Butter!!!!! Don't worry you wont be getting my half eatin jar. I will have a brand new 8oz jar sent to the winners house!!!

How to enter you ask? If you have a bloggie link back to this post and then let me know in a comment below. If you don't have a blog (Kim and Liz) just leave me a comment telling me what your favorite breakfast is.

*For all you with a blog earn an extra entry by leaving a Confession Of The Day after one of your posts and let me know by email.

Contest will close Friday at midnight.

CONFESSION OF THE DAY: I used to be such a stickler about going to a restaurant. As a result many of friends do not ask me out to eat anymore because they think I refuse to go. This may have been true at one point but I like to think I am no longer that person. Even if I don't eat I would never pass up good convo. with friends!!!


  1. Favorite breakfast? Crunchy PB and banana on nearly burnt toast. That could also qualify as a favorite lunch or dinner... Mmmmm!

  2. Hey Justine. First I wanted to say your house looks beautiful ( I was peeking through your shower pics) Although your house is much bigger than mine...we have almost the same granite, the same wall color, and kitchen cabinets. How funny is that??? Because of you Shawn and I are now enjoying oatbran smoothies in the morning with a variety of fruits thrown in. It's a new favorite!!!

  3. looks like the shower was a ton of fun.. the preggo mama is gorgeous.. i miss being pregnant.. (HA not really)
    and are you supposed to be dressed like white trash? FAIL..
    and you know my fav. breakfast.. cheerios and fruit baby!!

  4. hahaha that's got to be the funniest shower i've ever seen!! i now have a ton of ideas in case i ever throw one to my pregger friends! thnx justine ;)

  5. Favorite breakfast - Greek parfait, hands down :) I'll be linking back in my next post!

    I LOVE the theme for that shower!! That's hilarious!

  6. Can I join the comp being from the other side of the world? Ah..I'll link you in tomorrow's post anyway :D Best brekkie - oats, whey protein, milk and a huge dollop of almond butter yum!

    Love the baby funny!!

  7. Hilarious Justine - definitely not your typical shower, but sounds like a blast. I loved it! If CD and I ever have kids - you're on shower duty, K?

    Many congrats on your 100th post! So exciting about your giveaway. I'll totally link to you in my next post. :)

  8. I had eggbeaters with mozzerella on top and a Thomas' English muffin for breakfast.

    I've been following your blog for a couple of weeks and have enjoyed reading your posts.

    I love the baby shower, perfect! Very creative too... :o)

    Posted a blog about this on mine... here is the link:

    I also did my confession there too because it was very fitting to the picture I used. LOL! Hope that is ok! :o)

  9. Wahahahaha! That loooks like TONS of fun! I'm always in for a good poopy fun!
    And yeah, I go through PBs and ABs by the jars in a week!

  10. ROTFLMAO!!! OMG, that looks like the most fun baby shower ever!!

    My fave breakfast is a parfait of frozen blueberries, yogurt/cottage cheese, and cereal. Healthy, refreshing, and so close to dessert.

    Thanks for running this giveaway! Those prizes look scrumptious!

  11. Hey Justine! You know, I’ve had trouble making comments on your blog lately. The other day I kept trying to comment and it wouldn’t let me so I eventually gave up. I wanted to tell you how much I liked you hummus on sweet potato idea!!

    All the oats in a jar look fantastic. Its only way to eat oats hey?!

    I love the poo poo vegan cupcakes! I bet they tasted awesome. And I actually think they look pretty tasty despite being poo-like. Does this make me weird?

    LOL @ the dirty diaper cake. I think that one looks a little less appetising…

    Those games sound like such fun! It’s pretty funny to see pictures of women sniffing diapers!

    When I make outgurt I use 500g of oat groats which I’ve found lasts me a little over a week! I’m loving it – it keeps my full like nothing else. I think its because it quite calorific, but my body definitely appreciates being full in the morning. Also, I think your idea about buying and returning a dress is genius! But I’d be too nervous to do the returning part!

  12. I love the shower scene! I write about trends in the party industry and right now in certain parts of the country, redneck wedding and baby showers are all the rage--complete with camo veils, trailer tot clothes and fake roadkill. Lovely!

    As for breakfast, I love either Greek yogurt with AB and banana mixed in with shredded wheat on the side or a big bowl of oatmeal, soymilk, banana and AB. Or Amy's pizza, but I digress...

    I'll link you on my next post!

  13. Hey Justine. That shower is how we do it in the south!! So cute. Non so healthy breakfast would be chocolate chip pancakes and healthy would be yogurt, cottage cheese, pb mixture with cereal add-ins. Have a great day!

  14. Oh my. This is hilarious! You got so creative with your games and food! Wow. Sounds like a fun lady! How did you do the diaper cake?! I didn't know they made cake tins like that!

  15. Pancakes anything, squished banana inside annnything I'm always looking for good recipes , and if i'm in a crazy rush pb2 on a ww English muffin does the trick!

  16. congrats on the 100 posts!

    that baby shower looks like SO much fun! I love the ice cream eating contest.

    i so want to try that coconut butter and that kroger oatbran is my favorite too :)
