Mail Time! #IRLOMashup

So I've got some mail to share with you.

Mail Time!
First up, let's talk about the #IRLOMashup (in-real-life-online).  There's teams, you see, and I'm on a team.  But not just any team, Team Awesome.  That's just how we roll around here.  And I got this card in the mail, along with some instructions.

Tico<3Tina are some friends of mine, and they make these cards that have a blank canvas on them, so that you can write your own message.  For example:


I'm pretty sure I need a whole slew of these so that I can properly "your mom" all the people in my life.  You can read more about them here.  My job, once receiving these cards, is to take a picture of myself with the card...

Write up a little something something (more on that later) and then send of off to the next person on my team (also more on that later).  So consider this my submission photo.  Handsome was going to take it, but he's snoring right now.  When I mentioned that "later" when he is willing to take a picture, it would be dark, he said that "That says something about you.  Tells people you like to party."  He's sleep-lying again.

Anyhow, Team Awesome is still looking for people to be on our team, and if you're interested, let me know quickly!  There are prizes and all sorts of great stuff for winning teams!  If you're interested in applying, please be willing to (1) Write a "your mom" on the card, and (2) Take a jumping picture with the card.  Team Awesome has high standards, what can I say?  More information here.

Other mail I got today includes this lovely thank you note from some of my office-mates.  They were hoping for a cake-month, and I think this is their attempt to get some more baked goods into the office.

Its too sweet, and too funny.  I very seldom hear my name pronounced correctly, seeing as how English is not their first language, and apparently "Mariah" translates to "Maria" in every language but English.  But they sure are wonderful!

And now, for the creep-tastic part of our series, The Prayer Mat.  Have you ever gotten one of these in the mail before?  This is my first one, and I'm proud to say I did not scream in terror when I read it.

The bottom reads:
"Look into Jesus' Eyes you will see they are closed.  But as you continue to look you will see His eyes opening and looking back into your eyes.  Then go adn be alone and kneel on this Rug of Faith or tuch it to both knees.  Then please check your needs on our letter to you.  Please return this Prayer Rug.  Do not keep it."
Trust me, I will not be keeping this sucker.  And thus ends our mail call.  Hope you're having a great day!

Team Awesome wants YOU!,


  1. ok, but make sure you don't REALLY write "your mom" on the card because then you might be disqualified - in case you can't tell from the pictures, Mariah put another paper on top of the card. you know, in case you weren't looking closely. yeah, go back and look at it again. wow, good job, Mariah! I think you really have the right idea with the "your mom" series... we might have to think about that!

    and wow, that prayer mat truly IS creepy. I actually want to TRY it. but I DON'T! but I kind of do... but it's CREEPY.

    1. Seriously, how creep-tastic is that prayer mat? I won't lie, I stared for about 2 seconds, and then I looked away. Because I don't think it will work, and even if it did, I don't want it to. Too crazy.

  2. What the heck is that prayer mat and where the heck is it from!?! That seriously creeped me out!
    And I'd be on your team... but I'm already on another one!!! :)

    1. So what you're saying is, I was sniped. Like someone who grabs the ebay item at the last minute, you were swiped from team... We can still be friends, as long as you don't ever send me the prayer mat. SO WEIRD.

  3. haha wow on the mat. And I'm excited about Team Awesome. I hope I can live up to the standards!

  4. #1: Jesus mat = creepy deepy.
    #2: Need you to teach me cheer move for my silouette.
    #3: Team Awesome is going to be EATEN by Team Menagerie.

    THE END.

    1. True, Okay, and NOT A CHANCE.

  5. i just stumbled onto your blog and now i can't stop reading it. love your sense of humor adn your recipes! the scariest thing is: WE GOT ONE OF THOSE MATS a couple weeks ago in the mail!!!

    1. So glad you stumbled here! Aren't those mats super freaky?? I'm not sure how to properly dispose of it, seeing as it IS a picture of Jesus's face and all... AH!

  6. I never realized just how boring my mail is until today.

    1. Trust me, you don't want to get that mat in the mail. SO WEIRD.
