Sugarlaws: Living Sweetly.

giveaway: oh! nuts and life as we know it

I was so excited when I was contacted to feature this giveaway on Sugarlaws, centered around the new movie Life As We Know It!  Combine Katherine Heigl, John Duhamel and an adorable baby, and what’s that a recipe for?  Two very entertaining hours.  And there’s one more thing…

See, every time there’s a movie with a main character who owns a bakery, someone contacts Sugarlaws.  I’m not even kidding.  I knew nothing about this movie except that the previews looked cute, but when I got the email proposing this giveaway, I knew: Katherine Heigl owns a bakery.

And she does.  And not only that, but the movie is totally adorable — I was lucky enough to see a screening this week, but it’s out in theatres nationwide on Friday!  And it was so, so cute.  I laughed, I cried (literally, but I am a sap and the poor baby is an orphan) and it was a perfect girls-night-out movie!

Oh! Nuts is running their own awesome giveaway, where you can win a trip for four to Los Angeles, including airfare, four nights at the W Hotel, and four tickets to a tour of the Warner Brothers Studio!  You can enter here on their website — the contest runs until October 21st!

    The best thing about raising a 1 year old is that the sun and moon both set upon you. Your their everything! Then they grow to be a teen…

    and your just in their way. :(

    I miss that 1 year old little girl I once had!

    The worst thing seems to be the lack of sleep.

  • 4 Kristen // Oct 6, 2010 at 6:20 am

    did the twitter thing for you 😉

  • 5 Prissy // Oct 6, 2010 at 6:26 am

    I think the worst thing would be the lack of sleep! And all of those nasty diapers.  :)

  • 6 Maggie // Oct 6, 2010 at 6:44 am

    I think the worst thing would be the constant worrying! I want kids but the idea of being responsible for a tiny human is terrifying!

  • 7 Cheryl // Oct 6, 2010 at 6:51 am

    I think the best thing would be hearing your childs voice!!

  • 8 Cheryl // Oct 6, 2010 at 6:51 am


  • 9 Chiara // Oct 6, 2010 at 7:29 am

    That sounds like my type of movie!!! Cheesy cute comedy!! I don’t believe I am eligible since I am in South America, but the best thing would be dressing them up in the most adorable clothes!!!

  • 10 Katy // Oct 6, 2010 at 8:22 am

    Awww — I agree with all these bests (and worsts)!  And I also agree that the idea of a baby sounds totally terrifying…!

  • 11 Kathy - Panini Happy // Oct 6, 2010 at 8:48 am

    The best thing is watching them explore and learn new things constantly. And the giggle and grins!

  • 12 Shannon // Oct 6, 2010 at 8:53 am

    I’d have to say all that baby noise (crying!) would be the worst.

  • 13 Haley // Oct 6, 2010 at 9:20 am

    It may seem obvious, but just the fact that your awake time and sleep time would be turned completely upside down.

  • 14 Nive // Oct 6, 2010 at 9:22 am

    When they cry at untimely hours and you are left in a quandary on why they are crying…That will be terrifying…Thanks for this giveaway…

  • 15 sarakata // Oct 6, 2010 at 9:48 am

    Since I have an almost one year old niece, I already know: it’s CRAZY. The normal things you used to enjoy so easily: you can’t. Like restaurants! No more romantic dinners, for sure! haha.

  • 16 Annabelle // Oct 6, 2010 at 1:16 pm

    Being a “senior citizen” the worst thing with having a one year old would be trying to explain to my friends how I’m a new mother again. :-)

  • 17 Lawyer Loves Lunch // Oct 6, 2010 at 1:34 pm

    What an adorable giveaway.  And, I bet the three a.m. screaming fits are no fun!

  • 18 Sushu // Oct 6, 2010 at 2:45 pm

    Worst thing has to be the amount of money you need to spend on a 1 year old.

  • 19 Closet Fashionista // Oct 6, 2010 at 3:36 pm

    How fun! I want to see this :)
    Hmm….I would say diaper changes :p Disgusting

  • 20 girl paraphernalia // Oct 6, 2010 at 4:15 pm

    John D, I love his demeanor in all his movies (doesn’t he have a show). I don’t have an account with twitter just yet, but I hope my comment will list me in the give away..

    The worst thing I can imagine is their innate ability to pick up on things so easily, words, expressions, which means, my one year old would sound like a sailor if I don’t curb my cursing…

  • 21 Jordan // Oct 6, 2010 at 5:40 pm

    I don’t have children but I would have to say the worst thing would be the diapers and other bodily functions.

  • 22 admin // Oct 7, 2010 at 8:22 am

    Thanks for the entries, guys!  Keep em coming!

  • 23 Willy // Oct 7, 2010 at 9:49 am

    I’m not sure what’s worse, diapers or the fact that the kid can’t talk to tell you what it wants. I don’t do well with baby language.

  • 24 Wonderful // Oct 7, 2010 at 11:29 am

    Definitely the worst thing would be the lack of sleep and the constant fear of having the kid get lost or hurt.

  • 25 June // Oct 7, 2010 at 3:17 pm

    the worst thing? we’ve lived it: the kid learns how to remove all clothing and diaper and soils everything in eyesight. you might think it’s just in the movies but it happens. to lots of people!

  • 26 Cassie // Oct 7, 2010 at 4:38 pm

    I think the best thing would be waking up every day and seeing what my husband and I created together.  A baby is the ultimate reminder of the love between a couple because you have to be madly in love to make the commitment to have a child.

    What a wonderful giveaway and a very humorous looking movie!

    Tweeted too!

  • 27 yael // Oct 7, 2010 at 9:08 pm

    For me the best thing about raising a one-year -old is watching the delight of discovery in their eyes; the excitement when they suddenly can do something they couldn’t do before.

  • 28 yael // Oct 7, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    following on twitter and tweeted!

  • 29 Lisa // Oct 8, 2010 at 8:44 am

    I think the worst thing would be the lack of freedom! Everything must be planned, equipment must be packed before you can go anywhere!

  • 30 Heather // Oct 8, 2010 at 6:34 pm

    One of the worst things about having a one year old would be having no time to go to the movies or read blogs!

  • 31 Janine // Oct 9, 2010 at 9:05 pm

    Worst thing? The constant change. Just when you think you’ve got things under control, little one starts teething. Or stops liking milk. Or starts climbing. Poor mommy can’t keep up!

  • 32 Kem // Oct 10, 2010 at 8:47 am

    The best thing would be teaching the child everything you know, and the worst thing would be realizing that child can now disprove what you taught it to be true.

  • 33 Kem // Oct 10, 2010 at 8:49 am

    You have a twitter mention from me!

  • 34 Pamela M // Oct 11, 2010 at 6:47 am

    I’d say the best thing would be getting to dress them up in cute outfits and just spending time with them.  The worst thing would probably be the lack of sleep.  I need my sleep!

  • 35 Kari S // Oct 12, 2010 at 2:50 pm

    Worst thing: Having to always,always,always be responsible for a tiny human.  They depend on YOU for everything.There is no jetting off by yourself at a moments notice after you become a parent.
    Best thing: Having so many firsts that first year. First smiles, first laughs, first full night sleep, first everything. And when they look at you and say Ma for the first time there will be no better first than that.

  • 36 Bethany Davis // Oct 17, 2010 at 7:00 pm

    I think the best and worst thing go hand in hand.  Children begin to explore, learn new things, gain a personality all their own, and express their love for you through hugs and smiles.  But this also means that they are growing up and soon won’t be your little baby anymore.  No matter the lost sleep, tantrums, bad moods, and messes, one smile from their tiny bright faces erases those memories.
