Missy's Flour Power Hour

Holaaaaaaaaa friends, readers, listeners and supporters. Sunday was a HUGE day for the I’m With Stupid franchise. Our good friend Missy and her adorable daughters held a Lemonade Stand and Bake Sale to raise funds to help the IWS podcast go premium.

Because Missy is such a sweet and selfless person, she made up some chocolate chip cookie bars, brownies and …. ANNNNNNNNNNND …. Glazed Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins! Oh yeahhhhhh! And a big jug of fresh and delicious lemonade WITH lemon slices! Missy and the girls got all the goodies ready on Saturday.


But that’s not all. Oh no! Most people would stop there, but not Missy. She and the girls made up posters too!


Plus, they each wore t-shirts that said “Lemon Aid for IWS” Ha! Get it? Lemon “AID???” That’s pretty cute.


On Sunday they got all the stuff together and got it all set up ready for business just before the show started at Noon ET. All they needed was customers who were hungry and/or thirsty.


Once the show started, Missy called in to let us know that they were up and running and gave the girls a chance to say hello to the world. While she was talking, customer #1, good old Ralph, got the day rolling. Then, just as the live stream was about to end, Missy called in a second time to give us an update and chat for a bit. She also got to meet Sweet Pea who was also on the line. Babes everywhere I tell ya!

The show itself was pretty entertaining. We talked about other fundraising ideas like becoming sculptors. Also, about some other stuff we could sell at our own lemonade stands if we did one. Ours wouldn’t be nearly as nice as Missy’s. We talked about Missy’s goodies and especially the how much we love glazed muffins, plus all kinds of other somewhat hilarious stuff.

Then after the show, Matt and Jay each had some pizza, watched some football and took a nap. We did this without any coordination at all. We’re just that much in sync. What where Missy and the girls doing while we were enjoying our pizza, football and naps? They were slaving at the lemonade stand, that’s what! We actually both feel a little guilty about that, but well there’s nothing we can do about it now.

We would like to send out a big thanks to the wonderful Missy and her girls for doing all this. It was so sweet of them. It’s really great to have someone like Missy who so supportive and genuine around, especially since it’s pretty debatable whether or not we deserve her. It was a great day and we are definitely feeling the love here at IWS and hope everyone else is too!

Thanks so much Missalicious!

Oh gosh, everything looks so delicious. I want them nowww...

I also want some lemonade. With vodka.

Dana said...

So? How did the child labor work for y'all??

I still think you should do one of those Pledgie/PayPal things so that I can mock you ;)

Mike said...

Hopefully the girls don't liston to, watch, look at, or read IWS. You're going to have to do a kids version. For kid kids. Not adult kids.

Jo said...

Missy, you're a saint and your kids are darling! It's amazing how hard they worked for IWS. I love the t-shirts, so cute.

So what's next...and what's wrong with a Paypal button? I think it's a good idea since your promo is so specific.

Matt-Man: Oh man, everyone needs a Missy in their life. No doubt about that.

Missy: You and your girls rock babe!

Gnetch: Lemonade always needs vodka to help it out. Or maybe tequila.

Jay

Dana: If you haven't found reasons to mock by now you aren't trying.

Jay

I'm With Stupid said...

Mike: No, I'm sure they aren't allowed to do any of those things. Nor should they. Hell, a lot of adults shouldn't listen either.

Jo: A PayPal button would probably be a good idea. I'm also looking at Kickstarter.
