t-rex tuesday (and a GIVEAWAY).


There’s nothing like a good afternoon G-chat session to inspire today’s blog post, which may indeed turn out to be the most random blog post in this bloggy’s toddler-age history.



So in Deborah’s reminding me of how much I love all things T-Rex, I shall share my favorite Internet T-Rex finds for you. And then give something away, because I’m feeling generous after all y’all’s tremendous support for EuropeItinerary.com. Plus, I’ve been wanting to give this Rafflecopter thing a go. And I just really like y’all. And it’s Tuesday, and I don’t like Tuesdays, but this makes this Tuesday better.

My love for T-Rex’s actually began with this video and the famous “I have a big head and little arms” line.

and then there’s beloved and aptly named Rex from one of m y’all time favorite movies, Toy Story. 
This Pixar short with “Partysaurus Rex” is too cute.

T-Rex Trying

The T-Rex Trying illustrated Tumblr is just fantastic. You can even buy t-shirts with the illustrations.  I just wouldn’t know which one to pick.

Pinterest Finds

and this…

And last but not least,

So now it’s your turn to win! I’m giving away a surprise T-Rex T-shirt (Ok, maybe the one above, fine. or actually maybe this one, too) to one lucky winner out there. Come on, who doesn’t love a good novelty shirt? And if you really don’t, I’ll give you the $20 as an Amazon.com gift card instead, because I am THAT nice. The giveaway will run for one week. Yes, I will verify that you actually did the things you said you did. Winner will be chosen by Rafflecopter, etc.

    I’m really partial to dogs – they just have so much love! I was also SUPER obsessed with koalas when I was little. we had a eucalyptus tree in our front yard, which had me convinced I could one because hey, I could feed it!
    [also, I like your blog FB page using my blog FB page. just for the record]

    Please tell me this is going to be a weekly thing. This is the best thing to happen to Tuesdays since Pretty Little Liars.

    • http://ifsandsandbutts.com ifs ands & butts

      I so wish it could be. Maybe it can be a first Tuesday of every month thing. This I will consider. T-Rex Tuesday sets me back like 8 bottles of wine in Germany 😉

    Used to have a huge T-Rex toy when I was 5. My favourite was the Velociraptor though. My dinosaur toys used to be in the triple digits during kindergarten. No idea what happened to them…

    …These are fantastic! I would have to say my favorite non-human creature would have to be a Griffon, but honestly, there are so many fantastic creatures out there, who can say?!

    • http://ifsandsandbutts.com ifs ands & butts

      Griffins are actually kind of a symbol of my city in Germany – pretty cool!

    I love those t-rex arms! When the Meet the Robinsons trailer first came out I couldn’t stop quoting it. And my favorite non-human creature is a penguin!! I’ve been obsessed with them since about the age of five.
