Finally, the giveaway!

Well, I'm going to try this.  Even with only 17 followers.  I have 104 fans on facebook, thank you very much, so hopefully some of you strong but silent lovers of my blog will come forth to win a little giveaway goodness. 

I'm going to try to make this easy, and give you as many ways as possible to win.  But first, the juicy details.  This giveaway is simple.  While I'm still relatively unknown in the blogosphere, I'm buying the goods so they're staying cheap!  The winner of this giveaway gets a $20 gift card to the store of their choice.  That's it!  If you're like me, this $20 gift card means you have $20 less of explaining to do to your husband when the credit card bill comes.  So come join in the fun!

Here's how you can enter:

1.  Leave a comment to tell me where you'd most love to go on a shopping spree.  (You don't have to choose this store if you win.)
2.  Follow my blog and leave a comment telling me you followed.  If you already follow, comment to let me know.
3.  Vote for me at Top Mommy Blogs and comment telling me you did.  (One entry for each day you vote, make sure to comment each day you vote!  It would really make my life if I could get in the top 25 - we're so close!)       

Sorry, but I'm going to force you guys to leave comments on my blog instead of FB.  I'm going to be using Randomizer.org to select the winner, so I can't include any FB comments in the mix.     

You can do any or all of the above things to get an entry.  I'll select the winner this Monday, the 12th.  Good luck!   

P.S.  Thanks so much for reading my blog, you guys.  It really means a lot to me and I appreciate you!

Desireé Wolfe said...

Oh and now I have followed your blog.

Desireé Wolfe said...

I would love a Target shopping spree. That store is fun yet practical!

Amber said...

I work with Jessie and she encouraged me to read your blog about 2 months ago. I've been addicted to it ever since. In fact, I have to say its the highlight of my workday to come here and find that you posted a new one. You have such a great, funny way of blogging about life and even if I'm not a mommy yet... it is very relatable! Keep it up!

And Express would be a good place for a giftcard. Giftcards are the only excuse for shopping at a store like that one... :)

OH, and I voted. TWICE!

Catherine said...

I voted again, We're going for #1 here!
