well, poo.

4 days in and i've already missed a day of daily posting.  boo.

i feel i have to make it up to you.  so today's going to be a two-for-one...one relatively meaningful, well thought out post and one fun little giveaway (my first!). 

i'll get the well thought out post up later today.  in the meantime, here's the 411 about my very first giveaway:

what you could win: 

a $20 Amazon gift card
(sent via e-mail)


how to enter (up to 3 times!): 

1. leave a comment telling me what you'll do with your newfound loot;
2. follow my blog and leave me a comment telling me you're doing so; and
3. read through my previous posts and tell me which is your favorite!

contest ends FRIDAY, OCTOBER 8th at 9pm.  winner will be chosen by Random.org and will be announced no later than Sunday, October 10th. (it's shaping up to be a busy weekend already!)

good luck!!

I will buy a ball winder!

Sherri said...

I will apply it to the $200 co-pay I have to pay next week at the dentist for my little guy. Again. Ugh.

Sherri said...

I'm now following your blog and the sept 12th post is my favorite. Because I can soooo identify with it. Short and basic but says so much. Ha ha ha

Tiffany said...

I will take my Mother to lunch for helping me out with my kids since my surgery.

Jacqueline in Atlanta said...

I would love to spend it on myself, because I adore books, but I have two kiddos in college now, so it will get spent on next semester's textbooks. Amazon is a great place for them to buy their books - way better than the school bookstore which is like paying for a house!!

Thanks for having the giveaway!

Pat said...

I would buy a book that I would enjoy.

And I am with Sherri about the Sept 12 post. Only, in my case the crying baby should be substituted with a whining three year old. Sigh.

I would probably buy some games and donate them to childs play in all honestly. I have enough stuff around the house, and I know kids stuck in hospitals would adore having a new game to play.

After looking through some of your posts... the one that really caught my eye was the one about the dollhouse you found at the garage sale... wow! What a steal.

ThisIsMaggieT said...

With a $20 gift certificate, I'd immediately put the money towards a pair of classic Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses! I've been dying to get a pair since... forever! Or maybe some new shoes. A girl can never have too many shoes!

Tarissa said...

Amazon gift card, holy cow! I was hoping I would find someone giving one of these away... so that I can win it! I'm purchasing a Kindle soon... it would help me so much if I could knock $20 off that pricey thing.

Tarissa said...

So, I'm a new follower of your blog!

Tarissa said...

I'm browsing through your blog... I see this post about Octoberfest--gasp! That sounds like fun. I actually did something similar to that back in March--but I was all by myself, with no other supporting blogs. I got lots of comments that month though.

Keep up the good work and you'll be able to actually make it through the month, posting each day... I did it!

By the way, you haven't posted today... time is ticking. *points to wristwatch*

Stephanie said...

I would put it towards some baby food --- seems to be all we buy these days!!!
