A super big giant huge exciting day for my whittle baby blog!

Today (and the rest of the week really)- just because you are a lucky ducky- you get a chance to win something.  And this something is really cool.  I have been offered the opportunity to give away a one-time-use $25 gift certificate (does not include shipping fees, but can be used on any product from one of their 200+ websites!!!) to CSN Stores!!!  They sell everything from kids swing sets to blankets to pots and pans. (and they have a rockin' clearance section I might add).  CSN can only ship to the US and Canada- so they asked that I make sure whoever wins lives in one of those two places- so consider yourself warned. 

I have never ordered from CSN- but I too entered a blog contest and lost miserably when a small toddler boy chose not to draw my name.  Maybe you'll be luckier???  More lucky?  Have more luck?  What is the proper way to say that???

Wanna win?  Leave a comment- and if you are anonymous that is completely fine (cause I've heard tale that comments on blogger don't work very well sometimes)- but include your first name and the state where ya live so that when I post my big giant winner blog we will know if it is you.  And because I have just a handful of folks who actually read my mindless dribble- you will have HUGE odds of winning!!

One entry per person, I'm gonna draw the winner on Friday 2/11/11 so you have to enter before then, and when I say I'm gonna draw- I mean Sam is going to draw.  Because he can't read.  I'll put all your names in hat/bowl/jar/something and let him pick one out.  And then ta da!  The winner gets to pick out something cool and I get three whole days of anticipation and excitement in comments on my silly blog!

You have your crack, I have mine.

And comments on my blog- they are like crack.  Can't.get.enough.

Now, mind you, I've never tried real crack.  But I've heard it's addicting, and exhilarating and you can't get enough.  It also can kill you- so see, my crack is better.  Getting a comment on my blog totally makes my entire day.  Whether it's from a friend, a family member (hi mom!) or (and this is like the ultimate!) a complete stranger!!!  A new bloggy friend!  Yay!

When I see that a comment has been put on my old blog, I savor it.  Sometimes I don't read it right away.  Sometimes I enjoy it for a while, knowing I get to read it later.  Usually I read it right that very second.  See- just like crack.  Blog crack.

The point of all of this is, today I am hoping for a lot of crack comments in the next three days.  Other blogs have lots of big exciting give aways.  This is my first, and probably the last for a while (but who knows!) That show off pioneer woman even buys her own stuff to give away.  I will not be doing that.  Some get all kinds of stuff given to them to review and give away (a far off distant day dream for my blog).  But me- I didn't get a thing, except the extreme anticipation that I might get a comment or two.

Good luck.  Go team.  Power to the people.  Ready, set, go!

(I'm nervous, like a new momma.  I wonder how this is gonna turn out : )

It's me, Ronda from down the road, the girl you talk with nearly every day. I'm a bit busy this week, so I won't have time to make it over to teach Sam to read my name, but I know he knows his. So, Sam, Sam, Sam, Sam, Sam, Sam, and just for good measure...Nick!

Uh oh.... is Sam going to exact his revenge on me but purposely not pulling my name?? ;) I am Janet from Indianapolis - just across town from you!

P.S. The Pioneer Woman's giveaways are insane. Yes, it's a nice mixer, but literally over 30,000 people have already entered. I don't much like my odds!

Edited to add: I'm Liz in Michigan, by the way!
