Giveaway Time!

Alright, readers! It's the time of the blogging season where I find that I have to both show you what I actually look like (because my mom told me she didn't care if I posted photos of myself on here or not), and host this giveaway I've been dropping hints about since my trip to Colorado Springs THREE MONTHS AGO.

 Eh... that's a bad shot of me, because I'm wearing glasses. Let me find another one.

Just for the record: my shirt was orange, not red.

This was taken last month at a comedy show that Hope (who is also conveniently in this photo), my mom and I attended. Our cousin Cody was one of the comedians performing, and I have to tell you that he... well. I'm still laughing at some of the jokes he told. I just can' retell them because they're a tad inappropriate.

Okay, so now for the prizes. It's more of a meager contest, and I apologize to let you guys down--because I know you were eagerly anticipating it. ;)

 1. Two Geodes and a London 2012 Pin.

Cat not included.

2. Blue and Green Elephants.

3. Green Pony W/ Light Blue Dorsal Stripe and Goldish Apatosaurus.

The rules:

1. Comment on this post and tell me what you plan to do this summer.
2. Write down which prize package you would like.
3. You must be following this blog to enter.
4. The contest ends at 11:59 on June 24th. Any entries after June 24th won't be accepted. 

So anyway, have fun and may the odds be ever in your favor!

I plan, as you know, to head to Las Vegas tomorrow. And then the rest of the summer is devoted to baseball/softball/t-ball and 4-H stuff.

Oops! I forgot to pick a prize. I love your artwork, so I like package 3 the best. :)

Hey, I think I'm following your blog! I added it to my list :-) This summer is full of things! This weekend I'm going to the TX Le Leche League conference. Next week we are going to St. Louis for a family reunion. Then in July I go to CA for about 3 weeks for one of my brother Noah's wedding.

I really like the elephants, although the horse and dino are great too. I have a 2 yr old boy so he would love either one!

I've "known" your mom online for over a decade at this point, so when she pointed me towards your blog, I had to read it.

You have a gift! I love your writing. It's humorous without being... whatever it is that I can't think of the word right now, but trust me it's you know how people can be funny but not really?

I know my daughters will love to follow your blog (as will I). I like prize package 1, personally, but you can KEEP the cat. ;-) Can I send you ours?

Now I'm off to read the archive!

I'm going to get a basketball hoop and I'm going to play basketball. I am taking swimming lessons, too. I would like to enter for the Elephant Prize Package. Signed, Sean age 6 (dictated to Mommy who typed)

Summer stuff... family reunion and wear out my kids!

As far as what I want... I love those elephants! But not for me, for a little girl who ADORES elephants!

I'm Evelyn Mrs. Fitz's daughter, and I'm going camping a bunch this summer, and mostly staying home while my mom goes places. Like to Las Vegas to see your mom! No fair!

E Fitz said...

PS I'm not sure how I follow you. What do I do?

E Fitz said...

OH, and please sign me up for the geode package. I have my own cat for the display.

This summer, I am nannying for a neighbor of mine, which is overall fairly enjoyable. My family is also planning on taking a vacation somewhere, destination TBD. But they say that life is all about the journey anyways, right? :) Anyway, if i were to win, I would say please to the elephants! I could see them being a quirky yet cute decoration in my fantasy chic apartment that i want to own after I graduate from college. :) Thanks!

Whoa! I hadn't checked this blog in a while, and suddenly there were three pages to read! xD

Wow, in that top photo, you really look like Avi from this blog: Sadly she hardly ever posts anymore...
