still wanting to buy your love: superfantastic blog giveaway!



well, folks, it looks like it's THAT time again--yes, time for another shameless, shallow, self-promoting giveaway for no reason at all but to make you like me more.

as an homage to our obsessive "lost" episode family home evenings every night of the week, i wanted to go with a number theme, but am going instead with something in letter form---the first letter of your last name in a frame, along with a bush (russ always likes me to throw that in just so he can see it in type. so predictable.) for those of you that spit on letters and bushes, i have also enclosed a $25 gift card to kohls--and yes, i know your last name might not start with an "f"--but it should....
(**added as a comment by tiburon: "Why the F? Your last name doesn't start with F? Neither does your first name? Do you just have it so people will ask "What the eff?")

it's not rocket science, so all can play! leave a comment here, and if you don't have a blogger account, 1. what is wrong with you?! and, b, just leave your name and info under an "anonymous" comment.

don't wanna pimp you out, but will reward your selling yourself out for selling ME on your blog with two entries. NOT required for my love, though.

this fantastic opportunity will end at midnight, july 28th--

LET THE GAMES BEGIN!!

Another fantastic giveaway that I won't win - but since I won for being a loser I am not bitter. Of course you will get the shoutout :)

Why the F? Your last name doesn't start with F? Neither does your first name? Do you just have it so people will ask "What the eff?"

COUNT ME IN--I LOVE TO WIN!!!!I am a stalker to the blogging world and have not been lucky to win anything as a stalker. Recently I decided that maybe the way to WIN these giveaways would be to join in on the fun and start my own blog. All I have to say is.......IT better work!!!

Christie said...

I love free stuff. And my maiden name starts with an "F". Think my hubby will care if I put that out? (I like my maiden name so much more than my married one)

Misty said...

Okay, so I will definietly make this comment a priority! I wanna win some Bush, have people say "what the F?" when they enter my house and go on a shopping spree. I will prepare my acceptance speech, right after doing a shameless plug on my blog. Count me in for 2!

I have always wanted to frame some family "P" in the living room.

omar said...

You scored 9/10 on the new quiz. 12/20 on the old one.

But between you and me, in exchange for me winning this giveaway, I'll happily go back and retroactively declare you the winner.

Megal said...

Suzie said...

This only made me feel LAME!
I totally need to do a giveaway of my own and here you are doing one already.
And right after surgery!
wow.


oh. and Jen on my blog. Her mom married Jer's first cousin. But I knew her before that through my own daughter competing at Miss Utah. Also, my best friend Erika was Jen's director when she was Utah's Outstanding Teen.
that probably is way too confusing.

Amy M. said...

Alright I'm feeling pretty lucky, so count me in. Seriously, your blog is an absolute must read for me.

Darian said...

Should I know what fggf is? Remember, I'm a new blogger.

Anonymous said...

Enter me!

Jennie Minor said...

oh I hope I win! I have been trying and trying. And I will totally post this on my blog!

Jennifer said...

I love, love, LOVE Kohls! I'd love to win. Thanks for the chance.

TheShippenFamily said...

Your blog is hilarious. Count me in.

Gretch! said...

YOU are hilarious!!

Your family is beautiful!

steveandsteph said...

I know you've already earned this award AT LEAST once, but hop on over to my blog and find out what I said about you recently!

ELASTICWAISTBANDLADY said...

YAY FOR STUFF!

I can't wait to give the F card to my boss. F You is always such an endearing term.

Brandy & Josh said...

Cuper cute. Stumbled across your sight today and I am loving it! I will defiently be back.

Shayne said...

I think I am more likely to win the lottery than a giveaway on Mindi's blog. She has more blog friends than people that play the lottery.

jenimur said...

Please choose me! What more can I say? Oh, I and I put link on my blog to yours!

September said...

I definitely want the Kohl's gift card!

Gretchen said...

Shout-out'd!

tammy said...

Maybe I can use that Kohl's card to finally buy me that new bra...

Josh, Lindsie, and Ava said...

This looks like my favorite one so far. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

seven said...

What a great giveaway! Kohl's is awesome.

Kristen said...

Count me in! I'm addicted to Kohl's and need a new pair of shoes--who doesn't!
As for the family reunion, I think the key was having lots to do and something for everyone. There was a pool, basketball court, horseshoes, lake with kayak and paddle boats, air conditioned cafeteria with genealogy area, puzzles, games, bubbles, hula hoops, little golf game, sidewalk chalk, and Rock Band. And when we were all exhausted and completely worn out, we went to our own cabin and slept hard. Great food was also a huge plus!

Jod Jas Curtis said...

Woohoo- maybe since my birthday is in August I'll win this one!!! :) I'll give you a couple shout outs on my blog too!

Charity??? I am the charity!!! Ok pick me and I will share it with Shayne. He said that F word a lot in High school. It would really mean a lot. Bush would also have meaning! you're the best.
