superfantastic blog giveaway




time for another shameless, self-promoting giveaway!

i love christmas books--it allows me to indulge in christmas spending while still fooling myself into thinking 'it's educational, so it doesn't count." so i'm gifting (NOT re-gifting, mind you. but not that i'm above that.) can you see what i see? and snowmen at christmas, as well as a leg lamp nightlight. for those of you who spit on education AND electric sex, i have included a 25 dollar olive garden/red lobster gift card.


**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.



these tidings of comfort and joy will end wednesday, dec. 17th at midnight.


may the best blogger win!

This is possibly the best shameless giveaway EVAH! I have to read to my kids every night, so they would be perfect, and my favorite place to eat is good ol' RED SLOBBSTER, and my husband is too cheap to ever take me there. I hope I am "randomly selected" because it would be the best day ever.

The Mom said...

You are officially being promoted on my blog. I will be back cause you are so hilarious. BTW I would really enjoy the books and Red Lobster! And Jmadd craves that night light.

The Gee Family said...

This is such a cute idea! I love to read and Christmas is my favorite time of year. I would love to start collecting more Christmas stories for my children who also love to read and be read to. This is fun and I would love to be the winner. Crossing my fingers!!

Vanessa said...

Is it weird that when i went to Rite Aid yesterday and saw the leg lamps, I wanted to buy one for you? And now you are giving it away!
