in honor of this, my 201st post
i'm having a contest!
thousands will enter
two will win
okay hundreds will enter
two will win
more than one?
come on people give me something...
two ways to win...
leave a comment
leave a comment
i ask a lot when i give stuff away
write a caption or title
to the picture above that will probably get me in trouble
when & if mr. Q ever reads this much of my blog
& i say this with all the love in my heart
it's totally worth it!
& come on
it's not like he's naked!
or watching 'big brother'
now THAT would be embarrassing...
you only have to enter once
the first drawing will be totally random
so if you leave a caption you could win the first one.
the second prize package
(yes i said package)
will be the best caption
as chosen by none other than me...
if i laugh out loud that's a plus
& if i snort you're pretty much a shoe-in...
the random drawing winner will receive
a box filled to the brim
(or at least half way)
with my favorite things:
raindrops on roses
& whiskers on kittens
& sleigh bells
& warm woolen mittens
fraulein maria's favorite things...
i was wondering how i was going to get the whiskers off the cat
& what if i was sending the package far away?
wouldn't the raindrops dry up?
plus we need our doorbell...
thank goodness i'm not a fictional character!
MY favorite things:
*a bottle of water
(don't worry it gets better)
*a bag of baked kettle chips
*a package of my favorite mint hot chocolate mix
*a nutz over chocolate luna bar
(thus ends the edible portion of the prize)
*a great magazine
(this will be case specific...
if you don't have kids i won't send you wondertime.
if you can't name three starlets
who have been in rehab by their first names only
i won't send you US.
if you don't eat i won't send you cooking light.)
*a lovely selection of my favorite crafty supplies
sewy, painty, scrapbooky & otherwise
*a package of baby wipes
(hey! it's my prize
i can include whatever i want!
are you kidding me?
they are the best thing ever
& not just for baby's bottoms anymore)
*a few other things that i haven't decided on yet
the caption writer will win something great
i can't decide what yet
but it will be great
(yes, i know
but i have too many ideas!
plus i think it will depend on where the person lives...
plus isn't just being nominated an honor?)
so there it is!
& let me say, please
that i am so thankful for you guys!
it is so fun to read all of your comments
& get your feedback on important topics
like what to do with my bread crusts...
you have made me laugh & smile & tear up:)
& it has been so fun to click on your names & go read your blogs
some of which haven't been updated lately
& some of you have been here since the beginning
& that deserves a prize in itself
plus overlooking my non-capitalization
& wretched spelling
& constant use of smiley faces...
oh go ahead everybody!
get yourself a glass of water on me!
the contest ends on friday
depending on what happens on friday...
now get cracking!
