$25 TJ Maxx Giveaway

This contest is now closed.  Thank you for all the awesome comments; I truly enjoyed reading them all.  The winner is Clarice.  Congrats!

Since everyone has been so welcome with all the changes I've got going on here, I'd like to give away something that shows my thanks.  I have a $25 TJ Maxx gift card that I'd like to give to one of my lucky readers.  What do you need to do?  I'll actually make this easy.

Leave me a comment telling me one thing about myself, my family, or my blog.  (hint:  read a few entries or even my about page and you'll have something.  lol)

Easy enough?  This is for US only (since I am paying for the gift card and shipping it) and will end Feb. 2 (aff).  Good luck!  (And make sure you check out the Bloggy Giveaways carnival for a ton more awesome contests!)

  1. You are really excited about your Disney vacation, you have entirely too much time on your hands (5 blogs?! – even if you are closing down one) and you honor those who serve our wonderful country.

    We love TJMaxx. I don't pay full price for anything if I can help it!

  2. You have been blogging since 2006. Have fun in your upcoming Disney vacation. I had a blast with my husband the last time we were in Disney World. We rented a condo outside of the Disney area and drive in each morning. Brought an Entertainment book for the coupons for meals (coupons are usually buy 1 get 1 free). Much cheaper that way.

  3. A true friend is not a friend that you can see and know that they are there without a doubt. A true friend is a friend you truly have faith in without a doubt. True friendship is when you don’t see that friend but you know that they are there and you learn to trust and believe in them…that one day you will see them without a doubt! I wa t everyone to feel this way…I WILL make everyone feel this way. Runescape gave me that chance…to know what true friendship really is. Together, we flew in the sky , over the ocean , in a dream that lasted forever! With unbroken bonds of the new existence. I DECLARE THESE BONDS UNBROKEN. I will fly with them forever in a dream that turns to the new reality.I am a blinding light made new, emptied of all preexisting darkness, and I will guide those in the darkness.Believe me..when I say I will do something, I will most likely do it eventually. I live to be the very best, not fine, not decent, good, amazing or outstanding. I live to be the very best.I burned fires of infinitism down the longest path that existed for eternity shedding tears…with my friends in the most magical and legendary lake of all time.These friends are the light that shines in the distant…you are the one in the darkness…looking for that light! That light. Is the only thing there to trust, you leave it to chance. One day you find it but it disappears. You can only have faith. That the light is still there. I found that light and I constantly lose it but I learn to trust it even more. I WILL win THIS. I DECLARE IT!!!!!!!!!!! This is how bad I want to win!


  4. Ahhhh a Disney vacation? Very cool!

    I grew up an hour away. Been there…..a million times! Still love it.

  13. Boy, do I love your blog header…it's so cool! You were one of 15 bloggers to attend the Sony Mommy Bloggers Event in April of 2008 and one of 15 bloggers invited to the Pampers Mommy Bloggers Event. That is something to be proud about! Have fun on your Disney trip!

  14. Ooh I love TJ Maxx!

You have like 5 blogs, but started posting contests here. You are going to Disney soon and you created a chain to do a Disney countdown. You know the secret about why people buy homes at the end of the month rather than at the beginning of the month. You work at home and have contests on your site all of the time.

    Big helpful hint: There's a book called something like "Unofficial Guide to Disney World". Buy one , read it ahead of time, highlight it, and make your plans now to get the most out of your Disney World trip – it is a fabulous fabulous book! When we went to DW, we saw many, many people carrying around this book as a guide. It tells you all sort of insider tips for saving money and making the most of your time there. If we went to DW again, I'd buy a copy too! Have fun!
