3 Winner Giveaway

September 15, 2008

Wow 600 posts! I can’t believe it. That went so fast.

It has been a fun ride; writing about my kids, parents, friends, life, doing meme’s, creating a weekly meme, participating in product reviews, holding blog give aways, and more. 4 blogs later I am a total blogaholic and loving it!!

Now for the Give Away sponsored by Unique Skin! 3 lucky readers will win $15.00 to spend on a Unique Skin!

You may not remember, but I did a Product Review on Unique Skins here.

What exactly are Unique Skins?

They’re adhesive-backed vinyl pieces pre-cut to fit your electronic device. While the term skin can also refer to silicone or hard plastic products on the market for the iPod, Zune, mobile phones, laptops and more (see my review for more information and a picture of the laptop cover I got).

Give Away Details:

  • Head over to Unique Skin.
  • Come back here and tell me your favorite skin.
  • Contest deadline: September 27th at midnight.
  • Subscribe to my feed for another entry.
  • 3 random winners will be drawn and notified by email.
  • You have 3 days to claim your prize or another winner will be chosen.

Well, this morning we held the official drawing for my very first giveaway. It was so much fun and I can’t wait to hold another one. I printed out everyone’s comments, cut them up, folded them, put them in the Official Box or in this case an empty coffee can/plastic thingy.

Here is how it went down……………….

The winner of Maria’s Space very first blog giveaway is Ma Val (congratulate her if you have a chance). I will be sending out her package early this week and also will try to visit as many of you as possible.

Be on the look out for more giveaways from this blog and my other blogs.

Manic Monday – Will

June 16, 2008

Will the Word of the week from Mo at It’s A Blog Eat Blog World brings up 3 very specific thoughts for me.

1 – Will – The document that will enpower me long after I am gone to make sure that my children are taken care of should their father and I leave them before their adulthood.

We have talked about who we would want to take care of the kids and we have spoken to that person as well but we have yet to actually pay a lawyer to do the paper work for us.

A friend of mine recently did her will with her husband and again I am thinking about it.

2 – Will – I ever get out of debt with the IRS. This year my husbands company did well but not well enough for us to pay them the huge sum of money we owe. If you have ever owed the IRS you know their fees are higher than the Mafia (why did I captialize mafia?)

3 – Will my son be going to Kindergarten this year? I am still on the fence about this. I am not sure which one I should be beefing for September. Do I celebrate the whole big boy going to Kindergarten or should I show him his new preschool? I am going to take the next two months and decide by August. The school is ok with this decision so why not take my time?

Kelsey Briggs Day is April 28th.

May you rest in peace Kelsey and never feel pain again.
