Another Holiday Contest

Okay, I'm going to be brutally honest here. I came this close /\ to not posting about this contest. Why? Because then you'll all go enter & I may not win!!! Seriously.

However, it's too good not to share so I figured I had to just bite the bullet & post about it. Besides - that gives me an extra entry. ;-)

Five Minutes for Mom is hosting another holiday contest. The prize?? Well, obviously it's amazing or I wouldn't be blogging about it. Do you really want to know? Are you sure? Okay, already! It's a $500 gift card to Home Depot and yes, that is the correct number of zeros.

Why do I keep sharing about all these neat contests? Well, here's the truth. I have won - three times now. Pretty cool huh?

My first prize was my amazing blog makeover. I posted about that here and here. Then I had entered a ton of giveways during the Great Bloggy Giveaway. There were literally thousands of things that were given away. I entered a few dozen. I thought I hadn't won anything. But then...a few weeks later I received an e-mail -which I almost deleted thinking it was spam. Phew! I won a Star Wars Clone Wars digital camera. That made me VERY happy and will be making son #2 even happier when he has a birthday this coming April. ;-) And the newest prize? A Nerf Vulcan automatic toy dart gun. That arrived in the mail this week. I seriously had to about tear it from my hubby's hands in order to put it away for one of the boys - after I wiped off the drool. We decided that our oldest will have that under the tree this Christmas. We may have to invest in some more for the other kids & hubby, but not yet.

So, it is possible to win. It's easy to enter. And, Chip, yes, I know if I was using Twitter I could enter again. You'll be one up on me - again. LOL


  1. I agree. It's hard to post about contests because even though I want happiness and goodies for everyone, I want them FIRST ;)

    I will send you a link to a blog that is NOTHING but contest links. It's DA DOMB, baby! (say it in your Austin Powers voice.....)

  2. How very cool that you have won those contests!!! Congratulations!

  3. Awesome that you've won so many things lately!

  4. Well, using twitter may give me a one up but I'm not as persistent at entering these contests - more like pessimistic. Why pessimism? I have won only two things in my lifetime - one was a pair of snow shoes from a local clothing store (Griffins) in High School and thee years ago I did win the Father's day grand prize ($400 value) of a stainless steel grill. Keep entering


Oh thank goodness! I'm not here all alone. Thanks for leaving me a comment. It helps that I'm not always talking to myself. Right? Hello?
