FIRST EVER GIVEAWAY!! **CLOSED**

I don't know about you, but I love going out to my mailbox to check my mail for that one in a billion chance I got a card or a random check that I had forgot I was expecting. Then I get all bummed when all I get is junk mail and bills.

Well how about getting something in the mail the super cool and totally FREE?

CSNstores contacted me the other day and asked if I would be interested in doing a giveaway or a product review. I felt like someone had just handed me a bag of chocolate and told me I could either eat it all myself or share. And you know what a delimma THAT can be!

Honestly, I was tempted to go for the review because then I would get to keep the product!! But then, I decided that all you awesome people deserve something for taking sympathy on me and reading my blog. Even commenting once in a while so I didn't feel like I was talking to myself.

The cool thing about this giveaway is you get to choose between TWO products!

Looking for something ultra-fun for your kids or grandkids? Need to be the "cool" aunt or uncle? How about this!

The winner will be randomly choosen on Monday, January 18th!


And then I'll have to be totally jealous of the winner. =)
Good luck!!

How fun that you were chosen and nice of you to choose to give it away. I'd want to keep it too. :)
I'd love to win the fondue set. I've never had one and it looks fun.

JAY, DENISE, and JAMES said...

The Boikido Blocks would be pretty awesome for my son's first birthday, coming up on March 3rd!

And since this is the first comment I've left you, I suppose I should say who I am - a friend of a friend in Mississippi. I came across your blog many months ago from her blog and haven't been able to turn away since. I love your writing, and learning about all the fun big families have (not sure how big we'll get, but #1 is not even a year and we're already expecting #2...)

Angel Day said...

Oooh Sarah...I want the Boikido Blocks. I don't have a blog so I can't do the second part.

Elizabeth said...

Ooh, Serene, you must be famous if someone is asking you to do a giveaway!! Well, I showed William the picture of the blocks and asked if he would like those. He nodded emphatically, so blocks it is! I hope I win! :)

wonder woman said...

Those blocks are simply adorable. The fondue set would be fun, but I'm sure it wouldn't get as much use as the blocks. Unless I had a pot of chocolate simmering 24/7, but that's probably a bad idea.

So to be clear, the blocks.

Nicole said...

Blocks blocks blocks - sorry I don't comment often - I'm just not sure you even remember me, and I don't want to feel stalker-ish.

Emily C said...

Those blocks look like so much fun!

I love reading your adventures, Serene.

Marlyce said...

Well the blocks looks awesome but the fondue set would be fun too. How fun for you to be chosen. I think Kinley would love the blocks and just think, we're just around the corner so I bet you could borrow them. I'll totally give you a shout out on my blog.

Mindy said...

Way fun! Love both...but, I'm thinking that fondue set is calling me...and, saying "fill me up with some chocolate"!

Heidi said...

Hmmm. My siblings have already told me not to get their kids any more toys. And last year I was getting rid of the things I'd been saving for my own children. So the blocks are out.

And there's no special someone...unless I count myself. And as I've been saving for over a year to one day have a chance to go eat at The Melting Pot, I figured having one of my own would be fantastic. Because then I and my Special Me could have fondue whenever we wanted!!

Monica McCoy said...

OOo, I loke them both, I think I would want to have the blocks most though! I love giveaways!

anna banana said...

I like them both too, is there any chance of getting both? :) I might have to pick the fondue pot. Yeah I think I am going to go with fondue. :)

Heidi said...

I added to your famousness and wrote a blog entry about your giveaway at my LDS blog (http://beofgoodcheerlittlechildren.blogspot.com).

Congratulations on and enjoy your first giveaway!

Kim Coates said...

My kids would love the blocks! And that means that I would love them too. It would be wonderful to win them. Thanks for sharing.

Sarah said...

Fun! Be careful on this unless you want your blogging to become a business. The government is starting to keep track of these types of 'business' moves, even if you give it away, you may have to claim it on your taxes. I've lost my articles that talk about this, but it's becoming an issue as blogging gets to be more prevalent. I keep turning offers down because I don't want to mess with that right now.

If I were in the drawing, I'd so go for the fondue pot! And then Matt would laugh at me.

Renee said...

I could be selfish and want the fondue pot, but with one nephew already here and another on the way the blocks would be my pick. :)

Kim said...

I would love to win the fondue pot.

Alecia said...

I would love the fondue set! I looks super fancy and fun!

So a friend told me about your blog and I have passed that favor on to my friends! It always fun to have lots of comments and people reading your blog. I posted on my blog about your blog, give away, and great craft ideas! Check it out at www.mylifeasalecia.blogspot.com

Jess said...

Hello Serene! Cool idea to do something like this! I'm in for the blocks. Looks like fun.

By the way, the feet picture was cute and the paper cars, well, inspiring. Makes me want to have another bout at our encino-man-aftermath-finger-painting. :) LOL

Jess said...

Oh, I blogged you sista! Take a look! You are now officially FAMous!

Have fun!

Amy said...

fondue set! I want one so bad!

Pam said...

Oh man, I'm pretty sure that this Nana needs blocks for her sweet grands. I'm not sure that I know how to grovel for them - oh all right, I do too!

Let's see, I've never personally won anything, does that make you feel sorry for me? Um, I think your kids are really cute, and you're slightly nutty. Oh boy, that might not make me a winner. I meant that in a kind way!?!

I will definitely blog for you - tomorrow. In fact maybe I'll even add a story devoted just to you - in your younger years when you were known as Sarah that is. That blackmail ought to win me the blocks for sure!

I think you should post pictures of how you pick the winner. That would be sweet!

Good work coming up with something fun and out of the ordinary, even if you had help!

jana said...

I would LOVE to win a fondue set! I like chocolate a little too much but I know my family would go crazy over it too. I also hear you can melt other yummy things too. I want FONDUE!
I came across your blog from Jessica, and always thought your title was awesome.

Mama Smith said...

Being a "Granny" FIRST and ME second...I would go for the BLOCKS!!!

the Gardners said...

What fun! We would love to win those blocks. Some cousins have some similar and the kids love building with them!

the Gardners said...

I blogged about it! It's on our private blog, I think you have access, but let me know if you need it.

E said...

Dude you are like a real blogger!!! I would love to have the block set

Elizabeth said...

I blogged about your giveaway on my craft/project/idea blog:
thatsfamtastic.blogspot.com!

Indecisive said...

Those are two WAY different items to choose from! I guess if I could pick one I'd go with the one I'd use more... the fondue pot. :) The blocks are super-adorable, though!

Anonymous said...

Ohhh, have to choose one?? They are both awesome! Kiddos would love the blocks and we would all enjoy the fondue. Hmmmm...have to decide now???

Still thinking...
Maria :D

Michelle said...

Those blocks are so fun! We can never have enough "road making" stuff around here... Enter me!

Laura said...

Those blocks are awesome!! They would definitely be my pick.

Jennie said...

I'd have to go with the Boikido Blocks!
I know you don't remember me from College, but hope you have a great day!

Pam said...

I've added to your fame Sarah, just thought I'd let you know. :)

Kira said...

John wants the blocks. He is asking all about them.

Kira said...

Look! I even blogged it! But Mel would love a serious fondue pot. We kind of killed hers.

Andrea said...

I would love that fondue pot. All shiny and pretty! Love your blog.

Tarmy said...

I'd go for the blocks. They look awesome.

Brian and chelsea said...

Found your blog through my friend Michelle's. You are hilarious! Love your posts.

I would be thrilled to take either one! If I have to pick - the blocks. My 2 year old would love them.

Briann said...

I found your blog through my friend Michelle's, my daughter would LOVE the blocks, so so cute!

The Tanners said...

Oh serene! i love reading about your life! um, probably the blocks. Since we have a one year old he would most like those... though i secretly want the fondue thing.

Kadee said...

The fondue pot sounds awesome!

The Boyles said...

So I don't know if you remember us, but we knew you guys at Wymount :) - anyway we stumbled upon your blog through the Snows (Rick and Erica) and hope you don't mind. We have a little boy (it looks like almost the same age as your littlest one ) and think the blocks would be fun for him - so that would be our choice. Hope all is well with you guys!

Kris and Cami Boyle
P.S. Feel free to check out our blog

Nathan and Sharlynn Heinitz said...

I would love the Boikido Blocks for our little Hunter! How fun that you are doing a give away. I'm posting this on my blog right now. Thanks!

Anonymous said...

Okay, okay, I have decided; it would have to be the blocks. I still have a wheat grinder and bread maker in boxes that need to be used. At least the blocks would be used instantly! HA!

:D Maria

Courtney said...

How exciting to have your own giveaway! those blocks look like loads of fun!

pennylutz said...

I'd love the blocks! My kids would love them too.
