$50 Giveaway with CSN Stores *CLOSED*

My neighbors have this really great wooden swing set which my kids are allowed to play on whenever they want.

'Cause my neighbors are cool like that.

My children can see it from our back, kitchen window and will often gaze lovingly at it and ask when it will be warm enough to play on again.


But when you live in the frozen tundra of Thewindwillfreezeyourfaceoffville, one can only gaze out over the 700 feet of snow and say cheerfully, "Soon!" Then mutter under your breath, "Maybe... I hope." And then try not to remember that 4th of July last year was freezing.

If you live somewhere warm and exotic, we will try not to hate you. *evil stinky eye looking your way*

But we make no promises.

Anyhow, in honor of the cabin fever we are all experiencing here, and in hopes that spring will be here really, really, really, really, really soon, CSN stores is offering one of you fabulous readers a $50 promotional code to be used at any of their 200+ stores to help you with the winter blues!

Wahoo! I may just have to enter my own giveaway! Perhaps I could disguise my name to something super cryptic like, "This is NOT Serene".

I'm feeling pretty confident that would keep my identity safe.

How to enter:

Just leave me comment saying how much you love and adore me and my blog and the person with the best flattery wins!

What... No? Pish fine.

Just leave me a comment telling me how much chocolate you'll send me if you win!

No? *sigh* Fine, I guess we'll just have to make it fair for everyone then.

**How to REALLY enter:

Just leave me a comment with your email address so I can get in touch with you if you win!

**For a second entry, blog, Facebook, or tweet about this giveaway (you only have to do one of those things) and come back to let me know in a separate comment!

Good luck to all! This giveaway ends next Monday, March 7th at midnight MST, and the winner will be chosen using random.org.

Oh, and uh, if you see someone enter the giveaway under the name "Not Serene" Or "Chocoholic Anonymous" just know, it's NOT me.

Eh hem... really!

I want to win! (And I deserve it too, because our grass has been covered in snow since before my baby was born in November! I can hardly even remember what it was like to not be covered in snow... Do you feel sorry for me yet?)

Think I can find someone on CSN who will buy my house? They have to sell someone for $50 who will do that, right?

Renee said...

Wow!!! There are so many things I can spend this on there!! Plus chocolate!!!

MommyJ said...

Free stuff is awesome. And seriously... CSN sells EVERYTHING.

Amanda Joy said...

I DO think your blog is awesome, I DO think free stuuf is great, and I DO wish I was eating a piece of the homemade German Chocolate Cake my mom made for my step dad's birthday last night.

Looks like I hit all three criteria:)
