A Giveaway with TWO Winners - Hilary Weeks CDs

At 8:15am this morning, I came up from downstairs to find Jacob and Alayna and taken every single shoe out of my closet and had them piled up in the middle of the living room floor.

How do they do that? Seriously, I was downstairs for what... three minutes?

That's pure talent I tell you.

Now if only they could be that fast in cleaning up their messes, I would be even more impressed!

Then hire them out to other people. I can always use some extra cash.

*awkward silence*


What?


Anyway, I'm excited to get another giveaway started! Actually, here's what's cool. There are going to be TWO WINNERS because there are TWO items to win!!


Item One

A while ago, I won't even begin to tell you how long ago as it is just flat out embarrassing, Deseret Book sent me what was at the time, Hilary Weeks new book called, "Bedtime and Naptime and bedtime and naptime..."

It's a cute, fun little book where she tells a bunch of funny motherhood stories from her life, while throwing in a recipe here and there, topped off with a little advise.

It truly is a great little book, very funny. And it also contains a bonus cd! Hilary has a knack for changing the lyrics to songs and turning them into a hilarious "oh we have SO been there" song. Watch this little video to see a few examples! 


For those of you who have been long-time readers of this blog, you'll remember when, a little over a year ago, I posted this cute little video that my friend Heidi had made using pictures from my blog. 

It's fun. This song is also on the CD.



Item Two

Deseret Book has also graciously offered to giveaway a copy of Hilary Weeks newest album called, "Every Step." I'm so excited that they are willing to do this for you guys. I LOVE Hilary Weeks!




Here is one of the songs on there. I hope you'll watch it. It's SO good. A bit of a tear-jerker that really puts our lives into perspective.



So, think you might like a copy of either one?

Winner One will receive the book/cd.

Winner Two will receive the new album.

MANDATORY:
-Leave me a comment, with your email. Any comment will do. Maybe your thoughts on her songs?

Or maybe more bribe attempts to get the random number generator to pick you.

Those were awesome.

OPTIONAL FOR BONUS ENTRIES:
- Blog, Tweet, or Facebook about this giveaway and send me the link.
- Follow this blog or Like it on Facebook.

(If you already do, just say so in seperate comments and that counts as an entry)

That's it! Three entries max. And PLEASE leave a separate comment for each entry. The giveaway will run through Wednesday December 21, ending at midnight.

Good Luck!

(Please remember this is not typically a giveaway blog. It's just for the month of December!)

Hi Serene! Here's my comment: I love free stuff. My inner cheapskate compels me to enter most contests :-)

Brittney said...

You don't know me, but I've been blog-stalking you for a long time now.(ok, a year) I found you via my friend Kristen and have been using you as my "time-out" ever since. You make me laugh and laugh so hard! You also make me cry and envy you. Not all the kids and mess (I have my own, so). No, your super fun and cute personality. I've told Kristen that if you ever went private that I would be completely lost. You're like my chocolate. I love your blog that much. Anyho, that was my introduction. Creepy as it may be, I'm sticking to it. I just wanted to say that your post this morning was exactly what I needed to read. I'm talking about the video your friend Heidi made and the quote at the end. To save you the really long, boring story of why I needed to read it, let me just say that I ended up bawling uncontrollably. I have now posted that quote on almost every surface of my house. No, not really. Just in the most important places.
I understand that you have lots of readers and, therefore, many to pick from for this double giveaway. If you are still reading, I would love to be considered. I am a new fan of Hilary Weeks and had so much fun listening to her songs you shared. Thanks!
And thanks for sharing your blog! I can't tell you how much I've loved reading!

That video of your family was so perfect for that song. I've loved that song for many years now.

And Hilary's new one is incredible, too. I'm going to have to reapply my mascara after watching that video, and I've even seen it before.

I love that later song and I think I might ask for the book as a last Christmas present. :)

At your house you have a pile of shoes, and at my house I have a missing shoe. I've been looking for it for over an hour. It's actually my 3 year old son's shoe, and since it's missing he has no other option then to wear his snow boots everywhere...hey, maybe that was his plan...huh!

Megan Jones said...

So I'm totally crossing my fingers for the book. Why? Because I love to read. And that's as close as I'm going to get to being a mom right now-living vicarilously through others!

Oh, and I already like/follow your blog on facebook. Does that mean I'm out for the second chance? Bummer...oh well...unless the random generator takes pity on me? No? Okay.

You can reach me as wiggnbill over at that yahoo place.

That Who you are song was just what i needed to hear tonight. Sometimes with just my one child I get so frustrated and feel so irritated and overwhelmed, and then i feel guilty for feeling that way.. wash, rinse, repeat. I would love either of these prizes, especially if they can help me on days that are frustrating. :D

Bass Family said...

Oh, and also my email is goodspeedenator at gmail dot com. And i am posting a link for this on my blog.

Well, you know I love Hilary Weeks songs! :-) Her music (and Josh Groban's) were some of the only things that pulled me through my toughest times. Saw her at Time Out for Women 2 years ago and loved her even more!
