Here It Is! #200 with a GIVEAWAY!


teehee

Changed my mind again... all the new thoughts are at the bottom.
We are almost there!
GO! GO! GO!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And since I can't find some random pic of the #200 off of the intermajiggernet then you will have to settle for my cheezy homemade graphic.





And if you want to know what 200 calories worth of just about any food looks like then click on the 200 calories worth of smarties pictured below, which looks much more appetizing than 200 calories worth of ketchup. :-D



Here is my idea! I want to do a giveaway to celebrate my 200th post and my birthday on the 21st but I'm not quite sure what I am going to give away.

All you need to do is leave a comment
ON THIS POST

telling me that you are interested in getting whatever the prize turns out to be. Leave as many comments as you want because each one will be counted as an individual entry...

On May 31st I will tally all the entries the old fashioned way and draw the winner at random.

THE ONLY CATCH is that each comment must say something different even if it only contains one word. LOL.

I'll even give you some examples of acceptable comments to leave...

"Becky, you rock!"

"I love your blog!"

"You are sooooooo funny!"

"I laugh every time I come here"

"You are beautiful."

"Hilarious."

"Delightful."

...and so on.
You could even mean it. :-p

AND

I will be adding little notes here on this post each day until the entry period comes to an end (on May 31st) so keep checking back and leaving new comments.


AM I NUTS!!!!!

Well,

you have seen my profile pic right? HA!

BUT WAIT... THERE'S MORE!

Since my birthday is on the 21st of May then the 21st commenter will win a prize!

AND

If I reach 100 comments the 100th commenter will win a prize...

AND

If I reach 200 comments the 200th commenter will also win a prize!

I do not expect that to happen since I average around 12 comments per a post, but wouldn't that totally rock if it DID!!!

200!!!

Can we do it!?!
I want to try don't you?

So tell ALL your friends to come on down and leave a comment right here on this post and they too will be entered in to win
WHO KNOWS WHAT!
LOL!




Lets do this for fun!

Lets do this cuz its my birthday!

Lets do this because, at least for now, it is still a free country.

Lets do this because I am feeling like having a bit of fun and you all are benefiting from that!



YIPPEE SKIPPEE!!!!!

So I tell My Love all about my plans for my giveaway and my goal to reach 200 comments and ya know what he says. "200!?! You've never even reached 50!"

:-( Yeah, thanks, I'm aware of that, nice of you to point it out though :-p

Well, how about it my friends and giveaway junkies... are you ready to help me squash the bejeebers out of My Love's doubts? Please feel free to mention my giveaway on your blog... its totally not required and there are no extra entries for doing so, but it may boost my number of comments and then I can rub it in My Love's face... er... I mean show him I can do anything I set my mind to.

BTW I did my grocery shopping tonight and picked up a few surprises for the winners...

teehee.

WOW!!! Look at you all go! I am already up to 93 comments! SWEET! I never really thought I could get to 200 but now I am thinking HOT DOG I may have a chance. After all, we have until May 31st. Of course if I reach 300 comments then that means another prize for the 300th commenter. I love seeing some of your creative ways to post. You crack me up. HA!

Again, if you want to mention my giveaway on your blog that would be just fine and dandy. I'm not trying to get new followers, I don't want to be queen of blogland, I am just out for a bit o' fun. Just trying to do a bit of paying it forward so to speak. I have been blessed so I want to bless. Put a smile on one or two...or five of your faces ;-) Besides we should get some newbies in here to pull some of the weight of reaching MY goal of getting 200 comments (or more) on one post which has nothing to do with anything really. ;-)

OH! And congrats to Robin at Be Still and Know for being the first prize winner with comment #21.

It can happen to you too. :-D

YEEEEEEEEHHAAAAAAAAAW!!!!!

You did it! You helped me reach 100 comments.

You guys (and by that I mean girls) ROCK!

~AND~

Congrats to Skoots1mom for being commenter #100!!!

Yay for you! :-D

See, you don't have to be one of those crazys who leave 50 one word comments to win ;-)

And I CAN call you crazys because it takes one to know one HA!?!

On to 200!

Can we do it?

Yes we can!!!

So I thought I would just clarify a few things for my own sake as well as yours because this post is a crazy read.

1. My birthday has not happened yet. I appreciate all the belated Bday wishes though. The actual day I turn 33 (I know, I'm a baby) is the 21st of May... hence the reason the person who left the 21st comment wins a prize.

2. Only comments on this post count as entries, but you are welcome to post all you want on my other posts ;-)

3. May 31st is the last day to comment. I will do one random drawing of all the entries including previous prize winners. Then I will do another random drawing of those who have not won anything. YAY!

4. I will announce the winners on Wednesday, June 3rd.

5. I may throw a few more prizes out there... because I'm crazy like that :-p

I have been picking out things here and there for prizes. There is some chocolate there are a few garden knick knacks, a useful item or two. Really I won't know exactly what you have won until you win it, LOL. Kind of exciting huh?

I think that is all I had to say... Keep commenting, keep telling your cyber friends to stop by... 200 cometh!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Added at 11:58pm Thursday, May 20th

I don't care what you say... its true... there is no denying it... I'm a dork :-p

Now before you try to disagree let me tell you that I went all day being depressed because there were no new comments on my giveaway postipoo :-(

I was sad and dismayed and feeling a little abandoned.

Pathetic I know, but my life is so small. ;-)

I was even more shocked to log on a few minutes ago only to find the number of comments unchanged from this morning.

Then I went to my dashboard... and... a note was waiting for me...

You have 5 new comments waiting to be moderated.

I forgot that this post is aging (LOL, just like me) and I have comment moderation on for posts over 5 days old (ya know, so I don't miss anything nice you have to say about me).

So thanks for not abandoning me (I'm so fragile *sniff*)... (rolling eyes) and thanks for putting in your two cents toward 200 comments.

Don't let my dorkiness dissuade you from reaching our goal! Comment away and I'll be by to publish them ASAP!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I had a great birthday... thats it.

OH. FYI... you don't have to scroll over all the comments. Over the first comment there is a little underlined note which reads "Jump to comment form". Click it and ZAPPO there's the little box ;-)

I. Am. Tired. I worked tonight. Not for very long. Three and a half hours. But at the end of the day... even Saturday... it wiped me out. I smell like pizza. You would think that was a good thing. They acted as though I have worked ther for months. I had only actually worked there two hours. I did OK considering I was thrown into the dinner rush on my second day. I'm not complaining, just stating the facts.

Also signed James up for soccer today. He needs to run. and run. and run. The boy has a lot of energy. It needs to be focused.

Kiah and James have both had their training wheels removed from their bikes. They are doing well. Kiah is getting more brave by the day but James is taking to it a little slower than I expected. Now all I have to do is get Marli potty trained and we'll be all ready for family camp in July.

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. God Bless!

We are almost there and just six days to go. At last check there were 175 comments.

YOU GUYS ROCK!



Happy Memorial Day!


God Bless America!

Added at 12:03am on Tuesday, May 26th

Well, you did it! You helped me reach over

200 comments on one post.

Who was the 200th commenter???

Congratulations DaNella @ Beyond Microbursts!

You earned it! LOL!

So now that we are at 206 comments (and counting) and still have five days to go, I just have one little question...

Who will be commenter 300?


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Added at 12:58am on May 29th

Thank you to all my faithful participants. You still have three days to enter... sure hope the prizes I come up with are worth it.

Maybe if we reach 300 I will add a bonus to each prize winners package.

And of course comment 300 will win a prize.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Are you having fun yet?

Hi Becky, I think it would be funny to give your ugly mug, from the ugly mug contest to the one who gives the lamest comment.

Jennifer said...

It just seems wrong to hurry and post twenty times in order to be the 21st poster, so I'll refrain.

Andi said...

"Becky, you rock!"

"I love your blog!"

"You are sooooooo funny!"

"I laugh every time I come here"

"You are beautiful."

"Hilarious."

"Delightful."

And I mean every one....

In hindsight i should have done that in several different comments to increase my odds.....

kelliebean said...

Happy #200!

kelliebean said...

Hey, look, I'm commenting again! :)

Incidentally, you ARE hilarious!

kelliebean said...

Karen Deborah said...

Becky you do rock and you are a bit crazy!
hummm, things to say....

your a very good photographer.

your kids are adorable.

I liked your ugly mug quest. Only some of the mugs you thought were ugly I thought were ok.

Your birthday? Do you uh want us to try and guess your age?

Is this prize going to involve chocolate?

Does this count for 6?

Pam from alertandorientedx4 said...
