Calling in a Favor

Alrighty, folks.  I’m going to ask you to help me out.  Today I am guest posting at The Bright Side Project.  They’ve been having a “Blogger’s Delight” month over there and have been giving away the favorites of a month’s worth of bloggers.  It was a harrowing experience and stressful wondering if my favorite people would contribute prizes.  (Some did, some didn’t.)  Tristan and Lindsey are ready to run into traffic after this month.  Let’s just say it was a doozy.

Still, 9 of my favorite brands agreed to donate 11 prizes for me!  That’s a lot of stuff for ONE person to win!

So you need to go over there and participate in my giveaway.  Folks, this is high school.  I need a guest post with a ton of comments or else it’s going to look like I’m a nobody giving away lame trinkets.  Now, I don’t expect to get OVER TWO THOUSAND COMMENTS like some people (Nicole, could you have maybe left a few people for me?!) but I need to at least be in line with the rest of the people in my week.  And by inline I mean blow them out of the water.

Are you ready to see and win my favorite things (and help me not look pathetic)?  Then click HERE.

p.s.  If you want, put a little :) in your comment at The Bright Side Project.  I would love to know who came from here to say hi.

    Long time reader, first time commenter. I totally related to your “man hands” issue! I know this is kind of ridiculous (and weirdly personal) but do you happen to have any lady “man-hand” friendly wedding ring situation advice?

    And I’m sure you hear this all the time, but your boys are precious and I especially love their nicknames!

    i better win that ring! just kidding. but you’re doing pretty well over there in the comments section! have a great holiday weekend :)

    I check the BSP every morning so I already entered. You’ve got some great giveaways so I don’t think you need to worry about being the socially awkward kid of the bunch.

    I started this year with a resolution that I was going to enter BSP every single day, if nothing else just as a quicky writing exercise. But sometimes the question just did not inspire me, and soon my resolution fell by the wayside. But your question? Now that subject is my middle name! 😉

  5. says

    So I left a smiley face on my comment because technically I found this giveaway in the feed of your blog before going over to Bright Side. But I would have gone over there anyway. So when counting :)’s, my comment should go in a toss-up column.

  6. Brandi says

    I just entered as well.. I use to always enter at the BSP..but, I never won, so I stopped. :( I’m not filled with bunches of imagination, I’m afraid.

    Unfortunately, my middle name isn’t really special either.. Thanks for the great giveaways though!

  7. says

    Oh sure, NOW you tell me! Although, this is somewhat creepy, because I commented this morning –and the thought crossed my mind that I should add a :) to the end … but I never do, so I don’t think I did. It was a long time ago … and I’ve since received a speeding ticket … so I’m all in a dither … and I can’t even get sympathy because, HELLO, I was speeding. Wretched luck.

    But I dgress …

    Anyway, your prizes are just too, too much. My head completely blew to the moon when I read your guest post!

    I came here after posting the comment, go figure. Anyway, can I give you a great big :) (a :D, really) because I forgot how much I love reading your writing. It’s kinda been like a car lurching forward in traffic: I remember you’re there and zoom. And then I forget and it’s like I’m stopped, waiting for a while, until I remember.

    Which, I have. Hopefully I won’t forget this time.

    I just discovered your blog…through the Bright Side… :)
    I LOVE your blog & have put you on my ‘Favorites” list. Will be checking back daily.
    I am going to spend lots of time reading your older posts…but just wanted to let you know how awesome you are for giving up all that temporary “stuff” in order to invest your time in something that lasts for eternity…namely, your relationship with your boys!
    You WILL be blessed for doing the ‘not so glamorous’ job of being a full time Mom.

    That is an easy favor! Have loved your blog and it has quickly become one of my favorites. Thank you for sharing!

  11. says

    Thanks, everyone. You all are awesome. :)

    Lauren, what were you looking at getting? I think you would be fine with just about anything as long as it’s not super thin and delicate. My set is very simple and about 1/3-1/2 of an inch thick. That’s the beauty of long fingers–you can pull off bigger, chunkier styles than most people. :)

  12. says

    All taken care of, my dear. : ) That was the easiest favor, ever. So hoping I win that fabulous group of goodies–what a giveaway! PS LOVE that picture of you!

  13. Jennifer W says

    Your post was awesome! I am relatively new to this space, but I must say a few things.
    1. you are so beautiful, you will knock ‘me dead at your high school reunion
    2. your frankness and funny wit make my days lighter
    3. I hope you get lots of comments on the bright side project website and you end up looking phenomenally cool!
