Bloggy Giveaway!!

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button

They are having another Bloggy Giveaway Carnival and I'm so excited.

I'm a little late getting my giveaway posted but that's because I've spent so much time visiting other sites and their giveaways that I almost forgot about my own.

I have for one lucky commenter a $15 gift card to Wal-Mart!

Now I know some of you are saying WAL-MART??? What you love Target and won't shop at Wal-Mart!

Hence the reason I have this gift card to give away. I happen to have just gotten it recently and figure why not give it away to someone that would use it.

The only thing I ask is that to enter you not only leave a comment here on this post but you also leave one on another post as well. And not just a "Hi" either - I want something thoughtful. And if you're already a regular commenter here than you of course only need to leave a comment here on this post.


The only other rules I have:

1. You must have a U.S. or Canadian mailing address.
2. You don't have to be a blogger to win - but I do need a valid email address.

The contest will end at 11:59 on Friday August 1st. I will draw the winner using random.org on Saturday or Sunday (depending on our hectic schedule for the weekend). I will email the winner and the winner will be posted here sometime on Monday.

If I don't hear back from you in 4 days, I will be forced to pick another winner.

And don't forget to go back to Bloggy Giveaways and check out other great giveaways going on now!

Ah, but Walmart is better than nothing. Somehow...target hasn't quite grown on me. Of course, I've only been there a couple times, it's so far away.

Now I'll go comment on something else.. :)

Doreen said...

Alitheia said...

Walmart huh? well, I guess I'll just have to stock up on packing supplies if I win, I like Duck better then Scotch, they use more recycled materials, aren't heck to open, and are one of Walmart's few products made in the USA =)Thanks for offering this! *off to check out your other posts and comment on something =)

Hil'Lesha said...

I actually like our new Wal-marts. It's clean and the people are actually friendly. I love their mark down bakery items.

Pate Family said...

I like Target and Walmart so I would love it! I'm going to go read/comment on some of your other posts!

Reiza said...

I'm not a huge fan of Volde-Mart, but I do shop there. I can't beat the prices anywhere else. I love getting Wal-Mart gift cards because you can use them at the gas pumps and get gas for 3 cents less per gallon when you use the card (same goes for the Volde-Mart credit card, but we don't have one of those).

This is my first visit here. I found you through the Carnival.

Rebekah said...

Target is great, but who would not shop at Walmart! You can get anything there! :) Thanks for the giveaway.

InnaC said...

I don't see anything wrong with shopping at WalMart.

ToadMama said...

Hey, if I win, pick another person. I just HAD to comment about a recent post on SpouseBuzz. It didn't bash Wal-Mart too horribly, I just liked the title.

By the way, this is my first time manually adding links in a comment. If they are screwed up after I publish this, I'll fix it somehow.

Monkey's Momma said...

Hi! Nice to meet you. Thanks for the giveaway! I'm off to read the rest of your blog. Come visit me sometime.

samsakara said...

I always shop in Walmart since there kids clothes are affordable. Thanks for the great giveaway.

samsakara@twcny.rr.com

Qtpies7 said...

I shop walmart a lot more than
target because they have FOOD, too, so I get it all done in once trip. Our target doesn't have food, so not an option.

Sierra said...

I love Target, too, but Wal-Mart is SO much closer, so I end up shopping there a lot more often! This would very much come in handy! Thanks so much! :)

Ronnica said...

I haven't become a Target snob yet (can't afford to!) so no shame there. Walmart has great prices, especially on toiltries!

Becky said...

I love WM too! We really need this to help with back to school! Thanks for the chance!

Lisa said...

Something thoughtful???? hummm still not feeling it...ummm, ohhh, I think your terms of endearment are funny.

Gina said...

We're not big walmart shoppers either, but we are big Sams Club shoppers and hit walmart whenever we have to go over there, so this would be something useful for us.

Thanks for the chance.

Annabelle said...

We shop Walmart all the time

majellamom said...

We are really really rural (i.e. we are 1 1/2 hours from the nearest WalMart, and about 3 hours from the nearest Target)...so whenever we travel anywhere there is bound to be a WalMart stop along the way! I would gladly take this gift card off your hands!

Wehaf said...

I can always use a Wal-Mart card. I commented on the post about kissing. :)

Thank you.

Angie(quillysilly) said...

I can always use a Wallie world GC! I also commented on your dinner post...

Thanks,

Thanks for the giveaway! This would really make my day!

Melbert's Awesome said...

Walmart would be so wonderful! Thank you for the opportunity!

By the way, I commented on your "what do you say when...?" post. My husband likes that song for the repetition he says (I believe him since he liked Britney Spears and currently Jonas Brothers as well...yikes!)

I show the love to Walmart every Monday with my weekly grocery shopping (although I do love me some Target, too)!

Off to read some more posts and comment :).

Ellen said...

some days I would like to stop shopping at walmart (it's a bit of a mess here and needs some TLC) but I can't help myself :)

Tara said...

we don't have Target in Canada so I would LOVE to win a Walmart card! Thanks so much!

Tammy said...

Well I do have list issues - but not Wal-mart ones, so I'd be happy to take this off your hands (you could even write that down on a list if you like *send Tammy Wal-Mart gift card*)

Charity said...

It is really nice of you to think about others. Thanks

kamewh said...

Even though I try to avoid it I end up shopping at Wal-mart about once a month! This GC would definitely make it a better experience! Thank you for the giveaway!

Zombie Money said...

Thanks! Cool contest :)

Lilith Silvermane said...

I would buy school supplies from there with it! Then avoid it again for another few months :)

claire said...

I don't like Wal-Mart either, but we're also in the military and Wal-Mart is all we have in our little town here (except for our tiny BX). However, if i win I'll definitely use it! Thanks for the giveaway. claireroach81(at)hotmail(dot)com

Suzie G. said...

I much prefer Target to WalMart, but Target doesn't have a craft department. *cries* So sometimes I have to go to WalMart.

FaithfulMommy said...

I heart Target too, but I can always use the GC for diapers at Wally World. :)

Mommy Mary said...

I do love target, but we get our diapers, and Wilton cake supplies at wal-mart, plus cheap clothes for hubby and I.
Thanks for the giveaway!

Katrina said...

I would love to win! Thanks!

Alaina said...

I do prefer Target, too but Wal-mart is close and so I shop there some. I would use it for baby stuff!

Preppy Mommy said...

I don't live far from a W-M and I'd use it for school supplies. Thanks for the chance to win. Visit mine at www.mypreppypurse.blogspot.com

Ginny said...

I don't normally like Walmart, however they just started selling an 18" bike that I really want to get my daughter. The gift card would help her get it quicker!

laura said...

Oh, I can easily spend $15 at walmart! ha, ha. Thanks for a great giveaway.

Mel, A Dramatic Mommy said...

I'll certainly keep it safe for you. Our school asks parents help with supplies. I'm at WalMart all the time when school starts. Thanks!

Kimberly said...

I actually prefer Walmart over Target (I just don't like my local Target for some reason). And it would come in very handy for back to school shopping (supplies can be so much $$$).

Thank you for a generous giveaway.

Rachel C. said...

Well, unfortunately, there is NO target for miles and miles around, so I have no choice but to shop at WalMart. Well, I mean, I could pay more elsewhere, so I do choose to go to WalMart...you know what I mean! :) Thanks so much for the giveaway!

myshadow28(at)aol(dot)com

Tara said...

well since wal-mart is 1 mile from my house and target is 25, i can use a wal-mart card!

Someone Being Me said...

I do love Target but I still find myself going to Walmart more often. Walmart is closer and typically cheaper.

Brittany said...

I go to Wal-Mart for grocery shopping. I could definitely use this!

Tes283 said...

Left a comment on What do you say when.....

I am a Wally-world shopper so this GC is perfect for our family.

I love the clearance DVD bin at Wal-Mart. Thanks!

We have three Walmart's within 5 miles of us, but they are the only "major" store within 25 miles at the moment so we shop there quite a bit!

fertawert AT yahoo DOT com

World's Greatest Mommy said...

I shop at WalMart when I need a good deal, and Target when I need to get out of the store fast.

I shop way too much at both, though.

This would come in very handy for back to school. I started making lists of stuff today and wanted to cry.

Karen said...

Walmart's not my favorite store, but for a free gift card I would make an appearance.

cmartin0055 said...

Wally world rocks!

Jinxy and Me said...

KJ said...

The WalMarts around here are hit and miss. Some are very nice and then there are some where the customers don't give a hoot and they break things and make messes.

However, I have found many a bargain at WalMart.

Thanks for your generosity!

Molly C. said...

If I win, I will put this away for Black friday shopping.

Heather said...

I "hate" Walmart -- but DUDE-- the diepaer and wipes are the cheapest around and I will be needing to buy those again a in few weeks! #3 is due by the end of AUg.

cl said...

I'm not a huge walmart shopper, but I do go there about once a month. What I don't like about walmart is how every store feels the same. But I do like that they are in walking distance (a little over a mile) and sometimes you can't beat walking to the store.

lovedandamazed said...

Hey, I'll take a WalMart card. :-)

Something thoughtful: I am super-dee-duper tired tonight after a marathon week of teaching VBS. There was crazy stuff going on at home - and this giveaway carnival to occasionally consider :-) - but mostly I tried to just be with the Lord and do what He would have me to do. I was blessed to get to pray with one girl to receive the salvation of the Lord Jesus last night, and tonight in my class I gave an invitation and one boy responded whom my helper got to lead to understanding and acceptance of God's free gift. I am so, so pleased... amazed... and blessed to have been a part of it all, but very ready to have some rest days now. :-) It has been good and I am thankful!

What do you have to say?

OBSCENITY ALERT:

This Blog is my outlet. It's where I share my thoughts and feelings. It's a place where I can vent. Not everyone thinks alike. People don't always share the same religious or political views. Some people (like me!) occasionally think in more “colorful” terms than others. Sorry, but I'm a big girl and can use cuss words and talk about not-so-mainstream stuff if I want to. If you find that sort of language offensive / shocking / annoying, you may want to stop reading now. Life as a military wife ain't always pretty. It's my life, though, so don't say I didn't warn you.
