Bloggy Giveaway

Giveaway has been closed. Please check here for the winner!

It's that time again...For the Bloggy Giveaway Carnival!


Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button


I participated in the last one and it was a lot of fun and I got to "meet" a ton of new people. I deemed it a success and so I'm doing it again.

This time one lucky commenter will win a $10 Target Gift Card.

(Me giving away a Wal-Mart gift card the last time and then expressing how I disliked Wal-Mart didn't go over so well with some people. I think someone actually called me a snob too!)

Anyway, the rules are the same but I'll post them again for any newbies:

1. You must leave a comment here on this post.
2. You must also take a look around my site and leave a comment on another post as well. (And if you're already a regular commenter here than you of course only need to leave a comment here on this post.)
3. You must have a US or Canadian mailing address.
4. You do not need to be a blogger to win but you must supply a valid email address so I can contact you if you win.

Winner will be chosen Saturday, November 1st by random.org. Winner will be given 2 days to respond or a new winner will be selected.

[Added Note: And remember - the requirement to win is that you leave a comment here and on another post. I have several people who don't qualify right now because they haven't followed the directions!]

That's it! Let the fun begin. And don't forget to check out More giveaways at the Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival!

Joy @ Joy Of Desserts said...

Thank you for the chance to win this gift card. I like both Target and Walmart. We hear a lot of negative press about Walmart, but I am very THANKFUL to Walmart. I wrote all about what they did a few posts ago on my blog, should you be interested.

If you take the time to visit, be sure to enter my giveaway too. It's a fun cooking/hospitality book.

And our thanks to your husband for protecting our country. My husband and I both come from military families too. :-)

Target, Wal-Mart, CVS...I could use any of them!

Shalee said...

Personally, I prefer Walmart. They do more for the communities than Target does, plus every Walmart I've been in has a Wall of Heroes that displays local military men.

That being said, there is a Target around the corner from our house, so the distance so much easier when I need something quickly.

Thanks for the offering.

Anonymous said...

You aren't a snob! As long as there are readers, there will be nasty comments. You can't please everyone.

I love Target. I would use the card to buy cute new socks. I don't need new socks, but I want them. This would justify it. :-)

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.
