Happy Thanksgiving Give Away!

I was recently contacted by Caitlin at CSN Stores about doing a giveaway on my blog!  I am so excited to announce that we will be able to give a $55 gift card to one lucky, randomly selected winner!

For those unfamiliar with CSN stores, it is a website that houses shopping for 200+ stores in one convenient place.  You can find everything from children's backpacks to household items to toys, to shoes to pet stuff and everything inbetween!

Since one of my favorite days of the year, a day that I look forward to and plan on every year is Black Friday, and that special day falls this week, I think it is only fitting to give away this awesome gift card this Friday.  Let's say 8 PM (PST) on Friday, November 26.

The gift card will be emailed to you and can be used on ANYTHING at their store.  It could make for a Christmas gift for someone you love OR for something to spoil yourself with during this holiday season.  Here are some great things I came across.

DwellStudio Sparrow Backpack in Lilac  Totally matches the nursery!  and only $36.80.


Radio Flyer Classic Tiny Trike - 320 $79.99

Educational Insights 48 - piece Microscope Set $33.95

Global Amici Sonoma Spigot Jar and Stand $49.99


Schoenhut My First Piano in White - 1822W $49.99




Right now, we're averaging about 120-180 unique visitors a day (depending on whether there is a new blog posted that day ;P), so it would be awesome to get the followers count up.  Here is how you can win:

Leave a comment for each of the following, since the winner will be drawn at random using random.org, the more "tasks" you do, the better chance you have of winning!  You have the opportunity to have up to 5 chances to win.

1. Leave a comment that says you are following the blog :)
2. Leave a comment with what YOU are most thankful for this holiday season
3. Leave a comment to indicate that you shared the blog with someone who isn't already a reader
4. Leave a comment with what you would like to purchase if you won
5. Leave a comment with what other kind of giveaways you think would be fun in the future!

You're on my blog roll, so I suppose that means I share you with everyone who reads my blog each day. :-)

We'd probably buy something from Radio Flyer {maybe a trike}, since we love their products and we're looking for more "big boy" things for Little Rocker.

Yup Penny, so you would have a total of up to 5 different comments all on this entry :)

KCB said...

There are hundreds of "green" baby stores online, and you could do some giveaways of toys from some of those sites!

I am now a follower of your blog ♥ I also just wanted to say that I am so sorry for the loss of your precious baby boy. I lost my twin boys when my water broke at just 6 months pregnant (just 3 months ago). Much love to you!

Trena said...

I am most thankful for my two beautiful daughter's. And for my amazing husband. I would have been due a week before Christmas so this holiday season is rough to say the least. And without my family I do not know where I would be, they keep me going.

Trena said...

If I won I would use this for my husband. He's been my rock and he deserves something special, something just for him :)

I'm most thankful for my husband and kids and to finally be pregnant again after wanting and waiting for what feels like so long. I can't wait to hold another baby in my arms. <3

Tiffany said...

I have been following your blog for a while now and really enjoy all the updates on the family!

Tiffany said...

I am most thankful for my friends and family but most of all the Church Missionaries who stop by once a week to make sure that my family has what we need, to talk about anything we need to and to have discussion. I am so thankful for them to care of our family so deeply. they are very uplifting.

Tiffany said...

I have shared your blog with my best friend Jennifer. She enjoys all of the updates just as much as i do

Tiffany said...

If I were to win, i think i would purchase something for my twin daughters, they are turning 11 in december and have been such a huge help recently around the house and have been through a lot lately and they totally deserve something nice. they are my rocks.

tiffany said...

I haven't looked at the site yet, but if I won I think I would go for some kind of home decor since I never buy that kind of stuff. My walls are still practically bare after living here for 3 years!

Drea said...

Of course I'm following your blog. :)

Drea said...

I'm thankful for my family and friends. I have a wonderful support system that helps me make it through each and every day. Without them, I would be lost.

Drea said...

I share your blog with my co-workers. We were all following your pregnancy with Samantha very closely. ;)

Drea said...

I'd purchase the large building blocks. (The life size ones.) The kids and Andrew would get a kick out of it. :D

Drea said...

What about a giveaway to a local restaurant? Or even better, the name of your most trusted babysitter that we could borrow for a night out. :D

AmandaWillson said...

AmandaWillson said...

I am very thankful for such a great job! I have a little flexibility and enjoy what I do!

AmandaWillson said...

I woud use it toward Christmas presents as it's a tight one this year.

AmandaWillson said...

I think a baby or child type give away would be good!

Jen said...

I'm following your blog! I love reading updates about your family :))

Jen said...

I am most thankful for my precious children, my wonderful boyfriend, my family and friends! <3

Jen said...

I've shared this blog with my mom (who has released balloons with us for Matthew) and with a few of my friends. :)

Jen said...

If I won I would purchase something for the kids for Christmas!

Jen said...

I think some kind of "date night" giveaway would be fun! Something like dinner and a movie!

I want the Baby Bella Maya Active Baby Carrier Cover in Pink Champagne.

Jan said...

I SO stalk you. Repeatedly. And I specifically watch on FB to see when you have a new blogpost.

Jan said...

What am I most thankful for? I have to admit, I'm really trying to be a glass-half-full person. I miss my son, but am very thankful for my 3 living children. I don't like sub-zero weather, but I know I could be in Iraq or Afghanistan instead. I don't like getting up so early to have to go to work, but I am blessed to have a decent job. My house is a mess, but thankfully I still have a roof over my head, and enough things to clutter up the house. I really am blessed- and I keep forgetting that. It really struck home this Thanksgiving season.

Jan said...

Hmmm... looking thru their website... I could sure use a bocce ball or croquet set! :) CSN certainly has a nice selection.

Jan said...

I did share with my PPROM friend, Sara.
