My Goody Box Giveaway



So, as I was washing the breakfast dishes (and I'm not gonna mention the time...cough, cough, 6 pm, cough) I began thinking about the giveaways being offered by bloggers around the internet. Since I have won a couple and I always want to give back, I decided I should have a giveaway of my own. I had an empty shoebox just sitting on the kitchen table, don't ask me why it was there, and I decided to fill it with a few new, never been opened items that I had on hand. If you're interested, I'm giving you a chance to win my shoebox. These are the items in my shoebox: 1) a bottle of Oil of Olay hydrating lotion. I have loved Oil of Olay for years! 2) A mini vacuum cleaner for your computer keyboard. 3) a Totes Key Finder. I can never find my keys, or sometimes my car but that's another story. 4) A car pillar pocket to hold your cell phone. Did I mention I can never find my cell phone? 5) A Clorox Bleach Pen. I will randomly pick a winner on February 14th.
** All you have to do to win this goody box is leave a comment with an email address. In that comment tell me if you're doing anything special for yourself or someone else on Valentine's Day. I'm making a heart shaped cake for my family and we're all going out to a movie.
** For an extra entry, go hug your kids and tell them you love them. I trust you, just tell me in a comment that you did some hugging.
** And if you want to mention this giveaway in your blog, leave a link back here and you can have another entry.

What a neat idea - all great things that I'd love to win - thanks. I plan to make heart cookies for my family and deliver a few to a few elderly in my neighborhood. Thanks!

Beth said...

I'm going to give hugs - promise!

I just got back from hugging my 5 year old. I try and do that a lot. We don't know how long we'll have her. Two kids in the house to go!

Special Valentine's day plans? I've got a surprise planned for hubby. Don't want to spill the beans but it involves chocolate. And I'm going to blog about your giveaway. I love Oil of Olay too!

~Sandy~ said...

I love these contest rules! Friday I am a "Mommy Teacher" at my son's preschool and I am teaching the kids in his class how to make homemade ice cream as a special Valentine's Day treat. Then they will be able to decorate their sundae's with tons of Valentine candy! I bought conversation hearts, red hots shaped like hearts, heart sprinkles and chocolate. Should be yummy!!! Then Sat. we have a little party at our house with family. I make dinner and everyone brings a Valentine Dessert to share (we are going to need to visit the dentist after this holiday is over!!!) Thanks so much for the fun giveaway :O)

I'm spending Valentine's Day weekend moving my best friend into her new house. I'll be 5 hours away from my hubby so we won't be doing anything on V-Day this year. I did make him some chocolate truffles and gave them to him last weekend. But it's worth it to be apart if I can help my friend!

My son is home sick today with a virus, so I have already hugged him and kissed him and told him I love him......so I just did it all again!

guru said...

I hug my daughter everyday. She is almost 14 so that should be stopping soon...
Valentine's day is on a Saturday, so we will probably go out to eat. Unless the weather is nice, then we will go to the lake and BBQ.

Gloria said...

Well, my husband requested that I make a lemon cake...don't ask me why he requested that - normally he isn't particular, he just said that he's in a "lemon cake mood," so I guess that will be on the menu! :D Other than that, not much else planned!

Gloria said...

The children have been hugged! I'm defintiely a hugging-kind-of-mommy, always hugging my 2 girls! :D

Linda and Greg said...

My husband and I are going to lunch and doing some shopping! Low key, but fun! Thanks!

Valerie said...

You are so smart. I love all of these items. All my children are grown so since I won't be seeing them today, I gave them a phone call hug- does that count? I think we are going to a banquet at our church for valentines day and then to a movie afterwards if we are not too tired.

Hi, Our family will be having our monthly game night which just happens to fall on Valentine's Day. We get together the 2nd Saturday of each month. For the adults we will be playing "The Newlywed Game". Our grandson will be coming up with the questions. He is 13 yrs old and I can't wait to hear these questions he will have for us. 2 of our granddaughters will be coming over before hand to decorate in a Valentine theme. We will have a meal together and then board games for everyone, young and old. I'm so looking forward to this evening. There will be lots of hugs!! Please enter me in your giveaway and have a Happy Valentine's Day. Thanks, Vicki (Friend to Val over @ Life
