Hey you over there... yea, you.... (GIVEAWAY!)

I want to meet you! I noticed that I have 36 followers (!!!!) Holy cow, now people actually read what I'm saying and notice when I don't use semicolons or dashes correctly. The pressure! I like you guys, every time I write on my blog it's kind of like calling my best friend and chatting! Except, some of you BFF's out there don't chat back, so I'm sittin here babbling on, and then I'm all like 'hello? hello? did AT&T drop my call again??'

Exciting news, this is my 99th post. That means 100 is the next, and I think that deserves a giveaway! (cue exciting music) My first one ever! Want to be part of this giveaway? The giveaway that I have yet to name because it's THAT awesome that I'm waiting to reveal it til my 100th post....

Well then comment! Right here, right now! I want to know some things though...
1. your name
2. where you call "home"
3. why you come here (if it's cause we went to high school together, and you followed the link on my Facebook and you hated me then and still do now.... that's ok too you can still win!)
and a fun question... 
4. if you bought a new pair of jeans and found $150 in the pocket what would you do with it?
5. your email (when some of you comment, I get a 'no-reply' email address and it makes me sad, plus if you win I want to make sure I can contact you! BTW- Katieballa posted an awesome lil tutorial on how to solve this!)
*6. If you're a newby here, it's not too late - you can become a follower now and still enter!

Don't worry, I'll show you what you can win tomorrow, I promise it will be awesome though! Happy 99 loves,

UPDATE: Giveaway is now closed! Thanks all for playing along!

Hi! My name is Kristen and I am from Minneapolis. I started following a while ago and jumped over from Jimmy Choos and a Baby too's Top 2 Tuesday!

Ooo..If i found $150 in my pocket...I am a "practical nerd" so I would probably save it, at least until I found something I REALLY wanted to spend it on!

I'm Rachael from Indianapolis. I think I started following you because of the IN Modern Quilt Guild. Of course, I'd spend $150 on fabric-- or finally break down and buy a bolt of Warm and White.
Thanks for being so generous!

Hi, Melissa from Chicago here. I don't know how I found you. Jimmy Choos and a Baby Too link? A comment on my blog? No idea!

If I found $150 in the pocket of new jeans, I'd probably buy something for the home or a spa service - provided the money was truly a good find and had no way of getting back to the original owner. ;)

What's New with Mrs.T said...

How fun!! Mrs.T. I live in CT. I can't remember how I found your blog but I'm glad I did! I would buy a pair of shoes or a piece of clothing that I jaw been wanting. Pretty much would spend it on the spot lol. My email is shoelover04@gmail.com ;0)

Hi! I'm Leigh from Madison, WI. I found your blog when you commented on my blog post about the Pillowcase Challenge. :) (I dropped off my pillowcases yesterday and managed to walk out of the shop empty handed! Go me!) If there was no way to get the money to its rightful owner, I'd buy FABRIC, of course!!!

Hi, I'm Ellen from Ontario Canada. I found you thru Sew Mama Sew. I'd go antique shopping if I found any money, any time. Your blog looks great. I'll be back to check it out more. I hope my email is attached, I tried the tutorial but no check mark box on my profile.

Mateya said...

Hi there!

My name is Mateya...I'm from South Dakota. I don't know how I found your blog. If I found $150 I would probably just deposit it into my checking account and be glad that I was $150 richer (yeah I'm boring). My email should work...if not it's mkuhlman32@hotmail.com

Please pick me! :) I love winning things!

Jamie said...

Hi! I'm Jamie from PA and somehow I stumbled across your blog via someone else's nifty, crafty blog. I would love to spend $150 at my local quilt shop, but it would probably go to the YMCA for my boys' activities. I love that you want to get to know your bloggy followers better. It's a very cool giveaway idea. I'll have to do something like this when I get some followers. Very fun!

Emily said...

Hey! I'm Emily, and I live in Missouri. I come here because your blog is way cute, and you're about my age so I can relate to you! I am wanting to buy a DSLR camera, so an extra $150 would go in the fund for that!!

Val Miller said...

Hello, I'm Val, and I live in a small town north of Toronto, Canada. I came here from sew mama sew, and I just have to say how much fun this whole blogging thing is. It's pretty new to me, and I have learned so much. If I found $150, I would probably buy more fabric, since the obsession I have runs real deep. My email is vmiller1091@rogers.com.

Hope you have a great day!!

I'm laura hailing for the most incredible state in the entire galaxy! TEXAS BABY! (dallas/fort worth to be exact) I think I found your blogging stalking probably! so i guess I'm a stalker....i'm ok with that!!!
if i found $150 in new jeans i'd be scared there was a tracker in it to see if i did the right thing and turn it back in....then i'd wait a few days....and take the family out to dinner at Magginano's. We love taking the kids out ...esp to this place but taking 4 kids and 2 adults is pricey...so we don't. our kids love having the treat of a dinner out...and not McD's! i know lame answer...but i'm pregnant and hungry and it came to mine first!
