Halloween Giveaway #1, In Which I Confess How Much I Suck

Okay, so I have a confession. Remember back when I had a contest for guessing Lucy's birthday? Well, due to a number of circumstances totally within my control (procrastination, losing her address, forgetting which gift card was for $15 and which was $25, having a newborn, etc.) I am only just freaking now sending the gift card to Lacey. I bumped up the amount and included some bonus goodies, but I still feel like such a jerk, especially since I feel like part of the reason I let it go on for as long as I did is that Lacey has become a friend and I knew/hoped she would understand. So basically, not only am I a crappy blogger, I am a crappy friend. NICE WORK!

Since this isn't the way I want to roll, I am going to have a giveaway for one of the target gift cards I bought and then couldn't remember the amount of (it's either $15 or $25). All you have to do is comment by end of day Wednesday, November 2 (make sure you include an email address if it's not on your blog or profile), and I will mail it out as soon as I get the randomly selected winner's address in an attempt to restore my bloggy karma.

Hahaha don't feel bad! I also have a newborn and it really didn't cross my mind! Well, besides when I ran out to the mailbox everyday in anticipation of it. But yeah, besides that I never even thought about it! :D

But now I'm super anxious to get it!

Oooh, me me me me!

I think you're well within the acceptable time frame on mailing winnings...

Give yourself a break! I think all newborn related things (like announcements, etc) should get the same grace period as a wedding gift. Which is a year. So you're way ahead of the curve!

Aw, so much goes by the way side when you have a new little person in the house! Don't feel bad!

Well, shopping with a gift card is TOTALLY NOT CHEATING on my no-spending-for-a-month challenge, so this would be awesome!

I don't think you're a crappy blogger! It's hard enough to find time to blog with 1, I can't imagine 2 - and I don't even do giveaways, nor are my blogs as funny as yours. So therefore, I'm a crappy blogger -- but I'm a crappy blogger who loves other people's giveaways. :)

Pick me! Pick me!! I am horrible at mailing my giveaways out as well. You have my email address.

Took me a month to mail out my PG contest prize - also because she was a blog friend. I don't think a giveaway winner would ever get mad if something took a while to get, ESP when the blogger has a newborn!

I totally understand how this happens. I am losing my mind these days, hardly blog unless I am nursing (so a few sentences each time and after a few weeks I finally have a blog), but I do find time read and enter contests. :)

Yay! I made it in time barely! Fun Giveaway!
