Wednesday's Writer's Workshop - C/O Mama's Losin' It! AND The Long Awaited Pay It Forward Contest!

I wish ..... I could be as generous as Ronda from Ronda's Rants with my Pay It Forward Contest, but I just can't!!!  But any WIN or FREE GIFT is good right??
I had just spent a gruelling 1/2 hour cleaning when I sat down at my computer to check and see if I had any more comment love in Blog Land.  I was seriously craving some chocolate, but didn't have the energy to comb my hair and go to the store.
When SUDDENLY.....
My daughter comes in with a package that had just arrived!!
Ooh lala!  Look what I got!!!

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! What an amazing gift! Ronda ordered through the Thanksgiving Coffee Co. and it includes two packages of coffee, two packages of hot chocolate, two boxes of chocolate and writing paper and envelope, and of course, the fantastic basket it came in! I say again, WOW! (And yes, I already dipped into the chocolate, and it is FANTASTIC!)

So, I am going ahead with my Pay It Forward contest! I had planned on doing it today anyway, but it is such an awesome bonus to be able to show you what I got!! How perfect is that??

Okay, I admit, I can't be as generous as Ronda. I have thought of a couple of gifts that I will send out and they will be announced later on.

What you need to do is leave some bloggy comment love, and while I don't have a fancy random generator thingy, I do have a bowl, paper, and a pen, and little four year old hands who will pick out numbers. If the numbers chosen are where you came in with your comment, well then, my friend, easy as that, you are the winner! There will be three in total.

Hopefully you will continue this by hosting this contest on your site. You will choose three winners, those winners will choose three winners and those winners will ... Do I really need to explain this to you incredibly intelligent people? I think not.

So again, thank you to Mama Kat for hosting this "I wish..." Wednesday.

Thank you SO MUCH to Ronda for her generosity on this day when I so needed it!

Thank you to my Blog Friends who will bring me full circle with this Pay It Forward Contest!

Good luck!!!

Winners will be posted tomorrow! Gifts will be announced Friday!

It IS better to give than receive! You are so worthy and I am so glad you enjoyed it! I love giving and this was so much fun for me!

Hi - I wandered over from Heather's Mindless Junque, and I just wanted to share this with you, because.. well, cause I'm a dork.

You mentioned that blogging is a sendentary thing. You know what I did? I got a yoga ball, and I bouce on it while I read blogs and do other compuer stuff.

Like I said... I'm a dork.

So I like the idea of the pay it forward theme. I hated the movie even though it was great(does that make sense to anyone) I also like that it should increase your comment traffic because EVERYONE wants something for free. Glad to have you linked to my site so I can see when you've posted something new. Good luck with your contest!

Here's to paying it forward!

Hmmm ... So with the pay it forward idea, do you have to go out and buy stuff, or could it be more of a "here are some things around my house that I'm not using, so you can have them" contest?

Wasn't Mamakat's idea a good one? I have found many new blogs to visit! The pay it forward idea is wonderful.

Wow. Chocolate. Pick me pick me pick me. Seriously, I now start my day every day with a cruise through my favourite blogs. Yours is my first stop.

Who doesn't love chocolate?? Mmm, that is the cure for everything around here!
