It's my blogoversary! My Perspective is officially one year old! [Actually it was yesterday but I was busy partying with the family (celebrating Keira's 12th birthday) and didn't take the time to post. :)]
So, I've been thinking about what to do to celebrate my 1 year blogoversary and I decided a giveaway would be fun. Don'tcha think?
Now normally when someone has a birthday or an anniversary, that person is supposed to get gifts, not give them away. But since I don't expect anyone to send me a card or a gift for my blogoversary - especially since you probably had no clue about it, unless you're like a blog stalker and you keep track of stuff like that, which in that case, there's no way you are getting my address anyway :) - I thought I'd have a giveaway.
And since I have readers from all over the US, a gift card seems most appropriate.
So I will be giving away a $15 gift card from either Target or Walmart. The winner gets to choose.
All you need to do is comment on this post by October 1 (this Friday! Can you believe it is almost October already?!). You don't need to have a blog or a Google account to leave a comment. You can leave an anonymous comment, but be sure to leave your name so I know who you are.
The winner will be chosen and announced on Saturday, October 2, hopefully in the morning before we leave for our annual jaunt on the local Farm Tour. I don't know how to do the random.org thingy, so I'll throw all your names into a hat and let Alex, my 4-year-old, draw one out. Fair enough?
Oh and just for fun, when you comment, let me know the strangest gift you have ever gotten. For your birthday, anniversary, Christmas, whatever.
I've gotten a few. All from one particular aunt. When I was a teenager, one year for Christmas she gave me leg warmers. Remember those? Yeah. But I don't think they were popular at the time.
Another year I got a pair of socks. One pair of socks. No money hidden inside or anything. Just socks.
And for our wedding, she gave us a plunger with rice in the handle and a little bride and groom on the end of the handle. The tag read "Take the Plunge". Again, no money or anything. Just a plunger. Not to seem ungrateful or anything, but I don't think my aunt likes me very much. :)
So go ahead and let me know your strangest gift(s). Can't wait to see who the winner is!
