Pay It Forward

So there's a contest going on. I know...How exciting!! Evidently Swistle started it all and you can go to her site and comment on her post and lots of others to be in the running for the Pay it Forward prize. Even if you don't have a blog, enter! You never know what you can win!

Now on to the real reason for this post. I told Andrea Unplugged that I would Pay It Forward too. She is giving stuff away too so go over to her site. So the Contest started today, June 30th and ends July 4th at midnight. All you have to do is comment on this post and you will be in the running for a one of a kind prize!! It's SO one of a kind that I don't even know what it is yet! I was thinking something Texas themed (since that's where I live now) but I am going on vacation next week and decided to pick you up something at the beach. And I won't buy anything until I know who the winner is...so if it turns out that you are a GUY, I won't get you a whole bunch of chickie crap!!
There is only rule...being that the contest is called the Pay it Forward Contest...You will have to pay it forward yourself. If you have a blog, you will start your Pay It Forward contest post with a pic of the loot you won and the rules for your Pay it Forward contest.

If you don't have a blog and you won the big prize, pay it forward in your life. Make cookies for a shut-in neighbor, babysit an hour or 2 for a needy mom, send a gift to a family member...just because, ...you get the idea!! Go out of your way to do something kind for someone else.

It can't hurt to enter here too! If I win maybe you can cook something cool for dinner for me. Oh wait, we already do that together. Anyhow...I'm glad you're on board with the contest!

Yea, fun beach stuff -- since I live in the mid-west that would be exciting (no beach in sight). Have a fun vacation!

Hi! Beach vacations are the BEST. Assuming there's a good place to rinse the sand out of your crotch. :)

I would love to enter if Canadians may. I'm not a blogger, but I can definitely pay things forward in my life (& I like your suggestions).

I hope you have a great time at the beach!

Dr. Blondie said...

Kristi said...

Dog-mom....I like that! What kind of doggie?

Brooke said...

Well, to answer a few questions...I am going to Gulf Shores in Alabama. My parents have a condo there and we get to use it for free. Pretty Sweet huh!!

Maggie is a Blue Heeler/German Sherpard/at least 5 other dogs mixed breed. We have been trying to figure out what she is ever since we got her with no answer.

And Wii giveaways? Someone is seriously making bank!! And it's not me!!I will get you something cool but you can be assured that it won't be over 300 bucks!!!
