Holy Cow - I Won?

In this life time I can be called a lot of things:

A mother
A wife
A woman
A thinker
A drinker
A lover
A fighter

Or like my hubs called me this morning? A brat.

One thing you really couldn't call me is a winner. I rarely win anything. So when I was informed last night that I would soon be the proud winner of a sock zombie, I was floored and super happy. And no, I didn't find one with big boobs.

Thanks J.

More than that though, I was inspired. Inspired to do my own giveaway.

Yeah, you heard me. I'm giving shit away. But I don't do anything for free, so there are rules people. Big FAT RULES.

First, what am I giving away? Well, what else? A handmade apron made by none other than me, Betsey Booms. If you aren't familiar with my work, where the hell have you been? But more importantly, go over to my labels section and click on Aprons. You'll be able to see a few of my creations.

So let's establish some rules here. First you have to leave a comment on this post, you can leave up to 3 comments a day, right here. Next? Yeah, I'm doing it, you have to mention somewhere on your blog that this contest is going on (unless you don't have a blog). I know, it's a lot of work, but I haven't even made this apron yet, people. THAT? Makes it ultra special and JUST FOR THE WINNER!

How will I establish a winner? Well, the lovely and talented, Mr. Jason Booms will be picking the number. I'm not sure yet how he will do it. Perhaps I'll have him pick random or perhaps at the end of next weekend I'll count the number of beer cans we emptied and that will be it. One way or another, he will be responsible for choosing.

So that's it. You have until the end of next weekend (Sunday, September 28th). The winner will be announced the next day. Oh and I know it's jerky, but the winner has to be within the U.S., I'm not rich or good at international shipping.

Good luck and Godspeed.

I REALLY WANT AN APRON!!!!!!!!! And think of me, because like you, I never win anything.

Baby N's Mom said...

Maybe I should and maybe I shouldn't, but I really like the aprons. Now to post on my blog.

J said...

I am commenting, but I don't think it would be fair for me to enter this....

But I still love your aprons!

Dirty Pirate Hooker said...

I love your aprons. :)

But I'll have to update my blog later because I can't really blog from work. (In fact, I normally can't even comment from work. We'll see if this works...)

rubyredruca said...

Is it fair to enter, even when I already have 2?

Dirty Pirate Hooker said...

I have the song, 'my best friend's girlfriend' stuck in my fucking head.

Dirty Pirate Hooker said...

The Whore Whisperer, over and out.

KaritaG said...

I'm going to enter, even though I already have an apron, and maybe if I win I will do my own contest of some sort...I want to see pics of the sock zombie when you get it!

ghost of keywork said...

Fuck it, I like to win stuff. I'll be the only male contestant. It might even cause me to start cooking. I doubt it, but whatever.

care said...

care said...

care said...

(say it out loud and you'll get it)

Dirty Pirate Hooker said...

I must be a fucking retard cause I don't get it care.

care said...

brown chicken, brown cow

sounds an awful lot like "bow-chicka-wow-wow."

get it, sexiest.

dumb punny joke but those are my favorite. :)

Lisa..... said...

Okay I added it to my blog. And my pic even has me in an apron, but not one as cool as yours.

Sheri said...

Oooh, an apron! I am all over this.

Lara said...

There I added it to my blog too. :)

Lara said...

Hey, it's a new day, so I can leave a new comment, right?

Sister Goldenhair said...

Aprons! I luuuuuurve aprons! They make me want to carry around feather dusters and sing, "I think Seymour's the greatest", ala Little Shop of Horrors.

Dirty Pirate Hooker said...

Happy Talk Like a Fucking Pirate Day, Tits McGee!

Dirty Pirate Hooker said...

I like how spanish to english translations are not anywhere near what you said.

Just thought I would throw that out there.

chichimommy said...

Free Apron; Hell Ya! I've got my fingers crossed you pick the cupcake fabric!!!

Blue Tissue Box said...

I <3 you. I <3 your aprons. I <3 Christmas too, which is when an apron in my house would get the most use! Christmas Cookie time!!! (almost!)

And, I just got home from B-I-N-G-O, and didn't win a damn thing. However, my future mother-in-law did win. She won last time we went too. How's that for a kick in the pants. I neeeed this apron. :P

Btw, did I tell you that I <3 you?

Party of Five said...

I never win anything, but chances are I'll be the proud owner of the cutest apron on the planet!

Lisa..... said...

APRON PLEASE!!!!!

Dirty Pirate Hooker said...

La la la la la la, la la la la...

That was the tune of the smurfs. Didn't it totally come across????

ajillofalltrades said...

I would love to have an apron since I DO love to cook!!!

(which should also be a stipulation of the commenters)

ANNND....I'm a certified ass licker, see:
Wendy Chastain, CaL

J said...

I don't lick asses. But, if you asked me to I might lick yours.

Kat said...

I'm doing it. I'm putting it on my blog. Right now.

Allie Bear said...

Okay, I feel like a douche, I have been MIA lately so I'm getting a late start here. Apparently, commenting 3 times a day on J's blog doesn't work well for winning things so I'm going to try to control myself here, and so I don't get called rude again. I would LOVE an apron though. :)

Dirty Pirate Hooker said...

Allie, do you need me to call the waaaaambulance for you?

Maggie, Dammit said...

Dude, I SO TOTALLY WANT ONE. I haven't said anything because I'm in the middle of putting together a few different give-aways on my blog and I thought mentioning this would fit in best with them, but not everything is falling into place. In fact, nothing is. BOO HISSSSSS. :(

Lisa..... said...

pick me, pick me, pick me!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lara said...

So are give-aways on blogs now the 'in' thing?

Cause I have nothing good to give away. I don't think giving away the hubby would attract many entries.

But I wouldn't mind winning someone else's giveaway...

Party of Five said...

I wanna win!

J said...

Hey who won? Me? YAY! LOL

Lara said...

I still have time to enter again, right?

I really really want one of your awesome aprons!!

Lara said...

Oops. I forgot to say please.

Please?

Lara said...

I'll only say thank you if I actually win one though.

Captain Steve said...

Dude! I was on vacation! I didn't know!. . . but I really really want one. Pretty please. I'm sending you juju vibes from my mind to pick me, pick meeeee.
