Shannon, she of Rocks In My Dryer fame, is hosting another amazing carnival of giveaways! I had so much fun entering these back in the fall — seriously, folks, there were well over 400 blogs participating! All giving something away for free! Amazing! — that I told Gruff I was going to participate in the next one. And lo and behold, the time has come. It’s the Bloggy Carnival and I’m giving away right along with hundreds of other bloggers! Woo-hoo! (Ed. note: the carnival went live at 8 a.m. It is now 9:24 and I’m #178 on the list. This is going to be BIG, people.)
I thought and thought about what to give away. I noticed a lot of gift cards at the last one, and I for one was ALL ABOUT entering those giveaways, let me tell you. Plus, a gift card is easy-peasy to mail to whoever wins. Plusalso, it is easy to buy and have ready for the carnival (unlike my first idea, to handcraft some little piece of artsy crafty fabric-y goodness, which would invariable be not quite finished by the time the carnival rolled around). So then the question was, what kind of gift card should it be?
No sense in keeping you in suspense – there’s no big relevatory reason I chose this particular one. We were having a nice breakfast at Cracker Barrel a few days after Christmas when I decided to share the love: I’m giving away a $10 gift card to Cracker Barrel.
You can fill up with hot coffee and a big heaping plate of Momma’s French Toast Breakfast (I’m just saying. That’s what I get every.single.time. But you are free to choose other plates of deliciousness, as you please.) or, if you’re not the eating type (not that I’ve ever met one. But I hear those types of people do exist.) then you can browse in their little front-half-of-the-restaurant Old Country Store and pick up something to complete your collection, like this:
(Again. Maybe that’s just me.) You can check here to see where the nearest Cracker Barrel is – luckily for me, I’ve never lived more than a few minutes away from one. Nothing beats a CB breakfast, especially on a lazy Saturday morning.
Now here are the rules: you must leave a comment on this post between now and February 1st. You have to use a valid email address, since that’s how I’ll get in touch with the winner. You don’t have to be a blogger, but if you ARE a blogger, I hope you’ll include your URL so I can come by and visit. Last but not least, as much as I love global blog readers, you must have a US or Canadian mailing address to participate. I’ll close comments on Friday and will draw a winner using one of those spiffy random number generator things. (I have no idea how they work, but apparently I don’t have to! It’s like electricity! Just flip the switch and voila – TV on! TV off! But that’s neither here nor there.)
Have fun – and remember to visit the Carnival for the whole list of bloggers who are giving something away this week!
