If at first you don't succeed, try, try again... right? So... I tried, but seem to have failed miserably (OK, well, maybe not miserably... but it was pretty ugly) -- Thank you to those of you who were so supportive of Wondering Wednesday (and thank you to Maegan at Maegan for doing a post!) -- It could have been fun, but after a trial run, me see no success (did that rhyme?)

Reason #1:
If you tag someone on Wednesday, they will feel obligated to reply on Wednesday (I am of the opinion that obligation is the last feeling one should have on blogger)
Reason #2:
If you tag someone... it should be like a gift/an award/a praise of some sort- NOT WORK!
Reason #3:
Someone may NOT want to share with the blogging world what you've "wondered" about them!!

3 reasons and I'm out -- (if you still didn't catch it, Wondering Wednesday is dead :) --

To make up for my ridiculousness (um... yeah -- today, that's a word) --


(let there be confetti, balloons and loud annoying noises!

and seriously... the rhyming just comes naturally :) --

Sorry... I'm getting to it, clearly I find myself way too amusing :) -- The rules of the contest are easy --


  1. POST the above card on your blog (whether in a post or on your sidebar) and MENTION I'm doing a giveaway

  2. LINK the card back to these rules and LEAVE A COMMENT on this post (the only way I'll know you posted and will be entered in the giveaway)

  3. MENTION WHAT BLOG YOU FOUND OUT ABOUT THIS GIVEAWAY (they'll win a little something, too!)

Of all those who POST and LEAVE A COMMENT (sorry, but if you post and I don't know it, I can't count you in the drawing!) I will use and pick the winner -- I will announce the winner of my fun, free and fabulous giveaway on MONDAY, DECEMBER 1st! (yes... I thought the date was fitting, too :)

Oh... and as for what the giveaway is? Well... here are a couple hints -- It's perfect to use for your Holiday hosting, it's comforting, it's cute and best of all... it's FREE!!!!
