Did Someone Say Giveaway??


I started this blog like many of you, to allow family and friends into our daily adventures. Both the husband and my family live pretty far away so this seemed like a great idea. In the beginning, I seriously thought no one even read my posts. Our families swore they did but I had my doubts! I begged them to comment but to no avail. I eventually ventured out and came across Trainwreck. I instantly loved her sense of humor. Then from her blog I found countless other great people. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would meet so many wonderful people from so many places.

Then people started stoppin' by my lil ol blog. I got so excited when the comments started coming in. It's sad but y'all's comments highlight my day. Yea, I'm quite pathetic! I realize that.

And now I have 50 followers! I can not believe it. Besides the followers, I have countless others that show up to comment. Surely you all are mentally imbalanced in some way. That's the only theory I can come up with. Nothing else could explain it. Lord knows I am not that entertaining!

So to reward all you mentally imbalanced people, who I love and respect, I am having a giveaway. You should get something for puttin' up with me day in and day out. As a token of my appreciation, I will send the winner an assortment of Crazy M Photography notecards as well as some other odds and ends surprises.



To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment. The winner will be announced Tuesday. So you have till Monday night to enter.

How could we not sign up and read a blog called Gizzards & Calf Fries. It has the most appealing pull, "what could that be about?"

It certainly has not disappointed at all, very entertaining.

And I have met quite a few other bloggers through it.

Thanks!

Jen

Oh, I love trying to win things! (Notice I said trying, since that is all I do, I never actually win, LOL! ;)
Like you, I use to wonder if my family reads my blog, too! I know some do because they tell me or email me about my posts! And it seems like more of my family members are starting their own blogs now, too!

I love the name and the cows and dogs and the wedgie free underpants (where did the husband buy those!?). Calf fries, are those like the greasy chicken fries at mcdonalds? It reminds me of when I used to have cows. I just threw out the last tongue that was in my freezer.

Mikey said...

We love ya! You are totally entertaining!!

How could I not put up with you day in and day out-you make me LAUGH, out loud. You were one of the first blogs I found and I'm so glad I did.

I am as pathetic as you! I don't get phone calls or drop-by visitors - I get blog comments and DON'T anyone dare mess with me while I'm bloggin!

So glad I clicked in!
