THE BIG DAY HAS ARRIVED!

I have never typed a post title in all caps before. But there's a first time for everything, I suppose.

SO THIS IS IT! Today is the day that you can leave a Comment in the hopes of winning a $100 Target gift card ... a celebration of the fact that the one just a mile from my house is opening this weekend!

Here are the rules:

1. One comment per person, please.
2. Huh. I guess that was all the rules.

Well, I'd love for you to join as a Follower, but it's not a prerequisite for winning the gift card, nor is it to woo advertisers. (I have no sponsors, and I'm paying for the gift card out of my own pocket. Also, I can't STAND it when someone makes you become a Follower in order to win a used birthday candle or something on their blog.) It would just be nice for me to be able to click over there and meet some new people a few times a week. But, no pressure.

The contest will end at midnight Central time tonight, and I will announce the winner tomorrow. GOOD LUCK!

How awesome that I'm first? Yeah, good luck to me! Did you have fun last night? we want to hear all about it.

AJ said...

LoL I actually became a follower yesterday when I decided to be more serious about my blog. Ya know I wish I had a Target close by, but if I were to win it would so make the 1.5 hour drive worth it.

I would love to win the gift card! I've been thinking of updating my fall wardrobe with some of their new stuff. I love the shawl collar sweatshirt that were in the ad this past Sunday--so cozy!

So, how were the perfectly organized aisles? I am so jealous!!Hope you had a great time!!

Melissa said...

I love your blog and all the cute stories about your boys and I am always glad to see a kindred soul when you do your Pottery Barn posts! Hope you had great fun at Target last night - I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have one within a mile of my house, instead of having to drive an hour to the nearest one.

Hi! I'm just a lurker who has no blog, but found yours by following baby Jonah's. If by some chance I win, please send the gift card to Patrice for Jonah. Thanks! :)

Sabrina said...

Love your blog, I have been a follower for awhile. Love the look you give me into my future with a 13 month old little boy of my own. Hope I win! Sabrina

APA and NBK's Mom said...

I guess I am a follower of your blog because I read it everyday but I am not an official follower. Does that make me a stalker? :) I love your blog and you are inspiring me to get on the weightloss wagon ... if only I could stay there.

Your boys are precious and your little Jake reminds me of my guy who is about 6 months older than him. He too has older siblings and he sooo wants to be big.

Blessings to you and your family.

Erin S said...

An ALL CAPS day, indeed. So glad your wish has finally come true!

la said...

can you believe there is a super target in the burbs here, but i've NEVER BEEN. because why drive 25 minutes when there's a regular target within 10? i anticipate your post about last night will have me high-tailing it out there asap though.

JenJenkins said...

Hi there!
My Super Target opened about a year ago, and it's about a mile from my house. I have dropped some serious cash there since our son was born 7 months ago, and would love to win a gift card!

I enjoy reading your blog...I found you thru Jonah's blog. Have a great week!!

pinksarahh said...

I was already a follower...who wouldn't be! Even if it is for a used Birthday Candle!

Kylie0307 said...

Target is the best... I have been reading your blog for a while now and just wanted you to know that you a true inspiration ;) Keep up the good work..

Josh, Mandy, Luke, & Noah said...

I actually just started reading your blog this week and really enjoy it. I had been watching that (your) Target be built until we moved to Atlanta in June, and luckily I have a Super Target about 3 miles from me here. We do all our shopping at Target and I love that if you put it on your Target card you can quickly rack up those 10% off coupons! Happy shopping to you!

Pick me!!! Pick me!!!

RLR said...

I can't wait to hear about THE EVENT. And the neat aisles, and the shiny floors, and the smoothly-rolling carts!!! I wish we had a Super Target around here!

Beth@The Stories of A to Z said...

I LOVE target! Pick me Mr. Random Number Selctor Thingy!

The Nikkel's said...

I'm a follower, but not a follower...I found your blog through Jonah's blog. I enjoy reading about you and your children. I too, LOVE target and shop there weekly! A gift card would come in handy! :)

Staci T. said...

I have been lurking and reading your blog, which I found from Jonah's...I love when you go through magazines and show us your favorite things...oh and of course it would be completely amazing to win the target gift card:)

I found your blog through Jonah's and have read it every single day since (several months now) and love it. I have a 9 month old baby girl and have been following your weight loss with hopes of being motivated to join you. LOVE Target. Thanks for doing this!

Patrice said...

I'm so behind... dang dressing change. You know I could spend me some $100 at Target. But I think THIS $100 I would reserve for just me. No diaper or wipe buying allowed. :) No worries though. You know I can spend me some money at Target gift card or no. I never let a little thing such as that stand in my way. :) Looking forward to seeing you at Thanksgiving. It's starting to feel close now that it's getting cooler. Love ya!

Miss Mustard Seed said...

Oh my goodness! A $100 gift card! I hope I win!

Laura said...

I would love to win this card! I'm happy to say I live close to a Target, although it's not a Super Target. (Apparently, here in my new state of Arkansas - home of that OTHER store - Targets of any variety are quite rare!)

Lisa said...

Pick me! Pick me! This stay at home mama could really use that card!

I have enjoyed following your blog which I linked to through "The Williams Family" blog. I have enjoyed your enthusiasm about your Target opening because we have a new Target opening on the 11th...that's right, just a few days away. I wonder what it will feel like to be the first person in line at a brand new Target? I enjoy your weight loss issues, as well. If I were to win, I'd spend the giftcard at MY new Target :)

Jessie said...

First time commenter, but been reading for awhile. I don't have a blog of my own to follow you, but I would if I could! I found you through sweet baby Jonah. Hope I win! My baby boy needs winter clothes so desperately!

HandyFamily said...

I love that you used all caps! That means you are so excited! I enjoy reading your blog and I would love to do some Christmas shopping at Target!

Evidence of an Artistic Life said...

Hope you LOVE your new Super Target!!! I have a regular Target about a mile away, and two Supers within 5 miles. Guess where I shop!!! I don't understand the following thing-but I do subscribe to your blog via Google Reader!!!

Aaron & Laura said...

All for Target, baby!! I'm there every other day, at least, and would love that gift card. Woohoo!!!

Mandi Shandi said...

What an incredible contest! I came over to introduce myself and thank you for commenting on my chairs I overhauled. I appreciate your comment and how lucky am I that I get to enter this great contest?? Thanks! Oh, and happy anniversary!

melanie said...

I am throwing my name in the hat as a Williams family player! If I win I hereby bequeath my winning card to niece in law, Au-Pice, for her own PERSONAL use!

Joan (Nana) said...

Enjoy your blog. Been some time ago since I won anything. With 8 Grandkids a Traget gift card would make for one happy shopper.

cameronandtanya said...

Thank you for commenting on my blog (4boybarians4us). And what a suprise to see your having such a generous no-strings-attached giveway.

You know I'm a sucker for a give-away! :-)

Laura a.k.a. Lolly said...

Love, love, love Target and would love, love, love to have a gift card to spend there.

And, oh yeah, I'll become a follower, too, because I already check it every day anyway.

Great blog!

Brandi Brownell said...

I almost forgot to send my comment, and then you and the boys popped into my mind. You know it's important if I get out of bed to get on the computer. Hope to see you on Saturday!
