The time has come!



Sound the trumpets!

Today is the first anniversary of the day My SuperTarget opened! And to celebrate, you guys recently voted on whether you'd rather have a chance to win one $100 gift card, two $50 gift cards or five $20 gift cards. The single $100 gift card squeaked out a win! (Side note: only 90 people voted. Whenever I post a poll, I'm always amused by the low number of people who answer, because several hundred people come by most every day, but some people apparently don't care to have their opinion counted. I LOVE TO HAVE MY OPINION COUNTED ABOUT EVERYTHING FROM PAINT COLORS TO WHICH KIND OF NUT TASTES BEST.)

So anyway, today is your opportunity to Comment to win! You do NOT have to be a Follower of my blog to win. However, you can receive additional entries if you are/become a Follower on either the blog or Twitter. So that's up to three chances to win.

1. To enter, leave a Comment with some question you want me to answer or blog post topic I haven't yet bored you with (I know. "With which I haven't yet bored you.") I AM ALWAYS LOOKING FOR THINGS TO BLOG ABOUT.

2. If you already are or today become a Follower of my blog, Comment again and tell me that. That will serve as your second entry.

3. And finally, if you already do or today start Following me on Twitter, Comment again and tell me that. That will serve as your third entry.

But in short, everyone has at least one chance to win as long as they leave one Comment (preferably with a question or a blog topic included, because quite frankly after more than 900 posts, I am completely out of thoughts).

GOOD LUCK! The winner will be announced tomorrow.

Hi Katherine, what a generous give away!

Hm. For a question/blog topic - maybe scrap booking tips. I am more of a print the pictures album girl myself, but I would love to hear how you make such awesome scrap book tips.

I haven't been a follower very long, (maybe 3-4 months)so I'm not sure if you have already posted this, but I think it'd be a cute idea to create a post of how you ''survive'' a typical day with 3 BOYS 6 and under.

I'd definitely be interested :)

Shelby Baker said...

I'm a follower, so here's my second entry.

Since this is a Target celebration. I say you post about your adventures at Super Target. I only have regular ones around here and would love to see what Super Target is all about!

Shelby Baker said...

Lauren's College Life said...

Love it! Love Target too!

1. Can you blog more about the bad Charter experiences you have had? HAHA kidding. Maybe about how you possibly have enough hours in the day to do everything that you do?! I don't have kids and I can't even manage to blog once a week- ha! :)

Lauren's College Life said...

2. I follow the blog!

Hi Katherine,

I love your blog and your everyday slices of life. As for a question, let's stick with the Target theme. What are your favorite Target-brand products, i.e., Up, Archer Farms, Cherokee, etc.? Mine are the Archer Farms Roasted Red Pepper and Asparagas soup and the AF Buffalow Wing potato chips.

Meredith said...

I am a follower and read every day.

Sarah said...

Excited about the giveaway!

Can you give us a tour of your home? It looks like you are a great decorator and put a lot of time into it. I'd love to get some ideas!

jrogers said...

I love your blog. Some of my favorite posts are those about scrapbooking and the things that Jake says. I have a little one close tho his age and they just crack me up.

jrogers said...

Brandi said...

Kat, you know I love your thoughts and have always wondered if you wished you had a Daughter. As a Mother of two girls, I have no idea what life with a boy would be like. How does it feel to be out numbered?

Would love to hear more of your fashion picks. I ran off and got the Chico sweater the say you posted it! LOVE it! Thanks.

sdg said...

Hi Katherine!

I have been reading your blog for a while now - all the way from sunny Scotland!

I enjoy your food based blogs but perhaps only because I;m living in Scotland and don't have too much access to Chick-fil-A etc...
thanks!xx

steigler7071 said...

I like the idea of giving us a tour of your home...within reason. I also like the idea of what your favorite brands are at Target. I have noticed you use store brands of pop tarts, cleaners, etc. I like that you are posting real and don't feel like you have to hide behind brand names.

steigler7071 said...

I am a follower as well and read every post!

steigler7071 said...

I just started following you on Twitter but unfortunately don't get on there much but here's chance #3 for me! Thank you for such an awesome give away.

Teazy said...

Kat, its Walt Teazy, and I have a wonderful idea for you: Things You Hate at ________. Let's find a store that you would never shop in and highlight the items you think are most ridiculous. Obviously, the flip side to "Things I Love at Pottery Barn"...

And like Amy Grant, I follow you on twitter...

Best giveaway ever ;) ha!

My question is: how do you do discipline in your family, especially when the boys were younger? My Gabe just turned 2, isn't a great talker, but is wild.... running, jumping, etc. He doesn't seem to respond to most common discipline methods (although, I hope as he grows he will!) and I'd love to hear what works for your family.

Laura and family said...

Already a follower :)

Laura and family said...

annnnd already a twitter follower.

Thanks for making me feel like a stalker! Darn blogging!

Ole Miss Mom said...

I began following your blog! Even though it's already in my reader! I don't have a post suggestion...I'm awful at ideas! But keep 'em coming!

Patrice said...

I follow you on Twitter (and only once in a while regret it... kidding, of course.)

Patrice said...

I also follow your blog, although actually only signed up as a "follower" once you told about the gift card. That's right, I whore myself out for Target. I'm okay with it.

Patrice said...

AND, I don't have a suggestion for what you should blog about seeing as how you are way better at coming up with ideas than I am, but I want my third chance, DANG IT. I love you though.

Lisa said...

ANy exciting birth stories to share? I would LOVE to win this Target gift card!!!

Megan Lauriana said...

Katherine,

I'd love to see a "house tour" - maybe when it is picked up vs. when the boys go crazy. :)

Good luck everyone!

AJ said...

You make an awesome boy mama but have you ever hoped for or plan to try again for a girl?

AJ said...

I've been a blog follower for over a year, really need to comment more.

AJ said...

And I follow on Twitter also!

brightleigh said...

Hey Katherine...hmmm blog topics, you know this is a struggle for me because I have issues with coming up with them--I think you do a great job! How about Do you coupon and what strategies do you use to coupon? I also want to know if you have any pets. I enjoy your slices of life and I love to read about your boys growing up! Thanks for the giveaway....would be great to win with a new little one on the way!

brightleigh said...

I follow you too!

Hi katherine

i have been a regular reader of your blog for a couple of months and love it..

for a Q ..since you have 3 boys have you missed having a girl especially in some situations ... i have 2 girls ( i wished for 2 girls only even before they were born) but sometimes when i see some cute boys in the soccer field i often wonder what it would have been like if i had a boy... have you thought like that.. if u feel its so personal jus ignore but count this as entry to the gift card drawing..

Laxmi Prabha said...

Joan (Nana) said...

Started following your blog last year when Patrice said we could see pictures on your blog of the family vacation. Question..with alot of the boys clothes personlized with their names, do you hand down these shirts to the others?

trishandwade said...

Read your blog everyday, and you always crack me up. I love your "sarcastic wit" amd your boys are all adorable. Any plans to add to the crowd anytime soon??

trishandwade said...

I'm a follower, also.

Amy said...

I love your blog...your posts about Things you Love are some of my favorites (okay, maybe it's your posts about how kooky you are b/c I can totally relate). One thing that *I* really loved was your post about your entryway/mudroom...with the bench and coathooks, etc, from Pottery Barn...so my question is, what are your favorite organization tips? I'm so tired of clutter :)

Amy said...

I follow your blog...I think I came on board right around this time last year.

megan said...

megan said...

I think you should blog more about things that make you laugh. You always seem to find some crazy website that cracks me up. :)

Mama Bear said...

What is your favorite snack food?

Rachel said...

Your posts always make me laugh. I'd love to hear about your husband...how you met, wedding pictures, the early years.

Rachel said...

I'M A FOLLOWER! (maybe I shouldn't admit that out loud.)

Stefanie said...

I've been a follower for a while-put me down for 1 entry!

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

Love your blog. It often makes me laugh out loud... Your thoughts/ actions/likes/dislikes often remind me of myself.

Ideas... Loved the posts on stuff from the past like hairdos and banana clips, more of that would be great!

How about a post on boy/ girl names if you had more kids?

Top ten lists of favorite things/ least fav things of yours or even for each child...

Top ten tv shows

Top ten foods

Can you tell I'm a list person too ?

Wade's World said...

Thanks for the giveaway!!

Here's my questions: Auburn or Alabama?

paige said...

You know I want you to blog about every. single. thing. in your life. Can you do that? I know you must have it documented somewhere. You must. Right? I love all of your posts and I think your blog is already very interesting and diverse (and I'm not just saying that because you are my friend and have the priviledge of knowing me in real life).

As the nearest target is approx. 4000 miles from me if by some freak of chance I win, will you send it to my mom in the States? Her birthday is this week and it would take her about four seconds to spend $100 in Target. :)

jennhenders said...

Kat,

I just LOVE your slices of life posts so I would revel in more of those. Your boys are so intelligent (and cute!) and I love to hear of some things that come out of their mouths. And also, I think you and I are a lot alike regarding certain pet peeves, e.g. grammar mistakes. In fact, I'm probably making one right now! :)

cameronandtanya said...

Hi Katherine!
I've been following your blog for... I dont even know how long! (Since I don't live in B'ham anymore) I just officially started following last month when you mentioned the target post!

A blog post idea?! hmmmm... I enjoyed your Disney posts on how to save money on vacation - which we used some of your ideas when we went recently. What about ways that you save money as a family on everyday life!

I do not do twitter - so I can't follow you there :(

Love reading your blog :) Thanks! Hope you all are well!

Shanna said...

Hello Katherine. Your blog is so cute and funny. I think a good topic would be how to keep with everything for scrapbooking. I have a 10 month old little girl, and I need lessons on how to keep straight.

Shanna

Shanna said...

I am also a follower. I have been for about a year and half now. I follow Jonah's website, and that is how found you.

shanemotb said...

Hello! This is so much fun! I remember how excited you were last year, and I remember the same excitement when the first Target came to Connecticut when we lived there. We drove 45 mins each way just to go. I would love to see more of your house. You have great taste, and I would love to see how that manifests itself in the other rooms of your house that we haven't seen. Nosey, huh!

Thanks for the fun giveaway!

Erin S said...

Well, you sure do make cute boys. How about some photography tips featuring photos of sweetly dimpled little men?

And you know I'm always up for a game of "What Grammar Atrocity Did You Come Across Today?"

Otherwise, just keep doing what you're doing. You rock.

RLR said...

Wow - $100! Hmmm... Blog topics... I'm in a bit of a dry spell myself (there are only so many lunches I can blog about, right?). I like the 'slices of life' posts, but I think Teazy's "Things you hate at ___" is a really fun(ny) suggestion. It gets my vote!

Nikki said...

hmmm...blog topics. Favorite thing about being a mommy to 3 boys. What do you think you have enjoyed about having a girl in the mix. I have 2 boys and we are done, so I always enjoy blogs that are written by mom's who have just boys.
