Six Things I’ve Won Recently

Sweepstakes Winning Collage with Numbers

Man, it’s been a long time since I’ve blogged. I blame this on my favorite hobby: sweepstaking. Okay, that’s not true (work, volunteering and other commitments are the true reasons behind my slack blogging), but my sweepstakes experiment continues to take up a few minutes of each week. I still haven’t won a car, cruise or cash, but here are some the prizes I have won recently.

1. Grey Poupon Gravy Yacht
Grey Poupon describes the gravy yacht as “perfect for every occasion when ordinary gravy boats just won’t do.” Watch this video to take in the brilliance.

2. Dateline NBC Snuggie
I live in a vibrant and fun part of the city with lots of trendy clubs and restaurants. This gives some the impression that I’m partying it up on the weekends, but most Fridays you can find me at home doing laundry and watching Dateline. This blanket with sleeves is my new favorite accessory.

3. popchips Autographed by Katy Perry
I have a bit of a popchips obsession, so I was really excited to win a month’s supply (24 bags) of katy’s kettle corn popchips, including a bag signed by Ms. Perry herself.

4. $25 Target Gift Card
Target took ordinary tweets and used them in their Everyday Collection Tweet-to-Runway Fashion Show. They chose one of my tweets and sent me a $25 gift card. Somehow I don’t believe that the model reading my tweet struggles with eating an entire frozen pizza in one sitting.

5. Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Hoodie
I wear this when I’m feeling angelic. 

6. Litter Genie Disposal System
I don’t have a cat and I’m highly allergic to them, so this prize went to a friend.

The journey for bigger prizes continues, but these random surprises in my mailbox still brighten my day. Have you won anything lately?

Thanks, Mandi! Isn’t Target the best?! I was boring and used mine to buy groceries.

Back again from Melissa Say What? — I started leaving comments as myself instead of my blog. Congrats on your recent wins! I’m still doin’ the damn thing, too! I have nothing major to report here. I recommend ContestChest for keeping track of the best sweeps & giveaways and then I have a linky on my blog every Saturday, too, but it’s just a small gathering of fellow bloggers. There are still tons of Pop-Chips giveaways in the blogosphere. Good luck!! Get back to posting!

Okay, one more thing. I just checked out the Target video with your tweet. Really? You only got $25 for that. You deserve soooo much more!
