It's October!!! Time to Celebrate!!! (with a CSN Giveaway)

and use a lot of exclamation points!!!  and talk about unique coffee tables!!!  




Here's a few more exclamation points, !!!!!!!, because my husband loves it so much when I overuse exclamation points. 
Isn't it ironic that I ended that sentence with a period?  


October is the big birthday month at our house.  4 of the 10 of us have birthdays in October.  Hey, it gets cold here in January and February.  
There are also a handful of cousins and friends, my Mother-in-law, and my Grandpa who share this month with us.  It's just one big party all month long.  


So October is going to be giveaway month again!  Yay!  


What is up with talking about coffee tables?  A great chance for YOU to go shopping for one.


First up for the big fat October celebration is a $35 gift card to CSN stores.  


Unless you've been living under a rock, you've seen the big buzz in the blogging world recently about CSN.  They have everything!  Who wouldn't want $35 use as they wish on any of their 200+ websites for shoes, decor stylish handbags, unique coffee tables, great cookwear or anything in between?  


I can't tell you how much I love online shopping, it makes my life so much easier.  I know many of you have been shopping with kids.  Now imagine shopping with 8 kids.  Exactly.  Add to that where I live, and the fact that to get anywhere other than Walmart requires a minimum 20 minute drive, and I love online shopping even more.  Not to mention it's usually cheaper to pay shipping than to pay for gas to get wherever I was going.  


So now it's your turn to indulge in a little online shopping.  Get a jump on that Christmas list, or buy something for yourself to celebrate my birthday.  


Here's how you win:


1-Go look around at CSN.  Come back and leave a comment telling me something that caught your eye.  
2-Let me know you are a follower
3-Share the love!  Spread the word by posting this giveaway in the big bad online world-facebook, twitter, or your own blog.  


That gives you 5 chances to enter, please just make sure you leave a separate comment for each entry.  


Giveaway closes next Thursday October 7th at 11:59pm Mountain Time.  Winner will be announced next Friday when the next giveaway goes up!  (you won't want to miss that!)


Ready, Set, go online shopping! 
And I'll go try to figure out what's up with the weird spacing on the blog today...

*In the quest for bloggy truth, I was not bribed, cajoled, compensated or rewarded in anyway to host this giveaway for CSN.  The only prize going out here is to you, my readers who are crazy enough to keep coming back.  And for indulging me in that, I thank you!*

I know, it's their furniture and decor that's awesome, but what I really need right now is a sports watch-using justin's old, partially broken one, just doesn't cut it these days :o)

Even though my birthday is this month too and I'd love to buy something for myself...my husband desperately needs new sneakers and being a size 16 we can't just run to the store and pick up a pair...I want to win new shoes for Jake!! :)

So I guess I'm clueless in the online shopping world because I've never even heard of CSN...how sad. I checked it out and it's awesome! I could really use a new toddler bed since Jenna's doesn't have side rails and she falls out of it every night and has to come sleep with us!

nicole0944 said...

BTW...my birthday is in Oct and my mom's was the day after mine and my husband's is on Halloween! I LOVE October!
