You can be a winner too!

Is it right to say that that I'm relieved the election is finally over with? No worries this post is not going to be political. Although I did take part in the Election GNO last night, which was wonderful as usual.

If you don't know what a GNO is, please go to Mommy Gossip - GNO and find out. Next week I hear the topic will be FOOD. Holiday FOOD. Who doesn't love food?

So with all the talk of a winner this morning I thought it would be appropriate to talk about my recent win. My very first GNO was last week with a discussion about Twilight. My GNO/Twilight post ended up being one of those featured for Topic Talk.

And I won not one, but TWO Twilight-related books from Ms. Lulaville herself. See...

I got them on Friday and I've already read the movie companion from front to back, while paying special attention to page 75 per the written instructions that came with my prize. Thanks Leigh Ann!

Now I have a couple of contests to share with you and maybe you can be a winner too.

Kat at Sunshine & Lemonade is hosting a Wicked related giveaway this week. But wait for it... She will be hosting 10 weekend giveaways in the upcoming weeks that I'm very excited about. Each one will feature some of her favorite things so I'm sure there will be some peanut M&M's floating around. Carrie even made her a special button...

Cute huh?!

Then there is Aleta who is having a bracelet giveaway this week. It's a gorgeous Christmas inspired bracelet that Aleta herself made out of Swarvorski Crystals and Seed Beads. It's a beautiful bracelet that you have to see.

I'm sure you're thinking that I'm being nice by sharing but in reality I got an extra entry in each contest by blogging about them. Plus, I heart these gals and I want you to love them too. So after you leave me a comment go visit each and every one. You won't be disappointed.


And I'm throwing in this one not because she's giving something away but because she's a bad ass that uses bad words.

Thanks for blogging about my site! Glad you like the bracelet. Love the Twilight books. I'm going to borrow some from a friend; she loves the series!

I love all the blog contests that are out there. And thanks for the shout out for mine. I just scheduled the post for Saturday's next give away.

How did I miss this? Oh, I know...the commode and I are close, personal friends as of I've missed out on lots.

the good thing is that the Movie Companion book is in the bathroom. And nothing's better than some Edward deliciousness while crapping your head off.

Yeah, I said that.

Forgive my crassness, please!

The Twilight GNO was my first, too... I missed last week's though.

But the next one looks just like my thing! YUM.
