And the prize pack goes to...

The weekend winners started on November 1st. I have been giving away prize packs every weekend for the past 10 weeks. And now, we have finally come to the end of the extravaganza. I have felt like Santa Claus. It has been fun to think of new themes for each week. And I actually did not have the whole thing planned out from the beginning.

I have won one blog prize. I won a $25 gift card to Barnes and Noble from Angie over at Angie's spot. And I did my part to the help the economy by spending over $100 while I was there.

Now my husband on the other hand. He has that lucky touch. He enters online sweekpstakes. And we have won lots of things. Lots of it is junk. I have more chip clips, hats, and t-shirts than I know what to do with. He won a watch not too long ago. It's really ugly. And we are not sure who we can pawn it off on.

He's also won some really cool things. Like a stainless steel gas grill and a year of steaks from Omaha steaks. A huge Dell flat screen tv. A small flat screen tv. A $500 Visa gift card. Luggage. A hammock.

I keep waiting for his winning mojo to rub off on me. I have made him enter the more recent Pioneer Woman give aways. Like when she gave away a laptop last week.

And I suppose you want to know who won this week.

Who won the Wicked Soundtrack?

The Save the Ta-tas car magnet.

Pink spatuala thingies.

Gift cards to Barnes and Noble, Darden restaurants, and Office Depot.

Warm Delights.

LOST season 1 dvd

Scrapbook stuff

And Blokus.

All of these fantabulous prizes go to....

oh...sorry I didn't post this in the middle of the night.

I fell asleep early last night.

I am such a party animal.

Oh...yes...the winner.

It's Elena from Manwaring Moments. (Email me your address - and I'll get all your goodies out to you!) Congrats!!

I always end my posts with questions for you. But this post really does not suggest many questions to ask. Or at least none that I can think of. So...how about you ask me the questions again. I did a few posts back in October with your questions. And I am here to answer whatever it is that you are just dying to know. Or just curious about. Or whatever. So...what has you wondering?

Kat said...

Oh I just gotta ask.....

Can we use your lucky Hubby as big ole Buddha and rub his tummy for luck???

Sorry it was just the first thing that popped into my head.

I want to know how you managed all those fab givaways!! Did you get stuff donated? Provide it yourself? I'd love to do a giveaway, but I don't have the funds to come up with such great prize packs as you!! Any tips??

Kat said...

And of course I hit send without reading what I typed and forgot to congratulate Elena BEFORE I asked my silly question.

LadyStyx said...

Congrats Elena!!

Trish said...

Congrats!!

Tiffany said...

So where does your hubby find the sweepstakes to enter? Certain websites or blogs? Or does he merely google giveaways and enter those he runs across?

I wish my husband were so lucky. ugh.

Congrats to the winner! And Kat, did you donate all of the items for your giveaways? Because I need to do some kind of contest to increase my traffic (and blogging would help as well) but don't have the funds to do so.

Tam said...

Congrats to the Winner! OK my question for you...What is your Favorite Getaway place in Georgia? Like if you and the HUBS got to have a romantic weekend together in Georgia...where would it be?

mommytoalot said...

Congrats on the sweet win!

Shannon said...

Congrats to Elena!

I have been waiting all day to hear who won... hoping it was me. Sigh.

Kori said...

I'm with Shannon. I been checking all day thinking this would be mine.

Many Congratulations to Elena. I just adore her.

Now for my questions...

Are you going to be available 24/7 while I am at Disney?

What was you favorite gift that you received on Christmas?

Did Michael love his bags?

And most important do you love me as much as I love you? hehehe

Cassie said...

Congrats Elena!!! That is one fabuloso prize package!!

I've enjoyed your blog and your giveaway fun very much! I can't think of a single question though....Grrr!

Linda said...

Congrats to Elena ... what fun!

Ok, I have a question for ya ... any advice on how to get my 12 year old son to love Latin? Or just to be motivated enough to finish his lessons and remember his vocab words?

DiPaola Momma said...

I don't know who she was but a while back at some award so or other they had the camera on one of the nomitated women when they annouced that someone else won the award. She mouths something like a shocked "What?!". Seems she KNEW the prize was HERS.. so congrat to Elena.. but "What?!".

My question is how many hours a day does the hubby man spend entering contests? And does he need a BFF? I figure if my hubby hangs with him maybe some of that Midas stuff will rub off!

Elena said...

LOL!!!!!!!!!!! I can NOT stop laughing! I better not EVER go on a game show where I could win things in public because I am so giddy over this I can't even believe. I'd be an embarassment to myself if anyone saw me. REALLY??? Are you kidding me?!!! I seriously can't believe it. And I can't believe I waited until now to check on the winner. LOL!!! See more laughing. Oh Kat! YOU ROCK!! Thank you. I love you to death. And I would love you still the same even if my name wasn't up on your blog today.

Swirl Girl said...

Congratulations Elena!

Deanna said...

Yay Elena!!!

Jen said...

I this was so cool. What a lucky hubby that you have.
I want to know, how do you read so much? I just look at your list of books that you have read and I am amazed, simply amazed.

Michelle said...

My timing is appropriate for this, I think. I've been meaning to tell you how well Weeds has been going over in our house: earlier this week, a package arrived for my husband. It was season 2. He had to get up a 5am this morning. And still watched two episodes before going to bed. Because he couldn't stop at just one ;)

So assuming Weeds isn't on your normal agenda, what *do* you watch (with your family) in your house?

Brandy said...

Oh gosh I'm not any good at coming up with questions...so I'll just congratulate the winner! YAY!

Jenners said...

Congrats to the winner!
And I would love for your husband to enter some giveaways on my behalf!

Here is a question:

How many books do you read a week?
What is your favorite book of all time (if you can choose just one)?

Rhea said...

I still can't believe how much Michael wins things. Amazing.

You've had amazingly awesome contests. You totally rock the blogging giveaway world.

And I'll think about some questions for you. I'm tired and grouchy tonight. The creativeness isn't coming.

WHAT!!!???? Oh my GOODNESS! ELENA! You never win! What happened?!!! I LOVE IT!

Okay...see? I would be right there in the audience making just as much a fool out of myself watching you win up on stage! lol!!!

You love LOST...you love it. That prize is such a posession to have...and we're not even going to start on the fabulous food thingy's. I will have to hear you saying, "mmmmMMMmm....MMMMMMMMM!" as you munch down those Warm Delights you whipped up with your pink spatulas whilst we chat over the phone.

Oh Kat...these prizes are just cool. I'm so happy for the friendship you and Elena have struck up over the bloggy world. Isn't it just fun? Does that count as my question? I guess not, but still, it's neat.

Congrats Elena. Here's my little clap in the air for you, all dignified and proper now that I've calmed down.

;)

rebel said...

Drat!
Congratulations Elena.

Elena said...

I got so excited with my winnings I forgot to ask my question. Do you have a theme song for your life? (Or maybe several?)

Finding Normal said...

Congrats Elena!
What contests does your hubby enter to win that loot?
What's the hardest part of homeschooling?
What are you reading?
What's your favorite junk food?

Congrats to Elena. And even though I was a little miffed that I didn't win...the song made up for it. Love the Chili Peppers!

Michelle said...

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

I didn't want to win anyways.

So there.

Humph.

I'll just come toyour house and drink Diet Mt. Dews andwe'll call it even.

And yeah - no fair removing posts.

Brandy said...

How about this...
If you had to give up one luxury what would be first on the chopping block? And what would you fight to keep?

heathersister said...

Well, congrats Elena! Enjoy!

Here is a question for ya Kat. Can you post your Chicken and Rice Casserole. I don't see it listed. Thanks a bunch.

Lula! said...

I love Elena. Wonder if she loves Lost like us? Oh, but she soon will.

Karen said...
