Celebrating My 100th Post With a Giveaway!

It's official! Today is my 100th blog post! Mama Mel Loves... has been around since April and I've already posted 100 times! I can't believe that happened so fast! I love blogging about all of my crazy ideas, but most of all, I love meeting some really amazing new people through my blog and through visiting other blogs! The blog world is so awesome! :) 

So, to celebrate I'm having my first giveaway! Since I've never done this before, I thought I'd start simple by giving away a sock monkey in a cute argyle "sweater", handmade by yours truly... along with a $10 Target giftcard! 

So, here's what you have to do:

1. Comment on this post and tell me why you would like to adopt Mr. Monkey. :)

For Extra Credit you can do any or all of the following. Please leave a separate comment for each extra thing you do:

2. Follow me

3. Subscribe via Email

4. Follow me on Facebook and tell your Facebook friends about this giveaway

5. Follow me on Twitter and Tweet about this giveaway with a link to this post

6. Post this giveaway on your blog with a link to this post

Each extra credit item gives you an extra entry into the giveaway. But, be sure to place a comment about each extra thing you do. Also, please leave your email address in at least one of your comments so I can get in touch with you if you happen to be the lucky winner! :) I will be choosing the winner on Monday, August 3rd, using Random.org. 

Good luck! :)

I think Mr. Monkey would get lots of love in our home. Meghan might like to claim him, but I'd like Evan to have him.

The gift card is awfully sweet too!

I have been trying to have a baby for the past year. Maybe this sock monkey would be just the good luck charm I need to make my dream a reality. I think it would look lovely in a nursery some day.

I would totally love to adopt. We have 2 "monekys" already at home! We call the kids our monkeys and it really just fits. They have yet to throw their poo at us, but you never know with kids! =)

Atlanta said...

I am now a Follower.... =) I really want that cute monkey! And the captcha at the bottom is "plese" how perfect is that? Pu-lease?

Oh, the sock monkey! I'd love to to lavish hugs and cuddles on him, while telling my 3 year old that *this* stuffed animal is just for mama! (Following you on Google Reader!)

Elaine said...

What a cutie! I know a little five-year old cutie who would love to have him herself. IF her Nana could bear to give him up. Maybe she could just visit him! :)

hyltonta said...

I definitely know my grandson would love this little guy and would give him a 'kiss-kiss', and would read stories to him, or hear stories about him. Lots of love to be shared!
