I love a win-win

One secret about me is I love contests, sweepstakes and other things where I might have a chance to win something. I don't go crazy about it. Like, I don't buy lottery tickets or spend hours stamping my name and address on 3-by-5 cards. But if I can enter a contest fast and easy, then I'll do it.

The Her Bad Auction was one example -- a great, worthy cause that raised $3,000! -- and I even won something being raffled. Yay! The best part is that it helped Muscular Dystrophy research and boosted Her Bad Mother's nephew's spirits. In my humble opinion, it also helped the blogosphere to open their hearts a little -- and what better time than the holidays? It's a win-win, and I hope there will be more do-gooding raffles like this one again. (Er, not that I am signing up to organize them. At least not right now.)

Now there is a contest by Havins Originals children's clothing for sayings on a new line of baby clothes. I couldn't resist.

So here are some sayings I'd like to see on baby clothes:

Kickin’ it in my crib
Talk gurgly to me
I live hand to mouth
Love me
Bald and beautiful
Don't fear the sleeper (or Don't fear the creeper, I can't decide which)

I'm sure you blogland folks can come up with better than these. So you go and enter too!

"Talk gurgly to me" - That's my favorite ;)

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm looking forward to the exchange, too. Another great topic. Happy Holidays and I'll be in touch next week!
