|Bitter...party of one....|
Hard to believe I am 2 weeks short of doing this DG thing for a whole year!! I can tell you exactly how it started! A funny lady named Jen, or as I call her Professor Punch wrote a post about the elf on the shelf that went viral overnight. When I read it (if you haven't already, click here to read), I laughed so hard I had a stomach cramp. It takes some VERY funny stuff to get a laugh out of me, so I continued to read her stuff that night, and ended up reading her blog - in. its. entirety. I had been keeping an unpublished blog just for my own sanity and survival of being a mother to 3 boys, but never had the guts to publish it, until I read her stuff. She openly admitted she was not perfect, nor was she trying to be. I loved that honesty so much that I decided to put myself out there too.
Little did I know that she and I would become friends. She's been a mentor, a friend, and an endless resource of information and laughs. I had the pleasure of spending an entire weekend with her at Blog Her NYC 2012. She is just as funny, bubbly, and wonderful as you would hope she'd be. I am fortunate to have a signed copy of her book, Spending the Holidays with People I Want to Punch in the Throat made out to me - and she was generous enough to send me an extra one to give away to one of my lovely friends.
Not only will the winner get a copy of the signed book, but I will also send a long a holiday survival kit with some goodies in the box!
If you'd like a funny review of this hilarious book, my dear friend over at You Know it Happens at Your House, too posted a good one. We are going to do the giveaway together so there are TWO winners! So here's the link to enter below! Winners will be announced on our Facebook pages on Wednesday December 5th! We'll post winners on our blog, too. Winners have 24 hours to claim their Survival Kit and if they don't, we will yank the prize out of their invisible hands and rafflecopter will pull new ones.
PS - What I'd really like to give away is lunch with her (and me of course) but the logistics are kind of tough unless we do it in Chicago next July when both of us are there for BlogHer 2013. Maybe that will be my next giveaway? Spending your lunch hour with People I Want to Punch in the Throat and DG? Takers? (why do I hear nothing but *crickets*??)OK - we'll add a chair for You Know It Happens at Your House, too just to sweeten the deal - and maybe she'll bring Johnny Depp. Ha! Stay tuned for that contest.
