expect great things...for yourself!! Kohl's gift card giveaway!

The Holidays are a hectic time for lots of us. Lots of running around, lots of maxing out the credit cards, cold winter air, hot, stuffy department stores, hordes of people knocking into you with their shopping bags stacked all up their arms, pressing obligations, zero time to get it all done and in the end, you might wind up with a pretty ugly pair of slippers and, like, a sparkly reindeer sweater or something when what you really wanted were some pretty earrings….a new purse….some running shoes….a fancy shmancy new crockpot.

I know, especially lately when our hearts are so heavy with the unthinkable violence in our own backyard, that this Christmukkah will be about soaking in as much magical time as possible with those of us that we hold most dear in our hearts. Those cherished memories we make baking cookies with our babies for their classroom parties, opening our gifts in our jammies, hanging lights, stuffing our faces with latkes or sipping hot chocolate (spiked or not…your preference…I think we all know what I would choose thank you very much…ahem…) under a blanket on the couch with our Loves mean so much more than material things ever could ….ever.

But….and there is ALWAYS a “but”……

Isn’t it fun to go shopping??? And isn’t especially fun, in a season where everything you do is for others, to go shopping for yourself for once??? And isn’t it super duper majorly even the MOST fun when you get to go shopping for yourself and get an outrageous bargain?? And lets all take a second here, take a few deep breaths into a paper bag, have  sip of wine and imagine going shopping, for yourself, scoring an unreal bargain and getting it for FREEEEEEE cuz you won yourself a gift card from your favorite blog!!!!!! That’s me, by the way. This is your favorite blog. Duh.

Moving on…I know that’s a lot to take in, but I am here to grant you one of your Christmas wishes…cuz I KNOW one of your wishes was a little shopping spree at Kohl’s…and if it wasn’t, why are we friends?


I scored THIS cutie cutie Lauren Conrad top on my last bargain shopping bonanza and ladies, lemme tell you, it is fabulous. You can dress it up or dress it down and it is super comfy and flattering. Everything you could ever ask for in a top if you want my opinion on the matter. Good old LC comes through again...

As I am sure you already know, Kohl’s is pretty much my happy place. I go in there, and, like magic, I come out with $300 worth of fantastic things and wind up spending like 1/3 of that. it really is magic. And it makes me happy. And it’s going to make you happy too cuz the fabulous people at Kohl’s sent me a $50 gift card to give away to one of you gorgeous little things…so git ta gittin’ why don’t ya??

Merry Christmukkah, my little shopping fools!

p.s. this giveaway will run through midnight on Christmas. The winner will be posted the day after Christmas. Good luck!!!!!

I absolutely LOVE Kohl's! If I won, I'd love to get some home decor and something for my mama!

If I win this $50 I am going to buy a super hot swim suit to wear when I visit in February.

Wait - the hot tub is swim suit optional, right?

Nevermind, scratch that. I'm going to buy more bobby fly ramekins! ;)

Oooh what fun! I have NO idea what I'd buy, as I love Kohl's just as much as you! Probably some new housewears stuffs though. :)

I would definitely have to check out the Lauren Conrad stuff! I still haven't gone! I know, I know, it's right across the street!

I don't feel like limiting myself on what I'd buy if/when I win. I'm just going to leave it up to what looks most amazing at the time of my shopping spree. It's not fair to ask indecisive people to make decisions that aren't right in front of them.

I would buy a new toaster! Since my son and his family moved back home with me, we only have 1 toaster, and I have to eat gluten free, so I cannot use the toaster anymore. I sure do miss having toast in the morning! So, I think I would get a toaster just for me!

Skye said...

Well lets see ... i know it sure wouldn't be any more maternity clothes- b/c I am sick of them already. haha. I think I would put the $50 towards a new kitchen knife set- ours is rather sad and old and can't cut butter :)
