Giveaway! BuildaBear Gift Card

Well This. Is. It.

My own personal Blogavershury!
I'm one this month.
Yessirree. I blogged my whole year away. And to celebrate...

Build A Bear $25 Gift Card For You.
(If you comment. And follow the rules. And you're nice...and maybe say happy blogavershury)

My daughter a year back wanted a bear from Build A Bear something fierce. And we said sure, but they are kind of expensive... How about you work towards earning half and we'll pay half...

And kind of like that. (I mean not that you are my kid or anything...)

But Today? I have a Build A Bear gift card for you in the amount of $25... now that will buy you an awesome bear (or Frog) and you can find great ones on the site (and they aren't naked or anything) for about that price. But if you are willing to save your pennies like my daughter.. you could have this one in time for dying 'O the river green!

$38 for Irish Dancer Happy Go Lucky...

Or this one for your very own luv bug (I know you have one).

Hawaii Hello Kitty

And does everyone need a Hula Hello Kitty?
I think you do.

Okay for the boring blah blah blah.. 2 rules.

1) when you comment (and I know you will..right!?) you MUST share at least one other person's awesome blog url with me. No you can't put your own url, that would be cheating and cause for kickoutableness.


2) you must click the cute little tweet bird and tweet about this contest... don't have a twitter account? Then post this link on your Facebook page. Don't have a Facebook page? Um.. WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? Just contact me and I'll hook you up with some social media good, yes it's like heroin and yes I'm the dealer in this scenario.

Yes you must complete both steps to qualify. And let's see.. This contest will end... Friday Feb. 20th at 7PM Pacific Time. Did I forget anything?

Oh yeah.Thanks for a great year!
PS. you should probably leave a way for me to contact you.. don't know how to connect your blogger profile to your email? Here's a TUTORIAL. And I'd love to have your twitter username!

Happy one year blogging anniversary! My ten year anniversary is coming up in September of 2011... crazy. Time really does fly!

Anyway, I absolutely love Build-a-Bear! My husband and I made animals for each other (bear for him, cat for me) back when we were dating in 2000 and 2001. Now we take our four and a half year old daughter there every few months. ;)

That said, I highly recommend! She doesn't update as frequently as she used to, but I love her blog entries.

Thanks for this great giveaway!

I have always wanted to be able to take my son to Build a Bear and actually buy something. I admit we went in there just to look once and I felt so guilty not buying him something after he went around a picked out superhero bear pj's and undies.
