Want to Win a Laptop? I Did!

How many times have you seen a really awesome giveaway and thought that there was no way that you could win it?  Up until the day I won my own, I thought the same thing and never even bothered to try.  

I honestly do not even remember entering, because I always just passed things like that right up, but I did and I am so glad I did it. The Fashionable Housewife is one of the first blogs I started following and they always had giveaways going on.  I think I only ever put in the one initial entry for one or two things that I really wanted to win.  

I do remember seeing the HP Touchsmart laptop that was being given away to promote Sex and the City 2, but I forgot about it entirely until I saw my name on Facebook and then a corresponding email from The Fashionable Housewife in my inbox :)  

Okay, I originally wrote this post because The Fashionable Housewife was giving away another laptop, but the winner was drawn yesterday, so you can no longer enter.  But, it just goes to show that you cannot win if you don't try. 

This weekend I had some other great prizes show up at my door. 

First was a shirt from Alight, and even though it wasn't quite what I was expecting I think I can make it work. 

Then I won a guessing game on Facebook held by Pink Dandy and received a bottle of Pink Watermelon lotion. It is fabulous, and everyone should go check out her store! I plan on buying for my Christmas baskets. 

What has everyone else won?!


  1. CONGRATULATIONS!!! That is SUPER exciting! I won a cook book last month and I was excited enough by that, cannot imagine what it felt like to win something this big!!

  7. OMG congrats! That's an awesome prize. Thanks for stopping by What We Won Wednesday. I'd love for you to link this up! I entered this giveaway too but i didn't win this one. Yes, I am a firm believer in "You can't win if you don't enter"

  8. Congrats! I entered that too. I've won a lot of great stuff that has made my life more comfortable and sometimes just more fun, and for my kids as well. I'm still trying for that laptop though, lol. I've helped a lot of family out with my wins as well, especially my great nieces with some wonderful baby items.
