A Romantic Giveaway

March 8, 2013Katie

Today’s post involves thinking about saying thank you and a giveaway! If you’ve been like us for the past couple of months, you’ve tuned in at least a little to the numerous music and film and television awards that have been numerous, glamorous and usually, a bit quirky. It’s always fun to see what will transpire at these festivities, from the heart gasping falls, like Jennifer Lawrence (who I adore and think recovers ever so well) to the gorgous evening wear clothes to the not so gorgeous evening wear clothes.

I’m always intrigued to hear who the award winners thank in their teary eyed speeches.

Will they make one of those statements that is so adorable that it will be remembered for decades, or will they, in the worst faux pas ever, forget to include their spouse in their accolades, spawning tabloids to throw rumors around for months.


This year’s speeches were touching from Ben Affleck’s witty but tearful advice about getting back up and not holding grudges to Daniel Day Lewis’ poking fun at Meryl Streep by saying he was the first choice to play Margaret Thatcher in Iron Lady.

Today, we’re talking about who you would thank if you had the honor of winning a big award.

And following this post – I want to thank ALL of you, my readers by offering a giveaway worthy of a romantic evening or friendly gathering for two …or four.

You’ll receive this sweet gift package of 4 crystal champagne flutes, 4 individual popcorn tubs and a box of 20 individually wrapped Merci Chocolates.

And what better to say thank you to that special loved even if you DON’T win an award but a European box of chocolates whose name translates to “Thank you”!

merci

In the comments that follow, leave a comment telling me who YOU would thank if you made to a huge achievement and won an award. Would it be your Mom, Dad, or loving spouse? Would it be your dog or cat or maybe your best friend?

The drawing will be held on Wednesday, March 13th at noon so get your comments in!

    I would thank my mom and dad who pushed me gently to excel, picked me up when I fell, and taught me to never quit.

    I would thank The Hubs, definitely, for all his support and inspiration. (I wouldn't forget him....didn't Ben forget to thank Jen one year?)

    I would thank my husband for always being the best dad, husband and supporter of me and all I do. And I would also thank my parents the the amazing job they did raising all of us kids and all the sacrifices they made.

    I would like to thank my pastor & his wife when I was growing up in Tenn. I wouldn't be the woman I am today without them.
