Bloggy Carnival Giveaway Day 5- $25 Target Gift Card

**COMMENTS NOW CLOSED** Short and sweet today. I'm a bargain shopper by nature. I avoid paying full price whenever I can. I research things online and cut coupons. This is the first time in several years the holidays are going to take more than a little creativity on my part. And I know I'm not alone. Hopefully this will help.

To enter:
1. Leave a comment. More than "enter me," or "I'm in!" please. What are you doing this weekend? What did you have for dinner last night? Tell me a joke. Whatever.

2. I MUST have a way to get in touch with you! NoReply@Blogger will not send you a response. I will have to delete comments with no contact info.

3. Comments will close on Friday, October 31st at 11:59pm CA time.

4. I will use random.org to draw the winners and post the results/notify winner via email and in a "Winners" post on Saturday 11/1.

6. You don't need a blog to win, but I MUST have a way to contact you. US residents only (sorry!)

***My other 4 giveaways also end tonight. Odds are pretty good!***

Day 1: chocolate from Jer's Handmade


Day 2: handmade pendant from Etsy seller EarthExpressions


Day 3: great fiction book, $5 each to Starbucks/Barnes and Noble, tote


Day 4: enviro friendly Dropps laundry soap

I also served leftover cake from one of my childrens birthdays- I did an oopsie and double a recipe that was for a huge sheetcake so I stacked it and frosted- its a huge cake that will last awhile. So thats what I had for dinner or made for dinner. Weekend is gonna be busy......hope you have a great one!

  10. Right now seems like sick and injured is the name of the gamer in my family. I've been at my sister's watching her kids (I'm their only babysitter)I'm fighting off bronchitis, the 5 year old twins both have cold... where else did my bronchitis come from. One of them also has a stomach bug which he then passed on to the 19 month old. The baby hit the terrible twos at about 6 months and is still going strong. My poor BIL is afraid to take him to the parade at school tomorrow because the poor kid looks like he had a terrible accident. He actually did both things to himself but if you weren't there who would believe it. Yesterday he decided to roll off a chair to keep me from taking him off since he wasn't supposed to be up there to start, Tonight the tread is nearly gone off his blanket sleeper feet and he tried to crawl onto his big brothers toy box and fell hitting his face. There were 4 adults in the room and none of us could keep it from happening. So he has a fat lip with bite marks, a bruised cheek. He got down after both and immediately tried to climb back up again. That child has no fear and limitless energy. Sometimes he makes me feel so old. Hard to be positive after 36 hours like that.

  47. Right now I'm FREEZING I as write this. BRRRR!!!

    We had parent/teacher conferences last night for one of our children (the other one is next week). We were SHOCKED that we got positive and encouraging words from my son's teacher, the school psychologist and from another teacher who is helping him. We also heard from the school psychologist that our son doesn't has Aspergers (a form of Autism) that a pediatric neurologist said he had. That is a MASSIVE relief to us!!! I wanted to cry I was so happy!!!

    What else? Humm... I just ate a Milky Way bar (snack size) and it's 9:25 in the AM! LOL! BAD ME!!!!

    Thanks for a great giveaway! This will come in handy for holiday shopping.

  134. How about "enter me" AND "I'm in!"?

    Last night I got a text that woke me up. I decided to check it out. It was my mom telling me she was home safely. From what? This bugged me all night until I texted her in the morning. Seems she went to Seattle for work and never told me. It's amazing what I never am told living 20 hours away...

  172. Well, this looks like it is a favorite one. I can't say that I blame so many people for wanting in on it! We are going to a Trunk-or-Treat tonight, with the whole home costumes. I just can't bring myself to spend money on one when I am sure I can come up wtih something. My daughter is going to be a mummy, a bit of gause and all is good. This year my son is going as an iPod, and he loves it. The first thing he did upon waking up was take his costume off the table and try and put it on. He got to help a bit with it, and I think that makes all the difference! P.S. Last year he was a cell phone. I am not sure if I know how to make sure the comments are not noreply, I hope that does it. Sign me up we are ready to win! I hope you have a great weekend full of treats and maybe a trick or two!

I made my costumes, as always. I just can't see spending money on prefab ones. Saturday is promising to be a good lazy day, kind of my favorites. I love target....they just have the best prices for kids clothes, and my monkeys just keep growing, thus the need for good inexpensive clothes, eh? Have a great weekend, and thanks for doing these give-aways! (fripan at gmail dot com)
