It's A (For)Giveaway!

I know.... I KNOW! I haven't posted in like FOREVER! And now I waltz in here and expect you guys to just look at me!!... look at me!!! OK, first of all, I truly have missed you all. I even dream about you because I miss you so much. Oh relax... everyone always has their clothes on and nobody's missing any teeth. Secondly, I'm having a giveaway, so you'll all forgive me for my leave of senses absence, yes? Think of it as a forgiveaway. (You still love me.... I know you do.)

I haven't been posting because I haven't been cooking. I'm eating chocolate. Seriously. Just chocolate. But it's dark chocolate so it's good for me (you know, like red wine?) Anyway, when I saw this idea on Facebook, I decided to expand my daily chocolate repertoire to include bags of chocolate chips because now I can literally pour them into my mouth from a bottle (you know, like red wine?) Some day I WILL think of something this brilliant. Swears.

OK.... back to that giveaway. I was fortunate enough to receive the most wonderful product to try, ChicWrap plastic wrap. I do realize that it seems a little ridiculous to get so fired up about a box of plastic wrap, but if that chocolate chip bottle idea made me giddy, I'm telling you that this plastic wrap box positively made me SQUEAL and SWOON. (I think I may have even experienced my very first SQUEAOON.) I love the design selections offered for ChicWrap, but I'm secretly in love with the design concept itself. It's refillable! That makes it a thousand times better than a Kleenex box, but what you're really going to dig is the plastic wrap itself. It's professional grade. It's like falling in love with plastic wrap all over again. And don't tell me you don't remember your first time.

All you have to do to enter into a drawing for a box of ChicWrap is visit the ChicWrap website, browse around a bit to find your favorite pattern, and then leave a comment on my blog telling me what your favorite pattern is. I won't judge you regardless of which pattern you pick... swears.
This giveaway will be open until midnight on May 31, 2012 and then I shall randomly select the winner. Open to U.S. and Canadian residents only.

Good luck to everyone and remember, like Mama always says, "Life is like a bottle of chocolates. Drink up."

love,
Mags

p.s. Thank you again EP for the lovely email you sent this morning. It truly did make my day and inspired me to finally get off my behind and post something.

EMK said...

Hi Cousin!
Your blog brightens my day and brings a smile to my face. My husband wonders what I am laughing at.
The triangles are sooooooooo colorful and my favorite.

Niece Denise said...

I dig the modern dots! But not as much as I like your blog --or you! :)

Suzy said...

I'm a California Girl!

Kim said...

I like the California one, BUT I have an idea for the company or for you to give the company. They should have a self design one (like iphone cases and such) that you can upload a favorite photo or a snapshot of your own kitchen decor and order a custom made one. :-)

Jody Johnson said...

I like the cooking utensil box. Very cute!

stephchows said...

I'd totally go for the triangles. Welcome back! :)

Mary Jo Bockrath said...

It's hard to make up my mind...or what's left of it! They are all cute patterns. If I have to pick I'd go with modern dots, since it matches my kitchen. But then again....hmmmm....

The Mom Chef said...

What a weird idea. They're really cool, huh? Modern Dots fits me best, I think.

I've missed you, lady. I finally went to the other side of fifty and you bagged out on me.

Come back? Even if you don't cook. I like your humor. And you know, I have this whole mood thing, I get hot suddenly, all the mess. I need to laugh.

Just found your fun blog. The triangles are my favorite. :-)

Barbara said...

I'd have to have CITRUS since I live in Florida's heartland! Besides, I love it! Thank you for this opportunity - I truly appreciate it because we go through a LOT of plastic wrap. We portion all our meat, wrap it, then freeze it.

M.J. Jacobsen said...

Just seriously happy you are back! (can seriously and happy be ok?!) Anyhoo, love the Citrus, very cool stuff!

I can't decide what I like more: your blog (and delicious recipes)or the wonderful invention you are sharing with us. I can promise you this: that Triangle box of cling wrap will be in my house one day soon...I think I will even give them out as gifts to all my lady friends who love great ideas.
You are such a creative and inspiring joy to have found.
Thank you for being you...and sharing yourself with all of us.
