Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner

Yes, I'm a winner! (at least that's what my parents have been telling me since I was little...) But seriously, I've had some pretty good luck with some blog contests lately. Last month I won a supercool Wornfree rock tee from Katie Darby at Katie Darby Recommends (see picture). Here's the rock haiku that secured my big win! Wornfree tees make reproductions of t-shirts worn by rockstars. Mine is a reproduction of a tee worn by John Lennon. Cool, huh!

Did you notice the book I am holding in the picture? It's Ben Esch's debut novel, Sophomore Undercover! Ben gave away quite a few books on his blog-because he's awesome like that! I finally finished the last Harry Potter book with my son, J-Man (I about cried, it was so good!), so I am ready to dive into this book that I've heard from Murph (and others) that it is hifreakinglarious! Read Murph's review of SU here.

Last week I won P.J. Hoover's The Emerald Tablet on Christy's blog, too! Another book that was on my To Read list! Saweet!

And to top everything off, my blog enjoyed its 5,000th post on Monday! I'm shocked that there have been 5,000 hits since I started in mid-September. Thanks everyone for visiting here! Check my blog next week for a book giveaway! It's the least I can do for Pete's sake!

Thanks again to Katie, Ben, Christy and YOU!
You can be a winner, too! Check out Shelli's blog Market My Words for her "Comment Your Butt Off" contest! You could win a free website!

It's in the crock pot right now ;)For some odd reason, my husband and kids say winner, winner, chicken dinner all the time!

PJ Hoover said...

So exciting you won! And whoo hoo on the blog hits! Always a good thing!

Tee Brown said...

Congrats on the 5000 hits, Kelly!

And I always knew you were a winner. :)

Very cool Kelly -- congrats!

I never could figure out how to put the counter on my blog when I first started. I think I know now, but it seems like it would be pointless after it being up for so long.

WTG!!! Kelly...I haven't heard that saying, "winner, winner chicken dinner" in forever...we use to say that all the time...

Nice job on the 5000 hits...!

And they say there's no good news out there. Congrats, on everything. But congratulations especially on finishing HP. Now you can read a real book. There ain't no penis jokes in Harry Potter and a book with no penis jokes can hardly be called a book at all.

Woohooo ... you ARE a lucky one! :-) Congrats on 5000, too!

Uh, I'm thinking I need to get in on some of these blog contests!! Congrats to you.

I buy books at bookstores small and large and online at Amazon, and even at the local dollar store. I browse the book section every time I go in there and while most of them are . . . well, you know, dollar store books, I have come away with a few great finds.
