Target $100 GiftCard Giveaway

Hi. My name is Shawnda and I am a Target junkie.

“Junkie” is… maybe a stretch. But between Cartwheel and price-matching with Amazon and the 5% off with my Target debit card and always free shipping… I’m usually out of my budgeted fun money by the 4th of every month.

If I can’t find it at Target, it has less than a 5% chance of ever hanging in my closet. True story.

And speaking of… It’s the second My Favorite Things Giveaway! And I don’t care how fabulous that iPad is, this is by far my favorite things of all the favorite things :)

Does your Visa need a bandaid? Do you need an extra pair of galaxy kitten tights? Want to just spend 30 minutes of quiet time trying on clothes at Target, no questions asked and no one telling you that she has to go potty every 5 minutes when you know she just wants to play in the water fountain for the 3rd time but you don’t have a spare change of clothes for her and what happens if she really isn’t kidding this time?

Her biography will be titled “The Girl Who Cried Potty.”

Simply answer this question in the comments below: What is your favorite Christmas movies?

You guys turned me on to Elf and it now very closely rivals Christmas Vacation as my favorite Christmas movie. Elf is a lot easier to watch with an almost-4-year-old, although she refers to Christmas Vacation as “The Christmas movie with the Mommy words.” But I still gotta go with Clark & Cousin Eddie.

Update: The winner is… Michelle with comment #118! Thanks for reading – and check your meail!

{closed} My Favorite Things Giveaway: 16GB iPad!

iPad 2

Happy Thanksgiving, guys! Can you believe we’re almost ready to drop a “peace the [bleep] out” on 2013? So far, it has been a pretty normal year for us – plenty of stress and a bunch of reminders about how being an adult can totally suck sometimes. Throw in that bonus scary medical “fire drill” and we are ready for the thankful, holly, and jolly holiday season. SOOOO ready. We are alive and healthy and we have some of the greatest friends and family that anyone could ask for.

And you guys? You’re pretty &^%$#@! awesome, too.

We hope you guys are able to spend this weekend with the people you live. Or like. Or are at least tolerable after a couple of cranberry margaritas – whatever it takes to deal.

We don’t judge. But we do invite you to say hello to the first of our My Favorite Things holiday giveaways: iPad 2 16GB. A fancy schmancy iPad.

My little friend who has been a tremendous help in reducing new cookbook clutter. My little friend who is always on the kitchen island, ready to help me conquer another dinner recipe, one sort of clean knuckle-swipe at a time.

Unless it’s upstairs on the treadmill because I had to run inside due to the rain. Or next to Jason’s bike trainer because he swiped it to watch mountain bike racing while he rides inside. Or hidden under the covers of The Little’s bed because she wanted to watch Dinosaur Train in peace. Or in the bathroom because – WHY IS MY IPAD IN THE &^%$#@! BATHROOM AGAIN?!

So much for those deep breathing exercises.

Would you like a chance to find your shiny new white iPad in a place you really don’t want other people taking it? Simply answer the following question in the comments below: What was your favorite Christmas gift to receive as a child?

Update: The winner is… The Home Cook with comment #404. Thanks for reading – and check your email!

I’m going to call it that sparkly navy blue 10 speed bike that I know Santa’s elves had to work extra hard to afford that year. But maybe yours was an EZ Bake Oven? A bucket of those heel-assassinating green army men? A laptop? A puppy? A baby?! - I have a friend who can actually say this!

You can earn up to 3 extra entries by:
– Leaving a separate comment below that you follow us on Twitter.

Are ya feelin’ lucky? (winner announced)

I am. Well, sort of.

I’m on a temporary carb hiatus which means I’m frequently grouchy as all hell. But, I’M NOT IN JAIL – something that might not be so far off after a carb junkie like me dropped sugar and flour and bread and pizza crust and everything else that’s awesome and crunchy.

However, in those few (and thankfully getting farther between) moments where I don’t feel like I could punch a baby for some of HEBs Multigrain Pita Chips (see what I mean?), I actually do feel pretty good.

Like really good. And a homemade skinny margarita (ahem, or you know… two… ish) is perfectly within acceptable limits :)

BUT, that means that everything that I could possibly load up with disgusting amounts of green food coloring to “celebrate” St. Patrick’s Day in the most American way possible… pretty much off limits right now.

Thank the heavens that guacamole is not off limits. Because I might actually punch someone.

But speaking of being lucky, someone will get a shiny new KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer of their very own. To enter, simply leave a comment below telling me what your favorite green food or drink is!

Update: And the winner is Lisa with comment #654 whose favorite green food is Spinach Pesto. Solid choice!

You can earn up to two bonus entries by:
– Tweeting about the giveaway and leave the link to your tweet as a separate comment in the comments below.
– Leaving a separate comment that you follow Confections of a Foodie Bride on Pinterest.

(Bonus entries must be left as a separate comment – your comment number is your entry number.)

Good luck!

The fine print:
– Maximum of three (3) entries per email address.
– Giveaway ends at 12:01am (Texas time!) on March 22nd.
– Winner will be selected by one of those cold, soulless, unfeeling random number generator thingies and announced on this post after selected.
– Winners will receive KitchenAid 5-Quart Artisan Stand Mixer (maximum retail value of prize = $349; color choice subject to availability from provider’s selected supplier).
– Prize must be claimed within 7 days or it will be forfeited.
– Prize can only be shipped to a US address.
– All prizes are provided by Confections of a Foodie Bride, unless stated otherwise.
– Official giveaway rules can be found here.

Nespresso U Giveaway

Nespresso Giveaway

That almost says it all, huh?

The Novice Chef, Bake Your Day, My Life as a Mrs, Pennies on a Platter, Lauren’s Latest, and I have teamed up with Nespresso for a pretty sweet giveaway. 5 winners will receive a Nespresso U and an Aeroccino Plus Frother!

The U is Nespresso’s newest single-cup machine. It features one-touch capsule brewing, a water tank than can be positioned to fit Tetris-style onto your kitchen countertop (I know I’m not the only one with this problem!), and it remembers the size of your favorite cup. Add frothy milk from the Aeroccino Plus and then just sit back and enjoy the quiet before the storm.

The sounds of birds, the ice maker on the fridge refilling, and the occasional hiss of the school bus’ air brakes. Because as soon as the alarm goes off and the other creatures are awake, it’s all chaotically downhill from there for the next 71 minutes.

But enough about my mornings, let’s talk about yours! Want a chance to brew fancy coffee drinks in your kitchen with a shiny new machine? Simply click the entries in the Rafflecopter widget below!
