wow, eh?! blog entry #500…the day is here!
i knew eons ago that i wanted to host a giveaway when i reached post #500 on the blog. i have only hosted one giveaway before: that was wayyyy back when i had blogged one hundred times! for that contest, i gave away a batch of homemade cookies, and eight people entered. [i hope we surpass that number with this contest? the prize pack is better, haha!].
since the blog is less than two years old (i started blogging in january 1020), i am happy to have reached this milestone already. it helps when you blog every day! (the last time i have a date with no blog entry is december 30th of last year).
so, i have thought long and hard over many months about what i wanted to give away to celebrate today:
- it had to be something i would want to win
- it had to include themes i talk about a lot (running, the store, coffee shops, uptown waterloo…)
- it had to be kiki-quirky fun
imagine my joy when just last week, i opened a box of new stock at the store, and knew i had found the perfect prize.
we received long sleeve tshirts (they feel like cotton but wick away perspiration) featuring eight unique slogans – four for women, four for men. [click here to see an example of the women's shirt; the men's is very similar in design]. here they are:
the winner of today’s giveaway can pick one of the eight tshirt designs. the sizes available are:
women: small, medium, large, x-large
men: medium, large, x-large
i am going to include a $10 gift card for starbucks.
