FANCY-PANTS GIVEAWAY!

I've been blogging for just over a year, and it's time for a giveaway.

Keep in mind, I'm not Pioneer Woman, who gives away KitchenAid mixers and $350 Target gift cards. My prizes are more like the booty in the Cracker Jack box.

Today, I'm offering $35 in coupons to Coldwater Creek clothing store.

With Pioneer Woman, you simply have to type anything in the 'comments' box, and you're entered.   Winners are randomly drawn.  It must be this way, because Pioneer Woman has 20 million viewers a week. 

Here at the Ballpark, your odds of actually winning are much higher.  Like 1 in 4.  And with my giveaways, you actually have to use your brain.  Not much, but a little.  

Answer these five questions correctly, and I'll mail you these....


The bottom coupon expires 8/31, so you want to be on the ball here.

Off we go...

1.  A few weeks ago, I had a run-in with mango juice that resulted in a doctor's visit and medication.  In the post I wrote about that unfortunate event, I stated that when I was well, I was going to test that allergy again to see if I was truly allergic to mango skin.  Have I chopped up any mangoes since my arm has healed?

a.  yes
b.  no

d   plug-a-crackaplasty


3.  Below is a picture of seven shirts I recently purchased at a thrift shop. 


What was my total bill?

a.  $30.25
b.  $22.78
c.  $16.42


4.  I discovered yesterday that someone actually DOES tend to my sweet little rose bush.  Unbeknown to me, someone has been watering and fertilizing the tiny thing, keeping it alive and well, so I can continue to be amazed.  Who is my secret gardener?

c.  the mailman
d.  my dad


5. What is my favorite TV show of all time?

There ya' go!  Just enter the letter of your answer in the comment section (example:  1. a,  2. c), and I'll mail the CC coupons to the whoever gets the right answers.  Or the most right answers.  If more than one person answers all correctly, the coupons go to whoever answers first.   Deadline for entries is noon EST Wednesday August 10th.

Isn't this exciting?!?!

Not exactly the Publisher's Clearinghouse, but prizes might improve down the road. 

Good luck!

Ok, this is great. I love it!! 1.B 2.a. 3.b 4.a 5.a Ok, so I know that Phil and Mary would both probably know all the answers so I kept looking at what they said. But here are my best guesses. If you peeled another mango without major protection, you are crazy!!! I can't believe you are that crazy. I am so glad to have been able to participate in this fun contest. I love thinking that you did this. I just finished classes for the summer and I feel like I can breath again. We should talk. Love you Mare, Cindy
