Yesterday, I posted on Facebook, “I’m rich!” and left for work. I received the following comments-unedited thankyouverymuch:A friend’s hubs: “share?” Penny’s dad: “Lotto? Find a $20 in your winter coat pocket? Enquiring minds…” A friend: “I guess payday.” Mama Missy’s Mama: “I’m guessing it is not money!” Molly: “PAYDAY!!!!” My aunt: “Remember poor old Aunt Nanette and Uncle Gary…lol. Seriously, what’s up? A friend: “Yay!” A friend: “Say it like Chappelle!”
Obviously, the hype was because after 6 months of unemployment and 3 months of hourly wages, I finally received a nice chunk of change dumped into my bank account…you know, one that I don’t have to pay back to the Department of Education.
In honor of my very first pay day from my new job, I’ve decided to share the love/wealth and host my very first giveaway! (Don’t worry, Mom…I promise it’s not going to break the bank).
As a blogger who feels like she finally entered the blogosphere, I’ve gotten involved. I participated in my first “secret admirer” swap (and got a sweet scarf, to boot!), I’ve received and passed on sweet chain-like-but-wonderful-awards, and I’m even participating in a blogger reading event called Project Fairy Tale. Blogging seems to be a really great outlet for me to tell my story, and I’m having the time of my life doing it. I decided it’s time to play the giveaway game.

What do YOU think is in the goodie bag?
Oh! Oh! Okay. I’m guessing that the giveaway has something to do with cheese!!!!
That would be awesome.
Is it a bag full of McDonald’s game pieces? Wait, is that still going on? Red hair dye? I’m so excited. I am going to tweet this post like a mad woman.
I think there’s a book in there… possibly a banned book. Huck.
I’m thinking something Disney? Maybe a Disney bookmark?
I am thinking a book, bookmark, and some snacks!
There’s gotta be some cheese in there. HAS to be. Otherwise it can’t be labeled as “Chrissy’s favorite things”
I’m loving all of your guesses! O:-)
Fishies!!! I have seen you slurp down many tasty fishies!
That’s just drunk Chrissy trying to get attention!
I’m going to guess cheesy delicious Cheetos!! 🙂
Likely some port wine to go with a parcel of really stinky cheese.
