Oprah's Chrissy's Favorite Things - A Giveaway!

**WINNER SELECTED** My husband did, in fact, have a better way than just pick a number between 1 and 15! His TI89 calculator does this random integer thing, so that's what we did. And it was 2. So Tina, the Letter Factory will be on it's way to you! Stayed tuned in January...I will do another giveaway for my one year blogiversary! :o)

If you've never seen an episode of Oprah's Favorite Things, you are missing out on a bunch of adult women jumping up and down like small children and occasionally hyperventilating over incredibly awesome gifts.

I cannot give away a new minivan or honor of my 200th blog post, I do want to give away something to one of my readers! It is on a much smaller scale, but these are some of my favorite things:

The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman
Each for the Other: Marriage As It's Meant to Be by Bryan Chapel
Shepherding a Child's Heart by Ted Tripp
Bringing Up Boys by James Dobson
The Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey
WOW Worship Aqua (CD)
All About Love (CD) Steven Curtis Chapman
The Polar Express (DVD)
LeapFrog: Letter Factory (DVD)
Bamboo Spoon Set from Pampered Chef

Leave a comment on this blog post...any ol' comment...and one of you will receive one of my "favorite things" as a gift from me - your choice! I don' t have a scientific way of selecting who gets it. More than likely, I'll have my husband pick a number between one and ten (or however many comments there are). That's scientific enough, right? :o)

I appreciate you all so very much. I love your feedback. I love your encouragement! Thanks for following along!

If you don't have a Google ID, you can leave a comment use using your Name/ID...and all you have to type is your first name in the space provided. can use the Anonymous option and leave your name in the comment section!

I'd love a copy of the WOW cd because I have been wanting to listen to Christian music in my car when I'm in between Spirit FM stations!

Congrats on your 200th post. Its a way big deal.

I also think you'll get more than 10 comments!

200 blog posts! That's awesome. Even though I was older than you in high school and didn't know you all that well, I feel like I know you and your family now. So Facebook has been good for that, at least, even though it's addicting! Reading your blog is a very refreshing part of my day. So thanks for taking the time to write it.

By the way, if you haven't already, you should check into turning your blog into a book. So that you have something in hard copy to read and pass on to the kids someday!

Hope you have a great day!

I also want the letter factory ;)

Chrissy-Do you have a blog counter, how do you know you have 200 blogs? That is awesome! And I believe you were the one that said she didn't have much too say!

Mindy said...

Chrissy, when and how did you take the pacifiers away?? Alexis still has hers. I said 18 months and then 2 years and now I'm saying I'll take it away at 3, I just hope she's ready for that, because she is so attached to it.

I love reading your blog!!! It always makes me think and that's a good thing!

Felicia said...

How fun Chrissy! I love reading your blog everyday! I always wish I was in the studio at Oprah on her Favorite things show. Have a blessed week!

Sarah said...

I love reading your blog, but haven't left any comments yet. I guess this is as good a day as any to start :) Thanks for all the great encouraging things you write.

Mrs. Haid said...

You can turn your blog into a book using Blurb. I am doing thsi for my baby's blog and also for myself! Its way cool.

Ashley said...

Yea! I was just looking at mine and thinking about what I was going to blog about for my 500th!!! It's only 40ish away! This is a GREAT idea, mind if I steal it and link to you?!

If your winner wants the Bamboo spoons you know who you can order them through! ;0)

I would want The 5 Love Languages...I loaned ours to someone and never got it back...I'm desperate for a new copy! :0)

Congrats on number 200! Keep up the good work, you're always very encouraging me to make me strive to be a better woman, wife, mother, and blogger!
