Big Giveaway

The Gabblog has been visited over 50,000 times! (This is what happens when you have a really big extended family who would rather click on your webpage than call you on the phone...)

Now, I know this is small potatoes for all you super-cyber people out there, but for a soccer mom in the suburbs it's cause for celebration! (I don't think I've ever had 50,000 anything, with the possible exception of Peanut M&Ms at peak PMS moments and unsightly facial blemishes my sophomore year.)

And to show my appreciation, I'm hosting a little giveaway.

Leave a comment sometime in the next five days and, on Wednesday, I will randomly select five winners to receive a little gab-love via US Mail.

Thanks, friends!

(p.s. I originally titled this post "thanks-a-half-million." It was such a cute name but, obviously, I need to go back to remedial math.)

So what you're saying, is you're going to send ME a gift? right? Because you can totally "fix" it because it's your blog and I promise I won't tell anyone EVER. Never ever. cross my heart.

Hollyween said...

I'm all for a giveaway! Pick ME!
Ya know what's even worse is that I wouldn't have even flinched if you put half a million as your title. Duh, Holly!

dede said...

as your 50,127th hit, I say congratulations - that's a huge deal!
If you would have stuck with your "thanks-a-half-million" title, I am sure I wouldn't have noticed the error (and now you have one all ready!)!

Darby said...

congrats and LOL at the math comment, that is totally something i would have done! :)

Lauren in GA said...

You and Stie can take 5th grade math together!!! Just kidding...If I were a bettin' girl I would say that I am the worst at math in all the land.

Hey, soccer mom or not, 50,000 is AMAZING!

Amanda D said...

50,000 is a HUGE deal! Way to celebrate!

jessica said...

I was a silent reader for months before I braved an actual comment. I am so intimidated by you famous bloggers that it took awhile to make myself known.

I am totally commenting on this one...I LOVE give aways!

lusciouschaos said...

Lucky 50K. I am just over 6k so the numbers are low enough to care. Count me in. As I read your blog I'm sure we would be friends. Course I used to feel that way about Oprah too. Not so much since she openly declares that marriage is not for her. Sets a bad example.

andrea said...

thanks a half million. i'm the grammar nazi, not the math czar. i probably would've gone around thinking how cute and clever you were, unless you had a spelling error.
either way, thanks however-much-it-is for all your entertaining posts!

Bridget said...

YOu are well loved girlfriend. Here's to hoping the winner is ME, ME, ME!!

Annemarie said...

Oh man...I want to win.

Congrats Gab!! It's 50,000+ beacuse you are soooo amazing!!

Does brown nosing make my chances better???

Rochelleht said...

YEAH YOU!!!

I know that at least 25,000 on my counter are all me.

Congrats, friend.

Jolene said...

50k is a BIG deal. We should all be sending YOU prizes for keeping us so entertained!

Rosalynn said...

That is a huge deal, congratulations!!

Lisa-Marie said...

yippee. we'll all be here for the next 50k. you are such a fun read. keep it comin!

Lara said...

Okay...so you don't know me, right? Well, I have been "spying" on you for some time and I ABSOLUTELY love you! You are so optemistic, loving and witty. Every time that I read your blog I have a nice laugh and/or am uplifted. I am not sure what you would say in your "gab-love" note if you were to send me one (since you don't even know me at all) I mostly just wanted to tell you how much I admire you and how much I enjoy reading your incredible blog. Thanks Gab.

HILLARY said...

Congratulations! That is so cool. I don't even have a meter or anything to follow. I'm not that popular (and that's ok with me. The pressure, ugh!)

I hear you on the peanut m&m's. Do you know that Costco has a coupon right now for $2 off the Biggg bag?

Lindsey said...

Wooo hooo! My counter doesn't count my own hits to my site, so, it will take me a lot longer to get there! Maybe I should change that!

Jenibelle said...

I am so impressed by the costumed children, some of whom I do not recognize, that I'm not sure what I am supposed to do!! So cute and so clever and so Gabi!!!!

(And Andrea the grammar nazi drives Jeni, the spelling and capitalization nazi crazy. LOL!!!)

Clair said...

Now this is the way to get the stalkers to make themselves known. Gotta tell Andrea. Enjoy your blog you clever girl. And I wouldn't have thought twice about half a million I would have just thought "wow, that's a lot!!!"

beckyV said...

I read your blog all the time and don't usually comment, but I cannot resist a free giveaway!! But I love your blog, it is so fun and you are such a great writer-keep up the great posts!

wenderful said...

Not surprising. I'm sure I'm not your only daily visitor. Congratulations Gab!

TravelinOma said...

Blogopalooza!!!

diane said...

Wow I'm impressed. You do have a fabulous blog.

Now, pick me!

Just A Mom (call me JAM for short) said...

I'm new in town and I've been wondering where all the cool "kids" are hanging out. I guess I've found it! Congratulations.

Jeanelle said...

I'm officially entered, I hope. And thank you for commenting on the headphones blog. I know it made Tyler happy to get a comment! :)

♥Shally said...

WOW! Good for you!

It won't be long before you can use the "half a million" title!

Melissa-Mc said...

Hey, I'm 50,200! Wow. When Jesse and I saw your profile pic on the BHS website I told him you were famous in the blogworld. Congratulations.

Aimee said...

That's quite an accomplishment... way to go! Can't remember when I started reading your blog, or how I found it, but you do a great job. Love reading the interviews you do on others. :)

Meg said...

WOW! This is so exciting. Just to think I might win something is a bit of a thrill.

brooke said...

Congratulations--I think this is my first comment on your blog but I've been reading you for a long time and always get a good laugh when I read your stuff.

Paige said...

I'd go with 1/2 a million. All your readers probably wouldn't notice because most of us bloggers prefer to write than do math. I wanna win.

Cynthia said...

I probably would have seen the number and titled the post "thanks 50 million".
Congrats.

Susan said...

I found your blog through my sister-in-law Casey. I enjoy reading your entries. Please keep on writing.

Jan said...

Amazing! I'm one of those -- but this is probably my first comment.
