Ohh, Betsy!

The Great Escape September 10, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Anna @ 8:13 am

I don’t carry a lot of luck around. I don’t have really bad luck which I’m grateful for. I have a couple of friends who have bad luck. Bad things consistently happen to them. Like my poor friend Jeanette has bad car luck. I think I’ve known her during her ownership of at least four cars and none of them have proven to be steadfast and worthy. And then there’s good luck which again, I don’t posses. I also have friends who have really, really good luck. The sort of luck that would be very helpful if they chose to gamble in Las Vegas. They just win stuff. Good stuff.

With the advent of blogging contests, I attempted last summer to win myself something. I thought, somewhere, somehow with all these contests I could win something. I was determined. I entered everything.  Nada. Nothin’. So the other day my friend Rachael waved a new contest in my face and since it’s attached to a meme and I haven’t done one in a while, I thought I would give it a shot (although I’m fully aware I won’t win).

This is contest entry for those crazy folks at TodaysMama and Cricut. Be sure to check out Cricut’s cool new cartridges and the chance at $30,000 in travel for you and your friends at the Great Gypsy Escape site!

Prague or Karlovy Vary in the Czech Republic.

Either the lobster while on our cruise in the Bahamas or the baba ganoush in NYC.

Now I know some of you would love to have a Cricut so just post and answer the meme questions on your blog and then send a link to your post via email at info@todaysmama.com with “Cricut Meme” in the subject line.

Good luck (because you are sure to have better luck than me)!

    I hope you win!!! Ha, I really do have the absolute WORST car luck ever. The curse of the lemon cars.

    So I freaking Love Pride and Prejudice (the BBC version), your guilty pleasure sounds divine and I’m not sure how you felt about the Hunger Games, but since I am all about those kinds of books, I absolutely loved it and the sequel which just came out. I would love to read that other book you mentioned too, so I shall add it to my list!

    Loves and hugs!

    Dude, I thought that baba ganoush was just like a name that people called each other on shows like taxi back in the 70’s. didn’t even know it was a food! 😀
