Fun Giveaway!!!!

Raise your hand if you LOVE winning stuff!!!

I know my hand is raised!

The great thing is that I often win things. Apparently I've also passed this down to my son Spencer. Pretty much if Spencer or I have signed up for something you would like to win you might as well give up because one of us will probably win. Sometimes I even have to pray someone else will win a prize because I don't want to win every prize everywhere. I want others to be blessed too. : ) Hey! I've actually done that before!

Anyway, here's the deal. I know you like prizes and I like COMMENTS and WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT. Soooooo...here's the deal:

Leave me a comment on my blog (preferably) or my Facebook status that links to my blog (acceptable) telling me how much you adore me, my writing, my kids, my mechanic skills, my husband...whatever and your name will go into a drawing for an AWESOME SUPER DUPER PRIZE!!!

Here's the deal: I'm not telling what the prize is because I don't know who will be the winner yet. Let me assure you though, I have great gift giving skills! I've got a few ideas going, but it all depends on who will win! I've got man prizes and women prizes in mind!!! I've even got a Pam Prize in mind if she wins!

New and old readers can enter to win! I will mail out of town winners.

I will do the drawing Friday sometime because most good things happen on Fridays don't ya think?

**If you don't have a blogger account it's really easy to sign up so you can comment on blogs all the time!**

Brandi I LOVE you!!!!! You are such an amazing wife....mom...teacher...blogger....child of God... pretty awesome person all the way around! You know how to make me laugh and cry just by reading about you and your wonderful family. I must say one of my favorite things about you and your super family is how fun you guys are & cam find laughter in almost everything. The thing that comes to mind first is Spencer at life groups...hahahaha and Jocie when all she did was sleep when we were there. I love you Wilson's!!!

Rachel said...

You know I love you! I wrote a whole blog post about how I love you! I think that should be worth about 5 entries in your contest! :) Or, maybe you should do that if I finish my list of 100 things I love about you! :)

Christy said...

Look at you! Giving stuff away and thinking of other people when you are the one we should all be thinking of! I always read your blog...don't always take the time to log in and comment but I will today to tell you that I think you're AMAZING! (Talking about you as a person...not your boobs! Though I'm sure they are just amazing as the woman who owns them! LOL) Truthfully, I love reading your blog b/c you have to be the most encouraging woman I know. I only hope I'm half the Mom that you are and that my girls turn out as caring and sweet as all of your children are. You make me laugh, cry and hope. If I could hug you I would :) But, you're too far away :(

As a general rule I dont discuss anyone's boobs except mine. I just think that's PC. BUT I will tell you I love you and your wonderful family (we REALLY love a certain little red headed boy alot) and pray for all of you!!

I also pray for Randy because I know another guy married to a wonderfully creative (and big boobed :) girl who paints his walls bold colors while he's a work, never mastered the art of contraception (seriously a pill EVERY day, can you say vasectomy kids?) and can't stay off the endcaps at target or hobby lobby!! From what I gather from this other guy these voluptuous women can be a bit tiring. Good thing both guys are so madly in love with these bodacious babes!!

Have a wonderful week sweet cheeks,

Brandi! I am constantly encouraged by your words. I laugh and cry and am challenged every time one pops up! Your faith is something I long to have, and your parenting skills also! I love that even though I never see you, and haven't since I was like 13 that I still feel like I know your character because you are so transparent. That is a quality our generation lacks. Thank you for opening your heart to us! please don't stop! You seriously encourage me so much in my walk with the Lord!

:) It's so nice to give encouragement! We should all do it more often!

Marissa said...

P.S. I would have written those things regardless of your promptings, but it made it less awkward because you prompted it! lol! So thanks for breaking the ice :)

1. How do I adore thee? Let me count the ways. There's not a single person on earth that compares to you. In fact, I can't even think of a single person that reminds me of you. You're it!

2. I love your writing style. In a word, it's just honest. I love that whatever you need to unload on any given day, you do it on your blog. I love that I never know what I'm going to get from serious emotions to interesting facts about the winter olympics. Never a dull moment.

3. Your kids are the bees knees! They are individuals, just like you. You taught them each how to be their own person and that in your family it's safe to do so. When they go out into the world on their own, they will be full of the knowledge and confidence that they were created for a specific purpose and they are like no other.

4. I don't know much about your mechanic skills, but I do know that you can do pretty much anything you put your mind to and if you can't do it, your husband probably can. Which leads me to number 5…

5. Randy. What a guy. You really found a jewel in him. He is quiet and gentle and yet he can bust out with a guffaw at any time. He is your perfect match. And he is very loving and unselfish. I love that he and Elliott have a special connection. Did I mention skillz? He's got more than Napoleon.

Does that qualify me for an entry? I hope so, because when I saw my name up there, I got a little excitement shiver run down my spine!

High in Demand said...

Wow-We!

What can I say? Those are great words of encouragement! It's like treasure to me right now!

You all deserve to have your names in the drawing a million bazillion times!

I love love love you all!

High in Demand said...

Hey! Since I commented on my blog do I get to put my name in the drawing too? : )

Cole said...

Brandi!!! You are totally awesome! I love how we have a special friend connection, even though we don't get to hang out alot. I love that you love movies! Me too! I love that you love gifts! Me too! I love that you love to hear how special and awesome you are! Me too! I just love you!

Brandi!!! I love you and I hope you know that since I try and tell you often. I dont say those 3 words very often or to very many people. These are a few of my favorite things about you:

10. I love the way I feel when I am around you. You bring sooooo much life and joy to my life even when you are going thru your own crap.

9. I love coming over and just hanging out in our pjs and playing games or watch tv. I really love playing games and wouldnt want to play with anyone else than you (and Randy, especially when I beat him!!!)

8. I loved when I was a part of the Dream Team and we could break things together, like the laminator and pretty much anything else we put our hands to.

7. I love watching you teach the kids in Childrens Church. You do it with such passion and conviction. I am sooooo blessed that you are one of the amazing people that are in my children's lives. I am soooo glad they have you as an example!!

6. I love your blogs and how even when they are very emotional and serious, you still have witty comments or metaphors that I would NEVER think of. You are an amazing writer!!!

5. I love seeing all your Facebook Status's. Most of the time I just start laughing out loud. Then I feel really dumb when people are around me and I just all of a sudden start giggling. But its ok, Im kind of used to people looking at me like that;-)

4. I was always sooooo amazed how you manage to take care of all 20 of your kids and do all the things you do with them. The creative snacks for CCS, the projects, and just everything. Sometimes it overwhelms me when I think about all you do and take care of. Then I feel ridiculous for getting overwhelmed with my stuff.

3. I LOVE and sooooo APPRECIATE how I know I can count on you for a word of encouragement or just a listening ear and prayer. Lord knows I have needed it over this past year and you have been a rock for me. I hope that one day I can be a rock for someone else even when I have my own LOAD OF CRAP to deal with. I feel like I have just kind of shut down and shut alot of things and people out because I have been so focused on my and my stuff. But thru all youre going thru you have always checked on me and made sure Im doing ok. That means more to me than you will ever know.

2. I love it that you are my friend. We are sisters in Christ and Spiritual Family but you choose to be my friend. I treasure our friendship sooooo deeply. I have needed it and you have loved me thru my stuff and helped hold me up when I didnt even want to stand. You have stuck closer to me than a brother and I am indebted to you for it.

1. The #1 thing I love about you is:
YOUR BOOBS!!!!!!!
I dont know if all the things from 10-2 could have been possible without your amazing girls;-)

I love you soooooo much and hope we get to go out again soon!!!! Im ready whenever you are.

Brandi~ You are an amazing, fabulous, beautiful person inside and out. You are so full of life. Your smile is radiant and it lights up the room when you enter in. You are a terrifically wonderul fantabulous Mom. Your children speak of the many wonders they learn from you. It is apparent that you love the Lord beyond yourself. So many people long to have the relationship that you have with the Lord. You are an absolutley overwhelmingly astounding writer. Your words flow like rivers of milk and honey. It is like a constant invitation to partake in great riches that can only be found in brilliantly stated verbage such as yours. Reading your writing is like eating from gold trimmed plates filled with delicasies you can find only in your wildest dreams. If I had to sum you up in six words the only thing I can say with all truth and honesty is that: Brandi Wilson is 1)marvelously 2)fashioned 3)by 4)the 5)Master's 6)Hand.

High in Demand said...

Oh my goodness!

Overwhelmed by all your kindnesses!!!

I want you all to know that I'm getting ALL OF YOUR WORDS tattooed on me after the contest is over so I can read them over and over. It's going to be EPIC!

Um...maybe not. But...maybe so.

Robbye said...

well i think that elizabeth said it all......i have so enjoyed being in each others lives for the past 8 years when joey and dusti started kindergarten in mrs. brokaw's class....i love that your kids love me so much and don't mind showing it not matter where we are. i love the way you carry yourself in the difficult times because you know that the Lord loves in the most trying times...and people truly see that...thank you for continuing to be a part of my life and the life of CCS...it is a great place to be.... in the Lord's perfect will of course

Sally G said...

So, honestly, I don't think I've heard so many friends talk about one person's "girls" in quite some time! I was cracking up laughing!

On another note, I think you are an amazing (Synonym: awesome, fascinating, incredible, marvelous, prodigious, shocking, stunning, surprising, unbelievable, wonderful) person! I love reading your blog and you are the strongest woman I know! I really do LOVE you for being you!!!

Jennifer said...

Okay, what's with the boobs? Did y'all have a party and compared them? If so, why wasn't I invited? I have some pretty good ones. lol!

Anyway, this is supposed to be about you (not just your boobies, which reminds me of a really funny story about Xander. you've got to remind me!) I love taking any opportunity to tell you how much I love you.

Kim @Denim and Curls said...

Brandi, there are alot of words I can think of that would describe you and your family. Here is my favorite....y'all are fantabulous!! I dont know how you do what you. You are always positive and handle life with grace. I am going to use the phrase that RB uses...."When I grow up I want to be like you." Love you and you sweet family.
