Am I Seeing Things?!?!!

A Mrs F Giveaway?!! Could it be? That's Unprecedented!

Believe it. I've decided to send out one of our family's Compacting Christmas gift boxes, each week for the first three weeks of December, to a few of my readers. That was a mighty long sentence... did it make any sense?

Here's the deal:
Anyone who is interested in getting one of our fabulous gift boxes filled with holiday cheer needs to let me know in the comments. I'm going to leave it running until next week when I'll have the kids draw the names out of a hat (or more likely a bowl). I'll then post the three winners. I want these to go to whoever wants them. You don't have to be a regular commentor (attention lurkers) just a regular reader.

If a little bit of Furious cheer would brighten your holiday then this is for you!


P.S. I guess I should make it clear that absolutely every reader is eligible (except you Mom... oh and you Mr F). It doesn't matter if I know you or even if I know you know you. ;)

P.P.S. If you don't have a Google account but still want in just shoot me an email and I'll put you in the drawing (sorry I didn't think of that earlier). mrsfurious at hotmail dot com

I have to just tell you that I've loved reading your blog. I've learned so much about organics! With out your help I probably would have NEVER thought for a sec about the soap we use. :P


Hope you're having a great FRIDAY! :)

Im not sure how to do the linky thing in comments so youll have to copy paste :)

Staci said...

Mrs. F~
How lame am I? I just had to mapquest Troy! :P Newaygo or Oakland county?

Unfortunately, I won't be heading either way in the next week. :(
I SOOOO wish I was!
But, Mommy duties trump traveling. Why do they always pack in so many school events the 3 days before a holiday? :P

Mrs Furious said...

Staci,
LOL Oakland. You never go down to Somerset?! I don't know why I say that... I never went there either ;)

That's too bad. This summer when I drive up with the girls on our way Up North we'll definitely stop in and meet you!

Mrs Furious said...

Andrea,
I hope you win too :)

Oy this is going to be hard for me... I really do want everyone to win.
I'm going to video the name drawing so you'll all know it was legit!!!!

Jennifer said...

Would love some Furious cheer. Sign me up!

Now to more important things .. I can't see your freaking videos from work anymore?! I don't know why? Is it a different version of something that I don't know about? WHAT THE CRAP?!@ Isn't Mr. F a tech person? Would he happen to know why? I need my Mrs. F videos! lol. I sound kind of stalkerishy ..

Mrs Furious said...

Jennifer,
Hmm nothing on my end changed. Can you watch other YouTube videos? Maybe your office blocked them.

Zoe said...

Hello!! Amazing how we come out of the woodwork for the opportunity of cheer!! I am a reader but dont think I have ever commented...anywho I think you and the fam are awesome and I love to read of your escapades and have even got my husband reading since you and Mr's interactions are sooo much like our own:)

Jennifer said...

BASTARDS! They probly did! bastards ....

megO said...

Sign me up! (Don't Worry - You can ship it to MI, instead of AK if i mean when i win)

Staci said...

LOL! I've never even heard of Somerset! :P

Yeah...I live in the sticks and seems I never leave either. :P

Mostly we head to Midland, Clare or Mt. Pleasant. Have you ever been to any of those cities? I grew up in Midland so I tend to go that way more. :)

I'd love a meet up next summer! Let me know when & where! :)


PS~How many comments do you think you'll have today? I'm guessing 73! :P

ness1879 said...

Include me please!

Dana said...

Enter me! I imagine your goody box will be delightful! :)

Out of Hand said...

I'll take one of those please...or I'll take half of Kiki's if she wins! Sucka!

Elizabeth said...

Staci, My dad grew up in Midland. Do you know any Mosses? (my grandmother taught Kindergarden.)

Mrs. F, I would love to be included, or we could just add eachother onto our family X-mas lists? I know we don't generally give amongst the cousins, but we could do simple, cheap, home made and fun, if it adds to your stress disregard this message!

(I've been trying to decide if I should get/make something for your girls, because I'd kinda like to, but I don't want to a)make you feel bad if you weren't planning to get me anything and b) add to the clutter you're so valiently struggling against!)

Ok, now I'm understanding the Christmas stress! I LOVE finding/choosing/making and recieving presents, but it does come with so much "should I? What would they like? blah blah blah!"

Anyway, you'll be back in MI for X-mas right? Or not because you're there for Thanksgiving? Tell me what you think!

Elizabeth said...

Sheesh!
I always write a novel don't I?

Mrs Furious said...

Staci,
Yeah I drive up through Midland and Clare on my way!
I have no idea. I've got several hundred readers just most are lurkers... so you never know! I hope not that many or I'm going to be spending all day writing out the slips for the kids to draw! ;)


Elizabeth,
email me! I was planning to send you one anyway. I need your info. Also NO we aren't going back for Xmas... it's too much on my plate right now.

Tiffani

Mrs Furious said...

Youngs Life,
" Are you including nutritional facts?"
I've thought of it ;)


Tiffani,
fascinating! Where are you taking that?


And to all the long time listeners first time callers... having people de-lurk has been a lot of fun for me... I should have given stuff away a long time ago ;)


Lindalou,
" i could win a furious trivia contest!!"
I have to say that cracked me up!

angie said...

Mary Poppins said...

i'm throwing my name in for 2 reasons:
1. you specifically said we could enter even if we know you know you.
and
2. i couldn't get enough of those butter cookies you made last year. i've learned to say yes to all furious baked goods.
