A Giveaway! {Closed}

Posted on: Friday, July 27, 2012

Congrats, Rachel! You won! Email me your address! 

Thanks for participating, everyone! :)

I don't know about you, but I love the Olympics! I'm not a big watcher of sports year round, but the Olympics draw me in and make me a fan of just about everything (so glad golf didn't make the cut, though). I love the history of the games- going back to ancient Greece, and how the Olympics bring the world together (however temporary it may be). I remember being a big fan of "the Thorpedo" back in Sydney 2000; the 2004 Athens games inspired me to write my college application essay about the Olympics, and the final hockey match in Vancouver 2010 (USA vs Canada) was simply stunning. I will probably tear up at the opening ceremonies tonight, no lie.
I wanted to do my first ever giveaway this summer; I thought first of doing one for my birthday, but the Olympics is way more fun and a better theme to create a specific giveaway around. If you're an Olympics fan, or even not, I hope you like what I've got for you! Here's what you could win: (one winner gets all)
 (plus a t-shirt not pictured!)

1. London coin purse- to represent the host country.

2. $10 Subway gift card- to eat like a champ, like Michael Phelps or Apolo Anton Ohno in those commercials.  

3. USA 1984 mug

4. 60 Straws in the Olympic ring colors.

5. Gold and Silver nail polish.

6. Candle- representing the Olympic flame (you don't have to keep yours burning, though)

7. T-Shirt size M (on its way to me so it is not pictured above).

Extra Entries (leave a comment for each):

Good luck and thank you for participating!
Enjoy the games!

  1. Yay! I'm so excited for swimming (of course) and gymnastics!

  2. I'm going to go tweet right now!

  3. Definite favorite event is the snowboarding half pipe during the Winter Olympics or the gymnastics during the Summer Olympics. Or swimming... I can't decide which I like better, especially because this summer, a girl from my high school will be swimming for the USA! Woo :)

  4. Favorite event- figure skating. They always look so graceful (I envy that... I can barely skate at all)

    Random fun fact... the first time that I remember watching the Olympics was from a hospital room when I was 8. I thought I was so special to get eat in bed, AND watch tv. Nevermind the fact that I was in the hospital.

  5. I'm a follower (duh!) and my favorite Olympic event is women's gymnastics, hands down. Always has been, always will be. Sooo good.

  6. And, I tweeted:
