Happy 16,000 likes!! Another milestone that snuck in fast and furious but I’m thrilled to have 1000 new fellow readers in our group.
So let’s have another giveaway. TWO $30 gift cards (I will select two winners who will each get one).
Plus, this time, I will be donating to www.woundedwarriorproject.org. I learned about this organization yesterday during the Super Bowl!
Speaking of the Super Bowl, what was your favorite commercial? Hey! Let’s make that the comment (favorite commercial, OR what you were doing during the Super Bowl). It’s not necessarily “book related” but it IS Facebook related ’cause so many of us “virtually” hung out last night, and it made the Super Bowl that much more fun!
My favorite was the Budweiser Clydesdale horse commercial. Of course (not a big surprise, right?). I mean, who didn’t love that one? It took EVERYTHING I had not to cry during that one, but tear-up, I totally did. And I am sooooo thankful that I had all of you to share that with, and to realize, I wasn’t alone. WE WERE ALL close to tears (or crying together). And then… when we got over it, and “e-snuggled” together, we swooooooned over that gorgeous cowboy. Look at how much fun we had on Facebook last night together (some highlights of the conversation, but it was so much longer. I’m starting to think it was one of our biggest Facebook conversations 😀 ):
Maryse’s Book Blog: awwwwww OMG that Budweiser commercial makes me wanna cry!!!! Soooooooo sweet. Am I a sap or what? By far the best commercial!!
Alice: OMG. Me too!! LOL
Laura: I almost cried
Janice: Loved it!
Gwen: I loved it!
Crystal: I’ve been waiting for that commercial–well worth the wait!!
Kelly: Same here!! LOVED IT!!! Made me tear up
Melanie: Yep! I’m crying too!!!
Dolore: Yeah a few tears fell….
Milagros: Best commercial so far…tear
Michele: Funny – how they make them more risque every year and the one that strikes the deepest cords are the ones that push the emotional buttons. You would think they would ALL figure that out!
Sharon: Oh heck I cried too!!
Maryse’s Book Blog: Did anyone else think that guy was cute? I mean… you know? Once I got over my sadness of missing that horse with him. My “oh he’s cute” was peeping through.
Danielle: It was those dimples!!! Tooooo hot!
Kristen: He was HOT
Maryse’s Book Blog: Yes. Yes. He. Was.
Donya: Cowboy – horse – need I say more?
Gwen: Definitely a cutie!
Sue: Lol! Not a dry eye anywhere!
Jennifer: I have to be honest …..I have no idea what the commercial was about. Too busy checking out the guy lol.
Maryse’s Book Blog: LOL Jennifer!!!! My heart has still not recovered, but they treated us nicely with that cute cowboy!
Amanda: I bawled. I live in STL and my aunt works at AB and she said that they said every woman who saw it in the testrun bawled. She said she saw it 50x at work last week and she still bawled tonight!
Wanna see the commercial? Or wanna see it again? I’m scared, guys. I just KNOW I’m gonna cry again. BUT!!! Maybe we can find out who that cute cowboy is… I’m sure this wasn’t his first rodeo. I mean… commercial. 😉
Oh no!!! That lump in my throat is back and it hurts!!!
So *sniff sniff* – wanna enter to win a gift card?
How to enter for a chance to win a gift card? Just leave a “superbowl related” comment below, even if it’s just to say that you didn’t watch it (and indicate whether you would prefer the Nook or Kindle gift card), and tomorrow by 11pm EST (02/05/2013), I will randomly select TWO winners (each one will win a $30 gift card). The winners will be contacted and once I receive a response back confirming the email address, the $30 gift card will be sent to the email address provided (make sure it’s valid!!).
NOTE: The winners will have 48 hours to respond to the winning email notification. If no response is received, I will randomly select another winner. Make sure to check your email, so you do not loose your chance. This is open to anyone that can receive an emailed giftcard from either of these two companies.
