Contest Time!

Swistle had the fantastic idea of organizing a whole mess of Pay It Forward Contests.

What? You don't know what a Pay It Forward Contest is? Allow me to explain. It's a contest. If you win, then you hold your own contest and send a prize to your winner. Etc, etc, etc. Not too hard. And also, fun for everyone, because who doesn't like to win things?!

That's what I thought...everyone likes to win things!

So, on to the contest!

To enter, leave a comment on this post by 11:00 CST, on Friday, July 4th. One entry per person, please. The winner will be selected using random.org, and be notified via email and announced in a post on Sunday, July 6th.

Oh, wait - you want to know what you can win in this contest? Well, you are a needy bunch! But I will indulge you anyway. I'm thoughtful like that.

An assortment of notecards and birthday cards:

DSC_0180

Cute post it notes:

*please do not hold the quality of any of these photos against me - it's 2:30 am and I will take better photos when I am not half asleep*

And some other surprise things too -- it will make for a fun little prize, I promise!

So, enter away! And, if you are so inclined, tell me your favorite guilty pleasure to watch on tv.

Go ahead, don't be shy -- there's no judgement here. Seriously, there isn't - I watch Dr. 90210. And if that doesn't assure you that I won't judge you and your tv watching habits, then I don't know what will.

*Comments are now closed. Winner to be announce soon!*

I'm leaving a comment to say what a great contest idea. But I hope I don't win because I don't have time for it now. We'll see if I have to make time after all...

Shear Genius.

I can't believe I just admitted to that.

Karly said...

Cute note cards! And I'm currently addicted to Grey's Anatomy. I'm not ashamed about the show, just the amount of time I've spent watching it to catch up.

skiplovey said...

Those cards are so cute.

hangel said...

Intervention. I LOVE that show...get sucked in everytime.

Mimi said...

Best Week Ever on VH1.

Alice said...

lordy, which of my shows ISN'T a guilty pleasure..? it's a toss up between beauty and the geek, america's next top model, probably :-)

parkingathome said...

I could watch 18 hours of Dirty Jobs in a ROW

Saly said...

I love those cards! I really enjoy Deliver Me on Discovery Health, and also Jon and Kate Plus 8

Shannon said...

Next Food Network Star

Smiling Mama said...

miz said...

I love it!!

Hillary said...

I watch the Hills. And feel so guilty and lame for doing so :)

Whimsy said...

The Bachelorette - my husband went to high school with one of the guys so we started watching. And um, we have continued to watch.

Sara said...

Army Wives!

Fiona Picklebottom said...

Okay, I had never watched these shows before, but last night I watched Gene Simmons Family Jewels and then, as if trying to top my own stupidity, I found myself glued to The Two Coreys. A&E, where do you come up with your show ideas?

Daycare Girl said...

Most of my tv is guilty pleasures, I'm afraid. And I don't even watch it live- right now I'm getting all of Veronica Mars from netflix.

I watch The Mole, too, but I'm not sure if I feel guilty about it or not.

Bikini said...

ANTM, any cycle. Especially if there is a marathon on MTV.

Lorraine T. said...

I totally love reality shows...oh! And Top Gear on BBC...a total "guy" show, but I love it.

Eleanor Q. said...

I love Dr. 90210! And the Hills, Jon and Kate plus 8 and the Girls next door.

By the way, you are giving away awesome prizes!

Kelsey said...

I LOVE that kind of stuff, it is actually similar to my pay it forward loot, or my theoretical loot which has yet to be purchased.

My guiltiest pleasure is America's Next Top Model, but it's not the only one!

nicole said...

I love fun paper products. My guilty pleasure would be watching Made and True Life on MTV.

Emily said...

The Girls Next Door.

And what cute stuff you are giving away!!!

edbteach said...

The cards are beautiful!

I, too, am guilty of watching Dr. 90210.

My guilty pleasure is the AMOUNT of TV I watch - way too much. Thanks to TIVO I skip most of the commercials.

Elizabeth

Brooke said...

Cute cards...I am totally in!!

Michelle said...

So so cute!

I'm actually currently watching Melrose Place since I never watched it growing up. Sad, I know.

Barb @ getupandplay said...

I have too many guilty TV pleasures. Um, probably the E channel- pretty much everything on it is like dessert TV.

Paige said...

Way cute cards and stuff. I'd love to enter.

Guilty pleasure? Hmmmm. Probably chocolate and desperate housewives on tv.

Anonymous said...

Disney channel...Hannah Montana and all those shows...maybe 'cause I'm a teacher I do and can relate to my studens on some level lol...

Beth said...

I love Design Star. Silly, but fun.

Erica said...

Inked on A&E

caleyadams said...

The Hills. I am hanging my head in shame now...

Misty said...

My guilt is that I don't watch TV. Those conversations around the water cooler about The Office or The Daily Show? What about the ones discussing Grey's Anatomy?

I can't participate. Who has time to watch TV? (Don't worry, my house is still a wreck.)

Not Your Aunt Bea said...

Um...just one? I LOVE Project Runway the best (new season starts soon!), but also watch ANTM, 30 Days, My Redneck Wedding...and I need to get a life at this point, right?

Manager Mom said...

Project Runway, baby!

Amanda said...

Right now, Sex and the City on DVD. I don't watch many shows while they are on tv because I hate the commercials.

Danielle-lee said...

My real guilty pleasure on TV is Girls Next Door. I can't help it! I'm so jealous of their bodies and their overall lack of responsibility in life. Jeez. And their nice cars. And the nice place they live in. And their boobs. Did I just type that?

Hallie said...

I would have to say Biggest Loser and Jon & Kate Plus 8.

clueless but hopeful mama said...

Oh man. I was OBSESSED with Rock of Love 2 with Bret Michaels. Once the UPS guy delivered something while I was watching it and you could see his revulsion all over his face!

carrie said...

Oh I love this idea! I'm glad you're doing it, I'm in! I would love to get my hands on those cards, too!

My guilty pleasure right now is watching all the back seasons of Weeds. We have never had Showtime, so I just netflixed the first three seasons. I love the show!

NotAMeanGirl said...

Guilty TV Pleasure? Project Runway

Janice said...

Okay, some of those shows are GREAT! Hmmm. what does that say about me...guilty, guilty, guilty, I hang my head in shame, Big Brother.

Anna said...

Cute cards! I can't think of any tv shows, though. I am in Korea and the TV is not so hot.

Emblita said...

Oooh nice stuff!

I secretly love ANTM- Tyra gets crazier with every season... and the crazier they get the more I love it!

Missy said...

They're so cute! I'm ridiculously into One Tree Hill. And now I'm very embarrassed.

niobe said...

HGTV. But it's really the only thing I watch (except for French-language game shows).

Becky & Ryan said...

I can't watch the new one (we don't get that channel), but a few years ago I watched the original Paradise Hotel and I LOVED it.

What an embarrassing way to introduce myself to a new blogger. LOL. Hello! I'm Becky and I love lame TV.

Stacy said...

Well, all of the CSI's, of course! Even CSI Miami. ;)

I'm sure I can rustle up something if I win. :)

notthelifeiordered said...

I am a sucker for cute notecards and postits! :) Found you through Swistle (and this is a great way to find new blogs! Yay! Go enter my contest too)

Liz said...

Reruns of Dawson's Creek.

Libby said...

I'm glad to see a couple other people mentioned the same horrible shows on VH1 that I watch. I get a little too excited about them, I think. When is the next Celebrity Fit Club coming on?? I am also watching Celebrity Circus. (Sorry.) Did you know there is a show starting soon called "I Love Money" with all of the crazy people from many of the VH1 shows competing for...money? The promo showing who they are and what they've been up to was...well, I can't wait.

may said...

Fun paper products are the best!

"Legally Blonde: The Search for Elle Woods"

"I Love The..." on VH1

"Made" on MTV

Gosh, I sound like a loser.

Christina, Steve, Clara and Elena said...

Oh, I'm with Liz. Somehow the Dawson's Creek reruns are seriously addictive.

Kristi said...

Beautiful Cards!

I'd have to say...Greys Anatomy.

ya ya's mom said...

wow, cute cards! my guilty pleasure is The Girls Nextdoor

Ginny said...

I watch a lot of tv, but my guilty pleasure would be Big Brother!

Mommy Daisy said...

Right now my guilty pleasure is summer reality shows. "So You Think You Can Dance" is on top right now, but that's only because "Big Brother" hasn't started yet. ;)

Heather D said...

Anything with Gordon Ramsay in it!

Laura said...

so help me, I'm watching the Bachelorette.
