fall, y'all giveaway

This is my first attempt at a "give-away." Shannon at Rocks in my Dryer and Bloggy Giveaways.com is hosting another carnival of giveaways. I remember seeing her summer version and not really understanding all of it until it was over and done with. I didn't want to miss the boat this time.

This will be a sticky post and remain at the top of my other posts for this week. Make sure you scroll down to see what else I have to say.

Here's what I'm giving away...


I wanted something that reflected me or my blog. I had a few ideas but settled on this because I love movies and this is not only a current movie (DVD released a few weeks ago), but one of my all-time favorites. I love it so much that I just can't give one away, so... I'm giving away TWO!

Here's a description of the movie: When his wealthy grandfather dies, trust fund baby Jason Stevens anticipates a big inheritance. Instead, his grandfather has devised a crash course on life -- twelve gifts designed to challenge Jason in improbable ways, sending him on a journey of self-discovery and forcing him to determine what is most important in life: money or happiness. This movie is rated PG and is great for all ages. And let me add this; if you don't win this movie, I highly recommend you going out and renting it. You won't be sorry.

All you have to do is comment this post. And if you've seen the movie, comment how much you liked it. I'd love to hear if this movie meant as much to other people as it did me. And even though you've seen the movie, I'll still include you in the drawing =]. Please only enter one comment and I will only be able to accept US and Canadian bloggers because of postage. I will close comments at midnight (mountain time) on Friday, Nov. 2nd. I will then randomly pick two winners and announce those two winners on my Saturday or Sunday post.

Now, you need to click on this link to check out the very loooonng list of other bloggers who are giving something away. There are some really nice give-aways out there. On second thought, don't check out the other give-aways. You'll only reduce my chances of winning.
