Way to go to themomjen! Target gift cards rock!

I love your designs and wish my children were still tiny. Maybe when I become a grandmother- I'd love a chance to win a Wii. I'll RT and Tweet about you as often as possible. The post on Max's day is and photos are darling!

BTW- whenever I go to post a comment here I am asked to type the characters you see in the picture above however there are never any words unless I type in the words Visual verification and then after entering UN and PW and hitting the Publish your comment button it then comes back with the words to enter. Just an FYI- It does not deter me from posting comments but maybe this could be fixed. :)

Lolli said...

Congrats to Mom Jen! I am so jealous!! As far as what I'd do with $100....I'd probably blow it all on new music. I can't help myself. I might throw in a new shirt for me, too.

PS--I follow you on your blog and twitter. I would love a Wii, too!!

Kadi said...

Congrats Jen! Can't wait for the next contest!

My dream prize would be a spa day, complete with limo transportation to and from!

It has been sooooo long since I've had a day to just myself.

Cindy said...

Hmmmm, spa day - that is a great IDEA!

Erin said...

WOW that's a lot of gift cards! You are so SWEET Cindy! Congrats to the winners!

Of course I love the Ooh La La Mama gift cards as a prize!

I also love the target gift cards as prizes! Everybody needs stuff from target.

The Wii Fit is another great idea so amazing! I want one of those. Our best friend bought us a Wii for Christmas but so far we only have the Wii sports that came with it.

Another suggestion I really want to do with the Wii is the Dance Dance Revolution Hottest Party 2 Game & Dance Pad Bundle for Wii. I looked at it in target yesterday. I played Dance Dance Revolution in the arcade as a teenager and in college and then Daves got it for my Playstation in 2002. I've played it every day almost (except my pregnancy)and its really my favorite way to exercise. Easy and fun way to loose those post-pregnancy pounds! I've been so excited to try out the Wii version for some time!

Dave says to tell you that his favorite prizes would either be a new car, a target gift card or an ipod touch. LOL!

Thank you for being so Awesome! <3 Erin

The Mom said...

I love gift cards to Target, it was perfect! Thanks again! I'm not into Wii fit only because we don't have a Wii...but there's an idea! Or gc's to Lowe's Home Depot, Walmart, all practical in my book! ;)

Faith said...

You know I am biased and I want to win OLLM gift cards. I sent my friend one for her newborn little girl. I am still waiting to see if the size 6 will fit my daughter and if it does, you can better believe I will buy more.

I think a gift card for free gas would be nice with the prices going back up. Gift cards to restaurants are good as well because the whole family can go out.

CelticBuffy said...

Congrats Jenn!

Being the Target fan(atic) that I am, I'll happy enter for Target anything every time!

Mama Bear (Angie) said...

I think your onezies are fun and unique. Very imaginative!

I would LOVE to win an gift card. We are saving up to buy a really GOOD DSLR camera. It may take us awhile, but a gift card sure would help!

Of course, a Target gift card would help me get that bicycle I've been wanting, to help me with my quest to get healthy AND lose weight. :-)

I'm following you on Twitter and on this blog. I'm @ChattyMamaBear on Twitter.


Crystal said...

I want a Wii and a Wii Fit. Of course, a big, fat pile of money or a gift card would be fantabulous, too. Or a nice digital camera.

Ooooohhh... all of the above, lol! You told us to dream big, right?

CanCan said...

A Wii would be amazing; my husband would be ecstatic, which would be good for me!
But MY dream prize would be a "scholarship" to attend BlogHer in July!
I'm a little obsessed with the idea of going!

I like you Fly Spirit Tee, the Man on the Moon tee, the Knights Crest onesie, the Peace Dove onesie, and I'm looking for the red one that looks like it has a monkey on it? I see it on the front page but not in the shop. I lurve monkeys! My son and I are both monkeys.

Amy@Bitchin'WivesClub said...

I would love to win a gift card to So many things to buy, necessaries or of the impulse variety. :)

I would LOVE to win a Wii so I could have a reason to jump on the Wii Fit bandwagon! And Cindy, you know I love ya!!!


Nicole said...

Congrats to The Mom Jen...woo hoo for free prizes! I'm totally with the whole Wii and Wii Fit giveaway...I need that stuff to get my butt movin'! ;) Ha ha. about these prizes...remember, you said to dream big: a laptop or even a new car! Yeah! :) I've been "van" shopping...ugh. Never thought I'd be a "van mom," but I need more room! I'd love to win one of those new VW Routons :) So, I'd be all over that giveaway! Ha ha!

Anyway...your designs are TOO stinkin' all the baby tees. I'm gonna have to place an order. I'm a follower of this blog and your twitter page. Love it all!

Erin said...

I know i already commented, but i had a second in between Eli & I being sick & thought I would check what excitement people were dreaming of.

You know CanCan made a great point above. A scholarship to blogher or blissdom would be amazing.

I want to goto both SO bad! I would walk, talk, wear, scream Ooh La La if I was sponsored!

Awesome Idea! <3


Mom Tips said...

Cindy, I love the vintage dresses on your site! Too bad they only come in kids' sizes.

Following you on twitter as ImAHotMom and here on your blog as Cherrie Bautista. Will be tweeting about this contest too for the extra points :-)

I hope I win --- I would love to go on an all expense paid trip to BlissDom '09 (airfare, hotel, conference, and meals). Gee, wouldn't that be awesome? You said dream big, right?

Stay hot!

Mindi said...

Hey Cindy! Love your blog almost as much as your tweets! I follow you on Twitter as Typingfool, but I'm Mindi here. Prizes? Prizes? Anything is great - Amazon gift cards are cool - I have a Kindle; and a Wii Fit would be fantastic! Santa brought a Wii for the hubs this Christmas, but I'm always on in either bowling or playing tennis. I need to get in shape in the worst way... And a Wii Fit would be a FUN way! Talk to you later!

Yasmine said...

Congrats JEN!!!

We dont have a Wii yet, so we couldnt use the wii fit.
Amazon gift card like someone mentioned above would be a great idea too! target GC would be great my mom is always there i know she could use that or even a Kroger giftcard.
GiftCards to Sephora or Mac

Since you said dream big im going to really dream BIG! I would really love a RED kitchen Aid Stand Mixer! or ...a laptop=] my computers been slowing down a LOT lately, i wake up in the morninge expecting it to be

Tina said...

I know I can't be the only one that really just likes stuff for free!! LOL..

I absolutely LOVE the Flower Charcoal Dress that you have.. I'm trying to take my daughters G&G into getting it for her for her birthday.. I need to teach her how to say.. "Ooh La La!"

Kool Roomz said...

I'm going to sound like a broken record here, but...a Wii Fit would be awesome. Then maybe I could get my butt in shape like all of the other hot Twitter moms. OR an ITunes gift card to use on a bunch of cool songs for my Ipod.

BTW, I am lovin the Punk Rock Diva, Flower Charcoal, Bingo Club Pink, Scribble Love & New Love 2 dresses! Can't decided which one to get my daughter Brooklyn for her 3rd b-day next month.

Mommy Instincts said...

Hey Cindy!

So I racked my brain, to figure out what the best prize for ME would be. And if I were to have my pick, I would choose to win the BPA Free Ameda Purely Yours Breast Pump with Backpack from Mother's Boutique ( With the birth of Lily QUICKLY approaching, I am down to the wire on what is left that we need to get. And besides the breastpump and the Cloth Diapers I would like to use for her(, we are pretty much set!

Love chatting with ya!

Mommy Instincts said...

I totally just twittered about your contest!!!!


Jingle said...

I think that the gift cards are great prizes! I particularly like the ones to place like Target, Walmart, and other general ones that ANYONE can use! A Wii fit would be a fun prize, but I already have one, so I don't need it! LOL! I already follow you on twitter and I try to tweet your giveaways at least once!

GW said...

Hey there! I saw your Twitter page when you followed me (Gardenwife), so I moseyed on over to your blog. Your onzies and t-shirts are darling with fresh designs! It's great seeing current graphic trends like those instead of cutesy teddy bears!

My hubby and I never chose to have kidlets, but we have plenty of honorary nieces and nephews and more on the way. :)

As for prizes, I would love to see Amazon gift cards. Target's always great, too. Thanks for the opportunity!

GW said...

Kimi267 - what browser are you using? I am using Firefox 3 and the visual verification works fine. It is a known issue, it seems.

Lotta said...

Following you here and on twitter. Mostly cause your special. The free stuff is just a bonus.

Your shirts are so cute they make me wish I had a baby to put them in!

If I won anything it would be either a wii fit to lose weight. Or a gift card to Lane Bryant to deal with the current issue.

Melissa said...

I love your onesies! I'm not a mom, yet, but I plan on dressing my future little one in some of your cool designs! Hubby is a rocker, he's loving your prints too. I'd love to win a gift certificate to a massage or spa day. Target is great too, since I do all my grocery shopping there. Maybe a certificate to Best Buy so I can get new Wii stuff??

I'll be retweeting!

Claire said...

I have been a faithful follower for a while both on your blog and on twitter! I just luv you and all that you do and stand for! Your two boys are so blessed to have a mom like you!!
So you want to know what I would suggest for big giveaways... WOW... More Target gift cards because I am a Targaholic, Walmart gift cards (I could buy food!) A Wii because it is not a need, it is a want and I want a Wii so badly! Best Buy Gift cards would be kick ass, Flip cams, Laptops, digital cameras... you said BIG!
Really Cindy, it is just great that you give to others! I love entering your giveaways and admire you so much!!
Off to tweet for you!!

kimberlycogley said...

I would love a wii fit. Get my tushy into shape!

I now follow you on Twitter (thanks Kadi!)

Abigail said...

Hmmm... A dream prize eh? There are a few voices tugging at my consciousness.

The responsible part says: Get a Wal-Mart/grocery store gift card. Use it to save on food and throw the extra money at debt!

The less-responsible but still-trying side says: A Wii would be great. More cheap entertainment!

The whimsical side says: Ooooh, I like the idea of the spa day. A 90 min massage for me and the hubby! We're both very stressed about finances. And yes, yes, who isn't these days, right? But (start violin music here) we both have chronic health conditions that keep us from working full time. Right now, he's working with the government to figure out what kind of work he can do around his ADD and (very, very, very severe, worst-most-docs-have-seen) eczema. Meanwhile, I have chronic fatigue and do some part-time contract work from home. And we're living on just about $3,000 a month total and paying down debt even so. Hence, lots and lots of stress. So a good, long rub-down would be beyond fabulous!

I REALLY want an iPod touch and my girls REALLY want Nintendo DS Lites so any gift card (like an Amazon one) would be GREAT! Well, if I was the winner that is - LOL! ;)

The Beading Tree said...

AWESOME! I want to win a Nintendo Wii for my daughter, because she sold all of her games & game players to pay for medicine for her dog, because I couldn't afford it. My disability payments just didn't go far enough. :)

Yasmine said...

One of those new Ipod Nanos with all those pretty colors to chose from- ive had my eye on one of those babies!

You seem so generous giving away so much. During times like these-- that is so so kind. I would love to win a Target Card. My family will be moving soon and it would be so helpful. I would use it to by my girls a few new things for their bedrooms.

Look forward to reading more!
