Because I love y'all giveaway


Valentine's is my least favorite holiday. And technically if every thing's not closed, it's not really a holiday. Retro is not big on celebrating V Day. Therefore, it stinks!

He won't take me out because all the restaurants are busy. But I usually get some kind of gift/cash, (but never flowers) due to an incident that happened while we were dating...


One year at college, all my roommates got something for V Day except me. Not even a visit (it was on like a Wednesday or something & I was going home that weekend). Retro's excuse was that nobody answered the phone at the florist. On Valentine's Day? Imagine that! Did you think they might be a little busy? After much hell raising on my part, I received my gift...a large sum of money with a post-it attached that said "No more CRYBABY S#*T!

And that, my friends, was before Post-Its were cool.

So in honor of all my friends who may get the shaft this year, I am hosting a fabulous giveaway with tons of great prizes!


Beth Dunn has graciously donated one of her books-


Tammy at Milk and Cookeez has offered up these yummies-

Chocolate Cookie Dough, Cocoa Butter, Sugar Scrub


And her Valentine Candy Soaps (that I couldn't find on her website, but doesn't mean it's not there)!


Also my new friend, Steven at iCaughtCupid (who is also the brainchild behind CatchaCharacter.com) has offered up 10 coupon codes!

This one will be on the computer (because if I print it out, Sass will know something because I never print pictures!) on Valentine's morning along with all their goodies (well that'll be in the living room). Don't act surprised that the Semi-Slacker kids get visited by cupid. Y'all know they are spoiled to the hilt!



Here's another example of iCaughtCupid.


Okay. So we've got all these prizes, so I'm picking lots of winners!

Here's how to win:

1. Leave a comment about what you want for Valentine's Day. (I want some black cowboy boots & dinner at Natalia's, by the way.)
2. Visit these cool sponsors. 1 point each.
3. Become a fan of Confessions of a Semi-Slacker Mom on FB.
4. Post about this giveaway.
5. Tweet it!
6. Tell me why you are getting the shaft = 5 points
7. Follow me everywhere!
It will be so cool if you put the number of points I owe you on your comment!
I will pick a winner next Thursday, February 11th.
Good luck & play on Bloggers! (That's what the lottery guy says on TV, except he says GA instead of bloggers.)

I want a weekend getaway to St Augustine - and I'm getting it! WOOHOO Sorry I'm just so freaking excited.

DysFUNctional Mom said...

Tweeted it! http://twitter.com/dsfunctionalmom/status/8671950972
That's 2 points.
I would seriously EAT that soap.

pink green & southern said...

That post-it thing? F'in hilarious!

I am getting the shaft b/c Mr. PG&S married his first (CRA-ZEE) wife on V-Day (redneck, I know) and since we all know that didn't work out so well, it isn't really his fav day anymore--HA!

I think I get like 10 points b/c you know I would follow you to the ends of the earth...

Sam said...

I want new boots too. I had really nice nubuck ones, but Honey tried to waterproof them and now they are ordinary brown. My in-laws are visiting on V-Day only becasue they will be with in two hours for a basketball game and they feel obligated to crash at our house. which means I will be waiting on them while they sit in front of my TV, drink non-stop and talk about their fabulous life. GAG!
How about a cruise for bloggers, that would be fun!

Krystyn said...

Hmmm..since we are on a spending freeze, and this is all about what I want...a good pair of jeans would be nice.

Deb said...

-->I would love to receive a year's worth of bi-weekly or even monthly house cleaning coupons. I clean every week but there are some tasks that I don't like and they are easily ignored.

7. I follow you on twitter and your bloggie!

Shoo! I think that's all!

Alexis AKA MOM said...

Oh man I would love my husband to get a clue get a babysitter (all by himself not having me do the searching). A night out and maybe even a comedy club (it's been YEARS). Heck I would be happy with a babysitter for a few hours for us to just walk around the mall :) lol

M.L.G. said...

I want my boyfriend to remember it's valentines day and send me something special. Icaughtcupid and Cathacharacter are fabulous! I'm a fan and posting about your giveaway on my blog. I think I'm getting the shaft because it's a long distance relationship and he is a fairly inexperienced boyfriend. I think this means I get 6-7 entries, but all it takes is the right 1 entry to win! Thanks for this fabulous giveaway, and Happy V Day!!

I would love to go to a restaurant that is one of our favorites.
valentine's Day is the anniversary of when I got engaged to my husband and it is also the anniversary of when my husband and I started going together.

suburban prep said...

The Milk and Cookiez site is just fantastic. The soaps look way too good.
Love the Social Climbers.

I am a follower of our blog.

Tracie said...

I want to some chocolate. (1 pt)

Tracie said...

I'm a FB fan. (1 pt)

I follow you here. (1 pt)

I'm getting the shaft because my husband has never, ever in over 16 years bought me one damn thing for Valentine's Day - not even a card. (5 pts but that should be more because he really sucks.)

Total with the other comment = 8 pts (Hope I did that right.)

Jessica Jones said...

i will take anything! I never get anything so really ANYTHING will be nice!

Christy said...

Alright I have thought long and hard about this because I really have no idea what I want for V. Day.....so how do I let Chad know what I want? I want someone else to clean up my vehicle for once, I want someone else to clean this house 1 time! But as a gift, I would love some new earrings and maybe a new bracelet or 2. (1 pt)
I am a fan on FB (1 pt), I also visited the sponsors (3 pts), love the soaps!

I am shafted because we have 4 kids and my husband works alot and also waits until the last minute to do anything. There will be no romantic dinner because the resturaunts are crowded and for real, who is gonna baby-sit 4 kids.
The big shaft is because that is the day Nascar starts up again. My loving husband will spend the day on the couch watching the Daytona 500! We will probable grill steaks for supper to seem special but I will be second in line due to racing!! (5pts)

Total points= 10

i would have loved to be in Orlando with my 3 fav men this w/e but with a herniated disk, the trip is now canceled. I love getting the cards the boys make at school. Actually I love them wanting to give me the cards to oh and ah over them.It makes my day. From the big man, I'd like for him to plan a 'date', haven't used that word in a long time, that includes the boys being taken care of in every capacity from going to someone else's house and all without ANY of my help. I'm not big on the over priced flowers but I have been good not to say anything about it cause I've heard once you give a hint of complaint the flowers stop and I do like the occassional just because I thought of it moments that have become more senior moments than anything. I'd like to have no pain for the the day and my neck/back to get well while I'm using that cookie batter I want to eat stuff. You have an awesome blog. I've found that we have so much more in common than I knew. Good luck with the new boots and dinner.
