CONTEST CONTEST CONTEST: Desperately Seeking a Following...

Oooooh Yeah... Who Likes Target?!?!?!



Dear Santa,

All I want for Christmas this year is for people to follow my blog. Right now there are only 5. And we all know that 5 is a sad number (SHOUT OUT TO YOU, FAB FIVE! See below for your special offer). 5 reindeer do not a sleigh pull. 5 elves do not some toys make. 5 followers do not a blogger inspire. Therefore, I am enlisting your help. And as back up, I am fully prepared to bribe these fantasy followers into submission. Just in time for the holidays, I will send the lucky winner a $25 gift card to the Target store of their choice! I won't even care if they choose to re-gift said gift card, and claim it as their own thoughtful and lovely idea. Think of the possibilities... an office Christmas party they don't want to shop for, a holiday gathering hostess gift, a kitschy little stocking stuffer, boy oh boy! Thank you in advance for making all my wishes come true, Santa!

I believe,

Jill
