I am going to try to buy your love!

Okay... so it worked a little to beg for comments- now I am going to blatantly buy your love- I am not above bribery! I am going to try to beat some blurkers out of the bushes with a little June Cleaver enticement... I am going to give away an apron to one commenter! I love aprons, I love making aprons, I love blogging, and I love getting comments... mix together and you have a
DOMESTIC DIVA GIVEAWAY.
So...here is the recipe-
1. Leave me a comment and I will enter you in the contest. If you don't have a blog or a google account then just leave me an anonymous comment with your name and e-mail address.

2. Give me a shout out link on your blog and I will enter you twice in the contest.

3. Visit me again in about a week...pretend to think I am hilarious and make a comment ( and then pop my bubble and tell me to enter you a third time)


When I contemplated this give-away idea I tried to think of the reasons I was doing it... here is what I came up with- I wanted to bribe a few more people out of the blurking shadows... and I wanted to meet a few new friends in the blogosphere. Kindof goofy...but hey... it is what it is!

OHHHH... I almost forgot I am even going to give the winner the chance to choose what colors the apron is ( so you can match it to your kitchen) You have a voice in the matter...so let me hear you!

P.S. This goes from today until Sunday- June 15th at MIDNIGHT!

Tanja said...

Count me in...anything to look like a domestic diva! I will put it on my blog later today before I head out for vacation. Promise! How exciting!

Michael said...

I hope you aren’t gender discriminatory. I want to win an apron more than you know. I get so tired of running around the kitchen naked while cooking. I also want to see at least one of the aprons that are hanging around in my kitchen get used.
I think your blog is crazy funny and I can’t go a day without reading it. I thought you were taking the summer off with your kids for a few days.
You don’t have to buy my love either though. You need to know that your love lifts me higher than I’ve ever been lifted before.

Tiburon said...

Yessssss!

You don't have to buy my love though. I already heart you. PLEASE put me in the drawing. You will get a shout out and lots of love from here :)

I do want an apron bad!

mary elizabeth said...

if winning an apron means you are buying my love, then go ahead and buy away, baby! :D i love home-made aprons, they are the best!!

heidi said...

Brooke said...

All it took for you to find out I was stalking you is a little bribery - I want an APRON!!! You are one sexy girlfriend with a RAD blog! I want one of those Aprons! I have not played out that theme yet - always looking for new ones to spring on my man!

The P*dunc's said...

Your funny!

I love aprons.

This is my first time here, but maybe I will start blurking you. Oh...that's sounds weird.

simply kris said...

Amy!!!! I make the most horrible mess of myself when I get near the kitchen. I just, this very night, thought out loud, "I would cook more IF I could don an apron." It's meant to be mine!!!! I am going to give you a post AND a link! (you've been on my fave list for-eh-vah)

kristi lee said...

Ooooooh. . . fun!! I found you through Tib's blog. Nice to meet ya!

The Knight Family said...

Hi, my name is Carol – I live in Co. and I am a blog stalker. And I really, really want a cute apron so I am leaving this crazy comment. I have had insomnia for a few months and so I find myself looking at blogs at 2am because there is nothing else to do. I found your blog through my friend Jamie, who is a sister to Collette. When I clicked on your blog you had a picture from Dixie College and I remembered you (I went there too) Here is the story……My maiden name is Dalley and many times when I was there someone would hear my last name and say “Are you related to Kaylor Dalley?” and I would say ”I guess not I don’t know who that is” Anyway one day my roommate said “There is Amy Spilsbury she is engaged to Kaylor Dalley who everyone always asks you about. She also said you used to have long curly hair and had just gotten it cut in a short bob – the next day she got her hair cut the same way so she must really have like it. Anyway, I really am not a weirdo stalker –Although I might think that if I was reading this. I just think your blog is hilarious and is one of my favorites to read. And I have no idea how I can remember this from college sooooo long ago – but I did!!!

Krista said...

Alllright! I saw your aprons on Mindi's blog. So hot! I will let all my peeps know. Thanks!

ann marie said...

I am so excited about this giveaway! I told my husband last night that I NEED a cute apron! What timing! Thanks!

ikkinlala said...

Mindi said...

my little amy, all grown up.....

Patron and Patrona said...

I know all your dirty secrets...

Patron and Patrona said...

P.S. You need to pick me for a couple of reasons:

I worship you and all the bling to bring with you.

I'm a regular reader and contributor to your column.

I need an apron to wear when i'm cooking bacon naked. Those grease burns don't do much for the bare brazilian.

michelle said...

I linked to your blog thru Tammy. I love aprons!!! What a cute idea to have a apron give away! :)

Lesley said...

Hope you and your darling family are doing well! Jen

When I read that you have 15 sets of dishes...I just had to comment! :) What a wonderful problem to have...

...aprons are great too!

Cristin said...

The above anonymous is me (sheesh)!

Omgirl said...

Looks like you got some blurkers out! I have to say that I really need a new apron, and a very cute apron that matches my kitchen just might make my year. (Arianne via Mindi)

Kelly said...

Love the aprons, sent here from Tiburon. Please count me in!

queenoftheclick said...

Your aprons are beautiful so of course I want to win one. I don't know anyone that can sew without a pattern - that's pretty awesome.

Natalie Jane said...

How do you have so many friends to comment?! Are you famous in the blogging world?

Apparently I am not.

Lindsay said...

Ok, Amy. I'm breaking my blog stalking silence. I love reading your blog and get a total kick out of it. You've always cracked me up. You tend to make Leavitt conferences that much more fun!

Your aprons totally rock! The poem adds that much more pizazz to them. So fun and so creative. Buy my love. Send me an apron!

Christy Bassett said...

Those are the foxiest aprons I have ever seen! If I put one of those on to cook, my husband wouldn't know whether I was cooking dinner or trying to heat up the kitchen! They are fabulous!
I hope I win one!

Bagiera said...

I LOVE those aprons!!!!! I would love it, and take care of it the very best, so I should win don't you think???? - M. Ellett

Cole said...

So I really thought I did this already but here it goes again....I already devoted a blurb to you (blurb on my blog...he he) and your adorable aprons! And those are serriously cute aprons that I would be so proud to be the owner of....I'm crossing my fingers and toes right now!

Kathleen W. said...

Julie said...

count me in - I'd love to win one of your aprons!

CanCan said...

I was seriously just shopping online for an apron last night and I didn't find anything I liked.
I like your apron-style!

:)

I read an inspirational post on the Hillbilly Housewife website about how wearing an apron helps you separate the "work" part of your home day from the other parts. I think I need that.

sbonetsue said...

I would love to win an apron and would be forever grateful if you pick me. Thanks for the chance.

whitney said...

I love aprons, even if they are bribes.

Laura said...

ooh la la! this is too fun! love the cute aprons! now that i'm the 97th commentor i don't know how you'll choose your winner. i'll just have to post you on both of my blogs. love having new friends.

Lewis' said...

Hopefully I'm not too late to enter! I would love an apron.... seeing that I'm not much of a cook... maybe a darling apron would motivate me to start cookin!! With a picky (and I mean picky) husband as an eater... maybe I will actually put my heart in it and come up with some fabulous meals for him. I think it might take an apron though!! :) Who knows.. maybe he'll forget he's eating onions or hamburger meat when he sees how cute his wife looks in an amazing apron. What do you think? What a cute idea for a blog!!! So cute!

Sox said...

I came for the apron, but will stay for the updates. Your blog looks fun, and if I can't have an apron can I at least get the pattern. (I really need an apron!) I've decided wearing dough to the zoo has got to stop.

Holly said...

Hi Amy... I'm back leaving another comment, just like you asked. I need to be entered as many times as I can! :)
