Name Your Christmas Contest

My friend Marie and I were just bantering back and forth and she came up with an fantabulistic idea. And I, being the follower that I am, concur. What this blog-hood needs is a good holiday decorating party, complete with spiked eggnog (GiGi, for you, a nice little spiced cider) and Christmas cookies.

We want to get together. I have amazing blog friends. She does too. So do you. So we need to meet. We want to show off our Christmas cheer, display our decorating savvy with our friends. Yet, sigh, we live in different parts of the country--heck different parts of the world! Our solution? We're going to host a big blog party, show off your blinged-up-for-the-holidays blogs, pictures, you know. The stuff we do to make the season more complicated than it should bememorable. We've got the prizes lined up! Grand prize has been donated and heads up, it's nice. Bling.

In just a few days time, we've pulled it all together--but for one thing. We don't have a name for our contest. So we think it'd even better if you, my friend, Marie's friends, your friends, took a second to vote on the sidebar over to the right. There's a pole with the choices. The voting booths shut down Friday night regardless of any hanging chads or electronic malfunctions. Marie's blog has the pole going on as well. More information will come, and the official decorating contest will begin next Friday! If you do take time to vote, thanks! I still contend blog friends are amongst the best friends around! GiGi, that's your fourth eggnog. I'm counting.

Did you read my "Forewarning" post? Tammy and I just started a tradition with each other that will fit into this contest perfectly!!! I'm thrilled, especially since I won't get to decorate my home this year - So, I'm decorating my blog (my second home)!!!

hey Stacey:

I am curious how many female blog friends you have? How many of them do you expect to join this party?

I am thinking to write about this party on my blog and list the blogs of those who wants to attend the party!

It's like a meme, tagged post or viral link type of promotion. It also looks like an early registration of the party!

How does that sound? Is tomorrow Friday? ;-)

Tammy said...

Misty sent me here. She told me about a contest that would be perfect for us. She was so right! Now I have an excuse to decorate my blog. LOL

Stacey said...

Terence, no more eggnog for you, bud. Tomorrow is Thursday.

Between us, I'm sure we'll have quite a few visitors and it'd be great if you advertise our blog decorating contest. But wait until we have a name for it, Friday night. :)

Thanks for the encouraging comments on the reading. . .Wow! Actually I was sooo nervous and I had prayed before I went up there that it would just be to HIM and no one else. I felt funny being up there since I am such a newby.

So thanks a bunch!!

See ya tonight??

What a wonderful idea. Love your blog and the dedication to your sister's memory -- it just gets me misty thinking about it.

Sharon said...

Oh dear, I wasn't going to decorate the house this year and now there's the pressure to decorate my blog. But for you dear friend I'll do it! Actually I agree that this is a fantabulistic idea! Since I don't like eggnog, spiked or not, I'll pop open a bottle or two of Asti to begin the celebration.

Wait... is this a blog decorating or a house decorating thing where we take pictures of our decorated houses?
I'm confused

then again, I live that way LOL

But either way, I voted in your poll LOL
