Valentine's Giveaway

To enter this, go to

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 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.)

  3. I would love flowers and chocolate (think Godiva) for Valentine's Day. Actually I just love spending time with my family having a nice meal.

    I think that's 2 pts for me.

  4. I would love a night with my J with no interuptions/no responsibilities/did i mention having our home to ourselves (sister moved in a while back)

    Love this giveaway idea.

    I hope to NOT be getting the shaft, and hope to only get showered with love. (gag)


  5. Great giveaway. Don't enter me, but I love the idea and love Social Climbers and just wanted to tell you that this was a great idea. I get the shaft because the "flowers in a box" commercial from the Super Bowl could have been written about me!
