So maybe you’ve heard by now that my bathtub crayon drawings all over my bathroom sink won me $1000.


Well, the bathtub crayon drawings all over my sink won me $1000.

Proof that parking your kid in front of a movie for an hour, drawing all over your sink and taking pictures of it can be worthwhile.

The Caulk Judges even gave me a perfect 10. (Go ahead, take the L out of caulk and giggle furiously like Heather did when I told her.)

What does a $1000 mean in our house? So far it means golf clubs for Cody and the longest damn massage at the swankiest spa in San Francisco I can find.

I’d say it meant new clothes but since I won a $250 shopping spree at TJ Maxx last month, my wardrobe is pretty much taken care of.

What’s that? Sleeping Jellybeans? OH! Seething jealousy! Yes, I totally understand. I’m a little jealous of myself. Believe me, I’m just waiting for a piano to fall on my head or worms to start spurting out of my toes.

I’m sure blogher is all “Can one person BE so lucky?” And I say unto you-YEAH THEY CAN.

In an effort to pay it forward I will be having a little (okay, kinda huge) giveaway/contest of my own here by the end of the week. It will be sweet. You will totally want to enter.

Best news? I won’t be able to.


  1. I have a friend who is really lucky like you. If she enters a contest I don’t bother.

    I reviewed the sink/caulk post and I agree with the judges. You are a 10 in more ways than one. 😉

    Love your blog!

  2. Seriously? I’ve never won anything. Ever. You are amazing. The judges who chose you to win $1000 were right now. I thoroughly enjoyed your drawings. You rock.

  3. Congratulations!

    Wow, you are on a roll. Want to accompany me to Vegas?

    Adria Shas last blog post..We are out of the Induction phase!

  4. Whoa congrats! You are on a lucky streak.

  5. I knew the minute I saw your entry that you were going to win. It was very clever. I couldn’t imagine how someone would top it.

    erins last blog post..alone.

  8. I can’t wait to enter. I don’t think I have ever won…anything…that being said, I better not be disqualified because I am your BFF. That being said, I love that you won $1000 and even though I am jealous…I will say that you earned every damn penny.

  10. It took me a second to get the ‘take the L out of caulk’ joke, but when I did, I giggled furiously. =D

    Frozen Stars last blog post..Shouldn’t I be working?

  11. Congrats!

    My husband is like you; he often seems to win random contests… Me, on the other hand…

    Zs last blog post..shhhhhhh…

  12. what you failed to mention was that it was not really luck at all… had to be gigantically witty to win the loot. For the most part, witty I am not. That’s why you won….


    DesignHER Mommas last blog post..Wordless Wednesday – Bucketheads

  13. That is some sweet loot! Congratulations.

  14. WOW! Congrats!

  15. I told you that you would win. And I’m not so sure that you should say luck because really it’s your talent that allowed you to win.

    I want Wendy’s.

    Annas last blog post..So I Wish I Could Still Dance

  16. awe.some.

  17. What?! ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS?! Dude…

    Olivias last blog post..It’s over.

  18. I admit I liked the crayon drawings. And I thought, if she wins, she will suck. But she will be all cool too.

    And uh….TJMaxx? For sure that’s not fair. I won fruit roll ups. I think Karma is about to make it’s move.

    (I’ll switch you the roll-ups?)

  19. you’re like that woman in the movie that julianne moore was in, the woman who entered ad slogan contests and won all the time, you know what i’m talking about? true story, too. and a good movie.

    and congrats. i’d love a little extra dough.

  20. Frickin’ Awesome.

    I read you every day and you’re number one in my book. That honor doesn’t come with many gift cards, but it’s the thought that counts… (and the money!) 🙂

    Reeses last blog post..And on the 23rd Day, It Rained.

  21. That is awesome! I’m sure there are lots of great things that you can do with the money.

    Mommy Daisys last blog post..How do you like your pizza?

  22. Congrats! I’m sure you’ll put that money to good use.

    I wanted to enter that contest, but then I saw your entry and decided there was no way I could top that.

    Christinas last blog post..Give Me Your Best Frugal Living Tips, O Wise Readers

  23. I have been entering contests for a long time and won nothing, nada, zip. You just must be a very lucky person!

  24. I was in a room with FOUR women where they were drawing for a laptop and then for some software and I didn’t even win then. Dayum.

    Jen Ms last blog post..Chaos: I Can’t Quit You

  25. I really enjoyed the **** ooops caulk post myself. At first I thought they were paying you to shamelessly plug the product but now I know the reason Hoooray for you!

    Ashleys last blog post..Just Call Me Fatty

  26. Wow. A THOUSAND dollars. There are so many things I can think to do with that . . .
    You deserved it.

    EMamas last blog post..Last Trip Ever

  27. YAY Casey that is awesome!!!

    eagerly awaiting your contest now. 🙂

    Britts last blog post..up to dates and such

  28. You totally need to rush out and buy a lottery ticket, stat.

    In the Trenches of Mommyhoods last blog post..The Broken Camera Story

  29. Agreed on the lottery ticket. 🙂

    I enter a lot of contests. So far, I have won two. In my entire life. They were both from Parents magazine – one was a lemonade stand that I received in OCTOBER that asked me to donate all the kids’ proceeds to charity (which I will totally do if it ever comes out of the attic). The other one was from Goodyblog where I won a kids’ eco-T. But they only had baby sizes, so I gave it to my SIL.

    Even when I AM lucky, it still sucks. 😉

    Congrats on your wins, though, that’s awesome!

  30. Congratulations!

    I went back and read your caulking post. Brilliant. You’re seriously creative.

    Have a great time spending your winnings!!

  32. Um, so yea, I’m thinking you suck. Hard core. No really, congrats! Looking forward to the giveaway.

  33. You need to go buy some lottery tickets or something, quick! You’re so lucky!!!

    I want to win things. I did win a cute bag recently and some books, but nothing on your scale. wow.

    Can’t wait to see your giveaway…

  36. Conrats….though if you really want to giggle about caulk, take this quote from my husband as he was finishing up fixing the leaky window in our soon-to-be nursery:

    “I’m going to head down stairs, whip my caulk out, and have some fun!”

    Saras last blog post..In Limbo…

  37. You should totally buy up some of that caulk and give it out as party favors…or whatever. Or better yet…take it to San Francisco to give to all your bloggin’ pals. You owe it to that caulk company….or should I say they owe it to you!

  38. Jeez. I never win ANYTHING. Except for once I won a free massage from the pervy masseuse in my gym’s fitness center. I don’t think being groped under the guise of getting a massage is much of a prize,but I’ll take what I can get.

  39. I think you totally deserved to win! Your post was cute, and so worthy.

    Can’t wait to see what your contest is! I hardly ever even enter contests, but yours? I will, just because you rock.

  40. You totally deserved that $1000…that was an awesome creation! Congrats!
    Ooo, I can’t wait to see your contest. I could stand to win something. I just started my own weight loss contest…All I’ll win there is my same old wardrobe I currently can’t get into. 🙂

    Toast 2 Moms last blog post..Weigh In Wednesdays

  41. I’m convinced you’re the only lucky one out there. I enter every one I see, but to no avail. Never have won a blog contest.
