a bittersweet ending.

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

I have something to confess and it simply cannot wait until my next 'confessions' post {or 'obsessions' post for that matter}; I, Sara Knol, love winning. Call me competitive - you wouldn't be the first - but if the "winner" title is up for grabs, I wanna be the grabber. There's something super exhilarating about taking the first place finish; who's with me?

I especially love winning FREE stuff. This probably doesn't come as too big a surprise considering how many contests I've entered this year (and how many I've won, BOO-YA!). 

Perhaps the only thing better than winning giveaways, is hosting them #truth and that my friends is what I plan to do the entire month of November.

As you know my babymoon is coming to a bittersweet end and to celebrate/commiserate I've got six super sweet giveaways lined up...
It's no secret that I spend an undisclosed amount of time online shopping {a nap-time hobby that will quickly be coming to an end}.  Every so often I'll hit the 'check out' button and on even fewer occasions I've even dropped the "I'm a blogger" bomb in hopes of scoring a discount or some free swag for my faithful followers (being YOU).

Why am I telling you all this? Because I'm all about full monty disclosure. It's important to me that you know how these giveaways end up on my blog and ultimately in your lucky hands.

One of the perks of being on the Top 25 Canadian Mom Blogs list - thanks again for voting! - is getting emails from various PR companies asking if I'm interested in 'partnering' on features, giveaways, product reviews, telephone interviews, etc. 

I especially love the emails that spell my name wrong or want to know if I have any parenting questions for Chelsea from MTV's "Teen Mom" {this 100% happened, just ask Sarah}.

Aside from a really awesome photography related opportunity {coming soon to a post near you} and the Dairyland feature, I've yet to come across any offer good enough for my savvy 'Saige Wisdom' fans. So guess what? I took matters into my own hands and started making the offers instead. 

I still can't believe all the ahhh-mazing swag I scored for my month of giftaways! All the stores are truly awesome and I've either purchased something from them or plan to. Are you excited? cause I sure AM!!! Be prepared to have your mind blown - you'll be a Saige Wisdom winner yet ;)




How do I feel about going back to work? ready, nervous, sad, conflicted, relieved, excited, all of the above.

So exciting! I'm sure you are pretty bummed about going back to work, but maybe a little excited...?? I can't wait for this giveaway to be in full swing! My button isn't working for me though... ^^

What is your line of work? I went back to working full time after being at home for 18 years! I did work as a teacher-on-call for the past 6 years but only worked one or two days per week. NOW I am every day in my own class - shocking to the system!

You managed to collect some great swag!

Six giveaways in one month is insane! I hope I win! I also hope that things go well, when you head back to work. Good luck!

Sarah said...

I'm going back (part time) in November too, definitely mixed feelings for me too.
