We’re kicking off this weekend with not one but two fun chances to win something!

{Now that’s my kind of party!}

First up…have you wagered a guess yet about the twins’ arrival time and my labor length?

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check out yesterday’s post and be sure to leave me a comment with your best educated (or not) guess.

Whenever they do come, my guesser with the closest time/length will be getting a $10 Walmart gift card in the mail.

Is it the world’s most glamorous prize?

Um, no.

But, since when is labor and delivery glamorous?

So…go guess!

And then if you win, you can buy yourself a package of diapers (or nail polish…whichever).

And next up, I have something a wee bit more impressive in the glamour department.

Have you heard of NOVICA?

It’s a fair trade artisan store online that offers everything from jewelry to home décor (and most things in between!).

And you, my dear readers, are getting a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to purchase anything your little heart desires from their site!

Man, do I love free money.

I doubt you’ll mind too much either, right?

Especially when you could get this gorgeous lotus necklace:


or this pair of pretty vases:


or this cute tote:


for zero money out-of-pocket for you.

Just fill out the quick and easy Rafflecopter form below, and cross your fingers that you get your chance to browse their impressive selection of gifts, home décor, and—my fave—jewelry bling….for FREE!
