It's Giveaway Time!!!

Way back here, I promised to have a giveaway as part of the celebration for my 100th post. Well, I clearly did not get my act together because I am now at post #161!!! SO, that means I just had to make it a little bigger and a little better.

The motivation....
  1. To celebrate some blogging milestones.
  2. To give back after I have enjoyed winning fun prizes on others' blogs.
  3. To share some of the blessings I am privy to while living in "the land of not quite right...but the land of wonderful shopping."
  4. Did I mention this involves shopping?
  5. To find out who is reading my blog. What better way than to give away stuff?!? Seriously, if you have been lurking, I would love to meet you (or if you are someone I know, I would be honored to know you care enough to read about our lives).
  6. To thank all of you who DO read my blog and comment faithfully. You have been such an encouragement to me through your comments and through your own blogs.


Here's how it works...


  1. Leave me a comment on this post (or send me an email, therohals@yahoo.com, to say you have been reading my blog) before June 1st.
  2. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you are not one of my "real life" friends.
  3. This giveaway is open to all...fellow bloggers, friends, family (even you, mom), spouses of friends who read my blog, first time commenters, people who link here from someone else's blog and are potential friends...
  4. I will give away the five prizes below as a minimum (randomly drawn from all commenters or emailers on June 1st).
  5. If I receive comments (or emails) from more than 50 people, I will give away another prize for every 10 after that.
  6. SO, at worst, your odds are 1:10 for winning a prize.
  7. I will do reminder posts occasionally before the 1st so that if you are not a regular reader of my blog but stop in occasionally, you will not miss out on the fun. I will also add a link to this post in my sidebar.
  8. I reserve the right to break the rules and add more prizes at a whim (or after a shopping spree with great finds that I can't resist!).


Here are the prizes...

I am giving away three pashminas (I don't know why, but I just love to say that word!). One with bright colors, one black with multi-colored stripes on the side, and one in fall colors. The baby girl (who WOULD NOT stay off of the pashminas) is not part of the prize.

More detail...
And...I'm giving away two sets of pearl jewelry. Each set comes with a necklace, bracelet, and earrings. You have your choice of white, a light pink (not pictured here), or this dark purplish color.

















Happy Commenting!!!

Yay - those prizes look awesome! And I love that Adeline wouldn't leave the pashminas - she's such a cutie! Anyway, count me in!

Love to read your blog as you know. However, I usually talk to you instead of comment. So count me in. I would really love to have the baby girl most of all. Please, please, please. Give your prizes to others and give me baby girl weekends, etc. Love you all, Mother Nolt

Earen said...

Hey, congrats on your 161st post! :-) Great prizes and I would loved to be one of the contestants! I've enjoyed reading your blog as I'm a recent visitor but have now become a regular! Thanks again!

Kristen said...

So fun Lynn! Of course count me in! I would love to have Adeline too - I think she and Mauryn would be wonderful friends and playmates :o)

krista said...

Whoo hoo!
Count me in! :-)

"I reserve the right to break the rules and add more prizes at a whim (or after a shopping spree with great finds that I can't resist!)."

LOL.

After 161 posts, you can break the rules anytime.

Love your generous giveaways. Enter me in the drawing, please. :-D

First of all, I have always considered you "so together" (much like myself...hahahaha) AND it is nice to know that motherhood has "interrupted" your "togetherness" as well. (said in a loving, laughing, and "in the boat" with you way)

Now, that being said, this is a rockin' and generous giveaway. I have no clue what pashminas are, but I have two girls who would love those things. Oh, and who doesn't love jewlery?

Hoping to win one of these fab prizes.

Janelle said...

Lynn, I am faithful to the Rohal Call! Happy 161st post. What a milestone :)

Great giveaways. How fun!

Tropical Mexican said...

Darn, I was hoping one of the prizes would be the teddy bear t-shirts.ha ha

Count me in

Becoming Me said...

ful prizes. Congrats on the 100th and 161st posts!

Musicaljean said...

Count me in too. I totally enjoy your blog and the prizes look great, even though I have no idea what those pashminas are. I'll have to look them up too like I did those purses I had never heard of, ha,ha! I'm getting such an education here!!

Momma Roar said...

Me! Me! Pick me! ;-)

You are such a generous person Lynn - from these giveaways to taking orders for jerseys - it must be where you are from! :-)

John and Amanda said...

Oooh! Yay! Count me in!! By the way, what in the world are pashminas? They look like large fabric things so I'm guessing the baby/child carriers the Koreans all have, or some kind of shawl?!? This needs to be a blog in itself!

And if you need a shopping buddy for more prizes... call anytime!! :)

joana said...

hey yeah! count me in, i love that adeline is in the pictures. :P what is a pashmina? sorry i'm ignorant. :P happy mother's day to you!

Short Stop said...

OK, so I thought I had commented on here, but alas...motherhood.

What an awesome giveaway! You know I'm in! :)

Congratulations on your first 161! Here's to many, many more!

Love you.

keenbliss said...

Are you sure I can't just borrow the baby girl? After all, I already have the pearls!

Lynn said...

Kristin, you certainly may, when can I expect you to come by to pick her up? :o)

Ruthie said...

You know I read your blog, and you know I need a pashmina or two to add to my collection. Yay! What a fun idea. I'm in!

Kara said...

Everybody loves a giveaway! I hope you find lots of fun people are reading your blog and in this way - you will get a treat too! Hope I win something!!!

Jen said...

Count me in - I'm a faithful reader to your blog! Thanks for inspiring me to start my own!

Amanda said...

Lynn! I'm finally commenting, although you know I always read your blog! Don't worry about counting me in on the raffle. It's much better for those who are stateside to win your exciting gifts!

Heidi said...

Count me in! You know that I LOVE that you started a BLOG. It has made these months go by so much faster!

Mrs. Fix said...

I love your blog and I love pashminas as well. Crossing my fingers here in Maryland -- and when are you coming back to Maryland yourself?

Alana said...

Sign me up, girl! I love your blog!!

Angela said...

Okay, I am here. Count me in!

Grace said...

I finally came for a visit! =) I scrolled down & checked out the pictures from our "girls" weekend! I keep forgetting to ask - what was the name of that game we played?

I'm Tara. said...

I finally remembered to come check you out after your sweet comment on my blog and CHA-CHING!! :) What a great giveaway! Although, I'm personally glad the girl isn't included - I'm struggling enough with my own and one on the way as it is. (Hee hee!) She sure is cute, though!

Looking forward to reading more! I see that you're an OT. I'm an SLP! See - compatible already!!

Christin said...

Hi Lynn! I was just showing Gary your blog. He loves the Korenglish and also wants to know if Patrick has one of the striped shirts..... Thanks for all the fun reads!

Anonymous said...

hello there! this is Lisa and Twila. We are looking at your blog together quick. What a fun idea to give these pretty things away as prizes!!

greg&shara said...

I enjoy your blog so much; you were an inspiration for me to start blogging! It'll be neat for everyone to keep up with each other when we leave Korea, soon for you:) Cool prizes!!!

Christie said...

Okay, well I've got to get in on the action. You've got to keep this blog going when you go back to the US! I wish I could be as dedicated as you!

Krazy Fam said...

OK Lynn, I will bite. Though I want someone other than me to win since I can find all these great things here too. :) But I want you to know that I am reading.....Gretchen

Lynn, I enjoy looking at your blog. Adeline is so cute and growing so fast. It was fun watching your dad race on Saturday. He did well and it was a beautiful day for it. The giveaway prizes look great.
