On Blog Giveaways

I enter a lot of blog giveaways. I'm not usually the kind of person who wins much, and I'm definitely no good with gambling, but blog giveaways are safe: I'll never lose anything by entering them. Because people give away some seriously awesome stuff! Jewelry... handmade goods... gift certificates... lots and lots of wedding related items.

So when I entered this giveaway last week I figured, as usual, I'd see someone else's name posted as the winner. Imagine my surprise when I read this post on the very same blog:

Thanks everyone for entering the Milk Tea giveaway! We loved reading all of your stories…they were so sweet!  The winner of the beautiful, standard wedding dress cake topper is Lauren who was proposed to with a pop-up book and finished off the proposal with hydrocortizone cream! (LOVE it!) Congrats! We will be contacting you soon!

Wait. Lauren? That's my name. Wait! Pop-up book? That's my story! Wait! I WON THE CUTEST STINKING CAKE TOPPER EVERRRRR FROM ENTERING A BLOG GIVEAWAY!!!!! No. kidding. Check it out:

We even get to customize it: lace or no lace on the dress, suit and tie color, hair color, hair accessory and bouquet color. So just a reminder, if you've lost faith in giveaways on blogs, don't, because you never know when you'll randomly win something you really, really want (and had contemplated buying anyway but wanted to make sure all of the important stuff was covered before spending a ridiculous amount of money on something you don't really need, especially when you aren't even sure you'll have a traditional cake that needs a topping accessory.)

BTW, if you're looking for a good wedding blog site, Love and Lavender is one of my faves, so check it out!
