Holiday Shopping Season Contest

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

I have to say that it’s been a good 2011 here in Cyclin’ Missy world. I have a job that I enjoy, and the hubby found a great new job this summer after being laid off at the beginning of the year. I got to participate in several muddy running adventures. I got to do some mountain biking. I completed my first marathon. I have great family and friends that share these joyous times with me. And I am lucky enough to be able to go out and buy new running shoes, plan a vacation to Florida, and give a couple Christmas gifts to my hubby.

Since I have so much to be thankful for already, I thought that I’d pass on some of the love to you out there. Wayfair is working with me again this year (you may remember them as CSN Stores) to reward the winner of a contest.

Thus, introducing the Holiday Shopping Season Contest!

The winning contestant may choose an item of up to $65 in value from Wayfair.com to get yourself something that you didn’t put on your wish list yet or to get a gift for someone special just in time for the holidays. To give or to receive…it’s up to you how you spend that $65!

Maybe you want to give your cat an automatic feeder for while you’re gone on vacation. Maybe you’re an active new mom or dad, and you want one of those cool jogging strollers. Maybe you need some hot boots like these. Browse the site, pick out your prize, and then enter the contest!

Here’s the deal:

  1. To enter, send me an email telling me about something that you’re thankful for in the year 2011. It can be brief, but give me the story. Be sure to include a basic bio about yourself. Include a photo/drawing to illustrate your story, too, if possible.
  2. The contest is open to US and Canadian residents only. (Sorry overseas readers!)
  3. Entries will be accepted through November 30, 2011 at 11:59pm EST. I will put the name of each entrant in a hat and choose one at random.
  4. I will announce the winner by December 2, 2011. Then, our lovely, lovely Wayfair rep will contact you by email, and she will get your $65 item of choice shipped out to you.

Have fun and good luck!


  1. Such a cool idea for a contest! I'll have to write my entry up later.

  2. Agreed, this is a great idea for a contest! I would enter but this year has already been amazing to me/us/the blog, so I hope it goes to someone that really needs it!

  3. Beer, aww, that's sweet! But remember, you could use it to get someone a gift, too...
