guys, i’ve been busy! i promise i’ve got a great flashback friday post going up later today, though. you have my word.
in the meantime, let’s keep this giveaway extravaganza going!
first, the winner of the three sisters cereal is #37:
congrats, katy! please email me you address ASAP so i can get your coupons out to you. thanks for entering, everybody. and i hope you all get what is on your list.
you have seen this gem floating around blog world for about a month now…
the marty’s blogger babes calendar was put together by the amazing deb (aka smoothie girl) of smoothie girl eats too. her dad, marty, used to always say that deb’s blogger friends could be in a calendar because we are all so smokin’ hot (i am flattered). well, deb decided to make her father’s calendar idea a reality and the blogger babes calendar was made. it is a collaboration of 14 food & fitness related pinup photos of 14 fun bloggers, myself included.
i can’t help but quote, once again, deb’s explanation of the calendar. i love the way she explains the whole thing:
The idea for this calendar stemmed from a running joke that my Dad used to make. He always said that my blogging friends were pretty enough to be calendar girls. Each time I had a ‘meet up’ with a new girl, he would ask “So another one for the calendar?” The answer was always “yes.” And we giggled at the thought of a blogger calendar.
It wasn’t until he was dying of lymphoma in April 2010 that I had the idea to turn his joke into a reality. Working together on this project was a fun distraction for him in his last weeks of life. He helped to choose all of the girls and his favorite photographs as well. The day before he died, he chose the final photo.
here is a glimpse into the calendar:
december 2010 is deb & her dad, marty, and a great explanation of the whole calendar shenanigan.
and the calendar girls~
for more information about the calendar and for links to each calendar girl’s blog, you can check out deb’s post here.
although marty has passed away, there are several people suffering from lymphoma cancer. proceeds from this calendar will be dollars donated for lymphoma research.
i purchased a number of calendars myself, planning to give a few away to my readers. but, if you don’t win, i encourage you to purchase a calendar from deb and help support the cause. it would mean a lot to me and i know it would mean a lot to her. click here to purchase a calendar, only $15!
onto the giveaway! i am giving away not one, not two, but THREE marty’s blogger babes calendars. i really want to get the word out about the calendar and raise more $$$ for cancer research, so the giveaway entry requirements are all about spreading the word.
