My FIRST Contest! *We have a winner*

**Contest closed...thanks for playing!**

I am so excited, my first contest!! I've been wanting to do one, but other than dirty laundry, I haven't had anything to give away!

Putting clothes away, I noticed the Nemo plush sitting in it's original bag at the top of my closet. Last Christmas, I Santa purchased made 2 and delivered them to K from the Disney Store North Pole. I think there was a sale nice Elf giving out 2 for the price love of one.

Anyway, K is pleasantly happy with hers and I'm giving the other away to a lucky reader! It's brand new, measures about 17" long, is super soft, and comes from a smoke-free home. YAY!

How to enter: Post a comment and tell me what your favorite song is and who sings it. I may just add it to my playlist! You can only enter once.

Contest closes at 8pm PST, Sunday July 13. The winner will be chosen by Random.Org and will be announced Monday!

Good Luck! (Lucky Fin)

    i don't know what i'd do w a plush since my girls are 11 & 9 so i don't need to win the contest. i just wanted to submit my fave song at the moment: oxford comma by vampire weekend. of course, you may want to find the version that doesn't have the 'f' word in it. the album doesn't have a parental advisory because it's not really full of words like that. just a couple in a song or two.

    No wait, I love Chocolate by Erin Ivey.

    DAMMIT. NEVER make me list a song I like...I have issues!

  3. Happy Campers said...

    Ohhhh...I just found a song I'm obessed with. Completely off the beaten path song.

    It's called Tera Nam Ek Sahara & it's completely entrancing. Something you'd just "breathe" to. Since you've probably never heard it, I found a link where you can listen for free:

    Oh, I could just listen for hours...

    Before I found this song this morning, my favorite would have been Neil Diamond's Coming To America :)

  4. Janel@Dandelion Dayz said...

    Just one!!!???

    Oh my. I love music.

    hmmm.

    I absolutely cannot pick just one. I picked these on my blog a while back

    I have Three Little Birds by Bob Marley downloaded for my ringtone on my cell phone- that is a huge favorite.

    Come Monday by Jimmy Buffet, Train in Vain by the Clash, Ain't No Sunshine, Show my Your Glory by Third Day, Angel by Aerosmith, You are The Sun by Sara Groves (actually I love this entire CD), Ice Cream by Sarah McLaclan(well, almost anything by her), Beautiful Day by U2.

  5. Gettysburg Mom said...

    Crosby, Stills & Nash- Our House...
    Thanks for a great giveaway- like the rest of America, I have a Nemo obsessed four year old!

    My favorite song changes ALL the time, but right now it's Love Remains the Same by Gavin Rossdale. I LOVE LOVE LOVE his voice.

  7. Rach (Mommy Learns to Blog) said...

    Ooooh, I am the first to enter your contest! Maybe I'll have beginner's luck!

    Of course I don't have a favorite song because who can choose just one, BUT, for the time being I'll go with Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield.

    I know, I know, it's the theme song of The Hills (and yes, I love me some Heidi and Spencer drama) but that's not why I love it. I loved it long before it was the theme song of the show - it's just so upbeat and inspirational, the kind of song you crank and sing out at the top of your lungs because you just feel good the moment you hear the first beat.

    Random.org - PICK ME!!!!

    PS Love your playlist!

    How cute it that...

    Favorite song - Make me Better by Fabolous

  9. Ruth said...

    My fave song is Barbie Doll by Jack Ingram. It rocks in a great country way!

  10. Cheryl Lage said...

    Does it date me too badly to say I STILL love "The Groove is in the Heart" by Dee-Lite?

    :)

    Happy First Contest! Happy to Enter!

  11. Amber said...

    I love contests and I am the first to enter. Bonus! My favorite song at the moment is Bleeding Love but Leona Lewis. It usually changes often.

  12. Jaime H. said...

    I'm never first to comment on contests HAHA!

    I'm sure my girls would LOVE the Nemo plush. We love all things Disney!

    My favorite song....

    a fun one to listen to is "Picture to Burn" by Taylor Swift. The video is fun, too! My kids love that song because they get to say "Stupid" without getting in trouble.

  13. Shirley said...

    Hi Jen! Great Contest!

    My favorite song right now is Gunpowder and Lead by Miranda Lambert

    Thanks Jen!

  14. Sarah Mae said...

    Hmmm...currently my favorite song is probably The More I Seek You by Christ for the Nations - it is SO beautiful!!! Listen to it here:

    Seriously, you have to listen!

  15. Kristen Andrews said...

    1234 by Fiest! never get sick of it!

  16. Insane Mama said...

    I got you babe! The original... It's so good, because it describes two people that are a little "off" and they are happy

  17. Alice said...

    Hey - you're just trying to get rid of stuff from your house. I've got a whole bin of stuffed animals I should prize off! ; )

    I'm gonna give you a favorite song, but please don't enter me in the contest. We need another stuffed animal like we need another HotWheels car.

    Favorite song really depends on my mood, but when I'm eyeballing a lot of hot guys on a stage, I appreciate 'Save A Horse (Ride a Cowboy)' ; )

  18. Tena said...

    What a hard question to answer, I love so many, but I will go with All the Way by Frank Sinatra, this was the first song we danced to as man and wife, and 8 years later it still does something to me!

    Very mean of you to make someone just pick one song, what's next, favorite book? Or favorite 80's movie... just not fair!
    LOL!!!
    Have a great weekend

  19. John Deere Mom said...

    Okay, don't hate me but have you heard the new NKOTB Summertime? I'm just saying. It's not bad. Really. Quit laughing....and send Nemo to me.

  20. flickrlovr said...

    I don't need a Nemo fishie, but I love music, and thought I'd contribute a few of my current faves (no, I couldn't pick just one, had to pick 3):

    The entire Viva La Vida CD from Coldplay (their newest)...these first 2 songs are off this album.

    1. Lost-Coldplay

    YAY for your first contest, Jen.
    You're a big girl blogger now!

    Next, can you have a contest where you give away a Nikon D3? Kthxbai.

  21. Susan said...

    Wow, that's really tough! I guess I will just name the first song that comes to mind since it would be too overwhelming to pick a favorite. "Hey There Delilah" by the Plain White T's.

  22. Toni said...

    This is impossible!! I have too many that I love and a bazillion that I can never name, because I am horrible at naming songs :)

    My wedding song is an all time favorite. "Into the Mystic" by Van Morrison.

  23. PostCards said...

    Favourite song, right this minute? Four Minutes by Madonna feat. J-Tim I wanna still have my groove on when I'm her age....and singing with sweet Justin wouldn't hurt either! Pick me! Pick me! ;)

  24. tollesons4him said...

    Ok I have tooo many songs that are my favorite but if I have to choose one I think it would be (yes it is an oldie from the 80's)
    Jack & Diane by John Couger Mellancamp....I never get sick of that song.

  25. Rebecca a.k.a. Mum said...

    Oh that is cute Jen, how cool you are having your 1st giveaway!!!

    I think at the moment my fav song is:

    'Waiting on the world to change'
    by John Mayer.

  26. Rochelle said...

    Black Coffee in Bed by Squeeze

    Old School, I know.

  27. Tenakim said...

    no need to enter me into your contest- we already have that same Nemo, but currently I can't get enough of "I'm in love with a girl" by Gavin DeGraw- since I'm in love with him- I pretend he's singing to me!

  28. Tiffany said...

    I have 2 faves. Both older than I am. LOL 1st Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison (even though I have green eyes) and 2nd is At Last by Etta James. I guess I'm an old soul.

  29. Christina said...

    Woohoo, fun!
    Well right now, Abba is playing on your site and I must say that's one of my faves! Can't wait till Mama Mia comes out! :o)

  30. Molly said...

    Hot Stuff by Donna Summer. Total 70's disco song by the ultimate disco queen!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  31. Drama Mama said...

    anything by SUGARLAND!

  32. Naturalbirth said...

    "Two Step" by Dave Matthews Band. The whole album is good to drink wine to:)

  33. Jenny said...

    Imma gonna say....."In Your Eyes", Peter Gabriel.
    We need another stuffed animal in this house like we need a hole in the head...but I like contests!

  34. maggie said...

    I can't begin to narrow down my favorite song, but right now it's probably The Promise by Tracy Chapman for really sappy reasons.

    I'm so glad you stopped by my blog because TWICE in the past couple weeks I have bought a bottle of wine based on loving the label (and there are some I'm going back to buy later for that reason), and I remembered that there was someone cool enough to include that same habit in the About Me section of her blog, but I couldn't remember who. And it was you! Now I can stop racking my brain now and get on with the glass(es) of wine.

  35. wehave9 said...

    I have loved "Dream On by Aerosmith" since I was a small child. But right now I would say "Lost in This Moment by Big and RIch" because it is the song I will be walking down the aisle to in 3 weeks.!

  36. Finding Normal said...

    Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol.

  37. Big Family Buzz said...

    My favorite song changes with the season. Here are my three faves for this summer that you absolutely MUST add to your playlist.

    I'm yours--Jason Mraz
    All Summer Long--

    And if you only do one country song, this would be it for this summer:

    Kristofferson--Tim McGraw

  38. sphinx63 said...

    Right now, my fav song is "Me and Mrs. Jones" by Michael Buble. Thanks!

  39. Chelle said...

    This is hard. Maybe too hard. I LOVE Jane Says by Jane's Addiction....or Piano Man by Billy Joel. They just remind me of some great friends, great times and fun memories...

    Thanks for the fun contest!

  40. JnL4God said...

    I have several but I really like the song "Held" by Natalie Grant.
    THanks for the contest.
    Lynn

  41. Dawn said...

    Right now I'm loving Michael Buble and his song Everything.

    And, I'm totally enjoying everything by Little River Band. Brings back some great memories!

  42. another day in paradise said...

    Watching Top Gun right now, so
    "You've lost that loving feeling"

  43. Heather at A Boy, A Girl, & A Pug said...

    My new favorite song-
    Wicked Twisted Road by Reckless Kelly.
    Heard it this weekend and I love it!

  44. Jen said...

    I left a comment yesterday but don't see it!

    There's no way I could pick just one song! You had me thinking about it all yesterday morning and I finally blogged about it.

    I love some of the songs on your playlist and need to add them to my mp3 player!!! =)
