Anyone Want Fifty Bucks to Spend at


Anyone Want Fifty Bucks to Spend at

Just a reminder that entries are due by Monday at 10AM PDT.  So far, your stories and pictures have been AWESOME!

Yes?  You’re a fan of free money?  Oh, well, you’re in luck then because I just so happen to have a $50 gift card to give away to a lucky reader.  Yup, is sponsoring the giveaway to promote their new Clothing & Shoe Shop, chock full of stylish goodies from ol’ faves such as Carter’s and Osh Kosh to boutique brands like Tea Collection, Splendid and Zutano —in sizes ranging from newborn to 5.

I genuinely am a big fan of the shopping site (1- or 2-day shipping for free if you spend $50?  Um, yes, please.) and, frankly, online shopping in general because it makes my life SO much easier.  Have you ever gone shopping with a one-year-old and nearly three-year-old?  I spend more time picking up discarded items from the cart and telling Skye she needs to sit down in the cart and trying to figure out why one or both of my children are crying and willing my body to grow a few more arms than I do actually shopping.  If I leave the store with just one of the items on my shopping list?  I consider the trip a success.  Especially if that item is aspirin or a very large bottle of wine.

——————————————– Gift Card Giveaway Rules

First, you must be a Laughing Stork Facebook fan to enter.  If you’re not already a fan (and I promise I won’t hold that against you), you can become one by clicking “Like” in the Facebook box in my right sidebar or by visiting my Facebook page.

There are two possible ways to enter.  You can either:

1.  Leave a comment below (using your real e-mail address) describing an especially fun, humorous and/or embarrassing shopping experience you’ve had with your kid(s):  For example, my story would be:  The last time I went shopping with my toddler, she peeked under the dressing room wall while I was trying on a dress and yelled, “I see a naked lady, Mommy!” then proceeded to lick the mirror I was using.  I used a wipe on the mirror, but only managed to further smear her saliva.  The “naked lady” in the adjacent stall exited quickly thereafter.  (True story.)


2.  In celebration of’s new clothing shop, post a picture of your baby, toddler or preschooler looking like a total fashion diva on The Laughing Stork’s Facebook wall.  Here’s an old favorite of mine (and by “old,” I mean from two years ago):

An L.A. girl from the very beginning.

The winner will be announced next Monday, June 25, 2012.

Good luck!
