Excuses & a Giveaway

Oh hey, it’s me….Kels

Despite my crazy hectic schedule of grad school, major projects and working a 30hr/wk job (hello health screenings) I’m sure you’re thinkin “excuses much?” Yes….yes to ALL the excuses. See my Aunt’s friend’s brother’s daughter’s cousin twice removed lizard lost it’s tail. As you can see I’m taking the proper amount of time to grieve….:P

Ok, I know I’ve been slowly disappearing into the blog-vortex of no writing….For this I apologize….I’ve got some fun things comin down the pipeline so at least there’s somethin to look forward too.

Today happens to be one of those fun things.

I’ve joined up with a divine group of ladies for this awesome giveaway! You can find me if you look hard enough ;P Giveaway runs today through the 11th (or next Tues for you special’s out there 😉 )

Halloween Contest with Rover.com & PicMonkey

Happy Monday Friends!

I come to y’all today with such a fun contest! Rover.com has partnered with PicMonkey to show off our pet costume skills called #FrankenPet And while I may not love the whole dressing myself up for Halloween, I DO love a good pet costume 😀 Cute animals in costume, what’s not to love?

First off, Rover.com is basically an online pet-sitter finder (did that even make sense?) One would go to Rover.com to either find a pet-sitter for their pets or offer their pet-sitting skills. Pretty convenient so little Fido doesn’t haveta go stay in a kennel. Boo 😦

I feel as though I don’t need to explain PicMonkey to anyone, but just in case you haven’t sipped the Blogger kool-aid yet, it’s the most amazing photo editing site available. Not an opinion but a fact. They have a billion (also a fact) fonts, overlays, frames, and other editing tools to use.

Would you like to win a Go-Pro as well as free use of the Royale features on PicMonkey for an entire year? Le, duh. You’ve come to the right place 😀

Ok fine, so I do dress up too….who wore it best?

Contest Rules:

Between now and Halloween (aka Friday), create and share your photos online and be sure to tag them with #FrankenPet. When you tag your photos with #FrankenPet, you’ll be entered to win the grand prize: a GoPro camera and mount plus a year of PicMonkey Royale!! Additional runner-up prizes will also be given out.

One winner and one runner-up will be chosen in each category: “Creepy Canines,” “Scaredy Cats,” and “Other Beasts.” One grand prize winner will be chosen from each category so I guess if you’ve got more then one pet, get to snappin those photos!!

For more details on the contest you can click over to Rover.com. <<That link goes straight to the contest rules, I wouldn’t Trick you….I’m all about the Treats, duh 😉 Speaking of sweet, Rover.com also gave me a Promo Code for my readers. Use Code BLONDER20 for $20 off your dog boarding! My Mommy boards my dog but for an occasion when she can’t I’m all in!

She loves me….aka I’m holding her for these totally non-staged photos and she’s attacking my face to get away so she can chew her sweater off….

Have I convinced you to join in the fun? I know I’ll be sharin my spooky(?) pet photos because what’s more fun then dressing up an already adorable pet and taking pictures of it? Maybe a human baby, but let’s not push it…..

Now I demand ask kindly but with much gumption, that you also tag me in your photos so I can see them all!! (I might even pick my own and re-tweet/re-gram/re-post/re-whatever it)
