A Good Mood Giveaway


If you've been reading for a few months, you might remember my weeks-long campaign to become the next SAM-e Good Mood Blogger. Because of your votes, I made it to the second round, filmed a great video with my good friend Jeromy, and held my own during the second round of voting. Sadly, I didn't win the contest and am not currently a professional, full time blogger. Last week, I received a box in the mail from SAM-e, full of gifts to thank me for participating in the contest. I thought this was a very nice thing for the company to do. And then I thought it would be even nicer if I payed it forward and gave the goodies to one of you.

The only reason I made it so far in this contest was because of you. Your votes, tweets, posts on Facebook, and daily clicks allowed me - a small-time blogger who posts in her spare time - to rub shoulders with people who have tens of thousands of subscribers. I think that's pretty awesome and this is just one small way for me to say thank you.

The winner of this giveaway will receive the following: 


One box of SAM-e Complete, a SAM-e notebook, a SAM-e reusable water bottle and - most exciting! - a yoga mat in a handy SAM-e yoga bag!


(When the company emailed me to confirm my address, they also asked me if I had any fun New Year's Resolutions. Rather than regale them with my 2011 Plan of Attack, I said that I was hoping to finally master the handstand in my yoga class. I thought it was very thoughtful that they sent me a yoga mat to help out! However, I already have two mats - one at the studio and one at home - so it's extra important that someone else get this one!)

There are two ways to enter, and if you do both you get TWO entries. 

1. Leave a comment on this post and tell me something that puts you in a good mood.

2. If you're on Twitter, copy, paste and tweet the following: I entered to win a yoga mat and other good mood goodies from @TheNewChrissy and so can you! http://tinyurl.com/47cujlb

I'll choose a random winner by Friday afternoon, which is February 11th Good luck!

  12. Something that puts me in a good mood is time with my good friends. No matter how bad the day is- I know a call from one of them or a drink with one of them can put the biggest smile on my face!
