A school bus and a contest!

Do you know a teacher?

Do you know a pregnant woman?

Do you have a niece?

A nephew?

A son?

A daughter?

A grandson?

A granddaughter?

A friend who has a kid?

A coworker who has a kid?

A neighbor who has a kid?

Or perhaps you make a donation to Toys For Tots come the holidays?

Or Operation Christmas Child?

Or Angel Tree?

Well, I’ve got a lovie, a doll, my Bennett.  In a world where I once lived life rather willy-nilly, he’s created consistency and routine.  Every morning (or darn near every morning), Esther, Bennett and I walk around the neighborhood at the exact same time in order to stop and wave at the school bus.  Given the intense look of concentration on the babe’s face, he’s obviously in awe and wonder of this gigantic, yellow monster on wheels.

Wanting to build on these learning experiences, I decided that ol’ Benny-Boo needed his own bus to scoochie around our living room come his first birthday.  So where did I go?  Three Lil Monkeys, of course.  Not only are they special ordering the darling, wooden, Melissa & Doug school bus set for me, it’s getting personalized with Bennett’s name, too!  Yep, you can do more than consign at a consignment shop!  (This will cost me about $27.00 plus tax… except I consign and have credit, so actually it’s not costing me anything!)Whittle World School Bus Set

SoOoOoOoooo, it’s contest time again!  Whether you like to cruise around for deals like I do or prefer for your purchases to be sparkly new, there’s something at Three Lil Monkeys for everyone.  If you answered “yes” to any of the above 14 questions, then perhaps you’d like $25 store credit at this little consignment shop!

I’ll make this simple.  There are three hoops.

Hoop 1: “Like” Square Piece’s Facebook page.

Hoop 2: “Like” Three Lil Monkey’s Facebook page.

Hoop 3: Below, leave a reply to this post stating that you’ve done such.

Bonus: It pays to share!  For every reply that names the referring friend who alerted them to this contest, the referring friend will be entered an extra time into the drawing.  For instance, if Mary leaves a reply stating something like, “Done!  Liked both pages.  Thanks Stacey Smith for pointing this out to me!” then Stacey Smith will be entered into the drawing again (… and possibly again and again and again if enough of her friends follow her lead).

(Let me know if that doesn’t makes sense!)

Oh, and did I mention that teachers, military, police and firefighters get 15% off at Three Lil Monkeys all of the time?  If you have friends who do any of the above, perhaps you’d like to make sure that they know about this!

The contest will close on Wednesday, October 23rd at midnight.

The drawing will take place the afternoon of Saturday, October 26th, in the company of family, during Bennett’s first birthday party.  (Sorry, fam, but ya ain’t eligible!)

The winner will be notified via email and Three Lil Monkeys will hold your store credit until you are able to find time to shop!

Ready… Set… GO!
