Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

Scavenger Hunt Details announced (finally!!)

Here we go!

What: The Christopher Family 1st Blogging Scavenger Hunt
When: Beginning May 1st
Why? Uhm, I thought I would do something fun
Prizes: There may be more but here are a few
Any DVD or CD mentioned anywhere on this blog or on hubby's blog (yes they will be new!!)
Chik Fil A products (to be determined soon)
Free Books (it will be new and you get to pick from a list)
A cool family game. I will try to post a picture. Its pretty cool.
Family Devotional
Children's Healthcare of Atlanta onesie or toddler outfit
Gift Certificate to Winkflash or Snapfish for prints
cool travel mug
stationary
Chik Fil A Cow (minimoos)
10.00 Amazon gift certificate ( its not much but I dont have much, haha!)
Cute little picture frame


and more!!!
Here are the rules!
1.Starting May 1st, I will post 3 questions each day on this blog for you to find or answer. The answers can either be found on this blog or you will have to find them on another blog. The answers can not come from your blog. You may post these questions on your blog in hopes that other bloggers can help you out. This will go on for 14 days. I will use a lot of the participating blogs for answers and such. I will not post questions on Sundays.
This is not meant to be a stressful contest, but rather fun. I will give you hints or a clue and you need to search a blog that contains that info. There will most likely more than 1 answer for a lot of the questions.
2.Everyone gets a point for answering the questions each day . I received some great input from people so we are taking off the first 10 people because it really is not fair. everyone who participates will get the chance to win and everyone wants to win!!! You can answer directly on my blog unless otherwise specified. IF there are questions with only 1 answer, you will email me so that others wont get your answer!!! Don't forget this is great advertisement for your blog as well! My email address is amyschristopher@comcast.net
3.Extra points will be announced at different times.
. There may be an extra point to post at a designated blog. You just need to make sure that in your post you say you are from Amys scavenger hunt!!!

I want to make this as fair as possible, so any suggestions are very welcomed. Thanks to all for their input already!


How will prizes be given?
a) the highest number of points will get a prize
b) I will choose a lot of random active participants. To be an active participant, you need to post at least 3 days a week or a total of 9 for the 3 weeks.
c) Everyone who puts this contest on their blog will be in a drawing for a prize
d)someone who only gets 1 point every single day will win a prize
So far over 90 people have said they wanted to play. I will post all participating blogs on my blog May 1st. I hope we get more to participate....
If you would like to participate, let me know via this post or email. If you would like a reminder about the scavenger hunt, email me at amyschristopher@comcast.net

I will be listing everyone who tells me they want to participate and some of the questions will come from your blogs so this list is going to be very helpful. Michael helped me come up with questions tonight so I am expecting this to be great fun!


Please post this or find a way to let your friends know! Credit or points will be given if you a) advertise this on your blog and b) you refer people over here! Also, let me know if you have anything fun or interesting on your blog we may use.
I was going to give a hint today but I think I will wait and start giving hints after we start!!!!
There is still time to sign up!!!!!!

I'm in, Amy. Sounds like so much fun, I don't even think you need prizes! Though that's a mighty nice list of prizes you've got. Can't wait to get started! (And I'll be sure to advertise today.)

Karen said...

I'm in...you know I am always up for a contest:-)

P.S. The Chik-Fil-A cow is a huge hit with 3 particular toddlers:-)

You had me at Chick-Fil-A. :) Do you have RSS feeds enabled? I'll check and see and if you do I'll add you to my bloglines feeds so I won't forget.

Michelle said...

You already know I'm in, but I'm a little confused on something! You said the answers couldn't come from our own blog, but yet you also said some of the questions will be coming from each participants blog and to look around our own blogs for things you might be able to use. So how can the answer NOT come from our own blog if you are taking things directly from our blogs? I'm confused! :)

Sparky Duck said...

I'd love to take part, though I'm not sure about some of the prizes, what is Chik-Fil-A? Perhaps I'm very ignorant or is it something you only get in the US?
