{Holy Giveaway, Batman!}

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

In honor of Today's Letters 1 month Birthday, Mr. Loerke and I are giving away 2 gallons of Blue Bell Ice Cream, 3 different flavors of Magic Shell, and 1 lb of granola from Legal Grounds. Why? Because in addition to thinking this is the best dessert combination EVER, we believe there's just no better way to celebrate.


To enter, leave a comment below by Sunday, May 23rd and we'll announce the lucky winner on Monday.

By the way, Husband and I couldn't be more grateful for your support. Your comments have made us laugh, they've made us cry, they've even made us do chest bumps and leg kicks in jammers. THANK YOU.

A Note from the Pony Express: To honor our out-of-state and international readers, Husband and I will be including some Benjamin's in the winner's package to cover the cost of ice cream. Holla.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Today's Letters currently has a readership of 1,000+ readers per day and is viewed in over 60 countries. If you'd like to become one of our monthly sponsors please contact me. I'd be happy to send you a rate sheet.

Kelly's Adventures said...

I think that might be the best give-a-way ever!


I just found your blog and fell in love with reading it all, and read every single page through. My friend and I went to lunch the other day and we talked about this couple we knew that was engaged but broke it off.

She said it made her think perhaps love didn't really exist, and I said Oh it does, and I sent her a link to your blog!

JT said...

I'm in it to win it. If I win, Steph and I will bring dessert to our next meeting/hangout with Scott, Kristen and you guys.

just sayin...

Magic shell is the BEST (I considered calling it the bomb haha it is pretty much the only way to describe my love for magic shell)!!! Also I love your blog, it's inspired me to look at all of the little things each day that has made my day more enjoyable. Congratulations on the success of your blog! I can't wait every day to read your posts and see your hilarious pictures!! =)

Hmmm, even if I dont win, I might have to try this combination. I've never had Magic Shell and that granola sounds amazing!

Awesome blog, love it, shared it with my friends just yesterday.

Beth said...

This is such a great blog, I found it via your husband's PA site. I think you guys inspire and challenge many people with their own relationships and marriages.

Ames said...

your favorite Oklahoma loerke's need it to help celbrate the big 6 years in June!!!

JulieKG said...

Three confessions: #1 - Blue Bell ice cream is the greatest thing in my life. It might be on my TOP 5 list of things that continue to transform my heart. #2 - I've never had Magic Shell and think that is a dam* shame. #3 - Em - I have the sock monkey house shoes that would match your hat.

alyssa said...

My husband & I are celebrating our 7monthiversary just now. And we totally agree - ice cream is one of the best ways to celebrate anything! Very happy to have discovered your blog today. :)

sophiemac11 said...

Mister mac's favorite dessert on the planet is vanilla blue bell with choc mag shell. I think it's OK... But I'd prefer it topped with tofu and brusselsprouts.

ashley gundacker said...

Jinger said...

Sounds like quite a contest! Enter in our fam of 5! We can down the whole 1/2 gallon in one sitting.

Ashley said...

I found you site recently and I just love it. I love that you promote happy marriages. I love your letters to your husband. Someday your children will love to look at these. You're an inspiration to me.

Nina said...

Sadly this is my first comment. If I were to comment every letter I love, I would have left a bajillion comments! I really love you guys! Your letters make me so happy! And I fell in love with the "Metal box" idea. My husband is set to deploy this summer and when he gets back I wanna start savin' them dollas.

Keep up the good work with the letters! :)

What a nice prize! Ed and I will pick it up on our way to Tulsa after visiting Alisa and Chad in Houston next month. Blue Bell is my favorite ice cream ( Homemade Vanilla) and they don't have it in the St. Louis area.

I enjoy your letters and Tim's comments as he has gone through school.

Congratulations on your 5th anniversary. Aunt Nancy and Uncle Ed

I want in! I've never had granola with my ice cream, and sadly, I've only had one flavor of Magic Shell... so you see, my life is dull and lifeless. I need this prize.

Megan Michelle said...

Congrats! I love your blog, such an inspiration.

This seems like the perfect dessert for our Monday night hangout with the Loerke's and soon to be Tyroch's. I am not sure how anyone else could or should win...

Hannah DeVries said...

Don Dinnerville said...

If I should win, I may require the help of you and the mister to polish some of that off. Just saying.

I might even let you kick off your shoes and put your feet up on the coffee table (have I mentioned how much your old furniture misses you?). And can I assume that if / when I win and you bring over the assortment of deliciousness that you'll do it in full costume (see picture above)?

shauna said...

Christie Johnson said...

You two are so cute and your marriage is lovely and inspiring. Blue Bell makes my head spin and to top it off with some crunchy, chocolately goodness makes my heart pitter patter!

Qkwan said...

I love your blog, and I love ice cream. So pick me! :)

Recently attended a bridal shower for two soon-to-be-married PA classmates and gave them each the address for this blog in their cards. I figured it was better than any advice I might give.

Thanks for being here and helping me to remember to be grateful for the sweet little things my husband does.

Robyn said...

I just love your blog! Your Tuesday Questions have really inspired my fiance and I for discussion points before (and after) we get married! Thankyou for your wonderfulness everyday! Love it!!
p.s. Blue Bell is one of the greatest inventions! And when paired with Magic Shell... you just can't go wrong!

Kara said...

the ice cream in china is half lard-half frozen whipped cream. sometimes there's fake chocolate or black beans in the middle to make it more interesting.
it. is. nasty.
if I had access to 2 gallons of blue bell right now it would be gone in about 45 seconds. no lie.
