Confession ~ Seal Album Giveaway

In 1994 I was 12 years old and
jammed to Seal's hit song at the time,
Kiss From a Rose.
Yes, I owned that baby on cassette tape!
Probably where I recorded it
off the radio thinking I was so cool.

When I was told Seal's new album was being released November 11th I was excited to hear it.

I have been overly stressed lately.
I haven't had the chance to write blog
posts lately or even read my favorites.
I recently wrote an updated post to try and
catch everyone up. I am on overload.

Once I received Seal's Soul album, the kids and I played it in the living room stereo. We danced, sang and smiled. Since then we have listened to it while driving and singing along. After dropping the kids off at school, I listen to it alone and relax. A Change is Gonna Come is very soothing. Taking a moment to be stress-free has not happened around here lately. ~Thank you Seal!

My title says a giveaway... so here it is! I have the opportunity to giveaway a copy of Seal's new album on CD. How exciting? In perfect time for the holidays too, when you need to relax the most!

But wait... that's not all!
(always wanted to say that, so infomercial)

I also get to giveaway (something I don't even own myself) mini-retro iPod speakers thanks to Delight.com!

How cool are these?! They will make a perfect stocking stuffer for my daughter.

Think of Delight.com as a unique boutique that stocks the perfect gift for everyone on your list. Delight features eco-friendly tote bags, gadgets for guys, kitchen gear that is smart and saves time, travel essentials, one-of-a-kind baby gifts, stocking stuffers for holiday gift shopping and unique jewelry and décor accessories with most under $50.

Also a great way to get the inside scoop
on newsletter only deals and tips sign up here.

Even though I want to believe I can do
it all, I can't. My load has to be lightened.
Therefore, for me, A Change is Gonna Come.

Hi! You are one of my new twitter followers (@cgccoach). Your blog is so pretty...chocolate and pink is my favorite color combo! I just had to comment on this post because you really got me saying you were 12 when that seal song came out!! I was 22! I think I got one more gray hair reading that (LOL)

I want to enter the give-away contest so here's what you asked for: in my downtime, I like to read, watch a movie (altho I rarely have two whole hours), and do the Washington Post's daily crossword puzzle (newly acquired hobby). I also like to walk my dog or go for a hike in the woods (still with the dog).
BTW, I was 34, with 3 little kids in 1994. Who feels old now?

kat said...

I've been eying those iPod speakers. I just recently picked up a refab Nano for a trip and I'm loving it.

In my downtime I tend to read, read and read some more. And I guess when I'm not reading (or online working), I'm out shopping and hanging out with my friend and husband. I wish I could say that I'm cooking, but I've been so frustrated with our stove lately, I just fight the urge to cook with every once of my body - LOL.

Off to add you to my Twitter friends.

Love your giveaway! =) I'm so curious about Seal's new album.

My favorite downtime activity is taking bubble baths! I take a great book with me, some music and just relax. No one can bother me there, right? lol

ParentingPink said...

Love your blog! And in 1994 I just graduated from college, so now I officially feel old! Thanks Seal! LOL

I love those ipod speakers....too cool! My husband is a gadget guy, and he'd love them.

What do I do in my offtime...what off-time?? :) I love reading, and have lately become obsessed with the Twilight Series. I also love to just completely veg sometimes, so I'm a big Pogo.com addict as well!

pam said...

It's funny but I listen to that Seal song 'Change gonna come' LOUD on my computer. I was just able to buy the one song but the whole record would be great. And speakers - oooooh. Thanks.

Oh gosh, those speakers are adorable. In my downtime, I do whatever feels right - usually catch up on TiVO and play with the dog, those are my most relaxing.

I have to say that in my down time I like to surf the internet looking for coupons or bargains; I love to read; and I love to bake.

Shannan P said...

Downtime? What's that? LOL When I have a few minutes to myself, I usually read or occasionally pick up the Nintendo DS and play one of hubby's games.
