Some Guys have all the luck

I love a good giveaway. Don't you? There is just something exhilarating about entering a giveaway for a great product that you can't quite afford. And then dreaming about what you will do with it if you win.

Except that I never win.

I think the universe is trying to tell me something. Like, it doesn't like me. Why don't you like me universe? I'm poor. We're on a budget. That gift card to go out to eat would be heaven sent.

Or the laptop.

Or the bath and body works. (Unnecessary, but totally appreciated.)

Or that cute purse.

Or even those cowboy boots. (yes. I just said that)

But no. Universe, are you trying to tell me something? Am I not entering enough giveaways? or do I just need to stop entering them altogether?

What do you think? Please interpret these cosmic messages. Otherwise I might just curl up and stop entering giveaways. . .

Keep entering! I've won things i didn't expect to win and when those packages arrive in the mail it's like a Surprise Birthday Party! WahoO!

I am right there with you! I have given up on entering any giveaways because I never win. I hope that you win something one day!

I've never won anything either. My husband won a guitar once, and he said when he wrote his name on the card and put it in the box, he just knew he was going to win. So maybe you have to go into being completely confident that you are the one who will win...I don't know.

I never win either...makes me so sad inside...ok even a little mad....but you know what they say you cant win if you dont enter!!

Keep entering. I was like you -- I thought I'd NEVER win. Then I got lucky, and got lucky again. And again. Also, it pays to do all the following and linking and what not that gives you extra entries.

Keep entering. It can't hurt! And maybe it'll convince John that it's not a *complete* waste of time!

I never win either...except when I won at MMB for the February giveaway...and even then I didn't win, because the package never made it to me. (I still grumble about never getting it. And I wonder where the heck it is!)

Dude, I never win either! Wait... I won some Roxy perfume once. But that was a long time ago. It was a great win though, because it has totally become my favorite scent ever to wear. I've never won anything since, though. I tried to win the cowboy boots too. More than once. Seriously though, when pioneer woman has 24 thousand entries for each give away, it's hard to really think about winning.

Keep entering! I've won several. It will happen!

Don't stop entering! :) As long as entering doesn't take up too much of your time, I say keep at it! I never expected to win anything, and in the last few months I've won three giveaways! If you expect not to win, you'll be so excited when you actually do ;)

Millions will enter, few will win. I am one of the millions. I don't win either. But hey isn't comforting to know you are in good company.

I have won a couple now. One I won was on a site that doesn't have 500 followers so my chances were better. The other was one were there were 500 followers but I jumped through lots and lots of hoops so got lots of entries so won.
So yeah, sometimes I think it isn't even worth it.. but then I just really want whatever the item is and go through all the hoops again.

Keep it up. One of these times it'll be you!

I'm pretty sure the universe hates me, so at least that takes a teensy bit of hatred from you. But only a teensy because you know that universe is one big son of a gun.

I always win when I least expect it. AND that D@#@ Bumbleride stroller that I have seen a million giveaways for...that I have entered EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM AND NEVER WON, I have to admit I am getting a lil bitter!
