We're Feeling Zazzy!

We're feeling pretty zazzy over here today.
Why, you might ask?
Look over there. On the sidebar. Lower.
350 of you openly now admit to being here.
IN PUBLIC.
The Redhead is pleased.
So pleased that one of you brave people is going to do a little shopping on me.
And with Spring Break looming it's an excellent time to hit the CSN
I love some stuff that stands out! I hate being in the airport, waiting for my suitcase, 
and it looks like 50 other cases sailing by.
Which is why my bags are purple.
And I know you aren't surprised.
I've got $40 for one of you so you can stick out like a sore thumb just like me!
So let's do some perusing, shall we?
 Tell me you wouldn't spot this right away on the luggage carousel in San Juan.
Plenty of room for duty free rum.
 Jetting to Animal Kingdom? This set is a MUST! 
The zebras know when they're being upstaged.
 C'mon down to Miami with these sturdy cases! 
I'll meet you at the airport for Mojitos.
 A chic little jaunt to New York, perhaps? 
You could pack a lot of Halston in these babies.
(What? This isn't a fashion blog. What do I know?)
Yeah, you'd definitely stand out with these. 
Omaha, here I come! Get me a Marlin Perkins Martini!

The rules are simple to enter, and you have 5 ways to do it:

1. Become a follower, or admit that you already have a problem
2. Leave a comment
3. When's your next vacation, and where are you going?
4. Visit The CSN Stores and tell us how you'd blow your bucks
5. Blog about my giveaway or mention it on your blog, and come back and let me know.

There you go. FIVE chances to win $40 to play with.
The contest will be open until midnight, January 28 and the winner will be announced in the Saturday morning Going Shopping post.
I'll make sure I have really nice shoes for that one.
Hmmm, maybe this IS a fashion blog!

Nahhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Chelsea said...

We actually haven't decided where our next vacation will be, but we will probably go somewhere out of town over Tom's spring break. Kansas City, perhaps? Who knows! :)

Thanks for the great giveaway!

Heather said...

I admit...I have a problem! I actually own no luggage. I either have to borrow from my mother or share a duffle bag with my husband. I have no travel plans in my future, but I would love to take a trip to New York! :)

Cheryl D. said...

I'm not participating because I like my luggage (although the polka dot set was pretty sweet).

I just wanted to congratulate you on hitting 250! Awesome!

Michelle L. said...

You know I will follow you anywhere. No matter how weird the destination.

Michelle L. said...

My next vaca: Joshua Tree National Park, which looks just like the snide field in Dr. Seuss.

Erin@likegrandmas said...

I have a problem...

Erin@likegrandmas said...

Love the word Zazzy! Makes me think BA-Zinga!

Erin@likegrandmas said...

Hopefully we'll go back to OBX this summer(and love those red ones!)

Erin@likegrandmas said...

Dag, I combined 3&4 already!

Erin@likegrandmas said...

Congrats on your confirmed stalkers, gonna put ya on the sidebar!

Granny said...

I just discovered your blog today and have spent the last half hour going through posts. I'm a new follower and will be watching to see what you come up with next.

I will be traveling to Florida this summer to visit my daughter and grandkids. I'd love one of the bright orange bags. I hate watching for my plain black bag come around for the fourth time before I recognize that it's mine by the small tear at the corner.

Kelly@TearingUpHouses said...

1. I'm a (looong time) follower.

2. This is my comment!

3. I'd buy the red carry on.

4. We're going EVERYWHERE this year (you know what I'm talking about).

5. I'm blogging about this today!

I better win this shiz! I need it for our trip! :)

I'm gonna pop up to DC b/c all of my siblings are going to be in one place for the first time in years AND my brother is bringing my shiny new niece.

I NEED those pink and white polka dot cases!

Cindy @The Flipping Couple said...

Travel! That's almost my fav topic. I don't know, it's kind of a toss up, you know? Dogs, travel and drywall. Or something. Anyway, our next trip is going to be ALASKA. Because I live in Minnesota, so logically we'd want to travel to the only place colder than the place where we live. Right?

Bambi said...

hola, ummm hoping to go to Victoria B.C. in a month or so. Haven't really planned it yet waiting for fundage. :) and a big ole Hooooorah on the 354 ;)

The DIY Show Off said...

I'm a follower and love coming over here - gets a smile every time and more if I forget and read with a mouthful of tea. ;)

The DIY Show Off said...

Our next vacation? We're still deciding. It'll be Aruba, Bahamas or St. Lucia. And if it doesn't stop snowing, it will be to FL to stay with you until PA thaws out. haha! :)

The DIY Show Off said...

I shared your giveaway with my readers! :)
Thanks, Sunny!

The DIY Show Off said...

CSN has everything. I'm on the hunt for a parsons chair for a desk that my husband refuses to part with. If I girly it up with a skirted desk chair...I can live with it. :)

Enjoy the weekend!

I'm a subscriber and did it "before it was cool" (not that there ever was such a time.

Amanda- Hip House Girl said...

I'm commenting! I love your blog!

Amanda- Hip House Girl said...

My next vacation is my HONEYMOON and we have no idea where we're going!

Amanda- Hip House Girl said...

Is this too boring? I would totally buy these sheets. http://www.csnstores.com/Simple-Luxury-400SH-ST-HCY1098.html

Tanya said...

Following!

Tanya said...

Can I just tell you, this is my first trip to "rehab" and as soon as I got here, I cracked up at your header photo...love it!

Tanya said...

What my next vacation is and what I would like it to be are two different things. What I'd love is something warm....sandy....and beachy! But what it will probably be is a trip home (Boston) this summer. Still sandy and beachy, just a little more "Fahged aboudit" than "would you like to snorkle for 1/2 or a full hour?"

Tanya said...

I already know how I'd blow it! Lighting! Love lighting! We're redoing our master bedroom, so some new lighting is a must!

MJ said...

I'm already a happy follower :)

MJ said...

Not that thats a problem tho ;)

MJ said...

Am actually going to see my mom for the first time in 2 years at the end of the month but no one knows yet so sshhhhh....

MJ said...

I want a small pot to match my big purple le creuset pan, or maybe something to make decent pancakes...

Christy Beans said...

I'll admit I have several problems but I’m not confessing them here… unless you have a few days to spend reading up. ;) Public acknowledgement of my obsession with the Land of Rehab is part of the 12-step program for those of us wading a little too far into the deep end of the pool o' slightly cracked psyches. But given a choice between a trip with the gentlemen in white coats and an adventure which could build on a historical trend towards flat tires, a midnight trip to the ER, mumbling naked men wandering down a hotel hallway and driving the wrong way down a one-way street (Um. I have very interesting vacations), I'd love to hit Disney World again. My inner child needs some quality time with Walt's crew. Don't think it's happening this year, but one can dream. It's the wish my heart makes. Curiously, most often when I'm sleeping.

And as I am owned by the Feline Overlord Spencer, king of the chateau in which he so generously allows me to stay (as long as there's a steady and generous supply of tuna), the princely sum of $40 would have to go towards a new nap-throne: http://www.allpetfurniture.com/Go-Pet-Club-F14-GPC1008.html While supervising the online inquiries from his royal perch (aka the keyboard), he proclaimed it was that or a sack of the best finely cut catnip. Either one is bound to arouse the envy of the canine peasants.

I'd happily blog about you, but I'm just now falling victim to the lure of blogspot and am a newbie with just a title at the moment. Thanks for all the fun project ideas and the window into Rehabville! =)

Christin@Pregnant with power tools said...

Goodness, next vacay will be to Legoland in May for the kiddos birthdays.

Christin@Pregnant with power tools said...

I would blow my bucks on tools (no surprise there I hope!) Can't narrow it down 'cause I want them all!

Hopefully my next vacation will be this summer to Bikes, Blues and BBQ in Fayetteville, AR.

Tiffany said...

I like the Rockland Rolling Duffle in Kensington!

P.S. III: I would, without a doubt, blow my CSN money on Paula Deen cookware... and season it with butter!

P.S. IV: I just blogged about it!!!

Vonda said...

I'm a follower for sure!

Vonda said...

I love CSN, that's it. That's my comment.

Vonda said...

Not sure when our next vacation (like a full out week of somewhere) will be, but we just got back from snowboarding (Wed. - Sun.) in Snowshoe, WV.

Vonda said...

Ironically, we need new luggage as our zipper broke on big suitcase, so I'd probably get a new big suitcase in hopes that we go somewhere this year that involves a plane. And, hence, the need for a suitcase that zips. All the way.

Vonda said...

I just blogged about it. Thanks for giving me something to blog about!

Amy said...

My problems are too long to list....don't think anyone wanna hear about them! LOL

Amy said...

I next vacation will be this spring, to Asia. Not too sure how many countries I'll stop by yet.

Amy said...

I definitely need some new luggage bags, so these from the CSN are perfect! I'm going to get those bright color ones for sure! :)

I'm a subscriber, leaving a comment, and crossing my fingers. :)

Wow, now you have me wanting new cool luggage. Mine is all generic black. Plus I am an artist!

Nest trip: The Lake of the Ozarks to my brothers condo with a kller view! I would be on a cruise right now if I hadn't broken off with my EX boyfriend!

My next vacation is our honeymoon at Couples Negril in Jamaica! WOOT!

Sara @ Russet Street Reno said...

I would love a new rug for the entry from CSN.

Misti said...

Hey there! Reading and quietly following along. Your ideas are so unique, and not just the same thing I see on every other blog. :)

Misti said...

My next vacation, hopefully, will be to San Francisco and San Luis Obispo. We're aiming for summer...now to save the cash! :)

Misti said...

If I won the $40, I think I'd go with curtains for our bedroom or perhaps a better light for the dining room...I'm thinking something multi directional, to put the focus up towards the corners of the ceiling, since our ceiling is so short and our dining room table is so tall.

Misti said...

Also, I follow you. :)

Sarah (Sew Very Happy) said...

I'll admit it...I have a problem. :)

Sarah (Sew Very Happy) said...

I love the colors you've chosen for your home. Now I can't wait to have my own home so I can go color crazy too. The green and blue are to die for!

Sarah (Sew Very Happy) said...

My next vacation is to the lovely land of Florida for my brother's wedding in March. I can't wait. I'm trying to find a way to spend an extra couple of days in the land of warmth and palm trees.

Sarah (Sew Very Happy) said...

I no longer have a Feline Overlord to direct my shopping, but I believe my Minion really wants a swingset, so the $40 may go towards one of those.

Liz said...

Unfortunately no vacation in the near future...not much work=not much money=no vacation...BUT if the tide changes I hope we'll be going back to Tybee Island!

Sharon said...

I'd have to spend my bucks on a need! I've got a crockpot all picked out over there...I just need to win someones giveaway! :-)
