CSN $80 Giftcard - CLOSED

Winner: Suzy at Running On My Time

Do you like to shop? Well I like to shop online! I used to say I wasn't much of a shopper, but the truth is I am a FANTASTIC online shopper. I can find deals and bargains galore.

As summer has descended upon Miami, I realized that if we could just find a good ceiling fan for the living room where we are surrounded by windows, it would keep air circulating and keep it from feeling like I was baking all afternoon. So it was time to go in search of a new lighting fixture which would do the trick.
After looking at CSNLighting.com, I found exactly what I wanted, this awesome brushed nickel fan made sense to me as it matches our cabinets perfectly.
But apparently, I hold only one opinion in this condo and it wasn't to be the final prevailing opinion... The man of the conodo, wanted plain and simple...blending in to the ceiling. I pointed out this lovely white number. Then just to be funny, I pointed out that CSNLighting also provided numerous options, so he could probably select anything he wanted even this...(seriously wouldn't you love this in your room as like an 8 year old girl?!)
He found a bland white fan to blend in to the ceiling that I hated, but really pick your battles right?? He can have his fan and I booked an Alaskan Cruise. :)
All right, now I know all you really want to know is how to win this gift $80 card to CSNSTORES!!

I have been looking for some sheet sets that would replace the ones that I have for the Spring Summer. The ones I have now are getting rather thin. CSN looks like they have quite a number of sheets to pick from.

I would love a knife sharpener. Before looking on CSN's website, I didn't know that there were so many different ones!

I really liked your post on treadmills and anemia. The treadmill part gave me a good idea for mixing things up on the 'mill and the anemia part encouraged me to start actively noting my symptoms. I guess it was just the post I needed at the time. Thanks!

I seriously just spent over half an hour "spending" my winnings and still couldn't come up with a definitive item, so since it's late and I must head to bed I'm going to say a nice sheet set because we have a nice bed but really crappy sheets right now and could use some good ones!

P.S. Mel-Tall Mom on the Run sent me over! :o)

Laurie said...

I know you are looking for a specific post I found helpful, but I have to say the thing about your blog that I find most helpful is your Gratitude Journal at the end of each post. It helps me to try and be more grateful for everyday things. Thanks!

Mel-Tall Mom On The Run sent me :)

Stacie said...

shellyrm aka jogging stroller mama said...

Hey Amanda! I have been looking at toddler beds since I am needing to furnish the new house and the little guy is a not-so-great sleeper (so I need to keep him trapped in his bed! ;-) CSN has several that I'd love to have a little help paying for! That is what I'd buy if I won. (I know not fitness related...what's wrong with me? heehee)

shellyrm aka jogging stroller mama said...

You already know I love your challenge posts! I look forward to them. You have inspired me to create my own personal 30 days challenges (some I do not success at the first attempt but I keep trying! constant improvement, right?!!

Alisa said...

I couldn't say for sure since I am one of those people who will look at every last thing available and spend hours on the site and well... I do have to work right now :) But, based upon the cruising I did do and on what we need, I would have to say some cookware. Our pots and pans are shot!
