GIVE AWAY!!!


IT'S MY FIRST GIVE AWAY!!!!

This week I am going to see WICKED at the Capitol Theater in Salt Lake City on Thursday afternoon at 2pm. My husband got me the tickets (see this post for the story) and we were supposed to go together.

I say "supposed" to go together on Thursday, just like the remodeling of our house was "supposed" to be done by the time our son got home from his mission. (Not a "dig" just an observation!)

But the walls came tumbling down on Saturday (literally) in our kitchen. The new kitchen cabinets are in, granite countertops are in, the wall texturing has been done. NOW, we need to lay the flooring and finish the landscaping. When I say "we" I am speaking in the Queen's english here. The "we" is my husband and he only has so many hours in a day after his full-time job and after he has filled his calling in the bishopric.......so.....that is where the GIVE AWAY comes in. He can't make it to WICKED. He wants to stay home to work on the house so "we" can have it ready for our son's Homecoming talk.

I am giving away his WICKED TICKET.

The seats are NOT together. We are all on our own once we get to the Theater. They are Mezzanine seats and the ticket can be picked up either at the Theatre the day of the show (right before) or at my sister's house the night before. Either way, the winner can let me know through email.

NOW.....how do you win? EASY! Guess the year I was born without offending me! HAHAHAHA!!! So, if you guess that I am too old! I will be VERY offended and you are out of the running! If you guess that I am too young, then I know you are just sucking up!

Remember the show is in Salt Lake City on Thursday April 9th at 2pm. So, if you can't be there, then, don't try to win the (one) ticket. You are guessing for yourself. There are NO transfers. I want this to be fair to all. The Give Away will close on Tues April 7th at 6pm. I will announce the winner by 10pm. (My sister Robin is the verifier of the year of my birth.)

HAPPY GUESSING!!!!


READY.........GUESS........

dede said...

You don't look a day older than me (I mean, a day older than 25) but my guess will be 1963!

*trying to figure it out with your facebook info isn't cheating, right?

dede said...

oh - and IF I win, lunch is on me!

dede said...

and a pedicure!

April said...

hahaha!!! wow....bribery could get you somewhere Dede!!!

Barbaloot said...

Lame work! One question---if the ticket is for the ninth, how does the giveaway end the 10th?

Have fun!!

Youngblood4ever said...

I will so be there if I am right!!! How about 1967????!!!!???? I'm feeling it! I don't have your facebook info, so I did this all on my own (unless of course I am way off and then I was forced into giving the wrong answer!).

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

Oh my gadness, I could actually got to this. And I bet 1963 could be right, dang I am too late.

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

Ok how about 1964.

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

Or 1962, I don't think you are that old.

Kazzy said...

Oh man! I have every song memorized too! But I can't leave work that day, because my boss and coworker are already going to be gone. Have a wicked time!

Still looking forward to seeing you when Miss H comes out in a couple weeks!

Heidi Ashworth said...

I SO wish I could go with you! Feeling bummed, now . . .you'll have to tell me all about it when I see you. You and Kazzy can sing all the songs. To the whole thing. I'll sit and listen. Loving that idea!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

UMMM HELLO??? You know this is my FAVORITE play right? Like my ABSOLUTE favorite!!!

I see that pedicure and lunch with you favorite dessert!!!

I say 1965

April said...

Thanks Barb! I fixed the date! OH YA! I have a give away for the 9th! I announce the winner on the 10th! hahahaha!! I AM BLOND!

There are some good years out there! So if more than one of you have guessed the correct year, I will place your name in a hat and have my hubby pull your name out (since he is giving up his seat). Enter as many times as you like posting the year you think I was born!

Anjeny said...

Hmmmm...I know I am way out of the boundry line to even have any use for this ticket, not that I will win this give-away or anything like that but I just love guessing games...and it is gonna be without a doubt a guess for me since I am not on ur fb so I don't have any info to go by whatsoever so here's my whack at it....

Ok, your son just came home from his mission so he's 21...you mentioned you went to Ricks so I'm guessing you attended at least a year, right? LOL So if you get married a year after you started attending school and may be have your son a year or so after, that would make your birth year...1966 or 1967.

How's that? I am sooo not trying to offend or even trying to flatter you either...remember, I won't be able to use this ticket whatsoever...LOL.

This is actually fun. Please tell me I'm right pretty pls...ahahah. Oh yeah...sorry your hubby couldn't go with ya.

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

I forgot to guess 1965

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

But I still think that 1963 is the right age.

In all honesty I have seen wicked already and so I should let someone else have a turn who hasn't seen it. But it is definetly worth seeing again. So I would totally die to go and see it.

Maybe there should be a lunch get together before hand whether or not we win the ticket?

T said...

stink! I have to pass, stupid baseball/scouts/life...

wendy said...

Well, dang, if mom hadn't told me you were dead all these years, I WOULD HAVE KNOWN your birthdate. I would have loved to have gone, alas, have to work, and I'm not a good guesser (although you are soooo young and beautiful looking, how could anyone know!)

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

What else can I say to win?
Seriously I am on spring break just hanging out in Utah valley all week long. No work, No kids, No obligations whatsoever.

Is it 1960?

Or is it 1961

How bout 1962?

Well maybe 1963? I think I guessed that one twice already.

But perhaps it is really 1964? I better put that one at least once or twice. 1964, 1964, 1964.

It is possible that it is 1965. That would make us the same age. Yes very possible.

And I will throw in 1966 just for good measure.

I think I have covered all the bases.

But like I said, it would be nice for someone who loves it and hasn't seen it yet to win.

No one mourns the wicked, ya know?

April said...

I am loving the comments! I do see the year of my birth here a couple of times!

NHC!! You are cracking me up! Shelle only guessed once....hmmmm...You too YB4....

Keep it up! You are doing great!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

April...

Okay...1963, 1964, 1965, 1966, 1967, 1968

and even though I don't want to I'm putting in these years also

1960, 1961, 1962

Nutty Hamster Chick is playing hard ball! :)

val of the south said...

Can we vote for who we think should get the ticket?

I think NHC has had the suckiest year and NEEDS to go with you!!

I was going to guess - seeings as I'm close to there and free that day - but blasphemous as it sounds, the first time I heard of Wicked was when your husband was getting you tickets - so it would be unfair of me to go - since the rest of you have the ENTIRE score memorized!!!!

Though lunch before does sound fun...

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

DEAR OLD SHIZ,

I don't want to pressure you, well maybe I do, but WHAT IS THIS FEELING, the feeling that I might actually win something. And to think that it is ONE SHORT DAY away. You know that you would be so POPULAR with me. And I would hate for SOMETHING BAD to happen. Please don't say I'M NOT THAT GIRL. If your husband is a SENTIMENTAL MAN maybe I have a chance. I truly would feel like DANCING THROUGH LIFE if I did win. And perhaps I could even take up DEFYING GRAVITY. THANK GOODNESS I am in Utah this week and not Vegas, because then I would be out of luck. And it would be so WONDERFUL to meet you and Robin and see the play again. Oh ticket, AS LONG AS YOUR MINE, I would be so lucky. It is sometimes true that NO GOOD DEED goes unpunished, but this is not one of those times. And I would hate to have to join a MARCH OF THE WITCH HUNTERS just to try and pursuade you. OK I will stop pestering you now FOR GOOD.

Love THE WIZARD AND I

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

I know i'm kissing up to you but she didn't tell me to.I just want you to pick my mom.and i'm whispering take me please oh well gave it a shot.:)

April said...

Now that is just cruel....getting your daughter to tug at my heart strings!

Less than ONE SHORT DAY before the results....then someone will be POPULAR!!!! I'm excited!!! Are you??? (I know Pat is!)

val of the south said...

I'm sorry other commenters - I didn't mean to dis you all. You may very well have had sucky years too, not just Hamster Chick.

I'm sorry if you did too.

Sincerely,

Valofthesouth

April said...

awwww....Val...you are so sweet! I'm sure that no one took it that way!

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

Yes Val, it is true that my life has sucked a bit this year, but I have a feeling all of us could qualify on a needs basis. It was so kind of you to think of me.

And April, seriously my daughter just INSISTED on posting. She is a bit bored here in Utah with her cousins in school.

And did you love my clever post? Am I too clever or what? And humble also, don't forget humble.
