HOW do you lose two brand new pairs of jeans?

Have you ever lost something and you can SEE IT and you KNOW exactly where you put it, you just can't REMEMBER?

Like poof. It's gone and so is your memory.

I had two gift cards for a free pair of Gap jeans from Gap, GapKids, or BabyGap that I got from the lovely gals in the Brand About Town suite at BlogHer. They were kind to give them to me so I could give them away and share some swag with you all and I made sure to put them in a safe spot. I packed them when we left BlogHer and I remember unpacking them when I got home. But after that, it all becomes kinda hazy.

I just ransacked my house looking for them. Thinking both is this really worth it and how am I going to word my email to Brand About Town that I've lost their jeans.

I checked my car, suitcases, envelopes, five thousand re-usable bags, pockets, purses, the fridge in the garage and under the bathroom sink.

GUESS WHAT? I found them!

In the cereal cabinet. Of course! Right next to the Kashi and honey nut Cheerios.

Don't even ask...

Just leave a comment here if you'd like to win a free pair of jeans ok? I worked REALLY hard for them.

Each card is for a free pair of Gap jeans up to $69.50 value at any Gap, GapKids, BabyGap, & GapMaternity in store, but not online. I just checked and it does say valid in the U.S. only. (I promise my next giveaway will be open to everyone!)

Gap just launched their 1969 Premium Jeans Collection and you can read more here about Patrick Robinson, the creative director of Gap. It's no secret I've long been a fan of Gap Long & Leans (even had a couple pairs in maternity) and I am neither Long nor Lean but they are like magic pants and I pray they never ever take that style away.

I'll choose two winners at random after 11:59 PM Monday August 10.


One comment per person, any old comment will do, nothing else required, yadda yadda. I'm still so super annoyed they were in my cereal cabinet.

Oh life.

  4. Why not? I can always use new clothes - especially since I rarely buy any.

    I do stuff like that all of the time Steph. I find things in the fridge that don't belong there. One time I put something in the sink that was totally not a dirty dish.

    Ugh. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  5. Umm... this person right here needs new jeans because she's finally getting that post-baby bangin' body back.... sort of.

    K? Thx, you rock. :)

    ReplyDelete
  6. I'd LOVE to win! I lost over $200 worth of Bed Bath and Beyond gift cards that I received as shower gifts when I got married over 3 years ago, and they have not shown up, so yay for you! You found them!

    ReplyDelete
  7. My butt needs a pick me up and a nice pair of Gap jeans would do the trick...

    :-)

    ReplyDelete
  8. My post-baby body would so love a new pair of jeans!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I could always use a new pair of jeans. I have a few pairs of the long&lean (im not lean but they work) :)
    My husband car keys were missing for a few days-we ended up finding them in the box of detergent. no idea how they got there?

    thanks for the chance

  10. Gap Jeans are my fav! I'm totally been a Long and Lean girl too as long as I can remember!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Oooh I'd like some jeans--all mine are ripped!

    ReplyDelete
  12. OOOoooh! I love reading your blog & I never win anything & I would love to win a gift card to Gap to buy my beauty girl a pair of jeans. I don't buy myself many clothes anymore, but I do love shopping for my little (3rd grade, already!) girl.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'm trying to think of a great one-liner about cereal and jeans but it's not coming together for me so I'll just say Yea! Fall into the Gap and all that.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Long and Leans are my favorite, too! I wore them (in maternity) EVERY DAY when I was pregnant.

    I'd love to get a new pair in NON maternity now that I've (almost) lost all my babyweight! I think this last 5 (okay 10) lbs is here to stay.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I read your blog all the time. This is my 1st comment. I just lost 45 pounds and could really use a new pair of jeans. I love the gap.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I could really use some new jeans. I had a baby almost a year ago and I am just starting to feel like me again.

    ReplyDelete
  17. "Gap Jeans" caught my eye. I just bought a pair from the new line and I AM IN LOVE. The denim is so soft and comfortable. I too have long been a fan of Gap jeans. I didn't think they could get better. Oh, but they did.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Gap jeans are fabulous!

    As is your blog. It is one of my favorite reads.

    ReplyDelete
  19. The cereal cabinet, that is like the time in college Casey and his roommates lost the remote to the T.V. and found it in the freezer the next day.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Maybe that's where I lost my engagement ring?! ;) I would LURVE a new pair of jeans.

    Would also lurve to meet up again some day if/when you are up for it!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I need new jeans in a bad way...fingers crossed!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I need new jeans because I've lost weight! Yeah me!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I would love some new jeans! We recently found our remote control in the fridge! (I blame my husband for that!)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I just hate it when I put something some place safe and then can't remember where the safe place is. Glad you found them.

    I would love to win. I really need some new jeans. Haven't bought a pair since just after my youngest was born and he's now 3!

    ReplyDelete
  25. The cereal cabinet? Great story! :-) Would love some Gap jeans!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'd love to win a pair of jeans because none of mine fit. We've been broke since my husband returned from iraq a year ago today and its also our two year wedding anniversary today. And he's preparing to go to iraq again :(

  27. i could you some long and lean... ~weak smile~

  29. Cereal and Jeans are two of my favorite things!!! I would love to win them! pick me random! :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I would love new jeans since I finally have my body back after having my baby a few months ago!

    ReplyDelete
  31. A good pair of jeans can you make you feel like a millions bucks...even when the house is a mess, the dishes are stacked and the kids run amuck. Lord knows all us moms love to feel like a million bucks, at least once in a while!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Glad you found them. Losing things is so frustrating!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I just lost some weight (went down 2 sizes!) and I'm in need of some new jeans for the fall/winter!!

    Thank you, Thank you! You're the best!!

  34. I need new jeans since having the baby!! I LOVE the Gap also!

    ReplyDelete
  35. LOVE long and lean too. Those are the only jeans I wear and have worn since 2001.
    PS - I found my car keys in the freezer once.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh, yeah--I just lost my baby weight plus an extra ten pounds so these couldn't come at a better time! I'm actually a skirt-wearing kind of girl, but I bet they would look great paired with a mini dress or long tunic. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  37. I hope I get picked! Gap are the jeans that work best for me. And I'm needing new jeans!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I would love to win a pair of GAP jeans... my confession - I've never owned a pair :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. I haven't had a pair of new jeans in so long. . .thanks for the great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Rats. I hate having to waste time that way. I especially hate that I am always wasting time that way!!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oooh. I could use something that makes me look long and lean. Count me in!

    ReplyDelete
  42. oh my, I would a new pair of jeans! I haven't been clothes shopping in over a year!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I would have told you to check in the fridge because that's always where we find the phone, remote, glasses, etc. :) I also love Long & Leans, they fit perfect every time!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I am having a craptastic day. Jeans would be nice. Even though I would have to buy them in my post-baby-not-really-my-size. Sigh.
    Thanks Steph

    ReplyDelete
  45. Blame it on the effects of having kids. Your memory is never the same after kids...

    I'd love a pair of jeans, mine don't fit any more. :(

    ReplyDelete
  46. oh, you are funny. sorry, though, i'm sure that was frustrating. i put things in odd places sometimes...
    remote in the bread cupboard....bread in the fridge (we don't usually keep it there!)

    but, usually, i do those things when i'm pregnant. ; )

    ReplyDelete
  47. This is me! I once put my keys on top of my car (not my car keys obviously) and drove off. I heard a loud sound but thought nothing of it. I arrived at work...about a 35 minute drive on the Interstate and found my keys in the space between the trunk and the back window! Talk about luck. Vowed never to put anything on top of my car again. Did it again a few days later and found my keys in the middle of the road.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I do that all the time. I KNOW I put something important in a safe place, but then can't find it.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I need jeans desperately! Mine are old and fit badly.

    ReplyDelete
  50. No need to enter me in the competition...I'm in the UK :)

    My baby brain is about as logical as yours!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Thanks again for your wonderful posts and for giving me a smile during my precious few quiet moments each day. :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. I found the box of aluminum foil in the fridge last week. Yeah. Nobody will 'fess up, either. But I KNOW it wasn't me. ;o)

    ReplyDelete
  53. SO glad you found them now and not 2 months from now!
    My little girl is now 8 months old and I am in DIRE need of new jeans.......for ME!!!!
    I have been a lurker for awhile now, this is my first comment. I super enjoy your blog.
    Thanks for the chance.

  54. I'd love to win! The busier we get, the more I forget... Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Ooooh great contest, I would love to win! LOL at the story too, totally sounds like something that would happen to me! And I don't even have kids yet! =) Love your blog Steph...

    ReplyDelete
  56. given i have no jeans that fit after having D-man i could use something, i usually only by Gap Long & Lean they look great IMO. and i always lose everything, i'd lose my head if it weren't attached. seriously that's not just a saying for me.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I had a baby shortly after you and haven't bought many new clothes since! I'd love a new pair of jeans! :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. I don't wear pants, but my husband looks HOT in jeans ... therefore I'd love to win that card ;)

    ReplyDelete
  59. I take it your give-away is only for people in America? :(

    I have your site added to my favorites tab and pop in everyday to read your blogs. You have a fantastic way with words Steph, and your children? wow, they are adorable!

    I am in the prosess of losing wieght, over 30lbs so far, only another... 30 more to go and would love to wear jeans again, its been a while (11 long years in skirts!)

    Kind wishes,

  60. I would love to win...I would probably spend them on my grandkids, of course. I love Gap. I have a feeling that Ivy must have found them on the floor and was playing with them in the cabinet? Glad you found them.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I desperately need a new pair of jeans. I am down to a single pair, since my dog out out the crotch in all my others for some reason. Including my maternity jeans.

    ReplyDelete
  62. If you have a Gap near you or want to give it to someone that does, please feel free to enter!! :)

    Steph

    ReplyDelete
  63. One of the parenting magazines just ranked GapMaternity as their favorite jeans! I hope I win :-)

    ReplyDelete
  64. wow, this would be awesome. my post-baby body could really use some new jeans.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Oh the places we leave things!! I would love a pair of jeans!!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Oh, I forgot to add my email addy! "Just incase" :)

  67. As I keep working out and running 5k's after the birth of my second daughter (born April 29,2009) I could surely use a new pair of jeans!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Oh, I'd love some new jeans! I can't quite make it into my pre-maternity jeans, so a new pair would totally rock!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Oh, fun giveaway!

    I absolutely hate it when I lose stuff and I KNOW I put it somewhere safe. Two months ago I lost my calendar...I know...It was so sad, and I still haven't found it.

    On Tuesday, my husband came over to me with a bottle of all-purpose cleaner and asked, "Is there a reason this was in the fridge?"

    No, honey, you are just married to a very distractable wife.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Loose, oh I mean misplace things all the time, so I feel your pain. If I win I will try really hard to not put them in a place 'where I won't loose them'.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Yay Gap!

    Glad you found them, hope I win! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  72. they are bringing back the 1969's? OMG! that is the best style ever. YAY!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Oh man, Long and Lean are my FAVORITE jeans!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I was just complaining today that I don't fit into my jeans, and I am not sure why.

    ReplyDelete
  75. My BFF swears by the Long and Lean Jeans and I've always wanted to try them but I'm a cheapskate when it comes to buying clothes. *crosses fingers*


    And don't worry- I've done that PLENTY of times with gift cards and the like. The same BFF previously mentioned lost gift cards in her house for a couple of years before finding them.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Ok I really need to win this because I have a sneaky suspicion that after I pop this little chicky out I will be a completely different size from the waist down.
    Girls....Some people say you carry them all in the front. I say you carry them in the butt! Just call me J-Lo! :)

    ReplyDelete
  77. I would love to win! I do need some new jeans to fit my new postbaby body! :)

    ReplyDelete
  78. I could use a really good pair of jeans!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Would love to have some jeans to fit over my now post pregnancy hips... none of my others fit. Boo.

    ReplyDelete
  80. I laughed at this, but only because I did something very similar lately. I knew I put some fabric back in the spot where I was looking for it. I distinctly remembered being very specific about it, but it was not there. I searched high and low, in every drawer, and finally turned around to find that, in trying to be purposeful and efficient, I had already taken the fabric out and set it next to the sewing machine. I kind of wanted to cry after that.

    I'd love to win this, because Gap jeans actually fit me well.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I really need new jeans, but have never had luck with Gap jeans...maybe this time!

    ReplyDelete
  82. i would love a new pair! mine are getting kind of saggy in the butt...

    ReplyDelete
  83. I LOVE Gap Jeans too. Favorite pair? My long and lean maternity ones. :)

    ReplyDelete
  84. I totally need new jeans! I will even promise to keep them in the cereal cabinet, if that would help. :)

    ReplyDelete
  85. I need new jeans! I have one that fits properly and a bunch that don't. My kids have done quite the number on my lower half. I'm in that slender but soft stage, sigh!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Who wouldn't want new jeans? Especially when you blow the entire clothing budget on the kids. :)

    ReplyDelete
  87. They will match perfectly with my denim-strap mei tai! (tee hee!)

    ReplyDelete
  88. um, yes please! They're my favorite too- I just pulled out my maternity pair :)

    ReplyDelete
  89. Oooh- I love the Long and Leans too- I have a pair of maternity Long and Leans too- just the time that you really need to feel both long and lean! Love the blog!!!

    ReplyDelete
  90. New jeans would be lovely! Going to be needing them when my waist starts expanding =)

    I find my keys in the fridge a lot these days!

    ReplyDelete
  91. Definitely wanna enter please!

  92. So, is the gift card good in Canada?

    ReplyDelete
  93. I would like the jeans, for the simple face that I havent bought jeans in over 2 years.

    ReplyDelete
  94. I just wish I would put things in the place where I will first be looking for them. Whenever I find what I am looking for, I try to go back to the first place I looked when trying to find them. As I get older, misplacing things becomes more frequent especially if I've put them in the "safe place where they won't get lost."

    ReplyDelete
  95. I recently found your blog and really enjoy reading it. I have never owned a pair of Gap jeans and now that I have kids I usually spend money on them and not me! I would love to win a pair of jeans.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Oooo!!!! Oooo!!! Oooo!!! I need jeans! I will soon be at the ackward not-pregnant-anymore-but-not-back-in-shape-yet phase and a new pair of jeans would be AWESOME. :)

    ReplyDelete
  97. I NEED new jeans. I am all holy over here. Crossing my fingers! Glad you found them. I once found my car keys in the fridge which was funny in that I PUT them there so I wouldn't forget to bring a dish to pass to a party. Sadly, I FORGOT where I put the keys, until I grabbed the other car's keys and went to get the dish to pass that I REMEMBERED to bring.

  100. Woohoo - new jeans! Is it wrong to admit I'd use it to shop for my toddler? Little girls' clothes are so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  101. I can't WAIT for jeans weather! This is my first time to your blog. Love that the cards were by the cereal!

    ReplyDelete
  102. I love gap jeans. Probably wouldn't use it for myself but will spoil my 16 month old daughter with a new pair if I win.

    My 16 mont old is often with me while on the computer and she now says Ivy when she sees her on your blog:)

    ReplyDelete
  103. Lady, I have soooo been there. Keys in the freezer, anyone?

    Gap jeans do fantastic things to my butt. Like, things that make it appear that I've never birthed a child, which, of course, is a huge fat lie. I birthed two. And then my ass got huge. Thank you, Gap jeans. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  104. oh i know the days of not being able to find things when you just know where you put them! mommy brain, i call it ;)

    ReplyDelete
  105. Oh yippie! Gap jeans are.my.favorite. The only ones that don't loose their shape and grow two sizes after trying them on in the fitting room. I wear all of mine to holes... Thanks, Steph! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  106. if i ever lose something ... i'm totally looking in the cereal cabinet first ...
    oh yeah ... and i really REALLY need a new pair of maternity jeans. happened to give away all of my maternity clothing about 2 months before getting a lil' surprise baby in the works.

    ReplyDelete
  107. How crazy/wacky/totally awesome LOL

    And I sure would love to enter. I'm still looking for that perfect pair of jeans.

  108. I am a poor college student and I love jeans so pick me!

    ReplyDelete
  109. LOL... the cereal cabinet. I think we all do something like that from time to time.

    Ahhh... Gap jeans. My fav pairs are their 1969 limited addition from a couple years ago, like butta'! Unforunately they are also pre-Corinne days are sitting on the pre-Corinne side of my closet (Corinne would be my 9m old). A new pair would be Oh so nice :)

    ReplyDelete
  110. I'm dying for a pair of new jeans... I can never find any that fit right, but Gap's normally do... but they're more than I like to spend (I normally shop at Target...)

    ReplyDelete
  111. nothing beats a pair of gap jeans.. except maybe if they are free :)
    you are too sweet.

    ReplyDelete
  112. I feel you, babe. I do stuff like that all the time. (I would have found my gift cards in the fridge.)

    ReplyDelete
  113. Oh Steph, I do this ALL the time. I'm surprised I remember Emma most days!!

    And I am SO hoping to win one of these b/c I lurve Gap Long & Lean.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I am on day 5 of losing my baby weight so I NEED some shiny new jeans to keep me going. Crossing my fingers!!

    ReplyDelete
  115. Would love a new pair of jeans. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  116. i lose stuff all the time. but would be happy to find one of these in my inbox!

    ReplyDelete
  117. Oh, my, when my hubby & I were engaged, I 'lost' a $200 gift card that someone had given us as a wedding present - I think it may have been stolen, but maybe we'll find it someday in an old box of college notes. :) He was very forgiving about it, though.

    ReplyDelete
  118. That is SO funny. I find things in random places too - I so understand.

    ReplyDelete
  119. I just checked and it does say valid in the U.S. only. (I promise my next giveaway will be open to everyone!)

    Steph

    ReplyDelete
  120. Oh, I would soooo be the one to lose my pants. NO- not in that way! I would LOVE to win a pair. :D

    ReplyDelete
  121. I can use some new jeans. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  122. i'm a big fan of the long and lean, too. would love to win, just had a baby and could use a new pair!

    ReplyDelete
  123. Oh man, I could really use a new pair of jeans. I finally lost the rest of the baby weight and am tired of the same old dumpy pair I've been wearing.

    ReplyDelete
  124. I do that all the time! Last week i hunted everywhere for a hairclip I wanted to wear and finally found it - in the bottom of a box of books. Why? I have no idea, but I'd point towards the kids. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  125. VERY funny story. A least you found them;)

    Missy

    ReplyDelete
  126. I hate it when I do that! And I always find what I've misplaced in the oddest spots.

    ReplyDelete
  127. Do you know why I read this blog? Because you admit to mistakes, like we all make. And I'm pretty sure your heart is at least 99 % gold.

    I am trying to lose weight so I hope to have a fantastic need for new jeans.

    ReplyDelete
  128. I need new jeans soooo badly! :-) What a great giveaway.

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  129. i bought my first pair of gap jeans when i was pregnant last year and loved them! i'd love some non-maternity jeans!

  132. Just blame it on the baby! Everytime I can't find something I figure Cooper must be the one responsible (although it usually ends up being Grace's fault).

    I'd love some new jeans!

    ReplyDelete
  133. I love their long and lean jeans too. Wore a pair to work today in fact. :)

    ReplyDelete
  134. i would love nothing more than to replace my ratty old jeans with a nice pair! i've worn them so long, both pairs that fit PERFECTLY now have massive holes in the knees and threadbare thighs...

    ReplyDelete
  135. Ohh, new jeans are always nice!!

    Adventuresofanalicat@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  136. I have put things in the strangest places too and it drives me nuts. So glad you found them.

    ReplyDelete
  137. I do that all the time! What a random place to keep the gift cards! I found my car keys the other day inside of the freezer. I have no clue how they got in there either.

    ReplyDelete
  138. That's hilarious they ended up next to the cereal! At least as moms we are usually able to find where we randomly left items... my husband can never seem to find anything even if it is in a rational location! Glad you found them!

    ReplyDelete
  139. I want the jeans!

    ReplyDelete
  140. Ha! We lost a remote a couple of months ago, when I was uber pregnant. Needless to say, it was VERY important that we had a remote, to save me having to waddle my gigantic self up to the TV to change the channel. Also probably needless to say, we never found the remote. After three days stuck in a remoteless Hell, we finally broke down and bought a new one from our cable company. Never did find it, either! I'm glad you found your jeans, and I'd love love love to win a pair!

    ReplyDelete
  141. Oh, how I love Gap jeans! For years, they were the only brand I could wear.

    ReplyDelete
  142. I'm glad you found them.

    And I didn't make it to the suite on time, so I didn't get my giftcard. I was super bummed about that. It was really the only swag I was seeking because I heart me some Gap!

    ReplyDelete
  143. Since I'm still wearing maternity jeans, I've got to enter. When will these extra pounds come off so I can fit into my jeans. Or maybe I should just suck it up and admit defeat.

    I'm def. entering! Hope this counts!!

  145. Hi Steph,
    I would love to win a gift card!

    They probably don't make them in my size BUT I know they come in our granddaughters' sizes.

    BTW....cute story!

    Years ago I put my purse on the roof of our car, so I could buckle one of the kids' carseats. I started down the road and couldn't figure out why total strangers were waving and honking at me. I FINALLY figured it out though...thank goodness!

    Another time I was balancing my bank statement and I was short a LOT of money. Come to find out I had the cash in a bank envelope and it had fallen under my bucket seat in the car. I was sooooo thankful to find that money.
    I was pregnant at the time and man was I crying!

    Take care,
    Kim

  148. I live next to the border, so I'll come over with my new gift certificate and shop!

    I lose things like that ALL the time! Kind of funny, but kind of not. I always try to stay calm and pray Lord,just help me find them!

  149. I once put the cereal in the fridge and the milk in the pantry. I blame pregnancy brain. Would LOVE some new jeans for me or my boy!

  150. Steph, I REALLY need new jeans. I have about 4 pair that still don't fit since I had Elias - and that was a year ago. Keeping my fingers crossed that this comment gets picked. xo

  151. Yesterday as Sweetpea and I walked in from the car I carried in her travel changing pad to refill - I can't find it anywhere now...we don't have a large house and it's relatively clean - I can totally relate.

  152. Gap jeans are amazing. And I need some, because my current jeans kinda sorta fall off my booty. And hey! I'm not complaining about that. But I'd be really happy if I did win. :)

    ReplyDelete
  153. I love Gap jeans...they are the only, and I do mean ONLY, jeans that even come close to fitting me correctly!

    ReplyDelete
  154. I would love to have a new pair of jeans to look forward to after this baby girl makes her debut in the next week or two!

    ReplyDelete
  155. We lost two pairs of jeans, in my husbands closet.

    I already follow you on twitter and am a google reader subscriber.

    I love new jeans. And I love the Gap.

  156. That's too funny!

    I would love to win a new pair of jeans. I have plenty of maternity jeans, but I'm sure I could use a new pair once the baby is born!

    ReplyDelete
  157. I absolutely cannot remember the last time that I bought myself a NEW pair of jeans! Thrifted? Yes, but new, just for me??? No memory of that. I would adore the chance to buy jeans for myself . . . .

    thanks for the chance!

  158. I would love some new jeans! Baby #4 is now a year and I need some new clothes for my ever changing body!

  161. Ooohh.. I could use some new jeans too. Mine don't seem to be fitting lately. I am not sure if it is the chocolate I have been eating, or maybe the ice cream, or maybe the hot dogs, chips and soda....hmmm

    ReplyDelete
  162. Well, since you went to all that trouble...

    ReplyDelete
  163. I could use a new pair of jeans. Thanks for your search! :)

  164. I misplaced Jeremiah's birth certificate after football sign ups... I still can't find it.

    I would love new jeans!!!

    ReplyDelete
  165. I am not entering to win because I got some when we were there. I have to say though, they are my new favorite jeans. I got the Long and Lean and they are SO fantastic. I even wore them on our 15 hour drive home, they are THAT comfy. :)

    ReplyDelete
  166. Jeans, oh how I love thee. I have found keys in the frig, so the cereal is not too bad :-)

    ReplyDelete
  167. I would love a new pair of jeans because I am taking back control of my life and happiness and so far that has meant losing 12 lbs which means that eventually nothing will fit me.

    Plus I LOVE the fact that you found them with the cereal.

    ReplyDelete
  168. I hate it when I lose things! One time I found the TV remote in the car???? I still don't know why it was there or who put it there!

    ReplyDelete
  169. i cannot even begin to tell you how many times i find things in my pantry cupboard (what i call the big cupboard i keep all pantry type stuff in including cereal). the only thing i can't find in there is the stuff that should be in there -- like the cashews?!

    ok, and i could use some jeans. mine just developed an unsightly tear in a not at all ladylike area and i am so not that brave.

  170. I have a 6 week old baby. I'm not leaving items in odd places, but when I nurse my baby I fall into some kind of "haze". It's like the Bermuda Triangle! My older children can run around and do practically anything they want, right in front of me, and somehow I don't even *see* them.

    Perhaps that's for the best. . .
    ;)

  171. I need new jeans. Still can't fit into my pre-baby jeans yet! UGH!!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  175. Nothing worse than misplacing something and driving yourself crazy as you tear up the house searching for it. Thanks for the chance to enter!

    ReplyDelete
  176. Life with kids is so crazy! I never know where I'll find things around here.

    I love, love my Gap jeans (both regular & maternity). I would love to have another pair of maternity jeans.

    ReplyDelete
  177. This would be amazing for me. My only jeans that looked decent have finally given it up and now I need some new to me ones. Only I have a hard time finding those, so some new ones would be even better!

    Thanks for looking so hard and hope the cereal cabinet always turns up what you need :)

  179. Ooh, I pretty much always need new jeans. Cross fingers!

    ReplyDelete
  180. Oh, I could totally use a new pair of jeans for myself. Haven't had a new pair in years.

    ReplyDelete
  181. Hey! Ivy is BEAUTIFUL!!! But I bet somewhere inside the little darling already knows that! And by the way, did you get a new camera? If so what kind? And what happened to your old one? I read all your posts...I thought!

    My 16 year old could really use some new jeans since I have been laid off :-)

    ReplyDelete
  182. I once found my wallet in the freezer. This happened when my daughter was newborn, so obviously it was from sleep deprivation, but for the life of me I can not recall what I got out of the freezer. I love gap jeans and wear them until they fall apart, which is where I am now.

  183. i would love a new pair of jeans!!!!

  185. I have a toddler and our second on the way, and I can't remember anything anymore. I can only imagine I'll become exponentially more forgetful with each new child!

    I'm in the market for some maternity jeans for this fall, so I appreciate a chance at your giveaway!

  187. That sounds like exactly where something like gift cards would have ended up in my house.

    ReplyDelete
  188. LOL- Don't you know, putting something "In a good place" is synonymous with "never to be seen again"? In my family, putting something in a good place is considered a joke.

  189. I would love to win a new pair of jeans. I can't remember the last time I bought new jeans for myself. This will be my treat to myself after I lose my baby weight when baby #3 arrives this October. I love your blog, by the way!

    ReplyDelete
  190. I am commenting simply because where you found those gift cards sounds alot like something I would do!! At least you found them, right?? And I LOVE Gap jeans :)
