and it's giveaway day.
what!? the weekend AND a giveaway?
damn, life is good.
allow me to take you back a week. I believe I mentioned at some point…maybe?...that I was attending the so-cal blogger meet-up. it was held in la jolla and there were about 60 lady bloggers there. craziness, I tell you. the gals who organized the event really did a great job and it was a completely new experience. I got to meet a few super cool girls and I got the stink-eye and some shit talking action all in the same day! typical lady qualms.
one really generous aspect of this event were all the giveaways. it seemed we were lucky enough to get some great sponsors and during the second raffle, I won something! (we all won something in the end…but it's still pretty fun to hear your name called)
My prize turned out to be pretty freaking rad. From Orange&Park, a local print shop, I got a screen print of San Diego's surf spots. Behold:
I can appreciate art. I like to hang things on my walls at home. I like to support the locals but here comes the part where you become the winner.
I'm not a big surf gal…plain and simple.
The last time (and maybe third time in life) I went surfing, I came back with bruises, a belly full of salt water and a renewed fear of the ocean. Safe to say, I'm sticking to bays, lakes, ponds, sidewalk and swimming pools for the rest of my adult life. It's a shame because here I've been, all my life, living near the beach. Oh, irony, you kill me.
Where my surfers at?
Where my surf lovers at?
Where my map enthusiasts at?
Holler at your girl and enter to win this dandy piece of snazziness!
Let's take a closer look at it.
