Deal Seeking Mom Birthday Celebration Winners

by Tara Kuczykowski on June 16, 2010 · 13 comments

Thank you all so much for celebrating Deal Seeking Mom's birthday with me yesterday!

Congratulations to Ashlee (wolfe.ashlee@...), Jessica (jalundgr@...) and Monica (mosam11@...), who each found one of the hidden buttons, and congratulations to Kristie (kash_30_82@...) for being the first to answer all 10 questions correctly. You should have each received information on how to claim your prize!

If you're wondering about the answers to yesterday's trivia, here you go:

What breed are my two dogs? Italian Greyhounds

What sport did I play in college? rugby

What type of surgery did I have last year? screws in my foot to repair torn ligaments

What is my frozen drink of choice? margaritas

Is my youngest child a boy or a girl? a boy

How did my husband and I choose our kids' names (and our dogs' names too!)? they're all related to baseball

How far apart were my first two children born? 12 months

What type of car did I have to give up when I got pregnant with #3? 1997 30th Anniversary Edition Z28 Chevy Camaro

What did I give my husband on our wedding day? a hinged silver-plated fortune cookie Christmas ornament with a custom fortune inside

Grab the URL of any post from the first day at Deal Seeking Mom and paste it here: (there were many to choose from, but here are the ones that are still valid or useful today!)

Thanks again for playing along. Deal Seeking wouldn't be a success without each of you, and I'm looking forward to another great year!

I (winner of one of the hidden buttons) have the same first part of the email as the winner, Kristie, for the 10 questions?


2 Tara Kuczykowski June 16, 2010 at 12:13 pm

I'm sorry, that was a copy & paste error. You won the $50 Sephora gift card, and Kristie won the trivia quiz. I've updated the post with her email address!

why do Kristie and Monica have the same username? Also can you post the times that these were found and where? There is a lack of transparency about this contest that I find disturbing.

Would also like to know what time the winner of the 10 questions was submitted. I had an EARLY entry, but before the name and e-mail section was fixed, and before one of the questions was changed.

Hi Amy!

As you know, the survey originally didn't include a name and email address field. I fixed that as soon as I realized the issue and emailed everyone who had left a comment to let them know that they should resubmit.

At that time, I also clarified the question about the margarita so that there wouldn't be confusion over what I was looking for, since I've mentioned several different beverages on the blog that I love.

The winning answers were submitted at 11:36 am. I see that you resubmitted your answers at 12:02 pm, but you have "torn ligaments in ankle" and "Pumpkin Spice Lattes", both of which are incorrect anyway.

I'm sorry for any confusion!


6 Donna June 16, 2010 at 12:15 pm

Tara, why did I think that you had a Border Collie and a Shar-pei?


7 Monica S June 16, 2010 at 12:24 pm

Thanks, Tara :)


8 Kristie June 16, 2010 at 12:31 pm

Thanks Tara for this wonderful website! I have been using it about 8 or 9 months now and LOVE it! I am always telling my friends and family about it. When I got the e-mail that said I had won on the quiz I was super excited! My first win on any blog's giveaways. The coupons were already saving me money, but winning the giftcard was the icing on the cake! Thanks again!


9 Erica June 16, 2010 at 1:17 pm

I also had an early entry before the form changed, and I'm pretty sure I resubmitted only minutes after it was fixed. I put down pumpkin spice latte because before it had only said drink of choice, and that was the only beverage that specifically stated "drink of choice" in a post. I wish I knew that the question had changed. Will there be other quizzes like this in the future?


10 Tara Kuczykowski June 16, 2010 at 10:31 pm

I'm sorry, Erica. I wasn't trying to change the question -- I was just trying to clarify it because I realized when I was adding the name and email fields that it was a little too vague. I thought the quiz was a lot of fun, and I hope everyone else did too, so I do hope to do more of them in the future!


11 Amber June 16, 2010 at 2:32 pm

Darn it - why did I think you had Daschunds?! *sulks*


12 Tiffany June 16, 2010 at 6:32 pm

Tara- thanks for the fun yesterday. My family caught something horrible and we are on week 2 no being sick, so all I did yesterday was play DSM Birthday game and sleep.

Good distraction



13 Kristine June 16, 2010 at 10:26 pm

Aww I missed this because it was MY birthday as well yesterday. Officially 30 now!
