Mamma Mia! I'm having a Giveaway!

CONTEST CLOSED as of January 14, 2009. See the WINNER above. :) It was lots of fun, guys!

Call me crazy. Call me what you want. I love the movie Mamma Mia. Maybe it's because I saw it for the first time with my mom. It was her third time seeing the flick in the theaters, and she warned me that I might want to get up and dance in the aisles. Ok, maybe not the aisles....but I admit that I was bouncing in my seat. Mom warned me that it was the ultimate chick flick, and a perfect movie for Mom and daughter to see together. I admit, I got a little teary listening to Meryl Streep sing "Slipping Through my Fingers," sitting there with my own mom and thinking about my oldest daughter who is suddenly wanting to borrow my clothes (don't worry--she only borrows my shoes and shirts. There's no way we could share the same pants!). I laughed out loud during the middle of the song "Lay All Your Love on Me" (if you've seen it, you'll know why). I felt an incredible bond of womanhood during "Dancing Queen." See, I'm smiling just thinking about it.

The movie made me laugh. Out loud. It made me cry. It made me dance. It made me drag my husband out to watch it with me again in the theaters. He enjoyed it, but probably not as much as I did.

Last week, I found a coupon and was determined to use it before it expired....tomorrow! I went to 4 different stores. Two didn't have it in stock, and the other two would not accept the coupon because "it didn't come from our website." Buloney! But I was not ready to give up! Yesterday, I headed out to Target with a Christmas gift card in hand and was thrilled to find that not only did they have it in stock, but it was on super sale AND they took the coupon! Yay for Target!! I guess I must have had sticky fingers, because I picked up two. Now YOU can enjoy the fun along with me. And when you watch it at home, it's OK to get up and dance along.

Yes, you read that right. I am giving away my other copy! I'm even going to throw in a bag of popcorn to eat while you watch it. Invite your girlfriends over and anjoy it with some friends. No, I am not getting paid to write this post or give this movie away. It is funded purely by my craziness.


All you have to do is leave me a comment. Tell me--Have you seen the movie? Did you love it? Did you hate it? (I'm sure there are plenty of you out there). What is your favorite song from the movie?

Please either 1) include your email address so I can contact you, 2) email me, or 3) make your email accessible from blogger so I can contact you. Thanks!

For extra entries, Follow me (and then post a comment that you are following me).

Want another chance? Blog or tweet about the giveaway (yep--you guessed it! Come back and comment again whenever you have done either one of those things--please leave a link).

I'll keep this open til midnight next Wednesday (January 14) and then I'll pick a random number and announce the winner on Thursday the 15th. Sound good? Winner has 7 days to claim their prize and send me their contact info. Otherwise....I pick another number.
