Just for fun: ‘Girls’ Night In’ Photo Contest

Do you have a great picture of you and your friends hanging out that you’d like to share? Good news: I have three awesome prizes to award.


The woes on Wall Street—and the slump on your street—may up the risk of fractured friendships. With the economic downturn, many of us are finding that we will need to work more and harder—just to maintain our current lifestyle. It is obvious each time we buy a container of milk, purchase toiletries, or fill up at the gas station. As a result, there’s less money for eating out, taking girlfriend getaways, and visiting friends who live out-of-town.


We need to find creative ways to bring friends together on the cheap, to support one another and celebrate friendships. Whether it’s organizing a pot-luck dinner, planning to watch a first-time-on-TV movie, or staging an informal get-together to catch up and gab, it’s important for women to create and maintain rituals to nurture our friendships.


I’m delighted that Orville Redenbacher’s Gourmet Popcorn has partnered with me to award prizes to 3 of my loyal blog readers who submit the best pictures of ‘A Girls’ Night In.’


Each prize includes an Orville Redenbacher popcorn bowl; a supply of Orville Redenbacher’s newest popcorn, Natural Lime & Salt popcorn (pairs well with margaritas), a picture frame and cocktail napkins: perfect ingredients for your next Girls’ Night In.


Contest rules:

  • Enter your best picture. It need not be recent—pictures of childhood friends welcome. Each entry must show two or more close friends enjoying each other’s company, at home or away (after all, there was a day when we had more money to spend ☺.)
  • With your entry, include the first name of each woman shown in the picture and send your own name, snail mail address, and email address to me, so Orville Reddenbacher can mail the prize to your home.
  • All pictures and accompanying information must be emailed to: [email protected]. By submitting a picture you agree to allow me to use your photograph on blogs and/or in books about female friendships.
  • All entries must be submitted by November 9th, 2008. The photos will be judged by a small committee of my best friends. Please enter the contest and email this contest announcement link to your friends. The three prize winners will be announced on November 15th.
