It is no secret that I love to watch TV. I have since I was a little girl. I wake up to the news in the morning, and fall asleep to SportsCenter at night. So, this is a big week for me, the Emmy's are on Sunday night! I always like to do a 'play along at home' ballot, and while I enjoy that I thought it would be fun to get others to play to. So, I'm running my first ever contest!
So let's get to the good stuff first, because this is a self sponsored contest, I figured I would give away a few of my favorite things.
$10 itunes gift card (gotta have my music)
A bag of Orville Redenbacher popcorn (great for TV viewing)
A bag of bite size 3 Musketeers (candy, need I say more?)
A bag of Combo's - Cheddar Cheese Cracker (ummm)
Jelly Bellys (mix it with the popcorn)
Chocolate Covered Peeps (they aren't just for Easter anymore)
Mint Flavored Cocoa (because there is nothing better on a cold night)
Open to US Residents Only.

The Tie Breaker
Just in case we have a tie, please answer the following questions, one point will be awarded for each. Please include these answers in the email with your ballot.
What nominee in the, Lead Actress in a Drama Series, category is the daughter of Jayne Mansfield?
What two nominees, one in, Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, and the other in, Guest Actor in a Comedy Series are married and have two young children?
This question, and this can be found on my website, Hubby and I have a precious kitty kat, what is his name? Trust me this is all over the website, as he is a constant source of amusement for me.
So I hope that you think this is fun, that's really what I'm after here. I will try to live tweet during the broadcast, but we have race tickets for Sunday, and who knows if we will make it home or not!
