Blogiversary Giveaway-Time's Up!

363 days of blogging. 298 posts. Man, I talk a lot! To celebrate this milestone, I am having a giveaway of some of my favorite things! Here's what's up for grabs:

Let's take a closer look, shall we?

We have two of my favorite books by two of my favorite authors...Nature Girl by Carl Hiaasen and Mercy by Jodi Picoult. A DVD of Madagascar because I like to move it, move it. A John Deere tote, a $2 dollar bill for good luck (or that's what I've been told anyway) a Tide-Stick To Go, a bag of the best.chocolate.ever. We also have a Pocket Pac hand sanitizer in one of my favorite scents, Midnight Pomegranate, a bottle of Dancing Waters lotion, a bottle of Moonlight Path body cream, a Starbucks to-go cup, and last but not least, a $10 Starbucks gift card. Phew! That was a lot of stuff crammed in that little bag!

You know you want it all, right?! Here's how to win:

1. Leave a comment. Easy, right?

2. Follow me, if you so choose, for one more entry. Please leave a separate comment telling me you either already follow me...or another comment after you choose to follow. I guess in reality you could un-follow me once the contest is over, but that would just be mean.

3. If you want to post about the giveaway, have at it! Then leave another comment letting me know you did.

Contest closes at midnight on January 4th. Winner will be announced on January 5th. (That will give me something to look forward to as I go back to school!)

AND if that's not enough for you, my IRLBFF over at Finding Normal is having her own blogiversary giveaway! And because I copied most of her post regarding rules and dates...it will be easy to enter!


Pin It!

Yeah! I'm first!

First off, congrats on your one year anniversary. How exciting!

Please enter me. I would really like the JD bag--super cute! And, I already follow you so sign me up twice!

Denise said...

Congrats on the anniversary! Please put my name in for the giveaway....I would love to win, all that stuff is awesome!

Finding Normal said...

UGH. He just erased my entire comment. I think it said something like...
I spy a Starbucks card I recognize. Let's see...who gave that to me? Ah, the boy who is afraid of you. Sounds fair. Love that tote! Matching wallet?
Noah is pouting--"someone got Madagascar. I want Madagascar. That's a good movie. I really like Madagascar. I want Madagascar." And now he's headed off, mumbling about wanting Madagascar. LOL
Great giveaway!

John Deere Mom said...

LOL. We got 2 Madagascars and my kids won't watch it! And the Starbucks card you gave me was spent the first day! LOL I got MANY a Starbucks card for Christmas...getting a little jittery from all the caffeine!

Leslie said...

How did you make your background? It is very cute!

amelia bedelia said...

Sign me up!! I am already a follower, does that count??? Happy Blog Anniversary!

Christine said...

Wow, what a great giveaway! I love Starbucks and who can say no to chocolate?! LOL My daughter just loves the "move it, move it" song so I'm keeping my fingers crossed we win this one since she lost her Madagascars movie.

I am a follower and I did make a mention of your blog on my blog (romanticcottage.blogspot.com).

Thanks for all your great posts!

Rene said...

Congrats on your anniversary! I'm so glad you like to talk a lot because I like to read a lot. My life is a little chaotic right now so I love reading how everyone else lives and then pretending I'm living that life. Is that something I should be getting some therapy for? Oh, well, just add it to the list!

Keep writing and I'll keep reading!
