100th blog post and a giveaway!!!

PhotobucketBack a few months ago when I started my blog, I had no idea how the whole blogging experience would turn out but 100 posts later I can't imagine not blogging.  So...I figured in celebration of hitting "publish" 100 times...a giveaway was in order.  I've seen some other bloggers do a giveaway of some of their favorite things and thought I'd follow suit.  SO, here is my first giveaway...with three different chances to win and the rules below.  I also wanted to thank all of the wonderful bloggy friends I've met over the last several months that have provided me with support all the way through!!!

Meet the prizes:

$10 Starbucks gift card - For anyone that reads regularly...you know this is one of my favorite things.  And if you're an iced coffee addict like myself, I highly recommend the Iced Coffee Vias that Starbucks now has.  They are easy and delicious!!

The Big Green Purse - This is by far one of my favorite books and is a wonderful resource for all things "green living."  From how to make your own household cleaners to what to buy organic, this book has it covered.  It's a sensible way to live green without breaking the bank or falling victim to the ever increasing "green living" scams (in other words...those highly priced products that claim to be so environmentally friendly but really aren't)

$25 Target gift card - Who doesn't love Target? 

And now for the rules:

**Please post a comment for each entry and if you don't have your email linked to your profile please leave it in the comment so I can find you if you win!!**

Mandatory Entry -  Leave me a comment telling me what you like reading about on my blog!  I post about lots of different things around here and was curious to hear what you like...or maybe what you don't like.

For additional entries -
1. Follow my blog or if you already are...just leave a separate comment in addition to the one above!
2. Blog about this giveaway!
3. Tweet about this giveaway!

This giveaway will close Sunday at midnight and the winner will be announced Monday morning!!

Thanks for the comment on my blog. I picked a perfect day to visit your blog... a giveaway :) I just browsed through your blog and loved reading about your little girl. My husband and I are starting to try in August, so blogs with little ones always catch my eye.

and of course i love reading about Addie but especially love your posts on what baby items you have found most useful and what you don't like. You are ahead of me in the game and it's nice to see what products down the line to buy or stay away from!

The one thing I like about your blog is the variety. It is nice to have that in a blog (as mine is only for Connor, but oh well!)

I love reading all about little Addie - since she's only a couple months older than Abby it helps me with what to expect!

I love reading about the birthday party prep. Plus, your girl is just a few months younger than mine, so we're kind of in the same mom phase.

I love your blog! I love reading about Addie, since mine is within a month of the same age.
And I liked your post about buying part of a cow because it's one of those things I've been "meaning" to do and never following through and now I am :)

Megan said...

And obviously I'm a faithful follower. I mean, duh!

Megan said...

Oh, I also love the info you shared about cloth diapering. I don't use cloth, but a big part of me wishes that I did.
