A Big Thank You and a GIVEAWAY!!

Thursday, June 10, 2010

Yes, you heard me right... a giveaway from yours truly to say a huge Thank You to all my loyal readers and followers. I happened to glance down at my follower link the other day on my blog and noticed I had just reached 400 followers--which calls for an uber:big WOO HOO in my book!
When I started this blogging journey in April 2008, I never dreamed anyone--let alone 400 people--would care anything about what I had to say. I have always had a passion for writing and authoring a blog about my life has helped me put words to some important things that I have personally gone through these past few years--heartbreak, loss of friendships, finding "the one", getting saved, best friends getting married, buying a home, getting engaged, running my first 1/2 marathon, and planning my own wedding {among other things of course}.
So thanks to all of you from the bottom of my heart for all your sweet words of encouragment, comments, and kindness--it makes me happy to know that maybe--just maybe--some of the things I blog about have helped you find a new recipe for dinner, jump start a new workout routine, find some great deals on fun fashion, add a few favorite quotes to your list, and perhaps give you a little food for thought in between, too =)

Now On To The Fun Part...The Giveaway!!
Some of you may or not have heard of CSN Stores... basically, it's a one-stop shop for anything and everything you could possibly need. With more than 200 online boutiques for your shopping pleasure, the options are endless. CSN contacted me to do a giveaway for a $40 giftcard to one of my lovely blog friends (open to US and Canadian readers)... here are some of my current favorites from their site:
Can you tell the options are endless??? All you need to do is venture to their website and leave me a comment with what item you'd love to add to your home/apartment/collection/etc. The giveaway ends a week from today, Thursday, June 17th and then I'll announce a winner the next day--good luck friends and thanks again for all your support!!

  7. I love reading your blog on a daily basis and although mine is private (due to my job)I sometimes wish I could have followers too. I love your advice and reading how you ran your first half marathon has had me wanting to full fill my wish of doing so as well.

    I'm recently redecorating my room in a very vintage shabby chic look and love love love the JoJo Designs Riley"s Roses Set of 2 Window Panels - Panel-RileysRoses from the CSN store ;o). They would go perfectly:o)

    Thanks again for having such a great blog!
