Happy Blogoversary and a GIVEAWAY!!!!

It's my blogoversary!! WOO!! A year ago today I made my first post. And such an "exciting" post it was! Not really.. but I'd like to think they've gotten more interesting over the year! I really enjoy doing this blog as a record keeper of our life. I know that one day I won't remember all of the little things about Ava and I'll have this to look back on for details and I love that. Part of what makes writing so fun is hearing from the people who read it!

So, as a way to say THANK YOU!, I am hosting my first giveaway! I picked out some things that I enjoy and like having around and thought I'd share them with you! So here ya go:

You can never have too many picture frames!

I like having sets of notecards around because you never know when you might need to send something: a thank you, a note, an encouragement, or just a cute way to correspond with someone!

I love these! They are magnetic and I always have a lined one on my refrigerator. When we run out of something, that item goes on the list so that we don't forget about it when we are making the shopping list. I've never had the to-do list before, but it's magnetic as well and maybe my to-do list wouldn't be so blah on this brightly colored paper!

And I saved the best for last!!!!

That's right! If you win this, you will have $15 to buy whatever your little heart desires at Target! Sound good?

Ok, how to win:

1 Entry - Leave me a comment and tell me what you might use the gift card to buy (You don't have to have a blog to leave a comment or win. If you don't have one and want to enter, simply click on "Your Takes On It" enter your comment in the box, and then choose the Anonymous option.)

2 Additional Entries - Become a follower or tell me that you already are a follower

3 Additional Entries - Blog about this giveaway. Leave me a comment if you do so and post a link to the entry.

You may enter until Tuesday, July 21st, at noon (CST). I will select a winner no later than Wednesday evening! This is a great way to come out of hiding if you've been reading about us but haven't left a comment! We would love to know our readers so we can check you out too!

(This giveaway is limited to US residents only. Thanks)

Good luck!

    I would use the Target giftcard to buy some things for me...since my life here at your former employer is taking all my happiness away!!!! NO MORE 20% for no benefits...I was no benefits. Also they've taken away a weeks vacation...I need a new job.

    Anyways...Happy Blog Anniversary! Hope you continue to brighten my day with your blogs and sweet pictures of Ava!

  21. This is absolutely great! I'm loving all the posted comments about following your blog! We all love that little Ava to pieces, so we, I mean I have to follow, stalk, whatever you want to call it so I can get my "Ava Fix"!! I'm so ready to spend my Target gift card winnings...I like to talk about it as if it's already mine! I'm planning on a necklace or a movie. By the way, Happy Blogaversary!! Love you, Iva
