A Giveaway for my Birthday!

July 27, 2009

Technically, my birthday is not until August 3, but I found some really cute summery kitchen stuff at Belk over the weekend, so...

I'm doing my first GIVEAWAY ever!

I totally had planned to do this on my 100th post, but this is only my 75th. However, this is MY blog and it's about to be MY birthday, so I can do what I want to do!

I am giving to one of my U.S.-dwelling-bloggy friends (Sorry, Canadian bloggy friends and beyond...that includes you, my quiet little friend in Belgium.) these cool items:

A pretty wall plaque...
...that has a sense of humor. As if MY kitchen ever closes!
Some pretty candles that look like limes and lemons. Do not eat. (Sorry, I'm a mom. It comes naturally.)
Finally, a set of matching baskets, perfect for storing fruit--who am I kidding? In my house these babies would be holding chocolate. But not for long periods of time, though.

Here's how to enter:

First, just comment on this post. You may earn extra entries by:
  1. Following me on Twitter.
  2. Tweet about this giveaway.
  3. Subscribing to or Following this blog, using the followers gadget or a reader.
Be sure to leave an extra comment for each extra entry.

Also, if I make it to 75 "Gadget Followers," I will throw in an extra something cool. (Not to be confused with something extra-cool. Although it might be something extra-cool. I just haven't decided on what it will be yet.) Why 75? I was born in 1975 and this is my 75th post, so I'm shooting for the stars here! I was going to just suggest the age I am now, but somehow my followers number went up and over that recently (thank you/I'm flattered/I apologize), so I had to set my sights higher.

The contest starts at 12:00 a.m. on Monday, July 27, and closes at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, August 3. A winner will be randomly chosen and announced on Tuesday, August 4 when my sugar high from the cake wears off. Good luck!

Okay, I have to ask... What's Belk? And is it Belgian?

So funny! I hope I win!!!

And even funnier is the above comment because even though I live up in PA I know what "Belk" is because once up on a time when I was young and skinnier, I worked for Belk's buying office in NYC. I worked on organizing the fashion shows or trade shows they would have down in North Carolina. Memories. I can hear my boss screaming my name down the hall looking for me. He had a filthy mouth and it always made me cringe to hear him use that language.

Okay, enough with my memories. Good luck on reaching your goal. And a great giveaway!!!

I usually opt out of US give aways anyway as I know the postage is a total drag. But those are some cute finds and I know they will bless someone for sure. :) And Happy Birthday!

I'll leave a comment, but I'm not officially entered. This is the kind of stuff I already have WAY too much of. Charlie would not be pleased if I brought more into the house.

And since he's the chef, he'd also say the kitchen plaque is not his style.

But you go girl! Giveaways are fun! And happy early birthday!

Hooray for giveaways!

Is Belk just a southern thing?
