Let's celebrate… One year blogaversary thank you giveaway!!!

October 6, 2012

One year ago today I hit publish on my first ever blog post. Go ahead, its a short one, take some time to read it! Done? Great.  I still love all things Pumpkin Spice and I want to share some of my favorite pumpkin spice flavored products with you. One lucky reader will be able to win this gift basket I made up.

It includes:

  • 18 pack of Pumpkin Spice Green Mountain Keurig K-cups
  • Fresh Market ground coffee Pumpkin Spice flavored
  • The Republic of Tea Pumpkin Spice red tea
  • Jelly Bean Fall Festival candy mix
  • 2 Pumpkin Spice scented votive candles
  • 1 seasonal kitchen towel
  • Tazo Organic chai tea (It’s not Pumpkin Spice but definitely one of my favorite teas right now.)
  • Pumpkin Spice cupcake recipe (not pictured)

I’m so excited to be doing a one year anniversary giveaway. It seems like yesterday that I was pouring over the WordPress for Dummies and Mom Blogging for Dummies books. Learning the ins and outs before I took the plunge. Those first few nights when I set up my blog were long ones. I remember having so much fun playing around with customizing the theme and I still enjoy doing that. Only now it’s a premium theme! 🙂

I learned so much this past year and it seems like a whole new world opened up to me. I’ve learned more about the ins and outs of web design and HTML than I ever thought I would. I found a new passion besides blogging — photography. You will always find me snapping pictures on my phone or my nifty new(ish) camera.

Social media is one of my good friends. Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ … I love it all and check in for a bit each day. My fave by far is Instagram. I love seeing what everyone is up to.

I wouldn’t be here without a few special people… My hubby for suggesting I start blogging, for supporting me, and letting me work away late at night on the couch next to him. Hilary for showing me the ropes and helping me get my blog out there and meeting my first few special bloggy friends. Leslie for opening up her corner of the blogosphere and letting me write my first guest post and for being a friend. BethAnn for being the sweetest, nicest person I have “met” in the blogosphere and for that awesome tea you sent me! The list goes on, I’ve met many wonderful people on and offline, but these 3 especially have been there since the beginning and they are still here… so Thanks to all of you!!! Luv ya.

I do have to say “Thanks.” to my kids for stopping them in their tracks so I can get just one more shot and for providing me with plenty of blog fodder. To my mom and dad for moving us half way across the world and letting me learn English as my second language… it is the most widely used language in blogging after all. 🙂

I could go on and on but I’ll stop here for now and continue my gushing another time.

I really just want to say “Thank You!!!” to each and every one of you who read my blog, who follow me on any of the social networks and who embraced me here in the interwebs.

Here’s to the next year!!!

I tried keeping the rafflecopter easy and simple. Good luck to all of you. I can’t wait to find out who the winner will be!

Wei Beauty Treatments {Giveaway}

August 23, 2012

I had a facial once, a long time ago… We were visiting family in Germany and I happened to have my birthday when we were there. So, the smart people my grandma and aunt are they decided to let me get away for an hour of rest and relaxation and got me a gift certificate for a facial.

Best present ever!!!! I felt so relaxed and rejuvenated after… and my skin was just glowing.

I’ve been meaning to get another one. But haven’t gotten around to it. No time. No money. (Well, I don’t want to spend the money.) 🙂 But, I like to soak in the tub with a mask on and take care of my skin the best I can at home.

UPrinting Business Cards {Giveaway}

May 20, 2012

I’ve come a long way since I started blogging less than a year ago. I’ve learned so much and still learn more each and every day.  I’ve met many amazing bloggers online and some offline, as well. I’m just so honored to be part of this amazing online community.

This coming weekend will be another first for me. My very first blog conference. I’m excited, nervous and hopeful.

I’ve heard that many bloggers will have their own business cards to hand-out to their peers, to brands and sponsors. I’ve never much thought about the need for business cards for myself. After all, as a stay at home mom there isn’t much need for one, is there? But now, I’m also a blogger and wouldn’t it be just sweet if I would have my very own cards with my own logo and all the information needed?

UPrinting.com is a wonderful website with many business card styles to choose from. I especially like the fact that they make it easy and straight-forward to design your business card or download a design of your choice. And the best part, their prices can’t be beat.

After perusing the website and playing around with different styles I found that I like the rounded corner design best.

Here is what I came up with.

The front of my business card.

The back of my business card.

What do you think? I can just imagine handing these out with a smile on my face.

Now you have the chance to win your own set of business cards with a design of your choice by UPrinting. 

Here is what you could win if you enter this giveaway:

250 Die-cut Business Cards for one (1) winner

2×3.5″ Rounded Corners, 2×2″ Rounded Corners, 1.75×3.5″ Rounded Corners, 2×3.5″ Leaf, 2×3.5 Rounded one corner, 2×3.5″ Half-Circle Side, 2×3.5″ Oval, or 2.5″ Circle

14pt Cardstock Gloss / Matte / High Gloss (UV), or 13pt Cardstock Uncoated

6 Business days print turnaround time

Free US shipping only

This is what you need to do:

1. Visit UPrinting.com and check out their cheap business cards.  Leave me a comment telling me which design you would choose if you win this giveaway!

2. Like UPrinting on Facebook

3. Follow UPrinting on Twitter
