Giveaway Time!

Well, I finally made it back from Key West last night! We had such a fun time and I did NOT want to leave.  I'm going to post pictures in just a little while, but first I must let you in on a little secret:

I've reached my goal of 100 followers! 

You guys ROCK! I was so excited to see that when I woke up this morning because even though I did have access to internet in Key West, I seriously did not have time to get on!  We were always either at the pool with a pina colada or riding our bikes all over the island.

I love you all- I am so excited to host my first giveaway.  Since I don't have an Etsy shop or sell anything like that, I decided I was going to give you the chance to win a few of my FAVORITE things.

So, without further ado, here is what I'm giving to one of you lovelies!

1. EOS Lip Balm- This stuff is AWESOME. I got some for Christmas and use it all the time.  It's 95% organic, 100% natural, and paraben and petrolatum free. (Don't exactly know what that means, but it was on the back of the package!) It comes in that little ball and you just twist it off and apply! It's easy to find in your purse because you can just feel for the "ball".  

2.  Potpourri.  I hope this doesn't make me an old lady, but I love potpourri.  I bought a little wicker basket from Goodwill for 50 cents, spray painted it black, and put some in my bathroom.  It always smells sooooo yummy and even my husband commented on how nice our bathroom always smells.  It's in our guest bathroom too. 

3.  Notecards. I love a handwritten note.  When hubby and I were dating long distance for over two years (with me in TX and him in NC) that's all we had: handwritten letters.  I kept ALL of them and I think it's so special to have them.  These notecards are super cute and flowery on the front and I hope it'll remind you to write a sweet note to a loved one instead of texting/emailing.  

4. A flower hair clip made by moi!  I am going to post a picture of me wearing it once I take a shower (but I haven't gotten there just yet, haha) But it's made from black felt and it adds some pizazz to a cardigan or your hair! I wear it all the time and get a lot of compliments on it.  

5. This may also make me an old lady, but I like to have nice, pretty napkins handy for when I have guests over.  My mom got me started on this, because she always has decorative napkins for all occasions.  I bought these because they are french and since we're leaving next week, I thought it was fitting!  

6. A reusable shopping bag. This one is from Marshall's (and says Marshalls on the sides) but I loved the bright flowers on the front. Can you tell I like bright colors?  I have about ten of these babies, and I use them to grocery shop.  It's humongous and can fit so many groceries in them.  And then you aren't stuck with tons of plastic baggies in your pantry!  (I folded it up for the photo, but it is really large!)

And there you go!  If you want to have the chance to win these goodies here's the rules:

1. You can or don't even have to be be a follower of my blog.  haha, if you are a follower, just say so..and if you aren't, just say something like "Ohhh I hope I win!" {One entry}

  12. We ALSO went to Key West for our honeymoon in 1993 for ten days! Had the most fantastic time. I met "Elvis" the resident grouper on a dive there. So many wonderful memories.

    My dream vacation is a toss-up between Key West and Akumal on the Yucatan Peninsula. Would be very hard to choose between the two. If you ever get the chance (if you haven't been) check it out - they have a website - I believe it is something like akumalcaribe or something similar - you can google and find it.

  13. I follow you on Twitter, also.

  14. Kaitlin - ok...can I first say.."I taught you in 3rd grade Sunday School!! And I'm STILL teaching in there! Can I really be that old?" You have grown up to be a BEAUTIFUL young lady and I love your blog.You are such an inspiration! God Bless..
