So, today, L, H and I went on a shopping trip at lunch. Why?
Well, first of all, to buy my sister Beth a birthday card that says “Party Animal” and has a gerbil or something (I’m not strong on classifying rodentia) in a party hat.
But second of all, to buy some fun stuff for YOU!
Inspired by my friend New Teacher, New Wife, I’ve decided to host my first giveaway. The contest will run from now until Sunday night at midnight.
Since you’ve all been talking about fall and pumpkins and what-not, I decided to select a few gifts with a fall color scheme. And, since I’ve heard most of your ideas about what you love about fall during the week of what Jamie called fallidays postings, I’ve decided to be extremely practical and ask for some information I want — which is,
”What book should we select for our inaugural book club meeting?”
So, to enter, post a response in the blog comments. It doesn’t have to be long and complex (but it can be). It can be as simple as, “Emma is my all-time favorite book,” or “My book club just finished The Other Boleyn Girl and loved it.” Or, you can link to a review of a book you’ve completed on your own blog. Kate and I thank you in advance. 😉 I will randomly select a winner by making Ducks draw one of your names from a hat. 🙂
What will you win?
A fun flower headband, because I’m extremely headband-obsessed. And I almost kept this for myself (that’s me wearing it and trying to convince myself to give it to you all). As a side note, my hair looks really light in this picture. It’s much darker in person. Weird.
A fall tones cardholder – I’ve also been wanting one of these for myself for a while because I usually use my Vera pouch. (Confession: Okay, so I actually bought two of these card holders, so I guess I don’t ACTUALLY still want one because I was greeeeedy and got one for myself.)
Fall-ish earrings. Nothing particularly special, just something fun to add to your wardrobe! I’m the kind of girl who wears the same studs (the ones Ducks gave me for Christmas four years ago), almost everyday, but every once in a while, I like to switch it up with something a little more fun.
I’m anxious to hear your suggestions so that we can get our book club up-and-running. And, most of all, I just wanted to thank you guys for being great readers adn friends. Hope you like the giveaway items! 🙂
PS And, in addition, I’ll give a bonus entry for everyone who clicks over to Holy Turf (for the ticket contest) and leaves me a comment saying that you’ve clicked — the comments need to be included on this blog post, so keep clicking and posting! 🙂
