Just 'Cause Giveaway!

Alright, my friends, it's time for another giveaway!

Why, you may ask? Just because I feel like it, and I found some really cute stuff to give away.

I bought these lovely giveaway items from The Icing, one of my favorite accessory stores. Here they are!

This lovely black, fold-over purse.



This long silver "coin" necklace.



This "coin" bracelet.



Here I am modeling the items:



Cute, no? I actually bought one of the necklaces for myself because I liked it so much, and I wish I had that purse. But I bought it for the giveaway, and I can't take it back now (though I seriously considered getting it for myself, but I had to get something for the giveaway). I am not going to keep it. No. It's too late now.

That's right. I have amazing self-control, yes?

Here are the rules:

1. Comment on this post to enter the giveaway.

2. If you are a follower of my blog you receive two extra entries! You have to be a public follower, with your picture showing up in the little follower box on the right.

3. If you tweet about the giveaway you get another entry.

4. If you mention the giveaway in a blog post, you get an additional two entries!


Please leave me a comment for each thing that you do so that I can be sure to give you the right amount of entries! You can pick any combination of the above to gain entries, but you must comment to let me know. I'm afraid I'll be gone this upcoming weekend, but I'll announce the winner on Tuesday, May 4th!

And I'm just going to throw in this Southern Cooking cookbook from About.com, because I have it, and Southern food is purely American - you gotta love that!



Now just a quick update on recent events.

I'm writing this on Sunday afternoon and it feels like alot has been going on this week. I'm just ready for life to calm down a bit. We're having trouble with the new vehicle - it's leaking coolant, and Derek has to fix that and the brakes. It's not really a big deal, just a pain.

We're waiting for the sheet rock guys to come and do one more coat of texturing on the walls in the basement. It's looking really good down there! I'll post a video update soon.

We went to a Lincoln Day fundraising dinner for the Republican party in my county on Saturday. It was alot of fun, and I got to speak with my Congressman! Our Representatives to the state legislatures and our national Congressman gave speeches, and they had some really interesting stories about interactions with other congressmen and even the President (the interaction-with-the-President tales were stories of standing up to our President, and elicited much cheering).

It was pretty exciting. I even bid on a pack of books during the silent auction, but someone out-bid me by two dollars when I wasn't looking. I was pretty bummed, because there were some good books there. My dad won a different pack of books though, and he'll let me read them, so that's something!

Other than that, my house is falling apart, I have to figure out something for dinner, there are about a dozen things on my to-do list, and I have to wake up at five for work tomorrow morning and start another crazy work week, so overall I'm just feeling like life is out of control and way too busy. I'm so ready for a vacation.

Twenty-five days and counting . . .

Good luck on the giveaway, and I hope you all have a non-crazy, smooth, in-control Monday!
