It's my birthday but YOU get the gift!

Wow.  I was just overwhelmed by the response I got about the blog I wrote about Jeff.  I use my blog kinda like a diary, to document my life so that things that I think are important today will be remembered tomorrow.  I knew our classmates would see it since my blog automatically posts to my Facebook via NetworkedBlogs but I never dreamed that Jeff's mama, aunts and cousins would see it, too.  Those are the blessings of being from a small town, where everybody knows everybody and if you're not Facebook friends with someone, you can pretty much bet that one of your friends is and that's how they ended up seeing it.  I'm so happy that my words brought them comfort and a smile or two.

Since I had so many (250+!) read this particular blog entry, it pushed the total views on my blog to over 50,000!  That's another cool thing Jeff did.  :)

My birthday is coming up on the 24th and I decided to have my first blog giveaway in honor of passing 50,000 views and me hitting the backside of 40.  :)

So I have put together a few of my favorite things, things I love and use in my everyday life.  Since I'm a girl (duh!) and most of my readers are girls, it's mostly "girl stuff" but if a guy wins, I'll throw in a razor or something.  :)  All you have to do to win is comment on this blog post or where it posts to my Facebook and tell me one thing that YOU use and love.  On my birthday, I'll use a random generator to determine the winner.  It's that easy!

This is what you'll get!

Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day Countertop Spray in Lemon Verbena (I use this as an all-purpose cleaner and it works great!  Smells incredible, too!!)

Seventh Generation Natural Hand Wash in Lavender

St. Ives Apricot Scrub (I honestly cannot get by without this stuff!!)

Rimmel Hide The Blemish Concealer in Ivory (I have tried expensive department store brand concealers and nothing even comes close to this!  It's creamy, it goes on smooth and covers what you need to cover and if you're my age or older and don't have much to cover, then I just don't know what to think about you.  Ha!)

A bag of Skittles 'cause this girl loves her some Skittles

A little cup of Jif To Go Chocolate Silk Peanut Butter

And a beautiful vintage pillowcase from the 70's.  This one is blue, yellow and green on a white background and it is really, really pretty.

So there you go!  Good luck!!
