Happy Blogiversary to Me!!

One year ago today I decided to take the leap into blogging. Inspired by my real life blog friend, The Mom Jen, I decided I couldn't possibly just sit on the sidelines and be a blog reader -- I had to write, too! Since I started I've never looked back, and I've so enjoyed all the people that I've had the opportunity to get to know all over the world.

My first blog was about how much I love to read, and my second was about how much I love my iPod. In keeping with the theme of celebrating the start of my blog, I'm doing my Very First GIVEAWAY!!

Here's what one lucky reader of my blog will win!



Who couldn't use some new tunes, right? Download some music and think of me!

Here's all you have to do to enter:

1. Leave a comment! (1st Entry)

2. Start following my blog (if you aren't already) and leave me another comment about it (including if you already are). (2nd Entry)


That's it! I was determined to make it easy without a million hoops to jump through for extra entries. Plus I'm happy to keep the contest somewhat limited to those three of you who've been reading me on a regular basis, or those who may discover me this week. Good luck to all who enter, regular and new readers alike!

A winner will be picked next Wednesday, April 15 at 7pm PDT!

Stay tuned the week after for my second giveaway -- I'm currently reviewing a children's game and website that you won't want to miss out on!

Happy Anniversary Blog World! Thank you for welcoming me into my own little corner!

Congrats! Can't believe its been a whole year. Don't know what I'd do if I win your prize... Collin's begging for an ipod, but I'm not sold on it yet. He's trying to save up for it on his own, but so far just has $5. Poor kid can't resist the ice cream truck!

I would love to win this, because I just found out tonight that someone scammed his/her way into my I-tunes account and charged $100 worth of gift cards on my credit card. Grrrr.
