My first giveaway!

I have such exciting news! A representative from CSN Stores contacted me with a giveaway offer to a lucky reader! Can you believe that?! My little ol' blog hosting a giveaway? I was shocked and had to read it about five times to make sure my eyes weren't playing tricks on me.

So, I'm sure you are wondering what the giveaway is exactly. It is a $35 gift code to purchase just about ANYTHING at any of their 200+ online stores! There is no doubt you will find something you love with so many options.

I, for one, am digging their barstools.

How cute are these Carolina Cottage ones! :)

There are thousands of other options, though, as CSN Stores has a broad range of products in their 200+ online stores. Got to love options, right!

Here is how to enter the contest:
1. Become a follower (unless you are already following -- thanks, friends!)
2. Leave a comment on this post with your email address, so that I can contact you with the gift code if you win. However, if you know that I can definitely find your contact info by clicking on your name, then no need to bother with an email address.

For an extra 2 entries, simply add my button in the sidebar of your blog, and then leave me a second comment letting me know that you did so. Thanks!! :)

P.S. I think it's sort of annoying when people host giveaways and then make you come back to their blog to see if you have won (I always forget!). So, that is why I promise that you can enter the giveaway contest and then not have to think about it again, because I will seek you out to give you the prize if you've won rather than make you check back here (although I would love to have you). I will post the name and comment of the person who wins, though, in case you're wondering.

Here are a couple of other details:
○ Contest is open from 10/29 through 11/7 (ends at 12:00pm EST)
○ Only US and Canadian residents are eligible (sorry! Has to do with shipping…)
○ Also, I would really appreciate it if the winner would write a quick post linking back here and letting everyone know he/she has won. No worries, though, if you don't have a blog. :)

Okay, ready..set..go!

Thanks so much!

UPDATE: I randomly drew a winner on 11/7. Here is the info. Thanks for entering!
