Blogging has its perks....

When I first started my blog, I did so only for the purpose of having a place where I could write, ramble, post pictures, and where my family, all scattered across the US, could watch Savannah grow up. Oh, and also because my sister Jamie bugged me incessantly about starting it until I finally gave in. I had no clue whatsoever what I was doing, and no idea how big this blogosphere really is. Or how many awesome ladies I would connect with. So I am now hooked.

And an added bonus that I didn't know about? All of the fantastic giveaways that everybody is always hosting. I've entered plenty of them, but don't often win.

But then I got an exciting email yesterday.

And....I won a necklace! I had entered a blog giveaway a few days ago over at Carolina Mama, and she emailed to say that I was the winner of this:

Cool, huh? It's from Lisa Leonard designs (I think that Shannon from Rocks in my Dryer is giving away this exact same necklace right now, too....go check it out).

So Carolina Mama has something going called Win It Wednesday, where she gives away some really great products. This week she is featuring a fun pocket-book size jewelry organizer, which is perfect to throw in your purse when you travel. It's by JJJanie, who also happens to be Boomama's sister.

So....if you feel like entering to win some free stuff, head over to Carolina Mama!

I meant to do this a while back......but a big thanks to Linda at 2nd Cup of Coffee....she held a blog giveaway a few weeks ago for a book called Sweet Caroline, and she randomly picked my number. So thank you, Linda! There's nothing I like more than starting off the summer with a brand new book.

Congratulations! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I've been to NM once when my husband and I took a trip to the Four Corners area starting and ending in Albuquerque. It's such a beautiful place!

Thanks for the nice post about "Win It Wednesday." I'm sure Lisa will be happy to see too. You're good at this. ;) Hey, thanks for letting me know about Rock In My Dryer's giveaway ... I need that necklace too! It's so cute!

I bought a necklace from Lisa Leonard Designs when she was giving a % of sales to CF - in honor of Tricia, Confessions of a CF husband, and I LOVE my necklace. I'm sure you will love yours too! Congrats!
