Happy Anniversary!

Today marks the one year anniversary of this crazy little adventure known as blogging, and its just plain nuts to think of how far its come! Never did I imagine that hundreds of stalkers followers would be checking in daily on my somewhat ridiculous antics and otherwise entertaining life.

But here we are, 364 ¼ days later. My life is a lot different now. A lot better, a lot richer and a whole lot more silly. Thanks for everything, Internet peeps. Your IP lovin’ means more to me than you’ll ever know.

So, as bloggers often do, I’m hosting a GIVEAWAY! Since we’re a big fan of the number “three” here on this blog, I’ve decided to award three prizes to three very lucky readers.

GRAND PRIZE: This girl can’t live without her caffeine and her shopping. Thus, one lucky reader will win a $10 gift card to Starbuckies and a $10 gift card to Target. Le swoon.

FIRST PRIZE: I’m obsessed with paper products. I know. Shocker. As such, one lucky reader will win any $8 product of her (his?) choice from bleu soleil design. Plus, Jackie's offered to throw in 6 gift tags to match the design of your choice. Thanks, Jackie!!

SECOND PRIZE: I do love me some Mickey D’s Diet Coke. Again, shocking. The winner of this prize will receive a $5 McDonald’s gift card to get ‘cha own damn Diet Coke. Or fries. Whatever, I don’t judge.

Receive one entry for doing each of the following: (Yes, you can do them all. That’s what she said.)
- leave a comment and tell me your favorite Starbuckies treat
- become (or already be) a follower of this blog
- post my giveaway on your fabulous blog

And…drumroll please…get TWO extra entries into this giveaway by urging your blog peeps (or Facebook friends, Twitter birds, etc.) to vote for “…and baby makes 3!” in’s Mommy Blog Awards.

That's a total of FIVE possible entries. You have until Wednesday, October 21 to enter. Get to work!

yum.... Tall Caramel Frappucino, double shot of caramel, no whip. Curse you for making me dream of it while I'm hopelessly trapped in my germ infested classroom and in desperate need of a caffeine injection after not enough sleep (courtesy of Insomni-Jack).

right now i'm quite enjoying the NF pumpkin spice latte. True, it contains SAUCE. But pumpkin sauce is acceptable. :)

Also, I have never heard of Kelli's "Nonfat white chocolate mocha" but now I want one really really bad.

Cait said...

I just found your blog because of the Bump Awards. It's great!

My favorite starbucks drink is the hot apple cider. Yum!

My favorite drink is hot chocolate - I know lame...and I found out that hot chocolate here is not nearly as good as it is in France. Their chocolate is much better. But, since I don't live in France, Starbucks will have to suffice.

I tweeted about your blogging momma award. I hope you get some extra votes.

Judy said...
