Blog Giveaways -I Won!!

I would like to take a moment to extend a BIG thank you for two big wins this past month! It was a great welcoming into the world of blogging!

First, I was so inspired by We Are That Family to hear about Kristen's idea about the Kissing Challenge which also coincided with her SWAK Valentine's Carnival.

I am excited to share that I WON! I received my book Better Love Now: Making Your Marriage a Lifelong Love Affair you can find it at amazon here. Thank you so much Kristen! I thoroughly enjoy reading your blog and the book was the perfect win for me and my hubby! (You can check my older posts to see my winning post in honor of my husband) I would like to also say that the book is wonderful!! My husband and I are reading it together and so far we are really enjoying it!

My other win was from Amy at the maisy report.
Isn't she adorable?

She is so sweet and I honestly didn't think I had a chance of winning when I entered! I was surprised the next day to hear that I did!!! I won a $50 gift card of my choice, wow, you don't get something like that every day!!! Amy was very sweet and agreed to give me a Visa gift card which is perfect for my indecisive personality!! Now I can spread my gift to a few stores possibly! I thought it was also very nice of her to nudge me to get a manicure, go out to a restaurant I like, etc. It will go to great use and you must know when it is my money I am even stricter with spending it, so since I won this, I might still be using it 3 months from now! LOL
I can vouch for blog giveaways being worth your time! Plus I have already made some wonderful friends!!! Thank you both so much!!!
Amy is also starting a candy business...check out her blog...I told you she was sweet! :)

Enjoy it girl. I'm blessed to call you my friend!!
