Birthday Giveaway

August 21, 2009 at 2:11 pm (Fun Stuff, Giveaway)

Congratulations Aimee!

I’m pretty sure I’ve got your address, but if it’s some random Aimee that I don’t know, send me your info at: lovelydainty(at)!

I think this went pretty well, maybe I’ll do it again some time!

This year my family has been extremely blessed. It has been overwhelming at times and just plain fun at times. In the middle of one of the more difficult times I was telling my sister-in-law how I wouldn’t ever be able to repay her for what she did for us, and she told me that I would have my opportunity to help someone the way that she helped me. Well, I don’t think that’s exactly what I’m doing today. I’m more giving into fun karma. This week Doug and I both won contests. I won a little something something over at DesignMom and Doug won something at his work’s United Way kickoff. I can’t keep on basking in my good fortune if I don’t give something back.

So, today I am hosting my first ever

Sarah’s Favorite Things Giveaway










This could all be yours!

We R Memory Keepers mini album

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser (it truly is magical!)

M&M’s Premiums Triple Chocolate

Mrs. Meyers Clean Day Spray in Baby Blossom

Safety 1st Baby Nail Clippers (By far the best ones out there)

Heather Bailey FreshCut Quilting Squares

Nielsen-Massey Vanilla Bean Paste

I might even place a few more things in there before Monday.

    Happy Birthday!!!!! What kind of yummy cake is the in works? I’m all up for free giveaways. (Did you check out the $150 giveaway to Downeast at DesignMom? How do you win so many of those- by the way?)

    Sarah, it seems we have more in common than last names. I happen to love almost everything in this “Favorites” package. I own a Pampered Chef cake tester that I’ve had for years, but it’s a little bent; Burt’s Bees lip balm rocks; I love Mrs Meyers, but I’ve never smelled the Baby Blossom scent; and what do you do with vanilla bean paste?
    P.S. In 1994 I won one of the very first PowerMac computers in a drawing. I’m hoping to draw on that same winning juju.
