Blogversary GiveAway!!!!

The Grand Blogversary Gift Pack!!!!

April 20011 brought an exciting (well to me, at least) Blogversary.  On April 26, 2006 I posted for the very first time!  It was a single photo and caption.  Boy, over the last FIVE years I got wordy. 

I started blogging shortly after I started reading this blog (originally on a different blog host). Hans is the brother to my oldest, and dearest friend, who we lost to breast cancer in 2004.  I guess he was my inspiration to start a blog (who knew?).  I often find myself blogging about things I wish I could share with Sonja, even 7 years later. 

When I first started blogging I really thought more of it as "journaling" (I really didn't like the word blog...it sounded kind of icky to me.) I couldn't have imagined how many fun things and people it would bring into my life.  I have met some amazing friends, learned so much, and even found myself developing new professional directions from my blog.  It has been a wonderful ride and I love the land of blog (yes, I have warmed to the word.)

So to celebrate I am hosting a giveaway of some wonderful pink and green fun (because I believe everyone needs a little pink & green!) 

The prize pack (above) includes:
*A signed copy of Nesting, It's a Chick Thing by Ame Mahler Beanland & Emily Miles Terry (it will take a little extra delivery time so that it can be personalized for YOU)
*1 pack of 10 pink & green note cards with envelopes (perfect for those little thank you notes!)
*2 green (with pink embroidery) waffle weave dish towels
*3 pastel ramekins (pink, blue & yellow)
*1 flower & ribbon magnetic notepad (to keep up with all you have to keep up with)
*1 container of Pastel Pearl Nonpareils (so you can decorate those cupcakes, girl!)
*Godiva Chocolatier Strawberry Truffle gems (cause you know we have to have our chocolate)

So, how to YOU enter for a chance to win? 
 All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. 
Simple, huh? 

If you would like extra entries (totally optional!):
-Blog about my BlogAversary Giveaway and leave me a separate comment with link to your post
-Tweet about it adding @SouthernSmdays so I will know
-Facebook about it and leave me a separate comment so I will know
-If you are a follower or become a follower leave me a separate comment for an extra entry.
***for extra entries to count please leave separate comments (it just makes it easier on me...and I am all about that!)

I will draw a winner on May 26, 2011!  Good Luck!!!
