Giveaway: Choose from seven $25 gift cards

I am waaaay behind in posting, it isn’t even funny. So lemme get back on track, STAT.

This giveaway marks the one year anniversary of this blog (I’m a couple of weeks overdue, but still!). Because of my tardiness in posting, I’ll cut to the chase.

I’m giving away a total of 5 prizes (1 grand prize + 4 runner-ups). The grand prize is a $25 gift card of your choice (see 1st photo below). The 3 runner-up prizes are $10 Subway gift cards. The last prize is a $5 Starbucks gift card.

Your $25 gift card choices are:

  • Blockbuster – I’m super behind in watching movies…I can’t be the only one!
  • Ebay – bid, bid, bid!
  • Barnes & Noble – because you’re a bibliophile!
  • Best Buy – maybe your electronics need “upgrading”?
  • Home Depot – because summer is almost over and you’ve put off doing any home projects long enough!
  • Footlocker – if you’re like me, you’re in the market of buying new athletic footwear…Mizuno and Nike are my top contenders so far!
  • Starbucks – ’cause getting a hit of caffeine makes everything instantly better!

  3. My favorite dessert is a twisted fried dough called a kliner that my mom makes. They are not too sweet and are perfect with coffee. If I won, I would choose a gift card to Best Buy so I could get some ink (boring, I know). I love your blog plan on coming back to try some of your recipes.

  10. First and foremost Congratulations on your 1 Year Anniversary!! That is such a great achievement and you must be so thrilled. I wish you another year of much fun and enjoyment! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your blog community and this celebration!

    1. My favorite all time desert is Homemade Apple Pie with Vanilla Ice Cream melted on top of it, YUMMM, I am drooling just at the thought of it.

    2. I have to say I would love to choose the Ebay Gift Card! I love to shop on Ebay, and I love to purchase unique hard to find gifts on Ebay too! It is hard for me as a busy mom of 3 young children to spend time shopping in the malls and stores so if I can shop late at night in the comfort of my home and purchase items at great deals, that is what I find Ebay so perfect for!

    Thank you so much for the wonderful chance to enter.
