Happy 1st Blogiversary Chocolate & Wine!
Is it rude to wish yourself a Happy Blogiversary? Maybe… sorry about that.
One year ago today, I was sitting at my desk at work, searching the Internet for something to make for dinner when I decided to start this blog. At first, it was to document recipes and photos of the food I make. From there, it spiraled into a cornucopia of food, fitness and fun. And I thank all of you for helping it (and me) get to where it is now. I am more than grateful for how much support I have gotten for this blog over the last year.
For my 1st Blogiversary, I also want to do my first ever giveaway!
I love giveaways. I follow lots of blogs that are lucky enough (and popular enough) to have companies sponsor them and send them gifts to give away to their readers. I may not be at that point just yet (it’s coming though… any day now!), I still want to host a giveaway all my own.
So what will be included in this fabulous giveaway? Some of my favorite things that I’m sure you will enjoy!
1) My favorite pastime. Baking is one of my favorite things to do so I want to bake for YOU! (You see how I even made up that little rhyme? I’m good like that.) The winner will have a choice of peanut butter blossom cookies, sugar cookies or multi-chip cookies that I will send to them.
2) My favorite peanut butter. If you haven’t tried Better ‘n Peanut Butter, this is your chance to get a whole jar for yourself. Warning: If you like said PB and eat the whole jar, I am not responsible. (Note: Allergic to nuts? Enter anyway and we’ll figure out an alternative together!)
3) A Favorite Book. Let Me Eat Cake by Leslie F. Miller. A must-read for food lovers!
4) My Favorite Chocolate. I mean, it’s only fitting to include this. It’ll be a surprise to the winner which chocolate I choose.
5) My Favorite Wine….Glass. Apparently it’s frowned upon by the law to mail actual wine. However, you will receive a pretty cool wine glass that you can pour your own wine in. And I’ll tell you what my favorite wine is so you can go find it!
There will also be a few surprises in there that I’ll keep secret for the winner.
Who Can Enter? Anybody! As long as you enjoy fun, free gifts, I’d love for you to win!
PLEASE REMEMBER to include an e-mail address that you check on a regular basis in all of your comments! It would be shame to not be able to contact the person who wins!
