Seriously? Another Giveaway?

Hey guys and gals!

Just popping in quick on this beautiful day to share some giveaway information.

First, the winner of the Shabby Apple Giveaway has been announced.

Be sure to head on over to the post to see whether or not it was you!

Second…are you ready for this?

I have yet another giveaway for you all today. Yes, seriously. Another one. Crazy, right?

So here’s the deal…remember when I submitted my recipe for the Cheesy Crab and Shrimp Shells to the Hodgson Mill Pinterest Contest Page?

The contest is still open until Friday so you’re more than welcome to like my pin on their pinterest board, if you’d like. Winking smile

But also as a part of that contest, Hodgson Mill is giving my readers an opportunity to win $25 worth of an assortment of Hodgson Mill whole wheat pasta products redeemable at the Hodgson Mill online store.

To enter to win the $25.00 gift certificate:

Simple leave a comment on this post telling me anything happy or positive (I always like reading about happy things!) you’d like to share.

It’s a quick turnaround, so I’ll choose and announce the winner tomorrow morning. Good luck! Smile

  17. melanie says

    I ran 7.5 miles on the treadmill yesterday as part of my training for a 1/2 marathon in August. It’s the farthest I’ve run yet! I used to think running even 5.5 miles was a lot for me, but I’m gaining the confidence and strength to push myself and am loving the results :)

    Today was the best Fourth of July I have ever had! I made fruit pizza with my boyfriend for a party (pretty much the same thing as your sugar cookie flag) and we had such a great day! Happy 4th!

  53. Danielle says

    I have recently been trying to incorporate more veggies into my life. I moved from a little town and had never heard of farmer’s markets before. I cannot get enough of the fresh produce and how inexpensive everything is. They are now my newest addiction. Could be worse, right!

  54. Kristin says

    Today is my 30th birthday and I’m healthier and happier than ever thanks to an active lifestyle and mostly clean diet!

  55. Lydia L. says

    I’m happy because I have started eating healthy in the past 3 months and can already notice a difference in my energy level and physical appearance. I had a baby 7 months ago and realized it was finally time to start working on those extra leftover baby pounds, AND setting a good example for her of healthy eating.

  59. Julie says

    I got to spend the day with my best friend and her family yesterday after not seeing her in over 6 months! And today I get the day off and get to spend it home with my little one!!

  60. says

  61. Cassie says

    I’m happy that I am finding time to enjoy time with my husband, friends, and family. I’m making it a priority and enjoying every moment!

  63. Christa says

    My mom met Julia Roberts yesterday at the hotel where she works (my mom, not Julia ;)). The one thing she told her was that I can quote pretty much all of Steel Magnolias. Apparently she did her famous laugh and said she was flattered :)

    Yesterday I booked all the hotels for an August trip to South Carolina. I’m so excited this means it’s officially happening!

    Enjoyed the 4th with my family and a big bowl of frozen yogurt (a well deserved snack because it was uber hot out) :)

  70. Nicole says

    I bought a box of those awesome strawberry shortcake ice cream bars last night, completely out of the blue. Eating one while watching the fireworks totally made me happy :)

  71. Lara F. says

    I’m so happy to be turning 20 years old in 9 days. Hoping to spend it having a spa day with my mom and spending time with my family. <3

  72. Jen says
