500th post giveaway.........

UPDATE: I failed to put a cut off the giveaway will end  at noon on Wed. thanks!
Can't believe this is my 500th post
and it's also my birthday so to honor both, I'm having a giveaway of 5 things that relax me!
First up is a really cool gardening book. Working in my yard and my flower beds relax me so much.....unless there is a snake sighting and then all of that goes downhill. So this book is used, still in great's the only "used" thing I'm giving away!

and who doesn't relax to a good cup of coffee and you can't get much better than Starbucks! We buy this stuff by the case.....mmmmmm.

I'm not the greatest on writing personal notes but I sure do love getting them. So here's a very cute little notecard set....brown and blue! Who doesn't love brown and blue!!

I make these cute little crocheted dishcloths....or you can use them as hot mats. But crocheting to me is so relaxing! I don't really know how to make anything except these, scarves and blankets. haha..and I sure enjoy it. And if you should win, and these colors do not go with your kitchen, trust me, I have lots of these so I probably have the colors you would like. I think they just look cute sitting there all tied up :)

and last but not least........EATING OUT!! You all know that's relaxing! So here's a $50 gift card to help you relax. And what better place than Friday's....we all love that day of the week! And Friday's is fun and loud!!

To enter my giveaway, just leave me a comment...maybe even a birthday greeting! I only have about 35 followers so your odds of winning are pretty good. I do have a lot of friends and family that follow my blog so I will be using random generator to pick my winner. Just so no one thinks I'm showing any favoritism :)
so good luck.......

At first, I didn't think I'd be But then you mentioned family reading your blog too, so I thought oh why not! Plus, if I could get the gift night for Matt and me! haha.

What a neat idea and so cool that your 500th post should land on your birthday. Here's to hoping I win because what I really want are the cute handmade crochet thingies. :-) I can't knit or crochet to save my life. LOL
