100th Post! Time for a Giveaway! ***Closed***


Can you believe it? I've been blogging since July and I can't live without it! I love waking up in the morning and writing (or rather, choosing an entry from my "draft" folder) and posting it. I love having something ridiculous happen to me and thinking "oh my gosh I have to blog about this!" I love that I have bloggy friends - people I've never met in real life but I feel like I've known them forever because I read their blogs daily.

But most of all I love all of YOU, dear readers. I love it when you comment, I love when I get more followers, and I love hearing your opinions about the topics I post about. So thanks. Thanks for coming back every day, thanks for cheering me up when I'm down, and thanks for keeping me grounded when I need a reality check.

But saying thank you doesn't seem like enough. So....how about some free stuff? No? Well, okay. Nevermind.

JUST KIDDING!

Get excited for my first ever giveaway! I thought about this giveaway a lot. I mean a lot. I'm pretty sure the mister is sick of hearing me talk about this giveaway. The other day he asked, "When are you doing this again? Because until then I'm the only one you can talk to about this right?"

I've written a lot about how much I love fall. (Really? You didn't know that? Go here, here, here, or here to catch up).

I share all my other crazy thoughts with you - I figure for a giveaway, why not share my perfect idea of a fall day? Well say hello to a bag o' fall!

This is the handmade bag by Kinies you could potentially win! (Check out more great things from her Etsy shop, Kinies Design here).

However, you're not just going to win this bag - there will be some other items in there:

- a bottle of OPI's "I'm Not Really A Waitress," nail polish (to see the color, click here)
- a $10 gift card to Borders
- a $5 gift card to Starbucks (because really, what good is a fall day without a good book and a delicious drink?)
- and...a couple other things (all fall-related) that I won't quite reveal yet

How do you win all this awesome-ness? Keep reading.

There are three ways to enter yourself, and a way to score a bonus entry or two!

1 - Leave a comment (must be associated with a name - sorry anonymous, not you!)

2 - Become a follower (or if you're already a follower), tell me in a separate comment

3 - Post about this on your blog and leave me a comment telling me you did so with a link

If you did all of these things you would be leaving three separate comments. Make sense?

But wait. I mentioned a bonus entry or two, right? If you post about this on your blog and one of your readers visits this post and leaves a comment, you'll get an extra entry! Just be sure they say that you referred them!

The giveaway will be open for one week, and will close at 10 PM, Sunday, October 18th. A winner will be randomly selected and announced Tuesday, October 20th.

Happy Friday! And thanks for reading!!!
