A Thanks to Followers - Giveaway!

This Giveaway is now CLOSED!  Thank you!

Earlier this week I hit the 200 mark for followers, and I was so excited!  If you are following and I haven't followed back, just shoot me an email with your blog link and I'd be happy to do so.

As a thank you to my followers I wanted to do a giveaway to celebrate. 
In thinking of what to give away, it occured to me that about half of my blog readers are here because they like the parenting side of things.  And the other half of my blog readers are here because they like the farm/rural life side of things.  So I decided to do a winner's choice giveaway.  That's right.  I've got two different options, and if you win, you pick!

Giveaway #1:  First up is a bunch of fun kid's goodies.  Course we had to get a few kid farmy things in.  So first is a very cute hardback book called Dora's Eggs.  An Eggs-A-Glow dye set (Easter is coming up!), two coloring books (one Disney, one Sesame Street), a Disney puzzle, farm stickers, Crayola crayons, and my favorite - a Mister Men, Little Miss action figure magnet set (this is great for taking to restaurants or doctor appointments and keeping kids entertained). 

Giveaway #2:  This giveaway includes the cutest fondue pot ever.  I bought two of these because I thought they were so cute, and sent one to my Pinkalicious Swap partner.  Also are two Kiss My Face kits - one is an organic facial kit and the other is an obsessively natural serenity bath kit.  Finally, a mini manicure kit and a decorative note pad. 

There you have it!  So what do you have to do to enter?
You must be a follower to enter (if you're not currently a follower, you can become one and still enter), and I like to keep things really simple.  So just leave me a comment as to whether you'd want to win Giveaway #1 or Giveaway #2, and what your favorite item is.  Please make sure that if you don't have an email attached to your profile that you leave your email address in the comment.  That's it!

Giveaway closes February 25th at noon, winner (chosen by Random.org) announced on the 26th.  And yes, I'll be happy to ship to other countries.

Good luck!

Grady isn't quite old enough to appreciate anything in give away #1 so I'm going to be selfish and pick #2! The serenity bath looks wonderful...expecially since I'm currently at work and the best thing in the world would be a hot bath right now...and a warm cozy bed to fall asleep in :-)

I'd love to win # 2. That fondu pot looks fun. Thanks for the giveaway. I follow with GFC.

Ok that first comment try didnt work.

A give away is fun! I would like to enter drawing one :O). You know I don't have any kiddos, but I have 22 nieces and nephews from itty bitty to grown and married. Who are now having kids of their own thus the 5 grand nieces and nephews with a couple more in the oven :O)...
DH's one brother and his wife had 11 kids so that really shot the numbers up fast LOL ...

Lisa said...

Giveaway #1 would be perfect for us. My daughter is a puzzle enthusiast, not to mention stickers are what make the world go round to any 3yr old.

Mary said...

Hmm I think I would have to go with giveaway # 1 if I won!

I hope have a great weekend :)

200 followers...awesome! It's because you've got so much good stuff on here all the time!
I'd go with number 1! Always looking for more to do with the kiddos! You're so nice! Have a great weekend!

Nancy@A Rural Journal said...

This is so thoughtful, Lisa. I don't have any young children or even grands, so I'll have to stake my claim on #2. Crossing my fingers! :)

Elizabeth Wagner said...

Hey Lisa I am going to have to pick giveway #1. Mattie and I hope we win. You can find me on facebook if we do.

Chatty Crone said...

Okay I would LOVE #1 - I have a new grandson and I would love to give him all of it - he doesn't have any thing like that! love the crayons and stickers. sandie

Christina said...

Congrats on reaching (and surpassing) 200 followers! Very cool! And what a fun giveaway. I would love to win giveaway #1. Ashlyn and I could have so much fun with it! I love magnetic sets. We use stuff like that for plane rides. The only plane rides we have taken have been 2 1/2 hours long but in April we'll be flying from Florida to California so I need to stock up on stuff to distract her!

I'd prefer giveaway 2, because I love fondue!

Valerie said...

Lisa,
Congratulations on reaching the 200 follower mark!
To help you celebrate, I'd pick prize #2 and make us some chocolate fondue:)
Fun giveaway, and congrats again!

Katie said...

You know...I'm here for both sides of things!!! :-) It would be a really tough choice for me. I'd actually love a mix of both. Lol! I have the kiddos...but the facial kit intrigues me as does the fondue pot!

Love your blog! :-)

What a fantastic idea to celebrate your 200 followers! I have no kids so #2 is for me. My girlfriends and I are in the process of putting together a fondue party and I am so looking forward to it. Thanks for the great posts!

Andrea (ace1028) said...

#2. That would be my pick. Although my kiddo would prefer #1. Hmmmn. ;) Congrats on hitting 200, though you're over that now! Yahoo!

Myya said...

I'm a follower :)
I'd LOVE to win #2. My kiddos always get goodies, mama wants somethin fun! As far as what item I like best, I can't decide between the fondue or the facial stuff... Awesome giveaway!

uglydog75 said...

I've never been a "SPA" kind of guy until I went to visit my sister in Chicago for a weekend and she had us all lined up for an afternoon getting pedicures...

Since then, I can DEFINATELY see the benefits of getting pampered! I think I could stand eating Fondue while getting a facial and soaking in a tub... (Or I can just send it to my sister!?!?!)

Nicole said...

What a great giveaway! They are both pretty awesome stuff but of course I would love to have #1 for Mad. Thanks for giving us a chance to win!
