Have you guys missed the stick figures?

Thanks, guys!  The giveaway's now closed, but everyone with comments below WINS!  Yea!

It's true.  You do.  I can't believe there're 300 of you out there reading this right now.  That, to me, feels HUGE.  

So you know what that means, right?  Yep.  You deserve something pretty.  Not just one of you.  Not just two of you.  No, no, we're talking big here.  Something big enough to compare to the bigness of YOU.  (Not that I'm calling you fat... I'll just stop there.)  

First, of all, my 300th follower is (was?):
Poppies and Poetry!
She's got a cute etsy shop, so pop over to her blog.  THANKS, Poppies and Poetry!  You win one of the giveaways by default! 

And now, the something huge?

WHAT:  A barrette with a cluster of three rolled rosettes made out of knit and/or cotton.  Much like these (but with only three flowers):

WHO: Anyone who comments on this post.

Seriously, anyone who comments on this post.  Ready for the rules?

1. You must be a follower.  Because, you know, this is to thank my followers.
2. You must comment before Saturday at 8:00 AM.
3. You must include your email address.
4. You must state your color(s) of choice AND your favorite thing about bugaboo, mini, mr & me.  Because feeling like a million bucks isn't good enough.  I want an even bigger head.

If you don't follow the above stated 4 RULES, you don't win.  I will do my best to get you your color(s) of choice.  I will also do my best to get these to you in as timely a fashion as possible, depending, of course, on how many people comment.

(And if no one comments on here, you know that will make me feel the OPPOSITE of a million bucks, right?  I think this is quite possibly the easiest giveaway to win in the history of blogging.)

Once again, this giveaway ends on Saturday morning at 8 AM.

Ready?  Set?  GO!

Stephanie Thigpen said...

THIS MAKES ME SO HAPPY!! :) Okay, back to the fact that I can get excited about just winning a giveaway without ACTUALLY trying, just reading a blog. YAY! Okay, here we go...

1. Yes, I am a follower! Stephanie Thigpen
2. It's Sat before 8am! :)
4. I love the yellow, white, and navy that you have pictured above! But if you could swap out the navy with a grey? Would make my entire life. -- I think my favorite thing would be that you can always come here and find something that you want to do! Whether it be one of your tutorials or recipes, you can tell that you just make life fun! :)

Okay, I hope that was good enough. And again, YAY!

Ahhh! I'm so excited about this! I've followed you with my Google reader for a while now, but I've also added myself to your follower list on the right now. I would love a barrette in pink, black, and white, although really, any colors would be fine. :) Thank you, and I love your blog because you're always so genuine!


Kara Finley said...

I want one! I want one! I love reading your blog for 3 reasons:
1. I went to high school with you.
2. Your writing is clever, smart, and entertaining.
3. As a fellow mom, I love the kid stuff, the yummy food, and the easy-not-a-lot-of-sewing crafts that are made from stuff you already have or thrifty stuff and usually easy enough to do during naptime ;)

*I would love a barrette in brown or black or a combo!

I hope I win!!

Amy said...

Wow, lady, you ARE crazy! But super generous! My email is I love pinks. And the thing I love MOST (which was not easy to narrow down, because I lovelovelove your blog) is your sense of humor! You are very real and it comes out in your writing! So I get a healthy dose of humor and reality along with all those fun tutorials and recipes! Did I mention I LOVE it?!

Bree said...

Seriously Kimberly? You are amazing! That what I like best about you. :) I guess what I like best about your blog (if I absolutely MUST pick just one thing) are the hilarious stories you share about your kids. You have a great way of sharing your stories.

I'd say any bright colors - orange, yellow, teal, hot pink - anything spring-y this time of year!

Unknown said...

you are completely amazing!!! i have been following for quite some time now and i love everything about your blog! your personality, your tutorials and yummy mondays(which comes in handy since i am learning how to cook since i started staying home!)

i love the color combo of purple,yellow and white!!!

A H said...

That is awesome, thank you!!! My email is, and I love anything blue. The best thing about your blog is the recipes, I have made a couple already and have only been following for a short time!

Mindie Hilton said...

You are crazy cool for doing this! Of course I follow your blog. My email is I love turquoise, pinks, greens, purple, you name it. You have great taste, anything you would choose for this blond will be fabulous. I love that you admit to not being perfect. At my blog Bacon Time with the Hungry Hungry Hypo, I do the same. I like to see that nobodies perfect and to just have fun with it all. Love your positive outlook. Thanks again for this giveaway and your blog. So glad I found it.

3. My e-mail address is
4. My color(s) of choice are red and/or blue so my girls can wear it with their school uniforms. My favorite thing is how you keep it "real", and talk about things gone awry, not just everything perfect. And, because you were one of my first friends when I moved to Wisconsin! :D
