A Year Of Bloggity Bloggin -- CASH GIVEAWAY!

Hello hello!!

Today is it!!!

A year ago today I started this lil' ole bloggity blog. So I declare today in my world, Blogaversary day!!

But first a quick detour to the weekend...

We had a great Valentines Day with the hubs, we ate, we hung out, we watched a movie and had fun relaxing. He works 10-12 hours a day in a Farm Equipment Factory so he enjoys a nice relaxing bath. I picked him up his favorite Dr. Teel's epson salt, foaming bath, a new bathroom candle, water color tablets, his favorite peace tea and this super funny card:


At first I was going to get a super mush filled lovey-dove card, but then I saw this. I knew the hubs would laugh hard at it so I just wrote a long not to stick in with it, with my own words, not hallmarks.

I told him I didn't want or need anything but like almost all guys, he doesn't take no for an answer.

He nailed it. 
What girl doesn't love jewelry and Victorias Secret?

I've always known he was a keeper, I'm glad he still thinks the same of me :)

So back to the blog-land....

When I started this blog I did it for me. I way to keep myself accountable, connect with others with similar goals and help support others reach those goals. Never did I expect anyone more than just my mom to read this.

I'm so so happy to have all the readers that I do have. The support they provide is and has been amazing. I'm also thrilled with the new friends I've met (real life and just online). 
You guys just are so awesome.

My first goal when I was starting out was to lose weight. Over the last year, I've lost 70 pounds. So today I'm giving away $70 cash to a lucky reader. $1 for every pound. 

Who doesn't want some easy breezy cash?!



Giveaway ends Thursday night, winner announced Friday!

Here are some of my favorite/most popular posts from the last year. Bounce around and enter away!!!
