Virtural Friends...Become Real Friends REALLY with a GIVEAWAY

Here is my story:
I might have mentioned a time or two that I started my blog in the hopes of finding something for myself! Something that I could sink my teeth, something just for me - a stress relief! I never could have imagined the support, encouragement and comments that I have received. I also have found SO many blogs that I feel I can not live without reading BUT never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that I would have found a blogger that has become a TRUE FRIEND.

I am referring to my wonderful BLOG FRIENDS BOOK CLUB partner, my texter, my encourager, my person that religiously reads all of the my posts and leaves wonderful comments, the person that I have eventually connected to via phone and helps me in so many ways.

Now this girl is amazing. I am a person that has a 150+ million ideas - good ideas I might add. But the second I talk to her BAM she runs with it and makes it into the wonderfulness that it can be AKA this dual giveaway!

So without further wait here is my Virtual Friend turned into my REAL Friend

Lindsay at From Nanny to Family
Isn't she so beautiful! And a wonderful heart!

Now take the two of us and what do you get?? A couple of crazy honest wonderful hearted ladies that are enjoying our time in this blogger world. So we have teamed together to do this amazing giveaway for everyone!!

Here is Lindsay's story:
When I first started blogging back in January I had no clue what I was really getting into. I didn't know html or hell even what a "button" was. I was a mess. I created my own Blogger account armed with only my ability to type the English word.

Blog land can be super hard to navigate. It's never ending with blogs and I wish wish wish I had the time to read every blog out there. I learn so much from these bloggers which is something I never expected. One of the things that I had noticed right off the bat about blog land is that it seemed like several blogs that I would venture into had a blog bestie. My honest thought was 'for real?'. Honestly I had no freaking clue how to make an IRL bestie let alone a blog bestie. I just could not wrap my brain around how that would actually work.

Then I met Sharee and she changed all of that for me.

She's so damn cute- love her!

But hot damn she lives all the way out in CA, which with me living in Ohio, she might as well be living in another country. After a few emails back and forth we quickly moved onto texting and then actually talking on the phone. For the love of everything why oh why can't we live closer to each other?!

I seriously never thought it was possible to actually connect with other bloggers and I am loving the support and friendship that I have been surrounded with. Soooooo . . .

. . . in honor of all things friends, loves, and September Sharee and I are sooooo excited to announce our Starbucks & Target gift card giveaway!!!

  7. Hi! I'm a new follower!

    My favorite starbucks drink... Well... I grew up in Seattle and don't like coffee... yikes! But, it used to be salted caramel hot chocolate, but last year dairy and I stopped being great friends so I can't have it much anymore... But my husband loves coffee and to save the wallet he drinks black coffee with half and half and splenda... but he LOVES Cappuccino. :) I'm so long-winded!
