My First Giveaway!

Welcome to my 61st post and my first giveaway! I know most people do first time giveaways at post 50 or 100 but I thought I'd change things up a bit. Plus it really helps me to face my OCD tendencies head on.

I know. You're thinking, "Her? OCD? REALLY?" Just ask Nathan. I have this "need" for numbers to be "my kind" of even. Like when I'm listening to the radio in the car the volume has to be set to a multiple of five. That's why I call it "my kind" of even. I know five isn't an even number but it is evenly between zero and ten. Which makes it even in my head.

Please don't try to make sense of this. It's all "hockey puck-rattle snake-monkey monkey-underpants" up there if you know what I mean.

So anyways, the GIVEAWAY! Yay!

I'm creating a Valentine's Gift box with some of my favorite things. The contents are a surprise. Mostly because I haven't purchased them yet. But I have lots of ideas including: pedicure kits, chocolates, coffee and other Valentine's sweets.

To enter you just need to leave a comment below telling me how wonderful I am.

Just kidding. Just leave a comment below and you'll be entered!

For three extra chances to win do the following:

  • Facebook or Twitter about this giveaway (including the link always helps!)
  • Follow me! Just click on the Follow button on the left side of this page. If you already follow me let me know.
  • Post about this giveaway on your blog with a link back here.
And when your done come back here and leave a comment for each. I will be accepting names until Sunday the 7th when I'll have one of my kiddos pull a name from a hat. Real formal, I know. Good luck!

Oh cool, I am comment number 10 and that is even, so I win right? Just kidding. I totally get the numbers thing because I have a crazy thing with checking thing 3 times before my mind excepts it. Like rechecking 3 times that I unplugged the straighten iron, or shut the fridge door. I know, just crazy, but it is who I am. Thanks for the giveaway.

I would be posting this without your giveaway (although, I do think it is cleaver) - anyway, I share the need for things to be my "brand of even" as well, including the need for the radio dial to be set in multiples of five. I tend to freak out when Jeremy turns it up or down and messes up my crazy system. I also count words and if I end it on an uneven number of fingers then I have to keep counting words until it ends evenly...blah, blah, blah - you get the picture!
Also, thanks for being so encouraging to me with the comments that you leave on my blog!
You're great:)
