Y3W: and a giveaway!

Wow... I can't believe it's been 2 years since my very first blog post {and you can see how far I've come!}

Blogging is something that I never thought I would do. Ever. I mean... I'm boring. Who would actually be interested in reading anything I have to say? But, I was a victim of peer pressure, like so many are. All my friends were doing it, so why wasn't I?

Once I started, I immediately liked it. I didn't care who else was reading it. I was. It was for me. It was all mine and I could say and write whatever I wanted. Now, here we are two years later, and I just love looking back on the different events that happened in our life. In Carter's life.

And, in just 3 short weeks... in Brynn's life.

So, in honor of my blogaversary, let's have a little giveaway! What does the winner get, you may ask? Well... you'll receive a free {single-sided} custom card design, courtesy of 9 Designs :) You can use the card design for birth announcements, birthday invitations, or whatever else you would like! It can be used now or saved for later. I will then put everyone in the True Random Generator and allow it to select a winner!

Here's how to enter the giveaway. Each thing that you do below, counts as a separate entry, therefore each person has up to 3 chances to win! {#1 is mandatory to enter}

1. Comment on this post with your name and email address {so that I can contact you if you win!}

2. Become a follower {if you are not already} and add a comment that you are now following the blog. For those that are already a follower, you can add an additional comment stating that you already follow the blog! =)

3. VOTE FOR ME! You can click the icon below to place a vote for me on Top Baby Blogs. I've moved up quickly thanks to all of your lovely votes, and I'm up to #27! Of course, I'd love to be in the top 25 blogs, so if you vote, just add a comment that you placed a vote for me. This is the honor system, of course, but I know all of my wonderful readers are very honest people ;)

Help Our Rank & Visit Top Baby Blogs, Baby Blog Directory!

The entry deadline is Monday, April 26th at 8:00 am EST.

Happy Blogaversary.... to meeeeeee! Thanks so much for everything over the last two years.
