Our First Giveaway!

We're BAAAAACK!!! Yay!

We had a fabulous time on our cruise. I will be sharing more details in the future, but first things first. We searched high and low, and in three, yes THREE countries to find the perfect item in our first ever bloggie giveaway. We wanted something not easily found in America, something practical, and something most of our readers would like. That's quite a task, people!

And what did we find....

Drumroll, please....

It's vanilla from Mexico! WOO!!! I have had some of this stuff for a couple of years from the last time I went and let me tell ya, it's AWESOME. And this is a half liter. So you will pretty much never run out. All you bakers out there want this, believe me. And it's not the imitation stuff.

So how can you win this prize? Here are the rules:
1. Leave a comment and you will be entered into the giveaway.
2. Put a link on your blog to this giveaway and you can enter yourself twice (by leaving one additional comment)
***Edit: YOU MUST PUT YOUR NAME WITH YOUR COMMENT!! If it says "anonymous", how will I know who wins?***

Then we will randomly draw the winning number and see who the lucky person is.We will draw the winner at 9:00am on Wednesday morning.

In the meantime, I finally got my wedding pictures. I am VERY excited. Until I do a blog about that, here is  a sneak peak! (-: And cruise photos will come, too! (-:



  1. Awesome give-away and excited to see the wedding pictures!
    I'm a new follower by the way =)

  2. So glad that you had a great time on your cruise. The pictures on facebook look like it was a blast! Vanilla is an awesome first giveaway. B.J. and I just ran out of the vanilla we got on our honeymoon. Have a good week.

  3. I'm so J... but fortunately I'm going on a cruise in January. So I'm not too J. You know how it goes. But I definitely want to win me some flavor of ice cream out there.

    We should get together some time soon and talk cruise. Looks like y'all had a great time!
