The Birthday Celebration Continues - The Last Giveaway!

The winner of Birthday Giveaway #3 can be found here.

-------------------------------------

Hi Lovelies! I'm sad that this is the end to a wonderful month full of celebrating...well, ME! Thank you all so much for joining in on the fun! I hope that you winners are excited about your prizes and that those who haven't won give it one more shot! After all, this could be your lucky week :)

My weekend consisted of laying out a lot (poor bf's chest is so bright red!) and going to a Rock Band charity event. I humiliated myself trying to play the drums to Oasis' Wonderwall. Seriously, I was so embarassed, but I'm really glad I wasn't playing the guitar or bass or even worse, singing. All in the name of charity though!

This week we have corporate visitors at our work so it's dress up EVERY DAY! I like to think that my co-workers are dressing up for my birthday week! And we're having a company lunch on Friday (I like to think that's for me too)...I'm only this self-centered when it comes to my birthday I promise. I'm getting very excited...the bf and I already have all of our plans for this weekend. I will reveal later in the week!

-------------------------------------

I guess it's time to get to the real reason you're all here - my last giveaway!! I am very excited about this one (I say that every time though) because it's all about SUMMER! I welcome the warm weather in the beginning, but by June I'm already ready for winter again! Honestly I can't stand to sweat! Oh well, it's just the beginning so I'm still excited about it!

One of the first blogs I ever started following was my flip flopz. Susie creates the cutest handpainted signs that can say anything you want! She sells her work on her etsy shop, but I am giving one reader the chance to win a sign with the saying of her choice! Go check her blog out and her etsy shop too! You won't regret it. And if you don't win, you'll probably want to buy one for yourself. Perfect for summer, wouldn't you say??!

I thought and thought about what else to include in this giveaway. It was going to be a Tervis Tumbler and monogrammed beach towel, but the wonderful Emily over at From the Land of Cotton did that last week! And I saw that someone else was doing a monogrammed towel giveaway as well. Then yesterday I woke up and realized exactly what else I wanted to include.

The winner will receive an LL Bean Boat and Tote Bag, open-top, size Medium with their choice of color and monogram! These totes are perfect for a quick weekend getaway or a trip to the pool!

What else goes perfectly with summer? Why, flip flops of course! LL Bean Maine Isle flip flops to be exact! These come in a number of styles like lobsters, honey bees, anchors, sailboats, and watermelons. They will be the perfect addition to any casual summer day.


Enter by April 24 (the day before my birthday!) at 8 pm EST to have a chance of winning!

Rules are simple:

1 entry - comment on this post with your choice of flip flop style (link is above) - entries without this information will be automatically excluded

2 entries - follow me or let me know you're already a follower

3 entries - post about my giveaway on your blog or blog sidebar (make sure to link it back to my giveaway post!)

4 entries - add my button to your blog

And for 2 extra entries, become a follower of Susie's blog here or let me know you already follow her.

There are a total of 12 possible entries per person! Let me know in ONE comment what you have done and I will figure out how many entries you receive!

-------------------------------------

I will announce a winner on my birthday, April 25th!

Oh yeah - this is my 100th post! Who would have thought?? I will have a late 100th post giveaway next month :)
