1000 Posts!!! And my VERY FIRST GIVEAWAY

I just hit 1000 posts! WOOHOO! I've been rambling on and on for almost six years and 1000 posts now. Lucky you. And to celebrate, one lucky reader will get 1000 dollars!!!

Psyche.


Okay, I'm not giving away a thousand bucks. But I will do something else. My first giveaway. Ever. Yes, I'm finally selling out! :) But I don't look at it that way. I look at it as a way to give back to my wonderful readers!!




So here are the rules:

Leave ONE comment on THIS POST telling me what you love most about this blog(yes, I'm needing some ego strokes here...:) and you'll receive ONE entry.



If you are a follower of my blog(or become a follower), you will receive THREE additional entries(make sure to comment on this post one time for each entry).
If you post about this giveaway on your blog or link this post on Facebook, you will receive FIVE additional entries!


Again, make sure you comment for each entry! Basically each comment is a number so if you only leave one comment for all of your entries, you are cheating yourself. Leave a comment for each entry and you have more chances to win! One lucky winner will be randomly selected by a random number generator and notified via email (if I don't have your email please leave it in one of your comments!)



Winner will be selected and announced on Friday, June 3 at 11:59pm.



Oh, and the prize. . . .drumroll please. . .







$15 giftcard to Cold Stone Creamery! Okay, so its not 1000 bucks or even close, but I ain't made of money y'all:) I thought I'd share my crazy love of sweets with one of you! Cold Stone is SO yummy!!! Good luck!

So fun Holly!! I love everything about your blog, are you kidding?!? Your humor especially, but definitely your real honesty. You tell it like it is. Love it.

Congrats on your thousandth post Holly! I love you to bits. Don't count me in on the giveaway though, coz it would be too far for me to go to redeem the goodies! I just wanted to say congrats to one of my favourite bloggers! xxoo

I have been a follower for years and I will mention you on my facebook and next blog.... so does that allow me to make 300 entries????

Many hugs, Lura

I think blogs are one of the things that have kept us close this last few years and now that we're back in the same place (relatively speaking), we can meet at a Coldstone when I win this giveaway and have a treat together! :)

I like that you share the gospel! It goes a long way to talk about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on the internet. Loved that Elder Oaks wrote back. So sweet.
