My First GIVEAWAY!!!

Good morning all. (it’s still morning for us West Coasters anyway)

I’m excited to finally announce my first giveaway. I never imagined that I’d be asked to do a giveaway on my blog, but I’m thrilled and hope to be able to do more in the near future.

I was just recently contacted by a representative from CSN about hosting this giveaway and obviously accepted. I knew CSN from other blog giveaways that I’ve entered. They have a lot of different websites and endless items. From bar stools, to baby toys, to kitchen essentials.

Which brings me to the giveaway item. Inspired by my desire to make Malakai’s baby food on my own (a separate post on that coming soon), I chose to give a Kalorik Sunny Morning Hand Blender/Mixer in Lime Green. I chose it because I’ve read that hand blenders are great for pureeing baby food and it comes with a handy little mixing cup.

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post. It can be about anything. This first entry is mandatory before acquiring additional entries. Also mandatory, having an easily accessible email address on your blog profile or leaving it in the comments.

For additional entries (leave an additional comment for each entry):

  • follow my blog publicly- 1 entry
  • blog about this give away- 2 entries! (please be sure to link your specific post to the comment)
  • follow me on twitter & tweet with a link to this giveaway-1 entry
  • add my button to your blog- 1 entry (again, be sure to leave me a link to your blog)
  • add me to your blog roll- 1 entry
The contest will be closed at midnight next Wednesday, February 3rd (one week from today) and the winner will be announced on Thursday February 4th.

Disclosure: I have received no compensation or merchandise from CSN

update: I’m participating in the Giveaway Blog Hop!

    We have a little guy due in April, and when he's ready to start eating "real" food, I was planning on making his baby food also, like I did with our first son. This would be much more convenient than using our traditional blender like I did last time. Thanks for the chance!
