LOL and JL Giveaway!

I know I've been promising this giveaway for a week now, but you didn't think I'd let you down, did you? I have only been blogging for a few months, but I'm surprised at what an enjoyable part of my life it has become. Comments from readers are like crack and I get way more excited about them than getting emails or Facebook messages any day! I love how well I've gotten to know some of you through reading your blogs and sharing mine and I hope to get to know all of you much better! Out of excitement of 50 followers plus wins on 5 other bloggers' giveaways (so far, I don't plan to stop entering) I figured it was time to host my own.

Here is what's at stake:

This pretty set of Liberty of London prep bowls comes tied up in a ribbon and would be lovely at a Spring or Summer brunch or to brighten up the kitchen and would make a perfect hostess gift. I drooled over them as soon as I saw them and knew I needed a set and one of you did too! If you've been wondering what all the hype is about in the blog world over the new Liberty of London line, get thee to a Target! Fabulous cheery prints by the famous Liberty of London are all over the store. I have a bathing suit, blouse, watering can, and these bowls from it now, and I'm waiting till they get my size back in stock for a new dress!

Along with the bowls comes one of my favorite cookbooks so that you'll have plenty of great ideas for what to whip up in them. I love Junior League cookbooks in general because everything in there is tried and true by excellent hostesses so you know what you make will turn out pretty and delicious. Peace Meals by the Houston Chapter of the Junior League is the best I've seen!

Here are the rules to enter:

  1. You must be a follower of this blog to win. Friends and family are eligible, as are you, no matter where you live.

  2. You need to have your email available in your profile so I can contact you or you can leave it in your comment.

  3. To enter, leave a comment asking a question you'd like me to answer. Silly or serious, easy or hard, it doesn't matter to me, but in the interest of knowing each other better, I'd like to put together a question and answer post in the next week or two.

  4. If you think your Twitter followers, Facebook friends or Blog readers would like to know about my giveaway, I would love for you to share it with them. There aren't any extra entries for this though, I want to make it as easy and fair as possible!

  5. The giveaway will run for one week. Next Tuesday, March 30th, I'll gather up all the entries and use a random number generator to pick the winner and contact them by email!

Good luck to all of you! I have been so thrilled to win each giveaway that I've won and I want the same excitement for a lucky one of you!!
