Who's Feeling Lucky?

Oh my word, I love free stuff!! Especially close to the holidays.

One of my lucky blog readers is in for a great early Christmas gift, thanks to my friend, Hillary.

A little backgroud here: Hillary and I first met nine or ten years ago (it all runs together these days :) We served together on the Board of Directors of the American Heart Association and hit it off immediately. She's a hoot! We ended up having kids around the same time and would run into each other from time to time. Then we found each other again in the blogosphere. She has one of the funniest blogs you'll ever read - The Other Mama.

Then, not too long ago, she apparently fell and hit her head because she decided to start a business while pregnant with her third child.

Crazy I tell you.

It has a deliciously Southern name - Mint Julep Monograms - and is an online monogram boutique. You'll find original gift ideas for babies, teachers, friends, family and all holiday needs. And according to Hillary, "She may or may not be drinking Mint Juleps while monogramming (okay- most likely not, but wouldn’t that be lovely?)."

Here's the best part - a lucky blog reader o' mine will win a $30 shop credit to be spent at Mint Julep Monograms! Just in time for the holidays!

Here's how you enter. Visit www.mintjulepmonograms.com, peruse the items, then leave a comment on my blog about your favorite item. The contest will run through Sunday night. I'll let random.org choose the winner and I'll post that person's name first thing Monday morning.

One more thing: only one entry per comment. However, if you'd like to be entered twice, join Mint Julep's Facebook fan page at www.facebook.com/mintjulepmonograms and leave me a comment letting me know about it. You'll also receive sales codes, discount info and info on clearance sale items.

So who on your Christmas list needs a cute monogrammed something this year?

Be sure to enter!! Happy Shopping and good luck!

Yay for giveaways!

I love her website & I started following her blog either last year or the year before. She's very funny!

It's so hard to pick one item but I think one of my favs is the quilted weekender bag & also the wine bag. The wine bag would make a great Christmas gift & it is a great price!

Also "liked" her on FB. I also noticed she has the same last name as my maiden name. How funny!

Angie said...

Oh my goodness....my daughter would have a ball with this!!! I can't decide which I like better the Just carry all tote or the All occasion tote - LOVE both!!

I also liked her on FB and plan to look at her blog and possibly start following.

Thanks for this chance to win something free but also for letting us know of this great site to order monograms from!

BTW-I LOVE your blog, your realness, the way you share Jesus through your blog, and keeping up with your family, especially the girl. Your were our favorite on Channel 19 News (still are)!

Love the quilted bags and the owl applique is SUPER cute!! Since we will be GSES Owls in less than a month, I can totally see me needed a couple of shirts and maybe a teacher tote with that!!

Thanks - cute site and ALL southern girls have to monogram!

Hard to choose, but I think I like the monogrammed Christmas stockings the best. Cute website with very cute items. Thanks for sharing!

Miranda said...

I would love to have the Christmas stockings! They would look great on my fireplace! Thanks so much for this opportunity!

nat said...

Lots of cute things there. I like the houndstooth market basket and I really love the holiday scroll apron if I were getting something for myself. I don’t do facebook so this will be my only entry but I’m keeping my fingers crossed!

Ashley said...

A giveaway!! You're really big time now girl!! :-)

I'm going to be selfish and pick something for myself. How rude!! But I really like the Sassy Scroll Large Shoulder Tote. I keep all my couponing stuff in a free bag from clinique right now and it really needs replaced with something nice like this!

And soooo much more!

Oh I love MJM. Hillary jokes that I should just direct deposit all my money to her! So a free $30 would be great!

If I had to pick a favorite, I say the JOY christmas applique ... I love appliqued shirts for my little girl :-)

Love the stockings--we need new ones! But I could also use the market tote or the aprons for me and my girl! Too hard to choose, but I'm sure I could narrow it down!
