$50 Pottery Barn Giveaway!!!

This is my first giveaway. I just wanted to thank all the
great people who have stopped by my little blog and
showed me blog love. When I first started blogging it was
for me to have a creative outlet and for my children to
maybe one day look back at our lives and see all the things
we have done and recipes they can carry on.

The one thing I never expected was the friendship's that
would come along because of blogging. I'm grateful and
you have made my heart bigger. The Giveaway is my way
of saying, Thank you. Whether you have been with me
from the start or just today.

All you have to do to win is....You must follow my blog to enter
and just leave me a comment and let me know what your favorite
holiday food is..... A winner will be chosen one week from
today. Good luck. I know we all LOVE Pottery Barn!!

  37. my favorite food is something my mom makes called Cranberry Fluff. i'm sure she's not the only mom on the planet to make this delight, but i don't think i've ever met another family who knows what it is.

    it consists of cranberries, pineapple, marshmallows, and whipped cream. it's so tangy and sweet it makes your cheeks burns! it's really a great dessert and doesn't leave you feeling like you just ate a ton of bricks. :)

  66. Val - I love that you are doing this! I totally want to say "DITTO" to everything you said. I just love my new blogging friends. I just started this in July - had no idea what I was doing - and it is so much better than I expected.
