In the spirit

In the last 2 weeks, I won this

and of course, THIS

The book was a perfect read for me! It was good and easy-nothing too deep, but with great detail that made envisioning the story fun. It was my rainy day book last week and I finished it in one day! Thanks Jen!

The printer, well, what can I say. It was so neat to win that! I am bummed that we had just bought a new printer several months ago. But this new one is even nicer and I can't wait to print pictures from it! Thanks 5M4M!

What I neglected to mention was another little treat I won a few days after the printer! Look what I received from Melissa just today!

I received a beautiful scripture bracelet, a Starbucks GC, and a cute bookmark!

I stuck my bracelet on immediately and wore it the rest of the day! "I can do everything through Him that gives me strength." Philippians 4:13. My son saw it on me today and was asking all kinds of questions about it. He thought it was nice that "Melwissa" sent it to me. When I told him what it said, he was all "Hey, we learned that at church!".

Thank you Melissa! I love all of it and the bracelet is a true treasure!

Sooooooo, I was thinking!

Why be greedy?

In the spirit of giving, I am going to pass on a few of my treats to one of you!

(Keep your hands off my printer people! And YES, we actually have a Starbucks here! Well, at least for now since it is on the closure list-boo hoo!)

I thought I would pair up the book with my new bookmark! See me sharing the "love"!

(Yes, I know! What you really want is my son's Superman placemat in the background!)

Nothing complicated. Just leave a comment here at this post. Book recommendations might be nice, but not mandatory! I will stop counting comments on Thursday, August 28th at 10 pm CST and randomly draw a winner. I will announce Friday morning!

Anybody giving away a trip to Hawaii anytime soon?!!

Don't you love it when you can read a book in a day. I have days like that when I can't put the book down. It will be great to see how many people can share the love and pass the book around.

(Obviously I don't need to be in the drawing since I sent you the book :)

Wow - what a winning streak you've been on! Congratulations! I would love to have a new printer, maybe I need to be on the lookout for another contest!
Hmmm...a book you can read in a day? That might be one I could actually find the time to read! Looks like a good one!

Oh, and by the way...I tagged you!

Well, dang, girl!! You have been so blessed lately! I need to come and rub some of that off on me - I never won any of those giveaways I entered. Bleh!

Shipping to me might just be a wee bit expensive, so don't enter me. But I did want to stop by and congratulate you on all your goodies!

Mel's World said...

You, my friend, are SO very welcome!!! I am glad you enjoyed it and love that you were able to win!

I am also glad to hear that it has "sparked" some conversations with your son as well! How awesome is that?!?!

Can't wait to chat on Friday!

What?! Not giving away the printer?!

I finished "The Double Bind" by Chris Bojhalian (not sure if I spelled that right) just before Bug got here. It was really good.

Of course, I don't think I'll be reading many books in the next few months.

Wow you have been blessed lately. Good for you! Since my preggo belly keeps me at home more, I've been reading up a storm. It also doesn't help that there is nothing good to watch on TV. Just finished Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd... it was pretty good.
