The first giveaway was from the super awesome Sarah of yesandyes.org. The lovely Sarah, is friends with Kelly Williams Brown, of Adulting fame (so jealous). Kelly just published her first book, Adulting, which claims to teach you how to be an adult in 438 easy(ish) steps. While I pretend that I am adult and I can believe it most days, I have to say that I was interested in reading the book, if only to look and see what I might be missing. Sarah to my surprise was giving away 3 copies of the book, and all you had to do was leave a comment with a tip to being a better adult. Now Sarah has such a huge readership I never thought that I would win, but I left my tip:
"my best tip for being an adult is that you need to learn that no one is going to tell you what to do, when to, or how to do it. You must learn that if you want things, you need to motivate yourself to get them, no one is going to be their cheerleading you on. "
Guess what? I WON A COPY! I am really excited to read this book (I am a fan of the blog) so check back for a review of the book. I've only got 3/4's left!
As for the second giveaway, this one really excites me (read on to find out why!)! The girl I wish I could steal as my best friend April, from April Maybe gave away a Peachy Apricot Downton Abbey Violet Keychain!
First when I saw that there were a zillion entries, I didn't think I would win. Then I won! Cue the excitement! Did I mention how excited I am!! Why am I so excited you might ask?
- I love Downton Abbey! How could you not love a period piece!? The accents! The costumes! Haven't seen it? Get to Netflix now!
- I AM GETTING A CAR! My first car in two years! I will be mobile once again!
I can't wait to add this lovely keychain to my ring! Maybe now I'll drive to April and steal her back to New York. Now that I've typed that I realize how creepy it sounds. I don't mean to be creepy, but April is pretty awesome!
I feel very lucky and these two lovely ladies brought much joy to my life this past month! Thank you so much Sarah and April!
