Black Friday Giveaway!

Hello! As you can very well see, I did a whole mess of shopping today. The endeavor started when I woke up at 2:30, we were in the car at 3:15, and at Target before four! Yes, I've always doubted my sanity. I actually didn't pick up very many things for myself while shopping. In the spirit of giving, I got mostly gifts for other people. People like YOU!

As a thank you to my wonderful readers, it's Black Friday Giveaway time!

What could it be?

I couldn't wait until next week to start this giveaway! I'm giving away two sets of hair bows, a harmonica necklace (both from forever 21) and a pair of grey over the knee socks from Delia's. To enter:

1. Follow my blog and let me know how you follow (blog lovin or google friend connect)
2. Let me know your favorite thing about Christmas in your comment

I'm so excited! This will be open until next Tuesday night, and I'll pick the winner Wednesday or Thursday! You have all been so great to me, and I can't wait to give back :)

Have a lovely weekend!

    My favourite thing about Christmas is the fact that even though it feels so dead and cold outside, my spirit feels so warm and I sense such joy and peace. At the same time I worry about all the people who are actually dying and starving around me so I really love reaching out this time of year especially.

  10. Hi!!! I've been a follower through BlogLoving and I love love love your style!
    My favorite thing about christmas is to be able to spend time with family and friends and of course my two doxies. I love the smell of homemade food, the laughs, the giggles and the time we get to spend together.

  12. You mean you went shopping at 4am?! Is this like an annual thing you guys do in the US, like after xmas sales but before xmas!? *Confussed & slightly jelous English gal*

    1 - I follow you through google friend connect!
    2 - My favourite thing about christmas is usually my brother & me waking my parents up & opening our stocking presents at the foot of their bed, such fun family times, no matter how old we get(yes im nearly 21! hehe). This year will be more special because my family moved to Australia, so I will be seeing them for the 1st time in 3 months and i'll get to make some new Aussie xmas memories, 40 degrees & a bbq on the beach, wooahh!

  15. Oh my gosh, totally entering! I use GFF to follow you. :) And my favorite thing about Christmas has to be the cold air and cuddling up in warm knits, drinking hot chocolate, being with your family, cooking and the smell of cooking, and decorating. That's more than one thing. OH WELL. :D

    Goodness, you got up so early! We went at 10 after all the early birds went, haha. You got such a haul! Awesome stuff. :D

  16. hehe You are so cute! You are also the sweetest for doing the giveaway! I follow you via bloglovin'. My favorite thing about Christmas is definitely having the whole family together, but I also can't wait for some eggnog! (:


  17. Ohhh hellz YEAH, giveaway time?! I'm so there!

    So I love following you via Google Friend Connect, AND, hmmm...this next part is difficult...BEST part about Christmas is the cheeriness. There's a crazy frantic happiness surrounding the holiday and I love getting wrapped up in it!

  18. my favorite part of christmas is actually the day after thanksgiving. i have two dear friends who come to town and come over every year and help me put up my tree- it's one of the few times i see them and it's our tradition :) we get to catch up and spend time together.

    following you with google!

    ps- i can't believe you got up that early!

  19. NICOLE. You're crazy, haha! That's such a boatload of stuff. This year, I wasn't brave enough to venture off early in the morning so I opted to sit at home and shop online. I bet you picked out amazing gifts anyways. I wonder how you carried all of those bags...unless you had help, haha.

    I follow you through GFC (obviously), and my favorite thing about Christmas is the Christmas party my extended family and I go to every year. It's all about home cooked meals, seeing everyone after a year of maturing, and fun games and opening presents. Each family has to bring $20 and a gender-neutral gift, and each family gets a raffle ticket. And each of these gifts are raffled off to a family. And then the money pot is also raffled off to a lucky winner, haha. Plus, our aunt goes crazy with scavenger hunts and video games so there's never a dull moment. :)

  20. This is an adorable giveaway:)
    I follow you via google friend connect.
    My favorite thing about Christmas is sleeping over at my mom's on Christmas Eve and waking up to her Christmas french toast and custard breakfast, then reading the Christmas story as a family before opening gifts.
    P.S. You are a very brave girl to go out at that time on black Friday:)

  21. wow!! look at all of those bags!!! you're kind of making me wish i had braved the crowds on friday... oh well! i'm totally going to have to enter to win all of those adorable things you bought :)

    my favorite thing about christmas is just hanging out with my family (and dog) in front of the woodstove, drinking eggnog. it's so cozy and relaxing and... home :)

  22. 1) I follow you through google
    2) Christmas has always been my favorite holiday for many reasons but I guess my favorite thing about Christmas is how it brings my whole family together every year. It's really special to get to be with each other during the holidays and everything seems more beautiful than usual... maybe it's the twinkling lights lol

    This giveaway is so sweet by the way :)
