Giveaway! Fourth of July style!


The Fourth of July is quickly coming upon us and one of YOU can win this set of oh-so patriotic set of blocks!!!

I love the Fourth! I love that I live in a country where I have the freedom to start a blog and write mindless, jibble jabble. Is jibble jabble a word?

I love that I live in a country where I can proudly display my Americana nick knacks.

I love that I live in a country that celebrates the birth of our nation, BIG time! Fireworks, barbecues, cute kiddies dressed in red white and blue, and parades!

It makes me want to break out into song... a Lee Greenwood song.

I'm proud to be an American

where at least I know I'm free,

And I won't forget the men who died

who gave that right to me,

and I gladly STAND-UP next to you and defend her still today,

'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this laaaaaand

Gob bless the U.S.A!!!!!

Okay enough of that patriotic-nous.

You can win this set of cute, patriotic blocks by answering one question...


Mine you ask? Well mine is making our annual trek to my small hometown in Wyomin' and watching the 'beer wagon float', in our local parade, hand out free beer to the town folk. Okay, not really. But it does make for good entertainment. (Click Here to partake of hometown's 4th of July festivities)

Oh hey! Do you want to know how you can have ANOTHER chance to win the ultra, cute, patriotic set of blocks? Link me on your own cute blogs then come back here and let me know in the comments section!

And do you want to know how you can have THREE chances to win the colorful, ultra, cute, patriotic set of blocks? Link me AGAIN on your Crackbook, I mean, Facebook page/wall. Come back here again....and let me know in the comments section!

The giveaway will end Friday at midnight and I will have my official winner, picker-er pick a name! Then I will chase him down and try to pry the piece of paper from his pudgy little hands. Then I will read the name and do a cartwheel and jump for joy. Then I will fall down in pain from doing a cartwheel.

Good luck my friends!


  1. Yay! I love it. Our favorite tradition is to go to my mom and dad's and my brothers and bros in law do a huge fire work show with all the stuff everyone brings. My bro in law, Sean, makes a huge fireball with snakes and it has left the road in front of my parents' house black and singed in years past. We also have homemade ice cream.

    Put my name in!!

  2. You are officially linked. Put me in again!

  3. Favorite tradition: I love hanging in the park after the parade for the BBQ. Watching the little kids play games like "spit the watermelon seed" and listening to the bagpipers play.

  4. And you are now linked on my Blog.

  5. And Now you are on my Facebook! Woo Hoo I get three times the entry!

  6. Our fave tradition is the 4th of July breakfast at the park with my Aunts, Uncles and Cousins. Yummy food and fun family! And then we usually go swimming somewhere later on with the family.

  7. This is SAD but we don't have a tradition. We always hated getting woken up at 6am by the firetrucks in Plain City, then we would go to the town breakfast in the park, watch the parade, then go stuff our faces with yummy Navajo Taco's.

    Sadly I don't live there anymore, so I don't attend breakfast, and get there late for the parade, and the Navajo Taco's are icky and soggy these days.

    I would however love to start a new family tradition of lighting fireworks with my kids, and making fun 4th of July foods while singing to the top of our lungs.

    Am I still entered even though I don't have a tradition, and I wrote a novel??

  8. Okay I linked you on my blog.... and on FB.... woohoo.
    I am soooo gonna win this.

  9. JEN! I SO did! When I saw her stuck in there I thought, "Oh dude, how can I get a picture of that..." I was so tempted to go to the top of the bleachers and snap a photo - it was too priceless. Alas, I was chasing my wee toddler around. Oh, and I felt bad for her...oh dear, I'm a mean person.

    I promise though, I have to snap some stealth pictures of some of the Mom's that are there. No lie - there were two of them chatting this morning and I could have sworn they were 17 by the way they talked. One even had lime green toe nail polish. Yep.

  10. SO cute blocks (as usual!)!! The only tradition I remember is always attending the parade that lasted FOREVER! There was tons of candy, though, so that was worth it :) We still take our kids now, although we've found one with a shorter parade route!

  11. I'm late, as usual. But you rule for giving away your awesome crafts. I love that Lee Greenwood song. It makes me feel patriotic when I sing it.


Tell me what you think... only if it compliments me and my, sometimes humorous, sometimes weird, sometimes creative, post! No meanies allowed!
