It is time for another giveaway. Holly from Happy Food Healthy Life is turning 30! Holly. myself and many of her other blogger friends have come together to celebrate her birthday with this amazing giveaway. Having crossed that milestone a few years ago I believe it is important to celebrate. I oddly thought 31 was worse than 30. I am not quite sure why maybe because I was in my 30's and not just 30. There is nothing to be afraid of now that I am here and in my 30's I can still say growing old is not scary. Ask me again in 10 years. :-P
Did you have any problems crossing an age milestone?
Here are Holly's thoughts on what turning 30 means to her :
Well, here we are. The big Three-Oh! Have I been dreading it? I go back and forth between not caring and kicking-and-screaming. My twenties have been full of so many awesome experiences. To name just a few:
* the birth of my son
* finding and honoring my true self
* meeting the love of my life
* recoverying from a long battle of disordered eating
* marrying Tiffani
* travelling to my favorite city (Seattle) and deciding to one day move there
* finding my passion in blogging, baking, and helping others
* making the decision to expand our family with another little one (a journey that will continue into my thirties)
There have been so many memories in my twenties, and I am sad to say goodbye to this decade, but I look forward to what is to come in the next ten years. And I'm excited to celebrate this big day with YOU!! This little corner of the internet wouldn't be here without YOU all, and because of that, I'm going to celebrate by giving one lucky reader a 5-Quart Kitchenaid and a $100 Target gift card.
Honestly, I couldn't live without my 5-quart KitchenAid Mixer, and I know many of my friends who feel the same way. Whether it's to whip up a batch of cookies, knead my favorite pizza dough, or ensure that my arm doesn't fall off when whipping egg whites for what seems like a billion minutes. My KitchenAid makes everything easier! I'm so thrilled to be giving one of you a KitchenAid of your own. And you get to pick the color (of the colors shown above). I got the red mixer after I got married, but which I had one of every color to suit my mood! And the Target gift card... I don't think any explanation is necessary here. Everyone loves Target and ends up wishing they had more Target-bucks to spend when they just went in for laundry detergent and came out with a cart full of $1 items, cute shoes, and holiday decor. Let me help you out with that!
Actually, I've got a few friends that are going to help you out! I have some awesomely supportive blogging friends who wanted to join in the fun and help me celebrate my big thirtieth. About 30 of us are getting together to bring you these awesome prizes for my birthday. I'm all about letting you win on my birthday.... seriously, let's take the focus and attention off of me and divert it to you as a potential new KitchenAid owner!
Pretty please go visit all of my friends pages and show them the support they deserve! Heck, they are as big of a part of this giveaway as I am! I couldn't have done any of this without them. Many of them have gotten me through this last week, as rough as it's been, and literally made this giveaway possible. Without many wonderful blogging friends, I may just be slumped in a big pile of sadness on my 30th birthday. So thank you. To my blogging friends. To you all. Thanks for making my birthday possible.
Thank you for celebrating Thirty with me!
ENJOY AND ENTER, THIS IS A GREAT PRIZE!!
