Lucky Me, Lucky You (A Giveaway)

Lucky me! I'm so excited to share with you that my blog was mentioned in the June 2010 issue of Romantic Homes magazine.

Emma is especially excited that her bed, red apron and Christmas presents are all famous now! Who knew?

Lucky you! Since I'm the kinda girl that likes to share the joy with those around her, I thought this called for a celebration. I'm giving away a copy of this Romantic Homes as well as a copy of the At Home in Arkansas magazine that I was recently mentioned in.

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post by Friday April 30th at midnight Eastern time to have a chance to have your name chosen. That's it. You don't have to be a follower, announce it on your blog, hop on one foot, give a pint of blood or anything else. Although, I'll be honest, sucking up might help your chances.
