Bloglovin! Giveaway, Birthday & PMA Wednesday - 3rd Edition

Buckle up! Hang on! This is going to be a long post, because a lot is going on today. First up...Bloglovin' Giveaway linky. The awesome Amanda and Stacia, better known as the Collaboration Cuties and Holly, who we all flip for @ Fourth Grade Flipper, contacted me with an idea for an amazing giveaway. I was already planning on doing a birthday giveaway today, so here we go...

Hi fabulous followers!!

You have probably heard by now that Google Reader is going away on July 1st.  Well, Google Reader may be going away, but we don't want YOU to go away, so we hope that you will consider following our blog through bloglovin!  We know that change is hard...so we thought we might sweeten it up for you a little bit!

We are doing a giveaway for all of our fabulous followers that take the leap and switch over to bloglovin.  You may have already switched over!  In that case, this will be an easy entry!

If you have not yet switched or are not following our blog through bloglovin, then there are a few easy steps to follow.  You can go to our sidebar (that's the column on the right over there that shows our followers) and you can click the button that says Follow this Blog with bloglovin.  Or, you can go into the Rafflecopter below and click the link in the first entry, and that will take you to our blog on bloglovin.

You will need to set up an account with bloglovin so that you can follow us.  Please be sure to leave your bloglovin username in the Rafflecopter entry.

If you want to go ahead and move all of the blogs you follow from Google over, you can go to this link and it will take you through the super easy steps.  BUT, please go to our bloglovin link and make sure that you are following us through bloglovin.  To be sure, make sure that the blue button at the top of our bloglovin page has been clicked (it should be gray with the word following- if it's blue, please click it to follow!)

So, if you follow me by bloglovin, please enter my giveaway!!  ONE WINNER will receive a $25 Starbucks gift card!

Have I mentioned...?

So you say it's your birthday! It's my birthday too! That's right! Today is MY birthday! I don't know about you, but I look forward to this day EVERY year! I am not biased or anything, but if you know anyone else with a June 26th birthday, they have the BEST. BIRTHDATE. EVER. Why? It is 6 months until Christmas. At Christmas, it is 6 months until your birthday. Granted, June 25th would be slightly better.

As a kid, my mom used to hold back one Christmas present to open on my half birthday. So much fun!

Last, but not least...Today is also PMA Wednesday. Time to share some positivity.

Every night before I go to sleep, I try to remember this quote. When I pray, I always begin by thanking God for the day, but I need to include the things that I am thankful. To quickly, I jump into my prayer requests. Today, I am thankful for my journey this past year, my new bloggin' buddies, and all of the lessons I've learned. 

Now, it is your turn to link up and share your PMA for today.



  1. Happy Birthday, Kristin!!! You DO have an awesome birthday! Mine is January 27th -- too close to Christmas. :(

    I'm trying to link up to PMA Wednesdays but I don't see the Inlinkz button.
