Great Giveaway to a Mom with Teenagers!


Update: I will draw at 12:01 a.m. CST, February 2, 2008. I will post the winner a little later in the morning on Saturday.
Shannon at Rocks in My Dryer and Bloggy Giveaways is hosting her annual Bloggy Giveaway! So I wanted to jump on board and offer my first giveaway.


I am going to give away a gift pack for the harried Mom of teenagers that loves coffee, chocolate, and reading!


What a combo!


I am going to give away a 10.00 gift card to Starbuck's, some fine Dark Chocolate (good for your heart ya know), and would love to throw in the great book for parents of teenagers Boundaries for Teens by Henry Cloud and John Townsend.


To enter, leave a comment on this post. I will draw a random winner on Saturday, February 2nd. You do not have to have a blog to enter to win, but you do have to provide a valid email address. Once I draw a winner on Saturday, I will send you an email to get your mailing address so I can send you the gifts!

If you want to earn extra entries, just subscribe to my feed or mention this giveaway on your blog with a link back here. Please let me know if you are going to have extra entries so I can count you properly!


After you leave your comment, click over to Bloggy Giveaways for many more fun and exciting bloggy giveaways.


I hope you come back and visit!

Taryn said...

The best Valentine’s I’ve ever gotten were from my dad. He’s my ’step-father’ but he raised me since I was a small child and has always been my Daddy. We had a rocky time when I was a teenager because he just didn’t understand me - a bookish girl. He’s very quiet and was never overly affectionate or loose with words. Thats why when I get a simple card with “I Love you Taryn, Dad” written inside it means the world to me. When he says “I love you” his voice changes and I know he really really means it. I have the best daddy in the world.
