Today we are Giving Away... (PRIZES CLAIMED)


Four Amazing Items from Flowers, Pins, and More

Nothing says, “Hey, today is your birthday. It is your special day. We, your family, remember. And we want you to know that we remember. And everyone who enters our abode today will know it’s your b-day. And they will make you feel special too.” Nothing says that whole paragraph in two simple words like a "Happy Birthday" Bunting Banner from Flowers, Pins, and More, who just so happens to be our featured company today.

I own one of these lovely banners and I think it is so much fun. It is something I can pull out for years to come each time someone in my family is having a birthday, party, or other type of celebration. You can order one side of the banner to say "Happy Birthday" and then custom order the other side to say whatever you would like, such as "Special Day".
But remember, the name of the company is Flowers, Pins, and More. Why? Because they sell Flowers, Pins, and More, of course. So I thought I would show you all of these items as well, because they are quite lovely, a perfect gift for you or someone you know. So while you are visiting their site today, go ahead and purchase a few items, you'll be glad you did.

Flowers: (so cute in hair…)

Pins: (so cute on purses, blouses, rainjackets, etc…)
And more (runner so cute on any table…)
Today Flowers, Pins, and More will be giving away the following:

Two people will win their choice of a 4-piece magnet set


One person will win their choice of a flower pin


And one person will win a small stroller size minky blanket, cow print
(minky=a little slice of heaven)

You can enter one of these great products from Flowers, Pins, and More up to THREE times today. This giveaway is only open to those living on earth (that's right, anyone anywhere on the planet Earth. So in other words, if you're a Klingon, SCRAM!).

For one entry, leave your first and last name in a comment.
Example: Jane Doe

For a second entry please visit Flowers, Pins, and More here. Look at their lovely products. Then return to Give Away Today and in a NEW comment tell us your first and last name and an item you wish you owned from Flowers, Pins, and More.
Example: Jane Doe: Flower Power Posy Pin

For a third entry, tell us your first and last name and a bad vacation you've been on (you know, since its vacation season and all). OR if you've never had a bad vacatoin, you are a lucky son-of-a-gun, and all you need to write for a third entry is: Never had One.
Example: Jane Doe: When our oldest child was eleven months old my husband and I thought it would be fun to go to Yellowstone as a family. Here's the miserable highlights, or if you prefer, lowlights: we watched the bear movie they show just before going to bed, I was lying in the tent frightened to death when an enormous lightening, rain, and thunderstorm started, so at 1:30 am--I kid you not, 1:30 am, my husband packed up the tent in the rain and we drove home. We referred to it as "Hell"owstone for years thereafter.

The winners of the fantastic products from Flowers, Pins, and More will be announced Thursday, June 4th. Please visit us then to see if you are our winner and to discover our new giveaway for the day. Thanks and we’ll see you tomorrow!

DeVonya Madsen - only a part of this vacation was bad, my youngest threw up all over me as we were getting in the elevator to ride to the top of the arch in St Louis. We had to leave and walk around the arch, covered, until the rest of our family made the trip to the top.

Rhonda Miller: Bad vacation? None immedidately comes to mind, but seemingly all have been riddled with lice, the flu (or motion sickness), bad weather, bad food, disabled vehicles, fighting children, and so on. Perhaps they've all been bad vacations and I've just never noticed - just always glad I'm ON vacation!

Summer Andrus - My husband and I decided to go camping the summer after we got married with all of the new camping gear we had received. We had a good time camping, but there were gnats EVERYWHERE. My face was a magnet and I looked like I had the chicken pox. I had to wear my hair down and close to my face for weeks while I waited for them to go away! Gross!

Shanna said...

Shanna Coleman: Last year we went to Vegas for two nights with our kids. The first night we went to a Buffet and the minute we got there my 2 year old threw up all over herself and the table. So I took her through the casino and upstairs to the restroom and cleaned her off then went back down to the restaurant, where she again threw up this time all over me. We left and I had to walk 5-6 blocks back to our hotel covered in throw up. That night we had several more incidents in the privacy of our hotel room. While on this trip my husband had a horrible headache which lasted the whole trip and we went to a horribly overpriced aquarium at Mandalay Bay.

I've never had a "bad vacation" but if I had to pick, it would be when we went on a road trip to Oregon with my husbands family. And 11 of us were all sharing a RV to drive down in!! It was HELL!! And to make things worse I was 3 months pregnant with my 2nd and still was experiencing morning sickness!

Stacey Fiessinger: went to gatlinberg with husband's family and went tubing on this river...it was really neat and glad we did it, BUT we didn't know what to do with our keys so my husband put them in his swimsuit (that was dumb now that I think about it getting wet and all) and when we were done tubing they were gone! How were we going to get back to Ohio you ask? Well it was so amazing, but a girl found our keys in the river and the automatic door opener (for our HOnda van) even worked! We were so lucky!

IandS said...

Stacey Morgan: Driving through the night from San Diego to Denver through blizzards in the mountains with puking kids. NICE!!!!

Anonymous said...

Kristi Richmond: Never had a horrible vacation, but there was the one when I was a kid and got strep throat right before we left (like in the er the night before to get antiboitics) and that was the year my uncle taught everyone to waterski and I wasn't allowed to go in the water because I was still sick.

tiffany schauerhamer: Unfortunalely my worst vaca was on my honeymoon! We decided to go to yellowstone, and we were just going to drive from orem to slc on our wedding night and get a room somewhere. Well there seriously was like a Star Trek convention and we couldn't get a room anywhere from Orem to tremonton. Finally I gave up at 3 am. I was driving whil my new hubby slep. Wonderful right! So we ended up sleeping in our car in a hotel parking lot on out wedding night. We drove the next morning to our hotel in yellowstone, got settled and went out to SEE yellowstone. We were about 5 minutes out and the car broke down. We were without a car, the entire time in yellowstone. Who knew water pumps were so expensive?! It took all our wedding money to fix it, and I stiil haven;t seen yellowstone! Maybe one day :-)

It didn't bother him a bit, but it was so exhausting both times. We're staying home this year and letting everyone come to see us!
