{blog love} my first giveaway :)

So, I am TOTALLY excited that  there are 100 of you out there that liked my blog enough to follow it. Sending lots of love to all of you! I'm even more excited that my 100th follower happened to be a lovely blogger I "met" on Tumblr a while back! She just started her Blogger blog - you should definitely check it out

I'm not sure if any of you saw on Twitter, but I had been thinking about hosting a giveway if I were to ever get to that elusive 100 mark. The day has come and I have made up my mind.

It is giveaway time!!! Drum roll please..........

So, since my blog started as a wannabe foodie/cooking blog back in 2010, and has since transformed into more of a lifestyle blog this summer, I thought that these SUPER ADORABLE monogrammed aprons had to be the perfect gift to giveaway to one of you. 

Apron will be purchased from Girly-Twirly.
[1] Monogrammed pink & white stripe Fish apron.
[2] Monogrammed navy & white stripe Lobster apron.
[3] Monogrammed pink & white stripe Shrimp apron.
[4] Monogrammed light blue & white stripe Crab apron.
Click on the numbers to see the pictures in more detail.

Every girl needs an adorable monogrammed apron like this in her kitchen. 

I want one. 

Bad.

If you don't think this apron is for you, still enter! It would be an adorable hostess gift. :)

And now for the not so fun stuff....
